Panasonic releases new 4K PT-RQ32K laser projector
Panasonic has released a new 4K 3-chip DLP laser projector at the recent InfoComm AV conference in Las Vegas, USA.

The PT-RQ32K provides up to 27,000 lumens of brightness (31,000 at the centre) from its rock-solid, robust design, and is capable of projecting at a resolution of up to 5,120 x 3,200 pixels. Thanks to its quad-pixel drive technology installation, this projector is primarily designed for large events, such as concerts and installations.

The real motion processor in the new unit is ideal for large-scale projector projects due to its liquid-smooth motion production. This means the new Panasonic projector is capable of reproducing a frame rate of up to 240 Hz, giving a consistent uniformity in brightness across the screen.

The new design also packs in dust resistance, making it fail safe in the vast majority of demanding situations. The new unit's dual-drive laser optical engine also ensures 24/7 operation without the need for maintenance. The efficient cooling system means there is minimal tinkering required even if the projector is in continuous operation.

The need to purchase custom mounting frames is also removed for this projector, as it comes with frame-free stacking or eye-bolt rigging, meaning that it can be installed through a variety of methods. Another couple of great benefits of the frame-free design is that it reduces the overall weight of the projector and allows easy installation.

Hartmut Kulessa, the European projector marketing manager at Panasonic, commented on the new projector: “Panasonic has been particularly strong in producing high brightness projectors over recent years. The RQ32K is a great addition to the line-up and joins two high-brightness laser projectors with 31,000 lumens (centre) in WUXGA (PT-RZ31K) and SXGA+ (PT-RS30K).”
