PANASONIC LAUNCHES ‘ENDURANCE’ LASER PROJECTOR FOR EDUCATION
Panasonic is set to showcase a new 1-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE laser phosphor projector, aimed at the education market, at next month’s ISE2016.
Utilising the latest DLP™ module for WUXGA resolution and a new-generation of solid-state laser diodes, the PT-RZ570 has a four-segment Quartet Colour Harmoniser colour wheel that reduces energy loss from the light source, boosting perceived brightness and improving colour accuracy.
“The PT-RZ570 is a compact projector pitched at achieving an ideal price-to-performance ratio,” said Panasonic Projector Marketing Manager Hartmut Kulessa. “It balances 5,200 lumen brightness, brilliant picture quality, marathon 20,000-hour maintenance-free operation, and practical features which make it ideal for use in mid-size lecture rooms of about 50-student capacity.”
The projector is equipped with DIGITAL LINK, which allows video and control signal transmissions using a single-cable connection of up to 150 m in Long Reach Mode, when used together with Panasonic’s optional ET-YFB200G DIGITAL LINK Switcher.
A combination of technologies, including an efficient cooling system and heat sink, mean operational noise is just 29 dB in Silent Mode. The PT-RZ570 is also capable of free 360-degree installation.
In addition, dynamic contrast helps achieve 20,000:1 contrast, modulating light output frame-by-frame according to image requirements, for deeper blacks and improved definition.
“The combination of these technologies results in picture quality that exceeds that of competitive lamp-based projectors, making text and graphics clear and comfortable for students to view,” added Hartmut Kulessa.
The PT-RZ570 ships in March 2016. It will go on show at ISE2016 alongside two further 5,000 lumens projector series. The PT-EZ590 is a series of LCD projectors with exchangeable lenses designed for education or corporate settings that require flexible projector positioning. The PT-FZ570 is a series of LCD projectors with fixed lens a large zoom and shift range, making them particularly suitable for the easy replacement of existing projectors.
