The WU1500 features twin lamps, six LD lens options and up 12,000 lumens of brightness at the centre of the screen, making it the brightest projector in the entire ProScene product range. Optoma also says the new unit is capable of continuous 24/7 operation.
The WU1500 operates at a resolution of 1920×1200, offers HDBaseT connectivity via a CAT6 cable and can be operated in portrait mode. The unit also features a smattering of different blending and warping capabilities.
The new projector can be installed at any angle within a 360-degree range so that it can be used for floor and ceiling projection, for example. The unit’s twin lamps can be operated simultaneously, or, to minimise the need for lamp replacement; users can alternate between the individual lamps in ‘lamp relay’ setting.
Optoma’s WU1500 also features a mechanical shutter system for creating blackouts during stage shows, live events and music performances. The company say the new model is perfect for large-venue installations, including auditoriums, museums, digital signage, houses of worship, theatres and higher education.
