Fujifilm releases 8000 lumen compact ultra-short throw FP-Z8000 projector


Global imaging, chemical, mechanical and electronics firm, Fujifilm, has announced its brand new FP-Z8000 projector which boasts large images at close range, with 8000 lumens of brightness, and the world’s first folded two-axial rotatable lens - all in a compact and lightweight design.

Gone are the days when projectors were only used in boardrooms and classrooms. Projectors now have a strong use case in offices, presentations in showrooms or museums and art galleries, digital signage in commercial facilities, and many more. This has increased the need to incorporate projectors in limited space, and better utilise ceilings and floors for spatial presentations.

Close-up projectors emerged to provide support for throwing images at a short distance, however, Fujifilm takes this to the next level with its innovative and leading-edge folded two-axial rotatable lens. What this means in practice is it can be installed in a wide variety of conditions, and images can be projected in various directions without needing to move the main unit. It truly makes effective use of limited space. It can display 100” images from a distance of 72cm.

Fujifilm builds on a long history of experience in imaging, along with chemical, electrical, and optical device manufacture, but only entered the projector market in 2019. It launched the FP-Z5000 projector which introduced the folded two-axial rotatable lens to the world for the first time. The FP-Z8000 now takes this further with a staggering 8000 lumens of brightness.

For comparison, vehicle headlights with 8000 lumens can illuminate up to 700 metres with a warm light.

This means the projector brings crisp, sharp output no matter how dim or bright your area. It can throw clearly visible images even in bright locations, making it a tremendous choice for digital signage.

It's compact nature, close-up throw distance, and rotatable lens allow it to easily fit in any location with minimal installation limitations.

It contains 4K HDMI input, as well as DisplayPort and 3G-SDI, and outputs in full high-definition. Up to four FP-Z8000 cameras can be used together to project a single larger image, with edge stitching to produce the appearance of a single dynamic image on a massive screen. It is available in black and white.

The FP-Z8000 is available now for an RRP of AUD$32,950 by contacting Simon Murphy at FUJIFILM Australia at or on 0419 770 167.
