Optoma ZU820T

Ultra bright 8,800-lumen professional laser projector

At 8800 lumens with 4K and HDR compatibility, the ZU820T features a dust-resistant IP5X certified optical engine for 24/7 operation capabilities, offering true maintenance-free projection for up to 30,000 hours of powerful performance in Eco mode.

Other features include motorized zoom and focus, full motorized lens shift and built-in dual 10W speakers.

High brightness, color precision and quiet operation, alongside a 1.6x zoom make this projector the ideal solution for a variety of end-user scenarios and professional environments, such as simulation, edge-blending and projection mapping, and immersive installations.

The added control flexibility of HDBaseT and LAN make this projector an affordable install-and-forget solution.

Key Features:
  • 8800-lumen DuraCore laser projector — ultra bright for immersive installations
  • Full motorized lens shift — ideal for a simple setup
  • Large zoom range  1.6x motorized zoom expands placement opportunities
  • 30,000-hour laser light source for virtually maintenance-free operation


  • DuraCore: Industry-leading long lifetime is achieved using Optoma’s DuraCore technology by implementing advanced laser diode cooling techniques and an innovative dust resistant design.
  • Full motorized lens shift: simplifies installation by providing a wider range of projector placement possibilities. This makes it easier to position the projector in your room and enables a wider range of screen size options.
  • Four corner correction: Adjust the keystone in both the vertical and horizontal plane. You can individually warp each corner of the image to create a perfectly square image, making it ideal for image stacking, uneven walls or where projector placement requires installation at an angle.
  • IP5X dust-resistant optical engine: Independently tested and certified to IEC standard 60529 with an IP5X dust resistance rating. Outstanding dust resistance combined with exceptional brightness ensures industry-leading durability — ideal for 24/7 maintenance-free operation in challenging environments.
  • HDBaseT™: Uncompromising, uncompressed Full HD video, audio, network and control commands are all delivered on a single CAT-type cable up to 100 meters/328 feet without signal loss, making installation hassle-free. HDBaseT™ simplifies cabling requirements and reduces installation complexity, saving time and reducing costs.
  • HDR compatible: Capable of receiving and displaying HDR meta data, Optoma HDR-compatible projectors allow you to see far more detail and texture. Objects look more solid and life-like, and the extra detail creates a greater sense of depth. It’s like looking through a window.
  • 360 projection: Images can be projected over a 360° range along the projector’s horizontal axis.
  • Portrait projection: Ideal for digital signage applications. You can rotate your projector 90 degrees to project a portrait image.

  • Integrated warping and edge blending processor: enables multiple projectors to be warped and blended without additional dedicated hardware, reducing the cost and complexity of installation. Warping and edge blending is configured using either the projector's on-screen display or with PC software, depending on the model.

    (Note: Compatible multi output graphics card with overlap function is required.)

  • Color Matching System (CMS): The full HSG color matching system enables hue, saturation and gain adjustments for each primary color to match user preferences. This creates seamless blends every time when combined with accurate measurements.

  • True AV mute: enables the light source of the projector to be instantly switched off and on at the press of a button. Unlike standard AV mute functionality, no light is emitted from the projector, giving 100% blackout on screen.
  • Full 3D: Optoma projectors can display true 3D content from almost any 3D source, including 3D-compatible graphics cards, 3D broadcasting, and the latest generation 3D media servers.
  • 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.
  • Direct power off: Power off your projector immediately or directly at the mains. This means you don’t have to wait for the projector to cool down before turning it off.
  • Constant power: Allows users to set the power levels to meet individual installation requirements. Power levels can be managed to obtain the brightest picture or longest light source life, or anywhere in-between.
  • Constant brightness: Advanced light sensing technology allows the setting of brightness levels that will remain unchanged over time — ideal for ensuring constant brightness for long running installations
  • Telnet: This model is able to receive commands via telnet allowing for easy installation with Telnet-compatible control systems.
  • Wide range of options to control and monitor the projector remotely:
    • RS232: Optoma projector’s come with an extensive set of RS232 commands, making it easy to manage using any control system.
    • AMX compatible: Dynamic discovery protocol is incorporated into the projector allowing for easy installation with AMX control systems.
    • Crestron RoomView: 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.
    • Extron IPLink compatible: Allows for easy installation with Extron control systems.
