High-Contrast Visuals Deepen Engagement
The refined PT-REZ12 Series 1-Chip DLP™ laser projectors feature Evolved Dynamic Contrast with new scene-recognition circuitry for powerful contrast performance. In addition, improved black-level adjustment ensures seamless projection, while Rich Colour Enhancer expands red colour expression for more vibrant colors.
Flexibility and Expandability for Timesaving Workflow
Simplify complex workflows with expanded interfaces, functions, and options. Adapt projection to different applications and environments with new lenses featuring powered peripheral focus, wider lens-shift, and enhanced native contrast. Expand and scale connectivity with proprietary or third-party Intel® SDM-specified function boards, import your own test patterns, prep for setup without AC power via NFC function, and save time with preactivated upgrade kits for Geo Pro.
All-New Compact Body Supports Maintenance-free Projection
The PT-REZ12 Series incorporates a hermetically sealed optical block with all-liquid cooling, sourced from our 3-Chip DLP™ platform, enabling up to 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation. Backup Input prevents screen-blanking by instantly switching to a secondary signal if the primary is disrupted, and high brightness is maintained if a diode fails thanks to Multi-Laser Drive Engine failovers.
Rich Colour Enhancer for Vivid, Accurate Colours
Rich Colour Enhancer is an original colour optimisation technology with two selectable modes. Dynamic Mode balances brightness and colour for clear image visibility in bright environments. Standard Mode optimises colour reproduction by expanding red-channel output, leading to more naturally vibrant red expression. This is critical for the accurate reproduction of artwork and other colour-rich content in digital museums, art galleries, and other edutainment attractions.
Compatible with All-New Lens Lineup
The PT-REZ12 Series works with an all-new lineup of optional fixed, zoom, and ultra-short-throw zoom lenses for selected Panasonic 1-Chip DLP™ projectors, making it possible to deliver immersive experiences in spaces of any size and shape. The lenses, which improve native contrast performance by as much as 16%1 while reducing unwanted chromatic aberration, expand the range of powered lens-shift adjustment over previous lenses. The lenses feature Lens Memory and Auto Lens Identification functions and now offer powered peripheral focus adjustment2 operable via remote control or the Smart Projector Control3 app.
Note: A standard lens (equivalent to ET-C1S600) is included with selected models. Availability may depend on the region of sale. ET-C1W300 (0.550–0.690), ET-C1W400 (0.680–0.950:1), ET-C1W500 (0.940–1.39:1), and ET-C1T700 (2.07–3.38:1) ship in CY2023 Q3. ET-C1U100 (0.308–0.330:1) ships CY2023 Q4.

Wide Scalability with Intel® SDM-ready Slot
Intel® SDM-ready slot integrates optional proprietary or third-party function boards. These function boards reduce installation complexity and make it easier to adapt, scale, and expand your projector’s connectivity to suit different applications and event-site infrastructure. The projector works with Panasonic’s DIGITAL LINK Terminal Board (TY-SB01DL), 12G-SDI Terminal Board (TY-SB01QS), and Wireless Presentation System PressIT Receiver Board (TY-SB01WP), as well as selected third-party PC boards, terminal boards, and AVoIP boards.
Import and Save Your Custom Test Patterns
In addition to 10 built-in test patterns, you can now import and save up to three custom test patterns to the projector. You can save your preferred test patterns or use your client’s content to calibrate the projector before the video source is connected. Access compatible BMP or PNG image files saved to USB memory via the Test Pattern menu, where they can be saved, renamed, or deleted using the projector remote control.
Note: Supports PNG (1/8/16/24/32/48/64-bit, non-transparent, alpha blending disabled) and BMP (1/8/24-bit) formats with a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2400 dots.
Smart Projector Control App Smooths Your Workflow
Smart Projector Control app simplifies projector setup and operation. Connection is easy: just scan the QR Code displayed in the projector’s OSD menu with your smartphone camera. You can control up to 64 projectors simultaneously and adjust settings without needing to project the OSD menu. You can select test patterns, adjust lens settings via the new lens-control UI, lock brightness, and perform focus adjustment using your smartphone camera from distances of up to 30m away.
Remote Preview LITE for Monitoring During Events
Remote Preview LITE lets the projectionist confirm connectivity and assess image adjustment changes prior to video projection by viewing thumbnails of the input signal on a laptop. This is useful at events such as live concerts where opportunities to check content on screen are limited due to soundchecks, sunlight on the screen, and other logistical factors.
Dust-Resistant Optical Engine and Liquid Cooling System
With a new cabinet design for more reliable operation, the PT-REQ12 Series features an optical engine and laser light source module compliant with the IP5X Dust Protected (IEC 60529)1 standard, eliminating the need for an air filter and enabling 20,000 hours2 of maintenance-free projection. Reliability is proven by accelerated dust-chamber testing in significantly dustier conditions than those in which some competitive products are tested. A refined liquid-cooling system enables continuous operation in dusty environments with significantly lower noise levels than the previous series, ideal for quiet spaces such as museums. In addition, the stylish new cabinet design blends unobtrusively into the space to minimise distractions.
1 The dust-proof performance of this unit is not guaranteed to be free from damage or failure under all conditions (environment with conductive dust, etc.). Please use an enclosure in environments with smoke containing oil, salt, and moisture.
2 Around this time, the light output will have decreased by approximately 50%. IEC62087: 2008 Broadcast Contents, NORMAL Mode, Dynamic Contrast , temperature 30°C, elevation 700m with 0.15 mg/m3 of airborne particulate matter. Panasonic recommends a checkup at the point of purchase after about 20,000 hours. Light-source lifetime may be reduced depending on the environmental conditions. Replacement of parts other than the light source may be required in a shorter period. Estimated maintenance time varies depending on the environment.
Backup Input Redundancy
Two identical signals can be simultaneously transmitted to HDMI 1 (Primary) and HDMI 2 (Backup). If transmission to the primary input is interrupted, the projector switches to the backup automatically in a minimum of 0.3 seconds without screen-blanking. This layer of insurance gives greater peace of mind during events where image display can’t be interrupted.
Note: Primary Input (HDMI 1) and Backup Input (HDMI 2) terminal assignment is fixed. Input signals to primary and backup inputs must be identical.
Highly Reliable Multi-Laser Drive Engine
Multiple laser modules are equipped with our unique Failover Circuitry technology. In the unlikely event a single diode fails, Failover Circuitry continues to supply electricity to the functional diodes in the series, minimising brightness loss. If the same issue were to occur in projectors without Failover Circuitry, all diodes in the module might shut down, resulting in a significant loss of brightness.
