Panasonic will launch a new 20,000 lumens projector at ISE 2017, a replacement for the PT-DZ21K. Panasonic says this unit has been Europe’s best-selling high-brightness projector and they expect the replacement model to be the new reference projector in the rental industry.
In addition, the company is set to demonstrate its live events capability, with a show combining laser projection technology, 3D mapping and performers interacting with moving projection courtesy of the newly launched PT-RZ31K, a 31,000 lumens laser projector developed for the live market.
The Panasonic PT-RZ31K has recently been put to the test by Warpro, the first UK rental company to commit to the newly launched 30,000 lumens laser projector. Warpro used the projector for an installation in tandem with Edinburgh’s ‘Street of Light’ celebration, battling 300 lux of ambient light with a projector positioned just 12 metres from the building to create a projection on the Tigerlily Hotel on the city’s George Street.
ISE 2017 will also see the launch of LinkRay, introduced as a concept at ISE 2016, the 1-2-1 marketing solution uses individual codes within LED light sources as a source of information. LinkRay will be embedded inside a new display line up and, in addition, visitors to the stand will have the option to download product information, direct to their smart phones, from light plates throughout the stand.
The Panasonic stand will be split into audiovisual solutions for the education, corporate, public displays and live event sectors. Hartmut Kulessa, European Projector Marketing Manager at Panasonic, said, “Our annual showcase is fast becoming a tradition at ISE and this year we will create a live event display, which uses the latest AV techniques and is sure to stop people in their tracks.”
