Reliability, precision and the latest technology: a projector should offer all of this. Panasonic is aware of this and is bringing two different projects to market at the same time. The new models PT-RS11K and PT-RZ12K are high-quality 3-chip DLP projectors and possess double laser arrays.
New generation projectors
The laser projectors are equipped with the latest technology. That’s why the 3-chip DLP projectors PT-RZ12K and PT-RS11K are well-suited for discerning customers, because they generate the highest quality images through their laser technology. Above all, they are utilised in places with digital signage, museums and universities. With an image repetition frequency of 120Hz and frame replacement technology, which interpolates certain incoming signals (24/50/69Hz) to a higher frequency, both of the devices demonstrate an unbelievably high level of resolution on moving images. Motion blur is targeted and reduced.
The projects deliver an impressive luminous flux, with an unbelievable 12,000 lumen available for illumination. The SXGA+ resolution is utilised by the PT-RS11K, while the PT-RZ12K uses the natural WUXGA resolution. The development of the devices is so advanced that the projectors can now be used without any maintenance. The 20,000 operating hours without filter replacement clearly speak for long, maintenance-free operation. Statistically speaking, one could run the projectors two hours a day for seven years. These specs are optimal for digital signage, which will continue to grow in the future. The innovative liquid-cooled system ensures that the operating noise levels are reduced and the laser performance improved. The PT-RZ12K and PT-RS11K projectors possess a robust secure dual drive laser engine.
In comparison to lamp-based projections, laser projections are quite inexpensive in respect to their overall operation costs. At the moment there are many laser projectors on that market, but they still contain a grave drawback: their laser diodes are connected in series and therefore interdependent. If one goes out of commission it means that many others could go out. Panasonic intentionally counteracted this phenomenon and for that reason has developed a system in which every single diode is controlled separately.
