Vivitek has announced the launch of the HK2200, a new 4K home entertainment projector. It includes exceptional image quality and advanced visual enhancement features are designed to transform the viewing and entertainment experience at home.
Compact and flexible enough to fit into any living room, the HK2200 boasts a feature set that will bring added vibrancy to music videos, even more, tension to thrillers, increased excitement to sports events and further intensity to the gameplay. Designed to entertain, the HK2200 delivers a large projection screen area greater than 220cm wide and more than 100in diagonally. The visual experience brings a new dimension in size – what were once small images on a mobile phone or on the television, now come alive on the big screen, right in front of the viewer in 4K. This turns an image from a picture being watched on a device’s screen, into a real-world view comparable to watching through a window.
Using the latest 4K-UHD DMD chipset technology from Texas Instrument, a full 8.3 million pixels are displayed on the screen and a Rec.709 colour gamut space and perfect colour reproduction mean true-to-life colour accuracy. Colours also benefit from Colour Enhancer and skin tone optimiser functions which fine-tune the saturation of colours and adjust hue only for skin tones so they are portrayed in the most accurate shades. Finally, the tool kit includes a full set of colour management and ISF-ready calibration options.
Holger Graeff, General Manager, Vivitek EMEA, commented, “The HK2200 is the right projector for tapping into today’s booming 4K trend. Audiences increasingly expect 4K content, and we’re offering them the very best in 4K screen size and a viewing experience that 4K TVs can’t beat.”
He further added, “Yet all of this viewing excellence comes in a compact and lightweight form that’s suitable for any living room while delivering a spectacular image that enables 4K content to shine. Factor in its value for money and the HK2200 presents a compelling case to film, music video, games and sports fans.”
More about it
Image detail and sharpness are enhanced by the ViviPeaking function, while an HDR function provides improved picture clarity. For content with fast motion such as sports, the ViviMotion frame interpolation function reduces motion judder by increasing the intermediate frames in between originals, in order to create a smooth film viewing experience.
As with all Vivitek devices, the HK2200 has an abundance of connectivity features. These range from two HDMI v2.0 inputs, which ensure a high-quality connection to multiple devices at home, like Blu-ray players, game consoles or PCs. It supports USB multimedia viewer, which gives users the ability to slideshow images or video playback from a USB flash drive. It also benefits from wireless mirroring function, which allows screen mirroring of compatible devices to the big screen. It is also Chromecast-ready and offers the option to use external wireless casting equipment and powers it with the USB port from the projector. Additionally, the HK2200 features a 12v trigger function for external device control, such as activating a screen or a sound system when turning the projector on.
The HK2200 will be available from mid-November with an MSRP including the VAT of £1,399.
