PT-EX12K
Key Features

LCD, 13000 lumens, XGA

Rich colour reproduction and brightness with the Pure Colour Control technology

Dual lamp system for high reliable long usage

Various optional lenses for high flexibility

Reliable high brightness LCD projector Designed for events and staging applications

Bright, vibrant large-screen images

 

  • A 2-model lineup with the high-brightness and contrast 

A Full 16,000 lm of Brightness and 2,500:1 Contrast (PT-EX16K)

The 4-Lamp Optical System uses high-output, 380 W UHM lamps to deliver remarkable 16,000-lm brightness. And the contrast ratio is a high 2,500:1, to ensure bright, crisp, large-screen projection.

 

High 13,000-lm Brightness and 4,000:1 Contrast (PT-EX12K)

The 2-Lamp Optical System uses high-output, 380 W UHM lamps to produce high brightness of 13,000 lm. Contrast is also high at 4,000:1. Images are sharp and crisp.

 

  • Excellent colors with pure color control   

It is inherently difficult for LCD projectors to attain both high brightness and superb color reproduction. For this reason, in addition to the three conventional LCD panels that control the light intensity for the red, blue and green primary colors, the PT-EX16K/EX12K also features a Pure Color Control function that independently controls the light intensity of yellow coloring. This provides rich overall color expression while maintaining brightness.

 

  • Full 10-bit image processing system    

The use of a full 10-bit image processing system provides smooth tonal expression.
For example, skin tones appear natural and true to life.

High reliability for long-time use     

 

  • The multi-lamp optical system enables stable, extended operation      

Even if one lamp goes out during use, the other lamps continue, so projection is not interrupted.
Lamp Relay mode also allows long-time, continuous operation.

Brightness and Lamp Replacement Cycle Guideline

PT-EX16K

Lamp Brightness (lumens) Maximum lamp replacement cycle (hours)*
Four lamps (Normal) 16,000 2,000
Four lamps (Eco1 or Eco2) 12,320 3,000
Two lamps (Normal) 8,000 4,000
Two lamps (Eco1 or Eco2) 6,160 6,000

PT-EX12K

Lamp Brightness (lumens) Maximum lamp replacement cycle (hours)*
Two lamps (Normal) 13,000 2,000
Two lamps (Eco1 or Eco2) 10,010 3,000
One lamp (Normal) 6,500 4,000
One lamp (Eco1 or Eco2) 5,005 6,000

 

  • Highly durable optical engine ensures excellent long-time image quality       

The LCD panels and polarizers inside the LCD projector's optical block tend to degrade over time. Their degradation adversely affects image quality. Inorganic materials are used for the LCD panels, and for the polarizers that are prone to degradation, to resist time-related changes in the optical block, therefore achieving a replacement cycle of up to 10,000 hours.

 

  • Adverse dust effects prevented by a long-lasting air filter (PT-EX16K)

The use of a large pleated air filter has made it possible to achieve a replacement cycle of up to 5,000 hours.*
This greatly reduces maintenance hassles. The filter is also replaced from the front, so there is no need to detach
the projector from its bracket in ceiling-mounted applications.

* With the lamp power set to Normal. The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.

 

  • The long-lasting eco filter with user-friendly maintenance  (PT-EX12K)     

The PT-EX12K features the Eco Filter, which efficiently captures dust and requires no replacement for up to 12,000 hours.*1 It consists of Micro Cut Filters*2 that use an ion effect to collect extremely small dust particles. These large-surface, pleated filters have a high dust collecting performance. In addition to its long replacement cycle, the Eco Filter can be washed with water*3 for repeated use, further increasing its ecological performance. The Eco Filter can also be removed through the top panel of the projector, enabling filter replacement on ceiling-mounted projectors without having to detach the projector from its mounting bracket.

*1 With the lamp power set to Normal. The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.
*2 Electrostatic filters.
*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.

 

  • Optional smoke cut filter provides protection from fine smoke particles  (PT-EX16K)    

The projector can be equipped with an optional Smoke Cut Filter ET-SFE16 to prevent the entry of not only dust but also fine smoke particles, such as those used for special effects at events and stage performances.

 

 

Excellent system expandability     

 

  • The horizontal/ vertical lens shift function and a variety of lenses     

Both zooming and focusing can be done by remote control. The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift function assures convenience and versatility during installation. You can also choose from a wide variety of lenses, from short or long focus zoom lenses to a fixed focus lens for rear projection. This makes it possible to install the projector in a variety of locations.

 

  • Lens-centered design (PT-EX12K)

A lens-centered, symmetrical design provides ease of installation, eliminating the need for any special considerations when planning the installation site.

 

  • Flexible installation

The projector can be rotated 360° vertically for flexible installation. This allows projection from directly above or below, for exciting visual possibilities in art galleries, theaters and showrooms.

 

  • Corner keystone correction enables angled protection 

All you need to do is designate four points as the corners of the projected image, and this function automatically carries
out horizontal and vertical keystone correction.

 

  • Multi-screen support system seamlessly connects multiple screens  

The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts multiple screens: Edge blending, color matching.

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.

 

  • Versatile interfaces and illuminated terminal and control panel   

The wide-ranging terminals include 2 sets of RGB inputs*, an HDMI input, and a DVI-D input. Mounting the optional Interface Board ET-MD16SD1 also accommodates HD/SD-SDI signal input. 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.

* One set supports YPBPR (YCBCR) signals.

 

  • Mechanical shutter for a total screen blackout    

The Mechanical Shutter lets you mechanically block the light to completely blackout the screen,
and prevents light leakage from the lens. When closing the shutter, the projection image gradually fades out,
then gradually fades in when opening, which brings more attractive stage effects.

 

  • Easy remote control and observation     

A 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.

In addition, Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software is available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic projectors from a single PC.

The wired LAN terminal is compatible with PJLink™ (class1), an open protocol that is used by many manufacturers, to enable integrated control of systems that contain different brands of projectors.

 

  • Robust carrying handles

An iron base plate is mounted to the bottom of the main unit. Also, robust carrying handles attached to the base plate are designed for easy carrying of the projector.

 

  • Top-panel lamp replacement simplifies maintenance 

The lamp can be reached through the top panel for easy replacement. This eliminates the need to detach the projector from its mounting bracket in ceiling-mounted applications and greatly simplifies maintenance.

 

  • Other features

 

  • • Direct Power Off allows the power cord to be unplugged right after use.
  • • Wireless and wired remote control that allows the allocation of up to 64 IDs.
  • • Logo Transfer Software* lets you upload any startup logo you want.

 

* Still images that can be uploaded are limited to 1,024 x 768 pixel bitmap files.
Also, the application reduces the number of colors to 191.
