SOLID SHINE series uses the newly developed LED/Laser-combined light source
SOLID SHINE series projectors provide solid reliability and long-lasting brightness unprecedented by conventional lamp-based projectors.
Approximately 20,000 hours*1 of maintenance-free operation
Long-lasting picture quality
Quick start, quick off
Long-Lasting Reliability and High Picture Quality
The LED/Laser-Combined Light Source Enables Approx. 20,000*1 Hours of Continuous Operation
This new light source requires no maintenance for approximately 20,000 hours. *1 In many cases, this means no maintenance until your next refresh cycle. Naturally, there are no lamp burnout problems during use, so reliability is further increased. There is also no filter to clean due to carefully engineered sealed optics. As a consequence, running cost is dramatically lowered because of the savings on lamp costs, maintenance labor and hassle of stocking lamps.
Bright, Beautiful Picture Quality for a Long Period of Time
The PT-RZ370/RW330 features 3,500 lumens of brightness. Rate of brightness deterioration in the LED/Laser-combined light source is extremely slow compared to lamp based projectors. The SOLID SHINE drive uses a built-in sensor to constantly detect the light intensity of the light source and correct corresponding changes in white balance. This all helps to maintain excellent picture quality for a long period of time. Contrast is outstanding too, at 10,000:1, and images are reproduced with a wide dynamic range. The PT-RZ370 features a Full-HD (1920×1080) DLP™ chip, allowing highly detailed Full-HD images without resizing.
Superior Color Reproduction
The LED/Laser-combined light source has a higher level of color purity than an ordinary lamp, allowing it to achieve color production with wider color space. Colors are more vibrant than those of conventional projectors.
30x Drive*3 Switching Prevents Color Breaking
In 1-chip DLP™ system projectors with conventional lamp, a color wheel is used for time-division multiplexing in a method where the human eye combines the result to achieve a full-color palette. In the PT-RZ370/RW330, this is done by on/off switching of the LED/Laser-combined light source. A unique Panasonic power supply circuit provides time-division multiplexing with ultrafast 30x drive.*3 The resulting, high-definition images exhibit virtually no color breaking.*4
|Heat Pipe Cooling System Maintains Stable Operation up to 45 °C (113 °F)*5
Laser cooling is performed by releasing the heat to cooling fins, then cooling with a heat pipe cooling system. This suppresses temperature rises inside the projector and allows stable operation up to an ambient temperature of 45 °C (113 °F).*5 The use of this heat pipe-cooled system also achieves quiet operation of 29 dB,*6 enabling viewers to concentrate on thepresentation or on quiet movie scenes.
Dust-Resistant Structure with an Airtight Optical Block
The area between the LED/Laser to the DLP™ chip and prism is hermetically sealed to form an airtight structure for the optical block, the heart of the projector. This resists the effects of dust and other particles in the air, and enables use of the projector in a wide range of environments.
The Daylight View Basic Ensures Clear Images Even in Brightly Lit Rooms
PANASONIC Daylight View Basic TECHNOLOGY achieves sharp, easy-to-see images by clearly reproducing the details in dark image areas, which were previously difficult to see in brightly lit rooms. A built-in sensor measures the ambient light, and the Daylight View Basic function adjusts the halftone color and brightness level according to the surrounding illumination.
