Features

Streamlined AC 100–120 V Installation

Most 3-Chip DLP™ projectors require AC 200–240 V to operate at full brightness, limiting installation opportunities at houses of worship, banquet halls, and exhibition spaces without high-voltage power. PT-RZ16K delivers a full 16,000 lm*1 on AC 100–120 V. There’s no need to rewire the venue or install other specialized infrastructure. Smart Projector Control app*3, Free Grid, optional Geo Pro upgrade kits*4, and wide selection of optional lenses covering throw-ratios between 0.364:1 and 13.8:1 make installation easy almost anywhere.

Superior 3-Chip DLP™ Color Accuracy

With DLP™ chips reproducing R/G/B independently and stable brightness from dual laser-phosphor drives, colors are deep yet accurate with high uniformity for multi-screen images enhanced with synchronized dynamic contrast. The PT-RZ16K successfully emulates BT.2020 and supports lifelike HDR reproduction. Real Motion Processor can boost native 60 fps footage to 120 fps*5 via dual SDI or DVI-D/HDMI® simultaneous input for smooth and realistic motion rendering.

High Reliability for Interruption-free Projection

Hermetically sealed optical block is cooled by a heat-pipe-based system featuring a one-way airflow path. The design eliminates need of an air filter and contributes to 20,000-hour*6 maintenance-free projection. For mission-critical situations, backup input*7 maintains image display if the signal is interrupted by immediately switching to a backup signal without screen-blanking. Multi Monitoring & Control Software lets administrators manage AV assets remotely from a laptop with Early Warning functions*8 adding off-site monitoring from a tablet via VPN.

*1 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 Average value of all shipped products measured at center of screen in Normal Mode.

*3 Available free for iOS and Android™ devices. Check compatibility at the App Store or Google Play.

*4 Purchase a license key to activate optional ET-UK20 and ET-CUK10 upgrade kits for free Geometry Manager Pro for Windows® at the PASS website.

*5 Refresh-rate varies depending on vertical scanning frequency.

*6 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.

*7 Combination of primary and secondary input terminals is fixed. Input signals to primary and secondary inputs must be identical.

*8 Early Warning functions (free 90-day trial) are bundled with Multi Monitoring & Control Software for Windows. Purchase an optional license at PASS to continue usage after the trial period expires.
