Panasonic PT-VMZ60U

Overview

Panasonic PT-VMZ60U

Portable LCD Projector

Flexibility defines the PT-VMZ60 Series, the world’s lightest LCD laser projectors developing up to 6,000 lm from a 7.2 kg (15.87 lbs) body. Carry it easily from room to room and let the 1.6x zoom and vertical/horizontal Lens-Shift perfectly align large-format pictures on screen in spaces big or small.

Easy setup is invaluable for permanent installation, where DIGITAL LINK and 4K signal input simplify integration. As a SOLID SHINE Laser projector, light-source operation extends to 20,000 hours with bright color maintained for longer. Designed for tomorrow to work hard today, the PT-VMZ60 Series is the smarter investment.

Key Features of the PT-VMZ60U

  • Bright and Compact  6,000 lumens at WUXGA resolution from a compact, stylish 7.2 kg (15.87 lbs) body, bringing dynamic images to any space.
  • Supreme Efficiency — SOLID SHINE Laser light-source delivers 20,000 hours of consistent brightness and color accuracy.
  • Flexible Installation — 1.6x zoom, vertical/horizontal lens shift, and short 1.09:1 throw-ratio perfectly align large-format pictures on screen in spaces big or small.
  • Future-ready Connections — Supports 4K signal input via HDMI® or DIGITAL LINK terminals, which simplify integration.

Features

Vivid Images in Bright Environments

SOLID SHINE Laser phosphor drive with advanced LCD optical engine projects bright, vivid, and detailed images regardless of artificial light levels in the room. 

High Brightness from a Compact Body

Deploy 6,000 lm*1 of brightness from a projector weighing just 7.2 kg (15.87 lbs), currently the smallest and lightest LCD laser projector series in the world*2

No Light-Source Replacement for 20,000 Hours

Laser light-source operation extends up to 20,000 hours3, lowering maintenance cost, labor, and waste when compared to lamp-based alternatives.

High 3,000,000:1 Contrast

High-precision digital laser light output modulation achieves 3,000,000:14 dynamic contrast while minimizing power consumption. High-contrast performance adds depth, dimensionality, and realism to video, defining details in shadows even when bright and dark scenes frequently interchange.

A Clearer View with Daylight View Basic

Daylight Basic View enhances sharpness by optimizing detail reproduction in dark areas of the image, which can be difficult to see in bright light. 

Reusable Air Filter Extends Maintenance

In areas with average levels of dust, such as classrooms and offices, the projector’s air filter doesn’t require maintenance for up to 20,000 hours5. The eco-friendly filter can be washed and reused up to two times, saving on replacement costs.

1.6x Zoom Lens and Lens Shift Function

The 1.6x zoom lens with flexible 1.09–1.77:1 throw-ratio enables large-format projection from close up or far away from the screen. Wide-range Vertical/Horizontal Lens-Shift aligns the image to fit the projection surface in moments. This is handy when the projection position is too high, too low, or off-center.

Supports 4K signal input

4K/30p signal input*6 via HDMI® or DIGITAL LINK terminals enable seamless integration into existing or planned 4K-ready system infrastructure.

Single-Cable DIGITAL LINK Solution

A dedicated DIGITAL LINK terminal transmits AV and control signals via LAN cable for up to 150 m (492 ft)*7 and 4K video for up to 50 m (164 ft)*8. Optional DIGITAL LINK Switcher*9 and Digital Interface Box*4 reduce complexity, acting as a hub for connected sources and routing signals to the projector via one cable. A separate LAN terminal offers dedicated control interface if preferred.

Screen Adjustment Function

Screen Adjustment fits the image to the screen when projecting from an unusual angle. Curved Screen Correction removes barrel or pincushion distortion for natural projection onto curved surfaces.

Convenient Shutter Function

A button on top of the unit or the remote blocks light output temporarily. It’s useful whenever you don’t require image display, but want the projector powered on, cued up, and ready to go again instantly.

Quick Start and Quick Off

The projector’s laser light-source doesn’t need time to warm up, so images appear almost instantaneously in Quick Start/Quick Off Standby Mode10. There’s no cool-down required—it’s safe to switch the unit off at any time.

Wireless Projection Function with Optional Module

Project wirelessly via PC using Presenter Light for Windows® or Panasonic Wireless Projector app*11 for iOS and Android™ devices by connecting the optional AJ-WM50P Wireless Module to the projector’s USB input.

Memory Viewer Light Function

You don't need to connect a computer to start presenting—just insert a USB memory stick containing your media and start projecting straight away.

Multi Monitoring & Control Software

Manage up to 2,048 devices via network with system map visualization and auto-search of unregistered devices. The free software is available with Early Warning functions (free 90-day trial12). These enable real-time monitoring, abnormality detection, and much more. (See Downloads tab.)
