The Japanese company definitely strengthens its presence in the field of projection and also launches a clear message regarding the displays.
Panasonic is above all video projection. The range of projectors of the Japanese house is notoriously vast and offers solutions for all needs, from major events to education and Corporate. The ISE new features open with the new 0.28 mm lens which eliminates the problem of offset in short-throw projectors (the optics is compatible with all DLP 1-chip Panasonic models). Also available a new lens for 3-chip DLP models.
Daniela Karakaci, Field Marketing Manager Italy of Panasonic PSCEU Visual System Solution Products, interviewed during the fair, said: “We believe that the DLP is a technology for some installations better than the LCD. But we are also introducing an important line up of LCD projectors. In fact, we think that for big applications, laser is the best technology, while in the lower ones, LCD lamp models have more reason to be. It’s also true, on the other hand, that the market is starting to request the laser even in the low end. The new LCD series with fixed optics, very wide-angle, is proposed as a solution for meeting rooms and small environments, and goes to fill an area in which we were lacking. The main advantage of these projectors is that they accept the 4K signal, then projecting obviously in full HD, where many other products on the market give only an error signal. The evolution of the market” – concluded Daniela Karakaci – “is however towards laser technology in the whole range of our projectors.”
To conclude the overview on the projection world, you can not miss the new colossal PT-RQ50K, 50.000 lumens 4K native. “Previously” – said Daniela Karakaci – “we never used the native 4K chip, but a pixel shifting technology. The new PT-RQ50K is just a little more cumbersome than the 27.000 lumen PT-RQ32 4K, but it’s a maintenance free model, with a double power supply to deal with any emergencies, ideal for mapping, for example in big concerts, in which a 50.000 lumen projector is more useful than smaller and less luminous models.”
Also presented at ISE the new VF and LVF videowall series, with a considerably reduced frame: from the previous 1.8 mm to the current 0.88 mm bezel-to-bezel of the TH-55VF2 model. Two versions are available, one from 500 cd/m2 and one from 700 cd/m2. The new SQ1 98” 4K 500 cd/m2 is also very interesting. The series ranges from 43” to 98”, and offers 24/7 performance. The main novelty of these new displays is the Intel SDM slot: just insert the card to have a built-in computer, and the display is also equipped with 4K media player and HDR, more and more required.
“Panasonic’s attention to the display has increased during the last year – says Daniela Karakaci -. Just like our investments in this sector, which allowed us to introduce a complete products lineup for different vertical markets.”
Finally, the Collaboration world was also represented in the Panasonic stand by a panoramic screen made up with two 12.000 lumens projectors and interactive stations equipped with touch displays and PTZ cameras, connected via a single LAN cable. All activities are shared in real time on the screen, and the interaction between students and teachers is tightened.
