The 12,000 lm*1 PT-RZ120 is a first among 1-Chip DLP™ projectors. Further refinements to our high-quality imaging technology and filterless cooling system result in uncommonly high brightness from a compact body. Expect vibrant, high-contrast pictures and consistent color uniformity across multiple screens courtesy 1-Chip DLP™ technology and dual solid-state laser light engines. Hermetically sealed optics contribute to 20,000 hours*2 maintenance-free projection, enhancing installation flexibility in elevated positions such as museums, auditoriums, university halls, and even larger, brighter environments.

With next-generation DLP™ technology delivering high-resolution detail, dual laser modules for high brightness, Quartet Color Harmonizer to reduce energy loss from the light source, and robust heat-resistant phosphor wheel, Panasonic’s 1-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser system produces scintillating images with unfailing reliability.
Dynamic Light Control directly modulates laser output to achieve high contrast with less power consumption. Digitally controlled frame-by-frame scene-linking modulation ensures highly precise adjustment of light output, while accurate contrast is delivered even when bright and dark scenes frequently interchange.
Quartet Color Harmonizer wheel mechanism captures a wider color space than comparable projectors, allowing white to be reproduced more realistically on screen. Conventional projectors can’t achieve an accurate white balance, so images can appear with a distracting greenish cast. Not the case with the Panasonic 1-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser projectors.
This unique Panasonic circuitry optimizes the sharpness of each image based on information gathered from four frequency bands of the video signal. The resulting images are expressed with natural, convincing realism.
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.
A refined heat-sink-based cooling system and dust-resistant projector structure open the door to hermetically sealed optics. Now impervious to dust, air filters and associated maintenance are a thing of the past. This original filterless design contributes to 20,000 hours* of maintenance-free operation, useful when the projector is difficult to access.
* Around this time, light output will have decreased by approximately 50%. IEC62087: 2008 Broadcast contents, NORMAL Mode, Dynamic Contrast , under conditions with 35 °C (95 °F), 700 m (2,297 ft) above sea level, and 0.15 mg/m3 of particulate matter. Panasonic recommends cleaning or checkup at point of purchase after every 20,000-hour period (approximately). Estimated maintenance time varies depending on environment.
Dual laser drive groups diodes into discrete modules. A redundancy circuit minimizes brightness- and color-uniformity loss should a laser diode fail. Combined with durable phosphor wheels and Eco modes that extend life even further, the PT-RZ120 can operate 24/7 for long periods. Potential applications include surveillance, monitoring, signage, and public display.
Thanks to two long-lasting solid-state laser modules, there are no lamps to replace, and image color/brightness degrades very gradually in consistent, linear fashion. As well as reducing maintenance hassle, out-of-the-box picture quality is preserved for longer.
Extracting even higher brightness from a projector that’s the same size as our award-winning PT-RZ970/PT-RZ770 series, the RZ120 is easy to handle and designed to reduce installation labor.
The PT-RZ120/L supports uncompressed 4K video-signal input via HDMI® or DIGITAL LINK terminals. The ability to play Ultra HD video at the projector’s supported native resolution is useful in situations where the same premium video content is intended for playback on multiple 4K and non-4K projectors or displays. It saves operators the hassle of re-encoding source video and allows the PT-RZ120/L to be added to a projector network that includes 4K units, streamlining simultaneous playback of a single 4K video source on all compatible display devices.
Note: Images are converted to Full HD (1920 x 1080) upon video projection.
DIGITAL LINK transmits uncompressed video, audio*1, and control commands through a single CAT 5e or higher STP cable for distances of up to 150 m (492 ft)*2. Optional DIGITAL LINK Switcher or Digital Interface Box further simplifies installation, reduces cabling and associated costs, and enhances reliability.
*1 Audio transmission depending on model’s audio capability.
*2 150 m (492 ft) transmission available only with ET-YFB200G DIGITAL LINK Switcher for signals up to 1080p.
Separate terminals for LAN and DIGITAL LINK enhance versatility. Installers can assign 100Base-TX- and 10BaseT-compatible control signals via LAN terminal, freeing up DIGITAL LINK for video.
Data-cloning function allows various settings and configuration data*1 to be copied from a master projector to up to 99 slave projectors*2. Alternatively, the data can be cloned to slave projectors via LAN. This feature simplifies and expedites the setup process for multi-unit projection applications.
*1 Excludes passwords, projector name/ID, and network settings. *2 Data-cloning function supported on identical projectors only.
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.
Optimally adjusts multiple screens with edge blending, color matching, and digital image enlargement.
Edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.
Corrects color reproduction variations of each projector via PC control software.
Digital zoom up to 10X (H/V)*. Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended to create large multi-screen images.
* While input resolution will not change, maintaining image quality is not possible for images enlarged horizontally and vertically via the digital zoom function.
Sensors detect color and brightness apparent on screen. Projectors automatically calibrate for a uniform multi-screen image, adding a layer of convenience and cost saving for long-term events.
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.
Horizontal, vertical, and corner keystone correction adjusts the image shape for clear visibility when projecting off-axis or from an unusual angle. Curved Screen Correction allows for the projection of natural, distortion-free images onto curved or cylindrical surfaces.
Download free Geometry Manager Pro software to expand geometric and multi-screen setup and calibration capabilities via PC. The suite includes two upgrade kits that can be optionally unlocked with paid key codes. ET-UK20 adds uniformity correction and extensive creative masking capabilities. ET-CUK10 features Auto Screen Adjustment which enables simultaneous setup (including curved-screen correction) of multiple projectors for multi-screen applications using a compatible camera. This streamlines edge-blending, color-matching, black-level, stacking, and brightness uniformity calibration.
Note: Requires the latest firmware. Register your projector at PASS to update firmware, get free Geometry Manager Pro software for PC, obtain activation keys for ET-UK20 and ET-CUK10, and download a plug-in for ET-CUK10. Compatible cameras for ET-CUK10 comprise Panasonic AW-HE70/ AW-UE70 and Nikon D5200/D5300/D5500/D5600.

The laser light-source doesn’t require any time to warm up, so images appear almost instantly with projectors equipped with Quick Start/Quick Off function. There’s also no cool-down period when turning the power off at the mains—the projector can be turned on and off any time as necessary.
Smart Projector Control is a powerful smartphone app that enables remote operation of supported Panasonic projectors.
