①Ultra-short throw projector “FUJIFILM PROJECTOR Z8000” 【Best of the Best Award】

The FUJIFILM PROJECTOR Z8000 (FP-Z8000) is a high-brightness model in the Z series of ultra-short throw projectors equipped with the world’s first folded two-axial rotatable lens. It is capable of projecting images in 8000 lumens (lm) of brightness despite its class-leading compact and lightweight design*1. The product can project images at various directions without having to move the main unit and also throw large images from a close-up distance. These features address the need for producing spatial design that makes effective use of limited space.

The FP-Z8000 has a stylish design with a fold-away lens, and supports vertical or horizontal positioning to provide installation options according to usage conditions. The product is available in two color variations, black and white.
