Panasonic presents new projectors for immersive experiences

Panasonic Connect Europe announced two new projectors laser with 1 DLP chip technology designed to increase the offer and offer further solutions for the world of new immersive applications for the location-based entertainment sector. The projector PT-REQ15 it is the first 4K 1-Chip DLP projector from Panasonic to offer a brightness of 15,000 lm. His counterpart PT-REZ15 offers 15000 lm with WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution.

These new models combine high light output with a very compact design and top-level image quality. Thanks to these features, they represent a new choice for integrators looking for high power and image quality, for installations in environments with limited space, facilitating positioning and decreasing installation costs. REQ15 and REZ15 will be available starting Q2 FY2024.

Spectacular graphics on a large scale of the new Panasonic projectors

REQ15 uses Quad Pixel Drive, Panasonic’s innovative 2-axis pixel shift technology, to reproduce authentic 4K images that are deep, smooth and detailed. Alternatively, the projector is capable of projecting 2K/240Hz content, even on multiple edge-blending screens, with detailed and sharp images thanks to a latency of less than 6 ms.

The 2k/240Hz technology it also allows the management of the Panasonic Real-Time Tracking Projection-Mapping ET-SWR10 system, an innovative infrared tracking technology, characterized by a very high response speed and capable of merging digital contents and the movements of the performers on stage inside of Extended Reality (XR) attractions or theatrical performances.

The projector also integrates the Rich Colour Enhancer, a technology that increases the color depth of red, ensuring more vivid and accurate red tones. The function is also new “Evolved Dynamic Contrast”, the latest dynamic contrast update that optimizes the playback of each individual frame. Its new scene analysis circuit better recognizes the light and dark areas of the image maximizing the contrast for a perfect visual impact in all conditions.

As a demonstration of the detailed work done by the designers, the new projectors also offer a new way of adjusting the black levels, based on a high number of points. This function, essential for obtaining maximum uniformity in multi-projections, in 360° immersive spaces and especially when projecting on curved screens, allows you to adjust the black level independently of the geometric corrections due to the installation.

With the ability to unlink black level adjustment from geometric adjustment, black level settings can be applied to the entire image, even to overlapping areas outside the image display area, for an image fully uniform multi-screen.


Simple workflow and extensive functionality of the new Panasonic projectors

A slot compatible with the Intel SDM format allows you to mount various types of proprietary or third-party cards. Using dedicated cards, users can adapt, scale and expand projector connectivity to match the video interface used for signal distribution, up to AVoIP standard.

The new high-contrast optics are equipped, in the wide-angle models, with central focusing and motorized peripheral for easy adjustment via remote control. Preparing the projectors for installation is also simplified thanks to the NFC function which allows you to configure or initialize the projectors without having to switch them on or connect them to the mains, directly via smartphone. The upgrade kits of the software Geometry Manager Pro (ET-CUK10 and ET-UK20) are pre-activated, expand functionality and automate edge-blending setups via camera.

Maximum reliability with maintenance-free operation

To ensure continuous operation in critical applications while avoiding interruptions that impact the guest experience and reduce operating costs, both products feature an optical engine and laser light source module that is compliant with the standard IP5X Dust Protected (IEC 60529), a solution that eliminates the need for an air filter, allowing 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation.

The refined liquid cooling system ensures continuous operation in dusty environments. The Multi-Laser Drive Engine features unique failover circuitry that limits loss of brightness in the unlikely event of a single laser diode failure, while the backup input function instantly switches the input to a backup signal very quickly and unnoticeably in the event that there is a problem with the primary signal.
