Designed for even the most complex professional installations, the ZU1050 and ZU660 offer multiple optional lenses ranging from TR0.36~5.5 for ultimate flexibility.

Gordon Wu, Assistant Vice President at Optoma APAC, commented: “The ZU1050 and ZU660 join our ProScene range of DuraCore laser projectors. Aside from the excellent reliability and performance, DuraCore technology means virtually maintenance-free operation with an industry-leading laser light source delivering a minimum of 20,000 hours in full brightness mode. These two WUXGA projectors are suitable for all types of installations with multiple lens options including an ultra-short throw lens.”

The ZU1050 is an ultra-bright 10,000 ANSI lumen, WUXGA projector.  It achieves superior color rendition through MCL (MultiColor Laser) technology, which combines red and blue laser diodes to enhance color performance and deliver visually striking lifelike images with exceptional detail.
