The Optoma ProScene WU1500 is a fully-featured installation projector, built for demanding professional applications where image quality, performance and reliability are paramount. Native WUXGA resolution, 12,000 lumens brightness and 5000:1 contrast deliver vivid, crystal-clear images, while dual lamps with lamp relay and 24/7 operation provide ultimate reliability, ensuring that this is a projector in which you can have complete confidence.
The dust-sealed, filter-free design prevents dust and dirt from affecting the optical system, ensuring optimal image quality with minimal maintenance requirements. Motorised lens shift, zoom and focus combined with 360° operation and interchangeable colour wheels provide total flexibility for simple, trouble-free installation. A choice of six premium-quality lenses, from wide focus through to extra-long zoom means that the WU1500 can be adapted to cover almost any projection distance.
An array of advanced connectivity options are provided as standard, including HDMI, DVI-D, 5 BNC, HDBaseT and 3G-SDI. Every aspect of the WU1500 has been carefully designed and built to suit the requirements of the professional installer – from the dependable lens mounting system, through to the backlit remote control keypad and operation panel. The Optoma ProScene WU1500 represents the ultimate in professional image projection.
Superb image quality is at the heart of every ProScene product. At every step, commencing with the incredibly reliable, high resolution WUXGA DLP® chip, where the image is initially created via the dual Philips UHP projection lamps, through to the precision optics which focus the image on the screen, accuracy and integrity of the image are paramount.
All Optoma ProScene projectors use 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 colour accuracy and natural, real-world colour reproduction. For demanding professional applications, the proven reliability of DLP® technology makes it the obvious choice.
Better than Full HD resolution
When detail really matters, WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) offers 15% more image area than 1080p and 60% more than SXGA+. This enables unscaled Full HD video and extra detail. Time code information can be displayed on-screen at the same time, perfect for soundtrack recording and video editing editing where precise timing can be critical.
The dual Philips 465W UHP lamps provide the highest possible luminance, the essential prerequisite of all high-performance projectors. These lamps stay brighter for longer, provide a long service life and a reduced loss of luminous flux throughout that life. In addition, the lamp drivers are specifically tuned for the lamps, ensuring optimum operating conditions and greater stability for any situation.
Lamp pulsing technology
Advanced lamp-pulsing technologies enable colour performance to be fine-tuned directly from the lamp. This unprecedented control helps to create vibrant, perfectly saturated colours across the whole light spectrum. The result is stunningly accurate, naturallooking images.
The Optoma ProScene WU1500 is designed for continuous 24/7 operation. Only the most reliable, industry proven components are used to ensure superior reliability. This hard-earned “capability” has been meticulously developed over a decade of designing and supporting millions of projectors the world over. The dust-sealed, filter-free design prevents dust and dirt from affecting the system – ensuring optimal image quality with minimal maintenance. ProScene customers can therefore be confident that, as one of the most reliable projector brands in the industry today, Optoma has a reputation for service excellence that is well deserved.
Dual lamps enable a level of reliability simply unavailable with a single-lamp projector. Both lamps can be used together to achieve maximum brightness, whilst still providing redundancy should one of them fail. Alternatively, a single lamp can be used in Relay Mode to deliver the full lifetime of each individual lamp, hence minimising service intervals.
High quality glass optical elements maintain optimum sharpness and focus uniformity over the entire image. The ProScene insistence on uncompromising optical quality ensures extremely low colour flare and chromatic aberration resulting in crystal clear, high contrast images.
Select from a range of six premium-quality lenses, including short throw, wide zoom and long throw options. All have motorised shift, zoom and focus mechanisms, for easy and accurate adjustment after initial installation.
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.
Total cost of ownership
For demanding applications, the total cost of ownership of a projector is not just in the purchase price, but also 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 WU1500 image colour quality will remain as good as the day you bought it that Optoma will guarantee it for five years.
To meet the challenges of Pro AV installations, the WU1500 offers six lens options, each with motorised zoom and focus, to accurately deliver the required image size.
Motorised lens shift makes it easy to position the image exactly where you want it, while a choice of two different colour wheels allows the right balance of colour and brightness for any application.
All of the six optional lenses offer easy adjustment via the motorised lens shift, zoom and focus.

360° and portrait projection capability
Images can be projected over a full 360° range along the horizontal axis, including reproduction onto a ceiling or floor. The projector can also be placed in ‘portrait mode’ for applications such as digital signage and multi-projector displays.
HDBaseT enables transmission of uncompressed high definition video, audio, network and control signals over a single Category 6 twisted-pair cable. This streamlines installation and reduces labour, as well as allowing greater distances between the image source and the projector.
For situations where only absolute darkness is good enough, the WU1500 has a mechanical shutter to provide total blackout. This makes it perfect for live events, such as scene changes during theatre performances.
Open: Normal image
No two projectors are completely identical. When performing edge-blend projects using multiple projectors, it can be difficult to achieve good results if the images do not match. The WU1500 incorporates the following features to ensure high quality and consistent results:
The WU1500 has a full 3-axis colour matching system, which, when combined with accurate measurements, can create seamless blends every time.
To correctly match multiple units, the WU1500 has ten lamp power steps between 80% and 100% of full brightness. This helps to achieve balanced brightness levels between adjacent projectors.
Interchangeable colour wheels
Two colour wheel options ensure the performance characteristics of the WU1500 can be tailored to match the application. The standard colour wheel maximises brightness, whilst ensuring good colour reproduction. Alternatively, the ‘rich colour’ wheel trades some brightness for exceptional colour performance and accuracy. The colour wheels are interchangeable modules, and can be fitted or exchanged on-site, without removing the projector cover.
Rich Colour (optional)
The WU1500 features a Kensington lock slot, together with the ability to set a PIN code. This improves security and helps to deter projector theft.
Custom ID colours
The WU1500 is available in both black and white as standard. However, if your project calls for a higher level of customisation, the WU1500 is available in any colour from the RAL colour space.
Please contact your local sales representative for more information.
System Integration and Control
Multiple WU1500 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.
