The Optoma UHZ65 Theo model is a modified version of the UHZ65. There is an owner's thread on AVS forum for the Theo. Just another projector for your consideration.

Another 4K DLP release without powered lens controls...:(
Does anyone know of an upcoming FP to include powered lens controls/lens memory?

The Optoma 4K500 is a 4K DLP projector with HDR and has a motorized lens.

It isn't on my list since it uses a bulb...

But only shows 90% of REC 709 on the color chart they provide.
Yes. Both are bad numbers.

Waiting for RGB lasers...

The light path is not sealed? So the model is prone to white clouds when projecting black^^
They recommend cleaning the external filter every 3 months (there is a graphic in the manual showing removing the side vent cover, then vacuuming the filter)

Filter Reminder
Choose this function to show or hide the warning message when the changing filter message is displayed. The
available options include Off, 300hr, 500hr, 800hr, and 1000hr.

Note: Dust filters are only required/supplied in the selected regions with excessive dust.

So I would assume that the light path is sealed, and the dust filter is only there to keep the internals from clogging up with dust that the fan would draw in.

Sadly, the Optoma 4K500 is not a HT projector.
I'm waiting for something similar to what JVC and Sony have as standard on most models.
How hard can it be? Our Sharp Z30K DLP has powered lens controls and lens memory and it's circa 2012...:confused:

I'm close to buying a UHZ65. But am still spec'ing other hardware & furniture for a new dedicated H/T room. So, I certainly can delay a UHZ65 purchase; especially if the ZK507 is considered a replacement &/or an upgrade to the UHZ65.

In fact, because the UHZ65 has been available since October, 2017, before buying one, I thought I had better check for a potential heir apparent waiting in the wings. Is the ZK507 or another Optoma U.S. Model pending release, to supersede, or be an upgrade to the UHZ65?

Have you checked out the BENQ 9060? LED’s, sharpest lens currently, 98% extended color. Personally I chose the BENQ over the UHZ65 b/c of zero rainbows.
Really love it.

I'm a big Benq fan. Back in the day, our first front projector was a Benq PE8720. Tack sharp. Beautiful image.
I would jump on the Benq 9060, except for the lack of lens memory.:(
I even emailed Benq CS to ask if they had any plans to include powered lens controls in a future model?:confused:
Sadly, no response...

They will both coexist. The ZK507 is a ProScene product meant for B2B/ProAV applications while the UHZ65 is a home cinema product.
