Panasonic is proud to announce the PT-DZ21K series of 20,000
lumen 3-Chip DLP projectors which are ideal for large
The series includes the PT-DZ21K
with WUXGA (1,920 x
1,200) resolution and 20,000 lumens of brightness, the
with SXGA+ (1,400 x 1,050)
resolution and 20,000 lumens of brightness, and the
with WXGA (1,366 x 768) resolution
and 16,500 lumens of brightness.
In addition to the high brightness and compact size, the projectors
boast long lamp replacement cycles of up to 2,000 hours, 3D
compatibility and installation flexibility; making the
projectors ideal for large-venue applications. This includes
environments such as auditoriums and museums and rental and staging
applications that require easy handling.
The combination of four new 465W UHM lamps and Dynamic Iris allow
the projectors to deliver a 10,000:1 contrast ratio for high
brightness and high picture quality. The PT-DZ21K and PT-DS20K
projectors are 3D ready, providing greater visual impact for the
viewer. For medical school and hospital applications, the
projectors are equipped with the DICOM Simulation mode, enabling
end-users to view X-ray images.
The devices have 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. The PT-DZ21K Series 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 under
The Panasonic PT-DZ21K Series helps realise 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 all three
models have built in Edge Blending, as well as Multi-Unit
Brightness Control for projections onto wide screens and surfaces
to create an immersive experience. Furthermore, both PT-DZ21K and
PT-DS20K projectors are able to 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.
In addition, end-users can remotely monitor and operate the
PT-DZ21K Series projectors using Panasonic's own Multi Projector
Monitoring and Control Software. The web browser feature enables
users to view and send email alerts from the projector.
The PT-DZ21K projector will be available from May 2012, and the
PT-DS20K and PT-DW17K will be available in June 2012.
