Optoma has launched a new laser projector for professional installations such as museums, conference rooms and lecture halls. The ZU720TST is billed as the world’s first short-throw, 7,000-lumens, fixed-lens, WUXGA laser projector.
“Building on the success of the ZU720T, we are thrilled to expand our line of DuraCore laser ProScene projectors with the ZU720TST, which will further address the various needs of our ProAV customers,” said Optoma’s James Fursse. “With its short throw, fully motorized zoom, focus and lens shift, along with a compact chassis and several versatile installation capabilities, the ZU720TST is ideal for simple, one-person installations and perfect for areas where space or accessibility may be limited.”
The unit’s laser source is reported good for up to 30,000 hours of use in eco mode, and the optical engine is resistant to dust to IP5X standards. The projector offers a throw ratio of 0.75-0.95:1 and can display up to 300 diagonal inches at 241.34 inches away from the wall. Maximum resolution is 1,920 x 1,200 at up to 7,000 ANSI lumens.
The new DuraCore family member also supports the display of HDR content, boasts 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast, features motorized lens shift for set up ease and offers 1.26x zoom.
