The ZU1050 is an ultra bright 10,000 lumens, WUXGA projector for the ProAV sector.  It features an industry unique MultiColor Laser (MCL) Technology laser light source design which delivers a wider color gamut while maintaining high brightness.  Perfect for bringing outstandingly bright, vivid, accurate colors with high contrast and detailed visuals, the ZU1050 enables spectacular image quality for every professional application.

ZU1050 features Optoma’s DuraCore technology with a 20,000 hour lamp-less laser light source enclosed in an IP6X certified optical engine to ensure reliability and minimal maintenance during its lifetime resulting in low total cost of ownership.

Designed to suit challenging installation environments, the ZU1050 supports 360-degree & portrait projection, 24/7 operation capabilities and 6 optional lenses ranging from TR0.36~5.5.

Optoma DuraCore Laser Technology – Brighter for longer


Industry leading lifetime is achieved using Optoma’s new DuraCore technology. Implementing advanced laser diode cooling techniques and an innovative dust resistant design, and light source lifetime at 20,000 hours.

Airtight optical engine

The ZU1050 has been independently tested and certified with an IP6X dust resistance rating. Outstanding dust resistance combined with exceptional brightness ensures industry leading durability; paramount for 24/7 maintenance free operation in challenging environments, the dust resistance was tested by an independent laboratory in accordance with ICE standard 60529 and was certified with an IP6X rating- airtight sealed optical engine.

Compact Form Factor & Lowest Noise Level in its Class

Thanks to its sophisticated thermal engineering, the ZU1050 has the most compact size among the 10,000 lm range of laser projector products.  This will save labor and equipment costs during installation. Due to the 10% higher heat dissipation, the ZU1050 produces less noise than the competition whilst maintaining the same brightness.

Sandwich structure

A complete reconfiguration of the heat pipes, fan and thermal fins enables an additional 10% total system heat dissipation.

V-shape structure on thermal fins

Precision etched thermal grooves on each individual fin take 10% more heat away from the system and results in 2% increase in brightness.

Quick start-up and shutdown

The ZU1050 features quick start-up and shutdown and reaches full brightness quickly. To maximize energy saving it also includes a ‘pause projection’ feature where the light source can be completely shut off. Unlike conventional lamp based projectors, the laser- light source requires minimal cool-down time.

Total cost of ownership

For demanding applications the total cost of ownership of a projector is not in the purchase cost, but in expensive maintenance and service. ProScene projectors require very little maintenance; have no user serviceable parts inside and no filters that require periodic replacement. The result is low cost, predictable service cycles, enabling planned down time to be minimized.

Ultimate Color Performance – ZERO trade-off between brightness and color

MultiColor Laser Technology

There is always trade off between brightness and color.  High brightness and correct color reproduction are co-dependent variables which require fine tuning  for the best combination.  With the ProAV industry demanding that color fidelity is equally important as brightness, Optoma’s MCL Technology defines outstanding balance in accurate color reproduction and exceptional brightness.

With red laser been incorporated into the light source, the ZU1050 has the ability to produce wider than REC. 709 defined red colors.  Overall, images will become more vividly alive without sacrificing brightness.

Image quality

Where detail really matters, the full WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution offers 15% more pixels than 1080p. This enables unscaled Full HD video and extra detail. Optoma laser projectors have adopted DLP® micro-mirror technology which provides highly efficient bright images with high contrast, maintaining precise color accuracy and natural real-world color reproduction.

DLP® technology

DLP® technology from Texas Instruments® is widely recognized and acclaimed for its unmatched reliability and long lasting image performance. When combined with high brightness and native contrast ratios, it becomes the obvious choice for demanding applications. Independent testing has proven DLP® to be the most reliable of projector technologies. Whilst other technologies may show image quality decline after only a few thousand hours, DLP® technology can remain unchanged over hundreds of thousands of hours. Images remain accurate, and colors suffer virtually no degradation over time.

Precision optics

High quality optical elements maintain optimum sharpness and focus uniformity over the entire image. Uncompromising optical quality delivers extremely low color flare and chromatic aberration resulting in a crystal clear, high contrast image.

Installation Friendly & Flexibility

360° and portrait projection capability

Images can be projected over a full 360° range along the vertical axis, including reproduction on a ceiling or floor. The projector can also be placed in portrait mode for applications such as digital signage or for tall thin projection areas.

24/7 operation

All ProScene projectors are designed for continuous 24/7 operation. Only industry proven components are used to ensure superior reliability.


4-corner adjustment, Pincushion adjustments, Horizontal/Vertical keystone adjustments to fit all scenario needs.

Color matching

This projector has a color matching system, which combined with accurate measurements can create seamless blends every time.

Built-in Warping & Edge Blending

User friendly PC interphase for multiple unit warping & edge blending adjustments.  Massive images can be achieved within time for a cup of coffee without the need to bundle external image processing boxes, lowering the budget for complex projects.

Carefully calibrated FW and gamma adjustments will provide smooth seamless blends.

AV Mute Function

In situations where only absolute darkness is required, the ZU1050 can provide a total blackout that functions like mechanical shutter.

Ultimate Control

Picture by picture / picture-in-picture

The WU630 supports picture-by-picture and picture-in-picture. Signals can be delivered simultaneously via the HDMI and DVI ports, for a PbP or PiP display from two digital sources – perfect for video-conferencing and other collaborative applications.

Versatile System Integration Control Protocols

Crestron RoomView, Extron’s IP Link, AMX dynamic device discovery and PJ-Link protocols are fully supported, allowing nearly all aspects of the ZU1050 to be controlled across a network, keeping you in control, wherever you are.

Advanced Connectivity


3G-SDI (Serial Digital Interface) is used for transmission of uncompressed, unencrypted digital video signals at a data rate of 2.97Gbit/s. The bitrate can support 1080p/60p Full HD video via one single coaxial cable up to 100 meters, which reduces the set-up complexity in live events or staging shows.


Uncompromised, uncompressed Full HD video, audio, network and control commands all delivered on a single CAT- type cable capable up to 100 meters/328 feet without signal loss makes installation hassle-free. HDBaseT simplifies cabling requirements and reduces installation complexity saving both time and reducing costs.

3D Sync In & Out

Flexibility for projects with complex 3D set up to ensure the projectors and the 3D shutter glasses are in sync.

Advance Features

Constant Power Mode

There are 100 adjustable steps to control the laser power from 20%~100%.  It means the brightness can dim to 20% of full brightness if your application requires.

Constant Intensity Mode

There are 100 adjustable steps to control brightness from 50%~100%.  Brightness can be kept constant at your desired level.  It is a very useful features for multiple projectors used to create a huge image.

Lens memory

This function shall be called “lens shift memory” to be exact. The ZU1050 is capable of memorizing the lens shift positions up to 5 sets. The ZU1050 will move whichever lens that is installed to the saved positions. Zoom and focus might need to be adjusted if required.

Frame delay

Due to there is 3D Sync in port on the ZU1050, this function will allow the 3D sync signal and the 3D images displayed to be synced and result good 3D display performance.
