PT-RQ22KU 3-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser Projector with 4K+ Resolution
The new compact and lightweight PT-RQ22KU 3-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser 4K+ projector is perfect for a wide range of large-venue applications, delivering 21,000lm of maximum brightness. The PT-RQ22KU with 4K+ resolution (5120 x 3200-pixel*1) incorporates Quad Pixel Drive technology which creates extra pixels vertically and horizontally, quadrupling pixel density and by doing so, produces film-like image quality with the finest details in exquisite 4K+ resolution. Key features and advantages of the PT-RQ22KU include flexible 360-degree installation, long-distance HDBaseT™-based DIGITAL LINK video/control transmission, Multi-Screen Support Systems and Geometry Adjustment software for network management over LAN complete with optional plug-ins for simultaneous auto-calibration of multiple projectors and expanded multi-screen support functions. Coupled with a 240 Hz-capable Real Motion Processor for fluid motion reproduction, Detail Clarity Processor 5+ technology with 4K optimization, System Daylight View 3 analysis technology, and digitally laser light-source modulated 20,000:1 dynamic contrast for spectacular visuals from fast action scenes to film-like text and graphic reproduction. The PT-RQ22KU also provides 4K BT.2020 color-space emulation and supports HDR standard for accurate handling of next-generation video formats. Other important features include highly desirable Quick On/Off, mechanical shutter functionality, and power management functions to ensure smooth, energy-efficient, virtually continuous 24/7 operation in long-term or temporary installations. The PT-RQ22KU will be available in August 2018.

New 1-Chip DLP™SOLID SHINE Laser Projectors - PT-RZ120 and PT-RZ870
The new 12,000lm PT-RZ120 with 4K signal input and 8,500lm PT-RZ870 projectors blend crisp and vivid imaging with bright, dual-laser-module and dual-phosphor-wheel SOLID SHINE laser drives designed to support mission critical applications. A unique color-wheel system enhanced by dual heat-resistant phosphor wheels works in harmony to maximize color accuracy while reducing energy loss from the light sources. Both projectors are capable of maintenance-free operation for up to 20,000 hours thanks to air-tight and dust-resistant optical units and cooling systems negating the need for air filters. These projectors offer the flexibility for 360-degree installation and DIGITAL LINK (based on HDBaseT™ technology) for single-cable connection. The PT-RZ120 and PT-RZ870 projectors will suit the needs of many industries, such as education, corporate, museum and House of Worship venues. The customers will have options to decide which high brightness, high reliability projector will best meet their needs. The PT-RZ120 will be available in October 2018, the PT-RZ870 begins shipping in July 2018.
