Clear, Long-Lasting Viewing for Efficiency and Comfort
Pure White Generator Enriches Colors with 16,000 lm* Brightness
New 1-inch LCD panels, Multi-Laser Drive Engine, inorganic phosphor wheel, and Pure White Generator combine to achieve brighter and more natural color expression. Pure White Generator reduces energy wastage from the light source using a Panasonic-original multi-reflection engine that collects blue laser light with very high efficiency. Pure White Generator harnesses the extra light to improve color accuracy and create vibrant, natural, true-to-life colors that appear brighter and deeper on screen. Regardless of the installation site and ambient light levels, audiences can enjoy immersive high-quality images comfortably viewed for extended periods.
Reliable Operation Reduces Callouts in Real-World Conditions
Our First LCD Projectors with Liquid Cooling for Multi-Laser Drive
The PT-MZ16K Series is our first LCD projector lineup to feature a liquid-cooling system for multiple solid-state laser modules, securing reliable projection stability. As well as raising the ceiling for high-brightness projection in elevated locations and in environments subject to heat, the liquid-cooling system contributes to whisper-quiet 32–38 dB operation (depending on the projection mode)* to minimize distracting noise within the learning space.
Panasonic’s Original Phosphor-Wheel Cooling System
The PT-MZ16K Series features a dedicated and original sealed cooling system for the phosphor wheel, which is made of durable, heat-resistant inorganic material. Extensive shielding around the phosphor-wheel assembly protects against dust-particle intrusion for extended reliability and consistent brightness.
Multi-Laser Drive Engine with Failover Redundancy Circuits
Multi-Drive Laser Optical Engine groups laser diodes into multiple laser modules. If one diode in a module fails, only a limited number of diodes in the affected series are bypassed. The remaining diodes continue to operate, maintaining close to full brightness. If a laser diode fails in other projectors, the entire module shuts down, resulting in a dramatic loss of brightness. The PT-MZ16K Series adds an invaluable layer of insurance when image presentation must not be interrupted.
Backup Input Switching Maintains Picture Display
This LCD projector series boasts a flexible backup input-switching function configurable to receive the same input signal via a combination of assigned primary and secondary inputs. If signal transmission to the primary input fails, projection continues via the assigned backup input without screen blanking. When communication is restored, the projector switches back to primary input automatically. This feature is invaluable when projection must be maintained without interruption.
New Information Monitor
To further simplify setup and operation of the PT-MZ16K Series, an Information Monitor is located on the rear panel adjacent to terminals and physical controls. The monitor provides menu-based navigation for smooth setup of Projector ID and basic network configuration. It also shows projector status including temperature, runtime, and active signal data, as well as error codes should a problem be detected.
Supports 4K Signal Input
The PT-MZ16K Series supports uncompressed 4K/60p video-signal input via HDMI® or DIGITAL LINK terminals. The ability to play Ultra HD video at the projector’s supported native resolution is useful in situations where the same premium video content is intended for playback on multiple 4K and non-4K projectors or displays. It saves operators the hassle of re-encoding source video and allows the PT-MZ16K Series to be added to a projector network that includes 4K units, streamlining simultaneous playback of a single 4K video source on all compatible display devices.
First LCD Projectors to Support Geometry Manager Pro Software
These are Panasonic’s first LCD projectors to support free Geometry Manager Pro software traditionally available with our large-venue DLP™ projectors. The software expands built-in geometric and multi-screen adjustment capabilities with a Free Grid function that governs 4-corner adjustment, keystone correction, curved-screen correction, and free-form image correction via PC interface. Two upgrade kits can be unlocked with paid license keys to further deepen functionality. ET-UK20 adds uniformity correction and an extensive creative masking package, while ET-CUK10 features Auto Screen Adjustment for simultaneous setup of multiple screens (including curved-screen correction) using a compatible camera. These kits expedite edge-blending and color-matching images over multiple screens with automatic calibration for black level, brightness uniformity, and stacking.
Dynamic Contrast of 3,000,000:1* for Natural Image Expression
Precision laser power output modulation achieves high contrast with low power consumption, enabling superior expression of light and dark scenes for a natural, comfortable viewing experience. The PT-MZ16K Series features high 3,000,000:1* dynamic contrast.
Detail Clarity Processor 4 Provides Pin-Sharp Insight
Proprietary circuitry analyzes individual video frames to clarify areas of each image containing fine details. Algorithms pull information from four frequency bands of the signal, sharpening outlines, correcting contours, and reducing ringing noise for a vastly superior picture.
Color Adjustment Function
Color Adjustment makes it easy to correct slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual units set up for multiple projection, particularly those in side-by-side configuration. Correction is performed on 3 or 7 colors.
Multi-Screen Support System
Optimally adjusts multiple screens with edge blending, color matching, and digital image enlargement.
Edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.
Corrects color reproduction variations of each projector via PC control software.
