Although most of our 3-Chip DLP TM projectors require AC 200 V to 240 V for maximum brightness, all can be operated under AC 100 V to 120 V. The amount of brightness restriction depends on the model.
*RZ16K, RQ13K, RZ12K, and RS11K can run on full brightness at AC 100 V to 120 V.

Brightness restriction when operating at 100 V to 120 V

RQ50K 1/5 of full brightness
RQ35K series 1/3 of full brightness
RQ22K/RZ21K 1/2 of full brightness

The type of supplied power cord varies depending on the country or region of use. The shape of usable outlets differs depending on the power supply. Using the projector at AC 100 V to 120 V may decrease the brightness.

By using our Data Cloning function. Various settings and adjustment values can be copied onto multiple projectors via LAN or USB memory.

Lenses can be thermally affected by light from the light source, making the focus unstable just after switching on the power. We recommend approximately 30 minutes to one hour of aging depending on the lens model.
For ET-D3LEU100/D3LEW200, we recommend adjusting the focus ONE HOUR after initial image display.
For all other lenses, we recommend adjusting the focus once 30 MINUTES have elapsed.

Our 3-Chip DLP TM models have lens mounter adjustment screws in three locations in the event that the entire screen surface is not uniform even after the lens has been focused.

・The illustrations in the steps are an example when attaching the Zoom Lens (Model No.: ET‑D3LEW10).

1) Adjust the focus at the center of projected image.
 ・For the steps to adjust the focus, refer to “Adjusting the focus, zoom, and lens shift”.

2) Loosen the lock screw and turn the periphery focus adjustment ring by hand to adjust the focus in the periphery of the screen.

There are vairous ways to check the input signal.

The Remote Preview function can be used on the PT-RQ50K, RQ35K, and RZ34K projectors.
Remote preview can be accessed via MMCS or a web browser.
See https://panasonic.net/cns/projector/products/mmcs/ for more detials.

You can also check the waveform monitor.
On the projector menu, go to [DISPLAY OPTION], select [WAVEFORM MONITOR] and switch it ON.
If output levels from the source fluctuate, the original black and white levels of the image cannot be reproduced correctly. The projector can display these waveforms on screen, where they can be adjusted automatically or manually.

The adjusted lens position (vertical, horizontal, focus, and zoom) can be saved and loaded.
On the projector menu, go to [PROJECTOR SETUP], select [LENS], then [LENS MEMORY].

On the projector menu go to [ADVANCED MENU], then [FRAME DELAY]. You can adjust the frame delay in 0.01 m increments.

You can sync the CONTRAST and SHUTTER functions of multiple projectors for a more seamless image.
Go to [PROJECTOR SETUP], then [MULTI PROJECTOR SYNC] for each projector.

Connecting example
Connect all the projectors to be linked in a loop by daisy chain connection when using the contrast synchronization function/shutter synchronization function. The number of linked projectors is limited to the maximum of 64 projectors.

Yes. Our Auto Screen Adjustment Upgrade Kit (ET-CUK10) is not compatible with blending red laser and non-red laser models, but changing the color setting on red-laser models allows them to be adjusted to match models without red laser. However, they may look different on camera.

Multi Monitoring and Control Software can help monitor and control devices, supporting stable operation.

Our newest feature includes the REMOTE PREVIEW
