PANASONIC PT-RZ120BA ( 1Chip DLP / 12,000 lm / WUXGA) All LASER
Superior brightness, color, and contrast delivered in a compact body
With next-generation DLP™ technology delivering high-resolution detail, dual laser modules for high brightness, Quartet Color Harmonizer to reduce energy loss from the light source, and robust heat-resistant phosphor wheel, Panasonic’s 1-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser system produces scintillating images with unfailing reliability.
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.
Superior White Balance and Color Reproduction
Quartet Color Harmonizer wheel mechanism captures a wider color space than comparable projectors, allowing white to be reproduced more realistically on screen. Conventional projectors can’t achieve an accurate white balance, so images can appear with a distracting greenish cast. Not the case with the Panasonic 1-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser projectors.
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 colors to suit on-site conditions.
Perfect for high-ceiling installation
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.
Engineered for Continuous 24/7 Projection
Dual laser drive groups diodes into discrete modules. A redundancy circuit minimizes brightness- and color-uniformity loss should a laser diode fail. Combined with durable phosphor wheels and Eco modes that extend life even further, the PT-RZ120 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 color/brightness degrades very gradually in consistent, linear fashion. As well as reducing maintenance hassle, out-of-the-box picture quality is preserved for longer.
Compact, Lightweight, and Flexible Design
Extracting even higher brightness from a projector that’s the same size as our award-winning PT-RZ970/PT-RZ770 series, the RZ120 is easy to handle and designed to reduce installation labor.
Flexible installation, streamlined setup, and great adaptability
Supports 4K Signal Input
The PT-RZ120/L supports uncompressed 4K video-signal input via HDMI® or DIGITAL LINK terminals. The ability to play Ultra HD video at the projector’s supported native resolution is useful in situations where the same premium video content is intended for playback on multiple 4K and non-4K projectors or displays. It saves operators the hassle of re-encoding source video and allows the PT-RZ120/L to be added to a projector network that includes 4K units, streamlining simultaneous playback of a single 4K video source on all compatible display devices.
Single-Cable DIGITAL LINK Connection
DIGITAL LINK transmits uncompressed 4K (4.2.0) video*1, audio*2, and control commands through a single CAT 5e or higher STP cable for distances of up to 50 m*3. Optional DIGITAL LINK Switcher or Digital Interface Box further simplifies installation, reduces cabling and associated costs, and enhances reliability.
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 main projector to up to 99 sub projectors*2. Alternatively, the data can be cloned to sub projectors via LAN. This feature simplifies and expedites the setup process for multi-unit projection applications.
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.
Multi-screen Support System
Optimally adjusts multiple screens with edge blending, color matching, and digital image enlargement.
Edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.
Corrects color 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 Color Control
Sensors detect color 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.
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.
Screen Adjustment for Specially Shaped Screens
Horizontal, vertical, and corner keystone correction adjusts the image shape for clear visibility when projecting off-axis or from an unusual angle. Curved Screen Correction allows for the projection of natural, distortion-free images onto curved or cylindrical surfaces.
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, color-matching, black-level, stacking, and brightness uniformity calibration.
Simple convenience every day
Quick Start and Quick Off
The laser light-source doesn’t require any time to warm up, so images appear almost instantly with projectors equipped with Quick Start/Quick Off function. There’s also no cool-down period when turning the power off at the mains—the projector can be turned on and off any time as necessary.
Smart Projector Control
Smart Projector Control is a powerful smartphone app that enables remote operation of supported Panasonic projectors. Install Smart Projector Control on your iPhone or Android™ phone or tablet, connect to your compatible Panasonic projectors via Wi-Fi (LAN), and control a variety of functions including lens adjustment, input switching, status monitoring, and more.
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.
