Panasonic PT-RZ970 10,000-Lumen WUXGA Projector

Item No. PT-RZ970

The Panasonic PT-RZ970 offers high picture quality for a variety of applications. Compatible with Art-Nex DMX protocol for lighting management, this series is easy to integrate with your existing AV network. With immersive picture quality and practical features, potential application for Panasonic’s PT-RZ970 Series projectors extends from permanent installation in museums, theaters, and control rooms through roles in exhibition/rental and staging. Powered by the acclaimed SOLID SHINE Laser drive and latest 1-Chip DLP™ technology, these projectors exceed expectations with low-maintenance stability and vivid color performance maintained for longer than competitive products over years of dependable 24/7 operation.




The Quartet Color Harmonizer wheel mechanism captures a wider color space than comparable projectors, which allows white to be reproduced realistically on screen. Some conventional projectors can’t achieve an accurate white balance, so images can appear with a distracting greenish tint. Not the case with Panasonic SOLID SHINE Laser projectors. Thanks to the long-lasting dual solid-state laser modules, there are no lamps to replace, and image color/brightness degrades very gradually in consistent, linear fashion. As well as reducing maintenance hassle, out-of-the-box picture quality is preserved longer.

With next-generation DLP™ technology delivering high-resolution detail and dual laser modules outputting up to 10,400 lm (Center) of brightness, Quartet Color Harmonizer to reduce energy loss from the light source, and robust heat-resistant phosphor wheel, the Panasonic SOLID SHINE Laser system produces scintillating images with unfailing reliability.

The PT-RZ970 Series directly modulates laser power output to achieve high contrast with low power consumption. Digitally controlled frame-by-frame scene-linking modulation ensures highly precise output adjustment, while accurate 10,000:1* contrast is delivered even when bright and dark scenes frequently interchange.

The PT-RZ970 Series is among the world’s first to feature Contrast Sync and Shutter Sync functions (Patent Pending) for multi-screen and mapping applications. Contrast Sync allows the projectors’ digitally modulated contrast function to be synchronized over the network for consistent picture quality across screens, while Shutter Sync incorporates a master/slave principle to synchronize shutter on/off timing between all networked projectors. It includes simultaneous fade-in and fade-out functions.
