Panasonic unveils beyond 4K 21,000 lumens laser projector
Panasonic Business has announced a beyond 4K laser-phosphor addition to its projector lineup aimed at live event staging, exhibitions, rental, and permanent installations.
The PT-RQ22K 3-Chip DLP SOLID SHINE laser projector comes in the same compact dimensions and the same 21,000 centre lumens brightness as the PT-RZ21K series, a WUXGA/SXGA+ projector, but is equipped with 4K+ (5120 x 3200) resolution.
“The PT-RQ22K completes the Panasonic 4K projection line-up, complementing the PT-RQ32K and PT-RQ13K, and meets the demand for a light weight, high-brightness 4K+ projector with film-like image quality, suitable for single or stacked projections,” said Hartmut Kulessa, European marketing manager at Panasonic.
Panasonic has developed state-of-the-art imaging engines, including a Quad Pixel Drive and 240Hz real motion processor. Heat-resistant phosphor wheels and solid-state laser modules serve vivid 4K+ images with industry leading brightness, contrast, and accuracy. The PT-RQ22K also offers BT.2020 emulation and supports premium HDR video content playback.
“We have combined class-leading picture quality and a low total cost of ownership (TCO) by shielding the optical engine with heat-pipe based cooling, eliminating the need for an air filter. The whole projector can operate with no maintenance for very long periods of time, even in dusty environments,” adds Hartmut Kulessa.
Designed for roles where absolute reliability is critical, the PT-RQ22K has a dual light engine, and can switch to a backup video signal instantaneously if a primary source goes down.
The PT-RQ22K has a single-cable 4K DIGITAL LINK connection and is compatible with the newly launched Panasonic 12G-SDI interface board (ET-MDN12G10), as well as the full range of 3-Chip DLP Panasonic lenses.
