Panasonic Projector: 1-Chip DLP Projector PT-REQ12 Series Introduction

Dramatic Visuals Take Production to New Heights

Rich Color Enhancer for Vivid, Accurate Colors

Rich Color Enhancer is an original color optimization technology with two selectable modes. Dynamic Mode balances brightness and color for clear image visibility in bright environments. Standard Mode optimizes color reproduction by expanding red-channel output, leading to more naturally vibrant red expression. This is critical for the accurate reproduction of artwork and other color-rich content.

Gradation Smoother to Reduce Color Banding

Gradation Smoother reduces banding in gradients of shaded color that can become evident in images that lack enough color bit-depth. Use the projector remote to select from three levels of image correction depending on how much banding is present, or disable the function when it’s not needed. Gradation Smoother is a lifesaver when banding is apparent in the projection, and there’s no time to re-edit the content.

Evolved Dynamic Contrast

In addition to a higher 25,000:11 contrast ratio, Evolved Dynamic Contrast gains new scene analysis circuitry that more accurately recognizes light and dark areas of the image. The difference between black, white, and contrasting colors stands out more dramatically than ever before. It minimizes dimming when projecting contrast-rich content and makes black deeper and whites brighter. Each video frame is analyzed in real-time, and light output is continuously adjusted to meet the precise contrast requirements of each scene.

Detail Clarity Processor 4 Improves Image Clarity and Sharpness

Detail Clarity Processor 4 analyzes video signal frequency bands for each scene, extracting distribution information of ultra-high, high, mid, and low-frequency components. Panasonic’s unique image quality correction circuitry then applies optimal processing enhancement to each area of the screen. Building on the capabilities of Detail Clarity Processor 3 available on previous Panasonic 1-Chip DLP™ projectors, Detail Clarity Processor 4 significantly improves the sense of clarity, making fine details seem crisp, sharp, and lifelike.

Adjust Black Levels on Curved Screens

Achieving uniform black levels inside blended areas on curved screens has always been difficult. This is because the screen's curvature distorts the width of the black borders that define the adjustment area. Panasonic answers the problem with flexible black-level adjustment to suit arbitrary screen shapes. You can use up to 17 control points to reshape black borders so they fit the screen symmetrically without distortion. Black levels can be set precisely within a half-pixel margin, so blends are indiscernible even when viewing the screen at close range.

Smooth Playback of 2K/240 Hz1 Content

REQ12 Series can play 2K/240 Hz1 video with an input-to-output latency of just 6 ms2, smoothly reproducing fast-moving objects and action sequences with minimal blur. High-speed 2K/240 Hz1 content can be displayed over multiple screens with edge-blending enabled, making REQ12 Series ideal for sharing gameplay action with audiences at eSports events or for any application where fluid motion and fast response are important. REQ12 Series also supports Panasonic’s optional ET-SWR103 Real-Time Tracking Projection-Mapping System. This ready-to-use Software Development Kit (SDK) works with infrared cameras to enable image projection onto fast-moving objects at 2K/240 Hz1, enabling the seamless combination of digital and analog worlds in your interactive XR attraction.

1 The display frame rate corresponds to the input signal frame rate.
2 Value is approximate. May vary depending on the input signal, peripheral devices, and other conditions.
3 Optional ET-SWR10 is used in conjunction with third-party devices (sold separately). Compatibility with third-party devices cannot be guaranteed. Other limitations apply. For more information, please visit the ET-SWR10 webpage.

Supports Widescreen Input Signals

Single-chip DLP™ projectors are a popular choice for bringing on-site and remote teams together in hybrid conferencing spaces. The latest video-conferencing software can output a 21:9 signal to a REQ12 Series projector so that the faces of remote participants appear along the bottom of the screen at eye level with those seated in the room. This improves communication fluency among members of the group. In addition, with more games, films, and other immersive content produced with a 21:9 aspect ratio, it makes sense to invest in a projector that can deliver a cinematic experience.

Effortless Workflow, Improved Expandability

1 Proprietary and third-party Intel® SDM-ready function boards sold separately. A list of third-party function boards tested for compatibility with the PT-REQ12 Series will be announced. Panasonic cannot guarantee the operation of third-party devices. The transmission method to the slot must be by HDMI™ signal.

Import and Save Your Custom Test Patterns

In addition to 10 built-in test patterns, you can now import and save up to three custom test patterns to the projector. You can save your preferred test patterns or use your client’s content to calibrate the projector before the video source is connected. Access compatible BMP or PNG image files saved to USB memory via the Test Pattern menu, where they can be saved, renamed, or deleted using the projector remote control.

Note: Supports PNG (1/8/16/24/32/48/64-bit, non-transparent, alpha blending disabled) and BMP (1/8/24-bit) formats with a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2400 dots.

1 Available free from the App Store or the Google Play store. Check device and OS compatibility before downloading and installing the app on your device.
2 Requires optional AJ-WM50 Series Wireless Module (sold separately). Product availability may vary by country or region.
3 Some devices do not support the projector autofocus function.
4 When projecting a 300-inch image. The maximum distance is 3 m (10 ft) for a 100-inch image.

1 Visit PASS to register your projector and download free Geometry Manager Pro software for Windows® (upgrade kits included). Visit the Panasonic Geometry Manager Functions webpage for more information.

2 Compatible cameras comprise Nikon D5200/D5300/D5500/D5600/D7500. Use of the Auto Screen Adjustment function with these cameras requires installation of the Auto Screen Adjustment Plug-in (a free camera driver available from PASS). Use of the Auto Screen Adjustment function with D7500 requires Geometry Manager Pro Ver. 6.1.10 or later and Auto Screen Adjustment Plug-in Ver. 5.1.10 or later.

Note: The displayed values are based on the results of angle sensor detection and may differ from the actual angle representing the posture of this projector. The displayed values are for reference only, and accuracy is not guaranteed.

New Cabinet Design for Reliable Operation

1 The Dust Protected performance of this unit is not guaranteed to be free from damage or failure under all conditions (environment with conductive dust, etc.). Please use an enclosure in environments with smoke containing oil, salt, and moisture.

2 Around this time, the light output will have decreased by approximately 50 %. IEC62087: 2008 Broadcast Contents, NORMAL Mode, Dynamic Contrast [3], temperature 35 °C (95 °F), elevation 700 m (2,297 ft) with 0.15 mg/m3 of airborne particulate matter. Panasonic recommends a checkup at the point of purchase after about 20,000 hours. Light-source lifetime may be reduced depending on the environmental conditions. Replacement of parts other than the light source may be required in a shorter period. Estimated maintenance time varies depending on the environment.
