Image quality

Superb image quality is at the heart of every ProScene product design. At every step, commencing with the incredibly reliable, high resolution WUXGA DLP® chip, where the image is initially created, via the laser phosphor light source, through to the precision optics to focus the image on screen, accuracy and integrity of the image are paramount.

ProScene chose DLP® technology for its image quality and unmatched reliability. The reflective nature of DLP® micro-mirror technology provides highly efficient bright images with great contrast whilst maintaining precise color accuracy and natural, real-world color reproduction. For demanding professional applications, the proven reliability of DLP® technology makes it the obvious choice.

Better than full HD resolution

Where detail really matters, the full WUXGA (1920x 1200) resolution offers 15% more pixels than 1080p and 60% more than SXGA+. This enables unscaled full HD video and extra detail. Time code information can be displayed onscreen at the same time, perfect for soundtrack recording and video editing where precise timing can be critical.

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.

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.


All ProScene projectors are designed for continuous 24/7 operation. Only the most reliable, industry proven components are used to ensure superior reliability. This hard-earned “capability” has been meticulously developed over a decade of designing and supporting millions of projectors the world over. The dust-sealed, filter-free design prevents dust and dirt from affecting the system – ensuring optimal image quality with minimal maintenance. ProScene customers can therefore be confident that, as one of the most reliable projector brands in the industry today, Optoma has a reputation for service excellence that is well deserved.

Constant brightness

Some installation applications such as control rooms, simulations and museum exhibits do not require the full brightness of the ZU650. In this case lowering the brightness can extend the laser-phosphor light source life span and “constant brightness” modes can be enabled to keep the brightness more consistent for longer without the need for costly lamp changes.

Enhanced color gamut

The laser phosphor light source provides benefits such as a sealed mercury free optical design to prevent dust entering the projector, minimal warm-up and cool-down time, and long life light source operation of up to 20,000 hours with minimal maintenance.

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.

Quick start-up and shutdown

The ZU650 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.

Installation Friendly & Flexibility

Installation versatility

To help meet the seemingly limitless challenges of ProAV installations the ZU650 provides five lens options with motorised zoom and focus to ensure you can get the image size you require. Motorised lens shift helps you get the image exactly where you want it.

There are five optional lenses, all of which can be easily adjusted via motorized lens-shift, zoom and focus.

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.


In situations where only absolute darkness is good enough, the ZU650 has an ExtremeBlack mode to provide total blackout. Perfect for scene changes during live performances where traditionally a mechanical shutter would be used.

Color matching

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

Brightness matching

The brightness of a projector will vary throughout its life. To correctly match multiple units, the ZU650 has multiple light source power options to achieve the correct matched brightness level.

Edge blending tools

No two projectors are completely identical. When performing complex, or even simple edge-blend projects using multiple projectors, it can be difficult to achieve good results if the images do not match. This projector incorporates the following features to ensure high quality and consistent results.

The distinct advantage of our longer lifetime light source is consistent brightness that resists decay for longer. This is verification that DuraCore laser projectors are the perfect fit for multiple blending applications where brightness consistency is key.


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.

Projector security

The ZU650 features both a Kensington lock and security bar for enhanced theft prevention.


System integration control

Multiple ZU650’s can be monitored over LAN and also provide the user with an email message alert in case an error occurs or a light source fails or needs to be replaced, using Crestron RoomView. While the web browser interface and full support for Extron’s IP Link, AMX dynamic device discovery and PJ-Link protocols, allow almost all aspects of the ZU650 to be controlled across a network, keeping you in control, wherever you are.
