Panasonic hits new heights with 50,000 lumens 4K projector

Panasonic has announced the launch of the world’s first single body 50,000 lumens 3-Chip DLPTM SOLID SHINE laser projector  with True 4K resolution, providing new potential for creating transcendent experiences across live events and themed entertainment.

The PT-RQ50K maintains Panasonic’s trend of creating projectors which combine high brightness with relatively compact dimensions simplifying installation, especially important when working under time constraints at large events. Additionally, a single RQ50K offers the same potential as multiple lower brightness projectors, saving on installation and setup.

The RQ50K combines 50,000 lumens brightness with ultra-sharp native 4K resolution in an easy to handle all-in-one body. In addition, the deployment of separate red and blue SOLID SHINE laser-phosphor drives ensures an advanced level of colour reproduction, providing vibrant and immersive images to engage audiences.

“The increasing popularity of experience orientated projection in live events and the themed entertainment sector was a key consideration behind the development of the RQ50K,” said Hartmut Kulessa, European Marketing Manager at Panasonic Business. “More than ever, diverse spaces are wrapped in projections creating memorable experiences for audiences. The outstanding brightness and image quality of the projector allows creatives in this entertainment space to push the boundaries in terms of the level of detail and immersive quality of their content.”

Panasonic has extracted even higher performance from the cooling system technology featured on its flagship 30,000 lumens PT-RQ32K to achieve almost double the brightness within the similar compact body. Hermetically sealed optics and filterless design contribute to its 20,000 hours of maintenance-free projection, even within severe environments.

Reliability is further enhanced with a new ‘dualised’ concept within the projector. In addition to dual laser drives and backup video inputs, the RQ50K also features dual power supplies to ensure total reliability.

The PT-RQ50 is set for release in December 2019. For more information please visit Panasonic at Booth 1-H20, Hall 1, ISE2019, Amsterdam RAI, February 5–8, or learn more about Panasonic projection and professional displays solutions at https://business.panasonic.co.uk/visual-system/
