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.
Dynamic Iris for a High 10,000:1 Contrast Ratio
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.
Detail Clarity Processor 3 Give Natural Clarity to Even The Finest Details
This unique Panasonic circuit optimises 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.
System Daylight View 2 for Enhanced Colour Perception
This unique Panasonic technology optimises image quality to improve the colour 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.
DICOM Simulation Mode*2
This imaging mode is similar to DICOM part 14, which is a medical imaging standard. It reproduces X-ray images with remarkable clarity.
Active 3D Projection Capability
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.
Low TCO and Environmentally Friendly Design
The PT-DZ21KE 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.
Four Lamp System Enable Stable, Extended Operation
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.
Easy Lamp Replacement
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.
Liquid Cooling System Attains a High Level of Reliability
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 stabilising performance. It also helps to make the body compact and the system is hermetically sealed, so you don't need to replenish the liquid.
Eco Filter That Needs No Maintenance for Up To 12,000 Hours*5
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 the 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-centred design contributes to easy installation.
Multi Unit Brightness Control
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."
Multi Screen Support System Seamlessly Connects Multiple Screens
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.
The PT-DZ21KE can project large, multi-screen images without any additional equipment. Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time.
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.
Optional Upgrade Kit (ET-UK20) Featuring Geometry Manager Pro
The new Geometry Manager Pro software included in the optional upgrade kit ET-UK20 supports Colour 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-DZ21KE has an array of terminals, including DVI-D, HDMI and two RGB inputs. The PT-DZ21KE features a 3D-ready HD / SD-SDI input and 3D sync terminals to connect an emitter for 3D projection.
Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software Ver. 2.7
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.
*9 Logo Transfer Software required.
