Optoma P1 short-throw laser projector has 4K resolution and a built-in sound bar

The all-in-one system delivers a 100-inch image from just 10 inches away and costs $3,000.


Looking for a huge home theater in a single box? Optoma's solution is this "smart-home-enabled all-in-one AV system" that integrates a sound bar into a short-throw 4K projector.

The Optoma P1 Smart 4K UHD Laser Cinema TV delivers a 100-inch image from just 10 inches away and is capable of 3,000-lumen brightness, which should be suitable for partly lit rooms. Its 4K resolution comes from a TI 0.47-inch DMD chip, which achieves a higher pixel count thanks to 1080p-worth of discrete pixels and some fancy mirror work.

The front-facing edge of the projector features an integrated sound bar designed by Optoma-owned audio brand NuForce. The sound bar includes aluminum full-range drivers, but there is no word on subwoofer-out capability. The P1 also works with Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant.
