Brilliant, Dynamic Images in Bright Rooms
The Panasonic PT-FRZ55BU(Black Model) Series adds a new Dynamic Contrast 2 setting to its Dynamic Contrast function, which uses digitally controlled scene-linking to directly modulate laser output, to further enhance contrast accuracy. The Quartet Color Harmonizer boosts vibrancy while Rich Color Enhancer adjusts wheel-timing to optimize image quality to suit different picture modes.
Light and Compact Projectors are Easy to Install and Work Silently
The Panasonic PT-FRZ55BU Projector operating noise is suppressed to an inaudible 27 dB in Quiet Mode. A 2.0x optical zoom improves installation flexibility while 4K signal input*5 via CEC-compatible HDMI® and DIGITAL LINK smooths integration with 4K infrastructure. There’s a separate LAN terminal, and a 5 V/2 A USB outlet to support wireless projection.
Proven SOLID SHINE Laser Reliability
The Panasonic PT-FRZ55BU features a high-efficiency filterless cooling system, hermetically sealed DMD block, and dust-resistant shielded laser drive to assure 20,000 hours of stable maintenance-free projection. A linear brightness ramp and strong color retention preserve image quality for longer.
*1 Measurement, measuring conditions, and method of notation all comply with ISO/IEC 21118: 2020 international standards. Value is average of all products when shipped.
*2 Average light-output value of all shipped products measured at center of screen in NORMAL Mode.
*3 FRZ50/FRZ55 only (TBD). FRZ60 operates at 30 dB in Quiet Mode (TBD).
*4 Excluding the Panasonic PT-FRZ55BU.
*5 4K signals are converted to the projector’s resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) upon projection. Supported terminals: DIGITAL LINK/HDMI®.
*6 Around this time, light output will have decreased by approximately 50 %. IEC62087: 2008 Broadcast Contents, NORMAL Mode, Dynamic Contrast 2, temperature 30 °C (86 °F), elevation 700 m (2,297 ft) with 0.15 mg/m3 of airborne particulate matter. Estimated time until brightness decreases to 50 % will vary depending on environment and usage conditions. Parts other than the light source may require replacement before 20,000 hours, and checkup is recommended around this time.
