Projector Auto-Focus via Device’s Camera

* Auto Focus function may not be supported when using some mobile devices.

Geometric Adjustment with Free Grid Correction

PT-RZ990 Series benefits from a proprietary Free Grid function built into onboard Geometric Adjustment that supports grid-based image adjustment via remote control. Grid resolutions of 2 x 2, 3 x 3, 5 x 5, 9 x 9, or 17 x 17 can be projected and areas of the image reshaped or geometrically altered to fix screen distortion. This correction is performed by adjusting control-points at grid-line intersections. Move freely between grid resolutions to achieve the desired level of granularity without losing work progress. This clever data-saving function allows technicians to quickly create a distortion-free image.

Geometric Adjustment with Free Grid Correction

Expanded Lens Lineup Widens the Scope of Installation

Eleven optional interchangeable lenses cover every installation situation at wide throw-distances from 0.280:1 to 8.58:1. Compatible lenses include the ET-DLE020 Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens. As the world’s first* UST lens with optical zoom, a range of post-installation adjustments are enabled via zoom and V/H lens-shift with zero screen offset. The mirrorless, aspherical glass lens suits compact projector bodies to enable front- or rear-projection in spaces otherwise too small to support short-throw projection.

* For lenses with a 0.4:1 throw-ratio or less as of February 2019 according to internal research.

Supports 4K Signal Input

PT-RZ990 Series supports uncompressed 4K signal input* via HDMI® or DIGITAL LINK terminals. The ability to play Ultra HD video at the projector’s actual resolution is useful when the same signal is distributed to multiple endpoints of differing display resolutions, making the hassle and expense of external converters a thing of the past. These projectors fit your system infrastructure and work flawlessly with other 4K-ready display devices.

* Supports signals up to 4K/60p. 4K signals are converted to the projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) upon projection.

Separate LAN and DIGITAL LINK Terminals

Separate LAN and HDBase-T™-based DIGITAL LINK terminals allow 100Base-TX- and 10BaseT-compatible control signals via Panasonic, Crestron®, AMX, and Extron® applications to be assigned to a dedicated LAN connection, freeing the DIGITAL LINK pipeline for video over cable runs of up to 150 m (492 ft)*.

* 1080/60p signal transmission over distances up to 150 m (492 ft) requires CAT 5e or higher cable with optional ET-YFB200G DIGITAL LINK Switcher (not compatible with 4K signals) and the projector set to Long Reach Mode. Direct transmission is supported over distances up to 100 m (328 ft) for 1080/60p video signals or 50 m (164 ft) for 4K/60p video signals.

Reliable Even in Harsh Conditions

Filterless Projector Structure with Airtight Optical Block

Panasonic recommends cleaning or checkup at point of purchase after about 20,000 hours. Light-source lifetime may be reduced depending on environmental conditions. Replacement of parts other than the light source may be required in a shorter period. Estimated maintenance time varies depending on environment.

Dual Lasers for Failsafe Reliability

Dual laser optical engine groups diodes into two discrete modules. A redundancy circuit works to minimize brightness- and color-uniformity loss in the unlikely event a diode fails, making supported products ideal for applications where picture presentation must be maintained.

Backup Input Setting Protects Picture Display

Projectors can be configured to switch instantaneously to a backup input-signal should the primary signal be disrupted*. This layer of insurance is invaluable in control rooms, security and surveillance applications, and for live events where image projection must not be interrupted.

Backup Input Setting Protects Picture Display

* The combination of primary/secondary input terminals is fixed. Input switching occurs automatically when the signal to the primary input is disrupted or restored. Backup Input Setting is enabled only when the input signal to primary and secondary terminals is the same.
