Panasonic's SOLID SHINE Series uses the newly developed LED/Laser-combined light source.

The SOLID SHINE Series projectors provide solid reliability and long-lasting brightness unprecedented by conventional lamp-based projectors.

The Benefits of the LED/Laser-Combined Light Source:

  • Approximately 20,000 hours* of maintenance-freeoperation: No need to replace the light source or air filter, providing a dramatic reduction in TCO.
    *A guideline for light source replacement.  The maintenance-free period may be shortened due to environmental conditions.
  • Long-lasting picture quality: Excellent picture quality and brightness are maintained for a long time.
  • Superb color reproduction: Beautiful, vivid colors exceeding the levels of conventional projectors.
  • Quick start, quick off: The image appears almost instantly upon powering up, and there is no need for cooling after turning the power off.  The power can be turned on immediately after being turned off, and it can be turned on/off as many times as you want.
The LED/Laser-Combined Light Source Enables Approx. 20,000* Hours of Continuous Operation
This light source requires no maintenance for approximately 20,000 hours.*  In many cases, this means no maintenance until your next refresh cycle.  Naturally, there are no lamp burnout problems during use, so reliability is further increased.  There is also no filter to clean due to carefully engineered sealed optics.
As a consequence, running cost is dramatically lowered because of the savings on lamp costs, maintenance labor and hassle of stocking lamps.
*A guideline for light source replacement. The maintenance-free period may be shortened due to environmental conditions.
Bright, Beautiful Picture Quality for a Long Period of Time
The PT-RZ370 features 3,500 lumens of brightness.  Rate of brightness deterioration in the LED/Laser-combined light source is extremely slow compared to lamp-based projectors.  The SOLID SHINE drive uses a built-in sensor to constantly detect the light intensity of the light source and correct corresponding changes in white balance.  This all helps to maintain excellent picture quality for a long period of time.
Contrast is outstanding too, at 10,000:1, and images are reproduced with a wide dynamic range.  The PT-RZ370 also features a Full-HD (1,920 x 1,080) DLP™ chip, allowing highly detailed Full-HD images without resizing.
Brightness Deterioration Comparison
Superior Color Reproduction
The LED/Laser-combined light source has a higher level of color purity than an ordinary lamp, allowing it to achieve color reproduction with wider color space.  Colors are more vibrant than those of conventional projectors.
30x Drive* Switching Prevents Color Breaking
In 1-chip DLP™ system projectors with conventional lamp, a color wheel is used for time-division multiplexing in a method where the human eye combines the result to achieve a full-color palette.  In the PT-RZ370, this is done by on/off switching of the LED/Laser-combined light source.  A unique Panasonic power supply circuit provides time-division multiplexing with ultrafast 30x drive.*  The resulting, high-definition images exhibit virtually no color breaking.**
*Picture mode: Dynamic. 10x drive in other picture modes.  The rate for each vertical sync/blanking interval, with R/G/B light source switching set to 1x.
**A condition in which incorrect color expression causes color flickering.
Heat Pipe Cooling System Maintains Stable Operation up to 45 °C (113 °F)*
Laser cooling is performed by releasing the heat to cooling fins, then cooling with a heat pipe cooling system.  This suppresses temperature rises inside the projector and allows stable operation up to an ambient temperature of 45 °C (113 °F).*
The use of this heat-pipe cooling system also achieves quiet operation of 29 dB,** enabling viewers to concentrate on the presentation or on quiet movie scenes.
*The operating temperature range is 0 ºC to 40 ºC (32 ºF to 104 ºF) when used in locations from 1,400 m to 2,700 m (4,953 ft to 8,858 ft) above sea lever. If the ambient temperature exceeds 35 °C (95 °F), the light output may be reduced to protect the projector.
**LIGHT POWER mode: ECO. 35 dB with LIGHT POWER mode set to NORMAL.
Heat-pipe cooling system
Dust-Resistant Structure with an Airtight Optical Block
The area between the LED/Laser to the DLP™ chip and prism is hermetically sealed to form an airtight structure for the optical block, the heart of the projector. This resists the effects of dust and other particles in the air, and enables use of the projector in a wide range of environments.
The Daylight View Basic Ensures Clear Images Even in Brightly Lit Rooms
Panasonic's Daylight View Basic technology achieves sharp, easy-to-see images by clearly reproducing the details in dark image areas, which were previously difficult to see in brightly lit rooms.  A built-in sensor measures the ambient light, and the Daylight View Basic function adjusts the halftone color and brightness level according to the surrounding illumination.
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.
* This product is not a medical instrument.  Do not use it for actual medical diagnosis.
Rec. 709 Mode for HDTV Projection
Optimal color reproduction can be achieved by selecting this mode, compliant with ITU-R Recommendation BT.709, when images from an HDTV source are projected.
A Dramatic Reduction of TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
SOLID SHINE Series projectors have swept away the weak points of conventional lamp-based projectors, providing superior Total Cost of Ownership and value.
  • Maintenance-Free: TheLED/Laser-combined light source in the SOLID SHINE Series projectors provides approximately 20,000 hours* of operation with no lamp or filter replacement needed.  This dramatically lowers maintenance costs and labor.
    *A guideline for light source replacement.  The maintenance-free period maybe shortened due to environmental conditions.
  • High Reliability: A highly durablesystem has been achieved with an originally designed, efficient cooling system for the new light source, and a dust-proof structure.  You get stable operation and solid reliability for a long period of time.
  • Flexible Installation: System capabilities such as a 2x zoom lens, an exceptionally wide lens shift range, and 360-degree installation support highly flexible installation. DIGITAL LINK also enables long-distance digital transmission with a single cable.

Versatile First time and Replacement Installations

  • 2x Zoom Lens: The 2x optical zoomlens provides a wide throw range.  For a 120-inch-diagonal wide screen,the projection distance extends from approximately 3.9 m (12.8 ft) toapproximately 7.8 m (25.7 ft).
  • Horizontal / Vertical Lens Shift: The wide shift range accommodates various room sizes and shapes.  When lights or ventilation holes are located in the ceiling mounting site, you can simply relocate the projector to avoid them.

  • Flexible 360-Degree Installation: The projectors can be rotated vertically.  This means you can install on eat any up-and-down angle you want, to accommodate different installation conditions.
  • Lens-Centered Design: A lens-centered, symmetrical design provides ease of installation, eliminating the need for any special considerations when planning the installation site.
DIGITAL LINK Transmits Digital Signals up to 100 m (328 ft) with a Single Cable
Equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, the PT-RZ370 allows transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 100 meters (328 feet) through a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations.
Optional ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box for Easy Setup
By combining the optional (sold separately) ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box, with its HDMI and other input terminals, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals can be transmitted up to 100 m (328 feet) over a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher.  It allows projector connection with only one cable, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations.
Also, because control signals can be simultaneously transmitted, the ET-YFB100G input signal can easily be switched with the wireless remote control that is included with the projector.  The projector can be controlled by either serial or LAN communication.
Also Supports Other Manufacturers’ Peripheral Equipment
DIGITAL LINK is an original function added to technology based on the transmission standards used in Crestron's DigitalMedia 8G+, Extron's XTP Systems, etc.  Signals from the ET-YFB100G can also be relayed to a non-DIGITAL LINK-ready projector by using another manufacturer's equipment based on the same technology.*
*Input selection and other ET-YFB100G operations can be performed only when connecting to a DIGITAL LINK compatible projector.
Abundant Connection Terminals, Including HDMI
Interfaces include HDMI and DVI-I inputs. The serial terminal (RS-232C) has an Emulate function that lets you continue using existing control systems when replacing previous Panasonic models.  It is also possible to output audio during STANDBY MODE.*  This is convenient when connecting an external audio system through the projector.**  A closed caption decoder is built in.
*Requires menu selection.
**Audio monitoring requires external speakers and an audio amplifier.
Easy Remote Monitoring and Control over a LAN
Web browser on a computer connected through a wired LAN system lets you remotely operate projectors and check their status.  An e-mail messaging function can also notify you the overall projector status.
In addition, Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software is available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic projectors from a single PC.
The wired LAN terminal is compatible with PJLink™ (class1), an open protocol that is used by many manufacturers, to enable integrated control of systems that contain different brands of projectors.
Web Browser Control/Monitoring and E-mail Message Alert, PJLink™ Compatibility
Basic Concept of the Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software
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 PT-RZ370.
Image Reaches Full Brightness Quickly ? No Need to Wait for the Lamp to Warm Up
Images do not appear quickly with lamp-based projectors because the projector requires time to warm up.  With the PT-RZ370, the image appears almost instantly.  There's also no cooling time required when turning the power off, so you can quickly turn the projector on and off as many times as needed.
Full brightness right away!
24/7 Operation
Ordinary lamps are not well suited to continuous operation.  Because the PT-RZ370 does not use a lamp, has efficient cooling system and uses DLP™ chip that has a long life, they are capable of 24/7 operation.
Scheduling Function
Scheduled operation is possible using the built-in timer function, without having to use a PC and software.
Effective Theft Prevention with the Startup Logo
You can change the default Panasonic start up logo to any logo you want.  A new logo can be easily uploaded by connecting a computer to the PT-RZ370 through the LAN or serial connection by using the Logo Transfer Software.*
An abundance of other security measures are also included, such as a security bar, Key lock, and Security Password.  This is very effective for preventing theft.
*Still images that can be uploaded are limited to 1024 x 768 pixel bitmap files.  Also, the application will reduce the number of colors to 191.
15 m (49 ft) Long-Range Wireless Remote Control
A unique ID number can be assigned to each projector using the supplied wireless remote control unit.  This allows operation of a desired projector when multiple units are set up at the same location.  Three frequently used functions can be assigned to the Function buttons for instant recall.
Eco Management Functions
A number of functions are provided to reduce power consumption.  You can easily set the Eco Management functions according to operating conditions by using the "ECO" button on the remote control.

  • 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.
  • Please observe the following precautions:
    • Never place objects on top of the projector while it is in operation.
    • Make sure there is an unobstructed space of 500 mm (1 ft 8 in) or more around the projector's exhaust openings.
    • Do not stack projector units directly on top of one another for the purpose of multiple (stacked) projection. When stacking projector units, be sure to provide the recommended space between units.  These space requirements also apply to installation where only one projector unit is operating at one time and the other unit is used as a backup.
    • Make sure that nothing blocks the projector's air intake and exhaust openings.  Also, install the projector so that cool or hot air from other air conditioning equipment does not flow directly toward the projector's air intake or exhaust openings.
    • Do not install the projectorin an enclosed space. If it is necessary to install it in an enclosed space, add a separate ventilation system.  If ventilation is insufficient, hot air will accumulate at the intake opening. This may cause the projector's protective circuit to interrupt projector operation.
    • If the projector is placed in a box, ensure that the projector's intake and exhaust openings are not blocked.  Take particular care to ensure that hot air from the exhaust openings is not sucked into the intake openings.
    • To install and use the projector via a method that does not use the adjustable feet in a floor standing installation, fix the projector using the four screw holes for ceiling mounting. (Screw diameter: M4, tapping depth inside the set: 7 mm, torque: 1.25 ± 0.2 N-m)
