Panasonic Debuts World’s First Lamp-Free 1080p Projectors

Panasonic PT-RZ470Panasonic has just unveiled a new projector that, on the surface, sounds impossible. That’s because Panasonic’s new device is the first ever 1080p lamp-free projector series with HDBaseT technology. This new projector series replaces your conventional lamp with new LED/laser diodes that are boosted by Panasonic’s proprietary technologies that offer long-lasting high brightness of more than 3,000 lumens.

The new projectors, which come as the single-chip DLP PT-RZ470 and PT-RZ370 Series, will be made available in two different resolutions: full 1080p HD (1,920 x 1,080) and WXGA (1,280 x 800) with capabilities that were previously impossible with conventional projector lamps.

These new projectors pair an LED/laser light source with Panasonic’s installation flexibility, including lens shift capabilities, which marks a new milestone in projector technology. This allows the projectors to provide users with continuous high brightness and professional grade features, including Edge Blending and Color Matching.

This new technology has also allowed Panasonic to enrich the projector usage experience for different environments, like the educational industry, as well as for professional applications, like museums, digital signage, conferences or other large corporate events.

In addition to that, the new lighting technology delivers up to 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operation. As a result of this convenience, operating costs for the projectors are significantly less than conventional lamp projectors because you don’t have to worry about periodic labor and the associated cost that comes with it.

According to Panasonic, the PT-RZ470 and PT-RZ370 Series projectors will be available through authorized Panasonic resellers beginning in the fourth quarter of 2012. The series will have basic 3-year limited parts and labor warranties with light source operation warranted for more than 10,000 hours. Unfortunately, there has yet to be any word on pricing for either projector.

Barco Releases the CLM-HD6 HD Projector

Barco CLM-HD6Barco, one of the top names in the field of professional visualization, has just launched the new CLM-HD6 projector. According to Barco, this device has been designed on a brand new platform and offers 6,000 lumens of brightness. The CLM-HD6 also comes with full 108-p HD quality and advanced input options at a “highly competitive price” according to the company. Barco has stated that this projector was designed primarily for meeting rooms, medium-sized auditoriums, lobbies and museums.

The CLM-HD6 is a single-chip DLP projector with advanced color saturation and a full 1080p HD resolution. The resolution, along with the 6,000 lumen output, make the CLM-HD6 perfect for single-screen applications that require a clear, visible image and feature modern HD images and video without a lack in quality.

According to Barco’s Director of Strategic Marketing Projection Chris Colpaert, “The CLM-HD6 is an attractive option for customers that want to project in bright HD and need the best quality guarantee at the most comfortable price. And due to its power-saving options, redundant lamp system and durable, proven technology, the CLM also offers a negligible total cost of ownership.”

Barco has had experience in fixed installation applications for decades now. Colpaert added, “This has allowed us to tailor the CLM’s features to our customers’ needs. The unit accepts various input formats, of which two are HDMI. We took special care in the design to reduce noise levels, and we did not burden the unit with complex features that would frustrate users. If you want a reliable unit that does the job, the CLM-HD6 was designed for you. ”

BenQ’s SP890 Presentation Projector

BenQ SP890There has been an increasing demand in the workplace recently for high resolution data projectors. One such projector is the SP890 from BenQ. The SP890 is a 4,000 lumen 1080p DLP projector which is specifically designed for use in presentations and meetings. Where this device differs from other 1080p projectors is that it has a 50,000:1 contrast ratio which makes it perfect for displaying pictures and other images on a big screen. The color is more accurate as well and a 1.5:1 zoom with an H/V lens shift makes installation really easy. Dual 5W speakers are great for a conference room setting.

There are a lot of great features with the SP890 that make it stand out above some of the other projectors of its kind currently on the market. Like I mentioned above, the SP890 has a resolution of 1920×108 giving you full 1080p HD. It also has a max lumen output of 4,000 lumens which is far greater than your typical 1080p projector. There is a 50,000:1 contrast ratio and the black levels are very impressive. Shadow detail is extremely well-defined and high-contrast scenes are presented accurately. Foregrounds seem to pop out of backgrounds and you get a clear sense of depth in high-contrast material.

In terms of color, the SP890 has a Red Gain of 49, Green Gain of 53, Blue Gain of 49, Red Contrast of 47, Green Contrast of 50 and a Blue Contrast of 49. One cool thing about the SP890 is that even though it is a business machine, it has all the flexibility of a home theater projector. Since the SP890 has a 1.5:1 manual zoom/focus lens with H/V lens shift, it makes it easy to place the projector in a lot of common room configurations. Two built-in 5W speakers come with the SP890 and are capable of producing some serious sound quality. At just 50% or 75%, these speakers deliver enough sound to be clearly heard by everybody in a small business meeting or conference. If sound is extremely important, however, then you will want to get an external sound system.

You will find a comprehensive connection panel on the back of the SP890. You will have no problems hooking this projector up to anything, whether it be your new laptop or your mom’s old VCR. The SP890 has HDMI, composite video, VGA, component video, monitor-out, RJ45 wired networking and USB. Unfortunately, you will not find dual HDMI but BenQ wasn’t trying to hide that.

Overall the SP890 is a strong presentation projector ideal for applications requiring high resolution  like photography or even medical imaging and light video use. It is important to know that this is NOT a home theater projector and getting it for that reason alone will waste a lot of your time and money. However, the 50,000:1 contrast ratio is clearly represented on the screen and the accurate colors really make photographs pop. This device is also capable of being used on a very large screen and if you need a bright 1080p projector for data display then you will definitely want the SP890.
