• An astounding 20,000 lm of brightness and rich features from an extraordinarily compact body.
• A maximum 2,000-hour lamp replacement cycle and a low power consumption of 2,300 W supports the total cost of ownership (TCO).
• Active 3D projection capability.
• Optional upgrade kit (ET-UK20) featuring Geometry Manager Pro is available.
• Portrait mode capability (requires the optional ET-LAD510P or ET-LAD510PF lamp units and updating the projector's firmware to MAIN Ver. 2.00 or later).
The PT-DS20KE 3-chip DLP™ projector features breathtakingly beautiful images, reliable operation and a host of creative capabilities to meet the projection needs of highly critical professionals.
Panasonic’s unique quad-lamp system, with its new high-power UHM lamps, has helped to make the body extremely compact while providing an astounding 20,000 lm of brightness. Image quality is further enhanced by the Dynamic Iris which uses a scene-linking aperture mechanism to achieve a remarkable 10,000:1* contrast without lowering its high brightness. This helps to reproduce deeper, richer blacks, and provides images with more detailed textures. The PT-DS20KE also benefits from a unique Detail Clarity Processor to optimise the sharpness of each image, based on the frequency components of the extracted image information. The resulting images have more natural, life-like expression.
*Full on/off, with dynamic iris set to “3”.
The PT-DS20KE is compatible with both passive and active 3D projection systems. It combines with either a separate, external 100/120/144 Hz drive with IR emitter and active shutter glasses, or an active filter and passive glasses, for viewing 3D images.
The PT-DS20KE projector lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO) because it has a lamp replacement cycle of up to 2,000 hours*. Plus the environmentally friendly design also includes a low power consumption of 2,300 W. What’s more, this projector features a four lamp system to ensure that the projector keeps working even if a lamp should fail. The Lamp Relay mode also operates the lamps alternately to enable 24/7 projection. Quad, triple, dual and single lamp modes can be used. For easier maintenance, you can replace the lamp from the rear. This makes it easy to replace a lamp while the projector is still in the mounting bracket or dual stacked.
*The usage environment affects the lamp replacement cycle.
The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift function can be easily adjusted with the remote control. The unit can also be rotated 360° vertically* to accommodate various installation conditions and the lens-centered design contributes to easy installation. The PT-DS20KE can project large, multi-screen images without any additional equipment, with the ability to edge-blend up to 100 units (10 x 10) at a time. A geometric adjustment function also means this projector is suitable for unusually shaped screens. This function adjusts the image for projection onto spherical, cylindrical and other specially shaped screens. You can make the adjustment easily using only the remote control, with no external equipment needed.
*A special fixture must be attached to the lamp case when the projector is placed at an angle within ±30° (upward/downward) of the vertical.
