Panasonic works from every angle to minimize environmental impact in the product design, production and delivery processes, and in the performance of the product during its life cycle. The PT-RZ470/RW430 projectors reflect the following ecological considerations.

A New Light Source with Long-Lasting Brightness

SOLID SHINE Technology Reduces Running Costs

Long-lasting brightness continues for approximately 20,000 hours. Moreover, the SOLID SHINE Series’ linear brightness drop provides greater brightness over a given time. This helps to lower maintenance requirements by eliminating the need for lamp replacement and reducing running costs.

Maintenance Free for 20,000 Hours

Easy Recycling

Easy Recycling

  • • Mercury free

    The principle of lamp emissionThe principle of LED emission
  • • No halogenated flame retardants are used in the cabinet.
  • • Non-coated cabinet for easy recycling (for the PT-RZ470W/RW430W only).
  • • Lead-free glass is used for the lens.

Low Power Consumption

Low Power Consumption

  • • CO2 emission reduction:
    The new light source reduces power consumption compared to conventional models.
  • • Standby power consumption of only 0.5 W has been achieved (STANDBY MODE: ECO).*
  • • Further power consumption reduction with Eco Save 1/2 Modes.
    - Light source mode is selectable to reduce power consumption.
    -"ECO" button on the remote control for easy setting up of Eco Management functions.
  • • An Auto Off Timer switches the projector to standby mode when no input signal is received
    for a preset time.
  • • Quick On/Off: Less wasted power consumption.
    Wasted power consumption is reduced since the warm-up and cool-down processes are unnecessary.
  • • Low heat dissipation: Less hassle to control the temperature around the projector.

    Conventional lamp projector LED/Laser projector
    A difference of 7.5°C occurs in the room temperature when used for 5 hours.

    * Test room: 8 m x 8 m x 2.5 m = 160 m3. * The test room assumes complete insulation.

    * Calculated when the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 m3 of air by 1°C is defined as 0.288 kcal.

  • * When the STANDBY MODE is set to ECO, network functions such as power on over the LAN will not operate.
  • Also, only certain commands can be received for external control using the serial terminal.

RoHS Compliant

RoHS Compliant

All Panasonic projectors comply with the standards of the RoHS Directive.

What is RoHS?
RoHS is the acronym for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. All applicable products in the EU market after July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance.
What are the restricted materials mandated under RoHS?
The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
Why is RoHS compliance important?
The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills, and are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing and recycling.
