Bracknell, UK. 17th November 2021 – Panasonic today announced its latest series of LCD projectors to meet the emerging needs of education and business for collaboration and clear and vivid images. The PT-VMZ71 Series, with four WUXGA resolution models ranging from 5200-7000lm and high 3,000,000:1 contrast, is ideal for well-lit classrooms and hybrid learning environments, as well as new workspaces and meetings rooms designed for easy collaboration. The Series, available from February 2022, will replace the current PT-VMZ60 Series with improved brightness and functionality while retaining the same lightweight and compact body – making the top of the range PT-VMZ71 projector the lightest in its class at just 7.2kg (15.87lbs).
With a trend for more frequent and smaller meetings rooms and collaboration spaces, the Series is designed for flexible installation. The Series has V/H Lens-Shift, and V/H and Corner Keystone Correction, a new 6-Point screen correction functionality to help make better use of space in classrooms, offices, and for digital signage. In addition, the new Digital Zoom Extender is a helpful feature to reduce the need to move existing on-ceiling projector mounts when replacing legacy projectors. If the mount position exceeds optical zoom range it can extend the throw-distance of the projector.
Designed for smooth and effective communication, the Series supports 4K input signals, has a flexible 1.6x optical zoom, HDMI terminals compatible with CEC command signals for easy use with a single remote controller for all compatible AV equipment, and a wide range of collaboration options, including a wireless module and powered USB to easily share a variety of media to the big screen.
To reduce running costs and enhance reliability, the PT-VMZ71 Series features Panasonic’s SOLID SHINE Laser light-source and Eco Filter, which do not require replacement for 20,000 hours. Power consumption in NORMAL Mode is also reduced by around 15% compared to certain models in the previous series.

How has visual attraction design changed since Expo 2010 Shanghai, and what trends are emerging ahead of Expo 2025 Osaka? Chad Kunimoto investigates.
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.
