Fujifilm India Debuts in Projector market with Z5000- World’s First Folded Two-Axial Rotatable Lens

News Release

January 23, 2020

  • Enables omnidirectional image projection without moving the main projector unit by leveraging Fujifilm's cutting-edge optical technology
  • Reduces distortion and aberration edge-to-edge for stable projection of bright and vivid images
  • Ideal for installations in compact areas and can project powerful images on a massive 100-inch screen from a close-up distance of 75cm

 

New Delhi: Fujifilm India Private Limited, a pioneer in imaging technologies, today announced its debut in projector industry with the launch of its Fujifilm Projector Z5000 - an ultra-short throw projector equipped with the world's first* “folded two-axial rotatable lens” to enable omnidirectional image projection without moving the main projector unit. FP-Z5000 - makes the impossible possible with world’s first six direction projection with a total of 22 pattern variations. The lens can face up, down, front, rear, left and right to project images in various directions without having to move the main unit.

The Projector is developed with Fujifilm’s cutting-edge optical technology, nurtured through the development of FUJINON lens. The unit projects images not only on a wall or screen but also on the ceiling and floor, and can easily switch between vertical and horizontal display. The Ultra Short Throw, with wide lens shift and rotatable lens makes it a best fit for places where a conventional projector could not be placed due to severe space constraints, and throw powerful images in directions that other projectors cannot handle.

An ideal choice for large-scale digital signage at retail stores or spatial design projection at art galleries and museums, where installation space is limited, or for image projection onto ceilings or floor to make effective use of available space. The use of Fujifilm’s ultra-short throw lens makes it even possible to project images on a 100-inch screen from the close-up distance of just 75cm. By tapping into its advanced optical design technology, accumulated through the development of these types of optical devices, Fujifilm has developed an innovative projector that meets the current market needs.

Speaking about the launch, Mr. Haruto Iwata, Managing Director, Fujifilm India Pvt Ltd. said, “FP-Z5000 marks our entry into projector market. We are committed towards bringing the best of global technology to the country. Its omnidirectional image projection and ultra-short throw lens makes it an ideal choice for anyone looking for a projector solution. As an imaging solution company, we are excited to expand our businesses and enter the projector market. Being one of the leading player in medical imaging and camera industry, with this launch we want to revolutionise the projector industry in India and across the globe.”

Elaborating about the product, Hiroki Yokomizo, Marketing Advisor Electronic Imaging and Optical Devices, said, “The launch of Z5000 projector with World’s First Two-Axial Rotatable Lens sets a new benchmark of innovation in venue projection market. We look forward to delivering a truly immersive experience to our consumers and help them witness the high performance and Fujifilm's cutting-edge optical technology. The Z5000 is capable of projecting powerful images on a massive 100-inch screen from a close-up distance of 75cm. With the launch of this projector, we want users to expand their existing boundaries of visual experiences.”

FUJINON lenses are used in some of the most advanced technology currently in the market including 4K/8K compatible broadcast lenses, high-performance cine lenses and interchangeable lenses for mirrorless digital cameras. The class-leading Lens Shift function of up to 82% vertically and 35% horizontally makes it easy to adjust the position of projected images across a wide range. The FP-Z5000 uses large-diameter spherical and aspherical lens elements, based on Fujifilm's advanced know-how in optical design, and a laser light source with outstanding durability. This reduces distortion and aberration edge-to-edge for stable projection of bright and vivid images.

Fujifilm has been working on research and development, manufacturing and marketing of industrial optical devices including optical components of office equipment and projectors, in addition to a wide range of broadcast lenses and cine lenses. Fujifilm will strive to achieve further business growth by continuing to develop innovative products that meet diverse market needs.

Features:

1.Equipped with the folded two-axial rotatable lens

  • The FP-Z5000 features a folded two-axial rotatable lens, developed with cutting-edge optical technology nurtured through the development of FUJINON lens, adding a capability of directing the lens up, down, front, rear, left and right to project images in various directions without having to move the main unit. This means it can project images not only on a wall or screen but also on the ceiling and floor.
  • You can switch the orientation of projected images between portrait and landscape by simply rotating the lens, enabling powerful “Portrait Projection.”

2.Projecting images on a 100-inch screen from the close-up distance of just 75cm

  • The use of an ultra-short throw lens makes it possible to project images on a massive 100-inch screen from a close-up distance of just 75cm. This significantly reduces the amount of space required between the projector unit and the screen, enabling maximum spatial use

3.Lens Shift function of up to 82% vertically and 35% horizontally

  • The FP-Z5000 takes advantage of a large image circle of its large-diameter lens to offer the Lens Shift function of up to 82% vertically and 35% horizontally, making it possible to adjust the position of projected images across a wide range without having to move the projector's main unit or change the lens's direction.

4.Reducing distortion and aberration edge-to-edge for stable projection of bright and vivid images

  • The FP-Z5000 uses large-diameter spherical and aspherical lens elements, based on Fujifilm's advanced know-how in optical design, to minimize image distortion typically seen at edges in short-throw lenses as well as aberration that often arises while shifting the lens. It achieves stunning image projection.
  • T he use of a highly-durable laser light source enables stable image projection at high luminosity of 5000lm and reduces workload and costs associated with maintenance.

5.Excellent ease of use with the smallest body in its class

  • The FP-Z5000 supports both vertical*4 and horizontal positioning, allowing you to choose how it should be installed according to users' environment.
  • The projector comes in a compact body measuring just 108mm thick, the thinnest in its class**. Its design approach allows the lens and the main projector unit to fold into a box shape for added portability.
  • It has beautifully rounded corners for a stylish appearance, achieved in Fujifilm's pursuit for design sophistication.
  • *4The vertical installation requires the use of a stand (included) to prevent the projector from tipping over.
