ThePT-DZ16KU 3-Chip DLP ProjectorfromPanasonicproduces bright, sharp images by employing a four lamp system, which provides 16,000 lumens of brightness for comfortable viewing in various lighting conditions.

Together with 16,000 lumens of brightness, Panasonic's System Daylight View 2 technology assists the versatile use of the projector by automatically adjusting the picture quality of the image to match the living room or theater room conditions. This is made possible by utilizing built-in ambient light and color sensors that adjust the white balance, gamma curve, and sharpness settings to maintain bright, crisp pictures that match the viewing environment.

The digital image processing circuit brings greater clarity and sharpness to details, by reproducing fine nuances that were lost due to image compression. After a two dimensional analysis of the video signal's frequency in each scene, the new circuit optimizes the sharpness of each image portion based on the extracted information.

The PT-DZ16K is ideal for a wide range of applications requiring high brightness and long-term operation, such as museums, entertainment facilities, churches, and large auditoriums.

This projector does not come with a lens.

Brightness of 16,000 Lumens
Panasonic's quad-lamp system, with its high-power 420W UHM lamps, has helped to make the body extremely compact while providing 16,000 lumens of brightness
Waveform Monitor Function
When the output level of the source device fluctuates due to the performance of the device or its cable connections, the original black and white levels of the image content cannot be reproduced correctly. With the projector, you can view the waveforms on the screen and adjust the settings either automatically or manually
Multi Projector Monitoring & Control
It lets you control and monitor multiple projectors simultaneously over a wired LAN. If a problem occurs, an alarm message is sent to the monitoring PC
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 degrees vertically, to accommodate various installation conditions. The lens-centered design contributes to easy installation
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 PT-DZ16K can project large, multi-screen images without any additional equipment. Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time
Environmentally Friendly Design
It includes a low power consumption of 2150W
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
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
Liquid Cooling System Attains a High Level of Reliability
This liquid cooling system directly cools the DLP chip to improve performance and enable operation up to 45 C (113 F). It allows quiet (48 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 uses an ion effect to collect minute dust particles. 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. When washing with water, please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions. Also, we recommend replacing the filter with a new one after it has been washed and reused twice. If the filter is not sufficiently clean after washing, replace it with a new one
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 them to each other via a hub, and this can be increased to a maximum of 2048 projectors by using the software
Geometric Adjustment for Specially Shaped Screens
This function adjusts the image for projection onto spherical, cylindrical and other specially shaped screens. You can make the adjustment easily using only the remote control, with no external equipment needed
Ecology-Conscious Design
No halogenated flame retardants are used in the cabinet
Lead-free solder is used to mount components to the printed circuit boards
Stand-by power consumption of only 0.3W
Auto power save activates standby mode when no signal is input
Detail Clarity Processor 3
This Panasonic circuit optimizes the sharpness of each image, based on the super- high-, high-, medium-, and low-frequency components of the extracted image information. The resulting images have more natural, lifelike expression
Dynamic Iris for a 10,000:1 Contrast Ratio
Panasonic's Dynamic Iris uses a scene-linking aperture mechanism to achieve a 10,000:1 contrast ratio without lowering its high brightness. This helps to reproduce deeper, richer blacks, and provides images with more detailed textures
System Daylight View 2
This Panasonic technology optimizes image quality to improve the color perception of the projected image in bright rooms. With a brightness of 16,000 lumens, it provides highly comfortable viewing even in bright lighting, and allows viewers to concentrate easily on the images
