San Paulo, Brazil - Panasonic launched new models of projectors at Tecno Multimedia Infocomm 2015, the country's leading trade show for the Audio, Video, Lighting and Integrated Professional Systems industry, held on May 12, 13 and 14 in Sao Paulo at the Imigrantes Expo Center. With a 72 sq. m stand, the company carried out demonstrations of the projectors that are being considered for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and innovative solutions for retailers.
One of the major innovations in projectors is the Space Player (PT-JW130), a Panasonic exclusive which projects video and images on or around an object. The equipment doesn't take up very much space and allows for projection and illumination. It's an enticing solution for retailers, shops, restaurants, and museums, which can adapt it to create special lighting in any environment, in window displays or to project menus, for example. Compact, light, small and easy to install and uninstall, the projector can be moved from place to place with ease. Its functionality can be seen at a company restaurant located in the Panasonic Center in Osaka. Check out the demonstration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOLPyxbeHww
The brand also demonstrated a projection mapped onto a pool with the PT-DZ21KU model, a 3-chip DLP projector delivering 20,000 lumens that was used in the London 2012 Olympic Games, together with the ETD75LE90 ultra-short distance lens with a throw ratio of 0.36, a new product by Panasonic that allows for the installation of equipment just 1.5 meters from the projection surface to create an image the size of 200 inches.
Another project launch is the PT-RZ12K projector, a 3-chip DLP (which produces a larger array of colors than 1-chip projectors) that is the lightest in the world. It works using lasers, eliminating the need for lamps, and has a service life of 20,000 hours, which demonstrates how using advanced technology guarantees a longer lifespan for equipment. Its WUXGA resolution guarantees the maximum amount of detail and precision for computer-based images, is compatible with the 1920 x 1200 pixel format and, for video applications, produces excellent Full HD quality in the 1920 x 1080 format. The model produces 12,000 lumens, which increases the brightness of large-scale images, making it perfect for shows and events, and has a frame-rate of 120Hz and a high-speed image processor, guaranteeing projection quality.
The ET-YFB200 Digital Link Switcher allows for the connection of various types of video cable (HDMI, VGA, Composite Video, Data) to a single cable output (CAT5e or CAT6) for up to 100m, and the capacity to transmit video in WUXGA resolution. It reduces the complexity of event set-up and the number of cables strewn across the floor, providing a cleaner and more organized environment.
"The category of projectors is one of the product segments that the company is prioritizing this year, in line with the global strategy of focusing on products for the B2B market, which includes the creation of a new logo for this segment. It's part of our Olympic sponsorship - that is, all of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games projectors will be Panasonic. This factor will certainly help us in expanding our business in Brazil, winning over new clients," says Sergio Constantino, Broadcasting Manager at Panasonic do Brasil.
