The Lens Memory adjusts the image size and location in up to three different projection positions and the combination of four new 465W UHM lamps and the Dynamic Iris allow the PTDZ21K2 to deliver a 10,000:1 contrast ratio to ensure super high brightness and best possible picture quality.
The PT-DZ21K2 is also 3D ready and for medical school and hospital applications, the projector is equipped with the DICOM Simulation Mode*, enabling end-users to view X-ray images. The PTDZ21k2 helps realize unique and captivating video performance with numerous built-in features. The Lens Memory adjusts the image size and location in up to three different projection positions. Users can program the mechanical shutter to fade the image in and out during show transitions, and it also has built in Edge Blending, as well as Multi-Unit Brightness Control for projection onto wide screens and surfaces to create an immersive experience. Furthermore, the PTDZ21K2 can project onto various curved-screens with the Geometric Adjustment feature, which can be enhanced with the optional upgrade kit, ET-UK20, to support even more diverse curvatures and shapes with bitmap masking.
This DLP projector has been designed with an extremely small footprint due to a highly efficient optical design as well as an improved liquid cooling system that makes it possible to keep the noise level to a minimum during operation. Due to its compact size, the PT DZ21K2 total cost of ownership is further enhanced by saving warehouse space and minimizing the cost of shipping from one location to another. The PT-dz21k2 is built to maximize savings with a maintenance-free Eco Filter with a lifespan of up to 12,000 hours, and low-power consumption of 2,300W.
Basic installation flexibility is provided by a comprehensive optional lens selection that supports a wide range of throw distances. 360-degree installation capability enables projection onto floors and ceilings. The projector also boasts high durability with an operating temperature between 32°~113° Fahrenheit. Flexibility and reliability are further enhanced by the projectors’ capability to handle more than 100 input signals. Several available input terminals include SDIx2, HDMI, DVI-D, LAN (RJ45) and 3D timing signal IN/OUT.
Quad Lamp System for 20,000 Lumens Brightness or Extended Operation
A unique high-power UHM quad-lamp system has allowed Panasonic to dramatically reduce cabinet volume and weight while projecting images with up to an astounding 20,000 lm* of brightness
The quad-lamp system allows the projector to keep working even if a lamp should fail. Lamp Relay Mode alternates lamp operation to enable efficient and reliable 24/7 projection. Quad, Triple, Dual, and Single Lamp modes can also be used.
Dynamic Iris for a High 10,000:1 Contrast Ratio
Panasonic’s Dynamic Iris uses a scene-linking aperture mechanism to achieve a remarkable 10,000:1* contrast without sacrificing brightness. This helps the PT-DZ21k2 to reproduce deeper, richer blacks, and provides images with more textured and realistic details.
Frame Creation Technology Reduces Motion Blur
Together with a unique high-speed Real Motion Processer chip, Panasonic has refined the PTDZ21K2 optical engine to enhance focus performance for a better sense of resolution, contrast, and fluidity. Real Motion Processor creates supplemental frames and interpolates for a fast 120 Hz* frame-rate, resulting in incredibly smooth and realistic reproduction of motion. Further, 120 Hz* images can be displayed with Dual-link 3G-SDI, DVI-D, and HDMI simultaneous inputs
Detail Clarity Processor 5 Clarifies and Enhances Fine Details
This proprietary circuit analyzes each individual image frame by frame to clarify areas containing fine details and textures. A new processing algorithm pulls hidden information from the super high, high, medium, and low frequency bands, sharpening outlines, correcting contours, and reducing ringing noise to improve the sense of resolution and clarity of fine details
System Daylight View 3 Improves Color Perception
This proprietary technology optimizes image quality to improve color perception of images projected onto external or internal walls and other surfaces or in environments with bright ambient light. With high brightness of up to 16,000 lm*, the PT DZ21K2 Series delivers clear and comfortable viewing even with the lights on
DICOM Simulation Mode
This imaging mode is similar to the DICOM Part 14 medical imaging standard. It lends a film-like resolution to X-ray images, making the PT-DZ21K2 Series ideal for medical presentations and training
