SOLID SHINE Series Projectors provide solid reliability and long lasting brightness,
unprecedented by conventional lamp based Projectors.
Up to 10 Years* of Maintenance Free Operation
No need to replace a Lamp or Air Filter, providing a dramatic reduction in TCO.
* With LIGHT POWER set to Eco2. Replacement of other parts other than the light source, may be required in shorter period.
Long Lasting Picture Quality
Excellent picture quality and brightness are maintained for a long time.
Superb Colour reproduction
Beautiful, vivid colours exceeding the levels of conventional Projectors.
Quick Start, Quick off
The image appears almost instantly upon powering up, and there is no need for cooling after turning the power off.The power can be turned on immediately after being turned off, and it can be turned On/Off as many times as you want.
This new light source requires no maintenance for up to 10 years. * In many cases, this means no maintenance until your next refresh cycle. Naturally, there are no Lamp burnout problems during use, so reliability is further increased. There is also no Filter to clean due to carefully engineered sealed optics.
As a consequence, running cost is dramatically lowered because of the savings on Lamp costs, maintenance labour and the hassle of stocking Lamps.
* With LIGHT POWER set to Eco2. Replacement of other parts other than the light source may be required in shorter period.
The rate of brightness deterioration in the LED / Laser combined light source is extremely slow compared to lamp based Projectors. The SOLID SHINE drive uses a built-in sensor to constantly detect the intensity of the light source and correct corresponding changes in white balance. This all helps to maintain excellent picture quality for a long period of time. Contrast is outstanding too, at 20,000:1 and images are reproduced with a wide dynamic range. There is no maintenance required because the PT-RZ475EA does not use a Lamp or Air Filter and it has an efficient cooling system and dust resistant structure, and uses a DLP™ chip that has a long life. Together, this makes the PT-RZ475EA ideal for 24/7 operation.
Laser cooling is performed by releasing the heat to cooling fins, then cooling with a heat pipe cooling system. This suppresses temperature rises inside the Projector and allows stable operation, up to an ambient temperature of
45 °C (113 °F). *
The use of this heat pipe cooling system also achieves quiet operation of 35 dB, * * enabling viewers to concentrate on the presentation, or on quiet movie scenes.
* The operating temperature range is 0 ºC to 40 ºC (32 ºF to 104 ºF) when used in locations from 1,400 m to 2,700 m (4,593 ft to 8,858 ft) above sea level. If the ambient temperature exceeds 35 °C (95 °F), the light output may be reduced to protect the Projector.
** With LIGHT SOURCE MODE set to NORMAL
The area between the LED / Laser to the DLP™ chip and prism, is hermetically sealed to form an airtight structure for the optical block, the heart of the Projector. This resists the effects of dust and other particles in the air, and enables use of the Projector in a wide range of environments.
The LED / Laser combined light source has a higher level of colour purity than an ordinary Lamp, allowing it to achieve colour reproduction with wider colour space. Colours are more vibrant than those of conventional Projectors.
Panasonic’s Daylight View Basic technology achieves sharp, easy-to-see images by clearly reproducing the details in dark image areas, which were previously difficult to see in brightly lit rooms. A built-in sensor measures the ambient light, and the Daylight View Basic function adjusts the halftone colour and brightness level according to the surrounding illumination
This imaging mode is similar to DICOM Part 14, which is a medical imaging standard. It reproduces X-ray images with remarkable clarity.
* This product is not a medical instrument. Do not use it for actual medical diagnosis
Optimal colour reproduction can be achieved by selecting this mode, compliant with ITU-R Recommendation BT.709, when images from an HDTV source are projected.
A Dramatic Reduction of TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
The new LED / Laser combined light source in the SOLID SHINE Series Projectors provides approximately 10 years* of operation with no Lamp or Filter replacement needed. This dramatically lowers maintenance costs and labour.
A highly durable system has been achieved with an originally designed, efficient cooling system for the new light source, and a dust proof structure. You get stable operation and solid reliability for a long period of time with 24/7 operation.
DIGITAL LINK enables long distance digital transmission with a single cable. It simplifies connection with various peripheral devices. Learn more about DIGITAL LINK.
* With LIGHT POWER set to Eco2. Replacement of parts other than the light source may be required in shorter period.
Equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, the PT-RZ475EA allows transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 100 metres (328 feet) through a single CAT5e (STP) cable, or higher. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it ideal for ceiling mounted and other permanent installations.
By combining the optional ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box, with its HDMI and other input terminals, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals can be transmitted up to 100 metres (328 feet) over a single CAT5e (STP) cable, or higher. It allows Projector connection with only one cable, making it ideal for ceiling mounted and other permanent installations.
Also, because control signals can be simultaneously transmitted, the ET-YFB100G input signal can easily be switched with the wireless Remote Control that is included with the Projector. The Projector can be controlled by either serial, or LAN communication.
DIGITAL LINK is an original function added to technology based on the transmission standards used in Crestron’s Digital Media 8G+, Extron’s XTP Systems, etc. Signals from the ET-YFB100G can also be relayed to a Non-DIGITAL LINK ready Projector by using another manufacturer’s equipment based on the same technology.*
* Input selection and other ET-YFB100G operations can be performed only when connecting to a DIGITAL LINK compatible Projector.
Interfaces include HDMI and DVI-I inputs. The serial terminal (RS-232C) has an Emulate function that lets you continue using existing control systems when replacing previous Panasonic models. It is also possible to output audio during STANDBY MODE.* This is convenient when connecting an external audio system through the Projector.* *A Closed Caption Decoder is built in.
* Requires menu selection.
** Audio monitoring requires external Speakers and an Audio Amplifier.

Web browser on a Computer connected through a wired LAN system lets you remotely operate Projectors and check their status. An e-mail messaging function can also notify you the overall Projector status.
In addition, Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software is available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic Projectors from a single PC.
The wired LAN terminal is compatible with PJLink™ (class1).
The LAN terminal allows a computer connected to the network to use Crestron Connected™ application software to manage and control system devices. Besides, the AMX Device Discovery technology is built in the PT-RZ475EA.
The Short Throw Lens enables installation in tight spaces. For example, promotional images can be projected even in the narrow space of a retail store showcase, where image projection is not possible with a general purpose lens.
A lens-centered, symmetrical design provides ease of installation, eliminating the need for any special considerations when planning the installation site.
Powered Focus, Short Throw Lens
The lens axis can be shifted ±10 % vertically and ±3.4 % horizontally. This enables you to replace an existing Projector and to make fine tweaks after installation. Because it is a powered focus, the focus can be adjusted by Remote Control when it is installed in a rear projection configuration.
The Projectors can be rotated vertically.
This means you can install one at any up-and-down angle you want, to accommodate different installation conditions.
Images do not appear quickly with lamp-based Projectors because the Projector requires time to warm up. With the PT-RZ475EA, the image appears almost instantly. There's also no cooling time required when turning the power off, so you can quickly turn the Projector On and Off as many times as needed.
Time is required to reach maximum brightness.
Maximum brightness is reached as soon as the
light source goes on.
The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts multiple screens: Edge Blending, Colour Matching.
The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.
This function corrects for slight variations in the colour reproduction range of individual Projectors.
* Consult your dealer for information about colour matching software
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"*
* If the temperature of the Projector's surroundings is elevated, light output may be reduced in order to protect the Projector unit. If this software is used for the brightness control of multiple Projectors, please ensure that as far as possible, the temperature of the surroundings is the same for all Projectors.
Portrait mode allows the Projector to be mounted with its side surface facing down,*for projecting onto a long, vertical screen. This provides a fresh visual effect in museums, public spaces, shopping centres, company showrooms, and similar locations. The
optional ET-PKR100P ceiling mount bracket for portrait projection
is also available.
* The Projector itself cannot be set vertically by itself. Also, the side with terminals should be facing downward. Using the Projector at an angle that exceeds the available angle of 210° may result in malfunctions. If setting up the Projector at an angle that exceeds 210° is required, consult your dealer.
The ET-MWP100G Panasonic Multi Window Processor makes it possible to quickly and efficiently combine multiple PT-RZ475EA Projectors into a multi vision system. Equipped with 16 slots for input / output terminals, the ET-MWP100G enables a combination of 5 optional interface boards, including a DIGITAL LINK output board, to support a variety of input sources and output devices. Images can be split among multiple display units, and multi-windows (PinP) can be freely allotted in desired sizes, locations, inclinations and overlapping orders.
The PT-RZ475EA can deliver impressive 3D images when viewed with active glasses.*
* To view 3D images, active-shutter 3D glasses are separately required. (In the active shutter system, the right / left liquid crystal shutter is opened and closed alternately according to projected images.)
HDMI Input Terminal Supports 3D
The HDMI input terminal supports 3D to project Blu-ray 3D images.

You can build a 3D system without the need for the optional transmitter.
Tested 3D Glasses Compatible with Panasonic Projectors
External transmitter connection capability
An additional 3D IR transmitter can be connected to the Projector's 3D SYNC OUT terminal.
Because the PT-RZ475EA does not use a Lamp, it has an efficient cooling system and uses DLP™ chip that has a long life, they are ideal for 24/7 operation.
Scheduled operation is possible using the built-in timer function, without having to use a PC and software.
You can change the default Panasonic start up logo to any logo you want. A new logo can be easily uploaded by connecting a Computer to the PT-RZ475EA through the LAN, or serial connection by using the Logo Transfer Software.*
An abundance of other security measures are also included, such as a Security Bar, Key lock and Security Password. This is very effective for preventing theft.
* Still images that can be uploaded are limited to 1024 x 768 pixel bitmap files. Also, the application will reduce the number of colours to 191.
A unique ID number can be assigned to each Projector using the supplied wireless Remote Control unit. This allows operation of a desired Projector when multiple units are set up at the same location. Three frequently used functions can be assigned to the Function buttons for instant recall.
A number of functions are provided to reduce power consumption. You can easily set the Eco Management functions according to operating conditions by using the "ECO" button on the Remote Control.
