Talk to the projector: Optoma gets Alexa supportAlexa speaker owners can power up and adjust certain aspects of the projector using simple voice commands.
[MUSIC] Hi, David Katzmaier from CNET here, and I'm at CES 2018 with Optima. These guys make projectors, and they're coming out with the first projector that's compatible with Alexa. So if you have an Amazon Alexis speaker like an Echo or Dot, You can talk to it and use different commands to control the projector. Right now, they directly support power, input change, and volume. There's also some more advanced functions like picture modes or even changing the smoothness of a setting and they're saying that soon they're gonna come out with the ability to integrate with Amazon For example, you can have the projector turn on, and then the lights dim. And even the screen raise and lower, or turn on your whole entertainment system in the future. To enable this functionality, you gotta install a skill using the Alexa app on your phone. And then once that's installed, the projector itself doesn't need any additional hardware to get it to work. [UNKNOWN] is a 4K resolution projector. It's got an RGB color wheel that's new. The projector also supports HDR content and it's got a nice 1.3 zoom so you get a little bit of range moving back and forth on the screen. You're watching it now on a 100 inch screen, innovation screen, that's actually Alexa controllable by itself. You can raise and lower the screen itself with your voice. Optoma also includes a media player so you can play HDR and 4K content by plugging in a USB stick and of course it will work with pretty much any 4K and HDR device you plug in via HDMI. Optoma says the UHD 51A is gonna come out later in April. For $1700. I'm David Katzmaier at CES 2018. [MUSIC]
