Bracknell, UK 10th January 2022 – To meet increasing demand for ultra-fine detail resolution in the corporate and education markets, Panasonic has added Quad Pixel Drive to its proven 1-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser projection technology to create the 5,200 lumen PT-FRQ50 projector. Amazing, entertaining effects can also be achieved by projecting onto quickly moving objects with pin-point accuracy when used together with the ET-SWR10 Real-Time Tracking Software Development Kit. The projector, which delivers smooth and richly detailed 4K (3840 x 2160) images and supports 240Hz/1080p frame rates with minimal input-to-output latency of under 8ms, is available this month.
The Panasonic PT-FRQ50 projector is designed for when details really matter. Quad Pixel Drive, Panasonic’s original pixel-quadrupling technology, produces extraordinary 4K images that retain natural sharpness and clarity. The high-speed 240Hz processing and narrow DMD aperture ratio creates an impressive sense of realism with the finest details and textures resolved in smooth, grid-less images. Accurate colours for faithful content reproduction is produced using Panasonic’s Rich Colour Enhancer technology.
The versatile 2.0x zoom lens brings large image sizes to confined spaces with flexible throw-distances. Combined with a wide V/H Lens Shift (V: +71%, -48%, H: +34%, -27%), it provides more freedom to adjust projector location and image position. Preactivated upgrade kits for Geometry Manager Pro enable automatic calibration of multiple screens simultaneously via camera, and an expanded range of software-based geometric adjustment and sophisticated masking capabilities.
The highly reliable and low-maintenance projector offers up to 20,000-hour maintenance-free projection, while Multi Monitoring & Control Software streamline maintenance and optional Early Warning functions can prevent unexpected downtime.
More models will be added to the series later in the year. For more information, visit: https://eu.connect.panasonic.com/gb/en/products/pt-frq50-series/pt-frq50
 From May 2022 onwards.

Mention 3D and many of us will immediately think of the pioneering 3D movies where frighteners like the shark Jaws jumped out of the cinema screen to shock the audience. These initial experiences were fun at the time but the surprise of the repetitive effect quickly grew old and was tiring on the eyes. However, 3D has not faded away, far from it. In fact, the use of 3D technology has continued to develop with more powerful media servers and resolutions continuing to improve the experience. Use of the latest 3D techniques in blockbuster movies, such as Avatar 2, look set to revive 3D at the cinema but the other major focus for modern 3D is in the area of entertainment and theme parks.
