Panasonic PT-RZ12KU DLP Projector - NO LENS

Bright and Vivid Picture Quality

Combining 3-Chip DLP? imaging with Panasonic?s original SOLID SHINE Laser technology, the PT-RZ12K Series achieves truly stunning picture quality. Two powerful solid-state laser light sources, a heat-resistant phosphor wheel, and three independent DLP? chips for red, green, and blue ensures class-leading brightness, color accuracy, and contrast. A heat-resistant phosphor wheel ensures high brightness and excellent reliability for long periods.

Accurate Color Reproduction

The PT-RZ12K Series captures a more accurate Rec. 709-compliant color space than comparable laser projectors. A blue laser ensures greater precision, while an expanded color gamut improves white balance accuracy.

Ultra-Durable Laser Optical Engine for Continuous 24-Hour Operation

Dual Drive Laser Optical Engine uses two discrete light sources grouping laser diodes into modules. A failsafe laser light source redundancy circuit ensures minimal reduction in brightness and color uniformity in the event of laser diode failure, making PT-RZ12K Series ideal for mission-critical applications. Further, brightness decreases gradually and in a linear rather than exponential fashion (as is common to lamp-based projectors) over its 20,000-hour* maintenance-free service life.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

Large, pin-sharp images will not burn a hole in your pocket. Expect up to 20,000 hours* maintenance-free service at full power with no filters to clean or replace1 thanks to a fully sealed optical block.

Dustproof for Ultimate Endurance

The PT-RZ12K Series has hermetically sealed laser modules, a long-life Eco Filter, and a new air-intake system to extend life and maintain picture quality in locations with dust contamination. SOLID SHINE Laser products exceed rigorous dustproofing requirements for operation in environments containing 0.150 mg of dust per cubic meter2>.

Efficient Cooling System Assures Reliable Operation

The PT-RZ12K Series employs a newly developed direct liquid cooling system for the laser light source that features a redesigned air intake and a solid aluminum heat sink to suppress temperature rises. This allows stable operation in ambient temperatures of up to 50 ?C (122 ?F)3 while reducing operating noise to just 43 dB.

Eco Filter Extends Replacement Up to 20,000 Hours1

The Eco Filter has an electrostatic Micro Cut Filter that collects minute dust particles with an ion effect. It joins with a dust-resistant cabinet to enable long-term use even in punishing conditions. A long maintenance cycle of up to 20,000 hours1 reduces hassle, and the eco-friendly washable filter4 can be reused, reducing cost and waste.

Lightweight Design Outputs up to 12,000 Lumens

LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN OUTPUTS UP TO 12,000 LM A new phosphor wheel material was selected to withstand heat generated by the high-output laser light source. With a custom-designed drive system optimized for the light source, the PT-RZ12K Series can safely achieve 12,000 lm of brightness.

Original Panasonic Technology Reduces Motion Blur

Together with a unique high-speed Real Motion Processer chip, Panasonic has refined the PT-RZ12K Series? optical engine to enhance focus performance for a better sense of resolution, contrast, and fluidity. Real Motion Processor creates supplemental frames and interpolates for a fast 120 Hz5 frame-rate, resulting in incredibly smooth and realistic reproduction of motion. Further, images of up to 120 Hz5 can be displayed with Dual-link 3G-SDI, DVI-D, and HDMI simultaneous inputs.

Selectable Operational Modes Maintain Image Quality Longer

While the brightness of conventional lamp-based projectors drops rapidly due to age deterioration, laser light source brightness decreases gradually in a linear rather than exponential fashion. The PT-RZ12K Series features brightness and color sensors to precisely optimize and maintain brightness for 20,000 hours* or more. Approx. 20,000 Hours* of Continuous Operation (Normal Mode)

In Normal Mode with maximum 12,000 lm brightness, PT-RZ12K Series returns approximately 20,000 hours* light-source service life. Eco Mode at 9,600 lm extends light source replacement to approximately 24,000 hours*. These modes are suitable for roles in education or for signage applications.

Up to 10 Years6 Operation with Constant Brightness Modes

In environments where high brightness is not necessary, such as surveillance, control, and simulation rooms, constant operation modes extend light source replacement to up to 87,600 hours6 in Long Life 3 Mode?about 10 years of 24/7 projection?with consistent brightness and color.

User Operating Mode

In addition to preset operating modes, the PT-RZ12K Series can be customized to achieve your preferred balance of brightness or extended life. Brightness can be set from 2,300 to 12,000 lm or the lifetime set to a maximum of 10 years.

Flexible Setup and Smooth Operation

Unlike conventional lamp-based projectors, the PT-RZ12K Series? SOLID SHINE Laser system allows free 360-degree installation through any axis. Together with powered lens shift and a wide range of optional lenses, the projector can be mounted in any way desired without picture distortion.

Single-Cable DIGITAL LINK Connection

DIGITAL LINK supports transmission of uncompressed HD video, audio7, and control commands through a single cable (CAT 5e or higher STP cable) for distances of up to 150 m (492 ft)8. Add an optional DIGITAL LINK Switcher or Digital Interface Box to further simplify installation complexity in large venues while reducing cost and improving reliability at the same time.

Backup Input Setting Assures Reliablility and Optimizes Performance

The Backup Input Setting allows the signal to be switched to the backup input signal as smoothly as possible should the primary input signal be disrupted9. This function ensures high reliability and is ideal for mission-critical control rooms, projection mapping, staging, and other applications where image display should not be interrupted.

Quick Start, Quick Off

The laser light source does not require time to warm up, so the image appears almost instantly with PT-RZ12K Series projectors. There?s also no cooling time required when turning the power off, so you can quickly turn the projector on and off as many times as needed.

Shares Common Lenses

The PT-RZ12K Series share optional lenses with Panasonic 3-Chip DLP? projector range, including the ET-D75LE90 ultra-short throw lens.

* At this time the brightness will have decreased to approximately half of its original level (Dynamic Contrast Mode: 3, Image Mode: Dynamic). Panasonic recommends cleaning or checkup at point of purchase after every 20,000-hour period (approximately). Light source lifetime may be reduced depending on environmental conditions. Replacement of parts other than the light source may be required in a shorter period.

1 Usage environment affects filter maintenance cycle.

2 Dustproof tests are conducted to confirm operational effectiveness under conditions with 0.15 mg/m3 of particulate matter (based on tests by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers [ASHRAE], and the Japanese Building Maintenance Association). Measurements are made using acceleration tests.

3 When operational mode is set to Normal, operating temperature is from 0 ?C (32 ?F) to 50 ?C (122 ?F), and operating temperature is from 0 ?C (32 ?F) to 45 ?C (113 ?F) when used in locations from 1,400 m to 4,200 m (4,593 ft to 13,780 ft) above sea level. When operational mode is set to Eco or Long Life 1/2/3, operating temperature is from 0 ?C (32 ?F) to 45 ?C (113 ?F). When used with Smoke Cut Filter, operating temperature is from 0 ?C (32 ?F) to 40 ?C (104 ?F). Projector cannot be used in locations over 2,700 m (8,858 ft) with operational mode set to Eco or Long Life 1/2/3. When used with Smoke Cut Filter, the projector cannot be used in locations over 1,400 m (4,593 ft). Light source brightness may decrease depending on operating temperature. When projector is operating at high temperature, brightness will decrease correspondingly.

4 Please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions when washing the filter with water. Replacement is recommended after filter has been washed and reused twice, or if filter is not sufficiently clean after washing.

5 Refresh-rate varies depending on vertical scanning frequency

6 With Operating Mode set to Long Life 3, in which mode brightness is lowered to 2,300 lm. 24 hours/day x 365 days/year x 10 years = 87,600 hours. Replacement of parts other than the light source may be required in a shorter period. Replacement parts are kept in stock for at least eight years after projector production is discontinued, after which time Panasonic cannot guarantee their availability.

7 PT-RZ12K Series doesn't support audio because it has no speaker or audio output terminal.

8 150 m (492 ft) transmission available only with ET-YFB200G DIGITAL LINK Switcher for signals up to 1080p.

9 Combination of primary/secondary input terminals is fixed. Supported combinations are DVI-D (primary) and HDMI (secondary) terminals, or SDI 1 (primary) and SDI 2 (secondary) terminals. The Backup Input Setting is enabled only when the input signal to the primary and secondary terminals is the same.
