Fusion installed two Optoma ZU650 6,000 lumen lamp-free laser-phosphor projectors. This high brightness WUXGA resolution ProScene model with 2,000,000:1 dynamic contrast is perfect for quieter environments, smaller rooms or those with low ceilings due to the fact it has no lamp – so needs less cooling. It provides up to 20,000 hours of impressive, virtually maintenance-free operation without the need for lamp or filter replacements – ideal for venues that need 24/7 operation. And by eliminating the need for lamp or filter replacements, the ZU650 provides a lower cost of ownership.
The ZU650 features quick start-up and shutdown and reaches full brightness in seconds. Unlike conventional lamp-based projectors, the laser-phosphor light source requires minimal cool-down time.
Flexible installation is provided by 360˚ rotation and portrait mode operation, combined with an extensive lens shift range and five optional lenses. HDBaseT comes as standard and full support is provided for Crestron, Extron, AMX, PJ-Link and Telnet LAN protocols, which allow almost all functions to be controlled remotely across a network.
Ian Carling from Fusion said: “We chose this high resolution laser model because it is quieter than the equivalently-bright lamp-based models that we were considering. The white chassis blends with the ceiling and makes the install unobtrusive.”
The ZU650 comes in both black and white but, unlike other projectors, a custom colour option is available in virtually any colour to match the environment.
