Panasonic’s new 12,600lm (center) PT-RZ120U 1-Chip DLP Solid Shine laser projector, being showcased with the ET-DLE030 Ultra Short Throw Lens, offers crisp and vivid imaging due to its dual-laser-module and dual-phosphor-wheel Solid Shine laser drives. A unique color-wheel system enhanced by dual heat-resistant phosphor wheels works in harmony to maximize color accuracy while reducing energy loss from the light sources. This cutting-edge technology achieves vibrant picture quality and 10,000:1 contrast ratio. The PT-RZ120 is capable of 24/7 maintenance-free operation for up to 20,000 hours thanks to air-tight and dust-resistant optical units and cooling systems negating the need for air filters. The ultimate projector for flexibility, the PT-RZ120 shares optional lenses with Panasonic’s 1-Chip DLP projector family, offers 360-degree installation, 4K signal input and DIGITAL LINK (based on HDBaseT technology) for single-cable connection which simplifies installation, reduces cabling and associated costs, and enhances reliability. The PT-RZ120U 1-Chip DLP Solid Shine laser projectors are available in black or white cabinets and provide the highest image quality, exceptional reliability and flexibility to meet the needs of any house of worship’s environmental projection applications, projection mapping requirements, and digital signage solutions.
Professional video products showcased include the Panasonic’s AK-UC4000 Camera System offering high-quality 4K video that is only possible with a large sensor, along with a wide range of functions such as HDR, BT.2020 and high-speed shooting. The AW-UE150, a new 4K integrated PTZ camera, provides 4K/UHD 60p capture, a first for a broadcast-class PTZ, with the widest viewing angle (75.1 degrees, horizontal) in its class, and integrated with a TecnoPoint top track rail system for precision robotic camera moves. The UE150 will be shown with the AW-RP150, a new touchscreen camera controller.
