Applications for our 8,500–10,000-lumen RZ970 Series laser projector lineup extend from education, exhibition, and signage through to events and staging. With a shared design philosophy, these compact 1-Chip DLP™ projectors deliver picture quality approaching that of our 3-Chip DLP™ models while retaining flexibility for a stress-free installation. The series not only leads the field in outright image quality; it also provides the stable, consistent, low-maintenance performance that professional users demand.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Select your preferred operational mode to balance control brightness decline with brightness output according to the specific requirements of individual applications.
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.
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.
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. Compatible cameras for ET-CUK10 comprise Panasonic AW-HE70/ AW-UE70 and Nikon D5200/D5300/D5500/D5600.

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 1-Chip DLP™ projectors share a family 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.
