Optoma has announced availability for their new ZH507 1080p single-chip DLP laser projector. It is a replacement for the ZH506 which was discontinued in July 2022. The ZH507 has an improved DuraCore laser phosphor light engine—rated for 5,500 lumens of brightness (up from 5,000), a 300,000:1 contrast ratio, and up to 30,000 hours of life (an additional 10,000 hours over the ZH506). The optical engine is IP6X rated, meaning it's completely dust tight with no ingress for dust.
The projector is capable of an image size ranging from a 20.2- to 320.4-inch diagonal. Placement for the projector is flexible thanks to the 1.6x zoom and throw ratio of 1.4:1-2.24:1. For a 100-inch diagonal image, the projector can be placed anywhere from 10.16 to 16.25 feet from the screen. (For full distance measurements look at the Optoma ZH507 ProjectorCentral Throw Distance Calculator.) The lens accommodates a +16% vertical optical shift, and ±30 degrees for both horizontal and vertical digital keystone correction. There's also auto keystone and since the projector uses a laser light engine, the ZH507 can be placed in any orientation—useful for installations with non-traditional, complex setups.
The Optoma Management Suite (OMS) is available with the ZH507, giving technicians the ability to monitor the projector remotely as well as optimize performance and send emergency messages across all supported displays on the network.
