Add filmlike projection to any venue with the PT-RQ13K, the world’s most easily handled 3-Chip DLP™ 4K+ projector. With Quad Pixel Drive rendering pixels invisible in 5120 x 3200 video, and outputting 10,000 lm of consistently high brightness, performance is spectacular. Pair with any lens from Panasonic’s 3-Chip DLP™ family and see how the PT-RQ13K’s small size and 360° installation saves time and money. And expect up to 20,000 hours*1 of maintenance-free operation at full power—just one of the ways we lower TCO for business operators.
PT-RQ13KLenses sold separately.

*1 At 20,000 hours, projector brightness will have decreased to approximately half of its original level (Dynamic Contrast Mode: 3, Image Mode: Dynamic). Panasonic recommends cleaning or checkup at point of purchase after every 20,000-hour period (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.
*2 Maximum physical resolution.
Combining 3-Chip DLP™ imaging with original SOLID SHINE Laser Phosphor technology, Panasonic 3-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser Series produces vividly colored pictures rich in detail with excellent brightness. Solid-state laser light sources and specially engineered heat-resistant phosphor wheels work together with three discrete DLP™ modules (R/G/B) for high brightness, true color accuracy, and high contrast in large venues.
3-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser projectors capture a more accurate color space than comparable laser projectors. Blue lasers ensure greater precision while an expanded color gamut improves white-balance accuracy.
Projector delivers up to 20,000 hours*1 maintenance-free service at full power with no filters to clean or replace*2 thanks to a fully sealed optical block and redesigned air intake. Energy consumption has also been reduced.
*1 At this time the brightness will have decreased to approximately half of its original level. Please refer specification for detail condition.
*2 Usage environment may affect filter maintenance cycle.
Dual-Drive Laser Optical Engine groups laser diodes into two discrete modules. A redundancy circuit works to minimize brightness- and color-uniformity loss should a laser diode fail, making supported products ideal for applications where picture presentation must be maintained.
Hermetically sealed laser modules and a refined air-intake system work to extend life and maintain picture quality in dusty locations. SOLID SHINE Laser products are tested against more severe guidelines than other projectors for stable operation in dusty environments containing 0.150 mg of particulate matter per cubic meter*.
* Dustproof tests are conducted to confirm operational effectiveness under conditions with 0.15 mg/m3 of particulate matter (based on tests by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers [ASHRAE], and the Japanese Building Maintenance Association). Measurements are made using acceleration tests.
A liquid cooling system for the light source features a new air intake and solid aluminum radiator to suppress temperature rises, allowing stable operation in high temperatures while reducing noise*.
* Please refer to product specifications for more details.
The Eco Filter incorporates an electrostatic Micro Cut Filter that collects minute dust particles using an ion effect. It joins with a dust-resistant cabinet to enable long-term use even in punishing conditions. A long maintenance cycle of up to 20,000 hours*1 reduces hassle, while the eco-friendly washable filter*2 can be reused.
*1 Usage environment may affect filter maintenance cycle.
*2 Please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions when washing filter with water. Replacement is recommended after filter has been washed and reused twice, or if filter is not sufficiently clean after washing.
Better-than-4K resolution is achieved by employing a high-speed 2560 x 1600-pixel (WQXGA) DMD chip that shifts each pixel vertically and horizontally, quadrupling the pixel-count. Working in concert with Real Motion Processor 240 Hz frame-creation, Quad Pixel Drive technology produces film-like 5120 x 3200-pixel (4K+/16:10) images. As well as silk-smooth video, this powerful processing engine renders text in the finest detail for lectures and presentations.
Shifting pixels vertically and horizontally creates ultra-high-resolution pictures that exceed standard Ultra HD resolution.
High-speed 240 Hz frame creation supports images up to 5120 x 3200 pixels (16:10) resolution.
* Resolution 5120 x 3200 pixels (maximum physical resolution).
Real Motion Processor uses sophisticated algorithms to create three additional frames for each image, boosting native 60 fps footage to 240 frames per second*1. The result is smooth and realistic motion rendering, particularly useful for broadcasting sporting events and other fast-paced video. Further, images can be displayed with SDI, DVI-D, and HDMI simultaneous inputs*2. A refined optical engine enhances focus performance for a lifelike sense of resolution, contrast, and fluidity.
*1 Refresh rate varies depending on vertical scanning frequency. Note that 240 Hz frame rate is downsampled to 60 Hz when projecting at 4K+ resolution.
*2 Geometric Adjustment and Upgrade Kit functions are not supported with simultaneous video signal input.
Panasonic’s next-generation circuit technology analyzes individual images frame by frame to clarify areas containing fine details and textures. Algorithms extract hidden information from super-high to low-frequency video bands, sharpening outlines, correcting contours, and reducing ringing noise to improve the sense of resolution. The technology includes an exclusive Refine Enhancer algorithm to further optimize detail reproduction in 4K+ images.
Direct laser power output modulation achieves high contrast with less power consumption. Digitally controlled frame-by-frame scene-linking modulation ensures precise output adjustment, while accurate 20,000:1* contrast is delivered even when bright and dark scenes frequently interchange.
* Please refer to the specification page for detail condition.
Panasonic’s premium System Daylight View 3 stops pictures washing out in bright light and enhances impact in mapping and multi-projector applications. It uses sensor information to adjust sharpness, manipulate gamma curves, and correct colors to suit on-site conditions.
Select your preferred operational mode to balance control brightness decline with brightness output according to the specific requirements of individual applications.
SOLID SHINE Laser technology enables free 360-degree installation through any axis. Together with powered lens shift and a wide range of optional lenses, the projector can be mounted in any way desired without picture distortion temporarily or in permanent applications.
Contrast Sync function, designed for multi-screen applications, allows dynamic contrast control to be synchronized for consistent picture quality across screens. Shutter Sync, meanwhile, synchronizes shutter on/off timing.
* Includes fade-in and fade-out effects. Projector shutter functions can be set to operate individually if desired.
Based on HDBaseT™ technology, DIGITAL LINK supports transmission of video, audio*1, and control commands through a single CAT 5e or higher STP cable for distances of 150 m (492 ft) for Full HD video and 50 m (164 ft) for 4K*2 video. An optional DIGITAL LINK Switcher or Digital Interface Box further simplifies installation in large venues while reducing cost and improving reliability.
*1 Audio transmission depending on model’s audio capability.
*2 ET-YFB200G/YFB100G is not compatible with 4K signals. 150 m (492 ft) transmission available only with ET-YFB200G DIGITAL LINK Switcher for signals up to 1080p in Long Reach Mode.
Projectors switch instantaneously to a backup input signal should the primary input signal be disrupted*, assuring image display is maintained at all times in venues such as control rooms and adding insurance at events where projection must not be interrupted.
* Combination of primary/secondary input terminals is fixed. Switching to secondary input (or primary input) occurs automatically when the input signal for primary input (or secondary input) is disrupted. The Backup Input Setting is enabled only when the input signal to primary and secondary terminals is the same.

Early Warning Software monitors the status of projectors and displays connected to an intranet, and informs the operator when an abnormality is detected or predicted, or when there are symptoms of trouble. This minimizes downtime to provide more stable operation.
Panasonic 3-Chip DLP™ projectors share a range of optional lenses, including ultra-short-throw lens and zoom lens for long throw distances, reducing cost of ownership for staging and event companies with large projector inventories.
