SOLID SHINE Laser Technology
Combining 3-Chip DLP™ imaging with original SOLID SHINE Laser Phosphor technology, Panasonic 3-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser Series produces vividly colored pictures rich in detail with excellent brightness. 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 color accuracy, and high contrast in large venues.
3-Chip DLP SOLID SHINE Laser projectors capture a more accurate color space than comparable laser projectors. Blue lasers ensure greater precision while an expanded color gamut improves white-balance accuracy.
Dual Drive Laser
Dual-Drive Laser Optical Engine groups laser diodes into two discrete modules. A redundancy circuit works to minimize brightness- and color-uniformity loss should a laser diode fail, making supported products ideal for applications where picture presentation must be maintained.
The Panasonic PT-RZ21K Series is the world’s first 20,000 lm laser projector*1 to eliminate need for a consumable air filter, enabling maintenance-free operational life of 20,000 hours*3 for the whole projector. This is achieved with a hermetically shielded optical unit and heat-pipe-based internal cooling system with a one-way airflow. The projector can operate continuously for long periods in large-scale event environments without regular maintenance, saving operators considerable time and money. With no filter, light-source lifespan of 20,000 hours, and controlled, linear picture degradation, the PT-RZ21K Series leads the field for low TCO.
120 Hz Real Motion Processor
Real Motion Processor interpolates images for a 120 Hz* frame-rate. Smooth 120 Hz* reproduction is possible via simultaneous inputs (dual SDI inputs or DVI-D/HDMI). Together with a refined optical engine to enhance focus, Real Motion Processor delivers a better sense of resolution, contrast, and fluidity.
Digital Clarity Processor
Proprietary circuitry analyzes individual video frames to identify and clarify areas of the image containing fine details and textures. Algorithms pull information from four frequency bandwidths, from super-high to low, to sharpen outlines, correct contours, and reduce ringing noise.
Direct laser power output modulation achieves high contrast with less power consumption. Digitally controlled frame-by-frame scene-linking modulation ensures precise output adjustment, while accurate 20,000:1* contrast is delivered even when bright and dark scenes frequently interchange.
System Daylight View
This premium technology stops pictures washing out in bright light and assures dramatic impact for mapping and multi-projector applications. It uses sensor information to correct sharpness, gamma curves, and colors to suit on-site conditions.
SOLID SHINE Laser enables free 360-degree installation through any axis. Together with powered lens shift and wide range of optional lenses, this projector can project images from any orientation without picture distortion.
DIGITAL LINK transmits uncompressed Full HD video and control commands through a single CAT 5e or higher STP cable for distances of up to 150 m (492 ft)*. Optional DIGITAL LINK Switcher or Digital Interface Box further simplifies installation, reduces cabling and associated costs, and enhances reliability.
Geometry Manager Pro Software
Geometry Manager Pro software expands onboard functionality and simplifies multi-screen setup. The free software enables multi-screen color-matching, edge-blending, and more via networked PC. Two optional plug-in kits are available: ET-UK20, which adds screen uniformity correction and creative masking functions, and ET-CUK10, which activates Auto Screen Adjustment for simultaneous and automatic setup of multiple projectors. The latter performs multi-screen and curved-screen calibration in three steps using a camera* and networked PC, simplifying adjustment, edge blending, color matching, stacking, brightness, and black level setup.
The Panasonic PT-RZ21k projector is compatible with active 3D projection technology. Click here to view information on 3D projection using a combination of external IR transmitter and active-shutter 3D glass. Please contact your sales representative for information on passive 3D projection.
Multi Monitoring & Control Software
Panasonic Multi Monitoring & Control Software supports up to 2,048 devices over LAN and features system map visualization or auto-search of devices to be registered. The free software is available with Early Warning functions (automatic free 90-day trial available). These advanced functions enable real-time monitoring, abnormality detection, and notification before servicing is required. Administrators can achieve seamless control and real-time monitoring while preventing potential problems, saving time, and enhancing system reliability.
Optional Lenses make install a breeze
Panasonic's range of optional lenses, including ultra-short-throw lens and zoom lens for long throw distances, reducing cost of ownership for staging and event companies with large projector inventories.
