Optoma has delivered a very nice projector with the ZU506T-W. It has the size of a meeting room projector and the performance of an installation projector. With a street price of $2799, this will be an outstanding performer for your office, house of worship or education application. Offering 30,000 hours of life from its laser light source and a 3-year warranty with Optoma replacement. That is pretty hard to beat. Remember for most applications, this projector will last us over 10 years. Chances are you will need to upgrade because HDMI has gone the way of the Dodo, not because the Laser has gone out.
Great images for your conference room or classroom.
I must believe that there are a lot of integrators out there looking for their go-to projector to support all the upgrades that come their way. Millions of projectors that have been sold are sitting in conference rooms and dimly waiting to be upgraded. The 1.6x lens, lens shift, and fantastic connectivity make the ZU506T-W positioned as the one that can upgrade just about any meeting room and conference room installation. A laser phosphor light source is a great reason to upgrade your projector. It will give you years of performance.
The ZU506T-W has every input you could want. It has VGA, S-Video, and 2 HDMI inputs. Which is enough for most. Usually, you have 1 maybe 2 connections to a projector. This makes this Optoma a real contender for a lot of applications. Including 1 cable installs using HDBaseT. One network cable and power, and you are done. That is a clean and simple installation.
The Optoma ZU506T-W will light up a classroom and display content clear and bright.
The Optoma ZU506T-W is a professional Installation projector, it has the connectivity for it and the optics. It also supports a few different color modes as we discussed. I believe if you keep the ZU506T-W on sRGB or Cinema you will be very happy with the performance. You could step it up to Presentation if you want some extra brightness. I was hoping for better color performance, but at the end of the day. It’s a business projector. It will dazzle your classroom and put a great image on the wall in your conference room.
