Optoma has just launched its new DuraCore laser ultra-short-throw (UST) projector, ZH500UST. The 5000-lumen Full HD 1080p projector is designed for retail, digital signage and complex installations that need lights-on projection.
James Fursse, Technical Product Manager at Optoma EMEA said, “the ZH500UST is the lightest and brightest ultra-short throw laser projector in its category. The 0.25 UST throw ratio, compact chassis, and versatile installation orientations make this an exemplary projector for digital signage solutions.”
With a media player and office viewer functionality built-in, presentations can be played without the need for a laptop or PC. And there is a signage mode for automatic content playback.
Weighing 5.7kg, the ZH500UST projector can be ceiling mounted less than half a metre away from a wall or shop window to project an image size of over 100 inches (254cm).
The installation flexibility of the projector is suited to areas with restricted access such as shop windows or retail displays. Supporting 24/7 operation and versatile orientation including portrait mode and downward projection, the ZH500UST also has four corner adjustment enabling users to individually warp each corner of the image to create a square image.
Powered by a lamp-free DuraCore laser light source, the ZH500UST delivers consistent high brightness of up to 30,000 hours uninterrupted operation in full brightness mode and superior colour reproduction for vivid images. Additionally, an independent IP5X dust resistant rating ensures total reliability even in the most demanding of environments.
For enhanced colour and contrast in brightly lit spaces, the Optoma ALR100 ambient light rejecting screen makes the perfect accessory.
