Panasonic launches small form factor 20,000 lumens projector

Suitable for corporate meetings, lecture theatres and hybrid environments, Panasonic has announced what it is calling the world’s smallest, lightest and quietest 20,000 lumens LCD projector.

It features a 22.3kg chassis and quiet operation (36dB), for a balance of high brightness and colour, the PT-MZ20K has a tuned optical engine featuring new 1-in LCD panels. Pure white generator harnesses extra light to improve colour accuracy for presentations.

Two 4K input-signal and CEC Command-compatible HDMI inputs enable On/Off control of the source device or Panasonic’s wireless presentation system, PressIT.

Additional time savings can be obtained with the NFC function, which supports IP set-up without AC power; the smart projector control app with auto-focus via smartphone camera; preactivated upgrade kits for geometry manager oro; and information monitor to display status on standby.

Compatible with a range of optional Panasonic lenses, such as the zero-offset ET-EMU100 Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens, the PT-MZ20K can also be used for digital signage or in museums and entertainment venues.

The reusable air filter and laser light-source are maintenance-free for 20,000 hours. Failover circuitry prevents brightness loss from diode failure, while backup input prevents screen-blanking to provide peace of mind in mission-critical situations.
