A Full 16,000 lm of Brightness and 2,500:1 Contrast 

The 4-Lamp Optical System uses high-output, 380 W UHM lamps to deliver remarkable 16,000-lm brightness. And the contrast ratio is a high 2,500:1, to ensure bright, crisp, large-screen projection.

 

Excellent color with pure color control 

It is inherently difficult for LCD projectors to attain both high brightness and superb color reproduction. For this reason, in addition to the three conventional LCD panels that control the light intensity for the red, blue and green primary colors, the PT-EX12K also features a Pure Color Control function that independently controls the light intensity of yellow coloring. This provides rich overall color expression while maintaining brightness.

 

Full 10-bit image processing system 

The use of a full 10-bit image processing system provides smooth tonal expression.  For example, skin tones appear natural and true to life.

 

The multi lamp optical system enables stable, extended operation 

Even if one lamp goes out during use, the other lamps continue, so projection is not interrupted. Lamp Relay mode also allows long-time, continuous operation.

Lamp Brightness (lumens) Maximum lamp replacement cycle
(hours)*1
Four lamps (Normal) 16,000 2,000
Four lamps (Eco1 or Eco2) 12,320 3,000
Two lamps (Normal) 8,000 4,000
Two lamps (Eco1 or Eco2) 6,160 6,000

 

 

Highly durable optical engine ensures excellent long time image quality 

The LCD panels and polarizers inside the LCD projector's optical block tend to degrade over time. Their degradation adversely affects image quality. Inorganic materials are used for the LCD panels, and for the polarizers that are prone to degradation, to resist time-related changes in the optical block, therefore achieving a replacement cycle of up to 10,000 hours.

 

Adverse dust effects prevented by a long lasting air filter 

The use of a large pleated air filter has made it possible to achieve a replacement cycle of up to 5,000 hours *2.  This greatly reduces maintenance hassles. The filter is also replaced from the front, so there is no need to detach the projector from its bracket in ceiling-mounted applications.

 

Optional smoke cut filter provides protection from fine smoke particles 

The projector can be equipped with an optional Smoke Cut Filter ET-SFE16 to prevent the entry of not only dust but also fine smoke particles, such as those used for special effects at events and stage performances

 

The horizontal/vertical lens shift function and a vareity of lenses 

Both zooming and focusing can be done by remote control. The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift function assures convenience and versatility during installation. You can also choose from a wide variety of lenses, from short or long focus zoom lenses to a fixed focus lens for rear projection. This makes it possible to install the projector in a variety of locations.

 

Flexible installation 

The projector can be rotated 360° vertically for flexible installation. This allows projection from directly above or below, for exciting visual possibilities in art galleries, theaters and showrooms.

 

Corner keystone correction enables angled projection 

All you need to do is designate four points as the corners of the projected image, and this function automatically carries out horizontal and vertical keystone correction.

 

Multi-Screen Support System seamlessly connects multiple screens 

The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts multiple screens: Edge blending, color matching.

Edge Blending
The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.

Color Matching
This function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors.

 

Versatile interfaces and illuminated terminals and control panel 

The wide-ranging terminals include 2 sets of RGB inputs, an HDMI input, and a DVI-D input. Mounting the optional Interface Board ET-MD16SD1 also accommodates HD/SD-SDI signal input. The terminal connection area is LED illuminated, and a backlight is provided for the control panel buttons, ensuring smooth and easy operation in the dark.

 

Mechanical Shutter for a total screen blackout 

The Mechanical Shutter lets you mechanically block the light to completely blackout the screen, and prevents light leakage from the lens. When closing the shutter, the projection image gradually fades out, then gradually fades in when opening, which brings more attractive stage effects.

 

Easy remote control and observation 

A web browser on a computer connected through a wired LAN system lets you remotely operate projectors and check their status. An e-mail messaging function can also notify you when a lamp needs replacement, and indicate the overall projector status.  In addition, Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software is available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic projectors from a single PC.  The wired LAN terminal is compatible with PJLink™ (class1), an open protocol that is used by many manufacturers, to enable integrated control of systems that contain different brands of projectors.

 

Robust carrying handles 

An iron base plate is mounted to the bottom of the main unit. Also, robust carrying handles attached to the base plate are designed for easy carrying of the projector.

 

Top panel lamp replacement simplifies maintenance 

The lamp can be reached through the top panel for easy replacement. This eliminates the need to detach the projector from its mounting bracket in ceiling-mounted applications and greatly simplifies maintenance.

 

Other features 

  • Direct Power Off allows the power cord to be unplugged right after use.
  • Wireless and wired remote control that allows the allocation of up to 64 IDs.
  • Logo Transfer Software*3 lets you upload any startup logo you want.

*1 The values above are maximum values when they are used in cycles of being turned on for 2 hours and off for 0.25 hours.
When the lamps are turned on and off more frequently, the lamp replacement cycle is shortened. The usage environment affects the lamp replacement cycle.
*2 With the lamp power set to Normal. The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.
*3 Still images that can be uploaded are limited to 1,024 x 768 pixel bitmap files.  Also, the application reduces the number of colors to 191
