Higher brightness and improved efficiency alongside recyclable components make the Panasonic MZ882 projector series the sustainable choice.

Tokyo, Japan – Panasonic Connect Co., Ltd. announced its most sustainable projector to date with the introduction of the LCD MZ882 Series at ISE 2024. With brightness up to 8,200lm, the MZ882 Series sets a new benchmark for visual quality in education and workspaces while placing a strong emphasis on sustainability and cost performance.

The MZ882 Series represents a milestone in the company’s effort to reduce the carbon footprint of its products, for the first time including recycled resins (10%) in the main projector unit and featuring recyclable components throughout. The projector, which minimizes waste through a reduction in packaging and related accessories, introduces energy-saving innovations while delivering the bright, sharp images in well-lit rooms that customers have come to expect.

“This is another important step in our journey to making all Panasonic’s products as sustainable as possible,” said Hartmut Kulessa, European Marketing Manager for Visual System Solutions at Panasonic Connect Europe. “By transitioning to this flexible projector, organizations can reduce energy consumption, waste, and carbon footprint in line with their Sustainable Development Goals.”

Optimised to Reduce Waste and Carbon Footprint

The Series’ refined optical engine boosts brightness over the existing MZ880 Series with an up to 8.7% increase in lm/W efficiency. The MZ882 Series also introduces an intelligent auto power-on function, starting projection upon signal detection and minimizing continuous projector operation during presentations. To limit waste, the ECO Filter can be washed and reused twice, while light source and filter maintenance is recommended at 20,000 hours.

Bright and Sharp Viewing Comfort

With optimally balanced color and brightness, the MZ882 Series produces sharp, detailed images in well-lit spaces for clear visibility that’s easier on the eyes. Image realism and energy efficiency are further enhanced by Dynamic Contrast delivering a high 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio with scene-linked modulation control to the light source.

Detail Clarity Processor 4 analyses the video signal through each scene for an improved sense of clarity. Daylight View Basic measures the environmental lighting and performs real-time corrections to enhance brightness perception and optimise energy use. For multi-screen applications, the projector supports Shutter Sync and Contrast Sync functions and is compatible with Panasonic’s Geometry Manager Pro software.

Streamlined Workflow and Smooth UX

Quiet 27dB operation reduces distractions and keeps participants focused on the presentation. Widescreen 21:9 aspect ratios are supported to suit immersive conferencing layouts or to display documents side-by-side. A new projector posture detection function minimises installation time and reduces the personnel involved in the installation process, contributing to a more streamlined and resource-friendly workflow. A selection of six optional lenses, including the ELU20 ( Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens, supports wide-range powered lens shift to adapt the projection to any layout seamlessly.

The MZ882 Series will be available from CY2024 Q2.
