Panasonic SOLID SHINE Series DLP Projectors

Panasonic PT-RZ370U DLP Projector

Panasonic today introduced the world’s first 1080p lamp-free LED/laser light source projectors with Digital Link Technology offering up to 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free 24/7 operation. The new SOLID SHINE Series 1-chip DLP professional projectors include the PT-RZ370 (pictured above) and PT-RZ470 Series. All models in the Series deliver 3,500 lumens of brightness and provide features that make these projectors ideal for educational institutions, as well as museums, command and control centers, and digital signage applications.

All SOLID SHINE Series projectors are equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, and by combining the optional ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box with its HDMI and other input terminals, transmission of uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 100 meters (328 feet) through a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher is made possible. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making the projectors ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations. The combination of DIGITAL LINK with this lamp-free lighting technology significantly reduces end user installation and maintenance costs.

DIGITAL LINK is an original function added to technology based on the transmission standards used in Crestron’s DigitalMedia 8G+ and Extron’s XTP Systems, as well as others. Signals from the ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box can also be relayed to a non-DIGITAL LINK-ready projector by using another manufacturer’s equipment based on the same technology.

Panasonic PT-RZ470UK DLP Projector

The PT-RZ470/RZ370 Series projectors offer installation flexibility, with a 2x zoom, wide lens shift capability, HDMI/DVI digital inputs and Crestron RoomView compatibility. The PT-RZ470 Series (pictured above) offers additional flexibility with Portrait Mode projection capability, as well as Edge Blending, Color Matching and 3D projection.
