DuraCore laser
duracorelaser.jpgIndustry leading lifetime is achieved using Optoma’s new DuraCore technology, implementing advanced laser diode cooling techniques and an innovative dust resistant design. 30,000 hours provides a staggering 20 years of normal use*1 or 3.4 years if run continuously 24/7.Remarkably, even after 5,000 hours the ZH510T brightness shows virtually no change, which in our experience is unique in the projector industry for this class of projector.
*1 6 hours per day, 250 days per year

Dust resistant optical engine
ip5x.jpgThe ZH510T has been independently tested and certified with an IP5X dust resistance rating. Outstanding resistance to dust in combination with exceptional brightness ensures industry leading durability; paramount for 24/7 maintenance free operation in challenging environments; the dust resistance was tested by an independent laboratory in accordance with IEC standard 60529 and was certified with an IP5X rating. The dust resistant filter-free design prevents dust and dirt from affecting the system, ensuring optimal image quality with minimal maintenance.

Industry leading colour performance
rec709.pngThe ZH510T boasts a wide colour gamut and is designed to provide the best colour performance to match any application or environment. Our advanced colour technology, multiple settings and features enable users to enjoy long-lasting, reliable and precise colour – from vibrant, punchy presentations to lifelike images.

24/7 Operation247operation.png
All ProScene projectors are designed for continuous 24/7 operation. Only industry proven components are used to ensure superior reliability.

Full HD
Full HD (1920 x 1080) has more than twice the resolution of HD Ready (1280 x 720). ZH510T is compatible with HDTV broadcasts and high–definition media to project impressive full 1080p images and video in their original digital brilliance.

Optoma laser projectors have adopted DLP® micro-mirror technology which provides highly efficient bright images with high contrast, maintaining precise colour accuracy and natural real-world colour reproduction.

Precision optics
High quality optical elements maintain optimum sharpness and focus uniformity over the entire image. Uncompromising optical quality delivers extremely low colour flare and chromatic aberration resulting in a crystal clear, high contrast image.

Total cost of ownership
For demanding applications the total cost of ownership of a projector is not in the purchase cost but in expensive maintenance and service. ProScene projectors require very little maintenance; have no user serviceable parts inside and no filters that require periodic replacement. The result is low cost, predictable service cycles, enabling planned down time to be minimised.

We are so confident that the ZH510T image colour quality will remain as good as the day you bought it that Optoma will guarantee this projector for five years.

Hidden compartment
Uniquely, this model features a 3rd HDMI input in a compartment within the projector, providing an ideal solution for securely using your Optoma HD Cast Pro, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire or similar HDMI stick to add smart wireless streaming on your projector . Conveniently this HDMI input supports MHL, meaning that for compatible MHL devices a power connection is not required. For devices that do not support MHL there is a USB power connector inside the compartment.

360° and portrait projection capability
Images can be projected over a full 360° range along the vertical axis, including reproduction on a ceiling or floor. The projector can also be placed in portrait mode for applications such as digital signage or for tall thin projection areas.

Quick start-up and shutdown
The ZH510T features quick start-up and shutdown and reaches full brightness quickly. To maximise energy saving it also includes a ‘pause projection’ feature where the light source can be completely shut off. Unlike conventional lamp based projectors, the laser- light source requires minimal cool-down time.

Corner adjustment
By individually adjusting each corner of the image, it eliminates any crooked or distorted images in off-angle or restricted space installations for that perfect picture.


Simplify installation with PureShift, which provides a wide range of projector placement possibilities. Vertical lens shift : +25% Horizontal lens shift : -10% ~ +10%


Large zoom range
A large zoom range enables multiple placement possibilities at a variety of distances from the projection screen. An advantage to this is that expensive interchangeable lens projectors can be substituted with a more cost effective solution whilst still retaining a diverse choice of positioning options.

Uncompromising, uncompressed Full HD video, audio, hdbaset.pngnetworkand control commands all delivered on a single CAT- type cable capable up to 100 meters/328 feet without signal loss makes installation hassle-free. HDBaseT™ simplifies cabling requirements and reduces installation complexity saving both time and reducing costs.
DLP® technology

DLP® technology from Texas Instruments® is widely recognised and acclaimed for its unmatched reliability and long lasting image performance. When combined with high brightness and native contrast ratios, it becomes the obvious choice for demanding applications. Independent testing has proven DLP® to be the most reliable of projector technologies. Whilst other technologies may show image quality decline after only a few thousand hours, DLP® technology can remain unchanged over hundreds of thousands of hours. Images remain accurate, and colours suffer virtually no degradation over time.

Colour matching
This projector has a colour matching system, which combined with accurate measurements can create seamless blends every time.wu1500-colourmatching.jpg

Projector security

The ZH510T features both a Kensington lock and security bar for enhanced theft prevention.

Custom ID colours

If your project calls for a higher level of customisation, the ZH510T is available in any colour from the RAL colour space system.customid_zu510t.jpg

Please contact your local sales representative for more information.

System integration control

Multiple ZH510T’s can be monitored over LAN and also provide the user with an email message alert in case an error occurs or a light source fails or needs to be replaced, using Crestron RoomView. While the web browser interface and full support for Extron’s IP Link, AMX dynamic device discovery and PJ-Link protocols, allow almost all aspects of the ZH510T to be controlled across a network, keeping you in control, wherever you are.

Project Green
We know that improving our products is the best way to reduce our impact on the environment. That's why at Optoma we design our products to have a long usable life, use fewer materials, ship with the minimum packaging and be free of all possible toxic substances. Naturally, energy efficiency and being recyclable are built in at the design stage. With each new product, we strive towards minimising our environmental impact.

Eco friendly and highly efficient

Cut up to 30% from your energy bills using 24-hour automated power scheduling to ensure that projectors power off when not in use.

Direct power on

The projector will start up instantly when power is supplied to the unit. This eliminates the need to manually turn on the projector via the remote control or the keypad, ideal for use in rooms with a “master” power switch.

Auto power off

If after a pre-determined time the projector does not receive a signal, it will turn itself off automatically, conserving power and extending the life of the light source.

Eco standby mode

Reduces energy consumption to less than 0.5W when the projector is not in use.
