Panasonic has launched three new low-maintenance, ultra-compact 1-Chip DLP laser projector lines, first unveiled at InfoComm 2016.
The new solutions are between 6,000 and 10,000 lumens and include three models in the PT-RZ970 series, two in the PT-RZ770 series, and another two models in the PT-RZ660 series. They are aimed at exhibition, staging, signage, control room, education and meeting room applications.
The projectors have airtight and dust-resistant optical drives which eliminate the need for filters and lamp replacement, extending maintenance-free service life to up to 20,000 hours.
Hartmut Kulessa, European projector marketing manager at Panasonic, commented: “Precision white balance, natural colour reproduction and outstanding brightness are enabled by hybrid wheel technology, featuring a robust phosphor wheel and a quartet colour harmoniser colour wheel. This maximises colour reproduction whilst reducing energy loss from the light source.
“Energy efficient 10,000:1 contrast is achieved with digitally modulated dynamic contrast that controls light output frame-by-frame according to image requirements. Multi-projector sync now interlocks network-connected projector’s dynamic contrast and shutter functions, a new feature for Panasonic.”
