Panasonic has launched a new series of LCD laser projectors, with the PT-MZ16K range specifically designed to reduce the AV managers workload in businesses and universitie with simplified set-up, maintenance free operation, and countermeasures which mitigate the impact of technical faults.
The PT-MZ16 series combines up to 16,000 lumens brightness (PT-MZ16K) and WUXGA resolution for high quality projection with silent (38dB in normal mode) and light construction (22kg) making it an ideal solution for lecture theatres and seminar rooms.
In addition, the laser maintenance-free design eliminates the need for continued visits from AV managers. This is guaranteed due to the projectors dustproof construction and Eco filter that extends parts replacement for safe and extended operation for up to 20,000 hours.
A range of countermeasures also reduce the impact of technical faults such as the secondary backup signal input or the monitoring function which informs operators when problems have arisen and displays the specific fault for smooth technical restoration.
System set-up is also simplified with a dual-system LAN which supports DIGITAL LINK allowing transmission of HDMI signals, video audio and control commands for up to 150m. Existing ceiling brackets can also be used alongside Corner Keystone Correction to improve the speed of installation and decrease its cost.
“The market for AV in universities has seen a dramatic increase in recent years, implicating a strain on AV and IT managers which are operating across campuses to maintain technical demand,” said Hartmut Kulessa, European Marketing Manager at Panasonic. “Our new series of LCD laser projectors are designed to mitigate this pressure, by ensuring that the technology seamlessly operates across longer periods of time with simple solutions should any faults occur.”
Announced at Infocomm 2019, the PT-MZ16 series is composed of PT-MZ16K (16,000 lm), PT-MZ13K (13,000 lm) and PT-MZ10K (10,000 lm) and is set to be released in November 2019.
