The World’s Smallest and Lightest 20,000 lm* 3-Chip DLP™ 4K* Projector

PT-RQ25K Series is 40 % smaller and 35 % lighter*3 than PT-RQ22K and only a little larger than our 10,000-lm-class 1-Chip DLP™ models. Unlock time-saving workflow efficiencies that save resources with transport, handling, and installation easily managed with a team of two. Explore exciting spatial design possibilities in locations previously too small to fit a 3-Chip DLP™ projector. Innovations such as miniaturized optical engine and power supply, high-efficiency cooling system, and revised optical unit materials have resulted in a game-changing design that brings elite 3-Chip DLP™ performance to events of any scale.

Note: Based on publicly available dimensions and weight for DLP™ laser projectors with 16,000 lm brightness and above as of January 2022.

Remote Preview LITE for Monitoring During Events

Remote Preview LITE lets the projectionist confirm video-signal integrity by viewing thumbnails of the input signal on a laptop prior to projection. Accessed via software or web browser, Remote Preview LITE works with the projector in Standby or with the shutter on. It’s useful at events such as concerts where opportunities to check content on screen are limited due to stage traffic, soundchecks, sunlight on the screen, and other logistical factors. Remote Preview LITE reduces chance of errors before the performance, and if an error is detected, helps narrow down the possible cause to the signal.

Note: Requires Multi-Monitoring & Control Software Version 3.2 or later available free here. For more information, click here.

Wide Scalability with Intel® SDM-ready Slot

Intel® SDM-ready slot integrates optional proprietary or third-party* function boards. These function boards reduce installation complexity and make it easier to adapt, scale, and expand your projector’s connectivity to suit different applications now and in the future. The projector works with Panasonic’s DIGITAL LINK Terminal Board (TY-SB01DL), 12G-SDI Terminal Board (TY-SB01QS), and Wireless Presentation System PressIT Receiver Board (TY-SB01WP), as well as selected third-party1 PC boards, terminal boards, and AVoIP boards.

*Third-party Intel® SDM-specified function boards sold separately. A list of third-party function boards tested for compatibility with PT-RQ25K Series is to be announced. Panasonic cannot guarantee operation of third-party devices with PT-RQ25K Series.

Smooth 4K* Images with Quad Pixel Drive

Quad Pixel Drive, Panasonic’s original 2-axis pixel-quadrupling technology, shifts each pixel vertically and horizontally at high speed to produce sharp, clear, detail-rich images at a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2400 pixels (16:10)*. Combined with high DMD pixel density and narrow aperture ratio, Quad Pixel Drive creates smooth 4K* images with immersive depth and definition.

* PT-RQ25K/RQ18K only with Quad Pixel Drive [ON].

Newly Improved Dynamic Contrast

Panasonic’s Dynamic Contrast technology has evolved to 25,000:1*. In addition to the high contrast ratio, Dynamic Contrast gains new image-scene analysis that enables more detailed recognition of light and dark areas and better contrast expression. The technology analyzes content frame-by-frame and digitally adjusts light output according to the contrast requirements of each scene.

* Full On/Full Off with Dynamic Contrast set to [3]. Measurement, measuring conditions, and method of notation all comply with ISO/IEC 21118: 2020 international standards.

Reliable and Maintenance-free for Peace of Mind

Multi Laser Drive Engine with Failover Circuitry

Multiple laser modules are equipped with Panasonic’s unique Failover Circuitry. In the unlikely event a single diode fails, Failover Circuitry continues to supply electricity to the functional diodes in the series, minimizing brightness loss. If the same issue were to occur in projectors without Failover Circuitry, all diodes in the module may shut down, resulting in significant loss of brightness. Multi Laser Drive Engine gives peace of mind in mission-critical situations when image display cannot be interrupted.
