Original Imaging Engines Boost Colour and Detail
Rich Colour Harmonizer for Naturally Vibrant Images
Rich Colour Harmonizer exceeds the limits of conventional 1-Chip DLP image quality with a new colour-filter design and proprietary processing that expands the ratio of red light used to create the image. Rich Colour Harmonizer achieves a more accurate white balance for natural skin-tone expression, smooth gradation, and intensely vivid colours that burst from the screen.
Clearer, Sharper Images with Smooth Pixel Drive
Smooth Pixel Drive is a new 1-axis pixel-wobbling system that produces detailed images beyond the projector’s panel resolution. It combines an original image processing engine optimized for single-axis pixel-wobbling with a thinner DMD aperture ratio, boosting perceived resolution while smoothing jaggies, sharpening text, and clarifying detail, resolving impressively with 4K input signals*. Your audience is treated to clear, comfortable, and easy-to-see images even from a distance.
* 4K input signals are resized to 2715 x 1697 pixels upon projection. (With Smooth Pixel Drive: ON)

Excellent Reliability with Dust-Resistant Lasers
Filterless Projector Structure with Airtight Optical Block
A refined heat-sink-based cooling system and dust-resistant projector structure open the door to hermetically sealed optics. Now impervious to dust, air filters and associated maintenance are a thing of the past. This original filterless design contributes to 20,000 hours* of maintenance-free operation, useful when the projector is difficult to access.
* At this time, light output will have decreased by approximately 50 %. IEC62087: 2008 Broadcast Contents, NORMAL Mode, [Dynamic Contrast] set to , temperature 30 °C (86 °F), elevation 700 m (2,297 ft) with 0.15 mg/m3 of particulate matter. Value will vary depending on environment and usage conditions. Parts other than the light source may require replacement in a shorter period. Panasonic recommends checkup at point of purchase after about 20,000 hours.
Engineered for Continuous 24/7 Projection
Dual laser drive groups diodes into discrete modules. A redundancy circuit minimizes brightness- and colour-uniformity loss should a laser diode fail.
Combined with durable phosphor wheels and Eco modes that extend life even further, the PT-RCQ10/RCQ80 can operate 24/7 for long periods. Potential applications include surveillance, monitoring, signage, and public display.
SOLID SHINE Laser Maintains Picture Quality for Longer
Thanks to two long-lasting solid-state laser modules, there are no lamps to replace, and image colour/brightness degrades very gradually in consistent, linear fashion. As well as reducing maintenance hassle, out-of-the-box picture quality is preserved for longer.
Backup Input Setting Assures Picture Display
Projectors switch instantaneously to a backup input signal should the primary input signal be disrupted*, assuring image display is maintained at all times in venues such as control rooms and adding insurance at events where projection must not be interrupted.
(* Combination of primary/secondary input terminals is fixed. Switching to secondary input (or primary input) occurs automatically when the input signal for primary input (or secondary input) is disrupted. The Backup Input Setting is enabled only when the input signal to primary and secondary terminals is the same.)
Multi Monitoring & Control Software and Early Warning Software
Manage up to 2,048 devices via network with convenient system map visualization and auto-search of unregistered devices. The free software is available with Early Warning functions (automatic free 90-day trial available*). These enable real-time monitoring, abnormality detection, and more.
(* Free 90-day trial available upon installation of Multi Monitoring & Control Software Ver. 2.0 or later. Multi Monitoring & Control Software Ver. 2.0 or later is required for Early Warning functions. Purchase a license and activate at PASS when trial period expires to continue using Early Warning functions.)
Dynamic Light Control for High Contrast
Dynamic Light Control directly modulates laser output to achieve high contrast with less power consumption. Digitally controlled frame-by-frame scene-linking modulation ensures highly precise adjustment of light output, while accurate contrast is delivered even when bright and dark scenes frequently interchange.
Detail Clarity Processor 3
This unique Panasonic circuitry optimizes the sharpness of each image based on information gathered from four frequency bands of the video signal. The resulting images are expressed with natural, convincing realism.
System Daylight View 3
Panasonic’s premium System Daylight View 3 stops pictures washing out in bright light and enhances impact in mapping and multi-projector applications. It uses sensor information to adjust sharpness, manipulate gamma curves, and correct colours to suit on-site conditions.
Single-Cable DIGITAL LINK Connection
DIGITAL LINK transmits uncompressed video, audio*1, and control commands through a single CAT 5e or higher STP cable for distances of up to 150 m (492 ft)*2. Optional DIGITAL LINK Switcher or Digital Interface Box further simplifies installation, reduces cabling and associated costs, and enhances reliability.
(*1 Audio transmission depending on model’s audio capability.
*2 150 m (492 ft) transmission available only with ET-YFB200G DIGITAL LINK Switcher for signals up to 1080p.)
Separate LAN/DIGITAL LINK Terminals
Separate terminals for LAN and DIGITAL LINK enhance versatility. Installers can assign 100Base-TX- and 10BaseT-compatible control signals via LAN terminal, freeing up DIGITAL LINK for video.
Data-cloning function allows various settings and configuration data*1 to be copied from a master projector to up to 99 slave projectors*2. Alternatively, the data can be cloned to slave projectors via LAN. This feature simplifies and expedites the setup process for multi-unit projection applications.
(*1 Excludes passwords, projector name/ID, and network settings.
*2 Data-cloning function supported on identical projectors only.)
Contrast Sync and Shutter Sync Function
Contrast Sync function, designed for multi-screen applications, allows dynamic contrast control to be synchronized for consistent picture quality across screens. Shutter Sync, meanwhile, synchronizes shutter on/off timing.
* Includes fade-in and fade-out effects. Projector shutter functions can be set to operate individually if desired.
Multi-Screen Support System
Optimally adjusts multiple screens with edge blending, colour matching, and digital image enlargement.
Edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.
Corrects colour reproduction variations of each projector via PC control software.
Digital Image Enlarging
Digital zoom up to 10X (H/V)*. Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended to create large multi-screen images.
(* While input resolution will not change, maintaining image quality is not possible for images enlarged horizontally and vertically via the digital zoom function.)
Multi-Unit Brightness and Colour Control
Sensors detect colour and brightness apparent on screen. Projectors automatically calibrate for a uniform multi-screen image, adding a layer of convenience and cost saving for long-term events.
Geometry Manager Pro Software and Upgrade Kits
Download free Geometry Manager Pro software to expand geometric and multi-screen setup and calibration capabilities via PC. The suite includes two upgrade kits that can be optionally unlocked with paid key codes. ET-UK20 adds uniformity correction and extensive creative masking capabilities. ET-CUK10 features Auto Screen Adjustment which enables simultaneous setup (including curved-screen correction) of multiple projectors for multi-screen applications using a compatible camera. This streamlines edge-blending, colour-matching, black-level, stacking, and brightness uniformity calibration.
