Compact high brightness laser projector

The ZX300 is a compact XGA DuraCore IP6X laser projector. Designed for maintenance-free continuous operation, it can be installed in virtually any orientation. Its small and lightweight footprint combined with 360-degree and portrait projection enable easy installation.
