Panasonic To Release PT-VMZ71 Series of LCD Projectors To Replace PT-VMZ60 Series

Panasonic LCD Projectors for education and business collabPanasonic announced its latest series of LCD projectors to meet the emerging needs of education and business for collaboration and clear and vivid images. The PT-VMZ71 Series offers four WUXGA resolution models ranging from 5200-7000 lumens and offers 3,000,000:1 contrast. Panasonic says the series is ideal for well-lit classrooms, hybrid learning environments, new workspaces and meetings rooms. The series will be available in February 2022 and will replace the current PT-VMZ60 Series with improved brightness and functionality while retaining the same lightweight and compact body.

The PT-VMZ71 Series has V/H Lens-Shift and V/H and Corner Keystone Correction, a new six-point screen correction functionality to help make better use of space in classrooms, offices and for digital signage. In addition, the new Digital Zoom Extender is a feature designed to reduce the need to move existing on-ceiling projector mounts when replacing legacy projectors. If the mount position exceeds the optical zoom range, it can extend the throw distance of the projector.

The Series supports 4K input signals, has a 1.6x optical zoom, HDMI inputs compatible with CEC command signals and a wireless module and powered USB. It features Panasonic’s SOLID SHINE Laser light source and Eco Filter, which do not require replacement for 20,000 hours. Power consumption in NORMAL Mode is also reduced by around 15% compared to certain models in the previous series.
