Optoma has announced two new additions to its DuraCore laser ProScene projectors, with the new models both offering 5,000 lumens of brightness and WUXGA and Full HD 1080p resolution. Both of the new models have been designed for large venues such as schools and colleges, museums and attractions, houses of worship and corporate meeting rooms.
The new projectors have been designed to be cost-effective and feature rich, with a vertical lens shift, four corner adjustment and portrait mode all offered. The laser light source also allows for a low total cost of ownership, as the ZU506 and ZH506 offers 30,000 hours in full brightness mode and continuous 24/7 operation with virtually no maintenance. Additionally, the IP5X certification ensure the new DuraCore laser ProScene projectors remain working in just about any environment.
Philip Watt, Commercial Product Manager at Optoma Europe, commented, “Optoma’s new 506 series offers an affordable laser solution for customers who might otherwise be looking at high brightness lamp-based projectors. Taking proven technologies from our Pro AV range, they offer DuraCore laser in a small, virtually maintenance free product.”
The new projectors’ vertical lens shift and 1.6x zoom ensure quick and accurate installation. Four corner geometric adjustment is also included for uneven walls or where a projector placement is awkward and needs to be installed at an angle.
Once installed, these low-profile installation projectors can be managed and monitored easily over a network via the RJ45. Compatible Crestron RoomView software can be used to power on/off, monitor, manage and control up to 250 projectors at the same time from any computer.
