Panasonic PT-RQ25KU Series 3-Chip DLP 4K SOLID SHINE Laser Projectors
Panasonic Connect introduces the new PT-RQ25KU Series1 , the smallest and lightest 20,000lm 3-Chip DLP 4K laser projector released by Panasonic. Understanding the continued demands for providing captivating content, simplified setup, and remote functionality, the PT-RQ25KU Series is designed for venues hosting live events, concerts, and festivals, along with theme park and location-based entertainment attractions.
With exceptional image quality and significant workflow advantages, the PT-RQ25KU Series is 40% smaller and 35% lighter than its predecessor, simplifying everything from transport and storage to installation and set-up. It delivers up to 20,000 lumens of high brightness at 4K resolution (3840 x 2400) with extremely detailed life-like visuals. Designed for maintenance-free reliability for over 20,000-hours, it is Panasonic Connect’s first projector to be Intel Smart Display Module (SDM) ready so customers can integrate their preferred interface(s) via compatible third-party modules and optional proprietary terminal boards, such as 12G-SDI, DIGITAL LINK.
Further time-saving set-up features come from the Smart Projector Control application and Near Field Communication (NFC) function. These features make it easy to read and change basic setups by holding a mobile device against the projector’s touchpoint. The Remote Preview Lite function checks the content signals from a remote PC via Multi-Media Control Software or a web browser, while the preactivated upgrade kits for Geometry Manager Pro automate edge-blending via a camera to enable sophisticated masking functions.
