Optoma has officially confirmed that it will debut a 4K UHD laser projector at ISE 2017, and it comes in the form of the 4K500.
It’s not the first time Optoma has teased a projector with a 4K resolution, that honour goes to the company’s presence at InfoComm 2016. The difference here is that the 4K500 should be released to commercial installers some point later this year.
This single-chip DLP projector promises to avoid alignment issues to deliver a 4K image without any ghosting. Each mirror inside the projector is capable of switching over 9,000 times per second, creating two distinct and unique pixels on the screen during every frame to deliver full 4K UHD resolution.
Elsewhere on the company’s stand, Optoma will be showcasing its new ZH400UST ultra-short throw projector. This projector will be on display in the ‘retail zone’, where four ZH400UST ProScene models will be edge blended to create two large displays.
Optoma is also using ISE 2017 as an opportunity to debut the ZU850, which will sit atop the projector manufacturer’s line-up and will boast several features that will distinguish it from other projectors in the line-up.
One stand-out feature will be its MCL (Multi Colour Laser) technology. This technology is unique to the DuraCore range, combining a longer-lifetime light source with an independent IP rated dust certification.
In terms of brightness, the ZU850 will boast an 8,000 lumen output, while a dual stacked installation will deliver a total of 16,000 lumens.
Little else is known about the ZU850, but it will be available for commercial installers to view at the company’s stand 1-H120 at ISE 2017.
