Coinciding with the 2022 CES in Las Vegas, Panasonic has announced a five-year collaboration with AREA15, an immersive event space just off the Las Vegas Strip. AREA15 houses a collection of experiences—such as Dueling Axes and Haley's Comet zip line—food, drink, and entertainment spaces—including the new home of the Lost Spirits Distillery tasting experience— and retail spaces.

One of the prime live event spaces is The Portal, a 7,500-square foot, which utilizes fourteen Panasonic PT-RQ35K 3-chip 4K DLP laser projectors. The projector's dual laser light source that uses blue and red lasers is rated at 30,500 ISO21118 lumens (which use the same measurement process as ANSI lumens). It has three native WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution DLP chips that achieve 4K (3840x2400) resolution with Panasonic's Quad Pixel Drive pixel shifting technology.

The PT-RQ35K is the smallest and lightest 4K projector in its class, allowing for ease of setup in the 360-degree projection mapped room. Panasonic turnkey solutions will include software development and engineering, projection design, and show support.

The Portal at AREA15 is currently home to Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, Klimt: The Immersive Experience, and Rated Red, a burlesque style performance. The space will also host tours of performing artists—including Grammy-nominated trance duo Cosmic Gate later in January and LSDREAM in the spring—as well as corporate events and private parties.

The Panasonic PT-RQ35KU is also sold outside of the United States of America as the Panasonic PT-RQ35KE. Some specifications may be slightly different. Check with Panasonic for complete specifications.

When are you guys gonna review the Panasonic PT-FRQ50?

Mike, it's not in our pipeline right now but we'll consider it. We did review the PT-FRZ60 about a year ago, which has a similar platform but with WUXGA instead of 4K resolution.
