Panasonic launches company’s brightest large venue laser projector

Panasonic has introduced a 31,000 lumens SOLID SHINE laser phosphor projector, designed specifically for large venue applications.

Available from October 2016 in both WUXGA and SXGA+, the PT-RZ31K series will be the brightest in the Panasonic range with an exceptionally compact and lightweight body harnessing powerful SOLID SHINE laser technology.

A unique dual light source feature allows for uninterrupted projection as it offers redundancy in case of a technical fault. This makes the projector ideal for high-profile entertainment, staging, rental and exhibition applications.

Panasonic’s proprietary SOLID SHINE laser technology delivers long lasting bright and immersive pictures and is engineered for 24/7 continuous operation without colour degradation.

The range is compatible with Panasonic’s existing 3-Chip DLP™ projector lenses, allowing operators to utilise lenses in their inventories, maximising the investment they have already made.

The RZ31K not only offers the extremely high lumen output and superb laser colour reproduction required for large venue applications, but also contains a Real Motion Processor, which uses frame-creation technology to reproduce extremely smooth video images with minimal motion blur.

In normal operation, the RZ31K is designed for 20,000 hours of maintenance free operation. Image brightness is greatly affected by dust, however, with an airtight optical block and hermetically sealed dustproof image devices, the PT-RZ31K provides an extremely reliable foundation for impressive large-scale light shows and 3D mapping.

The laser light source also allows for flexible installation, with vertical, horizontal and tilting 360-degree projection.

Hartmut Kulessa, European Projector Marketing Manager at Panasonic, said, “Thanks to its dual light source technology, this new range has the potential to virtually eliminate the concept of hot back-up. This is sure to go down well with event production teams, as projector stacks can become smaller and less complicated than in the past, saving time and money and allowing venues to sell more seats.”
