PT-DX500UThe PT-DX500U offers exceptional image quality with 4,500 lumens, RGB Booster, and picture modes such as DICOM simulation mode for X-ray viewing and Rec.709 mode for high color fidelity. Plus, the projector supports wireless projection with the use of optional Easy Wireless Stick ET-UW100 and ET-WM200U.
The 1-chip DLP™ PT-DZ570 Series projectors allow high-quality images to be projected in a wide range of operating conditions and applications. The PT-DZ57OU provides unsurpassed image quality powered by 4,000 lumens, WUXGA (1920 x 1200) full HD + resolution and RGB Booster for excellent color reproduction. Calibration is made easy with the built in Waveform Monitor.
RGB Booster Significantly Improves Color Reproduction
The RGB Booster achieves high image quality with levels of color reproduction and brightness that make each color stand out. It combines Panasonic's proprietary Vivid Color Control technology with a Lamp Modulation Drive System for a 1-chip DLP™ projector that produces bright and vivid colors.
Vivid Color Control
This unique control technology optimizes the use of the color segment areas of the color wheel. It increases the brightness of each RGB color by minimizing the unallocated portions between the colors, to achieve truly vivid coloring.
Lamp Modulation Drive System
With the advanced lamp modulation technology, the projector is now able to control the lamp intensity for each of the red, green, blue and white segments of the color wheel separately. Because the actual light output is controlled in relation to each color segment, light usage is optimized and color balance is obtained without lowering the brightness. This results in bright, vivid images with increased color fidelity.
A full 4,500/4,000 Lumens of Brightness and Contrast of 2,000:1
The 300-watt AC lamp unit features an efficient light focusing reflector. Using only a single lamp unit, the PT-DX500 achieves 4,500 lumens of brightness, while the PT-DZ570 and PT-DW530 offer 4,000 lumens. All models boast a high contrast ratio of 2,000:1.
Full HD-Ready WUXGA Resolution
In response to the increasing popularity of widescreen image viewing, including Blu-ray content, the PT-DZ570 features native WUXGA resolution for high-definition viewing. This brings you lifelike projection of intricate, highly detailed images.
Detail Clarity Processor 3 Bring Depth and Clarity to Details
The frequency of the video signal is analyzed for each scene, and distribution data is extracted for the ultra high, high, medium and low-range frequencies. This unique Panasonic image correction circuit optimally enhances each area of the screen. High-precision detection is applied from 2-dimensional horizontal/vertical data to produce more natural, lifelike images with high definition.
Daylight View Premium for Better Color Perception*
This function corrects the image quality to project sharp, clear images even in brightly lit rooms. A luminance sensor measures the ambient brightness, and a realtime adjustment function optimizes sharpness and brightness according to the surroundings. This adjustment function also works together with the Detail Clarity Processor 3 to enhance the realism and vividness of projected images. This makes images easier to view and offers high contrast.
* There is no actual change in the rated brightness or contrast ratio.
Waveform Monitor Function
When the output level of the source device fluctuates due to the performance of the device or its cable connections, the original black and white levels of the image content cannot be reproduced correctly. With the PT-DZ570, you can view the waveforms on the screen and adjust the settings either automatically or manually as you prefer.
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. It also allows information to be shared by many viewers on a large screen, such as during conferences or training courses.
* 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.
Advanced Technologies for Excellent Image Quality:
• 3D color management system
• Full 10-bit image processing
• Progressive cinema scan (3:2 pulldown)
• Dynamic sharpness control
• Digital noise reduction
• IP conversion
• AIl scene control
Newly Designed Original Cooling System*
The cooling system is newly designed to optimize the airflow inside the unit. As a result, it offers better cooling efficiency and allows the projector to be used in ambient temperatures up to 45°C (113°F).*
* The operating temperature range is 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F ) when the fan control is set to HIGH Altitude mode ( for over 1,400 m [4,593 ft ] to 2,700 m [8,858 ft ] above sea level ).
Lamp and Lamp Air Filter replacement Cycle of 2,000 Hours*
The new cooling system combines with a dust-resistant design based on a sealed optical block to achieve a lamp and lamp air filter replacement cycle of 2,000 hours.* This greatly reduces maintenance hassles.
* When a lamp mode is set to NORMAL. The lamp replacement cycle is 3,000 hours when the lamp mode is set to ECO. A maximum value when the lamp is used in cycles of being turned on for 2 hours and off for 0.25 hours. When the lamp is turned on and off more frequently, the lamp replacement cycle is shortened.
Easy Lamp Replacement
For easier maintenance, you can replace the lamp from the rear. The lamp is easily replaced even after the projector is installed on the ceiling.
Quiet 29 dB* Operation:
An original cooling system enhances the compact body and enables the projector to operate at a quiet 29 dB.*
* When the lamp mode is set to ECO; 35 dB when the lamp mode is set to Normal. Measurement, measuring conditions and method of notation all comply with ISO 21118 international standards.
Web Browser Control over a Wired LAN
The PT-DZ570 Series can be easily operated remotely over a LAN, because it is done using the computer's Web browser. Furthermore, the projector sends an email message to notify the operator when an error has occurred, or a lamp needs to be replaced.
The LAN terminals support PJLink™ class 1 connection. Control with the same specifications is also possible when used in a multi-projector system with projectors of another brand.
Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software Ver. 2
Panasonic's original freeware "Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software Ver. 2" allows the user to control and monitor multiple projectors at the same time over a wired LAN. When a problem occurs, an alarm message is sent to the monitoring/controlling PC.
H/V Lens Shift and 2x Zoom Lens
In new installations, the horizontal/vertical lens shift lets you accommodate a wide range of room sizes and shapes. And when replacing existing projectors, the 2x zoom greatly enhances your ease of installation and can reduce costs by permitting the use of existing mounting positions and cablings.
Flexible Angle Setting
The unit can be rotated 360° vertically. This means you can install it at any up-and-down angle you wish to accommodate different installation conditions.
Lens Centered Design
A lens-centered, symmetrical design provides ease of installation, eliminating the need for any special considerations when planning the installation site.
Interfaces include a DVI-D and HDMI inputs. The serial terminal (RS-232C) has an Emulate function that lets you continue using existing control systems when replacing a previous Panasonic model. It is also possible to output audio during Standby mode. This is convenient when connecting an external audio system through the projector. Side-by-side Function: The PT-DZ570/DW530 can simultaneously display images from two sources onto a single screen. For example, you can display a PC image on the left and a video image on the right. Taking advantage of the wide-screen projection, this function gives you a host of new application possibilities to explore.
