Optoma has expanded its range of DuraCore laser ProScene projectors for the professional installation market with the launch of the ZU720TST, the ‘world’s first’ short throw, 7,000 lumens, fixed lens, WUXGA laser projector.
Following Optoma’s ZU720T, the ZU720TST projector offers the main features and benefits of its predecessor, including high brightness, colour precision and quiet operation, while offering a short-throw alternative, making it an ideal solution for a variety of end-user scenarios and professional environments, such as short-throw digital signage, edge-blending and projection mapping, simulation, and immersive installations.
The ZU720TST is 4K and HDR compatible and features a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, producing lifelike visuals with rich detail and bright colours. Designed to meet the demand for high brightness products that do not require interchangeable lenses, the ZU720TST offers a fixed, telecentric lens design with full motorised lens-shift and 1.26x motorised zoom and focus, delivering the same flexibility of interchangeable lens solutions at an affordable price-point.
Supporting continuous 24-hour operation and featuring built-in edge-blending, warping and four-corner correction, as well as 360-degree and portrait installation modes, the ZU720TST provides superior versatility to accommodate even the most complex installations. Weighing 12.7kg, the ZU720TST projector can be ceiling mounted from just over a metre away from a wall or display surface for seamless setups.
Engineered with DuraCore technology, the ZU720TST features a dust-resistant IP5X certified optical engine for 24/7 operation capabilities, offering true maintenance-free projection for up to 30,000 hours of powerful performance in Eco mode.
James Fursse, Technical Product Manager at Optoma said, “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. With its short throw, fully motorised 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.”
