The evolution of 3-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser culminates in the PT-RZ31K Series, a flagship forged by end-user experience with 31,000-lumen (Center/High Mode)*1 of brightness for rental/staging events. Convenient on-site rigging and dust-resistant optics push service-free projection beyond 20,000 hours*2 in Normal Mode for permanent installations. In every detail, these flagships make elite performance last longer.

*1 Luminance measured at center of screen in High Mode. Operation in High Mode may reduce maintenance timing in comparison to use in Normal Mode.
*2 At this time the brightness will have decreased to approximately 50 % of its original level (Normal Mode, Dynamic Contrast Mode: 3, Image Mode: Dynamic, IEC62087: 2008 Broadcast Content, dust density of 0.15 mg/m3). Optional Long Life Filter is required for continuous 20,000 hours operation. In High Mode, no maintenance required for 4,000 hours.
*3 Luminance measured in High Mode. Operation in High Mode may reduce maintenance timing in comparison to use in Normal Mode.
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.
Filter Replacement Period:
Supplied Filter: 2,000 hours (High Mode), 4,000 hours (Normal Mode)
Long Life Filter: 4,000 hours (High Mode), 20,000 hours (Normal Mode)
*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.
Long Life Filter includes an electrostatic Micro Cut Filter to collect minute dust particles with an ion effect. Combined with a dust-resistant cabinet, this enables 20,000 hours* of projection with no maintenance.
* Please refer to the specification for detail condition.
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.
SOLID SHINE Laser delivers superior screen brightness uniformity thanks to highly accurate white balance control. Brightness uniformity is greater than 90 % when measured at the corners, edges, and center of the screen.
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.
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. 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.

This Panasonic projector is compatible with active 3D projection technology. Click here to view information on 3D projection using a combination of external IR transmitter and active-shutter 3D glass. Please contact your sales representative for information on passive 3D projection.
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.
Eyebolts allow the projector to hang from a crane, simplifying rigging at large event venues for rental/staging professionals.
