Optoma Launches Flagship DuraCore Laser Projector: ZU1050

Optoma has launched its new flagship 10,000-lumen professional installation laser projector, the ZU1050.

Perfect for simulation, live events, museums and lecture theatres, this powerful WUXGA projector featuring MultiColor Laser (MCL) technology forms part of the DuraCore range which combines longer-lifetime light source and an independent IP rated dust certification. Designed for even the most complex installations, the ZU1050 offers seven interchangeable lens options for maximum flexibility.

For large-scale projection or stacking, the ZU1050 features built-in edge-blending and warping. It also offers portrait and 360-degree orientation support. Additionally, an HDBaseT™ input is included to simplify cabling requirements and reduce installation complexity, saving time and reducing costs.

Optoma’s DuraCore laser range champions an industry-leading laser light source delivering a minimum of 20,000 hours in full brightness mode. The ZU1050 also achieves superior colour rendition through MCL technology which combines red and blue laser diodes to enhance colour performance and deliver visually striking lifelike images with exceptional detail.

James Fursse, Technical Product Manager at Optoma Europe, commented: “The ZU1050 joins our ProScene range of DuraCore laser projectors. Aside from the excellent reliability and performance, DuraCore technology means virtually maintenance-free operation. The ZU1050 is suitable for all types of installations with multiple lens options including an ultra short throw lens and single-projector dome lens.”

Featuring an airtight optical engine that has been independently certified as IP6X, this latest professional ‘fit and forget’ model offers spectacular versatility and reliability. Designed for continuous 24/7 operation, it supports 360° and portrait orientations and with 100 variable power and luminance settings, is perfect for simulation, live events and almost any challenging environment.
