Panasonic boosts laser lineup with new 8,500 lumen projector
Panasonic has complemented its existing 1-Chip DLPTM range of SOLID SHINE laser projectors with the launch of the PT-RZ870, providing 8,500 lumens brightness at up to WUXGA resolution.
Building on the success of the PT-RZ970 10,000 lumen SOLID SHINE projector, Panasonic has launched a new 1-Chip DLPTM laser projector, which sits within the existing housing of the 7,000 lumens PT-RZ770 series.
The PT-RZ870 projector blends crisp and vivid imaging with bright, dual-laser-module and dual-phosphor-wheel SOLID SHINE Laser drives. It is capable of maintenance-free operation for up to 20,000 hours thanks to air-tight and dust-resistant optical units and cooling systems negating the need for air filters.
“The key to the superior image quality in these projectors is the quartet colour harmoniser - a unique colour-wheel system enhanced by dual heat-resistant phosphor wheels that work in harmony to maximise colour accuracy while reducing energy loss from the light sources,” explains Thomas Vertommen, European Product Manager at Panasonic. “We are calling the projectors a wolf in sheep’s clothing. AV professionals are going to be blown away by the accurate colours and outstanding brightness that we’ve packed in to such compact housings.”
Digitally modulated 10,000:1 dynamic contrast controls light output frame-by-frame, according to image requirements, while a multi-projector sync function enables control of dynamic contrast and shutter functions across a network of projectors, synchronising from a master projector.
The PT-RZ870 is geared towards pro installations with 3G-SDI joining HDMI®, DVI-D, 5BNC, D-Sub, and RS232C connections as well as DIGITAL LINK compatibility.
Designed to integrate into existing control systems, it is compatible with HDBaseT™, Art-Net, Crestron Connect™, and PJLink™ protocols; and share Panasonic’s family of interchangeable lenses for 1-Chip DLP™ models.
The RZ870 is available from July 2018.

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.
