Panasonic Announces New Series of 1-Chip DLP Laser Projectors

panasonicPanasonic announced its new Series of 1-Chip DLP laser projectors in the form of the PT-RDQ10 Series is designed for entertainment, rental and corporate installs. It comes in three different models, ranging from 8,000 to 10,000 lumens. Panasonic says the optional ET-DLE020 Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens with zero offset adds versatility by enabling large-scale images to be projected, free from shadows, even in the tightest spaces.

The Series achieves 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution using Smooth Pixel Drive, a one-axis pixel-shifting technology to produce images and an updated Rich Color Enhancer boosts color reproduction.

In addition to HDMI and HDBaseT-based DIGITAL LINK terminals, the projectors can be equipped with optional SLOT NX interface boards, such as 12G-SDI or DisplayPort. Preactivated Geometry Manager Pro upgrade kits enable sophisticated masking functions and automatic multiscreen calibration, streamlining edge-blending and projection-mapping set-up processes. Remote Preview Lite allows content to be checked remotely via PC, while Smart Projector Control app with NFC function supports setting adjustments without projecting the OSD menu.

The Panasonic PT-RDQ10 Series is set for release in October 2021.
