Panasonic launches quiet 1-chip DLP projector range18 March 2015
Panasonic says its newly launched 1-chip DLP projector series is the quietest in the 7,000-lumen class.
Aimed at continuous 24-hour operation in public display and signage, as well as rental and staging applications, the DZ780 projectors feature a liquid cooling system that reduces operating noise to 30dB when projecting at full lamp output power.
Hartmut Kulessa, marketing manager projector products, Panasonic Visual System Solutions, said: “Again in an installation-class projector, we have provided a spec sheet which will set the DZ780 series apart from the competition.
“What is more, the series reduces the total cost of ownership by doubling recommended lamp replacement to 4,000 hours in normal mode, over comparable models. There is also no requirement for air filter replacement, because of the dust-proof hermetic optical engine.”
Dual lamps and Relay Mode enable continuous 24-hour operation while ensuring uninterrupted playback in the event of lamp failure. For the first time at in a Panasonic projector at this level, high-end System Daylight View 2 joins Dynamic RGB Booster and Detail Clarity Processor technologies to boost colour reproduction, detail and brightness, even in well-lit spaces.
Geometric adjustment for curved-screen projection is featured, as is multi-screen support with colour matching and edge blending. The DZ780 series is also compatible with the optional Geometric Manager Pro and Auto Screen Adjustment plug-in software that automatically sets up and calibrates projectors in a network for multiple or curved-screen projection.
In another exclusive for this class of projector, the DZ780 series is now compatible with Art-Net DMX. It also features DIGITAL LINK, allowing long-distance transmission of up to 1080p content using a single cable connection of up to 100m for WUXGA resolution.
The DZ780 series comprises the PT-DZ780 (7,000 lumens, WUXGA), PT-DW750 (7,000 lumens, WXGA), and PT-DX820 (8,200 lumens, XGA) and launches in April 2015.
