1-Chip DLP™ Projectors PT-RZ470/PT-RW430

Excellent TCO and Flexible Installation

A Dramatic Reduction of TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)

SOLID SHINE Series projectors have swept away the weak points of conventional lamp-based projectors, providing superior Total Cost of Ownership and value.
Maintenance-Free

The new LED/Laser-combined light source in the SOLID SHINE Series projectors provides approximately 20,000 hours* of operation with no lamp or filter replacement needed. This dramatically lowers maintenance costs and labor.

High Reliability

A highly durable system has been achieved with an originally designed, efficient cooling system for the new light source, and a dust-proof structure. You get stable operation and solid reliability for a long period of time.

Heat-pipe cooling system
Flexible Installation

System capabilities such as a 2x zoom lens, an exceptionally wide lens shift range, and 360-degree installation support highly flexible installation. DIGITAL LINK also enables long-distance digital transmission with a single cable.

*A guideline for light source replacement. The maintenance-free period may be shortened due to environmental conditions.

Versatile First-Time and Replacement Installations

2x Zoom Lens

The 2x optical zoom lens provides a wide throw range.
For a 120-inch-diagonal wide screen, the projection distance extends from approximately 3.9 m (12.8 ft) to approximately 7.8 m (25.7 ft).*

* For the PT-RZ470. PT-RW430 supports projection distance from 4.0 to 8.0 meters (13.1 to 26.2 feet) for a 120-inch screen (16:10 aspect ratio).

Horizontal / Vertical Lens Shift

The wide shift range accommodates various room sizes and shapes.
When lights or ventilation holes are located in the ceiling mounting site, you can simply relocate the projector to avoid them.

Lens-Centered Design

A lens-centered, symmetrical design provides ease of installation, eliminating the need for any special considerations when planning the installation site.

Equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, the PT-RZ470/RW430 allows transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 100 meters (328 feet) through a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations.

Optional ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box for Easy Setup

By combining the optional ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box, with its HDMI and other input terminals, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals can be transmitted up to 100 m (328 feet) over a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher. It allows projector connection with only one cable, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations.
Also, because control signals can be simultaneously transmitted, the ET-YFB100G input signal can easily be switched with the wireless remote control that is included with the projector. The projector can be controlled by either serial or LAN communication.

DIGITAL LINK technology allows simple new 1 to 1 system.

Advantages:・A cost effective approach to cabling and layout・Digital transmission provides less signal degradation・Allows long distance transmission with a single cable

Also Supports Other Manufacturers’ Peripheral Equipment

DIGITAL LINK is an original function added to HDBaseT™ technology. Signals from the ET-YFB100G can also be relayed to a non-DIGITAL LINK-ready projector by using another manufacturer’s equipment based on the same technology.*

* Input selection and other ET-YFB100G operations can be performed only when connecting to a DIGITAL LINK compatible projector.

DIGITAL LINK Introduction

Abundant Connection Terminals, Including HDMI

Interfaces include HDMI and DVI-I inputs. The serial terminal (RS-232C) has an Emulate function that lets you continue using existing control systems when replacing previous Panasonic models. It is also possible to output audio during STANDBY MODE.* This is convenient when connecting an external audio system through the projector.** A closed caption decoder is built in.

* Requires menu selection.
** Audio monitoring requires external speakers and an audio amplifier.

Note: HDMI, the HDMI Logo, and High-Definition Multimedia Interface are trademarks or registered trademarks of HDMI Licensing LLC in the United States and other countries.

Easy Remote Monitoring and Control over a LAN

Web browser on a computer connected through a wired LAN system lets you remotely operate projectors and check their status. An e-mail messaging function can also notify you the overall projector status.

In addition, Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software is available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic projectors from a single PC.

The wired LAN terminal is compatible with PJLink™ (class1), an open protocol that is used by many manufacturers, to enable integrated control of systems that contain different brands of projectors.

Crestron Connected™ and AMX Device Discovery

The LAN terminal allows a computer connected to the network to use Crestron Connected™ application software to manage and control system devices.
Besides, the AMX Device Discovery technology is built in the
PT-RZ470/RW430.
