2022 Laser TV Showdown
August 11, 2022, the web's leading projection specialty retailer has teamed up with Projector Central, The World's Largest Projector Resource to bring you this LaserTV Showdown - the Ultimate Ultra Short Throw Projector Shootout.

Projector Central is the world's largest database of projector information and one of the most authoritative resources and review websites in the industry.

Despite receiving several requests for sponsorship opportunities from the various brands competing, Projector Central decided it was best to self-finance the entire competition so that there would be no perception of influence and impropriety in regards to a sponsor's ratings or winning.

Projector Central did help wrangle up the sponsors and gear, provide the facility and most of the projectors, performed all of the dark room instrument calibrations via our ISF certified calibrator Dave Harper  (Rob did the bright room calibrations to the viewing space by eye) and provided technical, operational and at times, emotional support.

The activity recruited six expert judges from the world of projection, calibration and A/V professionals to pick the winner of this ultimate shootout.

How Picked The Best

The projectors were evaluated using a series of test patterns from  Murideo generators and movie/TV program clips Kaleidescape player, Oppo UHD disc player and DirectTV box that put each projector to the test.  Challenged their color accuracy, dynamic range with both SDR and HDR content, resolution/detail with still and motion video, image scaling/processing, contrast and brightness.

Each laser TV was paired with an identical 100" Spectra Projection Vantage ambient light rejecting screen engineered to work with UST projectors.

All of the projectors in the Laser TV Showdown were calibrated in 3 modes; SDR Day (Bright Room), SDR Dark Room and HDR Dark Room.

Additionally, some picture quality attributes were given different weights to reflect their importance to overall image quality with motion handling, 4,000-Nit Tone-Mapping, and Color Gamut given less weight than those related to color accuracy, contrast and black level.

While the cost of a laser TV is an incredibly important factor for most shoppers, price was not factored into the rankings; the judging was done purely on the basis of image quality.

Who will win the title of the best ultra short throw projector in the 2022 LaserTV Showdown? Let’s cut right to the chase and find out!

Best Ultra Short Throw Projector - Triple Laser:

#1:    Formovie Theater                                       Total Image Quality Score: 9.08

This projector is absolutely the new kid on the block and it was certainly hanging tough against the competition. Most of judges had never heard of the brand Formovie and believe that their expectations of it were not very high.

This projector just launched here in the USA early this summer and it is the enhanced and updated version of it's Chinese counterpart, the Fengmi T1. Formovie is the new brand-name for Fengmi and their Theater model adds Android TV 11.0 OS and a Color Management System (CMS) which allowed judges to calibrate this unit to allow it to compete and succeed against it's competition.

This ultra short throw projector wowed the judges with its vibrant colors, sharp picture bold contrast and deep black levels. Despite not being part of the judging criteria, this is the only projector that currently supports Dolby Vision and is also the least expensive of all the triple laser projectors. While its 41.9ms lag time may not make it the top choice for competitive gamers, it is more than adequate for casual gaming and still was faster than half of the other units in this round. However, those of you looking for 3D support will have to look elsewhere.

Based on its #1 ranking by judges and lowest price point, the would absolutely call this the top value in the entire competition.

Here is how the judges scored each triple laser ultra short throw projector:
