FUJIFILM launches FP-Z8000 projector
FUJIFILM has launched the latest in its lineupof the Z Series of ultra-short throw projectors.
The new FP-Z8000 is equipped with the world’s first folded two-axial rotatable lens. It is a high-brightness projector capable of projecting images in 8000 lumens (lm) of brightness even when used for digital signage in brightly-lit commercial facilities.
Its class-leading compact and lightweight design accommodates installation in a wide variety of conditions. Images can be projected at various directions without having to move the main unit. Its ability to throw large images from a close-up distance enables spatial presentation that makes effective use of limited space.
Fujifilm entered into the projector market in 2019 with the launch of the ultra-short throw FUJIFILM PROJECTOR Z5000 (FP-Z5000), equipped with a “folded two-axial rotatable lens” to project images to various directions without having to move the main unit. Last July, the company developed the FP-Z8000, which inherits main features of the FP-Z5000 but delivers images in 8000lm of brightness.
The optimum layout of components inside the main body enables a class-leading compact (W460mm x D510mm x H162.5mm) and lightweight (weighing approximately 18.4kg) design. It can be positioned vertically or horizontally to enable spatial presentation that makes effective use of otherwise wasted space.
The projector’s ultra-short throw lens projects dynamic 100-inch images from a close-up distance of 72cm.
The projector supports zero-offset projection, eliminating the offset that occurs in conventional mirror-system ultra-short throw projectors to allow maximum use of projection surfaces in spatial presentation.
The projector offers interfaces including HDMI that supports 4K signal input as well as DisplayPortTM and 3G-SDI to accommodate the development of versatile systems.
FUJIFILM is tapping into its advanced optical technology to develop and supply projectors with minimal installation limitations, thereby contributing to the creation of versatile spatial presentations at commercial facilities, art galleries and museums.
