4K / HDR Compatible
The 506 series is the world’s 1st* projector capable to accept native 4K signals and compatible with HDR10.

High dynamic range (HDR) technology improves contrast ratio, brightness, and colour depth on the display, delivers brighter whites and deeper black levels. It enhances the details and depth of field, making the images clearer and more realistic.

Robust & Reliable Optoma DURACORE
This projector is designed with Optoma’s Airtight Optical Engine with IP6X certification. The airtight enclosure resists dust particles and ensures a long lasting, reliable and maintenance free experience, and ultimate brightness consistency and reliability. The Mercury free laser light source is rated for up to 30,000 hours** enabling a low total cost of ownership.

Amazing Colour
This project achieves 99% Rec. 709 coverage to render lifelike images that will wow your audience.

1.6x 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.

Vertical Lens Shift
Simplify installation with lens shift, which provides a wide range of projector placement possibilities.

4 – 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.

Colour Matching Mode
The colour matching system, combines accurate measurements across multiple projectors creates seamless blends every time.

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

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. This projector can also be placed in portrait mode for applications such as digital signage or for tall thin projection areas.

Network control protocols
Versatile System Integration Control Protocols Crestron RoomView, Extron’s IP Link, AMX dynamic device discovery, PJ-Link, Telnet and HTTP protocols are fully supported, allowing the series to be controlled across a network, keeping you in control, wherever you are.

AV Mute
In situations where only absolute darkness is required, this projector can provide a total blackout that functions like mechanical shutter. The change between normal projection to a total black image and vice versa is instantaneous.

Low Noise: Quieter than a Whisper
Only 31dB in ECO mode.

Quick start-up and shutdown
This projector 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.
