Optoma Adds Compact and Flexible Projectors to its DuraCore Laser Range – ZU506 and ZH506

Optoma has expanded its range of DuraCore laser ProScene projectors with the launch of two high-specification compact projectors – the ZU506 and ZH506.

These cost-effective, feature rich WUXGA and Full HD 1080p resolution projectors boast a brightness of 5,000 lumens and offer flexible installation with a generous zoom, vertical lens shift, four corner adjustment and portrait mode.

Philip Watt, Commercial Product Manager at Optoma Europe, commented: “Optoma’s new 506 series offers an affordable laser solution for customers who might otherwise be looking at high brightness lamp-based projectors. Taking proven technologies from our Pro AV range, they offer DuraCore laser in a small, virtually maintenance free product.”

Optoma’s DuraCore laser range champions an industry-leading laser light source along with an independent IP rated dust certification. The ZU506 and ZH506 deliver 30,000 hours in full brightness mode and continuous 24/7 operation. Additionally, IP5X certification ensures total reliability for peace of mind even in the most demanding of environments.

Designed for large venues such as schools and colleges, museums and attractions, houses of worship and corporate meeting rooms, the new projectors’ vertical lens shift and 1.6x zoom ensure quick and accurate installation. Four corner geometric adjustment is also included for uneven walls or where a projector placement is awkward and needs to be installed at an angle.

Once installed, these low-profile installation projectors can be managed and monitored easily over a network via the RJ45. Compatible Crestron RoomView® software can be used to power on/off, monitor, manage and control up to 250 projectors at the same time from any computer.
