Deliver More for Less with the 4K High Resolution Compact Design 16,000 lm 3-Chip DLP™ Laser Projector

The PT-RQ18K is 40% smaller and 35% lighter than its predecessor and only a little larger than a typical 10,000 lm class 1-Chip DLP™ projector, unlocking time-saving workflow efficiencies that save resources with transport, handling, and installation, easily managed with a team of two. Explore exciting spatial design possibilities in locations previously too small to fit a 3-Chip DLP™ projector. Innovations such as a miniaturised optical engine and power supply, a high-efficiency cooling system, and revised optical unit materials have resulted in a game-changing design that brings elite 3-Chip DLP™ performance to events of any scale.
