Panasonic PT-RZ990LWU

Compact and Flexible 1-Chip DLP Projector with 9400 ANSI Lumens

Deliver elite color performance in any exhibition space. The Panasonic PT-RZ990LWU 1-Chip DLP projector produces the brightness, resolution, and color that designers need to enhance exhibits with bright, bold, and vivid pictures.

Experience deep immersion in any environment with vivid, accurate colors backed by 10,000 center lumens (9400 ANSI lumens) of brightness thanks to Quartet Color Harmonizer color-wheel optimization, WUXGA resolution and 1-Chip DLP™ imaging technology.

The PT-RZ990LWU is engineered for 20,000 hours of maintenance-free reliability with lasting brightness and color uniformity from the industry’s leading dust-resistant optical engine.

With support for 4K/60p input signals, separate DIGITAL LINK and LAN terminals, and diverse optional lenses, this Panasonic projector reduces installation hassles with convenient flexibility.

To compete with other forms of entertainment and education, museums are looking at new ways to make guests feel like they are part of the exhibits. At the same time, houses of worship are turning to technology to increase congregation attendance by making ceremonies more visually engaging. Because both rely on limited staff, technology that’s easy to deploy and use, such as the Panasonic PT-RZ990LWU, is critical to success.

Note: This model is white and does not include a lens.

Key Features:

  • Laser 1-chip DLP, 10,000 lumens (center) / 9,400 lumens (ANSI), WUXGA resolution
  • Quartet Color Harmonizer technology for more accurate color reproduction
  • Maintenance-free up to 20,000 hours with dust-resistant optical block and long lasting laser engine
  • Supports 4K/60p signal input, separate DIGITAL LINK and LAN terminals


Power to Impress with Accurate Colors

  • High Brightness and Accurate Colors: Expect saturated color and finely expressed detail from next-generation 1-Chip DLP™ technology without sacrificing brightness thanks to Quartet Color Harmonizer, an original color-wheel technology with optimized optical design. It precisely modulates light-source output according to color requirements.
  • Excellent Uniformity for Multi-Screen Projection: 1-Chip DLP™ technology allows for great uniformity between adjoining screens. Minimal variation between DMDs allows images to be easily blended for a more immersive viewing experience.
  • System Daylight View 3 Technology: stops the picture washing out in bright light and preserves brightness, contrast, and color especially in museum and halls. It uses sensor information to adjust sharpness, gamma curves, and color to suit on-site lighting conditions.


Easy to Install and Integrate

  • Smart Projector Control Mobile App: enables remote control of select projectors. Install on your iPhone or Android™ phone or tablet, connect to your compatible projectors via Wi-Fi® (LAN), and control functions including lens adjustment, input switching, status monitoring, and more. The app also features a handy auto-focus function (not supported on some mobile devices) that uses the smartphone’s camera to achieve precise projector focus, saving time on installation.
  • Geometric Adjustment with Free Grid Correction: proprietary function built into onboard Geometric Adjustment that supports grid-based image adjustment via remote control. Grid resolutions of 2 x 2, 3 x 3, 5 x 5, 9 x 9, or 17 x 17 can be projected and areas of the image reshaped or geometrically altered to fix screen distortion. This correction is performed by adjusting control-points at grid-line intersections. Move freely between grid resolutions to achieve the desired level of granularity without losing work progress. This clever data-saving function allows technicians to quickly create a distortion-free image.
  • Expanded Lens Lineup Widens the Scope of Installation: 11 optional interchangeable lenses cover every installation situation at wide throw distances from 0.280:1 to 8.58:1. Compatible lenses include the ET-DLE020 Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens. As the world’s first1 UST lens with optical zoom, a range of post-installation adjustments are enabled via zoom and V/H lens-shift with zero screen offset. The mirrorless, aspherical glass lens suits compact projector bodies to enable front- or rear-projection in spaces otherwise too small to support short-throw projection.
  • Supports Uncompressed 4K Signal Input2: via HDMI® or DIGITAL LINK terminals. The ability to play Ultra HD video at the projector’s actual resolution is useful when the same signal is distributed to multiple endpoints of differing display resolutions, making the hassle and expense of external converters a thing of the past. These projectors fit your system infrastructure and work flawlessly with other 4K-ready display devices.
  • Separate LAN and HDBase-T™-based DIGITAL LINK Terminals: allow 100Base-TX- and 10BaseT-compatible control signals via Panasonic, Crestron®, AMX, and Extron® applications to be assigned to a dedicated LAN connection, freeing the DIGITAL LINK pipeline for video over cable runs of up to 150 m (492 ft)3.


Reliable Even in Harsh Conditions

  • Filterless Projector Structure with Airtight Optical Block: Heat-pipe-based4 filterless cooling, dust-resistant architecture, and efficient airflow path enable deployment of a hermetically sealed optical engine. With dust resistance exceeding the industry’s toughest guidelines, you’re assured of a linear brightness ramp, superior color uniformity, and maintenance-free projection for 20,000 hours5. These benefits are welcome when the projector is installed in a difficult-to-access location.
  • Dual Lasers for Failsafe Reliability: Dual laser optical engine groups diodes into two discrete modules. A redundancy circuit works to minimize brightness- and color-uniformity loss in the unlikely event a diode fails, making supported products ideal for applications where picture presentation must be maintained.
  • Backup Input Setting Protects Picture Display: Projectors can be configured to switch instantaneously to a backup input-signal should the primary signal be disrupted6. This layer of insurance is invaluable in control rooms, security and surveillance applications, and for live events where image projection must not be interrupted.
  • Multi Monitoring & Control Software with Early Warning Functions: Manage up to 2,048 devices via network with convenient system-map visualization and auto-search of unregistered devices. The free software is available with Early Warning Functions (automatic free 90-day trial available7). These enable real-time monitoring, abnormality detection, and more.


Other Features

  • SOLID SHINE Laser Maintains Picture Quality for Longer: Thanks to two long-lasting solid-state laser modules, there are no lamps to replace, and color and brightness decline gradually in consistent, linear fashion. As well as reducing maintenance hassle, out-of-the-box picture quality is preserved for longer.
  • Dynamic Light Control for High Contrast: directly modulates laser output to achieve high contrast with less power consumption. Digitally controlled frame-by-frame scene-linking modulation ensures precise light output adjustment while accurate contrast is delivered even when bright and dark scenes frequently interchange.
  • Detail Clarity Processor 3: This unique Panasonic circuitry optimizes the sharpness of each image based on information gathered from four frequency bands of the video signal. The resulting images are expressed with natural, convincing realism.
  • Contrast Sync and Shutter Sync Function: Contrast Sync, designed for multi-screen applications, allows dynamic contrast control to be synchronized for consistent picture quality across screens. Shutter Sync, meanwhile, synchronizes shutter on/off timing.
  • Multi-Unit Brightness and Color Control: Sensors detect color and brightness apparent on screen. Projectors automatically calibrate for a uniform multi-screen image, adding a layer of convenience and cost saving for long-term events.
  • Multi-screen Support System: Optimally adjusts multiple screens with edge blending, color matching, and digital image enlargement.
    • Edge Blending: Edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their brightness controlled.
    • Color Matching: Corrects color reproduction variations of each projector via PC control software.
    • Digital Image Enlarging: Digital zoom up to 10X (H/V8). Up to 100 images (10 x 10) can be edge-blended to create a large multi-screen image.
  • Single-Cable DIGITAL LINK Connection: DIGITAL LINK transmits uncompressed video, audio9, and control commands through a single CAT 5e STP cable for distances of up to 150 m (492 ft)10. Optional DIGITAL LINK Switcher or Digital Interface Box further simplifies installation, reduces cabling and associated costs, and enhances reliability.

  • Quick Start and Quick Off: The laser light-source doesn’t require any time to warm up, so images appear almost instantly. There’s also no cool-down period when turning the power off at the mains or room breaker — the projector can be turned on and off any time as necessary.

  • Geometry Manager Pro Software and Upgrade Kits: Download free Geometry Manager Pro software to expand geometric and multi-screen setup and calibration capabilities via PC. The suite includes two upgrade kits that can be optionally unlocked with paid key codes. ET-UK20 adds uniformity correction and extensive creative masking capabilities. ET-CUK10 features Auto Screen Adjustment which enables simultaneous setup (including curved-screen correction) of multiple projectors for multi-screen applications using a compatible camera. This streamlines edge-blending, color-matching, black-level, stacking, and brightness uniformity calibration.

  • Data-Cloning Function: Data-cloning function allows various settings and configuration data11 to be copied from a main projector to up to 99 sub projectors12. Alternatively, the data can be cloned to sub projectors via LAN. This feature simplifies and expedites the setup process for multi-unit projection applications.

  • Selectable Operational Modes: Select your preferred operational mode to balance brightness decline with brightness output according to the specific requirements of individual applications.
