Panasonic PT-D5500U Projector

XGA Large Venue Projector
Calculate Throw Distance

From Panasonic —   The PT-D5500U brings together three advancement DLPTM technology, dual lamp system, and liquid cooling to deliver bright, high-quality images and quiet, reliable operation. Panasonic's acclaimed dual lamp system generates 5,000-lumen brightness, so the vivid, high-resolution images made possible by DLPTM technology are easy to see in any installation environment. In the Dual Lamp system, the lamp relay function in single lamp mode automatically switches the bulb when one of the lamps burns out, allowing continuous, non-stop operation. Panasonic's newly developed liquid-cooling system directly cools the DMD chip, giving the PT-D5500U the reliability needed for 24/7 operation. The cooling system also reduces the number of cooling fans needed, so operating noise is greatly reduced. You'll find the PT-D5500U quiet enough to use almost anywhere.

ANSI LUMENS  is the most commonly accepted industry standard brightness measurement. The ANSI lumen rating measures the brightest white that a projector can produce by averaging nine light meter measurements taken across the projected image.
