The Optoma ProScene ZU660 has advanced networking features. The first of these features is HDBaseT, which allows for simplified installations using a single CAT6 cable for running audio, video, and control signals over long distances via an Ethernet port on the back of the projector. In the case of the ZU660, you can use a cable up to 328 feet long. This aids in placement flexibility, as the audio/video source does not need to be nearby the projector, which will likely be ceiling mounted and difficult to access directly. That audio/video source can be safely tucked in a control room, over 300 feet away from the projector itself. Cool.
The ZU660, as mentioned on the previous page, is Crestron RoomView ready. For those of you unfamiliar, Crestron RoomView is an AV asset management software for keeping track of all the projectors in your network. When connected to each projector, you will be able to see the power status, light engine life, alerts and other statistics. This is a command and control software that’s been around for quite some time.
Next up is our discussion of the Optoma ProScene ZU660’s hardware, written by Chris Kahl. After those next two pages, we will go into the projector’s picture quality for video and presentations. Then, we’ll talk about how the projector performed and sum it all up for you on the last page. See you at the Hardware Tour!
