Panasonic Introduces Four New DLP Projectors Packed with Enhanced Technology to Deliver High-Quality Experience

Panasonic Projector Systems Company, Unit of Panasonic Corporation of North America, announced the introduction of four new DLP®* projectors today at InfoComm 2006, in Orlando adding to their extensive line of projector systems.

Among the models being introduced are the PT-D5600 and PT-DW5000, which are ideal for classrooms, conference rooms, control rooms and churches, and the new large venue PT-D10000 and PT-DW10000, which build upon the current Panasonic D7000 series projectors. The new D10000 series feature a new, multiple UHM lamp design requiring lower power consumption and increased reliability.

Panasonic’s new projectors offer advanced technology that enhance the already high image quality of the DLP chip found in many of its current line of products. Each new unit will further extend Panasonic’s ability to provide increased reliability to its diverse customer base.

“Our new projectors demonstrate Panasonic’s leadership in providing tools that enable unparalleled experience, collaboration and multimedia support to our customers,” said Thomas Zitelli, President of Panasonic Projector Systems Company. “We are focused on delivering high quality, reliable and easy-to-operate products that give our customers a competitive advantage in the boardroom, classroom, control room and venues large and small.”

Each new model includes Panasonic's liquid-cooling system that directly cools the DMD chip, providing the reliability needed for 24/7 operation1. The cooling system also reduces the number of fans needed, so operating noise is greatly reduced. Additionally, each have a 3D-Color Management System to improve brightness of previous models by 15%, resulting in sharper, cleaner color reproduction. They also include a dustproof design featuring a sealed optical block.

“Panasonic has incredible experience introducing advanced technologies for multiple markets including government, higher education, and large and small venues, and we are a leader in the deployment of DLP projectors in cinema theatres worldwide,” added Zitelli. “Our projectors are currently operating in more than 1,200 theatres and we a have unique point of view that centers on developing the right products to meet market demands.”

Panasonic also will provide premium service offerings to its customers, including a no-hassle maintenance program and 2-year extended warranty to optimize performance, which includes replacement of fans and filters. Panasonic is also planning to implement advance warning systems for customers as part of its new premium services through a new remote monitoring capability. This will enable Panasonic to receive status notifications about the status of projectors that reside on a customer’s network and provide service recommendations to address issues or repairs. For more information about the new models at InfoComm visit the Panasonic booth #1901. For more information on Panasonic’s complete line of projectors, visit or phone 888-411-1996.

NEW PRODUCT INFORMATION PT-D10000 & PT-DW10000- Panasonic’s new large venue PT-D10000 and PT-DW10000 have a lightweight design to keep a low profile while delivering the features to give high power projection users the reliability they need including multiple lamps that ensure the show can go on.

It follows in the footsteps of the D7000 series giving customers the benefit of improved light output and image processing, and the ability to make use of the same lenses and optical input modules as the D7000 series. It offers high contrast ratios by applying Panasonic’s exclusive dynamic iris and advanced image processing for cinema, video and computer-generated picture presentation. Additionally, the adoption of the new PJLink standard Ethernet control protocol ensures customers easy integration with other manufacturer’s control interfaces. Similarly, the PT-DW10000 is a full HD resolution (1920x1080) version and serves as a leading solution for video and cinema customers. Availability: Q4 of 2006

It also offers powerful sensing to monitor performance and leverages Panasonic’s Vivid Color Control to deliver high quality images. The screen size is 50-600 inches and it weighs in at 32 pounds when the supplied power/focus zoom lens is attached. Its panel size is 0.7” diagonal and its resolution is 1024x768 pixels (1600x1200 pixels compatible, compression mode).
