Projection Artworks mounted three ZU510T laser projectors to the ceiling structure angled down to project beautiful animations onto a book, wedding cake, bottle, and via a mirror – in a stand-alone window.
The team chose the ZU510T because it is a bright high resolution laser projector, ideal for use 24/7 with minimal maintenance.
Weighing just 11kg, the WUXGA projector boasts a brightness of 5,500 lumens. It has a 100,000:1 contrast ratio and, due to the combination of its solid state laser-phosphor light engine and DLP technology, produces exceptionally vivid colours.
The projector has been independently tested and certified with an IP5X dust resistance rating and delivers up to 30,000 hours of reliable operation without the need for expensive lamp or filter replacements. This industry-leading lifetime is achieved using Optoma’s DuraCore technology, with advanced laser diode cooling techniques and an innovative dust resistant design. This filter-free design prevents dust and dirt from affecting the system, ensuring optimal image quality with minimal maintenance.
It can be installed at 360° along its vertical axis, enabling projection onto floors and ceilings, as well as portrait mode and includes vertical and horizontal lens shift, plus centralised optics to make it easy to set up. The high quality 1.8x zoom lens enables flexible projector placement across a wide range of throw distances.
Connectivity is extensive with an HDBaseT port included as standard and complemented by two HDMI inputs on the rear and a further HDMI port at the front. Projector control can be via HDBaseT, RS-232C or a traditional wired network connection, and a motorised screen can be coupled to the 12V terminal.
DisplayMapper was used as the media server, to allow remote monitoring and adjustment, plus content updates.
