Panasonic Shows New RQ7 Series 1-Chip DLP Projector
Panasonic Connect unveiled the RQ7 Series 1-Chip DLP Projector positioned between the FRQ60 Series (6,000lm) and the REQ12 Series (12,000lm), the RQ7 Series (7,500lm) but still aimed for mapping in galleries, museums and Location-Based Entertainment (LBE) attractions.
The company says the new projector RQ7/RQ6 is native 4K and uses a 0.65-inch (16:9) DLP chip and Panasonic’s Quad Pixel Drive technology. It can project 240Hz/1080p content with minimal motion blur and latency of 8ms or less and works with the company’s optional ET-SWR10 Real-time Tracking Projection-Mapping System to fuse digital content and analog motion within interactive attractions.
Panasonic says the RQ7 Series offers stable and eco-friendly operation. Its optical engine and laser light source module achieve high dust-protection performance, conforming to the IP5X Dust Protected (IEC 60529) standard, while the refined cooling system eliminates the need for a filter, reducing waste and supporting maintenance-free operation for 20,000 hours. Multi-Laser Drive Engine limits brightness loss in the unlikely event of diode failure, while the Backup Input can switch to a backup signal without screen-blanking. An ECO Mode reduces energy consumption and significantly extends operating life.
