Panasonic introduces world’s lightest 4K laser projector

Panasonic introduces world’s lightest 4K laser projector

First previewed at ISE 2015, the 10,000 lumens PT-RQ13K has a Quad Pixel Drive that produces detailed, film-like, 4K+ images.

The optical axis of the projector is shifted both horizontally and vertically at a high frame rate of up to 240Hz, to create four different pixels from a single pixel – effectively quadrupling the pixel density of the image.

A new generation of detail clarity processors analyses the requirement for extra pixels and optimise the output for fluid, detailed, high-contrast images.

Hartmut Kulessa, European projector product marketing manager at Panasonic, said: “Panasonic has traditionally been very popular with the rental and staging market because of the build quality and compact nature of its projectors. The PT-RQ13K’s cabinet is about half the size of some competitor 4K resolution products, it is capable of 360 degree orientation and is compatible with our existing three-chip lenses, so it’s sure to appeal to rental and staging professionals.”

The projector also includes a fail-safe dual-drive laser optical engine which ensures a 20,000 hour light-source life and a laser light-source engine which allows 24/7 operation.

A new liquid-cooling system reduces operating noise and maximises the laser light source performance. These features create a platform that opens up new possibilities for the digital signage sector, such as permanent 3D mapping shows.
