Panasonic has unveiled a new upgrade to its flagship large-venue projector range with the launch of the quad-lamp, 3-chip, 20,000 lumens PT-DZ21K2.
The projector is the newest addition to the DZ21K2 Evo Series, which made its debut at the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.
Hartmut Kulessa, European projector marketing manager at Panasonic, said: “With Panasonic’s powerful new Real Motion Processor to enable 120Hz driving speed, Panasonic has refined the Evo series’ optical engine to enhance focus performance, resulting in improved image clarity, all from an extremely compact body.”
The PT-DZ21K2 also offers a new Digital Link single LAN cable connection, two 3G-SDI inputs and a newly developed Detail Clarity Processor picture enhancement system.
Panasonic has also extended the lamp life expectancy from 2,000 hours to 3,000 hours thanks to a redesigned lamp modulation system. The use of reusable, long-life eco filters has also made the new series significantly more efficient and cost-effective.
As Panasonic's flagship projectors, the DZ21K series has been used in some of the world's greatest events, exhibitions and productions, including the London 2012 Olympic Games Ceremony and 2015 London Marathon Press Centre. Coldplay even used 62 of the projectors to create a visual concept for the launch of the album, Ghost Stories.
