POMPTON LAKES, N.J. - Nov. 9, 2023 - PRLog -- ProjectorCentral, "The World's Largest Projector Resourceā„¢" and, the leading online retailer of high quality projectors and screens, and have announced the results of their 2nd Annual Laser TV Showdown.

The October 26 event at's New Jersey headquarters faced-off nine ultra short throw projectors as a means to compare the rapidly growing Laser TV market and guide consumers to the best performing options to meet their needs. Rob Sabin, Editor in-Chief at Projector Central acted as an independent editorial authority to execute the evaluations with a team of expert judges from the audio/video press.

The Setup
The projectors were evaluated side by side using a series of test patterns and movie/TV clips.

All of the UST projectors in the Laser TV Showdown were calibrated in 3 modes; SDR Day (Bright Room), SDR Dark Room and HDR Dark Room with all calibrations performed by ISF certified calibrator, Sammie Prescott, JR.

The judges were given ballots to rate each projector for specific attributes of picture quality, such as Color Accuracy, Contrast, Black Level/Shadow Detail, and Detail/Sharpness.

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.

Not only were the judges tasked with attributing a score to specific criteria, they were also asked to pick their top 3 overall choices, taking everything about the projector into account and that "Judge's Pick" ranking is how the awards were given this year.

The Winners
Based on the judge's observations, the top spot in the competition for the 2nd year in a row went to the Formovie Theater ($2,999). It was a resounding top pick for this year's judges with 5 out of 6 choosing it as their #1 pick and the 6th judge choosing it as #2. This fact that this projector was the overwhelming favorite of the judges earns the Formovie Theater the top spot as the best ultra short throw projector for 2023.

In 2nd place was a tie between the Epson LS800 ($3,499) and Hisense PX2-Pro ($2,997). In 3rd place was the Leica Cine 1 ($8,995).
