With Panasonic’s award-winning SOLID SHINE Laser drive at its heart, together with the latest DLP™ imaging technology, the PT-RZ660 is primed to deliver unfailingly brilliant pictures in a broad range of venues and applications. Set brightness according to ambient conditions and extend maintenance-free life further, with minimal degradation in picture brightness and realism, or exploit a raft of features that make rigging, rental, and staging easier and more cost effective. A lightweight heavy-hitter with stamina to last, it’s the logical choice for educated pro users.
Thanks to the long-lasting dual solid-state laser modules, there are no lamps to replace, and image colour/brightness degrades very gradually in consistent, linear fashion. As well as reducing maintenance hassle, out-of-the-box picture quality is preserved longer.
Dual Drive Laser Optical Engine groups laser diodes into two discrete modules. A fail-safe redundancy circuit works to minimize brightness- and colour-uniformity loss should a laser diode fail, making PT-RZ660 ideal for mission-critical applications. Further, brightness decreases more gradually and consistently than lamp-based projectors over a 20,000-hour maintenance-free projection period. Panasonic recommends cleaning or check-up at point of purchase after 20,000 hours (approximately). 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.
The PT-RZ660 has a unique liquid-cooling system for the light source that suppresses temperature rises, enhancing projection stability in ambient temperatures of up to 45°C. This cooling system also contributes to the reduction of operational noise to just 35 dB for distraction-free presentations, and is hermetically sealed, so there’s no need to periodically replenish the coolant.
Panasonic laser light is no more harmful to eyesight than a regular lamp-based projector, as a diffusing lens reduces beam energy concentration. Accidental direct exposure will not result in damage to eyesight.
The PT-RZ660 directly modulates laser power output to achieve high contrast with low power consumption. Digitally controlled frame-by-frame scene-linking modulation ensures highly precise output adjustment, while accurate 10,000:1 contrast is delivered even when bright and dark scenes frequently interchange.
In Normal Mode, the PT-RZ660 can operate continuously for about 20,000 hours. In Eco Mode, this is extended to around 24,000 hours of continuous operation. These modes enhance suitability for education and signage applications.
The PT-RZ660 is among the world’s first to feature Contrast Sync and Shutter Sync functions (Patent Pending) for multi-screen and mapping applications. Contrast Sync allows the projectors’ digitally modulated contrast function to be synchronized over the network for consistent picture quality across screens, while Shutter Sync incorporates a master/slave principle to synchronize shutter on/off timing between all networked projectors. It includes simultaneous fade-in and fade-out functions. Note: Use of RS-232C straight cable is necessary for all connections.
Optimally adjusts multiple screens with edge blending and colour matching. Edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled. Corrects for slight variations in the colour reproduction range of individual projectors. PC software assures easy, accurate control.
This function automatically corrects brightness and colour fluctuations that occur over time in individual projectors in a multi-screen system. Control up to eight projectors connected via hub increasing to a maximum of 2,048 projectors with Multi Monitoring & Control Software.
Geo Adjustment adapts the image for projection onto spherical, cylindrical, and other specially shaped screens. Fine-tuning is performed with the remote control, with no external equipment needed. Paired with Multi-Screen Support System, highly creative mapping presentations are possible in variety of event and staging applications.
This feature allows smooth switching to a backup input signal should the primary signal be disrupted*, guaranteeing reliability for mission-critical control rooms, projection mapping, staging, and in other applications where image display must be maintained. (* Combination of primary/secondary input terminals is fixed. The Backup Input Setting is enabled only when the input signal to the primary and secondary terminals is the same.)
Projection is possible in any direction vertically and horizontally, and the unit can be rotated 360 degrees for installation at any angle.
The PT-RZ660 shares optional lenses with Panasonic 1-Chip DLP™ projector range, including the ET-DLE030 Ultra-Short-Throw Lens and ET-DLE085 Zoom Lens for long throw distances, reducing TCO for staging and event companies with large projector inventories. Lenses attach and detach with one-touch ease.
PT-RZ660 is compatible with Art-Net DMX protocol for lighting management. This allows the projector to be connected to a lighting console, opening the door to a range of added functionality and control options. The included LAN/DIGITAL LINK terminal also supports Crestron Connected™ and PJLink™ (Class 1) for seamless integration of PT-RZ660 projectors into an existing AV network utilizing multiple device brands.
