Optoma 4k CinemaX P2 laser projection system turns any white wall into a massive TV display

Any white wall can be turned into a giant 4k display with Optoma’s new CinemaX P2 4k laser projection system.

Designed to sit unobtrusively in any living space, with built-in soundbar and wireless connectivity, this ultra short throw projector can cast up to a 120-inch image from an adjacent tabletop or unit.

The CinemaX P2 has a built-in 40W stereo soundbar, and is Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa compatible, so you can use voice commands to power up and select content.

The projector has three HDMI inputs. Use one for a streaming media player like a Fire TV stick, and you’ll be able to turn that blank wall into a Netflix, Amazon prime or Disney+ cinema screen in minutes.

The CinemaX P2 is an all-in-one entertainment solution

The CinemaX P2 supports 4K UHD resolution and is HDR compatible. Brightness is rated at 3,000 ANSI lumens, which means you can use it in rooms with ambient light (although for a full popcorn experience you might want to hit the dimmer switch). It even supports 3D with optional glasses.

Typical uses would be for movie nights, sports events and gaming, however Optoma suggests parents can turn the CinemaX P2 into a productivity tool for distance learning, using the Tap Cast app and screen mirroring, and even Working From Home.

For those with an artistic bent, the laser projector can also present curated artworks from renowned digital artists through Framed, a digital art showcasing platform.

For maximum contrast and brightness, the CinemaX P2 can be partnered with Optoma’s fixed 100-inch ambient light rejecting ALR101 screen. Using a specialised screen surface, it  reflects a projected image for high contrast and solid colour saturation.

The CinemaX P2 is designed to blend with interiors

“Offering an innovative ultra short throw lens, the CinemaX P2 is easy to place and play, enabling families and households to view an immersive large-screen experience from only inches away from the screen,” says says Kishan Mistry, Product Manager at Optoma.

“Combined with cinema-quality sound, and smart-home integrations at an attractive price point, the CinemaX P2 is the ultimate home entertainment solution.”

Ultra short throw projection systems like the CinemaX P2 continue to grow in popularity, more recently in the US, but particularly in China where they are often generically referred to as Laser TV devices. 

The ability to enjoy a cinematic big screen experience, without installing a traditional projector, or turning over floorspace to a large screen TV or impacting interior design, has obvious appeal.

The Optoma CinemaX P2 sells for £3,000.
