The MZ16 series is Panasonic’s quietest and most powerful LCD projector range for learning and business

Designed for simplified set-up and maintenance-free operation, reducing the AV manager’s workload

This flexible and cost-efficient SOLID SHINETM laser projector offers up to 16,000 lumens brightness (PT-MZ16K) and WUXGA resolution for high quality projection with silent operation (38dB in normal mode) and light construction (22kg). It accepts a 4K/60p input signal, which is converted to the projector’s resolution (1920 x 1200).

Brightest 3LCD SOLID SHINETM Laser Projector able to accept 4K/60p input signal

Using Panasonic’s 3LCD SOLID SHINETM technology, the MZ16 range delivers long-lasting brightness. The conventional mercury-based lamp and colour wheel are replaced by LCD and laser diodes to create the images. Separate colours are combined in the viewer’s mind to create a full image. These projectors can accept 4K/60p input from DIGITAL LINK and HDMI which is converted to 1920 x 1200 resolution for a long-lasting, clear viewing experience.

Compatible with Panasonic Geo Manager Pro software

The MZ16 projector range is compatible with Panasonic’s free Geometry Manager Pro software, which massively cuts set up time for projectors and significantly reduces installation work. You can also export and import the settings of adjustment data between units, significantly reducing set up time in situations where multiple projectors are being used. Optional upgrade kits can be purchased to enable geometric adjustment for 3D mapping (ET-CUK20) and for auto-screen adjustment (ET-UK10), enabling you to set up multiple projectors simultaneously, to save time and expense.

Redundant laser engine and signal input for improved reliability

The projector’s triple drive engine enables continuous operation. If a laser bank fails unexpectedly, the MZ16 will continue projecting with two-thirds brightness. You can also switch from main input to secondary signal input in the case of a cable emergency. If a signal input fails, the projector will automatically switch to any selected input sources (HDMI, DVI-D, SDI, RGB or DIGITAL LINK) to enable projection to continue uninterrupted.
