Features

Compact Form-Factor Streamlines Workflow

PT-RQ25K Series is 40 % smaller and 35 % lighter8 than our 20,000-lm PT-RQ22K with a body size similar to our 10,000-lm 1-Chip DLP™ projectors. Intel® SDM-ready slot integrates your preferred terminals with optional proprietary or third-party9 function boards. Smart Projector Control10 app with NFC function11, Remote Preview Lite, and preactivated upgrade kits for Geo Pro12 simplify installation.

Create an Engaging Visual Experience

Quad Pixel Drive, our original 2-axis pixel-quadrupling technology, creates smooth 4K2 images with vivid 3-Chip DLP™ color and high brightness. A new Dynamic Contrast setting delivers higher white brightness and deep blacks during high-contrast scenes. Gradation Smoother reduces color-banding via remote control, while improved point-based black-level adjustment supports edge-blending over curved screens with pixel-level precision.

Reliable and Maintenance-free for Peace of Mind

Hermetically sealed optical block is cooled by a high-efficiency liquid-cooling system enabling maintenance-free projection for 20,000 hours13.
Multi-Laser Drive Engine prevents brightness loss in the event of diode failure, while Backup Input14 switches to a backup signal if the primary signal is interrupted for peace of mind.

1 Please refer to specifications table for brightness value of individual models. Measurement, measuring conditions, and method of notation all comply with ISO/IEC 21118: 2020 international standards. Value is average of all products when shipped.

2 PT-RQ25K/RQ18K only with Quad Pixel Drive [ON].

3 PT-RQ25K/RQ18K only.

4 Only when optional TY-SB01DL DIGITAL LINK Terminal Board (available from CY2022 3Q) is loaded.

5 PT-RZ24K/RZ17K only.

6 Maximum physical resolution with Quad Pixel Drive [ON].

7 Excluding lenses for the PT-RQ50K projector.

8 Estimated value by cabinet volume and weight (excluding lens) according to Panasonic research.

9 Intel® SDM-specified third-party function boards sold separately. Panasonic cannot guarantee operation of third-party devices.

10 Check device compatibility at the App Store or the Google Play store.

11 Projectors sold in some countries or regions require an ET-NUK10 Upgrade Kit available from PASS to activate NFC function. See NFC Regional Compatibility List for details.

12 Geometry Manager Pro software for Windows® and preactivated upgrade kits require projector registration. Visit PASS to register your projector and download free software.

13 Around this time, light output will have decreased by approximately 50 %. IEC62087: 2008 Broadcast Contents, NORMAL Mode, Dynamic Contrast [3], temperature 35 °C (95 °F), elevation 700 m (2,297 ft) with 0.15 mg/m3 of airborne particulate matter. Panasonic recommends checkup at point of purchase after about 20,000 hours. Light-source lifetime may be reduced depending on environmental conditions. Replacement of parts other than the light source may be required in a shorter period. Estimated maintenance time varies depending on environment.

14 Input signals to primary and backup inputs must be identical.

1 When [PICTURE MODE] is set to [DYNAMIC] and [OPERATING MODE] is set to [NORMAL].

2 Measurement, measuring conditions, and method of notation all comply with ISO/IEC 21118: 2020 international standards.

3 Around this time, light output will have decreased by approximately 50 %. IEC62087: 2008 Broadcast contents, NORMAL Mode, Dynamic Contrast [3], under conditions with 35 °C (95 °F), 700 m
(2,297 ft) above sea level, and 0.15 mg/m3 of particulate matter. Estimated time until light output decreases to 50 % will vary depending on environment.

4 4K signals are converted to WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixels) only for the PT-RZ24K and PT-RZ17K.

5 Average value. May differ depending on the actual unit.

6 When optional AJ-WM50 Series wireless module is attached, operating temperature range becomes 0–40 °C (32–104 °F). The operating environment temperature should be between 0 °C (32 °F) and 40 °C (104 °F) if the projector is used at an altitude between 1,400 m (4,593 ft) and 4,200 m (13,780 ft).
