Laser-Powered Brightness, Clarity, and Reliability for Large Venues
The DU8090Z is class leading in the next generation of advanced projection technology — LASER — at 8,000 ANSI lumens* bright. Built lamp-free, it provides a low cost of ownership, with minimal maintenance, and gives a stable, high-quality projection for up to 20,000 hours. A sealed optical engine and filter-less design provides optimal performance, making it an ideal solution for large venues. With impressively vivid colors, the DU8090Z offers the most immersive big-screen experience available in digital projection.
Widely regarded as the future of professional and consumer projection technology, laser projectors possess numerous advantages over traditional lamp-based systems. From enhanced brightness to minimal costs of ownership, laser projectors have quickly become the optimal projection choice for a diverse range of applications.
Lamp-based Projector
Laser Projector
Enhanced Imagery
From the first time they power on to their final use before being replaced, high intensity discharge lamps (central to lamp-based projectors) steadily lose fifty percent of their initial brightness capability. While this degradation is an accepted aspect of lamp-based systems, brightness decay affects laser projectors to a much lesser degree. Over the course of their 20,000 hour lifetimes, blue laser diodes only diminish by twenty percent, resulting in greater brightness over dramatically longer periods of use. Furthermore, lasers can achieve significantly greater peak brightness levels than HD lamps, often producing twice as many lumens.
How It Works
To generate a full spectrum of color, the 3 primary colors have to be created from a single color laser – in this case, a blue laser. This is achieved by using a cluster of blue lasers that shine onto a spinning yellow phosphor wheel that also incorporates a clear segment that allows the blue light from the lasers to shine through (this is the blue primary color). The generated yellow light then passes through a color wheel that in turn generates red and green – the other primary colors. After passing through a diffusion window, the colored light is presented to the Digital Micro Mirror chip, the imaging device. The DMD switches at a very high rate and presents the on, colored pixels to the optical lens system for display on the screen or projected surface.

A simple, precise technology that is efficient and generates sharp, and clearly defined images, as only a single chip is required.
Minimal Required Maintenance
Perfect for corporate, education, retail, and government environments, where reliability and low cost of ownership are critical, the lamp-less operation of laser-based projectors grants up to 20,000 hours of sharp, maintenance-free operation. Featuring an instantaneous power-on and off, a sealed optical engine, and an airflow-optimized system layout, the DU8090Z boasts the industry-leading reliability and durability synonymous with Vivitek.

Frequently Asked Questions
I plug my computer in to the projector and I don’t get an image.
The projector has many input connectors. Each connector is labelled (HDMI 1, RGB 1 ....). Ensure the projector is switched to that input using the “Source” button on the projector. Also, the computer may require a toggle switch to turn on the output port. This is typically accomplished by holding down the “Fn” at the same time as a Function key. Each laptop manufacturer may use a different “function” key. Typically, it is F4 or F8. The symbol on the key is usually a laptop as well as a square. Please refer to your laptop manufacturers Users Guide for additional information.
Is it OK to use 3rd. party lamps or lamps quoted to be Original Equipment Manufacturer lamps?
Please refer to lamp warranty under Warranty tab and then Vivitek Warranties, as using lamps that are not Vivitek supplied may result in warranties being voided and your projector not meeting required safety standards. Lamp manufacturers provide many different classes of lamps and projectors are built around a specific lamp. While being “original manufacturer” lamps, it is not guaranteed that the class of lamp is the same as the Vivitek specified lamp from the manufacturer.
My projector won’t turn on via an RS232 or IP command. If it is powered on, other commands work fine.
In the menu, go to Settings 2 menu, then Advanced 1 menu. Turn Low Power Mode to OFF.
How often should I change the filters in my DLP?
The majority of Vivitek projectors, due to sealed DLP optics, do not require filters. This eases maintenance requirements.The filters can be cleaned with running water. Please make sure to let them dry completely before installing them back. The filters should be changed if they are torn or worn.
How do I take care of my DLP?
Please refer to Warning and Precautions in the User's Manual.
Why are the lamps so expensive?
The selling price of the lamps is based on the purchase price we obtain from the manufacturers. Vivitek would reflect the price reduction if there is any from the manufacturers.
Why do I have to replace the lamp myself?
Lamp is a consumable part that needs to be replaced regularly. Customers can have a technician do the replacement, but the labor would not be covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
Why can't I order a lamp over the phone?
At the current stage, we don't process orders over the phone to protect our customers' credit card information. When the credit card information is sent to us by fax, only employees with authorization have access to this information.
Does HD really look better than SDTV?
Yes. HDTV has at least twice the linear resolution of standard-definition television (SDTV), thus allowing much more detail to be shown compared with analog television or regular DVD. In addition, the technical standards for broadcasting HDTV are also able to handle 16:9 aspect ratio pictures without using letterboxing or anamorphic stretching, thus further increasing the effective resolution for such content.
Where can I send a letter praising your products and customer support?
Customers can send us an email at customerservice@vivitekcorp.com.
How do I get another copy of my manual?
User's Manual can be downloaded here.
What other kinds of products do you make?
Vivitek also manufactures DLP projectors.
How long has Vivitek been in business
Vivitek was established in 2004.
What are the advantages of DLP over LCD or Plasma?
Please refer to Texas Instrument's website Here
What is DLP and how does it work?
Please refer to Texas Instrument's website Here
How do I get warranty service?
By calling our tech support at 877-603-3582 and providing the proof of purchase when required. Their hours of operation are from Monday to Friday, 9AM to 6PM Pacific time.
What is the life expectancy of my projector lamp?
Lamps typically last about 1,500 ~ 10,000 hours. Usually the higher the brightness, the lower the lamp hours. Keep in mind however that some lamps won't make it all the way to their estimated life spans. If you operate your projector in a warm environment that is not adequately ventilated or at higher elevations without switching to “high altitude” mode in the menu, this will reduce lamp life. It is also strongly recommended that the projectors be connected to a surge protector as power surges can damage your lamp. Adhering to the recommended power-off cycling will assist in maintaining lamp life. Frequent powering on/off will also reduce lamp life expectancy so it may be better to leave the projector on if you intend to use again within 20 minutes. Using the projector in Economy mode will extend your lamp life.
How do I replace the lamp myself?
In the user's manual, there is a section that shows you how to replace the lamp.
How much do replacement lamps/remotes cost?
You will need to contact your local/online reseller. Vivitek is available through authorized retailers, e-tailers, dealers, distributors and resellers. Vivitek has partnered with key partners around the U.S. These authorized partners can be found under the where to buy section.
How do I register my projector for warranty?
Complete and mail in the registration card included with the purchase of your product or fill out the online product registration here.
What is DLP® technology and how does it work?
DLP®-based projectors produce stunning images with digital clarity and precision. The DLP chip uses millions of tiny mirrors to reflect all colors of visible light to project an all-digital image on the screen. Click here for more detailed information.
Where can I purchase your products?
Vivitek is available through authorized retailers, e-tailers, dealers, distributors and resellers. Vivitek has partnered with key partners around the U.S. These authorized partners can be found under the where to buy section.
How do I synchronize my laptop with my projector?
On most laptops, hold down the 'Fn' + 'F4' keys. This may vary, depending on you laptop's brand it may not be 'F4', but 'F5', 'F7' or 'F8'. On the correct function key, there is a symbol 2 squares, have the letters "LCD", or have the symbol of a laptop/square on it. Please refer to your laptops user's guide for additional information.
Low Cost of Ownership
Being lampless systems, laser projectors do not require lamp and filter replacements, resulting in dramatically low costs of ownership. In addition to virtually eliminating the cost of consumables, laser projectors need only minimal maintenance as compared to lamp-based systems, again providing users with valuable savings over time.
BrilliantColor™
BrilliantColor from Texas Instruments is a multi-color processing technology that produces vibrant images. BrilliantColor technology uses up to six colors, instead of just the three primary colors, red, green and blue, to improve color accuracy and brightens secondary colors.
DLP® Technology
DLP® chipset-based projectors produce vivid images with digital clarity and precision. The DLP® chip uses millions of tiny mirrors to reflect all the colors of visible light to project a digital image onto a screen. DLP® technology delivers high contrast ratios and minimizes the gaps between pixels for bright, sharp pictures.
