Fujifilm Projector Z6000 Launches

Tokyo, Japan—Fujifilm Corporation’s president, CEO and representative director, Teiichi Goto, announced the launch of the Fujifilm Projector Z6000. The new model joined the company’s line of Z series ultra-short-throw projectors when it was released in late July.

Moreover, the device is equipped with the industry’s only (as of July 2022) “folded two-axial rotatable lens.”

In recent years, applications for projectors have increasingly expanding into spatial design at commercial facilities; museums; as well as art galleries. Fujifilm entered the projector market in 2019 with the launch of its Z series projectors, which employ folded two-axial rotatable lenses.

What’s more, the Fujifilm Projector Z8000 (FP-Z8000) that was subsequently introduced in 2021 provides bright image projection and color reproduction. Users can also place the FP-Z8000 in inconspicuous places, drawing on the ability of the folded two-axial rotatable lens to project images toward various directions as well as the ability to throw massive images from a close-up distance.

Further, since the FP-Z8000 creates immersive spaces without blocking the viewers’ line of sight, its adoption in museums and immersive digital art exhibitions has spread.

Now, with the launch of the FP-Z6000, Fujifilm added a high-brightness Z series model. The company also aims to expand the series’ appeal by increasing the customers’ options.

In addition, model FP-Z6000 offers a bright 6000 lumens (lm) image projection capability. It also features a compact 18x20x6.4-inch housing and weighs approximately 38 pounds.

Notably, by rotating the folded two-axial rotatable lens, the projector can throw images at various directions. Users can tilt its lens 90º from the lens mount axis and rotate it 360º on the lens axis. Moreover, the ability to throw images in various directions allows users to project images not only onto walls and screens but also ceilings and floors.

Users can also create an immersive space by hiding the main unit and exposing only the lens section. What’s more, the projector’s ultra-short-throw lens has a TR value of 0.34. It also projects 100-inch images from a close-up distance of 28 inches. Consequently, the design reduces the dead space between the projector and the projection surface; this allows for maximum use of space.

Optical Specs

In addition, the use of a large-diameter aspherical lens element delivers a lens-shift function of up to 70% vertically and 35% horizontally. As a result, it is easier to shift the position of projected images across a wide range without changing the projector’s location or the lens’s direction.

Furthermore, its 1.1x optical zoom capability means the size of projected images is adjustable. Users can also combine the optical zoom capability with the projector’s lens-shift function to enable efficient image adjustments.

In addition, the FP-Z6000 adopts a two-group focusing mechanism; this permits the projector to independently adjust the focus of the central and peripheral parts of an image. Even when users shift the position of projected images with the lens-shift function, the two-group focusing mechanism allows the projector to adjust its focal placement and offer images focused from their center to periphery.

Finally, the projector’s compact design with a fold-away lens means the lens fits inside the body to form a cuboid shape, reducing strain during transportation.

Fujifilm notes it will continue to apply its proprietary optical technology to develop and supply projectors with minimal installation limitations. It will thereby cater to diverse user needs.
