The What Else: Featuring a respective 4,500 and 4,000 lumens of brightness and a 300,000:1 contrast ratio, along with HDR10 and HLG compatibility, the Optoma ZW403 and ZH403 produce bright and sharp images with color precision and strong contrast. With a long-lasting, DuraCore laser light source, these projectors enable up to 30,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operation in Eco mode.
The ZW403 and ZH403 are also equipped with several built-in features, including keystone and four-corner correction, 1.3x optical zoom, and 24/7 and 360-degree and portrait mode operation for flexible installation.
