Panasonic PT-FRZ50BU7 WUXGA 5200 Lumens DLP Laser Projector
Dynamic Color for Bright Rooms
Brilliant Color Reproduction
Quartet Color Harmonizer is an original color-wheel mechanism featuring optimized optical design. It modulates light-output according to the image’s color requirements, achieving wide-gamut reproduction with pure white for greater color accuracy and depth without sacrificing brightness. Combined with stable SOLID SHINE Laser brightness and the superior uniformity of DLP™ imaging, colors appear richer and brighter without the greenish cast sometimes experienced with alternative projection technologies.
Rich Color Enhancer
Rich Color Enhancer includes a Dynamic Mode that prioritizes image brightness, and a Graphic Mode/Standard Mode to suit graphical content. This mode adjusts color-wheel timing for deeper color saturation in situations where projection at maximum brightness is not required.
Dynamic Contrast 2 Heightens Contrast Precision
PT-FRZ60/FRZ50 features a new Dynamic Contrast 2 setting that enhances digitally modulated contrast precision to a level approaching our professional models. Dynamic Contrast regulates light-output frame-by-frame or scene-by-scene according to image requirements, achieving accurate contrast when bright and dark scenes frequently interchange. Whites are brighter, blacks richer, and skin-tones more natural even in well-lit environments. The technology also consumes less energy than conventional projection systems.
Quiet, Versatile, and Easy to Install
Wide-Range 2.0x Zoom Lens with Lens-Shift
To smooth the path to stress-free installation, the projectors equip a 2.0x optical zoom lens that supports a wide range of throw-distances while filling the entire screen with a high-brightness image. V/H Lens-Shift (Vertical: +64 %, -44 % and Horizontal: +34 %, -27 %) locates the image on screen when optimal projector placement isn’t possible, such as in rooms with high ceilings or for angled projection. V/H Keystone Correction (Vertical: ±40 °, Horizontal: ±20 °), curved-screen correction, and Auto Image Rotation function are included to further enhance flexibility. Lens, lens-shift range, and optional brackets are identical to the previous Panasonic PT-RZ570 model, making the PT-FRZ60/FRZ50 a cost-effective replacement choice since the new projector can swap straight in with practically no installation adjustment required.
Both projectors support uncompressed 4K/60p input signals via HDCP 2.3-compliant HDMI® inputs or DIGITAL LINK terminal. The ability to play Ultra HD video at the projector's resolution is invaluable when distributing the same signal to 4K-ready endpoints of differing screen resolutions. An external video converter is not required, saving on installation cost, and you no longer need to reencode video to suit different display resolutions. If preferred, both video and 10Base-T/100Base-TX-compliant control-signals can be assigned to DIGITAL LINK using CAT5e STP cable (or higher): a cost-efficient way to connect over long distances.
CEC-ready HDMI Inputs and USB-DC Outlet
HDMI inputs are compatible with control commands from a CEC-compatible component, and allow you to power the projector on/off and commence playback using the source device’s controls. A 5 V/2 A USB-DC outlet will power an HDMI network streaming device so groups can share content to the big screen from their PCs or mobiles. USB power also supports connection of PressIT*1, Panasonic’s new Wireless Presentation System, for effortless one-touch transmission of content from PC or mobile––no software installation required.
Separate LAN and DIGITAL LINK Terminals
Separate LAN and HDBase-T™-based DIGITAL LINK terminals allow 100Base-TX- and 10BaseT-compatible control signals via Panasonic, Crestron®, AMX, and Extron® applications to be assigned to the dedicated LAN connection, freeing DIGITAL LINK for high-bandwidth video over cable runs of up to 150 m (492 ft).
Quiet 27 dB Projection Mode
With more lessons and meetings now taking place online, it’s important to own a quiet projector that won’t drown out the discussion. A silent projector also helps your team to focus by limiting distractions. PT-FRZ60/FRZ50 includes a Quiet Mode that enables practically inaudible 27 dB* (PT-FRZ50) or 30 dB* (PT-FRZ60) operation. Enjoy better results from an alert audience, whether they’re in the room or participating online.
Proven SOLID SHINE Laser Reliability
SOLID SHINE Laser for Dependably High Brightness
PT-FRZ60 and PT-FRZ50 have durable solid-state laser modules in place of a consumable lamp. The benefits of laser projection are emphatically proven, with no need for consumable parts replacement over years of continuous 24/7 projection and a shallower brightness ramp with superior color uniformity. Experience better picture quality for longer at a comparably lower cost. Another advantage is the ability to switch the unit on and off from the room breaker any time without risking damage to the light-source.
Laser Redundancy Maintains Image Display
Failover Circuitry*1 limits brightness loss in the unlikely event of a single diode failure. Multi Laser Drive Engine*2 features redundant laser modules that maintain image display and allow the presentation to continue if a laser module fails, invaluable for mission-critical situations when projection must not be interrupted.
Filterless Cooling and Airtight Optical Block
Implementation of heat-pipe-based cooling with heat-sinks for the DMD block eliminate need for an air filter. These projectors can operate continuously in dusty environments for 20,000 hours* without maintenance thanks to a hermetically sealed optical engine that prevents dust intrusion and associated image degradation.
Detail Clarity Processor 3
This unique Panasonic circuitry optimizes the sharpness of each image based on information gathered from four frequency bands of the video signal. The resulting images are expressed with natural and convincing realism.
Daylight View Basic
Panasonic’s Daylight View Basic technology achieves sharp, easily viewed images by enhancing detail, particularly in dark areas of the image that are normally difficult to see in brightly lit rooms. A built-in sensor measures ambient light while Daylight View Basic adjusts halftone color and brightness according to the surrounding level of illumination.
ECO Management System
Push the ECO button on the remote control to set up Eco Management functions, including automatic brightness reduction in dim ambient lighting conditions, and power consumption reduction when no input signal is detected.
