Awards success for Solid Shine projector

Panasonic’s PT-RZ370 projector has won the Star Product Award for Education at the prestigious Install Awards 2015 held at the Bloomsbury Ballroom, London.

The award was based on a project at Kingston University which saw 170 PT-RZ370 projectors installed in September 2014, as part of a £30 million investment into improving the learning environment for students and academics. The installation represented the largest rollout of Panasonic PT-RZ370 projectors in higher education anywhere in Europe.

GV Multi-media won, initiated and implemented the project, leading the University to switch to laser projection to reduce carbon emissions and to provide best value for students, given the low total cost of ownership of laser/led projectors, with 20,000 hours maintenance free operation.

Simon Harrison, Acting Pro-Vice Chancellor (Operations) at Kingston University said, "Our academics love the RZ370s. The projectors are fast start, so they can get the material up almost immediately. What's more, content looks great, exactly as our academics intended it to be presented."

Gareth Day, UK Group Manager for Visual Systems at Panasonic said, “The PT-RZ370 has a winning formula for Education. In addition to 20,000 hours maintenance free operation, its wide ranging zoom lens and RS232 emulation simplify installation, reducing the total cost of ownership.

“Our thanks go to GV Multi Media who delivered this project for Kingston University, completing the installation of 170 projectors in just four weeks.”

The installation of Panasonic projectors and displays at Moesgaard Museum was also a finalist for the Best Audience Venue Project award. AV technology has helped create a more engaging and visually impressive experience for its visitors.
