Main Features

High-Visibility Images in Bright Rooms

Deliver clear, striking images in well-lit open meeting spaces and classrooms from the smallest and lightest LCD laser projector in its class. High 6200 lm brightness, 3,000,000:1 contrast, and vivid color creates an engaging presentation experience.

Flexible Installation Adapts to Any Space

Compact 6.5 kg (14.33 lbs) body is easy to install while 1.6x zoom, lens adjustment, and 6-Point Screen Correction let you project almost anywhere, even room corners. CEC command compatible HDMI supports WUXGA signals for easy integration.

Smooth, Effortless Collaboration

Connect devices to the projector over wireless LAN just by snapping an on-screen QR Code with your phone. Share video, documents and more via PC software and apps. You can also project media from a USB flash drive without cable hassle.

Introducing the World's Smallest and Lightest LCD Laser Projector

Weighing just 6.5 kg (14.33 lbs), PT-VMZ51 Series is the smallest and lightest LCD laser projector in its class with up to 5,200 lm from a compact, easy-to-manage body. Its lightweight design makes it easy to carry from room to room, and simple to install on the ceiling. The projector's smooth styling and quiet operation harmonize with your interior space, blending in and keeping attention focused on the presentation.

Bright, High-Visibility Images in Well-Lit Spaces

Because office and classroom projectors are used with the room lights on and window blinds open, they need high light output to produce a bright image. Thanks to a carefully refined optical engine, PT-VMZ51S Series generates up to 5200 lm of brightness, more than most professional projectors of a similar size. Dim, washed out projections are history: expect big, bright, vivid pictures in bright environments to stimulate viewer engagement with the lesson or meeting content.

High 3,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast

Input signals are analyzed frame by frame to regulate light output for best contrast performance in every scene. As well as accurately reproducing pictures that contain a mix of dark and bright hues, Dynamic Contrast is more energy efficient than other technologies and can be optimized to suit the content or the room's lighting. The projector's high 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio provides better detail definition in shadows with deeper blacks, brighter whites, and more natural skin-tones for a better sense of depth and definition.

Daylight View Basic Optimizes Image Quality in Bright Rooms

Daylight View Basic enhances image sharpness by clarifying detail definition in dark areas of the picture, which can be difficult to see in bright light. A sensor measures the amount of ambient light in the room and optimizes halftone color and brightness for best results according to surrounding levels of illumination.

Power Consumption Reduced by 20 %

PT-VMZ61 Series uses about 20 % less energy than the previous series. Efficiency is further increased, and brightness optimized to suit ambient light levels, just by pressing the ECO button on the remote control. Adopting energy-efficient Panasonic projection in your meeting rooms or learning spaces helps you to achieve CSR environmental policy objectives while reducing waste.

Reduce Interruptions and Callout Frequency

In typical office and classroom environments, the projector's reusable ECO Filter doesn't need replacement until about 20,000 hours. That equates to about 10 years of service assuming about 40 hours of projection per working week. If it's necessary to maintain the filter before then, it can be washed and reused up to two times, reducing waste and parts inventories and contributing to your CSR environmental policy objectives.

Versatile 1.6x Zoom with Wide-Range V/H Lens-Shift

Built-in 1.6x optical zoom (1.09-1.77:1) supports projection from close range or from a distance, enhancing projector location flexibility and bringing large, easy-to-see images to rooms of different sizes and shapes. V/H Lens-Shift function offers +44 % to 0 % Vertical adjustment, useful when projecting from a high ceiling, and +/-20 % Horizontal adjustment to correctly place the image when projecting off-axis to the screen.

New Digital Zoom Extender Function

One consideration when updating your school or business projectors is: will the replacement projectors fit the existing mount positions on the ceiling? In some cases, the throw-distance required to produce an image at the desired size might exceed the projector's optical zoom range. Panasonic answers the problem with a new Digital Zoom Extender function equipped for the first time on the PT-VMZ51 Series. It provides a convenient way to fit the image to your screen beyond optical zoom range, reducing need to relocate your projector mounts and potentially saving you time, money, and hassle on your next refreshment cycle.

Easy Operation with 2x CEC Command-Compatible HDMI Inputs

HDMI inputs are compatible with control signals sent via a CEC command compatible component, giving you limited control over the projector using the compatible source device's remote control. The projector power ups from Standby and commences playback automatically on command from a compatible player, such as optional Wireless Presentation System PressIT, when connected to the projector via HDMI.

New 6-Point Screen Adjustment for Projection into Room Corners

PT-VMZ61 Series is the first Panasonic projector to feature 6-Point Screen Correction. It allows you to perform 4-Corner and Horizontal/Vertical Keystone Correction via remote control to remove trapezoidal distortion when projecting from an angle, such as a high ceiling. An extra two control points located at center top and bottom of the screen can be used to remove distortion when projecting an image into the corner of a room.

Screen Adjustment Function

Screen Adjustment fits the image to the screen when projecting from an unusual angle. Curved Screen Correction removes barrel or pincushion distortion for projection onto curved surfaces.

Shutter Function is Great for Short Breaks

Press a button on top of the unit or on the remote control to block light-output temporarily via the shutter function. This feature is useful when taking a short recess during lessons or meetings, or whenever you want to pause content without showing an image, but keep the projector on and ready to go again instantly.
