Bright, Vibrant Large-Screen Images
Full 10-Bit Image Processing System
The use of a full 10-bit image processing system provides smooth tonal expression. For example, skin tones appear natural and true to life
Excellent Colours with Pure Colour Control
It is inherently difficult for LCD projectors to attain both high brightness and superb colour reproduction. For this reason, in addition to the three conventional LCD panels that control the light intensity for the red, blue and green primary colours, the PTEX16K/EX12K also features a Pure Colour Control function that independently controls the light intensity of yellow colouring. This provides rich overall colour expression while maintaining brightness.
High Reliability for Long-Time Use
The Multi-Lamp Optical System Enables Stable, Extended Operation
Even if one lamp goes out during use, the other lamps continue, so projection is not interrupted. Lamp Relay mode also allows long-time, continuous operation.
Highly Durable Optical Engine Ensures Excellent Long-Time Image Quality
The LCD panels and polarizers inside the LCD projector’s optical block tend to degrade over time. Their degradation adversely affects image quality. Inorganic materials are used for the LCD panels, and for the polarizers that are prone to degradation, to resist time-related changes in the optical block, therefore achieving a replacement cycle of up to 10,000 hours.
Excellent System Expandability for Versatile Installation
The Horizontal/Vertical Lens Shift Function and a Variety of Lenses
Both zooming and focusing can be done by remote control. The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift function assures convenience and versatility during installation. You can also choose from a wide variety of lenses, from short or long focus zoom lenses to a fixed focus lens for rear projection. This makes it possible to install the projector in a variety of locations.
The projector can be rotated 360° vertically for flexible installation. This allows projection from directly above or below, for exciting visual possibilities in art galleries, theatres and showrooms.
Corner Keystone Correction Enables Angled Projection
All you need to do is designate four points as the corners of the projected image, and this function automatically carries out horizontal and vertical keystone correction.
Multi-Screen Support System Seamlessly Connects Multiple Screens
The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts multiple screens:
The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.
This function corrects for slight variations in the colour reproduction range of individual projectors.
Versatile Interfaces and Illuminated Terminals and Control Panel
The wide-ranging terminals include 2 sets of RGB inputs*5, an HDMI input, and a DVI-D input. Mounting the optional Interface Board ET-MD16SD1 also accommodates HD/SD-SDI signal input. The terminal connection area is LED illuminated, and a backlight is provided for the control panel buttons, ensuring smooth and easy operation in the dark.
Mechanical Shutter for a Total Screen Blackout
The Mechanical Shutter lets you mechanically block the light to completely blackout the screen, and prevents light leakage from the lens. When closing the shutter, the projection image gradually fades out, then gradually fades in when opening, which brings more attractive stage effects.
Easy Remote Control and Observation
A 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 when a lamp needs replacement, and indicate 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.
Top-Panel Lamp Replacement Simplifies Maintenance
The lamp can be reached through the top panel for easy replacement. This eliminates the need to detach the projector from its mounting bracket in ceiling-mounted applications and greatly simplifies maintenance.
Direct Power Off
The cooling fan continues to operate even when the main power switch is turned off after projection is finished. This also allows the power to be turned off by directly switching off the room’s main breaker for systems, such as ceiling mounted systems, where the main power switch cannot be reached.
A Remote Control ID
Projector identification system for remote control allocation of up to 64 projectors allows simultaneous or individual control when multiple projectors are used.
