Panasonic PT-DZ780WU Overview

Enjoy bright images in most settings with the white Panasonic PT-DZ780WU 7000-Lumen WUXGA DLP Projector. It features up to 7000 lumens of brightness and a 3000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which work together to overcome light in most rooms and provide detail in dark areas of the image. Additionally, this projector sports WUXGA 1920 x 1200 native resolution for viewing detailed pictures or data.

The PT-DZ780WU includes a lens with a 1.7 to 2.4:1 throw ratio that can produce images from 50 to 600"; other lens options with varying throw ratio and screen size ranges are available separately. The PT-DZ780WU features BNC SDI, 5-BNC, VGA, DVI-D, and HDMI inputs. It is controllable via Ethernet with Crestron or AMX Device Discovery protocols, or the included IR remote control.

Key Features

  • Brightness of 7000 Lumens
  • WUXGA (1920 x 1200) Native Resolution
  • Includes 1.7 to 2.4:1 Lens
  • DIGITAL LINK Controllable via Ethernet
  • Crestron & AMX Device Discovery Control
  • IR Remote Included

High Brightness of 7000 Lumens

The light source features two 310W lamps to output up to 7000 lumens.

Designed for Quiet 30 dB Operation in Normal Mode

With an integrated airflow control system and cooling fans, operation noise is just 30 dB with both lamps used at full power in normal mode. The projector takes in air from the bottom and exhausts it at the back, eliminating openings in the front and sides to minimize noise leakage. The fans are also positioned to enable them to operate efficiently with slower rotation and less noise.

Dynamic RGB Booster Helps Enhance Brightness and Color Reproduction

Panasonic's Dynamic RGB Booster helps enhance image quality by combining Vivid Color Control technology with a Lamp Modulation Drive System to produce bright, vivid colors. Images are analyzed frame by frame, and scene-linking and real-time modulation are used to achieve high brightness and vivid color reproduction.

Detail Clarity Processor Helps Bring Deep, Clear Details

This image-processing circuit is designed to analyze the signal frequency range for each scene by extracting the data on the distribution of high-, mid-, and low-frequency components to bring out the details accordingly, resulting in a natural image with crisp detail.

Geometric Adjustment for Non-Rectangular Screens

This function adjusts the image for projection onto spherical, cylindrical, and other specially shaped screens. You can make the adjustment using just the remote control with no external equipment needed. Four-Corner Adjustment and Keep Aspect Off functions also help simplify fine adjustment.

Up to 4000 Hours of Lamp Life in Normal Mode

The lamps feature a replacement cycle of up to 4000 hours in normal mode to help lower the total cost of ownership.

Dust-Resistant Optical Block

The optical block is hermetically sealed to resist the effects of dust and other particles in the air, eliminating the need for air filters for the optics and helping to reduce the total cost of ownership.

Liquid Cooling for the DLP Chip

The onboard liquid cooling system is designed to directly cool the DLP chip to enhance performance and enable operation up to 113°F, allowing for use in a variety of environments while stabilizing performance and keeping the unit quiet.

Dual-Lamp System Helps Prevent Image Interruptions

In dual-lamp operation mode, interruptions are avoided if a lamp fails. The Lamp Relay mode also operates the lamps alternately to enable 24/7 projection.

DIGITAL LINK Transmits Digital Signals up to 492' over Ethernet

With the onboard DIGITAL LINK terminal, the PT-DZ780WU allows transmission of HDMI and control signals (Ethernet or RS-232C) up to 492' over a single Cat5e (STP) cable or higher. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it well suited for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations. A single-cable solution can be expanded with the optional ET-YFB200G switcher.

Geometry Manager Pro Freeware

The Geometry Manager Pro software offers a more flexible and complex geometric adjustment capability, and supports color matching and edge blending for multi-screen projection. It also makes adjustments for multiple projectors faster and easier over a network. Additionally, a computer can be used to operate this function, and up to three sets of adjustments can be stored.

Multi-Screen Support System Connects Multiple Screens

The Multi-Screen Support System adjusts multiple screens for edge blending, color matching, and digital image enlarging.

Lens Options Available

Choose from a selection of optional lenses for your system. The lens options make it easier to adapt the projector to the installation site. Lenses are designed to attach and detach with one-touch ease.

Compatible with Art-Net

The projector is compatible with the Art-Net protocol for lighting management, allowing you to connect the projector to your lighting console and operate its functions.
