Engineered for Continuous 24/7 Projection

Dual laser drive groups diodes into discrete modules. A redundancy circuit minimizes brightness- and color-uniformity loss should a laser diode fail.
Combined with durable phosphor wheels and Eco modes that extend life even further, the PT-RCQ10/RCQ80 can operate 24/7 for long periods. Potential applications include surveillance, monitoring, signage, and public display.

SOLID SHINE Laser Maintains Picture Quality for Longer

Thanks to two long-lasting solid-state laser modules, there are no lamps to replace, and image color/brightness degrades very gradually in consistent, linear fashion. As well as reducing maintenance hassle, out-of-the-box picture quality is preserved for longer.

Backup Input Setting Assures Picture Display

Projectors switch instantaneously to a backup input signal should the primary input signal be disrupted*, assuring image display is maintained at all times in venues such as control rooms and adding insurance at events where projection must not be interrupted.

Particulate Matter per Cubic Meter in Different Environments

* Combination of primary/secondary input terminals is fixed. Switching to secondary input (or primary input) occurs automatically when the input signal for primary input (or secondary input) is disrupted. The Backup Input Setting is enabled only when the input signal to primary and secondary terminals is the same.
