The Panasonic PT-DZ21KU retails for over $95,000 and includes a $6,000 short throw projector lens (ET D75LE6). This projector was lightly used in an office event space for 3 years and was not need when we decided to move 3 months ago.
The Panasonic PT-DZ21KU WUXGA 3-Chip DLP Projector for Large Venues
features WUXGA 1920 x 1200 resolution for detailed, sharp images. Incorporating
3-chip DLP technology and four 465W UHM lamps with a combined brightness of
20,000 lumens, the projector delivers clear, bright images. Moreover, you dont
have to worry about replacing the lamps frequently thanks to a replacement
cycle of up to 2,000 hours.To achieve a balance between deep blacks and bright
whites, this projector also features Dynamic Iris, which allows it to deliver a
contrast ratio of 10,000:1. It is compatible with a variety of short-,
long-throw zoom and fixed-throw lenses for rear projection, which enhance its
overall flexibility. 3D compatibility and installation flexibility make this
projector suitable for large venues such as auditoriums, museums, medical
schools, hospitals, in addition to rental and staging applications.
Vibrant images through a very high contrast
ratio of 10000:1 and a rich brightness of are key features of this
high-end projector. The high contrast makes it the best choice for film
projections or applications that require a high colour fidelity.
The native WUXGA resolution of 1920x1200 pixel
at an aspect ratio of 16:10 guarantees the crispest and most detailed images
available in the market today. This resolution is actual Full HD.
The projector works on Texas Instruments' DLP
technology. The light is reflected by thousands of micro-mirrors (one mirror
for each pixel). DLP technology stands for high contrast ratios and great
luminosity, as well as a compact and light design.
The projector has an optical lens shift . This
is a feature of a top quality projector, which allows you to shift the image of
your projection without distortions, and without moving the projector.
The Warping function allows for an undistorted
image display, even on an arched concave screen surface.
Also the Panasonic PT-DZ21K has the Edge
Blending feature making it suitable for multi-screen projections. Edge blending
is used when the required image size can´t be covered by a single projector.
Such images can be divided and displayed with multiple projectors with Edge
The Panasonic PT-DZ21K is designed for
professional long continuous operation in 23/7 or 24/7 mode. Only very few
projectors offer this feature since it requires a very good lamp cooling
system. More information on running times, maintenance intervals, etc., you can
find in the manual or spec sheet of the projector.
With a Dynamic Iris the projector has a much
higher contrast ratio. In dark scenes the iris will reduce the light output,
boosting the contrast to bright scenes automatically.
