Optoma, a world-leading manufacturer of video and audio products, was awarded last week on the CES stage at International CES® 2018 as Best Home-Theater Product winner of International CES 2018 “Best of CES Awards” with its UHD51A 4K, voice-enabled smart home theater projector. Chosen from thousands of companies appearing at CES 2018, Optoma stood out to Engadget’s editors based on its level of innovation, quality of design, overall efficiency and market demand. Winners were chosen in 16 different categories.

Engadget awards companies that have demonstrated rich innovation and groundbreaking applications that are poised to disrupt industries. As the first Alexa skills-enabled 4K UHD projector, the Optoma UHD51A combines incredible quality and convenience at an extremely accessible price.

“Every year thousands of companies show up in Vegas to debut what they hope will be the next big thing in consumer technology and Engadget is there to find the real gems,” said Christopher Trout, Editor-in-Chief of Engadget. “In the five years that we've produced the official Best of CES Awards, we've seen some truly exceptional, sometimes incredibly bizarre products and 2018 is no exception. We're thrilled to crown the best of the best again this year.”

Editors at Engadget selected and presented this year's official "Best of CES" award winners. Along with widespread coverage and exposure across Engadget's networks, Optoma was awarded a custom-produced trophy on the Engadget stage during the final ceremonies, broadcast live on Engadget.com, YouTube, Xbox One, Roku and Apple TV.

The Optoma UHD51A 4K UHD voice-enabled home theater projector, unveiled at CES, integrates with Amazon Alexa Smart Home and Custom Skills to enable projection to fluidly align with speakers, screen, lighting and more in any smart home setting. With 2,400 lumens, 500,000:1 contrast ratio, and an RGBRGB color wheel and HDR10 with Rec.2020 / DCI-P3 Wide Color Gamut, the Optoma UHD51A packs a visual punch, with its clarity, brightness and eye-popping color. It also features a built-in 4K UHD media player and Android OS, along with a pair of HDMI 2.0 inputs with HDCP 2.2 support to ensure compatibility with the latest 4K UHD video playback devices and game consoles with HDR at 60 Hz refresh rates for unmatched image smoothness. It will be available in April for an expected street price of just $1,699.
