“Previously, we needed to do preventative maintenance twice a year.
In the rooms where we have the PT-RZ370s, we no longer have to do that, freeing up time that can be used for more critical tasks.”
Brian Raley (Instructional Services Engineer, Towson University)

One of the nation’s leading public universities offering
the area’s top learning environment
When Towson University opened a new liberal arts building in 2011 – the first new structure in 30 years – the Technology Services team wanted to make sure that their AV investments would pay off for the future.
One key priority they identified was the reduction of projector outages. With classes running continuously for about 10 hours a day, there is little time to do repairs. What’s more, outages are immensely disruptive to classes. So when the team learned about Panasonic’s line of lamp-less projectors, they saw great opportunity to make sure that classes have more continuity through more reliable technology.
Less downtime has a significant impact
for projector-related issues, down further from the low 10.6 % for FY2014.
approximately $12,000 per year in service costs
What’s more, the school tracks issues with technology across the campus: “The number of projector-related issues is negligible.” Raley noted that last year – out of 1,270 total technology problems reported to the Technology Services team – only 2.6 percent were lamp related while 5.0 percent were other projection issues (such as source and sizing).
Excellent picture quality and flexible installation
