The silver PT-DZ680LS 1-Chip DLP Projector from Panasonic, featuring a dual-lamp system, is compact but powerful. This WUXGA projector is suitable for a wide variety of applications, from education and business to museums.

The RGB Booster ensures vivid, colorful images, and the original Eco Filter eliminates the need for filter replacement for up to 12,000 hours. A host of terminals and advanced management functions provide enhanced system flexibility.

High Brightness with High-Power AC Lamp

The high-efficiency light convergence technology and the color wheel work together to achieve the high brightness of 6,000 lm for the projector. Clear, crisp images are reproduced even in bright rooms.

RGB Booster Significantly Improves Color Reproduction

The RGB Booster achieves high image quality with levels of color reproduction and brightness that make each color stand out. It combines Panasonic's Vivid Color Control technology with the Lamp Modulation Drive System for a 1-chip DLP projector that produces bright and vivid colors.

Vivid Color Control

This control technology optimizes the use of the color segment areas of the color wheel. It increases the brightness of each RGB color by minimizing the unallocated portions between the colors, to achieve truly vivid coloring.

Lamp Modulation Drive System

With the advanced lamp modulation technology, the projector is able to control the lamp intensity for each of the red, green, blue, and white segments of the color wheel separately. Because the actual light output is controlled in relation to each color segment, light usage is optimized and color balance is obtained without lowering the brightness. This results in bright vivid images with increased color fidelity.

Detail Clarity Processor Brings Depth and Clarity to Detail

This advanced image-processing circuit analyzes the video signal frequency range for each scene by extracting data on the distribution of high-, mid-, and low-frequency components, and brings out fine details accordingly. The resulting images have a natural, 3D appearance with crisp, clear detail.

System Daylight View 2 for Enhanced Color Perception

Image details are less clear when a projector is used in a room with the lights on. Panasonic's System Daylight View 2 improves brightness perception by adjusting the sharpness, gamma curves, and the color corrections. This produces crisp, stunning images with vivid colors even under bright conditions.

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.
Do not install the projector in locations that are subject to excessive water, humidity, steam, or oily smoke. Doing so may result in fire, malfunction, or electric shock.

Rec. 709 Mode for HDTV Projection

Optimal color reproduction can be achieved by selecting this mode, compliant with ITU-R.

Full 10-Bit Picture Processing

The use of a full 10-bit image-processing system provides smooth tonal expression. For example, skin tones appear natural and true to life.

Eco Filter that Needs No Maintenance for up to 12,000 Hours

The original Eco Filter consists of 2 Micro Cut Filters (electrostatic filters), a pre-filter, and a main filter, which use an ion effect to collect extremely small dust particles. The pre-filter has a honeycomb configuration and the main filter is pleated to achieve a large surface area that raises its dust-collecting performance. Thanks to these features, the Eco Filter has a replacement cycle of up to 12,000 hours, which reduces the hassle of maintenance. And, as an environmental consideration, the filter can be washed with water and reused.
The projector uses a high-voltage mercury lamp that contains high internal pressure. This lamp may break, emitting a large sound, or fail to illuminate, due to an impact or extended use.
The projector uses a high-wattage lamp that becomes very hot during operation.

Dual-Lamp System Prevents Image Interruptions

The Dual-Lamp System eliminates the need to interrupt a presentation if a lamp should burn out (in dual-lamp operation mode). The Lamp Relay mode also operates the lamps alternately to enable 24/7 projector operation.

Liquid Cooling System Attains a High Level of Reliability

The liquid cooling system directly cools the DLP chip to improve performance and enable operation up to 113°F (45°C). This allows you to use this projector in a wider variety of environments, while stabilizing performance and keeping the unit quiet even in harsh conditions.
The operating temperature range is 32 to 104°F (0 to 40°C) when the high altitude mode is set on (for altitudes from 4,593 to 8,858' (1,400 to 2,700m) above sea level).

Flexible Installation

The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift function assures convenience and versatility during installation. It lets you easily make adjustments with the included remote control. The unit can also be rotated 360° vertically. This means that you can install it at any angle you want, to accommodate different installation conditions.

Multi-Screen Support System Seamlessly Connects Multiple Screens

The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts multiple screens: Edge blending, color matching, and multi-screen processor.
Edge Blending
The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance be controlled.
Color Matching
This function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors.
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.

Side-by-Side Function

The projector can simultaneously display images from 2 sources onto a single screen. For example, you can display a PC image on the left and a video image on the right. Taking advantage of the wide-screen projection, this function gives you a host of new application possibilities to explore.
This function is not effective for some source combinations.

Multi-Projector Monitoring & Control Software

Panasonic's freeware, "Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software," allows the user to control and monitor multiple projectors at the same time via the LAN. Projectors can be scheduled to turn On and Off at a certain hour every day. When a problem occurs, an alarm message is sent to the monitoring/controlling PC.

Crestron RoomView and AMX Device Discovery

The LAN terminal allows a computer connected to the network to use Crestron RoomView application software to manage and control system devices. Besides, the AMX Device Discovery technology is built in the projector.

Standby Mode: ECO

The projector has attained a low standby power level of 0.2W (Standby Mode: ECO). It also helps reduce the environmental impact.
When the STANDBY MODE is set to ECO, network functions such as power on over the LAN will not operate. Also, only certain commands can be received for external control using the serial terminal.

Ecology-Conscious Design

The projector reflects the following ecological considerations:
No halogenated flame retardants are used in the cabinet.
Lead-free solder is used to mount components to the printed circuit boards.
Lamp power switching further reduces power consumption.
Standby power consumption of only 0.2W has been achieved (Standby Mode: ECO).
Auto Power Save activates STANDBY MODE when there is no signal input.
