When you have a projector mounted on your ceiling, this can lead to the need of having a whole bunch of cables up there as well. You have the cable for the image, the one for sound, then you have network and control. This can lead to having a bunch of wired up by your projector. The Optoma ZU506T-W solves this with HDBaseT.
HDbaseT allows you to use 1 cable to deliver your image, sound, and control to the ZU506T-W projector. All delivered over 1 network cable. Optoma does offer an optional HDBastT transmitter to use for this solution. Getting the projector and the transmitter from Optoma will guarantee everything works like a top.
Connecting to the ZU506T-W using HDBaseT will allow you to go farther than with traditional cables. You can have distances of up to 300 feet using HDbaseT. That’s much much farther than you could get with an HDMI or VGA cable. This is a great feature of the house of worship or large conference rooms that need to run cabling some distance.
