The Panasonic PT-DZ12000 is a full-HD, wide-screen projector capable of displaying high-resolution images with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Its 3-chip DLPÂ® system offers superb motion response to deliver smooth, clear motion images with minimal blur even in fast-action scenes. Highly resistant to heat and time-related deterioration, the Panasonic PT-DZ12000 allows extended, continuous operation.
Multi-Lamp Optical System
With Panasonics original four lamp system, the Panasonic PT-DZ12000 generates 12,000-lumen brightness. If one lamp burns out during operation, the remaining lamps provide plenty of light to continue projecting. A lamp relay mode is also included. Extended, continuous operation is possible by lamp mode selection.
Incorporating exclusive Panasonic technology, the dynamic iris opens and closes with exceptional speed and precision as the input signal changes, resulting in accurate, real-time control of the light striking the DLPÂ® chips. The dynamic iris is positioned immediately after the light synthesizer and before the integrator, so it has minimal adverse effect on the overall light uniformity across the screen.
3D Color Management System
Compensation provides optimal levels of color saturation, hue, and brightness that were not possible with conventional projectors. Colors approach those of the original image, even on large-screen displays.
Full 10-bit Picture Processing
The use of a full 10-bit image processing system provides smooth tonal expression. For example, skin tones appear natural and true to life.
Dynamic Sharpness Control
The dynamic sharpness control circuit adjusts the video signal waveforms based on the difference in brightness of adjacent pixels for a sharp, clear picture that is relatively unaffected by signal noise.
Progressive Cinema Scan (3/2 pulldown)
This interlace/progressive conversion technology automatically detects when the input signal is derived from filmed material and selects the optimum progressive processing method to assure faithful reproduction of the original image
New Cooling Structure
In order to further enhance the cooling efficiency, we completely revised the placement of various internal components and combined this with our popular cooling system to enable use in temperatures up to 45Â°C. This allows use in a wider variety of environments, and keeps the operation more stable even in harsh conditions.
Panasonics original liquid-cooling system directly cools the DLPÂ® chips, which extends the Panasonic PT-DZ12000s performance and attains a high level of reliability.
Auto Cleaning Robot (ACR)
The Panasonic PT-DZ12000 is the worlds first*1 projector with an automatic filter cleaning system. When you switch on the projector*2, the air filter operates and the brush of the auto cleaning "robot" removes dust from the filter. This prevents the clogging results in malfunctions and other problems.
Lamp LED Indicator and Self-Diagnosis Function
The projector body is equipped with a temperature alarm LED and a burnt-lamp alarm LED (for lamps 1 to 4). In previous models, the LED indicator was visible only from the front. In the Panasonic PT-DZ12000 the LED is visible from both front and top, so you can see it easily even if the unit is hung from the ceiling. Information on the location of the error is also given in the on-screen display. A self-diagnosis function is also provided. Error codes displayed on the 3-digit, 7-segment LED on the side of the projector tell the operator where the problem is.
Web Brower Control / Monitoring and e-Mail Message Alert
Anybody can operate the Panasonic PT-DZ12000 by remote control or monitor its status over a LAN network, because it is all done using the computers familiar web browser. Furthermore, the Panasonic PT-DZ12000 sends an e-mail message to notify the operator when an error has occurred, or a lamp needs to be replaced.
This is the first*1 projector with a brightness of 12,000 lumens or more to operate on 120 VAC*2. And Panasonics new liquid-cooling system made it possible to significantly downsize the Panasonic PT-DZ12000, making it one of the most compact in its class. The size is 30% smaller than our previous model*3, and the weight and volume are 70% less than our previous model. The Panasonic PT-DZ12000 also offers flexible installation and is easy to operate.
Horizontal/Vertical Lens Shift
A wide adjustment range for the horizontal/vertical lens shift assures virtually distortion-free images and adds convenience and versatility. Fine adjustment is made within Â±50% from center in the vertical direction and within Â±30% from center in the horizontal direction. (Horizontal: powered, Vertical: powered).
Optional Lenses for Various Venues
Seven optional lenses with different throw distances are available. These powered zoom/focus lenses enable the projector to perform superbly in an array of projection environments. The lens cover opens in both front and top directions, making it easier to install the lens by viewing the mark on the top of the lens.
Built-In Multi-Screen Support System
The Panasonic PT-DZ12000 can project large, multi-screen images without any additional equipment. Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time.
When several units are used together, this function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors. The PC software assures easy, accurate control. Independent, 7-axis adjustment (red, green, blue, yellow, magenta, cyan, white) ensures high precision and minimizes color variations.
The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled. For example, the adjoining edges in a 2x2 multi-screen system can be blended to create a smooth, seamless image.
Multiple Terminals Including DVI-D and LAN Slots
The Panasonic PT-DZ12000 comes equipped with DVI-D and LAN (PJ-Linkâ„˘) slots. It also features an array of terminals, including two RGB inputs and D-sub HD 15-pin, a 5-BNC connector, serial in/out, S-video input, two remote inputs, and one remote out. In addition to offering DVI-D control, the Panasonic PT-DZ12000 is HDCP*-compliant and thus meets a broad range of projection needs.
Easy Lamp Replacement
You can remove the back cover by removing a single screw. This makes it easy to replace a lamp, even if the projector is suspended from the ceiling or tucked in a hard-to-reach space.
Blind Touch Operation Key/New Remote Control
The keys have pits and projections that let you operate the projector by blind touch. A light can also be turned on to illuminate the control panel, for easy operation in a darkened room. The wireless operation range has been extended to 30 m, giving you control from a greater distance. Thanks to the backlight, you can check all the keys on the remote control even in the dark. The lens can also be adjusted using the lens adjustment direct key that was newly added to the remote control.
Grooved for Easy Handling
Grooves on all four sides of the projectors bottom let you get a firm, comfortable grip on the unit and move it safely
