PT-EX16K/EX12K

LCD Projectors PT-EX16K/PT-EX12K

High Reliability for Long-Time Use

The Multi-Lamp Optical System Enables Stable, Extended Operation

Even if one lamp goes out during use, the other lamps continue, so projection is not interrupted.
Lamp Relay mode also allows long-time, continuous operation.

Brightness and Lamp Replacement Cycle Guideline

• PT-EX16K
Lamp Brightness (lumens) Maximum lamp replacement cycle (hours)*
Four lamps (Normal) 16,000 2,000
Four lamps (Eco1 or Eco2) 12,320 3,000
Two lamps (Normal) 8,000 4,000
Two lamps (Eco1 or Eco2) 6,160 6,000
• PT-EX12K
Lamp Brightness (lumens) Maximum lamp replacement cycle (hours)*
Two lamps (Normal) 13,000 2,000
Two lamps (Eco1 or Eco2) 10,010 3,000
One lamp (Normal) 6,500 4,000
One lamp (Eco1 or Eco2) 5,005 6,000

* The values above are maximum values when they are used in cycles of being turned on for 2 hours and off for 0.25 hours.
When the lamps are turned on and off more frequently, the lamp replacement cycle is shortened. The usage environment affects the lamp replacement cycle.

Highly Durable Optical Engine Ensures Excellent Long-Time Image Quality

The LCD panels and polarizers inside the LCD projector's optical block tend to degrade over time. Their degradation adversely affects image quality. Inorganic materials are used for the LCD panels, and for the polarizers that are prone to degradation, to resist time-related changes in the optical block, therefore achieving a replacement cycle of up to 10,000 hours.

Adverse Dust Effects Prevented by a Long-Lasting Air Filter (PT-EX16K)

The use of a large pleated air filter has made it possible to achieve a replacement cycle of up to 5,000 hours.*
This greatly reduces maintenance hassles. The filter is also replaced from the front, so there is no need to detach
the projector from its bracket in ceiling-mounted applications.

* With the lamp power set to Normal. The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.

The Long-Lasting Eco Filter with User-Friendly Maintenance (PT-EX12K)

The PT-EX12K features the Eco Filter, which efficiently captures dust and requires no replacement for up to 12,000 hours.*1 It consists of Micro Cut Filters*2 that use an ion effect to collect extremely small dust particles. These large-surface, pleated filters have a high dust collecting performance. In addition to its long replacement cycle, the Eco Filter can be washed with water*3 for repeated use, further increasing its ecological performance. The Eco Filter can also be removed through the top panel of the projector, enabling filter replacement on ceiling-mounted projectors without having to detach the projector from its mounting bracket.

*1 With the lamp power set to Normal. The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.
*2 Electrostatic filters.
*3 When washing with water, please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions. Also, we recommend replacing the filter with a new one after it has been washed and reused twice. If the filter is not sufficiently clean after washing, replace it with a new one.

Optional Smoke Cut Filter Provides Protection from Fine Smoke Particles (PT-EX16K)

The projector can be equipped with an optional Smoke Cut Filter ET-SFE16 to prevent the entry of not only dust but also fine smoke particles, such as those used for special effects at events and stage performances.
