Deep Imaging Power
Boosted Picture Quality with Up to 5,500 lm and 16,000:1 Contrast
WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixel) resolution native to the PT-VZ585N/VZ580/VZ470 brings crisp Full HD to meeting spaces and classrooms for immersive viewing. With brightness of up to 5,500 lm*1 and a class-leading 16,000:1 contrast ratio*2, your audience is treated to vivid colours, inky blacks, pure highlights, and clearly legible text reproduction even in bright conditions.
(*1 For PT-VW545N/VW540/VX615N/VX615. PT-VZ585N/VZ580 features 5,000 lm and PT-VZ470 features 4,400 lm of brightness. *2 Excluding PT-VZ470. PT-VZ470 features 10,000:1 contrast ratio.)
Efficient Low-Maintenance Design
Less maintenance is not only good for your budget, but also the environment. Air filter replacement cycle is at a class-leading 7,000 hours, and the unit can be washed and reused twice*1 to minimise waste. Lamp life is also pushed out to 7,000 hours in ECO2 mode*2, meaning part refreshment can be performed together with filter maintenance to reduce downtime.
(*1 Filter replacement cycle is calculated based on time when projector's built-in sensor detects clogging and powers projector down. Please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions when washing the filter with water. Replacement is recommended after filter has been washed and reused twice, or if filter is not sufficiently clean after washing. Filter replacement cycle is a guideline and may be reduced depending on environmental conditions. PT-VZ470's filter cannot be washed with water. *2 Maximum value with Lamp Mode set to ECO2. 5,000 hours in Normal Mode and 6,000 hours in ECO1 Mode (7,000 hours in ECO Mode, 5,000 hours in Normal Mode for PT-VZ470). Lamp replacement cycle is a guideline and may be reduced depending on environmental conditions.)
Daylight View Basic
Panasonic technology assures sharp and comfortably viewed images even with the blinds open by enhancing fine details (particularly in dark areas of the image) that are normally difficult to see in bright rooms. A built-in sensor measures ambient light while Daylight View Basic adjusts halftone color and brightness to suit ambient illumination*.
(* With Daylight View Basic set to AUTO mode.)
Technologies combine to keep noise levels down to just 29 dB*, so the sound of the cooling fan is less distracting. This helps to keep attention focused on the presentation and quiet video scenes.
(* With Lamp Mode set to ECO2. 37 dB in Normal and 35 dB in ECO1 Mode. Operating noise for PT-VZ470 is 29 dB (ECO Mode) and 37 dB (Normal Mode).)

Quick Lamp and Filter Replacement
For convenience, the filter can be replaced via the side and the lamp from the top of the projector. There’s no need to remove the unit from its ceiling mount for periodic maintenance.
