Panasonic Australia will introduce its new laser projector range at Integrate this year, with the flagship PT-RQ22K laser projector featuring a 3-Chip DLP, 4K+ resolution and 21,000lm brightness to deliver film-like picture reproduction.
Chris Maw, Product Marketing Manager, Projectors and Displays, Panasonic Australia, said: “We’re excited to showcase our latest innovations, with the new projectors making their Australian debut at Integrate 2018, the country’s largest AV expo. It’s clear with our latest range that we are continuing to push the limits and create best-in-class tailored solutions to meet our customers’ needs.”
A creative and unique addition for Panasonic at Integrate 2018 will be a dome projection demonstration, featuring the ET-D3LEF70 fisheye lens, intuitively designed for applications such as planetariums, theme-park attractions and theatres to give viewers a thrilling immersive experience. With an angle of view up to 183°, the fisheye lens is also an efficient solution, making it possible to cover a dome distortion-free using a single projector.
The company’s slim and durable 4K panels will also be demonstrated in an ‘art gallery’ style scenario to provide potential customers with a vision of the latest capabilities in 4K display.
Chris Maw added: “Panasonic has a strong heritage in the projector and display space, and we feel that our innovative and reliable 2018 range will help continue to build our reputation in this market.”
The new PT-RQ22K is designed to operate maintenance-free for 20,000 hours and still deliver incredible brightness in a ‘compact in its class’ design. The simple and flexible ‘24/7’ projection is an ideal solution for education institutions and rental, staging and large venue installations such as museums and exhibitions.
The PT-RQ22K also possesses 20,000:1 contrast ratio to ensure excellent picture quality, and where absolute reliability is critical, the projector has a dual light engine with redundancy circuits should a laser diode fail, making brightness loss imperceptible
Integrate 2018 takes place from 22-24 August at the International Convention Centre, Darling Harbour, Sydney.
