PANASONIC LAUNCHES UPGRADED 5,000 LUMENS PROJECTOR LINEUP
Panasonic has launched three new projector ranges in the 5,000 lumens class at ISE 2016 in Amsterdam, aimed at the education and corporate markets.
Utilising a robust1-Chip 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 brightness and improving colour accuracy.
It balances 5,200 lumen brightness, brilliant picture quality, 20,000-hour maintenance-free operation, which make it ideal for use in mid-size lecture rooms where heavy duty is needed.
In addition to the PT-RZ570, Panasonic introduced the small and lightweight PT-EZ590 series, which updates the popular EZ range of multi-purpose LCD projectors. Intended for classrooms, conference rooms, and lecture halls, it outputs at up to 5,400 lumens in WUXGA (6,200 lm in XGA) and more than doubles the contrast performance to 10,000:1 over its predecessor and can be as quite as 29db. Thanks to its exchangeable lenses, this series is allowing flexible installation and positioning.
The third projector line up is the PT-FZ570 LCD projector series. Aimed at higher education it offers exceptional durability, low maintenance, and outstanding picture.
The projectors have been engineered for endurance with lamp replacement extended to 8,000 hours in ECO Mode and reusable Super Eco Filters with a replacement cycle of 16,000 hours - equating to years of maintenance-free operation. A large zoom range and lens shift makes this the ideal projector to be put into existing installations where it can replace an outdated projector.
The projectors update the award-winning PT-FW430 series and are offered in two 4,500 lumens variants, the PT-FZ570 with WUXGA resolution and the PT-FW530, with WXGA resolution, each with 10,000:1 contrast ratio. They are particularly suitable for easy replacement of existing projectors thanks to the fixed lens equipped with a large zoom and shift range.
“We have introduced a range of projectors that can satisfy the needs of a many users. From heavy users such as Museums or Retailers to smaller office, conferencing spaces and classrooms, this really does strengthen our line-up” said Hartmut Kulessa, Panasonic Projector Marketing Manager.
The PT-RZ570 ships in March 2016, while the PT-EZ590 and PT-FZ570 series ship in April.
