Panasonic has expanded its range of projectors, with its new line up including the first 6,000 lumen single-chip DLP laser projector in the world.
Panasonic’s Business System’s PT-RZ670 video projector has been displayed at the beginning of the firm’s latest roadshow, alongside a collection of other new models and devices included in the range.
Tipped to be ready to go out to customers in the September of this year, the RZ670 projector comprises a laser diode light source, which promises to offer 20,000 hours of functionality.
The light source also ensures a high level of brightness – 6,000 lumens – as well as offering a high degree of flexibility in terms of mounting the device thanks to the liquid cooling system meaning it can be mounted in portrait mode without getting hot.
Product marketing manager for projectors and flat panel displays, Chris Maw, told IT Wire that the functionality also meant faster start-ups and shutdowns as there was no need for cool-down periods.
He went on to highlight the device’s built-in geometric adjustment, which meant that images could be projected onto curved or irregular surfaces.
Mr Maw said: "The second generation of Solid Shine projectors has raised the bar of projection reliability and flexibility.”
The new range includes the PT-RZ670, which offers 1920 x 1200 resolution; the PT-RW630 which offers 1280 x 800 resolution; and the PT-DZ16K, which offers 1920 x 1080 resolution.
