Designed to suit challenging installation environments, the ZU800SA includes 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. 20,000 hours provides a staggering 13 years of normal use*1 or 2.2 years if run continuously 24/7.

*16 hours per day, 250 days per year

Airtight optical engine

The ZU800SA 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.

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 ZU800SA 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.

Compact and quiet

Due to sophisticated thermal engineering, the ZU800SA is compact in size allowing for an easier install. The advanced cooling laser diodes enable the projector to run more efficiently with 10% higher heat dissipation. This efficiency makes the ZU800SA produce less noise, and in turn extends the overall lifetime of the projector whilst maintaining high brightness.

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

Ultimate color performance

The ZU800SA boasts a wide color gamut covering 99% of REC. 709. Our advanced color technology, multiple settings and advanced features enable users to enjoy long-lasting, reliable and precise color – from vibrant, punchy presentations to lifelike images.

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

Engineered for 24/7 continuous operation in 360° and portrait orientations the ZU800SA comes with seven optional lenses ranging from TR0.36~5.5, and 100 adjustable brightness steps to control the laser power from 20%~100% making this flexible projector perfect for professional demanding applications such as simulation, live events, museums or theme parks.

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.

100 constant power and luminance modes

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 luminance modeThere are 100 adjustable steps to control brightness from 50%~100%. Brightness can be kept constant at desired level. Very useful for blending.

Corner adjustment

Fast and simple geometric correction using individual corner control

Color matching

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

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.


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.

Picture by picture / picture-in-picture

The ZU800SA 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.


System integration control

Multiple ZU800SA’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 ZU800SA to be controlled across a network, keeping you in control, wherever you are.

Project Green

We know that improving our products is the best way to reduce our impact on the environment. That's why at Optoma we design our products to have a long usable life, use fewer materials, ship with the minimum packaging and be free of all possible toxic substances. Naturally, energy efficiency and being recyclable are built in at the design stage. With each new product, we strive towards minimizing our environmental impact.

Eco friendly and highly efficient

Cut up to 30% from your energy bills using 24-hour automated power scheduling to ensure that projectors power off when not in use.

Direct power on

The projector will start up instantly when power is supplied to the unit. This eliminates the need to manually turn on the projector via the remote control or the keypad, ideal for use in rooms with a “master” power switch.

Auto power off

If after a pre-determined time the projector does not receive a signal, it will turn itself off automatically, conserving power and extending the life of the light source.

Eco standby mode

Reduces energy consumption to less than 0.5W when the projector is not in use.

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.

Projector security

The ZU800SA features both a Kensington lock and security bar for enhanced theft prevention.
