Panasonic PT-RZ370 Series Non-Lamp Projectors use a LED/Laser-combined light source to change the way you work. The ideal solution for educational institutions, Panasonic's first lamp free projectors deliver an exciting new standard in professional reliability.
The LED/Laser-Combined Light Source Enables Approx. 20,000 Hours of Continuous Operation
This new light source requires no maintenance for approximately 20,000 hours.1
In many cases, this means no maintenance until your next refresh cycle. Naturally, there are no lamp burnout problems during use, so reliability is further increased. There is also no filter to clean due to carefully engineered sealed optics.
As a consequence, running cost is dramatically lowered because of the savings on lamp costs, maintenance labor and hassle of stocking lamps.
Ordinary lamps are not well suited to continuous operation. Because the PT-RZ370 does not use a lamp, has an efficient cooling system and uses DLP chip that has a long life, they are capable of 24/7 operation.
Bright, Beautiful Picture Quality for a Long Period of Time
The PT-RZ370 features 3,500 lumens of brightness. The rate of brightness deterioration in the LED/Laser-combined light source is extremely slow compared to lamp-based projectors.
The SOLID SHINE drive uses a built-in sensor to constantly detect the light intensity of the light source and correct corresponding changes in white balance. This all helps to maintain excellent picture quality for a long period of time.
Contrast is outstanding too, at 10,000:1, and images are reproduced with a wide dynamic range. The PT-RZ370 also features a Full-HD (1,920 x 1,080) DLP chip, allowing highly detailed Full-HD images without resizing.
Superior Colour Reproduction
/Laser-combined light source has a higher level of color purity than an ordinary lamp, allowing it to achieve color reproduction with wider color space. Colours are more vibrant than those of conventional projectors.
Rec. 709 Mode for HDTV Projection
Optimal colour reproduction can be achieved by selecting this mode, compliant with ITU-R Recommendation BT.709, when images from an HDTV source are projected.
30x Drive Switching Prevents Colour Breaking
In 1-chip DLP system projectors with conventional lamp, a colour wheel is used for time-division multiplexing in a method where the human eye combines the result to achieve a full-colour palette. In the PT-RZ370, this is done by on/off switching of the LED/Laser-combined light source. A unique Panasonic power supply circuit provides time-division multiplexing with ultrafast 30x drive.2 The resulting, high-definition images exhibit virtually no colour breaking.3
Heat Pipe Cooling System Maintains Stable Operation up to 45 C
Laser cooling is performed by releasing the heat to cooling fins, then cooling with a heat pipe cooling system. This suppresses temperature rises inside the projector and allows stable operation up to an ambient temperature of 45 C.4 The use of this heat-pipe cooling system also achieves quiet operation of 29 dB,5 enabling viewers to concentrate on the presentation or on quiet movie scenes.
A Dramatic Reduction of TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
SOLID SHINE series projectors have swept away the weak points of conventional lamp-based projectors, providing superior Total Cost of Ownership and value.
The new LED/Laser-combined light source in the SOLID SHINE Series projectors provides approximately 20,000 hours of operation with no lamp or filter replacement needed. This dramatically lowers maintenance costs and labor.
A highly durable system has been achieved with an originally designed, efficient cooling system for the new light source, and a dust-proof structure. You get stable operation and solid reliability for a long period of time.
System capabilities such as a 2x zoom lens, an exceptionally wide lens shift range, and 360-degree installation support highly flexible installation. DIGITAL LINK also enables long-distance digital transmission with a single cable.
DIGITAL LINK - The Single Cable Solution
Equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, the PT-RZ370 allows transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 100 metres through a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations
Versatile First-Time and Replacement Installations
2x Zoom Lens
The 2x optical zoom lens provides a wide throw range.
For a 120-inch-diagonal wide screen, the projection distance extends from approximately 3.9 m to approximately 7.8 m.6
A lens-centered, symmetrical design provides ease of installation, eliminating the need for any special considerations when planning the installation site.
Horizontal / Vertical Lens Shift
The wide shift range accommodates various room sizes and shapes. When lights or ventilation holes are located in the ceiling mounting site, you can simply relocate the projector to avoid them.
Flexible 360-Degree Installation
The projectors can be rotated vertically. This means you can install one at any up-and-down angle you want, to accommodate different installation conditions.
Abundant Connection Terminals, Including HDMI
Interfaces include HDMI and DVI-I inputs. The serial terminal (RS-232C) has an Emulate function that lets you continue using existing control systems when replacing previous Panasonic models. It is also possible to output audio during STANDBY MODE. This is convenient when connecting an external audio system through the projector. A closed caption decoder is built in
Crestron RoomView and AMX Device Discovery
The LAN terminal allows a computer connected to the network to use Crestron RoomView application software to manage and control system devices. Besides, The AMX Device Discovery technology is built in the PT-RZ370.
Easy Remote Monitoring and Control over a LAN
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 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.
DICOM Simulation Mode
This imaging mode is similar to DICOM part 14, which is a medical imaging standard. It reproduces X-ray images with remarkable clarity.
