High-brightness in a small package

RQ22K is the number one compact and lightweight projector in the high-brightness class and it has the smallest footprint of any 20,000lm projector. At just 54kg, it’s also extremely lightweight and easy to handle, making it perfect for rental or stage use. The RQ22K is almost the same size as the DZ21K2 and will fit in the same frame.

Incredible colours

If you’re looking for vivid colour and unbelievable brightness, the RQ22K delivers. It combines 3-Chip DLP™ imaging with4K+ SOLID SHINE Laser Phosphor technology to give stunning image quality. Solid-state laser light sources and specially engineered heat-resistant phosphor wheels work together with three discrete DLP™ modules (R/G/B) for high brightness, true colour accuracy, and high contrast in large venues: ideal for exhibitions, show and other large events. The RQ22K is compatible with the latest colour space standards so you can be sure it will reproduce images accurately.

Achieve the impossible at 4K+ resolution

The PT-RQ22K gives staging innovators an edge where the limits of projection are routinely tested. As the world’s smallest and lightest 20,000-lumen-class 4K+ projector, the PT-RQ22K brings incredible image quality into 1DLP sized projector cabinet.

Easily handled by fewer people and supporting free 360° installation, innovative projection ideas become reality in 4K+. Hermetically sealed optics and filterless heat-sink-based cooling underline reliability in smoky environments, while solid-state lasers consistently control the brightness ramp over 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation. With shared assets across Panasonic’s large-venue lineup enhancing ROI, your transition to 4K+ projection is smooth and cost-effective.

 

Inside the 4K+ Image

Achieving 4K+ with Original Pixel-Quadrupling Technology

Better-than-4K resolution is achieved by shifting each pixel of the 3 WQXGA (2560x1600) DMD chips vertically and horizontally at super high speed, effectively quadrupling the pixel-count. Working in concert with Real Motion Processor 240 Hz frame-creation, Quad Pixel Drive technology produces film-like 5120 x 3200-pixel (4K+/16:10) images. As well as silk-smooth video, this powerful processing engine renders text in the finest detail for lectures and presentations.

 

Project from any angle

The RQ22K is compatible with all of our existing 3-Chip DLP lenses including our ET-D75LE95 ultra-short throw lens to make it easy to install, even in tight spaces like galleries and exhibitions. Thanks to SOLID SHINE Laser technology, the projector can handle 360-degree installation through any axis: it can be mounted at whatever angle you like without distorting the picture.

 

Failsafe design means the show will go on

The RQ22K uses 3-Chip DLP™ for high-quality, high-brightness projection and colour uniformity that lasts forever. The RQ22K’s mounting structure has a rigid design to prevent external vibration affecting the image.

What’s more, it’s completely dust and smoke resistant: the laser modules are hermetically sealed so no smoke or dust can get in and the projector has a very efficient filter-less design – a world first. This is achieved with an heat-pipe-based internal cooling system with a one-way airflow. The Durable Dust-proof Optical System means you’ll get stable projection even in dusty environments. The Dust-proof Optical System and high-performance cooling system combine to give you 20,000 hours of real maintenance-free use (in light source output normal mode). Both systems eliminate the need for filters (dust and smoke cut filters) a significant benefit which makes the RQ22K stand out in the toughest live entertainment applications.

More of what you know and love

With the DZ21, Panasonic created a reference model for large venue and rental projectors. The RQ22K builds on the DZ21’s heritage to give you improved performance along with the inputs and menu layout you’re familiar with. It works perfectly with the DZ21 and DZ21K2 thanks to Mix&Match feature. And thanks to our patent-pending Contrast Synch technology, the RQ22K offers dynamic contrast with high contrast of 20,000:1 even when used in multi-projection applications.
