Combining 3-Chip DLP imaging with Panasonic’s original SOLID SHINE Laser technology, the PT-RQ13K achieves lifelike 4K+ resolution with an impressive 10,000 lumens of brightness. Outstanding brightness, colour accuracy, and contrast are achieved thanks to two powerful solid-state laser light source modules and three independent DLP chips.
Quad Pixel Drive Goes Beyond 4K
PT-RQ13K achieves better-than-4K resolution thanks to a high-speed WQXGA DMD chip that quadrupoles the pixel count. Working together with Real Motion Processor 240 Hz frame-creation technology, Quad Pixel Drive pixel-quadrupling technology produces stunningly detailed 5120 x 3200-pixel (4K+, 16:10) images that retain natural sharpness and clarity.
More Accurate Colour Reproduction
The PT-RQ13K captures a more accurate Rec. 709-compliant colour space than comparable laser projectors. A blue laser ensures greater precision while an expanded colour gamut improves white balance accuracy.
Liquid-Smooth Motion Reproduction
Real Motion Processor uses sophisticated algorithms to create three additional frames for each image, boosting native 60 fps footage to 240 frames per second. The result is incredibly smooth and realistic motion.
Improved Colour Perception
PT-RQ13K delivers clear and comfortable viewing in the most challenging applications thanks to Panasonic’s exclusive System Daylight View 3 technology. It optimises image quality to improve colour perception of images projected onto walls and other surfaces for projection mapping.
Intricate 4K Details Enhanced
Panasonic’s new generation circuit technology analyses each individual image frame by frame to clarify areas containing fine details and textures. The PT-RQ13K adds an exclusive Refine Enhancer which enhances even the finest details contained in 4K+ images.
PT-RQ13K’s SOLID SHINE Laser system allows free 360-degree installation through any axis. Together with extra-wide-range powered lens shift and a big range of optional lenses shared by Panasonic’s 3-Chip DLP projector family, PT-RQ13K can be mounted any way, without picture distortion.
Single-Cable 4K DIGITAL LINK Connection
DIGITAL LINK supports transmission of 4K video signals and control commands through a single cable for distances of up to 50m thanks to HDBaseT technology. An optional ET-YFB200G DIGITAL LINK Switcher or ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box further simplifies installation in large venues while reducing cost and
Seamless Connection of Multiple Screens
Multi-Screen Support System optimises multiple screens with edge blending, colour matching, and digital image enlargement.
Multi-Unit Brightness and Colour Control
This innovative function automatically corrects brightness and colour fluctuations that occur over time in individual projectors in a multi-screen system.
Geometric Adjustment for Special Projections
Geometric Adjustment modifies images for projection onto spherical, cylindrical, and other specially shaped screens. Adjustments are easy to make using the remote control, and no external equipment is needed. If further adjustments are required, the free software package Geometry Manager Pro, enables more flexible and complex geometric adjustments such as colour matching and edge blending for multi-screen projection.
The laser light source does not require any warm-up time, so images appear almost instantly with PT-RQ13K. No cooling time is required when turning the power off. Users can turn the projector on and off immediately as many times as necessary.
Backup Input Setting for Reliability and Optimal Performance
In the event of signal disruption, a Backup Input Setting allows the primary signal to be switched to a backup input signal.
PT-RQ13K features four built-in 3G-SDI inputs and a DIGITAL LINK terminal. It also features Panasonic’s convenient SLOT NX for optional terminal boards including HDMI, DVI, and SDI.
Efficient Cooling System Assures Reliable Operation
PT-RQ13K features a newly developed direct liquid cooling system for the laser light source which features a re-designed air intake and a solid aluminium heat sink to suppress temperature rises. This allows stable operation in ambient temperatures of up to 45°C while reducing operating noise to just 46dB.
The PT-RQ13K has hermetically sealed laser modules, a long-life Eco Filter, and a new air-intake system to extend life and maintain picture quality in dusty locations.
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
PT-RQ13K’s fully-sealed optical block and re-designed air intake ensures 20,000 hours maintenance-free service and the filters also don’t need cleaning or replacing. This revolutionary design has also halved energy consumption compared to other professional 4K projectors.
Eco Filter Extends Replacement Cycle to 20,000 Hours
The Eco Filter has an electrostatic Micro Cut Filter that collects minute dust particles, enabling long-term use, even under tough usage conditions. The eco-friendly washable filter can also be reused to reduce cost and waste.
Optional Software for Monitoring and Status
Multi Monitoring & Control Software lets you control and monitor multiple projectors at the same time over wired LAN. If a problem occurs, an alert is sent to the monitoring/controlling PC.
In addition, Panasonic’s Early Warning Software monitors the status of projectors and informs the operator when an abnormality is detected or predicted, and when there are symptoms of trouble.
Short Throw Lens for 3-Chip DLP Projectors
Mount the newly developed ET-D75LE90 Ultra-Short-Throw Lens onto supported Panasonic 3-Chip DLP projectors and reduce projection distance. This allows the high brightness and picture quality of the PT-RQ13K to be utilised in smaller spaces.
