Optoma Partners with Navitar to Offer Fisheye and Ultra Long Throw Lenses for 4K UHD High Lumen ProScene Projectors

Press Release  |  Jun 23, 2020

FREMONT, Calif., June 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Optoma, the world's leader in 4K UHD projection technology*, and Navitar, a leading designer, developer and manufacturer of high quality projection solutions, partner to offer two lenses, an interchangeable ultra long throw and a fisheye lens for dome projection, compatible with Optoma's ZK1050 and ZK750 4K UHD high lumen ProScene projector models.

Featuring 10,000 and 7,500 lumens of brightness, respectively, and an impressive 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, Optoma's ProScene ZK1050 and ZK750 interchangeable lens projectors feature MultiColor Laser (MCL) technology and HDR10 for wide color gamut support to project incredible detail and color. These high-performance projectors are also equipped with a variety of key installation features, including built-in edge blending and warping, making them ideal for large venues, auditoriums, museums, houses of worship and digital signage.

Navitar has developed replacement lenses that complement Optoma's current line of interchangeable short, standard, and long throw lenses for the ZK750 and ZK1050 projectors. The NuView® 575MCZ087 offers customers an extra-long throw ratio of 9.1 - 16.2:1 with manual zoom and focus - ideal for the house of worship, rental, large auditorium and venues where long throw projection is the only option for challenging installations.

To achieve full 360° projection with the ZK1050 or ZK750, the Navitar HemiStar® HS30 fisheye lens is a single lens solution for dome applications. Laura Nice, Projection Optics Sales Manager with Navitar, adds, "The HS30 offers easy installation and full dome coverage. System integrators, especially those working in the simulation and museum segments, will find this to be a great alternative compared to the more complex combinations of multiple projection and blending technology."

"By partnering with Navitar, Optoma can now offer complete solutions for 4K dome applications and address the needs of challenging installation environments where a long throw lens is the only option," stated Brian Soto, Director of Product Management at Optoma Technology. "Additionally, as a result of testing performed by Navitar's projection experts, we can reassure system integrators, dealers, and consultants looking for a trustworthy partner, that the combination of the ZK750/ZK1050 with the 575MCZ087 or HemiStar HS30, will deliver the perfect image for the target installation."


The Optoma ZK1050 is available at an estimated street price of $27,999 through Optoma authorized dealers and distributors.
The Optoma ZK750 is available at an estimated street price of $20,999 through Optoma authorized dealers and distributors.
