Panasonic develops ten-year maintenance-free projector

Panasonic has launched a new short throw laser projector for control room applications, offering up to ten years extended service life.

The PT-RZ575 is set for launch in Autumn 2016 and offers 5,200 lumens of brightness at a 20,000:1 contrast ratio. The projector features a constant brightness mode, offering long term stable performance for mission-critical activity in the typically darkened environment of a control room.

The projector features Panasonic’s unique SOLID SHINE laser technology, giving solid reliability and unprecedented levels of uniform brightness. A dust-resistant case, airtight optical block and filter-less design also enable maintenance-free operation.

“Panasonic’s SOLID SHINE laser range offer five different operational modes giving the ideal blend of brightness and maintenance-free longevity,” said Hartmut Kulessa, Panasonic projector marketing manager. “In darkened environments such as control and surveillance rooms, this is ideal as often full power isn’t necessary. Users can choose up to three lower-brightness, long life modes that extend 24/7, 365-day operation to 87,600 hours. That’s the equivalent of around ten years’ uninterrupted service without the need to replace the light source.”

The RZ575 is engineered for 24/7 continuous projection, offering vibrant colours that do not degrade over time. In addition, it features a durable dual drive laser optical engine that gives the projector two discrete light sources, grouping the laser diodes into modules for uninterrupted projection in the unlikely event a light source fails, ideal for mission-critical applications.

“Panasonic leads the industry in laser projection innovation, offering true maintenance free and filterless projectors designed for intensive usage and providing long lasting brightness for education, museums, exhibitions and digital signage applications,” added Hartmut Kulessa.
