ZH300UW

The Optoma ZH300UW is an ultra-wide short throw projector with a unique feature set, making it perfect for retail, corporate and education installations. The bright 3000 lumen solid-state light source uses laser-phosphor technology to replace the traditional projector lamp. A new generation of TouchBeam interactive technology enables several people to work simultaneously on the screen without using a pen, while the ultra-short throw (UST) projection lens generates a large 120” image from a throw distance of just 72cm. The ZH300UW provides a complete package with many new features, including two HDMI inputs, powered USB port, 10W speaker, 20,000 hour light source lifetime, and a compact chassis with a new mounting system for fast and simple setup.

The unique combination of features offered by the ZH300UW makes it suitable for a variety of special applications. No other projector delivers the unique blend of high resolution, ultra-wide 16:6 aspect ratio, ultra-short throw lens and solid state laser-phosphor light source, all backed up by Optoma’s unsurpassed service offering. Some examples of applications that can be achieved using this projector are illustrated below.

Museums, exhibitions and visitor centres

Interactive exhibits are a guaranteed way to capture interest at visitor centres. With stunning visuals now a frequent requirement for these types of installation, the ZH300UW’s high resolution makes it perfect for the task. With its ability to perform rear and downward projection, and also to operate in ‘portrait’ mode, the ZH300UW is perfect for large, touch-sensitive displays, offering a fully interactive experience to visitors.

Retail displays and digital signage

The ultra-wide display with its 16:6 aspect ratio enables the creation of unique displays, perfect for retail environments. The 3000 lumens deliver plenty of brightness - enough for striking, vibrant images, even in high levels of ambient light. Large images with a diagonal measurement of 140” can be generated from a throw distance of just 84cm. The ZH300UW is also capable of operating in portrait mode, facilitating the production of unique ‘tall-aspect’ digital signage displays.

Video conferencing

The ultra-wide 16:6 aspect ratio of the ZH300UW perfectly accommodates two 4:3 images in a ‘side-by-side’ format. This is ideal for videoconferencing, where the local and remote images are typically displayed alongside each other. Each image then has a resolution of 960 x 720 pixels, delivering all the required detail via a single projected display.

Classrooms

Ideal for classrooms, the ultra-short throw lens enables teachers to stand close to the screen without being dazzled by the projector. The interactive ‘TouchBeam’ technology allows up to 10 pupils to participate, using only a finger. The laser-phosphor engine avoids the need for replacement projector lamps, which keeps running costs low - ideal for schools, where budgets are often limited.

Control rooms

High resolution and high contrast make the ZH300UW particularly suitable for installation in control rooms, where fine lines and small text must be clearly visible. In addition, the long lifespan of the laser-phosphor light source and DLP panel makes the projector capable of 24/7 operation, and therefore especially suited to ‘always on’ environments.

Simulators

As industrial-grade simulators for aircraft, track cars and commercial vehicles become increasingly realistic, so the demand for widescreen, ultra-high resolution projection increases. Simulators can now be implemented using fewer projectors, reducing overall complexity in terms of hardware. Thanks to the native 1920 x 720 resolution, even complex, ultra-wide computer-generated images can be displayed with remarkable clarity.

Engineering and Design

CAD environments, architecture and 3D modelling all require projected images with absolute clarity and accuracy. The projector is fully 3D compatible, and can be used in conjunction with active shutter glasses to generate convincing 3D visuals.

Image quality

Image quality is of paramount importance for every product in the ProScene range. The ultra-wide DLP® chip has a unique 16:6 aspect ratio, while the precision short throw lens delivers a large 140” image from a throw distance of just 84cm.

ProScene uses DLP® technology for its image quality and unmatched reliability. The reflective nature of DLP® micro-mirror technology provides highly efficient bright images with great contrast whilst maintaining precise colour accuracy and natural, real-world colour reproduction. For demanding professional applications, the proven reliability of DLP® technology makes it the obvious choice.

Ultra-wide resolution

The ZH300UW features ultra-wide HD, with a resolution of 1920 x 720 pixels. This is ideal for the side-by-side display of two 4:3 images, each with a resolution of 960 x 720, making this projector perfect for video conferencing.

Digital signage and control room installations will also benefit from the ultra-wide 16:6 display, while the solid-state light source makes the ZH300UW perfect for ‘always-on’ applications.

Unique ultra-short throw lens

Ideal for almost any room in educational and corporate environments, the ZH300UW makes the most of the available space. The specially designed ultra-short throw lens produces images up to 140” in diagonal from very short distances, allowing the presenter to stand close to the screen without casting a shadow on the image.

Reliability

All ProScene projectors are designed for continuous 24/7 operation. Only the most reliable, industry proven components are used to ensure superior reliability. This hard-earned “capability” has been meticulously developed over a decade of designing and supporting millions of projectors the world over. The dust-sealed, filter-free design prevents dust and dirt from affecting the system – ensuring optimal image quality with minimal maintenance. ProScene customers can therefore be confident that, as one of the most reliable projector brands in the industry today, Optoma has a reputation for service excellence that is well deserved.

Reduced running costs

The ZH300UW is fitted with the latest solid-state light source, which uses laser-phosphor technology. This has a life expectancy of around 20,000 hours. The result is a dramatic reduction in both the running cost and maintenance requirements of the projector.

Enhanced colour gamut

The laser-phosphor light source provides benefits such as a sealed mercury free optical design to prevent dust entering the projector, minimal warm-up and cool-down time, and long life light source operation of up to 20,000 hours with minimal maintenance.

DLP® technology

DLP® technology from Texas Instruments® is widely recognised and acclaimed for its unmatched reliability and long lasting image performance. When combined with high brightness and native contrast ratios, it becomes the obvious choice for demanding applications. Independent testing has proven DLP® to be the most reliable of projector technologies. Whilst other technologies may show image quality decline after only a few thousand hours, DLP® technology can remain unchanged over hundreds of thousands of hours. Images remain accurate, and colours suffer virtually no degradation over time.

Total cost of ownership

For demanding applications, the total cost of ownership of a projector is not just in the purchase price, but also in expensive maintenance and service. ProScene projectors require very little maintenance, have no user serviceable parts inside and no filters that require periodic replacement. The result is low cost, predictable service cycles, enabling planned down time to be minimised.

We are so confident that the ZH300UW image colour quality will remain as good as the day you bought it that Optoma will guarantee it for five years.

Flexibility

Installation flexibility

The ZH300UW has a unique, ultra-short throw lens, making it perfect for installation in smaller spaces. The presenter can stand close to the screen without being dazzled by the projector, or casting a shadow onto the image.

Portrait and downward projection

Images can be projected in ‘portrait mode’, where the projector is operated on its side, to produce a tall, thin image. This is perfect for digital signage applications, particularly in retail premises.
