The most advanced model in this range is the Predator GD711, a DLP-type projector with LED light source whose half-life is around 30,000 hours and that offers a 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) compatible with HDR10.

It is able to offer a color palette corresponding to 125% of the Rec. 709 space and offers some more than remarkable 4,000 ANSI lumens of brightness, which in theory should allow its use in rooms with a certain ambient light, achieving a dynamic contrast of 2,000,000: 1.

The projector will have several preset picture modes, including one for cinema with the maximum resolution of 4K, but also another specific for high frame rate games that displays a resolution of 1080p at 120 Hz or 240 Hz, the latter in the case of having it connected to a PC.

According to the manufacturer, it has a projection ratio of 1.22, so for example we can have a diagonal of 100 inches with a projection of only 2.70 m. It also offers us an Eco operating mode that lowers noise down to 23 dBa, although we assume that it will also reduce the light output offered on the screen.

Connectivity is covered by two HDMI 2.0 ports, audio output for external stereos, although we also have 5-watt auxiliary speakers built into the housing and three USB Type A ports, one for the projector’s hidden wireless dongle, another for connecting wireless accessories, and a 5V DC output that also allows you to update the firmware of the device.

Finally, note that the projector has a integrated app market that allows users to directly access services of streaming video without the need for other external equipment, connecting to the Internet through its wireless connectivity.
