* At this time, brightness will have decreased to approximately half of its original level (Dynamic Contrast Mode: 3, Image Mode: Dynamic). Usage environment affects light-source lifespan. Panasonic recommends cleaning or checkup at point of purchase after approximately 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.
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.
With proprietary optical drive system optimized for the light source, efficient cooling systems, and lightweight yet tough cabinet materials, these projectors achieve high brightness in units that are smaller, lighter, and easier to handle.
Real Motion Processor interpolates images for a 120 Hz* frame-rate. Smooth, stutter-free 120 Hz* reproduction is also possible using simultaneous inputs (two 3G-SDI inputs or DVI-D/HDMI combination). Together with a refined optical engine that enhances focus, Real Motion Processor delivers a better sense of resolution, contrast, and fluidity of motion.
* Refresh-rate varies depending on vertical scanning frequency.
Proprietary circuitry analyzes individual video frames to identify and clarify areas of the image containing fine details and textures. Algorithms pull information from four frequency bandwidths, from super-high to low, to sharpen outlines, correct contours, and reduce ringing noise.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
