Optoma has just launched its next generation ProScene ZU650 projector, the ZU650+. Building on the success of its ZU650, the new ZU650+ harnesses the same features as its predecessor but with improved colour.

The 6,000-lumen, WUXGA projector has a wider colour gamut coverage which the company says should noticeably improve reds and increase the efficiency and accuracy for greens and yellows.

It is the latest to join Optoma’s DuraCore laser line up, defined by a light-source lifetime of 20,000 hours in full brightness mode and an independent IP5X rated dust resistance certification.

Optoma has built the ProScene ZU650+ to be resistant to dust. In combination with the filter- free and lamp-less design, users shouldn’t need to do much maintenance. This should ensure a low total cost of ownership – ideal for inaccessible or hard-to-reach locations.

Designed for 24/7 continuous operation in challenging environments, this latest version is suitable for applications where the projector needs to be permanently installed and performing around the clock.

The ZU650+ comes with five optional motorised lenses 0.75 ~ 5.50 (lens dependent) and can be mounted in 360° or portrait mode to provide flexibility for installation.

James Fursse, technical product manager at Optoma Europe, notes: “The ZU650+ retains all of the features of its predecessor but with improved colour performance due to a new efficient phosphor wheel. This translates to deeper, richer colours that come closer than ever to the vast range of colours our eyes can appreciate.”
