The UHD50X has a manufacturer lumens rating of 3,400 ANSI lumens and a contrast rating of 500,000:1. Optoma has upped their game on this DLP® (Digital Light Processing) projector by choosing to use DLP BrilliantColortechnology and an 8-segment color wheel that Optoma says will produce “the truest and most accurate colors,” presumably, in this class or price point. You better believe that we’re going to check it out. Finally, Optoma is touting the UHD50X’s HDR (High Dynamic Range) 10 & HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) support, which the manufacturer claims will provide “the brightest whites, deepest darks, and lifelike color.”

8 SEGMENT COLOR WHEEL
The Optoma UHD50X incorporates an RGBWRGBW 8 segment color wheel, designed to achieve a more vivid color performance with 3,400 lumens of brightness. In addition, according to Optoma, their specialized color calibration and adjusting technologies allow the UHD50X to exceed HDTV Rec. 709 standards for truer, more accurate colors.
HDR10 & HLG
UHD50X supports HDR10 and HLG. High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a standard designed to display a higher dynamic range in video signals, showing the image with more brightness and color without losing any details.
When an HDR/HLG signal is detected, the projector automatically switches to HDR/HLG Display mode. Optoma’s HDR color mapping and tone mapping technology help optimize the projector to get the most out of HDR/HLG movies or games. In addition, the UHD50X allows users to adjust the HDR tone mapping according to the video content or environment.
AUTO 3D DISPLAY WITH ISF CALIBRATION SETTING
Optoma provides 3D Display mode to resolve the issues related to variations in the brightness of 3D images due to overlapping signals and specialized lenses. When a 3D signal is received, the system directly switches to 3D mode to elevate image brightness and contrast.
The built-in ISF Display Mode allows your calibrator to save your calibrated day, night, and 3D mode settings for the ideal viewing experience.
DLP® BRILLIANT COLOR TECHNOLOGY
DLP BrilliantColor Technology for Ultra-High-Performance (UHP) lamps is a technology that can achieve up to 50% improvement in brightness over traditional three-color solutions. In addition, DLP BrilliantColor technology offers up to six-color processing, enabling a wide color gamut and making it possible to produce over one billion colors.
DYNAMIC BLACK TECHNOLOGY
Dynamic Black can accurately control light bulb output power and automatically change based on different image brightness. There’s no need to use an aperture ring to adjust for dark scenes. With the Auto Gain function, details are more pronounced, and you can achieve a nearly three times increase in contrast ratio. The UHD50X Dynamic Black technology is one of the key reasons that this projector can display 500,000:1 contrast. In addition, the Dynamic Black mode makes darker video content present with more depth.
4K ULTRA DETAIL
The UHD50X is what Optoma calls a True 4K UHD projector. A Texas Instruments 4K UHD DLP Chipset, featuring a high-performance DMD, powers this projector. Incorporating TI’s XPR video processing technology is one of the significant advantages of this DMD technology. XPR provides fast switching allowing the UHD50X to display 8.3 million pixels (4x the number of pixels of 1080P). True 4K with fast switching XPR technology creates pixels horizontally and vertically in four ways to achieve 8.3M pixels on the screen, all faster than the human eye can see.
GAMING DISPLAY MODE
Optoma’s Color Lab simulations were carried out for gaming in different ambient light settings to calibrate and boost the details in the dark and develop the exclusive Game display mode. As a result, gamers will avoid getting stuck at a certain level, as they can find the gimmick hidden in the dark.
