Panasonic Introduces Its Most Sustainable LCD Projector To Date
Higher brightness and improved efficiency alongside recyclable components make the Panasonic MZ882 projector series the sustainable choice.
Wiesbaden, DE. 30th January 2024 – Panasonic Connect Europe today announced its most sustainable projector to date with the introduction of the LCD MZ882 Series at ISE 2024. With brightness up to 8,200lm, the MZ882 Series sets a new benchmark for visual quality in education and workspaces while placing a strong emphasis on sustainability and cost performance.
The MZ882 Series represents a milestone in the company’s effort to reduce the carbon footprint of its products, for the first time including recycled resins (10%) in the main projector unit and featuring recyclable components throughout. The projector, which minimises waste through a reduction in packaging and related accessories, introduces energy-saving innovations while delivering the bright, sharp images in well-lit rooms that customers have come to expect.
"This is another important step in our journey to making all Panasonic’s products as sustainable as possible. By transitioning to this flexible projector, organisations can reduce energy consumption, waste, and carbon footprint in line with their Sustainable Development Goals."
Optimised to Reduce Waste and Carbon Footprint
The Series’ refined optical engine boosts brightness over the existing MZ880 Series with an up to 8.7% increase in lm/W efficiency. The MZ882 Series also introduces an intelligent auto power-on function, starting projection upon signal detection and minimising continuous projector operation during presentations. To limit waste, the ECO Filter can be washed and reused twice, while light source and filter maintenance is recommended at 20,000 hours.
Bright and Sharp Viewing Comfort
With optimally balanced colour and brightness, the MZ882 Series produces sharp, detailed images in well-lit spaces for clear visibility that’s easier on the eyes. Image realism and energy efficiency is further enhanced by Dynamic Contrast delivering a high 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio with scene-linked modulation control to the light source.
Detail Clarity Processor 4 analyses the video signal through each scene for an improved sense of clarity. Daylight View Basic measures the environmental lighting and performs real-time corrections to enhance brightness perception and optimise energy use. For multi-screen applications, the projector supports Shutter Sync and Contrast Sync functions and is compatible with Panasonic’s Geometry Manager Pro software.
Streamlined Workflow and Smooth UX
Quiet 27dB operation reduces distractions and keeps participants focused on the presentation. Widescreen 21:9 aspect ratios are supported to suit immersive conferencing layouts or to display documents side-by-side. A new projector posture detection function minimises installation time and reduces the personnel involved in the installation process, contributing to a more streamlined and resource-friendly workflow. A selection of six optional lenses, including the ELU20 Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens, supports wide-range powered lens shift to adapt the projection to any layout seamlessly.
The MZ882 Series will be available from CY2024 Q2.

I was absorbed in a noteworthy project within the auditorium and press room of one of Spain's major banks. While not touted as a groundbreaking venture, it bore the weight of practical challenges that demanded innovative solutions. The task at hand was to design a projection system for a sizable 10 x 6 curved screen, a standard requirement for corporate presentations and shareholder meetings. The unique twist lay in the bank's request for keynote speakers to stand and move freely on the stage, right next to the screen. It was a notable ask, and the solution we proposed was pragmatic yet transformative – two Ultra-Short-Throw (UST) lenses paired with 20,000 lm lamp-based projectors.
39 new Panasonic projectors: 35 x PT-REZ10LBEJ and 4 x PT-REZ12LBEJ with new feature, built in SDM slots, have been used to project images across an area of nearly 2,000 square meters. This solution eliminates the need for additional wiring and energy consumption.
Europe has always been at the heart of wireless technologies, from Marconi’s very first wireless transmission in 1897. Back then that initial radio transmission transformed the world and wireless connectivity continues to do so today.
European businesses expect to see an average 32% boost in productivity in the three years after implementation of the latest wireless technology.
