Panasonic PT-DW17KU overview

  • 1Description

The PT-DW17KU Large Venue 3-Chip DLP Projector, from Panasonic is ideally suited for fixed installations and public display venues including independent cinema, live events, educational institutions, staging, and public advertising as well as premium home theatre applications. This unique Panasonic technology optimizes image quality to improve the color perception of the projected image in bright rooms. It provides highly comfortable viewing even in bright lighting, and allows viewers to concentrate easily on the images. Featuring Texas Instruments DLP and WXGA (1366 x 768), the PT-DW17KU projector delivers outstanding 17,000 lumen brightness and 10,000:1 contrast ratio. The four-lamp system allows the projector to keep working even if a lamp should fail. The lamp relay mode also operates the lamps alternately to enable 24/7 projection.

The 3-chip system with DLP technology delivers great image resolution, considered among the most advanced projector engines. This gives superior light utilization for high brightness, digital processing for low noise and linear white balance, extended device life for minimal image degradation, and a quick response that eliminates afterimages.

With fantastic durability, bright light output, excellent color quality and full HD playback from a variety of digital and analog input sources; the PT-DW17KU is an ideal partner for modern, high-end laptops with full HD resolution.

Lens not included!

DICOM Simulation Mode
This imaging mode is similar to DICOM part 14, which is a medical imaging standard. It reproduces X-ray images with remarkable clarity.
Multi-Screen Support System Seamlessly Connects Multiple Screens
Edge blending: The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled
Color matching: This function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors. The PC software assures easy, accurate control
Multi-screen processor: The projector can project large, multi-screen images without any additional equipment. Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time
Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software Ver. 2.7
Panasonic's original Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software Ver. 2.7 freeware lets you control and monitor multiple projectors at the same time over a wired LAN. If a problem occurs, an alarm message is sent to the monitoring / controlling PC
Multi-Unit Brightness Control
This function automatically corrects the brightness fluctuations that occur over time in the individual projectors of a multi-screen system. Up to eight projectors can be controlled by connecting to each other via a hub, and this can be increased to a maximum of 2,048 projectors by using Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software Ver. 2.7
Flexible Installation
The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal / vertical lens shift function can be easily adjusted with the remote control. The unit can also be rotated 360° vertically, to accommodate various installation conditions. The lens-centered design contributes to easy installation
System Daylight View 2 for Enhanced Color Perception
This unique Panasonic technology optimizes image quality to improve the color perception of the projected image in bright rooms. With a brightness of 20,000 lumens, it provides highly comfortable viewing even in bright lighting, and allows viewers to concentrate easily on the images
Detail Clarity Processor 3 Gives Natural Clarity to Even the Finest Details
This unique Panasonic circuit optimizes the sharpness of each image, based on the superhigh-, high-, medium-, and low-frequency components of the extracted image information. The resulting images have more natural, lifelike expression
Low TCO and an Environmentally Friendly Design
The projector lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) because they have a lamp replacement cycle of up to 2000 hours. Their environmentally friendly design also includes a low power consumption of 2300W
Liquid Cooling System Attains a High Level of Reliability
This new liquid cooling system directly cools the DLP chip to improve performance and enable operation up to 113°F (45°C). It allows quiet (49 dB) and versatile use while stabilizing performance. It also helps to make the body compact. And the system is hermetically sealed, so you don't need to replenish the liquid
Eco Filter that Needs No Maintenance for up to 12,000 Hours
The eco filter has an electrostatic micro cut filter that collects minute dust particles with an ion effect. It combines with the dust-resistant cabinet to enable long-term use even under harsh conditions. Its maintenance cycle of up to 12,000 hours reduces hassle, and the environmental design lets you wash the filter with water and reuse it
Easy Lamp Replacement
For easier maintenance, you can replace the lamp from the rear. This makes it easy to replace a lamp while the projector is still in the mounting bracket or dual stacked
Dynamic Iris for a High 10,000:1 Contrast Ratio
Panasonic's dynamic iris uses a scene-linking aperture mechanism to achieve a remarkable 10,000:1 contrast without lowering its high brightness. This helps to reproduce deeper, richer blacks, and provides images with more detailed textures
Four-Lamp System Enables Stable, Extended Operation
The four-lamp system allows the projector to keep working even if a lamp should fail. The Lamp Relay mode also operates the lamps alternately to enable 24/7 projection. Quad, triple, dual and single lamp modes can be used
