Optoma today at DSE 2018 debuted the ZH420UST 1080p HD laser projector — an ultra short throw projector with built-in edge blending and warping. They are aiming it at digital signage applications where you need projection in a large format. And since it’s laser, it can be mounted in any configuration.
The ZH420UST is a single-chip DLP projector that’s spec’d at 4,000 ANSI lumens, a 100,000:1 contrast and 0.25:1 throw ratio so it can project a 100-inch image from just 13 inches away. Inputs include HDBaseT and two HDMI. It’s available in two colors — ZH420UST-B (black) and ZH420UST-W (white) and will list for $2,799.
