Can be seen working hard in the most taxing scenes ; spills light through its vents

Confident with motion Movement is handled confidently in most circumstances, although complex patterns in motion can cause a little hesitancy, and it’s a similar story with picture noise: the majority of scenes find the Optoma delivering nice clean...
