High 13,000-lm brightness and 4,000:1 contrast
The 2-Lamp Optical System uses high-output, 380 W UHM lamps to
produce high brightness of 13,000 lm. Contrast is also high at
4,000:1 resulting in sharp and crisp images.
Excellent color with pure color control
It is inherently difficult for LCD
projectors to attain both high brightness and superb color
reproduction. For this reason, in addition to the three
conventional LCD panels that control the light
intensity for the red, blue and green primary colors, the PT-EX12K
also features a Pure Color Control function that independently
controls the light intensity of yellow coloring. This provides rich
overall color expression while maintaining brightness.
Full 10-bit image processing system
The use of a full 10-bit image processing system provides smooth
tonal expression. For example, skin tones appear natural and
true to life.
The multi lamp optical system enables stable, extended
Even if one lamp goes out during use, the other lamps continue,
so projection is not interrupted. Lamp Relay mode also allows
long-time, continuous operation.

Highly durable optical engine ensures excellent long time image
The LCD panels and polarizers inside the
projector's optical block tend to degrade over time. Their
degradation adversely affects image quality. Inorganic materials
are used for the LCD panels, and for the polarizers that
are prone to degradation, to resist time-related changes in the
optical block, therefore achieving a replacement cycle of up to
The long lasting eco filter with user friendly maintenance
The PT-EX12K features the Eco Filter, which efficiently captures
dust and requires no replacement for up to 12,000 hours.*2 It
consists of Micro Cut Filters*3 that use an ion effect to collect
extremely small dust particles. These large-surface, pleated
filters have a high dust collecting performance. In addition to its
long replacement cycle, the Eco Filter can be washed with water*4
for repeated use, further increasing its ecological performance.
The Eco Filter can also be removed through the top panel of the
projector, enabling filter replacement on ceiling-mounted
projectors without having to detach the projector from its mounting
The horizontal/vertical lens shift function and a vareity of
Both zooming and focusing can be done by remote control. The
wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift
function assures convenience and versatility during installation.
You can also choose from a wide variety of lenses, from short or
long focus zoom lenses to a fixed focus lens for rear projection.
This makes it possible to install the projector in a variety of
Lens centered design
A lens centered, symmetrical design provides ease of
installation, eliminating the need for any special considerations
when planning the installation site.
The projector can be rotated 360° vertically for flexible
installation. This allows projection from directly above or below,
for exciting visual possibilities in art galleries, theaters and
Corner keystone correction enables angled projection
All you need to do is designate four points as the corners of
the projected image, and this function automatically carries out
horizontal and vertical keystone correction.
Multi-Screen Support System seamlessly connects multiple
The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts multiple
screens: Edge blending, color matching.
The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance
This function corrects for slight variations in the color
reproduction range of individual projectors.
Versatile interfaces and illuminated terminals and control
The wide-ranging terminals include 2 sets of RGB inputs, an HDMI input, and a DVI-D
input. Mounting the optional Interface Board ET-MD16SD1 also
accommodates HD/SD-SDI signal input. The terminal connection area
is LED illuminated, and a backlight is
provided for the control panel buttons, ensuring smooth and easy
operation in the dark.
Mechanical Shutter for a total screen blackout
The Mechanical Shutter lets you mechanically block the light to
completely blackout the screen, and prevents light leakage from the
lens. When closing the shutter, the projection image gradually
fades out, then gradually fades in when opening, which brings more
attractive stage effects.
Easy remote control and observation
A web browser on a computer connected through a wired LAN system
lets you remotely operate projectors and check their status. An
e-mail messaging function can also notify you when a lamp needs
replacement, and indicate the overall projector status. In
addition, Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software is
available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic
projectors from a single PC. The wired LAN terminal is
compatible with PJLink™ (class1), an open protocol that is used by
many manufacturers, to enable integrated control of systems that
contain different brands of projectors.
Top panel lamp replacement simplifies maintenance
The lamp can be reached through the top panel for easy
replacement. This eliminates the need to detach the projector from
its mounting bracket in ceiling-mounted applications and greatly
