Optoma business projectors are designed to provide excellent image quality, flexible installation options, and extensive connectivity features, making them ideal for use in various corporate settings.
To enhance its lineup, Optoma has unveiled the ZW350ST and ZH350ST, two compact, short-throw laser projectors ideal for corporate spaces such as conference rooms and boardrooms. The ZW350ST delivers WXGA (1280x800) resolution and has a rated brightness of 3600 lumens. The ZX350ST can reproduce Full HD (1920x1080) resolution, and its rated brightness is 3500 lumens.
These projectors are the most compact WXGA and 1080p laser models from Optoma. Even though both units are rated to deliver at 3500 ANI lumens of brightness, due to their sleek design, they are about 34% smaller than previous models.
The ZW350ST and ZH350ST feature extensive connectivity options and flexible installation features, with an external power supply that provides added reliability, portability, and energy efficiency. These projectors are designed for sustainability, with a DuraCore laser light source that guarantees up to 30,000 hours of lower-cost and maintenance-free operation, and up to 45% less power consumption than Optima’s lamp-based projectors. To further maximize reliability and reduce maintenance, both models utilize IP6X-certified optical blocks, which provide excellent protection against dust.
The compact size of the projectors and their packaging also supports Optima’s commitment to sustainability, allowing 2x more products to be carried per container and featuring up to 97% recyclable materials.
With 3,600 and 3,500 lumens and a dynamic contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1, the ZW350ST and ZH350ST produce sharp, vivid images with exceptional color accuracy. The short throw distance of these projectors enables bright and large-screen presentations with stunning clarity from just a few feet away. Their keystone and 360-degree and portrait mode operation allow for flexible installation in any orientation or location.
When asked about the new models, Ollie Blundell, Product Manager, Optoma, stated. “As we continue to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability, we are designing products that deliver not only superior performance and are built to last, but also consume minimal energy and have a reduced environmental footprint. The new ZW350ST and ZH350ST combine powerful DuraCore laser technology with essential features from our line of ProAV projector solutions, along with an eco-friendly design, delivering a lower total cost of ownership and the functionality that our users expect.”
The ZW350ST also supports the Optoma Management Suite (OMS)™, a real-time remote platform allowing IT administrators and technicians to monitor, manage, and diagnose multiple displays simultaneously. OMS enables technicians to check the status of displays and configure settings to improve performance. Additionally, OMS allows for broadcasting emergency messages, alerts, or announcements across on-site displays.
