Quad Pixel Drive for Detail-rich 4K Images with High Frame Rates

Quad Pixel Drive, Panasonic’s original 2-axis pixel-quadrupling technology, rapidly shifts each pixel vertically and horizontally to produce sharp, clear, and detail-rich 4K images for a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels (16:9). Combined with the DMD’s high pixel-density and narrow aperture ratio, Quad Pixel Drive creates smooth, filmlike images with a superior sense of depth and definition, allowing viewers to retain complex information.

Pixel Quadrupling Technology

Rich Color Enhancer Produces Vivid, Accurate Colors

Rich Color Enhancer is an original Panasonic color optimization technology for 1-Chip DLP™ projectors that offers two selectable modes. Dynamic Mode balances brightness and color for clear image visibility in well-lit environments. Standard/Graphic Mode optimizes color reproduction performance by adjusting color-wheel timing to expand red-channel output, leading to more naturally vibrant red expression. Colors are deep, rich, and accurate, faithfully reflecting the content creator’s artistic intent.

Smooth Playback of 240 Hz Content

The projector smoothly plays 240 Hz/1080p video content with a minimal input-to-output latency of just 8 ms or less1, perfect in any application where fast response and fluid motion are important. PT-FRQ60 Series also works with Panasonic’s optional ET-SWR102 Real-Time Tracking
Projection-Mapping System, a ready-to-use Software Development Kit (SDK) that enables image projection onto fast-moving objects at up to 240 fps, making it easy to add lifelike interactivity to your museum exhibit.

1 Display frame rate corresponds to the input signal frame rate. Geometric adjustment features must be disabled.
2 ET-SWR10 is used in conjunction with third-party devices (sold separately). Compatibility with third-party devices cannot be guaranteed. Other limitations apply. For more information, visit the ET-SWR10 webpage.

Dynamic Contrast Elevates Image Realism

Dynamic Contrast directly modulates light output to achieve high contrast with less power consumption. Digitally controlled frame-by-frame
scene-linking modulation ensures precise light output adjustment for accurate contrast even when bright and dark scenes frequently interchange.

Flexible, Simple to Use, and Easy to Integrate

Flexible 2.0x Zoom Lens with Wide-Range V/H Lens-Shift

Versatile 2.0x optical zoom lens clears a path to stress-free installation by expanding throw-distance flexibility, giving you more freedom to choose a mounting position for the projector. Wide-range V/H Lens-Shift (Vertical: +71 %, -48 % and Horizontal: +34 %, -27 %) locates the image as desired when the ideal projector placement isn’t possible, such as in rooms with high ceilings or for projection at an angle. Adjustments are easily performed via joystick on the front panel.

Geometric Adjustment with Free Grid for Screen Adjustment via Remote Control

Free Grid simplifies operation of select Geometric Adjustment functions built into the projector. Using only the projector remote control, with no need of a connected PC, installers can correct image distortion caused by uneven surfaces or irregular objects on flat or curved screens. A grid is overlaid on the projected image, allowing the installer to reshape distorted areas by adjusting the position of node or V/H line control-points. Grids of 2 x 2,
4 x 4, 8 x 8, or 16 x 16 lines are selectable according to required granularity, and work progress is saved automatically. Grid and control-point colors are selectable to ensure clear visibility over the image.

Geometric Adjustment with Free Grid Correction via Remote Control

Remote Preview Lite

Remote Preview Lite1 allows the projectionist to check signal connectivity and to evaluate changes to the image when selected projector image adjustment settings are changed by previewing input video on a laptop screen. Remote Preview Lite works even when the projector is in Standby Mode and eliminates need for on-screen projection immediately before the presentation commences. It reduces chance of display issues before the performance, and if an error is detected, helps narrow down the possible cause to the input signal chain.
