3-Chip DLP™ Solid Shine™ Laser Technology
Combining SOLID SHINE Laser with next-generation 3-Chip DLP™ processing technology, the PT-RZ21K develops 21,000 lumens1 of brightness with truly spectacular color performance superior to other lamp-based products. Dual solid-state laser light-sources and dual heat-resistant phosphor wheels work with three DLP™ modules (R/G/B) for intense brightness, true color accuracy, and high contrast on large screens.

Lightweight1 and Compatible
Building on the legacy of the best-selling PT-DZ21KU projector, the PT-RZ21K weighs only 108lbs and requires just 2 people to move it. For Rental and Staging professional, this means easier transport and reduced man-power time and cost. The PT-RZ21K joins the Panasonic 3-Chip DLP™ projector family in sharing a range of mutually compatible optional accessories including frames and ultra-short-throw and zoom lenses. This reduces upgrade or replacement costs for events and staging companies with large inventories.
130-45% lighter than competition based on specification analysis.
Sealed and Dustproof Optical Engine in a Filterless Projector
The Panasonic PT-RZ21K is the world’s first 3-Chip DLP™ laser projector1 to eliminate need for a consumable air filter, enabling maintenance-free operational life of 20,000 hours2 for the whole projector. This is achieved with a fully sealed optical engine and heat-sink-based internal cooling system with a one-way air-flow. Hermetically sealed laser modules, durable filtering, and refined air-intake allows the projector to operate continuously for long periods in hot, dusty, and smoky environments common to large-scale events without regular maintenance, saving operators considerable time and money. Product testing against severe guidelines assures stable operation in environments containing 0.150 mg of dust per cubic meter3. With no filter replacement, light-source guaranteed for 20,000 hours, and controlled, linear picture degradation, the PT-RZ21K leads the field for low TCO. continuously for long periods in hot, dusty, and smoky environments common to large-scale events without regular maintenance, saving operators considerable time and money. With no filter replacement, light-source guaranteed for 20,000 hours, and controlled, linear picture degradation, the PT-RZ21K leads the field for low TCO.

2 Operation hour varies dependent on environment and is simulated based on Dynamic Contrast “3” with IEC62087:2008 Broadcast Content.
3 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.
Free 360-degree Orientation
SOLID SHINE Laser enables free 360-degree installation through any axis. Together with powered lens shift and wide range of optional lenses, the PT-RZ21K can project images from any orientation without picture distortion.
The new, patent-pending Dynamic Contrast Sync
This feature provides linked 20,000:1 contrast across groups of projectors using simple BNC cable loop-thru, streamlining multi-unit installations. Shutter Sync, meanwhile, synchronizes shutter on/off timing.
IP configuration in standby through the side LED display
This feature means the projector doesn’t need to be turned on to configure the network, simplifying setup.
Low Power Consumption
Due to the projectors’ low power consumption despite its high lumen output, users can operate two PT-RZ21K projectors on single 220 volt/30 amp circuit. In fact, these powerful, flexible projectors can even operate on a 100-120 volt range circuit (with a drop in brightness).
Detail Clarity Processor 5
Proprietary circuitry analyzes individual video frames to identify and clarify 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.
