Panasonic’s PT-RQ50K is quite the package. It’s the world’s smallest 50,000 lumens laser projector with native 4K resolution and comes in at half the size (under 370l) and weight (under 130kg) of competitor projectors. A single body, 3-Chip DLP 4K+ Laser Projector, the PT-RQ50K features new red and blue SOLID SHINE laser-phosphor technology.

The key focus here is image projection performance that will deliver new levels of immersive experience at live events and entertainment venues. And considering such mission-critical applications, the PT-RQ50K has been developed with dual solid-state laser-phosphor drives, dual power supplies, redundancy circuits for laser modules, and backup video inputs. Hermetically sealed optics and filter-less design, meanwhile, contribute to 20,000 hours maintenance-free projection in severe conditions.

The PT-RQ50K delivers native 4K resolution at 50,000 lumens with separate Blue and Red phosphor laser technology creating vibrant, pure, and emotionally powerful color reproduction.  The addition of Red laser technology delivers an enhanced color gamut, delivering an image closer to Rec. 2020 and the SMPTE2120 color specification.

The single body PT-RQ50K does not require any additional external chillers or laser racks, thus bringing significant work flow advantages by reducing the time and cost of transport and installation.

The Panasonic PT-RQ50K 50K lumen native 4K projector is now available in the Middle East.
