Combining WUXGA resolution with Laser technology has made this series projector an award winner. This model does not include a standard lens but has many to choose from. The PTRZ690LBU was designed to be used for long periods of time with minimum maintenance required. Deepen immersion in any environment with vivid, accurate colours backed by up to 6000 lumens of brightness thanks to Quartet Colour Harmonizer and 1-Chip DLP™ imaging technology. With support for 4K/60p input signals, separate DIGITAL LINK and LAN terminals, and diverse optional lenses, these projectors reduce installation hassles with convenient flexibility. The Panasonic PT-RZ690LBU is built to last, engineered for 20,000 hours of maintenance-free reliability with lasting brightness and colour uniformity from the industry’s leading dust-resistant optical engine.
Panasonic Quartet Colour Harmonizer Realizes High Brightness and Accurate Colours
Expect saturated colour and finely expressed detail from next-generation 1-Chip DLP™ technology without sacrificing brightness thanks to Quartet Colour Harmonizer, an original colour-wheel technology with an optimized optical design that precisely modulates light-source output according to colour requirements.
Excellent Uniformity for Multi-Screen Projection
1-Chip DLP™ technology allows for great uniformity between adjoining screens. The minimal variation between DMDs allows images from the Panasonic PT-RZ690LBU Series to be easily blended for a more immersive viewing experience.
Supports 4K/60p Signal Input
Panasonic PT-RZ690LBU Series supports uncompressed 4K/60p signal input* via HDMI® or DIGITAL LINK terminals. The ability to play Ultra HD video at the projector’s actual resolution is useful when the same signal is distributed to multiple endpoints of different display resolutions, making the hassle and expense of external converters a thing of the past. These projectors fit your system infrastructure and work flawlessly with other 4K-ready display devices.
* 4K signals are converted to the projector’s resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels) upon projection.
Separate LAN and DIGITAL LINK Terminals
Separate LAN and HDBase-T™-based DIGITAL LINK terminals allow 100Base-TX- and 10BaseT-compatible control signals via Panasonic, Crestron®, AMX, and Extron® applications to be assigned to a dedicated LAN connection, freeing the DIGITAL LINK pipeline for video over cable runs of up to 150 m (492 ft).
Optional Lenses Offer New Creative Possibilities
The Panasonic PT-RZ690LBU is compatible with eleven optional interchangeable lenses cover every installation situation at wide throw-distances from 0.280:1 to 8.58:1. Compatible lenses include the ET-DLE020 Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens. As the world’s first UST lens with optical zoom, a range of post-installation adjustments are enabled via zoom and V/H lens-shift with zero screen offset. The mirrorless, aspherical glass lens suits compact projector bodies to enable front- or rear-projection in spaces otherwise too small to support short-throw projection.

Smart Projector Control
Smart Projector Control is a mobile app enabling remote control of select projectors. Install on your iPhone or Android™ phone or tablet, connect to your compatible projectors via Wi-Fi (LAN), and control functions including lens adjustment, input switching, status monitoring, and more. The app also features a handy auto-focus function that uses the smartphone’s camera to achieve precise projector focus.

Geometric Adjustment with Free Grid Correction
Panasonic PTRZ690Lbu benefits from a proprietary Free Grid function built into onboard Geometric Adjustment that supports grid-based image adjustment via remote control. Grid resolutions of 2 x 2, 3 x 3, 5 x 5, 9 x 9, or 17 x 17 can be projected and areas of the image reshaped or geometrically altered to fix screen distortion. This correction is performed by adjusting control-points at grid-line intersections. Move freely between grid resolutions to achieve the desired level of granularity without losing work progress. This clever data-saving function allows technicians to quickly create a distortion-free image.
Filterless Projector Structure with Airtight Optical Block
The Panasonic PT-RZ690Lbu uses a Heat-pipe-based filterless cooling, dust-resistant architecture, and efficient airflow path enable deployment of a hermetically sealed optical engine. With dust resistance exceeding the industry’s toughest guidelines, you’re assured of a linear brightness ramp, superior colour uniformity, and maintenance-free projection for 20,000 hours*1. These benefits are welcome when the projector is installed in a difficult-to-access location.
Around this time, the light output will have decreased by approximately 50 %.

Estimated time until brightness decreases to 50 % varies depending on environment and usage conditions
Dual Lasers for Failsafe Reliability
Dual laser optical engine groups diodes into two discrete modules. A redundancy circuit works to minimize brightness- and colour-uniformity loss in the unlikely event a diode fails, making the supported products ideal for applications where picture presentation must be maintained.
Backup Input Setting Protects Picture Display
Projectors can be configured to switch instantaneously to a backup input-signal should the primary signal be disrupted. This layer of insurance is invaluable in control rooms, security and surveillance applications, and for live events where image projection must not be interrupted.
Contrast Sync and Shutter Sync Function
Contrast Sync, designed for multi-screen applications, allows dynamic contrast control to be synchronized for consistent picture quality across screens. Shutter Sync, meanwhile, synchronizes shutter on/off timing.
Multi-Unit Brightness and Colour Control
Sensors detect colour and brightness apparent on screen. Projectors automatically calibrate for a uniform multi-screen image, adding a layer of convenience and cost-saving for long-term events.
Multi-screen Support System
Optimally adjusts multiple screens with edge blending, colour matching, and digital image enlargement.
Geometry Manager Pro Software and Upgrade Kits
Download free Geometry Manager Pro software to expand geometric and multi-screen setup and calibration capabilities via PC. The suite includes two upgrade kits that can be optionally unlocked with paid key codes. ET-UK20 adds uniformity correction and extensive creative masking capabilities. ET-CUK10 features Auto Screen Adjustment which enables simultaneous setup (including curved-screen correction) of multiple projectors for multi-screen applications using a compatible camera. This streamlines edge-blending, colour-matching, black-level, stacking, and brightness uniformity calibration.
The data-cloning function allows various settings and configuration data*1 to be copied from a master projector to up to 99 slave projectors*2. Alternatively, the data can be cloned to slave projectors via LAN. This feature simplifies and expedites the setup process for multi-unit projection applications.
