1 The Dust Protected performance of this unit is not guaranteed to be free from damage or failure under all conditions (environment with conductive dust, etc.). Please use an enclosure in environments with smoke containing oil, salt, and moisture.

2 Around this time, the light output will have decreased by approximately 50 %. IEC62087: 2008 Broadcast Contents, NORMAL Mode, Dynamic Contrast [3], temperature 35 °C (95 °F), elevation 700 m (2,297 ft) with 0.15 mg/m3 of airborne particulate matter. Panasonic recommends a checkup at the point of purchase after about 20,000 hours. Light-source lifetime may be reduced depending on the environmental conditions. Replacement of parts other than the light source may be required in a shorter period. Estimated maintenance time varies depending on the environment.

Backup Input Redundancy

Two identical signals can be simultaneously transmitted to HDMI 1 (Primary) and HDMI 2 (Backup). If transmission to the primary input is interrupted, the projector switches to the backup automatically in a minimum of 0.3 seconds1 without screen-blanking. This layer of insurance gives greater peace of mind during events where image display can’t be interrupted.

Backup Input Redundancy

1 Varies depending on the Backup Input mode and the connected external device.

Note: Primary and backup terminal assignments are fixed. The input signals to primary and backup inputs must be identical.

Multi-Laser Drive Engine Enhances Reliability

Multiple laser modules are equipped with Failover Circuitry. In the unlikely event a single diode fails, Failover Circuitry continues to supply electricity to the functional diodes in the series, minimizing brightness loss. If the same issue were to occur in projectors without Failover Circuitry, all diodes in the module might shut down, resulting in a significant loss of brightness.

HMulti-Laser Drive Engine Enhances Reliability

Reduce Errors with Remote Preview LITE

Remote Preview LITE allows projectionists to confirm connectivity and assess image adjustments before the video is projected by viewing preview thumbnails on a laptop. This is valuable at live events where checking content on the screen is limited due to soundchecks or sunlight. Accessible via software or web browser, it works with the projector in Standby1 or with the shutter on, minimizing errors before performances.

Reduce Errors with Remote Preview LITE

1 Projector must be set to Pre-Show Mode.
