Optoma, a world-leading manufacturer of large display products and the #1 DLP™ brand in the Americas, announced its highest brightness professional laser projectors to date, filling a need for high-end installations, including the entertainment, exhibition, and digital signage markets.
At 17,000, 19,000 and 22,000 lumens respectively, the Optoma Ultra Bright Series ZU1700, ZU1900, and ZU2200 projectors establish an incredibly high brightness benchmark to the category, as well as extreme flexibility with eight interchangeable lenses to meet the needs of even the most complex installations.
With Extreme Black enabled, that turns the laser off when a full black image is detected, the projectors have a rated contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1. All projectors support passive 3D.
As part of Optoma’s DuraCore laser line up, the Ultra Bright Series high-performance projectors feature 4K HDR compatibility, pure engine video processing and color matching to produce visually striking, lifelike images with exceptional detail and high color accuracy. Additionally, the new models feature Optoma’s Visual Suite** software, along with an integrated camera, creating seamless setups with automatic image adjustments, warping, and calibration for consistently bright and uniformed images every time while reducing installation hours.
Strong reliability is at the core of Optoma’s Ultra Bright projectors, with 24/7 operation capabilities, up to 30,000 hours of laser lifetime, and an IP5X rating for optimal and dependable performance, even under more extreme conditions up to 122 degrees Fahrenheit / 50 degrees Celsius. With a robust metal chassis and modular design for easier maintenance, a multitude of connectivity options, and failsafe redundancy mode for instant source switching, the ZU1700, ZU1900 and ZU2200 projectors offer a solution for intricate installations, including multi-projector and dome projection applications.
“We are constantly innovating to address the unique and evolving performance needs of the ProAV market, and are thrilled to enhance Optoma’s award-winning projection portfolio, offering a full lineup of projector solutions ranging from 3,000 to 22,000 lumens,” said James Fursse, technical product manager at Optoma. “The Ultra Bright Series ZU1700, ZU1900 and ZU2200 projectors are carefully designed additions to our extensive range of professional display products, providing customers with high brightness, flexible solutions that deliver both on price and visual performance.”
A value-added solution, the Optoma Management Suite (OMS)™ is available on the Ultra Bright Series, offering IT administrators and technicians a real-time remote platform to monitor, manage, and diagnose multiple displays simultaneously. OMS enables technicians to check the status and make configurations to optimize performance and broadcast emergency messages, alerts, or announcements across on-site displays.
