Panasonic has announced the launch of a new high frame rate laser projector.

The company revealed the new PT-RZ12KU laser projector at the 2015 National Association of Broadcasters Show, which is currently taking place in Las Vegas.

Panasonic claims that the PT-RZ12KU will become the world’s lightest 3-Chip DLP laser projector, with the device targeted at those needing rental and staging, sports production and digital signage solutions.

The manufacturer also announced the launch of another new device, the PT-RS11KU, which is also a 12,000 lm laser projector with SXGA+ (1400 x 1050) resolution. Both will be available in the summer.

Art Rankin, vice-president of AV Technologies at Panasonic System Communications Company of North America, said: "Both viewers and broadcasters demand life-like imagery from their AV products.

"These new projectors provide another outstanding option for a laser-free projector that is taking clarity to the next level."

The top benefits of the new PT-RZ12KU projector include that the device allows for vertical, horizontal and tilting 360-degree projection, which is all enabled by a laser light source.

With the projector also boasting multi-screen projection and geometric adjustment, Panasonic claims that the PT-RZ12KU projector's contrast ratio of 20,000:1 "eclipses the competition".

The manufacturer added that the device is "ideal for simulation, monitoring, and specialist education roles, thanks to the high levels of detail".
