Dramatic Visuals Take Production to New Heights

  • Deep, Smooth, and Dimensional 4K Images: Quad Pixel Drive produces smooth 4K1 images with fascinating depth. The technology meets demand for absolute visual realism in immersive spaces (particularly museums and 360° projection mapping) by creating detailed images without visible pixels or pixel-gridding, even when viewed up close. Engage your guests in the creator’s world with a true-to-life visual experience that brings the whole story to life.
  • Rich Color Enhancer for Vivid, Accurate Colors: Rich Color Enhancer is an original color optimization technology with two selectable modes. Dynamic Mode balances brightness and color for clear image visibility in bright environments. Standard Mode optimizes color reproduction by expanding red-channel output, leading to more naturally vibrant red expression. This is critical for the accurate reproduction of artwork and other color-rich content.
  • Gradation Smoother to Reduce Color Banding (NEW): Gradation Smoother reduces banding in gradients of shaded color that can become evident in images that lack enough color bit-depth. Use the projector remote to select from three levels of image correction depending on how much banding is present, or disable the function when it’s not needed. Gradation Smoother is a lifesaver when banding is apparent in the projection, and there's no time to re-edit the content.
  • Evolved Dynamic Contrast (NEW): In addition to a higher 25,000:12 contrast ratio, Evolved Dynamic Contrast gains new scene analysis circuitry that more accurately recognizes light and dark areas of the image. The difference between black, white, and contrasting colors stands out more dramatically than ever before. It minimizes dimming when projecting contrast-rich content, and makes black deeper and whites brighter. Each video frame is analyzed in real-time, and light output is continuously adjusted to meet the precise contrast requirements of each scene.
  • Adjust Black Levels on Curved Screens (NEW): Achieving uniform black levels inside blended areas on curved screens has always been difficult. This is because the screen's curvature distorts the width of the black borders that define the adjustment area. Panasonic answers the problem with flexible black-level adjustment to suit arbitrary screen shapes. You can use up to 17 control points to reshape black borders so they fit the screen symmetrically without distortion. Black levels can be set precisely within a half-pixel margin, so blends are indiscernible even when viewing the screen at close range.
  • Adjust Black Levels Inside and Outside the Image Display Area (NEW): Panasonic’s black-level adjustment has evolved to eliminate distracting black-level bumps that can appear in blends outside of the image display area after geometric adjustment is applied. By unlinking black-level adjustment from geometric adjustment, black-level settings can be applied to the entire blend, including the image overlaps outside the image display area, for a completely seamless multi-screen image.
  • Smooth Playback of 2K/240 Hz Content: The REQ12 Series can play 2K/240 Hz3 video with an input-to-output latency of just 6 ms4, smoothly reproducing fast-moving objects and action sequences with minimal blur. High-speed 2K/240 Hz3 content can be displayed over multiple screens with edge-blending enabled, making the  REQ12 Series ideal for sharing gameplay action with audiences at eSports events or for any application where fluid motion and fast response are important. The REQ12 Series also supports Panasonic’s optional ET-SWR105 Real-Time Tracking Projection-Mapping System. This ready-to-use Software Development Kit (SDK) works with infrared cameras to enable image projection onto fast-moving objects at 2K/240 Hz3, enabling the seamless combination of digital and analog worlds in your interactive XR attraction.
  • Supports Widescreen Input Signals (NEW): Single-chip DLP™ projectors are a popular choice for bringing on-site and remote teams together in hybrid conferencing spaces. The latest video-conferencing software can output a 21:9 (2560 x 1080) signal to a REQ12 Series projector so that the faces of remote participants appear along the bottom of the screen at eye level with those seated in the room. This improves communication fluency among members of the group. In addition, with more games, films, and other immersive content produced with a 21:9 aspect ratio, it makes sense to invest in a projector that can deliver a cinematic experience.

Effortless Workflow, Improved Expandability

  • Works with All-New Lens Lineup (NEW): The REQ12 Series works with an all-new lineup of optional fixed, zoom, and ultra-short-throw zoom lenses for selected Panasonic 1-Chip DLP™ projectors, making it possible to deliver immersive experiences in spaces of any size. The lenses, which improve native contrast performance by as much as 16%6, expand the range of powered lens-shift adjustment over previous lenses. They feature Lens Memory and Auto Lens Identification functions and now offer powered periphery focus adjustment7 operable via remote control or the Smart Projector Control8 app. (See Accessories tab.)
  • Wide Scalability with Intel® SDM-ready Slot (NEW): Intel® SDM-ready slot integrates optional proprietary or third-party9 function boards. These function boards reduce installation complexity and make it easier to adapt, scale, and expand your projector’s connectivity to suit different applications and event-site infrastructure. The projector works with Panasonic’s DIGITAL LINK Terminal Board (TY-SB01DL), 12G-SDI Terminal Board (TY-SB01QS), and Wireless Presentation System PressIT Receiver Board (TY-SB01WP), as well as selected third-party9 PC boards, terminal boards, and AVoIP boards.

  • Import and Save Your Custom Test Patterns (NEW): In addition to 10 built-in test patterns, you can now import and save up to three custom test patterns to the projector. You can save your preferred test patterns or use your client’s content to calibrate the projector before the video source is connected. Access compatible BMP or PNG image files saved to USB memory via the Test Pattern menu, where they can be saved, renamed, or deleted using the projector remote control.

  • Smart Projector Control App Smooths Your Workflow: Smart Projector Control10 app simplifies projector setup and operation. Connection is easy: just scan the QR Code11 displayed in the projector’s OSD menu with your smartphone camera. You can control up to 64 projectors simultaneously and adjust settings without needing to project the OSD menu. You can select test patterns, adjust lens settings via the new lens-control UI, lock brightness, and perform focus adjustment using your smartphone camera12 from distances of up to 98 ft (30 m)13 away. 

  • Save Prep Time Before Setup with NFC FunctionNFC function14 allows you to prepare your projector for installation and setup at the event site when AC power is unavailable or when OSD projection isn't possible. Just place your phone on the NFC decal to connect, and use the Smart Projector Control15 app to read and write settings such as Projector ID and IP address. Projectors can be prepped for immediate network connection and set up the moment power rolls out on the installation site, saving time and resources. After the event has concluded, projector settings can be reset to factory defaults while unplugged, an action that used to require OSD menu projection.

  • Flexible Screen Adjustment via Remote Control: Free Grid lets you easily fix image distortion caused by uneven projection surfaces or objects on flat or curved screens using the projector remote control. Reshape the image by adjusting control points or V/H lines on an overlaid grid. Select from various grid resolutions between 2 x 2 and 17 x 17 lines depending on the precision you require. Work progress is saved automatically, and grid and control-point colors can be changed for best visibility over the background image.

  • Pre-activated Upgrade Kits for Geo Pro Software (NEW): The REQ12 Series ships with pre-activated licenses for upgrade kits that come bundled with our free Geometry Manager Pro16 software. ET-UK20 Geometry Manager Pro Software Upgrade Kit expands the software's functionality and adds sophisticated edge-blending, color uniformity, and masking tools. ET-CUK10 Auto Screen Adjustment Upgrade Kit uses data from a connected camera17 to automatically calibrate edge-blended areas by adjusting their brightness, color, and black level, saving you the time and hassle of manual calibration.

  • Quickly Find the Correct Projection Angle (NEW): Laser projectors can be installed at any angle through 360° to map images over floors, walls, and 3D objects. However, adjusting the projection angle to match the one specified in the design simulation can be tricky, especially if the projector is difficult to reach. The REQ12 Series features a gyro sensor that detects changes to the projector's body pitch and roll angles and displays the information graphically in the OSD settings menu. Installers no longer need assistance to check the projection angle as the body is adjusted. They can view the on-screen graphic and adjust the projector angle as necessary before securing the unit.

New Cabinet Design for Reliable Operation

  • Dust-Resistant Optical Engine and Liquid Cooling System (NEW): The REQ12 Series features an optical engine and laser light source module compliant with the IP5X Dust Protected (IEC 60529)18 standard, eliminating the need for an air filter and enabling 20,000 hours19 of maintenance-free projection. Reliability is proven by accelerated dust-chamber testing in significantly dustier conditions than those in which some competitive products are tested. A refined liquid-cooling system enables continuous operation in dusty environments with significantly lower noise levels than the previous series, ideal for quiet spaces such as museums. In addition, the stylish new cabinet design blends unobtrusively into the space to minimize distractions.
  • Remote Preview LITE for Monitoring During Events: Remote Preview LITE lets the projectionist confirm connectivity and assess image adjustment changes prior to video projection by viewing thumbnails of the input signal on a laptop. This is useful at events such as live concerts where opportunities to check content on screen are limited due to sound checks, sunlight on the screen, and other logistical factors. Accessed via software or web browser, Remote Preview LITE works with the projector in Standby20 or with the shutter on and reduces the chance of errors before the performance. (Requires Multi-Monitoring & Control Software Version 3.3 or later.)

  • Backup Input Redundancy: Two identical signals can be simultaneously transmitted to HDMI 1 (Primary) and HDMI 2 (Backup). If transmission to the primary input is interrupted, the projector switches to the backup automatically in a minimum of 0.3 seconds21 without screen-blanking. This layer of insurance gives greater peace of mind during events where image display can't be interrupted. (Note: Primary Input (HDMI 1) and Backup Input (HDMI 2) terminal assignment is fixed. Input signals to primary and backup inputs must be identical.)

  • Highly Reliable Multi-Laser Drive Engine: Multiple laser modules are equipped with our unique Failover Circuitry technology. In the unlikely event a single diode fails, Failover Circuitry continues to supply electricity to the functional diodes in the series, minimizing brightness loss. If the same issue were to occur in projectors without Failover Circuitry, all diodes in the module might shut down, resulting in a significant loss of brightness.
