From ProjectorCentral's ISE 2020 visit.

"As expected, the Optoma booth was filled with projection solutions, as well as a wide array of LED flat panels and a second, larger offering in the company's developing line of large LED wall panel displays (a 163-inch two-piece model was added to the 130-inch all-in-one display introduced last year). Among several new or recently shipping models was the UHD42 home entertainment projector (which will be known as the UHD50 in the U.S. when it ships in the March/April timeframe). This compact bulb-based model features 4K UHD resolution and up to 3,200 ANSI lumens, but it's claim to fame is that it's said to be the first gaming projector that supports a 240 Hz refresh rate (with 1080p content, and assuming the source has the graphics capability to deliver such a signal). Input lag is said to be around 16 ms. It's also HDR and HLG compatible, and features a 1.3x zoom lens with vertical lens shift and an onboard 10W speaker. U.S. pricing hasn't been announced, but it's expected to be available overseas for 1,249 Euro, or about $1,400 U.S. An alternate model, designated the UHD30 for both markets, will offer a different zoom and only a single HDMI port vs. the two found on the UHD42/50, and will be offered for 999 Euro, or about $1,100 U.S."

I don’t think you’ve bought THIS projector.

Model numbers can be a little confusing but this UHD50X hasn’t been released yet. Maybe you have the UHD50?

The more I try to differentiate and remamber all the different model numbers for projectors the more annoying it becomes. Why can't they just use the same model number for the exact same projectors?

Why is this product releasing with only HDMI 2.0 in 2020 and not 2.1?
You cannot get full 4K/60 with chroma 4:4:4 and HDR with HDMI 2.0.

projectors are like 5 years behind TVs. I'd be surprised if there are any projectors releasing in 2021 with HDMI 2.1
