1-Chip DLP™ Projector PT-RZ475

Long-Lasting Reliability and High Picture Quality

SOLID SHINE Series uses the newly developed LED/Laser-combined light source

SOLID SHINE Series projectors provide solid reliability and long-lasting brightness unprecedented by conventional lamp-based projectors.

The Benefits of the LED/Laser-Combined Light Source

The LED/Laser-Combined Light Source Enables Up to 10 Years* of Continuous Operation

This new light source requires no maintenance for up to 10 years.* In many cases, this means no maintenance until your next refresh cycle. Naturally, there are no lamp burnout problems during use, so reliability is further increased. There is also no filter to clean due to carefully engineered sealed optics.

As a consequence, running cost is dramatically lowered because of the savings on lamp costs, maintenance labor and hassle of stocking lamps.

* With LIGHT POWER set to Eco2. Replacement of other parts than the light source may be required in shorter period.

Beautiful Picture Quality for a Long Period of Time with 24/7 Operation

The rate of brightness deterioration in the LED/Laser-combined light source is extremely slow compared to lamp-based projectors. The SOLID SHINE drive uses a built-in sensor to constantly detect the intensity of the light source and correct corresponding changes in white balance. This all helps to maintain excellent picture quality for a long period of time. Contrast is outstanding too, at 20,000:1, and images are reproduced with a wide dynamic range. There is no maintenance required because the PT-RZ475 does not use a lamp or air filter. And it has an efficient cooling system and dust-resistant structure, and uses a DLP™ chip that has a long life. Together, this makes the PT-RZ475 ideal for 24/7 operation.

Slow Deterioration of Brightness + Built-in Sensor to Correct White Balance / Excellent Picture Quality for a Long Period of Time

Heat Pipe Cooling System Maintains Stable Operation up to 45 °C (113 °F)*

Laser cooling is performed by releasing the heat to cooling fins, then cooling with a heat pipe cooling system. This suppresses temperature rises inside the projector and allows stable operation up to an ambient temperature of 45 °C (113 °F).*
The use of this heat-pipe cooling system also achieves quiet operation of 35 dB,** enabling viewers to concentrate on the presentation or on quiet movie scenes.

* The operating temperature range is 0 ºC to 40 ºC (32 ºF to 104 ºF) when used in locations from 1,400 m to 2,700 m (4,593 ft to 8,858 ft) above sea level. If the ambient temperature exceeds 35 °C (95 °F), the light output may be reduced to protect the projector.

Dust-Resistant Structure with an Airtight Optical Block

The area between the LED/Laser to the DLP™ chip and prism is hermetically sealed to form an airtight structure
for the optical block, the heart of the projector. This resists the effects of dust and other particles in the air,
and enables use of the projector in a wide range of environments.

Superior Color Reproduction

The LED/Laser-combined light source has a higher level of color purity than an ordinary lamp, allowing it to achieve color reproduction with wider color space. Colors are more vibrant than those of conventional projectors.

30x Drive* Switching Prevents Color Breaking

In 1-chip DLP™ system projectors with conventional lamp, a color wheel is used for time-division multiplexing in a method
where the human eye combines the result to achieve a full-color palette. In the PT-RZ475, this is done by on/off
switching of the LED/Laser-combined light source. A unique Panasonic power supply circuit provides time-division
multiplexing with ultrafast 30x drive.* The resulting, high-definition images exhibit virtually no color breaking.**

* Picture mode: Dynamic. 10x drive in other picture modes.
The rate for each vertical sync/blanking interval, with R/G/B light source switching set to 1x.

** A condition in which incorrect color expression causes color flickering.

The Daylight View Basic Ensures Clear Images Even in Brightly Lit Rooms

Panasonic’s Daylight View Basic technology achieves sharp, easy-to-see images by clearly reproducing the details in dark image areas, which were previously difficult to see in brightly lit rooms. A built-in sensor measures the ambient light, and the Daylight View Basic function adjusts the halftone color and brightness level according to the surrounding illumination.

DICOM Simulation Mode*

This imaging mode is similar to DICOM part 14, which is a medical imaging standard. It reproduces X-ray images with remarkable clarity.

* This product is not a medical instrument. Do not use it for actual medical diagnosis.

Rec. 709 Mode for HDTV Projection

Optimal color reproduction can be achieved by selecting this mode, compliant with ITU-R Recommendation BT.709,
when images from an HDTV source are projected.
