Vivitek Introduces Two Laser Ultra Short Throw Projectors

Vivitek, a leading brand of visual display products, is introducing the DH765Z-UST and the DW763Z-UST, the latest Laser Ultra Show Throw projectors to join its comprehensive range of imaging solutions. Capable of being installed in places that would prove challenging for conventional projectors, the two new devices blend Vivitek’s advanced technology, durability and value for money to create visual solutions as compelling as they are flexible.

Their ultra-short throw projector design with embedded reflective mirror allows for a projection size of 80” to 150” diagonal image from a mere 40cm away from the screen, an extremely close distance to the projection surface. Thanks to this design, the projector set up will prevent light glare in the presenter’s eyes as well as creating a shadow-free image while standing close to the screen. With the DH765Z-UST, users can enjoy FullHD 1080p, while the DW763Z-UST delivers WXGA resolution. Both models offer an advanced laser phosphor light engine for superior brightness and colour uniformity and high 3,500 ANSI lumens of brightness with a crisp 12,000:1 contrast ratio.

The new solutions are ideally suited to places where there may not be enough space for a conventional projector or in venues where mounting to the ceiling is complicated, or the interior design precludes the installation of a projector. The DH765Z-UST and the DW763Z-UST provide the flexibility needed by museum applications, digital signage displays, corporate reception halls or in education. In addition to this, the projectors are maintenance free, thanks to their lampless laser light source design, which delivers up to 20,000 hours of operational time.

Boasting DLP® and BrilliantColor™ technologies, the new models ensure optimal black levels as well as vibrant, colourful images while the multiple segment colour wheel delivers the best possible image quality.

Engineered for durability and longevity, the models feature a sealed optical engine and an enhanced ventilation system that’s designed to minimize the impact of dust, ensuring years of trouble-free and reliable performance.

In terms of set up, the manual zoom and focus provide both easy adjustment and positioning flexibility. They are flexible too, with a wide array of connectivity options, including two HDMI, component, composite video, s-video and VGA-in/out, while the embedded 10W audio speaker and multiple audio-in and audio-out ports provide plenty of options for external device connection.

The models also offer full 3D functionality support and are network ready for integration, monitoring and management via RJ45. Meanwhile, anti-theft security features include a Kensington® security slot and a PIN lock keypad to ensure that these desirable solutions remain in place.

Commenting on the introduction of the Vivitek DH765Z-UST and the DW763Z-UST, Holger Graeff, General Manager Vivitek EMEA, said: “Vivitek kicks off 2017 by raising the bar with respect to Laser Ultra Short Throw projector performance and flexibility. These new models answer the need for projectors that are ideally suited for complex environments without compromising image quality, feature set or durability.”
