The product number for the direct shipments to Europe is PT-DZ16KEJ.
*1 When the STANDBY MODE is set to ECO, network functions such as power on over the LAN will not operate.
Also, only certain commands can be received for external control using the serial terminal.
*2 The usage environment affects the lamp replacement cycle.
*3 Measurement, measuring conditions, and method of notation all comply with ISO 21118 international standards.
*4 Pixel repetition signals only (dot clock: 27.0 MHz).
*5 WUXGA resolution is supported only when the signals are compliant with VESA CVT-RB (Coordinated Video Timing-Reduced Blanking).
*6 Correction range is limited during simultaneous horizontal and vertical correction.
*7 With legs at shortest position.
*8 Average value. May differ depending on the actual unit.
*9 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 altitudes from 1,400 m to 2,700 m (4,593 ft to 8,858 ft) above sea level). When the projector
is used with the ET-SFR510 Smoke Cut Filter, the operating temperature range is 0 °C to 35 °C (32 °F to 95 °F), and the projector cannot be used in places at high altitude.
