Ultimea, a company with offices in the US, Canada, and Germany, is raising funds on Kickstarter for its latest 4K laser TV, the Thor T60. This ultra-short-throw laser projector offers high brightness, Dolby Vision, and a built-in sound system. The Thor T60 features a DMD projection engine capable of delivering 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) Dolby Vision images up to 150 diagonal inches when placed just 16.3 inches away from the display surface.
What sets the Thor T60 apart is its RGB laser light source, which delivers an impressive 4,000 ANSI lumens of brightness. This makes it perfect for daytime viewing without the need to draw the blackout blinds. The laser light source can reportedly be used for up to 30,000 hours. The Thor T60 also features HCTC 3.0 technology, which enables it to cover the wide BT.2020 color gamut and support HDR10 content.
To enhance the viewing experience, the Thor T60 is equipped with an AI graphics algorithm that automatically adjusts contrast based on the content type. It also includes motion smoothing to improve on-screen clarity during action scenes. Gamers will appreciate the low input lag of between 10 and 25 milliseconds, which ensures responsive gameplay.
Running on Android TV 11, the Thor T60 offers access to thousands of entertainment apps over dual-band Wi-Fi. It supports smartphone mirroring via built-in Chromecast and includes Google Assistant voice control with the included remote. However, it appears that Netflix is not natively supported.
The back of the unit features two HDMI 2.1 ports (one with audio return), USB, Ethernet LAN, and analog/digital audio out. Additionally, the Thor T60 has two 15-W speakers hidden behind the front grille, offering Dolby Atmos and DTS-HD support.
Backers on Kickstarter can currently pledge for the Ultimea Thor T60 Triple Laser TV starting at $3,799, which is a 37% saving off the expected retail price. A higher pledge includes a floor-rising 120-inch anti-glare screen and two pairs of 3D glasses. Shipping is estimated to begin in November if all goes according to plan.
Overall, the Ultimea Thor T60 is a promising option for those who want a cinematic experience without a huge television dominating their living room. Its high brightness, Dolby Vision support, and built-in sound system make it an excellent choice for movie lovers and gamers alike.
