Optoma has introduced the ZH507, a DLP and laser projector. Designed for businesses, the Optoma ZH507 features numerous ports, a high contrast ratio and supports 3D content. Currently, the Optoma ZH507 costs over €2,500 in the Eurozone.

Optoma has started offering the ZH507 in Europe, a laser projector that outputs at 1080p (1,920 x 1,080). According to the company, the DLP projector also delivers up to 5,500 lumens of peak brightness and a 300,000:1 contrast ratio. Primarily developed for professional use cases, the Optoma ZH507's laser light source should last up to 30,000 hours before it needs changing.

Additionally, the Optoma ZH507 offers a 1.4:1-2.24:1 throw ratio with a 1-10 metre projection distance. Optoma adds that the projector has a manual zoom that can be adjusted up to 1.6x. Also, the Optoma ZH507 provides keystone correction and has a vertical scan rate of 50-85 Hz, or 120 Hz, when viewing 3D content. Moreover, the Optoma ZH507 comes with the following ports:

  • Inputs

    • 2x 3.5 mm audio jacks
    • 1x 3.5 mm microphone jack
    • 1x Composite video connection
    • 1x HDMI 2.0
    • 1x HDMI 1.4a (3D support)
    • 1x VGA (YPbPr/RGB)

  • Outputs

    • 1x 3.5 mm audio jack
    • 1x USB Type-A (1.5A power)
    • 1x VGA

  • Control

    • 1x 12V trigger
    • 1x 3D sync
    • 1x micro USB service
    • 1x RS232
    • 1x RJ45

For some reason, Optoma advises people to 'request a demo' on its website, rather than providing an MSRP. Currently, the projector is orderable from a third-party seller on Amazon for €2,503.99. In other words, expect the projector to retail for over €2,500 when purchasing from Optoma directly.
