PT-DZ21K Series

3-Chip DLP™ Projectors PT-DZ21K/PT-DS20K/PT-DW17K

Splendid Images from a Compact Body

Incredible 20,000 lm* of Brightness

Panasonic’s unique quad-lamp system, with its new high-power UHM lamps, has helped to make the body
extremely compact while providing an astounding 20,000 lm* of brightness.

* The PT-DW17K has 17,000 lm of brightness.

Astounding 20,000 lm of Brightness

Dynamic Iris for a High 10,000:1* Contrast Ratio

Panasonic’s Dynamic Iris uses a scene-linking aperture mechanism to achieve a remarkable 10,000:1* contrast
without lowering its high brightness. This helps to reproduce deeper, richer blacks, and provides images
with more detailed textures.

* Full on/off, with dynamic iris set to “3”.

Detail Clarity Processor 3 Gives Natural Clarity to Even the Finest Details

This unique Panasonic circuit optimizes the sharpness of each image, based on the
super-high-, high-, medium-, and low-frequency components of the extracted image information. The resulting images have more natural, lifelike expression.

System Daylight View 2 for Enhanced Color Perception

This unique Panasonic technology optimizes image quality to improve the color perception of the projected image in bright rooms.
With a brightness of 20,000 lm*, it provides highly comfortable viewing even in bright lighting, and allows viewers to concentrate easily on the images.

* The PT-DW17K has 17,000 lm of brightness.

DICOM Simulation Mode*

This imaging mode is similar to DICOM part 14, which is a medical imaging standard. It reproduces X-ray images with remarkable clarity.

* This product is not a medical instrument. Do not use it for actual medical diagnosis.

Active 3D Projection Capability (PT-DZ21K/DS20K)

The series is compatible with both passive and active 3D projection systems.
It combines with either a separate, external 100/120/144 Hz drive with IR emitter and active shutter glasses, or an active filter and passive glasses, for viewing 3D images.

3D Image Transmission Format

Frame Sequential

Images for each of the left and right eyes are transmitted alternately at the rate of 60 frames per second.

Frame Packing

Images for the left and right eyes are transmitted in one frame while the resolution for each remains as it is.

Side by Side

Images for the left and right eyes are transmitted in one frame while horizontal resolution is reduced by half.

Top and Bottom

Images for the left and right eyes are transmitted in one frame while the vertical resolution is reduced by half.

Line by Line

Images for the left and right eyes are allocated to odd numbered lines and even numbered lines.

Simultaneous

Images for the left and right eyes are transmitted by using two cables.
