Key Features

1080p-compatible Full HD Projector

High performance in a compact body

3-Chip DLP Projector Long-lasting 16,000 lm

Long-lasting 16,000 lm of Brightness

3,000 hour lamp replacement

1080p-compatible, high performance, Full HD Large-Venue Projector with excellent durability and low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)

  • Incredible 16.000 Im of brightness

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 16,000 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* contrast
without lowering its high brightness. This helps to reproduce deeper, richer blacks, and provides images
with more detailed textures.

* Full on/off, with dynamic iris set to “3”.

  • Detail clarity processor 3 gives natural clarity to even the finest details

This unique Panasonic circuit optimizes 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 color perception

This unique Panasonic technology optimizes image quality to improve the color perception of the projected image in bright rooms.
With a brightness of 16,000 lm, it provides highly comfortable viewing even in bright lighting, and allows viewers to concentrate easily on the images.

  • DICOM simulation mode*

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.

  • Wave monitoring function

When the output level of the source device fluctuates due to the performance of the device or its cable connections, the original black and white levels of the image content cannot be reproduced correctly. With the PT-DZ16K projector you can view the waveforms on the screen and adjust the settings either automatically or manually as you prefer.

  • Advanced monitor functioning

• Fine-adjustable color temperature
• Full 10-bit image processing
• 3D color management system
• IP conversion
• Digital noise reduction
• Dynamic sharpness control
• Progressive cinema scan (3:2 pulldown)
• AI scene control
• 2:2 pulldown mode
• sRGB compatibility

  • 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 attaining 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).*
It allows quiet (48 dB) and versatile use while stabilizing performance.
It also helps to make the body compact. And the system is hermetically sealed, so you don’t need to replenish the liquid.

* 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.

 

  • Eco filter that needs no maintenance for up to 12,000 hours*  

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 hassle, and the environmental design lets you wash the filter with water and reuse it.**

* The usage environment affects the filter maintenance cycle.

** 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.

  • Flexible installation    

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*, to accommodate various installation conditions. The lens-centered design contributes to easy installation.

* 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.

 

  • A wide selection of lenses (optional)    

Choose from a wide lineup of 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.

 

  • Lens memory     

The settings of projection size, lens shift position, and focus/zoom can be stored in memory and recalled for instant switching.

* The settings stored in memory and the projection condition after recall may not match perfectly.

 

  • 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.”

 

  • Multi-screen support system seamlessly connects multiple screens       

The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts multiple screens: Edge blending, Color matching and Digital image enlarging.

Edge Blending

The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.

Color Matching

This function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors.

Digital Image Enlarging

The PT-DZ16K features a digital zoom function that allows images to be enlarged up to 10 times (horizontally and vertically).* Up to 100 units
(10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time to create large, multi-screen images.

* While the input resolution will not change, maintaining image quality will not be possible for those images that are enlarged horizontally and vertically via the digital zoom function.

 

  • Backup input setting* assures reliability and optimizes performance        

The Backup Input Setting* allows the signal to be switched to the backup input signal as seamlessly as possible when the input signal is disrupted.**
This function ensures high reliability and is ideal for critical control rooms, projection mapping, staging, and other applications where images should not be interrupted.

* The Backup Input Setting is possible by updating the projector's firmware to MAIN Ver. 1.04. or later.

** The combination of the primary/secondary input terminals is fixed. Use the combination of DVI-D (primary) and HDMI (secondary) terminals. The Backup Input Setting is enabled only when the input signal to the primary and secondary terminals is the same.

Note: Please contact your sales representative for information on the Backup Input Setting.

  • 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.

 

  • Multiple terminals          

The PT-DZ16K has an array of terminals, including SDI (3G-SDI, HD-SDI and HD-SDI), DVI-D, HDMI and two RGB inputs.

Multi projector monitoring & control software           

Panasonic’s original Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software 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.
