Bright, versatile operation in a compact and powerful Projector. The RGB Booster ensures vivid, colourful images, and the original Eco Filter eliminates the need for Filter replacement for up to 12,000 hours. A host of terminals and advanced management functions provides enhanced system flexibility. Ideal for a wide variety of applications. Available in Black and Silver.
The high-efficiency light convergence technology and the colour wheel work together to achieve the high brightness 6,000 lm for the PT-DZ680EK. Clear, crisp images are reproduced even in bright rooms.
The RGB Booster achieves high image quality with levels of colour reproduction and brightness that make each colour stand out. It combines Panasonic's proprietary Vivid Colour Control technology with a newly engineered Lamp Modulation Drive System for a 1-chip DLP™ Projector that produces bright and vivid colours.
This unique control technology optimises the use of the colour segment areas of the colour wheel. It increases the brightness of each RGB colour by minimising the unallocated portions between the colours, to achieve truly vivid colouring.
With the advanced Lamp modulation technology, the Projector is able to control the Lamp intensity for each of the red, green, blue, and white segments of the colour wheel separately. Because the actual light output is controlled in relation to each colour segment, light usage is optimised and colour balance is obtained without lowering the brightness. This results in bright vivid images with increased colour fidelity.
This advanced image-processing circuit analyses the video signal frequency range for each scene by extracting data on the distribution of high, mid, and low-frequency components, and brings out fine details accordingly. The resulting images have a more natural, three-dimensional appearance with crisp, clear detail.
Image details are less clear when a Projector is used in a room with the lights on.
Panasonic's System Daylight View 2 improves brightness perception by adjusting sharpness, gamma curves, and colour corrections. This produces crisper, more stunning images with vivid colours even under bright conditions.
This imaging mode is similar to DICOM Part 14, which is a medical imaging standard.
It reproduces X-ray images with remarkable clarity.1
The use of a full 10-bit image processing system provides smooth tonal expression. For example, skin tones appear natural and true to life.
The original Eco Filter consists of two Micro Cut Filters (electrostatic filters), a Pre-Filter and a Main Filter, which use an ion effect to collect extremely small dust particles.
The Pre-Filter has a honeycomb configuration and the main Filter is pleated to achieve a large surface area that raises its dust collecting performance.
Thanks to these features, the Eco Filter has a replacement cycle of up to 12,000 hours,2 which reduces the hassle of maintenance. And, as an environmental consideration, the Filter can be washed with water and reused.3
The Dual-Lamp System eliminates the need to interrupt a presentation if a Lamp should burn out (in Dual-Lamp operation mode). The Lamp Relay mode also operates the Lamps alternately to enable 24/7 Projector operation.
An Eco Filter is replaced from the side and Lamps are replaced from the back panel. Both of them are replaced very easily even after the Projector is installed on the ceiling.
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.
The unit can also be rotated 360 degrees vertically. This means you can install it at any angle you want, to accommodate different installation conditions.
A lens-centered, symmetrical design provides ease of installation, eliminating the need for any special considerations when planning the installation site.
Choose from a wide line up of optional Lenses for your system, including Short Throw, Long Throw Zoom and Fixed Throw Lenses for rear projection use.
The additional Lenses make it easy to adapt your Projector to the installation site. The Lenses attach and detach with one-touch ease.
The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts multiple screens: Edge Blending, Colour Matching and Multi-Screen Processor.
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-DZ680EK Projector can project large, multi-screen images without any additional equipment. Up to 100 units
(10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time.
The PT-DZ680EK can simultaneously display images from two sources onto a single screen.4
For example, you can display a PC image on the left and a video image on the right.
Taking advantage of the wide-screen projection, this function gives you a host of new application possibilities to explore.
The wide-ranging terminals include 2 sets of RGB inputs (compatible with Y/PB/PR signals), an HDMI input, and a DVI-D input. A serial input/output terminal (RS-232C compliant) that allows remote operation from a PC, similar to that of a wireless Remote Control, and a remote terminal for input switching by contact control and standby ON/OFF operation also make it possible to configure a remote operation system.
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.
The LAN terminal allows a Computer connected to the network to use Crestron RoomView™ application software to manage and control system devices. Besides, the AMX Device Discovery technology is built in the PT-DZ680EK Projector.
¹ This product is not a medical instrument. Do not use it for actual medical diagnosis.
² The usage environment affects the duration of the Filter.
³ 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.
⁴ This function is not effective for some source combinations.
