Panasonic has released its newest 4K laser projector, the PT-FRQ50. Much anticipated by the local market, this model offers ultra-fine, ultra-clear imaging via the company’s Quad Pixel Drive technology.

Chris Maw, Product Marketing Manager Projectors & Commercial Displays at Panasonic System Solutions Oceania said: “This projector offers the future-proofing of 4K in a compact chassis, with a 2x zoom lens to bring large image sizes to confined areas. This versatility and convenience are backed with the reliability and low-maintenance delivered by Panasonic’s laser technology.”

He explained: “With laser projection and filterless cooling, there’s no need for constant maintenance, saving time and cost. Customers can simply enjoy the benefits of a projector that offers impressively sharp big screen viewing in any situation. It can be installed in a range of rooms, with a wide image shift for those challenging spaces where projector and screen positioning may not be centred.”

From corporate presentations to classrooms and museum exhibitions, the PT-FRQ50 delivers smooth and richly detailed 4K (3840 x 2160) images. Furthermore, it also supports 240Hz/1080p frame rates with minimal input-to-output latency of under 8ms -– widening its scope to fluid motion requirements, such as simulation and e-sports.

The PT-FRQ50 will be available to customers via the Panasonic authorised network of reseller partners from January 2022.


Key capabilities

To meet the rising demand for ultra-fine detail resolution, Panasonic added Quad Pixel Drive to its proven 1-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser projection technology to create the 5,200 lumen PT-FRQ50 projector.

Quad Pixel Drive, Panasonic’s original pixel-quadrupling technology, produces extraordinarily detailed 4K images that retain natural sharpness and clarity. High-speed 240Hz processing and a narrow DMD aperture ratio creates an impressive sense of realism with the finest details and textures resolved in smooth, grid-less images. Rich Colour Enhancer produces accurate colours for faithful content reproduction.

Ensuring a long and trouble-free lifetime, the highly reliable and low-maintenance projector offers up to 20,000-hour maintenance-free operation, while Multi Monitoring & Control Software streamline maintenance and optional Early Warning functions can prevent unexpected downtime.

This versatile projector can address a wide range of projection applications and 4K installation environments. The PT-FRQ50 includes two HDMI inputs that support CEC commands from compatible devices; an easy-to-integrate DIGITAL LINK connection for 4K video and control-signal transmission over long distances; and separate LAN terminal for control.

The 2.0x zoom lens brings large image sizes to confined spaces with flexible throw-distances. Combined with a wide V/H Lens Shift (V: +71%, -49%, H: +34%, -27%), it provides more freedom to adjust projector location and image position. Geometric adjustment is easily performed using Free Grid via remote control without the need for a PC, while preactivated upgrade kits for Geometry Manager Pro[1] enable automatic calibration of multiple screens simultaneously via camera, and an expanded range of software-based geometric adjustment and sophisticated masking capabilities. Remote Preview Lite allows input-video checks on a PC without image projection.
