The projector also supports the HDR10 and hybrid log gamma (HLG) high dynamic range (HDR) formats.
The NuForce soundbar employs individual woofers, full-range aluminum drivers and isolated enclosures to produce, "crystal-clear sound, balanced midrange and wide frequency response, producing realistic vocals for enhanced TV and movie watching experiences," according to NuForce.
Offering a choice of Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus surround sound decoding, the NuForce soundbar portion of the system utilizes the company's audio technologies to produce immersive multichannel audio.
