Optoma is expanding its line of 4K UHD home theater projectors with the introduction of the CinemaX D2 series. Optoma says this is an upgrade to the previous CinemaX P2 projector, and the improvements are based on user feedback. The series includes the CinemaX D2, an ultra-short-throw 4K UHD laser home projector, and the CinemaX D2 Smart, which adds smart TV features thanks to the included Android TV dongle.

Ultra-short-throw projectors are ideal for people with limited room space because they can throw an image onto the screen from a short distance. Traditional short-throw projectors need at least four feet to eight feet away from the screen to produce high-quality images, but not all rooms have this much clearance. This is where ultra-short throw projectors can help. The CinemaX D2 series, for example, can project 100-inch images from less than a foot away from the screen. If you increase the distance a little, you will get images up to 120 inches in size.

The CinemaX D2 series has 3,000 lumens and a contrast ratio of 1,800,000:1, which is oddly a bit lower than its predecessor, the CinemaX P2 projector, which offers the same brightness but with a contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1.

The biggest boost this series offers is Enhanced Gaming Mode, which claims “blur-free visuals and low latency” with response times of 16ms in 4K at 60Hz and 4ms in 1080P at 240Hz. The 30,000 hour lifespan (same as the predecessor) seems to be slightly higher than other ultra short throw projectors in this price range. Both D2 models have three HDMI 2.0 inputs, instead of the P2’s dual HDMI 2.0 and single HDMI 1.4 inputs.

In terms of sound, the new series offers eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) sound with support for Dolby Atmos pass-through for better sound. An internal pair of speakers provides two-channel stereo with 10 W each.

We’re not entirely sure that the CinemaX D2 Smart justifies its higher price compared to the base D2. The Smart model comes with Android TV features, but you have to use the included Hako dongle — a small external device with its own remote control. But given that it’s not built directly into the D2 Smart and you can buy a Chromecast with Google TV for just $50, we’re not sure why you’d want to spend $200 more for the D2 Smart when the D2 is essentially the same projector but without the dongle .
