The compact Vivitek HK2288 UHD-4K HDR home cinema projector boasts impressive specs now at a remarkable price.
We first brought news of the Vivitek HK2288 last year. Now, we can update you that the projector is available at a hugely discounted price. The compact (430 x 360 x 145mm (W x D x H)) Vivitek HK2288 promises peeper-pleasing big-screen detail. Furthermore, the new home theatre projector packs with low-latency processing for movie fans and gamers.
So, what does Vivitek offer for under £1500?

Vivitek’s budget breakthrough employs TI’s 0.66-inch 4K DLP DMD chip. The incredible processor generates UHD-4K’s requisite 8.3 million individual pixels complete with DLP DarkChip3 and BrilliantColor refinements for optimal black levels, and vibrantly.
4K and HDR
The chip’s innovative eXpanded Pixel Resolution (XPR) technology uses 4.15 million (2716×1528) mirrors. The mirrors are capable of switching over 9,000 times per second to deliver two discrete pixels for each mirror per frame. All that adds up to reproducing a native 4K image. In tests, this technology has been able to fully resolve a 4K 1-pixel line pattern and is, by expert consent, indistinguishable from native 4K projection – unlike pixel-shifting techniques employing standard 1080p chips.
The HK2288’s UHD-4K pixel resolution is enhanced by the projector’s fine shadow detail. Additionally, there’s the 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio thanks to its 2,000 ANSI lumens brightness.
Also, the specs continue with support for High Dynamic Range (HDR10) content.
Speed and throw
The 2288’s advanced video processing offers smooth upscaling and motion, as well as a low latency input lag (around 50 milliseconds). Comprehensive gamma and colour management adjustments are available to optimise a vast REC709 colour space from a six-segment RGB colour wheel.
The HK2288 is equipped with a usefully wide 1.39-2.09 throw, a 1.5x zoom, and vertical lens shift. According to Viviket, you can get a maximum diagonal image of 325-inches.
Connectivity includes three HDMI 2.0 inputs, and dual infrared sensors positioned front and back enabling easy remote control.
Finally, a lamp life of up to 4,000 hours in Dynamic Economy Mode rounds off the list.
