Gaming On The Big Screen: Optoma GT1080 Projector Overview

Gaming On The Big Screen: Optoma GT1080 Projector Overview

There was a time when the notion of a forty or 50-inch living room display was the stuff of dreams, however now it's commonplace, delivering an immersive gameplay experience by giant, pin-sharp imagery - however what if we wish to go greater and really replicate the epic, cinematic really feel that many triple-A titles are striving for? We might sit nearer to the display or adopt a desktop set-as much as help carry us closer to the motion, but this nonetheless falls short of replicating the true huge-screen experience at home. HDTVs can't really deliver, but projectors can, offering up mammoth one hundred-inch photographs for the price of a standard living room flat-screen display.

When selecting a projector for gaming in the average front room, there are a number of things to look out for: low input lag, fast panel response to reduce movement smearing, and a high level of brightness to give photos enough pop to work in lighter coloured environments. Throw ratio and distance are additionally vital, as these determine how distant the projector must be from the screen in an effort to produce a large image. In case you are planning to fire up massive pictures in a small room with solely two to three metres' clearance from one finish to the other at finest, a short throw projector might be the very best option.

With that in mind, the Optoma GT1080 caught our eye because it covers several of our requirements. Marketed as a short throw projector aimed specifically at huge screen gaming in small rooms, it retails for around £650 and may produce a one hundred-inch picture from just underneath a metre away. That includes low input lag and a whopping 2800 lumens brightness, the projector sounds like it might be a good choice for gamers seeking to take pleasure in a big screen experience in less than excellent viewing conditions.

But how well does the GT1080 really perform in the average living rooms, where light-coloured walls and light reflections could significantly affect image quality? Are the massive screen sizes made potential through the use of a projector sufficient to provide an immersive cinematic experience at residence over a traditional HDTV or desktop set-up? And are there any downsides to taking part in games on mammoth screens, particularly when native 1080p gaming projector resolutions are not set in stone for PS4 and Xbox One?
