World’s Smallest, Lightest, and Quietest LCD Projector with 20,000 lm3
Introducing the smallest, lightest, and quietest projector in its class with up to 20,000 lm3 brightness, lightweight 23 kg4 (50.7 lbs) body, and quiet 42 dB5 operation. Refined optical engine ensures clear visibility in well-lit rooms with vivid colour and high brightness. Optimized optical efficiency has resulted in a 25 % increase in brightness from the same body size as the 16,000 lm2 PT-MZ16KL. The compact and sophisticated design harmonizes with open halls and hybrid learning spaces. Images from PT-MZ20K Series are easily visible even in brightly lit areas, making it suitable for a wide range of applications, from large-screen projection at lectures and seminars to powerful exhibition presentations at museums. 

Long-Life Energy-Saving Design Minimizes Problems
Multi-Laser Drive Engine and Backup Input6 enable continuous projection even in the event of trouble. No light-source or filter maintenance is required for 20,000 hours7. The series efficiently delivers high brightness with MZ20KL achieving the lowest power consumption in its class.

Delivering up to 20,000 lm1 on AC 100–240 V, an Industry First9
PT-MZ20K Series is the industry’s first 20,000 lm-class projector delivering full brightness on AC 100–240 V power. It supports NFC function10, optional lenses including
ET-EMU100 Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens, and preactivated upgrade kits for Geo Pro11.

World’s Quietest1 Operation Allows Viewers to Concentrate on Your Presentation

PT-MZ20K Series achieves the world’s quietest operation at 42 dB2. Not only does it keep participants focused, it also contributes to an improved sound environment for applications such as hybrid conferences. When a quieter environment is required, noise level can be further reduced to
36 dB3 by setting the projector to QUIET Mode. This helps create an environment where all viewers can concentrate on the presentation.

Pure White Generator Delivers High Brightness and Rich Color

Pure White Generator, developed by Panasonic Connect, contributes to rich color reproduction at high brightness of up to 20,000 lm1. Efficient light collection uses a multi-reflection system to minimize loss of light-source energy noticeable with conventional systems. It achieves an optimal colour balance without sacrificing brightness for realistic and accurate colour expression.

Dynamic Contrast NX Realizes a New Dimension of Light and Dark Control

Dynamic Contrast NX, a further evolution of Dynamic Contrast, uses a newly developed video-scene analysis circuit to recognize differences in brightness and darkness more precisely than before.

Long-Life Energy-Saving Design Minimizes Problems

Environmentally Friendly Energy-Saving Design, from Transport to Maintenance

Light and compact body improves loading efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions associated with transport. In addition, MZ20KL boasts the world’s lowest power consumption of any projector in its class to reduce resources required for daily operation. Laser light source and filter don’t need to be replaced for 20,000 hours2, minimizing use of consumable parts and other waste. From transportation to operation and maintenance, the environmentally friendly design reduces labour and costs while supporting CSR, SDGs, and other green initiatives.

Multi-Laser Drive Engine Anticipates Unforeseen Circumstances

Multi-Laser Drive Engine ensures stable projection even if light-source problems occur. The projector is equipped with multiple modules consisting of many laser diodes, and in the unlikely event one of the elements malfunctions, Panasonic Connect’s unique Failover Circuitry is activated so that projection can continue with virtually no reduction in brightness. This allows the projector to be used with peace of mind in situations where a drop in brightness could affect important presentations, such as large-scale lectures and seminars.

Long-Term Stability with Unique Liquid-Cooling System and Dustproof Structure

To achieve high brightness and stable operation, we adopted a liquid-cooling system originally developed for our DLP™ projection systems. This efficient design circulates cooling liquid to the light-source modules directly, preventing temperature increases associated with high-brightness projection. Combined with a highly reliable original dustproof structure, the system enables stable performance even in hot, dusty environments.

Backup Input Function for Enhanced Reliability

Backup Input function enables seamless projection even if the input signal is disrupted. With HDMI 1 set as the primary input and HDMI 2 set as the secondary input, the projector switches to HDMI 2 in as little as 0.3 seconds if the signal to HDMI 1 is disrupted. This improves reliability and ensures stable operation in environments where video presentation must not be interrupted.

Information Monitor for Changing Settings and Checking Status

Information Monitor is located on the main unit’s control panel and displays information such as temperature, voltage, operating hours, and input signals in real-time. If a projector error occurs, the error number and associated details are immediately reported. The status of the main unit can be easily checked, and quick recovery from trouble is made possible.

Up to 20,000 lm1 on AC 100–240 V Power

This series is the first in the industry2 to achieve up to 20,000 lm1 on AC 100–240 V input voltage. Conventional projectors require an AC 200–240 V power supply to project at 20,000 lm1, but this series can project images using an ordinary power outlet. This eliminates need for high-voltage power supply installation, and greatly expands the range of situations in which a 20,000 lm-class projector can be deployed.

Data Cloning Function Now Compatible with USB Memory 

Data cloning function allows the user to copy settings and adjustment values from a Main projector to Sub projectors via LAN1 or USB memory device. This function reduces the time and effort required when setting up multiple projectors.

Smart Projector Control App1 for Smooth Installation

Smart Projector Control app1 allows you to control the projector from a smartphone. By scanning the QR code2 displayed on the OSD menu screen or Information Monitor and connecting to wireless LAN, switching input signals and other functions can be performed from a mobile device. In addition to being able to control up to 64 devices simultaneously, it also supports lens adjustment, test-pattern switching, and focus adjustment using your device’s camera3 from a distance of 30 m4

Geometric Adjustment Corrects Trapezoidal Distortion and Curved Screens

With built-in Geometric Adjustment, various distortions on the screen can be corrected via remote control. In addition to trapezoidal distortion resulting from angled projection, Curved Screen Correction fixes distortion caused by projection onto curved surfaces. Corner Correction allows the user to specify four screen corners, such as the upper right and lower right, for correction. Screen proportions can be maintained and corrections can be saved as data.

Free Grid Enables Pinpoint Correction of Local Distortion

In addition to built-in Geometric Adjustment function, Free Grid allows pinpoint correction of local distortion within the screen. Grids between 2 x 2 and 17 x 17 lines can be selected to allow point-by-point correction, or batch correction by specifying vertical and horizontal lines. Correction data is maintained even after changing the number of grids or points, allowing smooth transition from basic to detailed correction. This convenient function allows adjustment of special screens, such as irregular or uneven wall surfaces, with the remote control.

Preactivated Upgrade Kits for Geometry Manager Pro Software

For advanced screen adjustment, PT-MZ20K Series features Geometry Manager Pro software1 which expands built-in functions and enables adjustment from a PC. In addition to the standard functions included in the software, PT-MZ20K Series has built-in upgrade kits that allow access to all functions without license activation. PT-MZ20K Series offers unparalleled smoothness to reduce labour-intensive adjustment with camera-based2 geometric distortion correction, edge-blending, colour-matching, stacking, and automatic adjustment of brightness and black levels.

Black Level Correction to Match Screen Shape

With conventional black level correction, only the width and angle of the black border are specified for correction, making edge-blending on curved screens difficult. To solve this problem, PT-MZ20K Series is equipped with a function that allows the shape of black borders to be adjusted to match the screen shape. Using up to 17 points, flexible black level correction is possible even on curved screens, enhancing the sense of cohesion in multi-screen applications.

Remote Preview LITE1 for Remote Confirmation of Images

With Remote Preview LITE1, you can check input images in advance even when it’s not possible to project content, such as outdoors during the daytime or during performance rehearsals. When your PC and the projector are connected to the network, you can use a web browser or Multi Monitoring & Control Software to display thumbnail images of the input video. Check content even when the shutter is in use or the projector is in Standby2 to quickly identify any problems between the source device and the projector for faster recovery.

Detail Clarity Processor 4 Improves Dimensionality and Sharpness

Panasonic Connect’s unique image quality correction circuitry reproduces details more clearly and sharply. It analyzes video signal frequencies in each scene and adjusts for optimal sharpness based on information extracted from the signal. Compared to conventional image processing technology, this system reproduces images with an even more natural and three-dimensional feel.

Supports 4K Signal Input1

Uncompressed 4K/60p input signals1 are supported via HDMI® or DIGITAL LINK. Since no external devices such as converters are required, 4K signals can be processed smoothly. This eliminates the need for re-encoding when the projector is used with other 4K-compatible equipment, making projection with 4K signals simple and efficient.

Lens Lineup is Compatible with AFO1 (Active Focus Optimizer)

A variety of optional lenses (eight models in total) are available to support a range of screen sizes between 80 and 600 inches, allowing you to select the optimal lens for your projection needs. These lenses are equipped with a temperature sensor and automatically correct focus in conjunction with the projector’s AFO2 function. This technology maintains a sharp image regardless of the brightness of the content, eliminating need for manual focus adjustment. Of course, powered lens-shift and zoom adjustment is also supported via remote control or Smart Projector Control app3.

Compatible with Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens for Space-Saving Installation

ET-EMU100 Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens has a throw ratio of 0.330–0.353:1 and a screen size range of 100–400 inches, and enables large-screen projection even from tight installation spaces. With no gap (offset area) between the ceiling and the screen, ET-EMU100 eliminates need for adjustment and expands the range of visual expression by supporting the zoom function despite its ultra-short focus.
