Spectacular image quality and brightness with low maintenance laser technology

The Optoma ZU1050 is a professional installation WUXGA projector designed for large meeting rooms, boardrooms, auditoriums, museums, houses of worship and broadcast environment installations that demand vibrant colors, consistent brightness and stunning quality images. The latest laser phosphor technology delivers a powerful 10,000 lumens of brightness and up to 20,000 hours of operation without lamp or filter replacements.

Every aspect of the Optoma ZU1050 was carefully designed and built to suit the requirements of even the most complex professional installation for the ultimate in professional image projection. It’s part of the DuraCore family, which features a dust-sealed and filter-free design with IP6X certification that prevents dust and dirt from affecting the optical system for optimal image quality with minimal maintenance.

Motorized lens shift, zoom and focus combined with 360° and portrait operation mode provide flexibility for simple, trouble-free installations. A variety of premium quality lenses ranging from 0.36:1 to 5.5:1 throw ratio ensures the Optoma ZU1050 can be used with a variety of projection distances. Robust input options include HDMI, DVI-D, VGA and component, HDBaseT and 3G-SDI for connectivity to a wide range of advanced devices.


DLP Technology®

DLP® (Digital Light Processing) is a proprietary technology from Texas Instruments™ that offers digital projection with higher contrast, faster response time, good pixel structure and virtually no color degradation.

Dynamic Black Technology

This feature gives more depth to your image by smoothly adjusting the lamp output to create a stunning high contrast ratio. Bright scenes appear crisp and clear, while dark scenes remain detailed with deep blacks and exceptional light and shade detail.


The Color Management System (CMS) displays accurate, life-like colors and gives you the flexibility to fine-tune the color settings to the Rec. 709 standard for optimal precision.

RS-232 Control

Take control of the projector using HEX or ASCII commands via RS-232 cable.

24/7 Operation

Optoma projectors are engineered to operate 24 hours a day in standard orientation and perfect for applications that require prolonged periods of use (subject to 24-hour terms and conditions).

Large Zoom Range

Interchangeable lens with a large zoom range can enable various placement possibilities, especially in space constrained environments.

Full Lens Shift

Optoma projectors with full lens shift provide off-axis vertical and horizontal adjustments for complete installation flexibility without image distortion or pixelation.

Wired Remote

The wired remote connection allows all aspects of the projector to be individually controlled without requiring a line-of-sight to the projector; invaluable when using multiple units during live events.

Lan control

Using the compatible RoomView® software you can power on/off, monitor, manage and control up to 250 projectors at the same time from any computer.

Image Stacking

Image stacking enables flexible installations for greater redundancy or double the image brightness without significantly increasing the installation cost. An image is displayable without interruption while swapping lamps or servicing one of the projectors or any brightness is achievable using geometry adjustment. Alternatively, images can be realigned to be perfectly square if the alignment is beyond the lens shift range.


Simplify installations by transmitting uncompressed video/audio and control commands using standard shielded CAT6 cabling up to 328 feet (100m).
