Panasonic has introduced the range of Laser projectors with the new PT-RQ50K. The new model uses 3-Chip DLP technology and features a native 4K resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. The hybrid light source is called Solid Shine. The deployment of separate red and blue Solid Shine laser-phosphor drives ensures an advanced level of color reproduction, providing vibrant and immersive images to engage audiences.
The brightness stands at extremely high levels: we speak of 50,000 lumens 4K projector and a guaranteed duration for at least 20,000 hours. Full specifications are not currently available. The projector will be available from December 2019 and there will be time to present it in great detail.
The Japanese giant also announced the PT-RQ100 projector, equipped with a DLP chip and native WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) can simulate Ultra HD resolution using 4K Smooth Pixel Drive technology. This model also integrates a Solid Shine light source capable of ensuring a brightness of 10,000 lumens. It will arrive in December 2019.
In the frame of ISE 2019, currently underway in Amsterdam (February 5-8), Panasonic has expanded its range of professional LCD displays. The TH-55VF2 features a 0.88 mm thick frame. This feature makes it particularly suitable for multi-screen installations. The screen is an IPS with a brightness of 500cd/m2 or 700cd/m2 in the VF2H variant. The TH-55LFV9 is another novelty which is very similar to the VF2 series, it is distinguished by the thickness of the frame equal to 3.5 mm. The VF2 series will be available at the beginning of 2020 while the VF9 will arrive in October 2019.
The extensive catalog is completed with a series of Ultra HD displays. The SQ1 series from 500cd/m2 expands with the cuts by 43″, 49″, 55″ and 65″ to be added to 86″ and 98″ already on the market. The arrival is scheduled for the end of 2019. In the fall all the six models of the CQ1 series will be available, less luminous than the SQ1 (400cd/m2) and declined in the 43″, 50″, 55″, 65″, 75″ and 86″ cuts.
