Ultra short throw lens

With an ultra-short throw lens, you can project an impressive image greater than 130” from less than a meter away. This allows you to place the projector closer to the wall, reducing shadows so you can present with ease; perfect for interactive applications.

Unique Digital Lens Shift

General ultra short-throw projectors do not allow users to adjust image positioning with Lens Shift because of optical limitation. To give users more image control, Optoma adds the digital lens shift feature on ZU500USTe to provide greater installation flexibility while projecting large images from a short distance away.

Optoma Digital Lens Shift is a great feature for installing an ultra short-throw projector in constrained spaces or low ceiling space like a conference room, exhibit space or home theater because digital lens shift assists in properly aligning the projector’s image with the projector screen, making it far easier to correctly mount or position a projector for optimal image quality. It allows users to make an adjustment without physically moving the projector.

Total cost of ownership

The Optoma ZH500USTe requires 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 minimized.
