Bright, high-quality images with many advanced functions satisfy versatile applications. Along with operating noise of just 30 dB, the PT-DZ780 Series is perfect for noise-critical situations such as museums, exhibitions and auditoriums.


The black PT-DX820BU 1-Chip 8200 Lumens XGA DLP Projector with 25.6 – 35.7mm Lens from Panasonic provides the high brightness of 8200 lumens with a dramatically reduced noise (30 dB), thanks to a carefully designed airflow control system and cooling fans. The 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, bringing out fine details accordingly.


The projector uses high-powered 310W lamps that have a long replacement cycle of up to 4,000 hours. The dual-lamp system eliminates the interruption if a lamp should fail (in dual-lamp operation mode), ensuring 24/7 projection. Dynamic RGB Booster ensures remarkable balance of brightness and color reproduction. The dual-lamp system contributes to reliable operation, less downtime, and low maintenance cost.

Dual-lamp system using two high-output 310W lamps provides high brightness of 8200 lumens.
Thanks to a carefully designed airflow control system and cooling fans, operation noise is dramatically reduced to 30 dB, even when the projector is used with the lamps at full power in normal mode.
The projector takes air in from the bottom of the unit and exhausts it from the back, eliminating openings in the front and sides and thereby eliminating noise leakage.
Well-positioned fans operate efficiently with slower rotation and less noise.
Panasonic's Dynamic RGB Booster achieves high image quality with levels of color reproduction and brightness that make each color stand out. It combines Panasonic's proprietary Vivid Color Control technology with a Lamp Modulation Drive System for a 1-chip DLP projector that produces bright and 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.
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, bringing out fine details accordingly. The resulting images have a more natural, three-dimensional appearance with crisp, clear detail.
High-powered 310W lamps have a long replacement cycle of up to 4000 hours, reducing the total cost of ownership.
The optical block, the heart of the projector, is hermetically sealed to resist the effects of dust and other particles in the air, which makes it possible to remove the air filters for optics. This also contributes to the low total cost of ownership.
Panasonic's liquid cooling system directly cools the DLP chip to improve performance and enable operation up to 113°F. This allows use in a wider variety of environments, while stabilizing performance and keeping the unit quiet even in harsh conditions.
Dual-Lamp system eliminates the interruption if a lamp should fail (in dual-lamp operation mode). The Lamp Relay mode also operates the lamps alternately to enable 24/7 projection.
DIGITAL LINK is an original function added to HDBaseT technology. Equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, the projector allows transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video, and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) a distance up to 492' through a single Cat5e (STP) cable or higher. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it suitable for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations. A single cable solution can be expanded by using the DIGITAL LINK switcher ET-YFB200G (not included).
Geometric Adjustment adjusts the image for projection onto spherical, cylindrical, and other specially-shaped screens. You can make the adjustments easily using only the remote, with no external equipment needed. Four-Corner Adjustment and Keep Aspect Off functions also simplify fine adjustment.
Geometry Manager Pro Freeware 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 over a network fast and easy. A computer can be used to operate this function, and up to three sets of adjustments can be stored.
The Multi-Screen Support System optimally adjusts edge blending, color matching, and digital image enlarging within multiple screens.
Compatible with the Art-Net protocol which transmits the lighting control protocol DMX512 over the Ethernet for lighting management. This allows you to connect your lighting console to the projector and operate its functions remotely.
Backup Input function prevents downtime by using two inputs. 1
