Harnessing 16,000 lumens at WUXGA resolution with new 15.4 mm (1-inch) LCD panels, Multi-Laser Drive Engine, and Pure White Generator technology, the PT-MZ16KLBU produces consistently sharp and vibrant picture quality.
It is among the first Panasonic LCD models with liquid-cooled lasers which also features dedicated, sealed phosphor-wheel cooling, laser failover circuitry, flexible backup input-switching, and Information Monitor for interruption-free long-life reliability.
This compact projector (weighs under 49.2 lbs with standard lens) supports Panasonic-original Smart Projector Control Ver. 2.0 app and Geo Pro software. Exclusive new lenses eliminate throw-ratio gaps and make integration seamless. It also supports 4K/60p signal input (converted to the projector's WUXGA resolution upon projection).
The SOLID SHINE LCD boosts imagine brightness while reducing your workload, delivering an effortless learning experience. It is ideally suited for house of worship, education and corporate use.
(Lens is sold separately.)
Clear, Long-Lasting Viewing for Efficiency and Comfort
Pure White Generator enriches colors with 16,000 lm brightness — improves color accuracy and create vibrant, natural, true-to-life colors that appear brighter and deeper on screen, regardless of the installation site and ambient light levels.
Reliable Operation Reduces Callouts in Real-World Conditions
Our First LCD Projectors with Liquid Cooling for Multi-Laser Drive (NEW) — allows high-brightness projection in elevated locations and hot environments as well as whisper-quiet 32–38 dB operation.
Panasonic’s original phosphor-wheel sealed cooling system (NEW) — protects against dust-particle intrusion for extended reliability and consistent brightness.
Multi-Laser Drive Engine with failover redundancy circuits — adds an invaluable layer of insurance when image presentation must not be interrupted.
Backup input switching maintains picture display — If signal transmission to the primary input fails, projection continues via the assigned backup input without screen blanking.
New Information Monitor on the rear panel — The monitor provides menu-based navigation for smooth setup of Projector ID and basic network configuration. It also shows projector status including temperature, runtime, and active signal data, as well as error codes should a problem be detected.
Simplified Installation Streamlines Your Workflow
Supports uncompressed 4K/60p video-signal input via HDMI® or DIGITAL LINK terminals
First LCD Projectors to Support Geometry Manager Pro Software (NEW)
Geometric Adjustment with Free Grid correction via remote control — Areas of the image can be reshaped or geometrically altered to compensate for screen distortions
Remote app with NFC (Near Field Communication) function and projector auto-focus via device’s camera (NEW)
New lineup of seven optional lenses with AFO sensor which optimizes focus as lens temperature fluctuates, keeping images pin-sharp and reducing need for manual calibration. (NEW)
