• 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).
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.
Panasonic&s Dynamic Iris uses a scene-linking aperture mechanism to achieve a remarkable 10,000:1*1 contrast without lowering its high brightness. This helps to reproduce deeper, richer blacks, and provides images with more detailed textures.
This unique Panasonic circuit optimizes the sharpness of each image, based on the super-high-, high-, medium-, and low-frequency components of the extracted image information. The resulting images have more natural, lifelike expression.
This unique Panasonic technology optimizes image quality to improve the color perception of the projected image in bright rooms.
With a brightness of 20,000 lm, it provides highly comfortable viewing even in bright lighting, and allows viewers to concentrate easily on the images.
This imaging mode is similar to DICOM part 14, which is a medical imaging standard. It reproduces X-ray images with remarkable clarity.
The series 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-DZ21 projectors lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) because they have a lamp replacement cycle of up to 2,000 hours*3. Their environmentally friendly design also includes a low power consumption of 2,300 W.
The four-lamp system allows the projector to keep 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.
This new liquid cooling system directly cools the DLP™ chip to improve performance and enable operation up to 45 °C (113 °F)*4. It allows quiet (49 dB) and versatile use while stabilizing performance. It also helps to make the body compact. And the system is hermetically sealed, so you don&t need to replenish the liquid.
The Eco Filter has an electrostatic Micro Cut Filter that collects minute dust particles with an ion effect. It combines with the dust-resistant cabinet to enable long-term use even under harsh conditions. Its maintenance cycle of up to 12,000 hours reduces hassle, and the environmental design lets you wash the filter with water and reuse it.*6
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*7, to accommodate various installation conditions. The lens-centered design contributes to easy installation.
This function automatically corrects the brightness fluctuations that occur over time in the individual projectors of a multi-screen system. Up to eight projectors can be controlled by connecting to each other via a hub, and this can be increased to a maximum of 2,048 projectors by using "Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software Ver. 2.7."
The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts multiple screens: Edge blending, color matching.
The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.
This function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors.
The PT-DZ21 can project large, multi-screen images without any additional equipment. Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time.
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.
The new Geometry Manager Pro software included in the optional upgrade kit ET-UK20 supports Color Matching and Edge Blending for multi-projector setups (max. 32 units). It also allows creative masking using four lines or bitmap data. And its flexible and complex geometric adjustment capability suits a wide variety of screen shapes.
The PT-DZ21 has an array of terminals, including DVI-D, HDMI and two RGB inputs. The PT-DZ21K features a 3D-ready HD/SD-SDI input and 3D sync terminals to connect an emitter for 3D projection.
Panasonic&s original Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software Ver. 2.7 freeware lets you control and monitor multiple projectors at the same time over a wired LAN. If a problem occurs, an alarm message is sent to the monitoring/controlling PC. The terminal connection area is LED illuminated, and a backlight is provided for the control panel buttons, ensuring smooth and easy operation in the dark.

*1 Full on/off, with dynamic iris set to "3".
*2 This product is not a medical instrument. Do not use it for actual medical diagnosis.
*3 The usage environment affects the lamp replacement cycle.
*4 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.
*5 The usage environment affects the filter maintenance cycle.
*6 When washing with water, please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions. Also, we recommend replacing the filter with a new one after it has been washed and reused twice. If the filter is not sufficiently clean after washing, replace it with a new one.
*7 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.
*8 This function cannot be used with some input signals and selected inputs.
