Panasonic PT-DZ870ULK Projector

WUXGA Large Venue Projector
Calculate Throw Distance

From Panasonic — Panasonic's Dynamic Iris uses a scene-linking aperture mechanism to achieve a remarkable 10,000:1 contrast without lowering its high brightness. This helps to reproduce deeper, richer blacks and provides images with more detailed textures. Panasonic's RGB Booster achieves high image quality with levels of color reproduction and brightness that make each color stand out. It combines Panasonic's proprietary Vivid Color Control technology with a Lamp Modulation Drive System for a 1-chip DLP projector that produces bright and vivid colors.
