The ZW400UST is powered by long-lasting, low maintenance DuraCore laser light source. The lamp-less and filter-free design vastly reduces running costs for a low total cost of ownership.

Weighing only 5.6kg, this projector can be mounted just centimetres away from a wall or surface and can project an image size of over 100 inches (254cm).

Supporting 24/7 operation and versatile orientation, the ZW400UST is a flexible, powerful and bright ultra short throw projector which makes for a superb signage solution where space or accessibility can be limited, such as shop windows or retail displays.


Industry leading lifetime is achieved using Optoma’s DuraCore technology. Implementing advanced laser diode cooling techniques and an innovative dust resistant design. 20,000 hours provides a staggering 13 years of normal use*1 or 2.2 years if run continuously 24/7.

*16 hours per day, 250 days per year

Museums, exhibitions and visitor centres

Interactive exhibits are a guaranteed way to capture interest at visitor centres. With stunning visuals now a frequent requirement for these types of installation, the ZW400UST high resolution makes it perfect for the task. With its ability to perform rear and downward projection, and also to operate in ‘portrait’ mode, the ZW400UST is perfect for large, touch-sensitive displays, offering a fully interactive experience to visitors.

Retail displays and digital signage

The ultra-high 100,000:1 contrast ratio ensures no detail is lost in the image which is key for corporate presentations, retail signage and projection mapping where every detail matters. The 4000-lumen light source delivers exceptionally consistent brightness, rendering striking & vibrant images, even in high levels of ambient light. Large images with a diagonal measurement of 100” can be generated from a throw distance of just 31cm.


The DuraCore laser light engine replaces the traditional lamp based projector removing the need for replacement lamps, maintaining low running costs. Unlike lamp based projectors, the DuraCore laser supports instant power on/off. The efficiency of the laser helps the projector run more quietly with lower energy consumption and heat dissipation.

Control Rooms

High resolution and high contrast make the ZW400UST suitable for installation in control rooms, where fine lines and small text must be clearly visible. In addition, the long lifespan of the DuraCore laser light source and DLP panel makes the projector capable of 24/7 operation, and therefore especially suited to ‘always on’ environments.


As industrial-grade simulators for aircraft, track cars and commercial vehicles become increasingly prevalent, the demand for ultra-high resolution projectors capable of maintaining high consistent brightness levels increases. Simulators can now be implemented using fewer projectors, reducing overall complexity in terms of hardware. Thanks to the native WXGA resolution, even complex, computer-generated images can be displayed with remarkable clarity.

Engineering and Design

CAD environments, architecture and 3D modelling all require projected images with absolute clarity and accuracy. The projector is fully 3D compatible, and can be used in conjunction with active shutter glasses to generate convincing 3D visuals.

Ultra short throw lens

High quality UST lens delivers large images from a short projection distance. Presenter dazzle and image shadows are avoided.

Exemplary service

A huge range of service centres across Europe and extensive warranty and servicing packages.

Bright, detailed rich in colour images

4000 lumens, WXGA, 100,000:1 contrast ratio. Wide coverage of Rec. 709 color gamut.

Dual HDMI inputs

Project crystal-clear images using either of the twin HDMI inputs. HDMI V1.4a is supported, including MHL on one of the inputs. Computer and HD video sources are supported, while separate audio cables are no longer required.

Image quality

Image quality is of paramount importance for every installation product in the ProScene range. The ZW400UST delivers deep rich and colorful images whilst maintaining an exceptional high level of consistent brightness that will captivate and engage any audience.

ProScene uses DLP® technology for its image quality and unmatched reliability. The reflective nature of DLP® micro-mirror technology provides highly efficient bright images with great contrast whilst maintaining precise color accuracy and natural, real-world color reproduction. For demanding professional applications, the proven reliability of DLP® technology makes it the obvious choice.

Projector security

The ZW400UST features a Kensington Lock slot to deter theft, while password protection prevents unauthorised use.

Dust resistant optical engine

The ZW400UST 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.

Perfect projection

Misaligned images can be quickly adjusted with vertical keystone correction.

Audio capabilities

The powerful built in 10W loudspeaker can be used in conjunction with a microphone, to capture the attention of the audience. Expensive additional audio hardware and cabling can therefore be eliminated in smaller meeting rooms.

For larger installations, audio inputs from a computer or video source can also be handled, allowing the ZW400UST projector to act as an audio switcher and volume controller, alongside an external audio amplifier and speakers.

Enlarge your images

The digital zoom feature can be used to increase the magnification of a particular area, allowing explanation of the projected image in more detail.

Versatile Installation

Images can be projected in ‘portrait mode’, where the projector is operated on its side, to produce a tall, thin image. This is perfect for digital signage applications, particularly in retail premises.

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.

Enhanced colour gamut

The ZW400UST produces superb color accuracy and powerful color performance because of the wide coverage of Rec. 709 color gamut typically associated with DLP® technology.

System integration and control

Multiple ZW400UST projectors can be monitored over the LAN and can also send an email alert via Crestron RoomView in the event of an error or a lamp failure. Projector status can be monitored via a web browser, while Extron IP Link, AMX Device Discovery and PJ-Link protocols offer remote management of most functions across a network, keeping you in control wherever you are.
