Released Eleven Months Ago

This data projector has been on the market since June 2016.

The DU8090Z does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for the last year.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesses of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to this data projector range from 450 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 5,000 ANSI lumens. The Vivitek DU8090Z has one of the brighter projector brightnesses (8,000 ANSI lumens) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-RZ970 (£14,732.40) (9,400 ANSI lumens).

WUXGA (1920x1200) Resolution

The highest resolution of the DU8090Z is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all new 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of multimedia projector.

We think this 10000:1 contrast ratio projector looks expensive compared to other recently released comparable spec multimedia projectors. We checked 30 recently released comparable spec multimedia projectors and they range in price from £238 to £14,733.


Supports Full HD

The DU8090Z supports full HD. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to this projector do not support full HD.

Other projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the Panasonic PT-RZ970 (£14,732.40).

The DU8090Z is 3D-ready, as are most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for the last year.
