The short-throw design is a perfect fit in small rooms, projecting a large 100-inch image without shadows from a distance of 93 cm2 (3.05 ft). With up to 4,000 lm3 of laser brightness, 3,000,000:14 Dynamic Contrast, and WUXGA5 resolution, TMZ400 Series delivers clear, sharp, vivid pictures with lights on and blinds open.
Easy for Everyone to Use
TMZ400 Series combines TV-like convenience with easy portability. Its body width and depth are not much larger than a laptop computer, and it weighs just 4.9 kg (10.8 lbs), light enough to take wherever you need to go, and easy to install on the ceiling. Setup is simple: just set on a desktop, connect the source, and start presenting.
Start Work Instantly
Start your class or meeting instantly without distracting delays that lose the group’s attention. Unlike lamp-based projectors, which take time to start up, TMZ400 Series projects your content about one second1 after powering on from standby thanks to its SOLID SHINE Laser light source. It also features a Direct Off function, so you can turn the projector off any time via the room breaker.
Quiet Operation Keeps People Focused
TMZ400 Series includes a Quiet Mode that reduces operating noise to as little as 24 dB1—the same apparent loudness as rustling leaves. The projector fits unobtrusively into your environment and minimizes distractions even when the group is seated close by the projector. Quiet projection helps keep attention focused on the presentation, whether your class or colleagues are in the room or participating remotely.
Digital Zoom Extender Adds Digital Image Shift Function
Digital Zoom Extender evolves with a new Digital Image Shift function. It provides a convenient workaround when it’s not possible to install the projector at the center of the screen due to light fittings or air-conditioning vents on the ceiling, or in cases where the ceiling is too high. You can digitally shift the image 10% up or down and 10% left or right so it fits on your screen using the projector remote control.
Digital Zoom Extender function allows you to keep the same mount position as your old projector even if it’s too far from the screen, saving construction work. It extends throw-distance past the range of optical zoom so the image is projected at the desired size on your screen. TMZ400 Series uses the same mount and attachment bracket as the conventional lamp-based PT-TW381R Series, so you if you’re updating, you can bolt the new projector straight in and use Digital Zoom Extender to fit the image on screen.
Screen Adjustment with Automatic Vertical Keystone Correction
TMZ400 Series features simple screen adjustment operable by remote control. It includes Automatic Vertical Keystone Correction that fixes trapezoidal distortion when the projector is tilted up or down; 4-Corner and Horizontal/Vertical Keystone Correction to correct the image when projecting at an angle; 6-Point Correction that removes distortion when projecting an image into the corner of a room; and Curved Screen Correction to remove barrel or pincushion distortion when projecting onto curved surfaces.
Note: 6-Point Screen Adjustment available on PT-TMZ400 only.
Efficient Reliability with Minimal Maintenance
Designed for Stress-free Life
Excellent picture quality is just one benefit of laser projection. Both the light source and ECO Filter don’t need to be replaced until about 20,000 hours1. Comparable lamp projectors would need between one and four lamp changes plus filter maintenance if operated for the same amount of time. You also don’t need to worry about disposing of expired lamps, and the ECO Filter can be washed and reused, saving waste. It’s easy to see how laser projection reduces cost and maintenance hassle. And thanks to the light-source’s controlled brightness ramp and consistently uniform color reproduction, images stay clear and vivid for much longer.
Eco-friendly Design Saves You and the Environment
Make the change to eco-friendly Panasonic projection and reduce impact on the environment in line with your organization’s SDGs. TMZ400 Series uses light 1.5 times1 more efficiently than conventional lamp-based models, increasing brightness by about 20%2 while reducing energy consumption by 20%3. Maximum power consumption in NORMAL Mode is just 240 W. These energy savings really add up, especially if you’re operating more than one projector. You can improve energy efficiency even further by setting the projector to ECO or QUIET modes.

WUXGA1 (1920 x 1200) LCD panels improve text definition and clarify details for a more engaging presentation. With higher panel resolution than Full HD (1920 x 1080) projectors, the PT-TMZ400 can reproduce images at their original aspect ratio and reduce the need to scroll when projecting webpages and spreadsheets thanks to the extra image height.
1 PT-TMZ400: WUXGA (1920 x 1200), PT-TMW380: WXGA (1280 x 800), PT-TMX380: XGA (1024 x 768).
Vivid Image Quality in Well-Lit Rooms
Classroom and office projectors need to be powerful enough to cut through bright ambient light, or the picture looks dull and washed out. Despite its compact body and light 4.9 kg (10.8 lbs) weight, TMZ400 Series packs up to 4,000 lm1 of laser brightness for sharp, well-saturated pictures with the room lights on and blinds open.
Dynamic Contrast Adds Depth and Realism
Dynamic Contrast analyzes the video signal frame-by-frame and digitally adjusts light output according to the contrast requirements of each scene. It features scene-linking technology for greater realism when dark and light scenes frequently interchange. As well as accurate reproduction of images that contain a mix of dark and bright shades, Dynamic Contrast is more energy-efficient than other technologies. The high 3,000,000:11 contrast ratio delivers impressive detail definition in shadows and improves text legibility for more comfortable viewing.
Optimized Images to Suit Your Space
Daylight View Basic optimizes image quality according to the amount of light in the room. A sensor measures ambient brightness and adjusts brightness, dynamic contrast, and color for clearest results in any conditions.
CEC Command-Compatible1 HDMI® Makes Life Easy
Both of the projector’s HDMI inputs are compatible with CEC commands1 for your convenience. The projector will automatically switch on, select an input, play your content, and switch off when it detects these commands from a compatible source device such as a Blu-ray™ player, media streaming dongle, or Panasonic’s optional Wireless Presentation System PressIT2. Get your content playing smoothly and easily using just one remote control.
Supports 4K Input Signals1 for Easy System Integration
TMZ400 Series accepts 4K input signals1 via HDMI. That’s a big help if you plan to distribute 4K content from a media server to various display endpoints around your school or office that have different screen resolutions. You don’t need to manually reencode your video content or use an external video converter, reducing system and workflow complexity.

Just scan the QR code shown in the on-screen display menu using your smartphone’s camera, and your device connects to the projector automatically over wireless LAN, no SSID or passwords required.

Power Devices via USB Terminal
The projector includes a USB terminal supporting 5 V/2 A DC power supply for the optional Wireless Presentation PressIT1 receiver or a compatible media streaming device2. Reduce cable clutter and avoid the need for an extra AC outlet or outlet adapter on the ceiling.
Auto Input-Switching Function
TMZ400 Series makes everyday operation more convenient. Auto Input-Signal Search function listens for incoming video signals and switches to the correct input automatically without the user having to perform this operation using the projector’s remote control.
Plug-and-Play Projection with Memory Viewer
