Panasonic Expands Projector and Lens Lineup With New Models at InfoComm 2014

Panasonic, a provider of professional projector solutions, today announced several new additions to its leading suite of projector products and accessories, including the PT-VZ570 Series projector, the ET-D75LE90 ultra short-throw lens for 3-chip DLP projectors, the PT-EZ580 projector and a new ET-ELW22 short-throw lens for LCD projectors. These latest products, along with a robust sample of Panasonic’s other current projectors, professional displays and digital signage, can be seen at InfoComm 2014 (booth #C5416).

“People around the world rely on Panasonic projectors for both the extraordinary and the quotidian: Our projectors have produced the dazzling lighting effects at the Olympics, but are also found in classrooms around the country,” said Art Rankin, Senior Director AV Technologies, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America.

PT-VZ570 Series Projector

As of June 2014, the PT-VZ570 Series is the world’s first 11-pound or less WUXGA high-brightness portable LCD projector. With a high contrast ratio of 5,000:1 and daylight view technology, the new series is able to create sharp, detailed images in well-lit classrooms and meeting spaces, all while keeping noise level down.

  • Range of models: The series is comprised of six projectors that range from 4,500-5,500 lumens.
  • Low maintenance: The PT-VZ570 Series offers up to 7,000 hours of lamp and filter maintenance-free operation, reducing total cost of ownership for businesses and educational institutions.
  • Flexible installation: The projectors are versatile, working well in both portable and in ceiling-mount applications. Additionally, the vertical lens shift and screen adjustment functions allow users to easily adjust images projected onto flat screens or curved surfaces, in addition to situations that require angled projection.
  • Network Collaboration: The PT-VZ570 Series facilitates collaboration and supports BYOD platforms with wireless projection capabilities for PC and technology based on Miracast™ mobile devices. Certain models in this series of projectors also use DIGITAL LINK based on HDBaseT™ technology that reduces cost and complexity of installation by allowing transmission of HD video, audio and control commands through a single CAT5e cable.

PT-EZ580 Projector and ET-ELW22 Lens

Panasonic is adding to its lineup of high brightness LCD projectors with the PT-EZ580 Series, along with a new optional short throw zoom lens – the ET-ELW22 lens – with a throw ratio of approximately 0.8-1.0:1, facilitates flexible installation in limited spaces. Designed with mid-sized classrooms and corporate boardrooms in mind, the PT-EZ580 operates quietly yet provides a high brightness of 5,000-6,200 lumens.

  • High quality picture: WUXGA resolution and 5,000:1 high contrast ratio give the PT- EZ580 an edge in high crisp picture quality. In addition, Panasonic’s proprietary Daylight View Function, DICOM Simulation mode and P-in-P boost the projector’s performance in classrooms and corporate settings.
  • Eco-Friendly: With a long lamp replacement cycle of up to 4,000 hours and an eco filter that can run up to 17,000 hours, the PT-EZ580 Series provides stable operation for a long time. Additionally, the Intelligent Lamp Control system regulates the amount of power drawn to the lamp depending on the projected image, ultimately decreasing the power consumption of the projector.
  • Ease of use: In addition to containing DIGITAL LINK technology, fine adjustment of the image, such as powered lens shift, zoom, and focus, plus H/V and Corner Keystone Correction, can be done remotely using the projector remote control.

ET-D75LE90 Lens

The ET-D75LE90 is an ultra short throw lens for 3-chip DLP 5K+ lumen projectors. Compatible with projectors such as the flagship 20,000 lumen PT-DZ21K Series, the ET-D75LE90 lens delivers an amazing 0.36:1 throw ratio (in WUXGA models) and enables 200” diagonal image projection at a throw distance of just five feet from the screen. Panasonic drew on proprietary aspheric lens technology that it currently uses in its high-end interchangeable lens camera and professional camcorders to develop this groundbreaking ultra short throw lens.

Ideal for large venues: With its ability to maximize tight spaces yet retain a super-high brightness, the new lens is ideal for a variety of large venues, such as theaters, houses of worship, auditoriums and museums. Furthermore, while the lens enables projection without casting shadows onto the screen or blinding the presenter in front projection, the lens can also foster flexibility through rear-projection.
