Panasonic's projectors have come top of their category at the CRN 2011 Tech Innovator Awards.

The company's PT-DZ570 Series projectors came top in the Display-Projection category, thanks to their reliability and flexibility.

Panasonic's proprietary Vivid Color Control technology and Lamp Modulation Drive System in a one-chip DLPTM projector allow the systems to produce bright and vivid colours with the help of the 4,500 lumens of brightness from the projector lamp.

In addition, the Daylight ViewTM Premium feature means that the gadgets can measure the surrounding illumination with a built-in ambient light sensor and correct the images in real-time.

Sheila O'Neil, vice-president of channel sales at Panasonic, commented: “These awards are a testament to our dedication to providing our channel partners and end-users with customised, innovative, reliable solutions to meet a variety of professional applications and environments.”

The projectors have the added benefit of a new cooling system that permits them to be used in ambient temperatures of up to 45 degrees Celsius. Combined with the dust-resistant design of the device, this helps lower maintenance costs and reduce downtime.

Even once lamp replacement is required, there is no need to remove the whole projector from its mount as there is a convenient location near the back of the gadget that allows the lamp to be removed separately.
