Las Vegas, June 18, 2014 – Panasonic, a provider of professional projector solutions, today announced several new additions to its leading suite of projector products and accessories, including the PT-VZ570 Series projector, the ET-D75LE90 ultra short-throw lens for 3-chip DLP projectors, the PT-EZ580 projector and a new ET-ELW22 short-throw lens for LCD projectors. These latest products, along with a robust sample of Panasonic’s other current projectors, professional displays and digital signage, can be seen at InfoComm 2014 (booth #C5416).
“People around the world rely on Panasonic projectors for both the extraordinary and the quotidian: Our projectors have produced the dazzling lighting effects at the Olympics, but are also found in classrooms around the country,” said Art Rankin, Senior Director AV Technologies, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America.
PT-VZ570 Series Projector
As of June 2014, the PT-VZ570 Series is the world’s first 11-pound or less WUXGA high-brightness portable LCD projector. With a high contrast ratio of 5,000:1 and daylight view technology, the new series is able to create sharp, detailed images in well-lit classrooms and meeting spaces, all while keeping noise level down.
· Range of models: The series is comprised of six projectors that range from 4,500-5,500 lumens.
· Low maintenance: The PT-VZ570 Series offers up to 7,000 hours of lamp and filter maintenance-free operation, reducing total cost of ownership for businesses and educational institutions.
· Flexible installation: The projectors are versatile, working well in both portable and in ceiling-mount applications. Additionally, the vertical lens shift and screen adjustment functions allow users to easily adjust images projected onto flat screens or curved surfaces, in addition to situations that require angled projection.
· Network Collaboration: The PT-VZ570 Series facilitates collaboration and supports BYOD platforms with wirelessprojection capabilities for PC and technology based on Miracast™ mobile devices. Certain models in this series of projectors also use DIGITAL LINK based on HDBaseT™ technology that reduces cost and complexity of installation by allowing transmission of HD video, audio and control commands through a single CAT5e cable.
PT-EZ580 Projector and ET-ELW22 Lens
Panasonic is adding to its lineup of high brightness LCD projectors with the PT-EZ580 Series, along with a new optional short throw zoom lens – the ET-ELW22 lens – with a throw ratio of approximately 0.8-1.0:1, facilitates flexible installation in limited spaces. Designed with mid-sized classrooms and corporate boardrooms in mind, the PT-EZ580 operates quietly yet provides a high brightness of 5,000-6,200 lumens.
