Panasonic RZ120BU Overview

Brighten up your presentations with the black PT-RZ120BU 12,600-Lumen WUXGA DLP Projector from Panasonic. Boasting a 12,000-lumen output and a 10,000:1 dynamic contrast, this projector is designed to overcome ambient light even in relatively bright rooms so that images are sharp and crisp all across. The projector's 1920 x 1200 WUXGA native resolution enables you to display detailed video, pictures, and data. The preinstalled standard lens provides a 1.7 to 2.4:1 throw ratio, enabling placement and screen-size flexibility while ensuring focused images. Various interchangeable lenses are available separately for a variety of additional throw ratio choices.

The PT-RZ120BU features HDMI, VGA, 3G-SDI, DVI-D, and HDBaseT inputs, allowing for connectivity to nearly any device. The projector can be controlled via the included wireless/wired remote control, HDBaseT, or RS-232 with various control software options.

1-Chip DLP Technology with Solid Shine Lasers

The PT-RZ120BU uses dual solid-state lasers and phosphor wheels to project immersive 12,000-lumen images at WUXGA resolution. Delivering high color accuracy and contrast as well as consistent color uniformity, the PT-RZ120BU is suitable for large-format multi-screen projection.

System Daylight View 3

System Daylight View 3 helps prevent images from washing out in well-lit environments, enhancing brightness perception in multi-projector mapping applications by adjusting sharpness and gamma curves and correcting colors for an augmented visual impact.

Dust-Resistant Airtight Optical Block

The optical block is airtight, which helps to ensure consistent image quality for up to 20,000 hours without maintenance.

Selectable Operational Modes Help Maintain Image Quality

In Normal Mode, the projector can operate continuously for up to 20,000 hours. In Eco Mode, this is extended up to 24,000 hours of continuous operation. These modes enhance suitability for education and signage applications.

Engineered for Stable 24/7 Operation with Light Source Failover Protection

The dual-drive laser optical engine groups laser diodes into two discrete modules. A fail-safe redundancy circuit works to minimize loss of brightness uniformity and color uniformity if a laser diode fails, making the projector suitable for mission-critical applications.

4K Signal Input Support

The PT-RZ120BU supports uncompressed 4K signal input via HDMI or DIGITAL LINK.
Images are converted to Full HD (1920 x 1080) upon video projection.

Single-Cable DIGITAL LINK Solution

Upward HDBaseT-compatible DIGITAL LINK supports transmission of uncompressed video and control commands through a single Cat5e or higher STP cable for distances up to 492' at Full HD or 164' at 4K resolution. An optional DIGITAL LINK Switcher or Digital Interface Box can further simplify installation in large venues while reducing cost and improving reliability.

Separate LAN / DIGITAL LINK Terminals

Separate terminals for LAN and DIGITAL LINK enhance versatility. 100Base-TX- and 10BaseT-compatible control signals can be assigned to the LAN terminal, freeing up the DIGITAL LINK terminal for video.

Data Cloning

Using the built-in data-cloning function, configuration data can be copied from a master projector to slave projectors via LAN, expediting the setup of multiple RZ120BUs.

Wide-Range Powered Lens Shift

Images can be quickly and easily aligned via remote control using the projector's extra-wide powered lens shift, which offers -16 to 50% vertical and -10 to 30% horizontal adjustment with the preinstalled standard lens.

Contrast Sync and Shutter Sync Function

The PT-RZ120BU features contrast and shutter sync functions for multi-screen and mapping applications. Contrast sync allows the projector's digitally modulated contrast function to be synchronized over the network for consistent picture quality across screens. Shutter Sync incorporates a master/slave principle to synchronize shutter on/off timing between all networked projectors. It includes simultaneous fade-in and fade-out functions.

Reduce Inventory Costs with Shared Lenses

The PT-RZ120BU shares optional lenses with other Panasonic projectors, reducing TCO for staging and event companies with large projector inventories. These lenses are designed to attach and detach with one-touch ease.
The ET-DLE030 lens is not compatible with the PT-RZ120BU projector.

Quick Start, Quick Off

The laser light source doesn't require any warm-up, so images appear almost instantly (in about one second). There's also no cool-down period needed when turning the power off at the mains—the projector can be turned on and off any time as necessary.

Multi-Monitoring and Control Software

The software offers monitoring and control of up to 2048 devices over a LAN network from a single computer. For monitoring, status for individual devices can be listed in groups, with more detailed information shown separately. Control functions include power on/off, input switching, scheduling, and command inputs.

Optional Early Warning Software

Early Warning Software monitors the status of projectors and displays connected to an intranet and informs you when an abnormality is detected or predicted, or when there are symptoms of trouble, helping to minimize downtime for stable operation.

Multi-Unit Brightness and Color Control

This function is designed to automatically correct brightness and color fluctuations that occur over time in individual projectors in a multi-screen system.

Multi-Screen Support System Connects Multiple Screens

With edge blending, edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled. Color matching corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors. Computer software helps provide easy, accurate control.

Backup Input Setting Helps Optimize Performance

This feature allows for smooth switching to a backup input signal should the primary signal be disrupted, helping to ensure reliability for mission-critical control rooms, projection mapping, staging, and other applications where image display must be maintained.

Free 360° Rotation

The projector can be rotated 360° for installation and projection at virtually any angle.

Supports Art-Net DMX and PJLink

The PT-RZ120BU is compatible with Art-Net DMX protocol for lighting management, allowing the projector to be connected to a lighting console, opening the door to a range of added functionality and control options. The onboard LAN terminal also supports PJLink (Class 2) for integration into an existing A/V network using multiple device brands.

Geometric Adjustment for Custom Screen Surfaces

Geometric Adjustment adapts the image for projection onto spherical, cylindrical, and other shaped screens. Fine-tuning is performed via the remote control, with no external equipment needed. Paired with the Multi-Screen Support System, creative mapping presentations are possible in a variety of event and staging applications.

Geometry Manager Pro Software

This software is designed to expand built-in functionality to make complex adjustments easier. The free software package includes enhanced color matching and edge blending for multi-screen projection and adjustment of multiple screens over the network. An optional upgrade kit for this software adds creative masking capability using either four lines or bitmap data, as well as uniformity correction and correction area expansion.

Detail Clarity Processor 3 Sharpens Details

The circuit is designed to optimize the sharpness of each image based on the frequency components of the extracted image information, for enhanced realism.
