A new heat-resistant material is used in the phosphor source. Combined with a drive system that is also optimized for the light source, this made it possible to achieve the world's first 6,500 lm of brightness in a 1-chip DLP™ projector.
Remarkable 10,000:1 contrast ratio
The PT-RZ670 projector directly controls the output of the laser light source itself, enabling faster response than lamp-based projectors. Frame-by-frame scene-linking modulation with complete digital control makes it possible to adjust the light output with higher precision. This gives the PT-RZ670 a remarkable 10,000:1 contrast without lowering brightness.
Dynamic light control technology for precise contrast
Dynamic light control technology enables highly precise contrast control even when bright and dark suddenly or frequently interchange. There is also almost no reduction in contrast when the projector is used for extended periods of time.
Advanced Technologies for excellent image quality
Detailed clarity processor 3 gives natural clarity to even the finest detailed and the system Daylight view 2 delivers enhanced colour perception. The PT-RZ670 has a host of other advanced technologies including: Rec. 709 mode for HDTV projections, Waveform monitor function, 3D colour
management system, Full 10-bit image processing, Progressive cinema scan (3:2 pulldown), Dynamic sharpness control, and digital noise reduction.
Solid Shine Lamp-free technology
Solid shine lamp-free technology provides solid reliability and long-lasting brightness with approximately 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation. There is no need to replace a lamp or air filter, providing a dramatic reduction in the total cost of ownership (TCO).
The rate of brightness deterioration in the laser source is extremely slow compared to lamp-based projectors.
Built-in brightness and colour sensors eliminate fluctuations in brightness and colour to constantly maintain the optimal balance.
Dual drive laser optical engine for reliable 24/7 operation
It is almost impossible to imagine that a laser light source would suddenly go blank. The PT-RZ670 uses two sets of light sources that group laser diodes into a number of modules. Based on redundant design, the laser diodes are put to considerable use, so over the long term, if a laser diode were to stop functioning, a protective circuit would activate to keep the brightness drop extremely small.
Powerful cooling system maintains stable operation from 0°C to 45°C
The PT-RZ670 employs newly developed cooling systems for the laser light source and DLP™ chip to suppress temperature rises inside the projector, allowing stable operation up to an ambient temperature of 45°C (113°F). The use of these cooling systems also achieves quiet operation of 35 dB, enabling viewers to concentrate on the projected content.
Multi-screen support system connects multiple screens
The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts multiple screens. The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled through edge blending. The colour matching function corrects slight variations in the colour reproduction range of individual projectors. The PT-RZ670 features a digital zoom that allows images to be enlarged up to 10 times (horizontally and vertically).
Flexible installation assures convenient use
The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift function assures convenience and versatility during installation. It lets you easily make adjustments with the remote control.
Omnidirectional installation capability
With the PT-RZ670, projection is possible in any direction vertically and horizontally, and the unit can be rotated 360 degrees for installation at any angle.
Multi-unit brightness control for up to 8 projectors
For critical control rooms projection mapping, 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 can be increased to a maximum of 2,048 projectors by using Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software.
Geometric Adjustment for specially 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 and also, up to three sets of adjusted data can be stored as PC1, PC2 and PC3. New 4-Corner Adjustment and Keep Aspect Off functions also simplify fine adjustment.
Geometry Manager Pro software optimises performance
The Geometry Manager Pro* software offers a more flexible and complex geometric adjustment capability, and supports color matching and edge blending for multi-screen projection. It also makes adjustments for multiple projectors fast and easy over a network. *Geometric Adjustment (Geometry Manager Pro) is an optional upgrade which occurs an extra charge
Digital Link The single cable solution
Digital Link is an original function added to HDBaseT™ technology. Equipped with a digital link terminal, the PT-RZ670 allows transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video and control signals (ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 100 meters (328 feet) through a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher.
Easy remote monitoring and control over a LAN
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 when a lamp needs replacement, and indicate the overall projector status.
Multiple terminals with HD-SDI compatibility
The PT-RZ670 has multiple terminals, inclusing DVI-D and HDMI terminals. It also features an SDI (SD-, HD-, and 3G-SDI) input terminal.
Art-Net compatible for effective lighting management
The PT-RZ670 projector is compatible with the Art-Net protocol for lighting management. Art-Net compatibility lets you connect the projector to the lighting consol, and operate functions such as shutter on/off, input change, power on/off, etc, together with the light control.
