Panasonic has unveiled a new beyond 4K resolution 3-Chip DLPTM laser projector with 27,000* lumens of brightness, at InfoComm 2016.

Designed for events, staging and rental applications, the PT-RQ32K develops 27,000 centre lumens at 5120 x 3200 resolution.

The 240 Hz projector incorporates Panasonic’s unique pixel-shifting quad pixel drive technology and enables flexible projection by supporting existing optional lenses and advanced image-adjustment capabilities.

A laser light source and an original heat-resistant phosphor wheel design maintain consistent image quality, colour and brightness, particularly useful when using multiple projectors.

Hartmut Kulessa, European Projector Marketing Manager at Panasonic, said, “Panasonic has been particularly strong in producing high brightness projectors over recent years. The RQ32K is a great addition to the line-up and joins two high-brightness laser projectors with 31,000 lumens (centre) in WUXGA (PT-RZ31K) and SXGA+ (PT-RS30K).”

The need for custom mounting-frames has been eliminated with frame-free stacking or eye-bolt rigging, reducing overall weight for transportation and easy installation of temporary multi-projection mapping projects.

The projector also includes a quick on/off mechanical and laser light source hybrid shutter and power management functions to ensure smooth, energy-efficient operation.

The RQ32K is set for release in January 2017.
