Panasonic PT-EX520U Overview

Enjoy bright images in most settings with the Panasonic PT-EX520U 5300-Lumen XGA 3LCD Projector. It features up to 5300 lumens of brightness and a 2000:1 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 XGA 1024 x 768 native resolution for viewing detailed pictures or data.

The PT-EX520U includes a lens with a 1.32 to 2.44:1 throw ratio that can produce images from 40 to 400"; other lens options with varying throw ratio and screen size ranges are available separately. The PT-EX520U features 5-BNC, VGA, RCA composite video, and two HDMI inputs. It is controllable via Ethernet, RS-232, or the included IR remote control.

5300 Lumens of Brightness

With up to 5300 lumens of brightness, the PT-EX520U can produce clear images even in rooms with high ambient light.

Dynamic Contrast of 2000:1 with Iris Control

The 2000:1 dynamic contrast ratio is enabled by an iris mechanism, so whites are brighter and blacks deeper with minimal loss of detail in dark images for comfortable viewing.

XGA Resolution

The PT-EX520U features a native resolution of UXGA (1024 x 768), but supports resolutions up to Full HD for detailed image reproduction.

Daylight View Basic Helps Ensure Vivid Images in Bright Rooms

Daylight View Basic uses a built-in sensor to measure ambient light and calibrates image projection to suit, enhancing brightness and halftone color while sharpening details for easy-to-see pictures in well-lit environments.

DICOM Simulation Mode for Medical Presentations

The PT-EX520U offers a DICOM Simulation mode that allows the projector to simulate the results of devices compliant with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standardized display function, for display of grayscale images. The DICOM Simulation mode, which supports both Blue and Clear Base, adjusts the gradation between the minimum and the maximum luminance, so gradation is distributed optimally. This feature is optimized for displaying medical images such as X-rays, CAT scans, and MRIs, making the PT-EX520U useful for non-diagnostic purposes such as lectures, academic meetings, and hospital conferences. This feature is recommended for use in medical schools for training and educational use only.

Color Adjustment for Multi-Screen Projection

This function corrects subtle variations in the color reproduction range of individual units set up for multi-screen projection, particularly in side-by-side configuration.

Powered Lens Shift, Zoom, and Focus via the Remote Control

The adjustment range of the powered lens-shift function helps assure convenience and versatility during installation. Zoom and focus can also be adjusted via the remote control.

Project onto Curved Surfaces

Horizontal, Vertical, and Corner Keystone Correction adjust the image shape for clear visibility when projecting off-axis or from an unusual angle. Curved Screen Correction allows for the projection of distortion-free images onto curved or cylindrical surfaces.

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.

Mechanical Lens Shutter

A mechanical lens shutter prevents light leakage when the projector is on standby mode or temporarily not in use, such as periods during meetings.

Lens-Centered Design

A symmetrical lens-centered design reduces installation complexity and makes these projectors easier to adapt to a wider range of installation sites.

Project Wirelessly with Optional Module

The optional ET-WML100 wireless USB module enables projection of a variety of media via Windows computers, iOS devices, or Android devices loaded with an appropriate app. You can also display content from more than one device at a time in Multi-Live mode.
  • Presenter Light for Windows computers allows you to project stills, video, PDF and PowerPoint files, and other media from your computer screen directly through the projector. Up to four computers can be projected simultaneously.
  • VueMagic Pro for iOS and Android devices allows selected still image and document formats, including PDF files, to be projected. Live Camera mode and Annotate mode are featured, and images from up to four devices can be projected simultaneously.

Integrates into Existing AV Infrastructure

With support for PJLink Class 1, Crestron Connected, AMX, and RS-232C over wired LAN, virtually any legacy unit can be swapped out for a PT-EX520U projector without disrupting existing control and management infrastructure. Emulation via RS-232C allows your original settings to be preserved. In addition, Multi-Monitoring and Control software are available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic projectors from a single computer.

Extended Lamp Replacement Cycle

The PT-EX520U projector features a lamp replacement cycle up to 5000 hours with the lamp power set to Eco mode, or up to 4000 hours with the lamp power set to Normal mode.

Dust-Resistant Cabinet and Eco Filter

The PT-EX520U is designed to protect against dust intrusion with a one-way airflow design and enhanced sealing for the lens block, air intake duct, and Eco Filter. The electrostatic Micro Cut Filter is engineered to capture dust particles and requires no maintenance for up to 15,000 hours. It can also be washed and reused. It is designed to maintain brightness for longer in high-traffic environments while reducing servicing costs.

Eco Management

A variety of Eco Management functions are accessible via a button on the remote control. These include brightness optimization for ambient lighting conditions and lamp power reduction when no input signal is detected.

Quiet Operation in Eco Mode

The quiet design reduces operating noise to just 29 dB in Eco mode.

Easy-Access Lamp and Filter

To reduce hassle, the filter can be replaced via the side and the lamp from the top of the projector. There is no need to remove the unit from its ceiling mount for periodic maintenance.

Additional Features

  • Power-saving Eco Standby mode draws just 0.3W
  • Direct Power Off enables safe projector shutdown via a breaker switch
  • Anti-theft measures include security bar, password protection, and personalized startup logo
