Quad Pixel Drive Goes Beyond 4K
The PT-RQ13K achieves better-than-4K resolution by employing a high-speed 2560 x 1600-pixel (WQXGA) DMD chip that shifts each pixel vertically and horizontally, effectively quadrupling the pixel count. Working together with Real Motion Processor 240 Hz frame-creation technology, Quad Pixel Drive produces stunningly detailed 5120 x 3200-pixel (4K , 16:10) images that retain natural sharpness and clarity when upscaling from a native Full HD source. As well as producing liquid-smooth and accurate video, the added detail also makes small text clearly legible on images used in presentations and lectures.
Pixel Quadrupling Technology
Shifting pixels vertically and horizontally creates ultra-high-resolution pictures that exceed standard UltraHD
New Real Motion Processor
Panasonic’s unique high-speed 240 Hz frame-creation technology for up to 5120 x 3200-pixel (16:10) images ensures the smoothest reproduction of fast-moving 4K sequences.
Original Panasonic Technology Reduces Motion Blur Real Motion Processor uses sophisticated algorithms to create three additional frames for each image, boosting native 60 fps footage to 240 frames per second. The result is incredibly smooth and realistic motion rendering, particularly useful for the broadcast of sporting events and other fast-paced video. Further, images of up to 240 Hz*2 can be displayed with SDI, DVI-D, and HDMI simultaneous inputs*3*4. A refined optical engine enhances focus performance for a lifelike sense of resolution, contrast, and fluidity.
System Daylight View 3 Improves Color Perception
This proprietary technology optimizes image quality to improve color perception of images projected onto walls and other exotic surface materials (ideal for mapping applications) as well as in environments with bright ambient light. Combined with high 10,000 lm brightness, the PT-RQ13K delivers clear and comfortable viewing in the most challenging applications.
Detail Clarity Processor 5 Clarifies and Enhances Fine Details
Panasonic’s new generation circuit technology analyzes each individual image frame by frame to clarify areas containing fine details and textures. Powerful algorithms extract hidden information from the super high, high, medium, and low frequency video bands, sharpening outlines, correcting contours, and reducing ringing noise to improve the sense of resolution. The PT-RQ13K adds an exclusive Refine Enhancer algorithm designed to clean and enhance the finest details in 4K images.
Dynamic Contrast Function for High 20,000:1*5 Contrast
The PT-RQ13K projector directly modulates laser power output to enable high contrast while reducing power consumption. Digitally controlled frame-byframe scene-linking modulation ensures highly precise light output adjustment, and accurate 20,000:1*5 contrast is achieved even when bright and dark scenes suddenly or frequently interchange. There is also almost no drop in contrast after extended use.
User Operating Mode
In addition to preset operating modes, the PT-RQ13K can be customized to achieve your preferred balance of brightness or extended life. Brightness can be set from 1,900 to 10,000 lm or the lifetime set to a
maximum of 10 years.
Selectable Operational Modes Maintain Image Quality Longer
• Approx. 20,000 Hours*7 of Continuous Operation (Normal Mode) In Normal Mode with a maximum 10,000 lm brightness, PT-RQ13K can operate continuously for approximately 20,000 hours*7. In Eco Mode at 8,000 lm, this is extended to approximately 24,000 hours*7 of continuous operation. These modes are ideal for education or signage applications.
• Up to 10 Years*8 Operation with Constant Brightness Modes
In environments where very high brightness is not necessary, such as surveillance, control, and simulation rooms, constant operation modes extend light source replacement to up to 87,600 hours*8 in Long Life 3 Mode— about 10 years of 24/7 projection—with consistent brightness and color.
Waveform Monitor Function
When source device output level fluctuates due to the performance of the device or its cable connections, the original black and white levels of the image cannot be reproduced correctly. The PT-RQ13K displays the waveforms on screen where they can be adjusted either automatically or manually as preferred.
DICOM Simulation Mode*6
This imaging mode is similar to the DICOM Part 14 medical imaging standard. It lends a film-like resolution to X-ray images, making the PT-RQ13K ideal for medical presentations and training.
High Reliability, Low TCO, and Easy Maintenance
Efficient Cooling System Assures Reliable Operation The PT-RQ13K employs a newly developed direct liquid cooling system for the laser light source that features a redesigned air intake and a solid aluminum heat sink to suppress temperature rises. This allows stable operation in ambient temperatures of up to 45 °C (113°F)*9 while reducing operating noise to just 46 dB.
Dustproof for Ultimate Endurance
The PT-RQ13K has hermetically sealed laser modules, a long-life Eco Filter, and a new air-intake system to extend life and maintain picture quality in dusty locations. SOLID SHINE Laser products exceed rigorous dustproofing requirements for operation in environments containing 0.150 mg of dust per cubic meter*10.
Optional Smoke Cut Filter
The optional Smoke Cut Filter captures fine dust particles contained in smoke used for special effects
Eco Filter Extends Replacement Cycle to 20,000 Hours*11 The Eco Filter includes an electrostatic Micro Cut Filter that collects minute dust particles with an ion effect. It joins with a dust-resistant cabinet to enable long-term use even in punishing conditions. A long maintenance cycle of up to 20,000 hours*11 reduces hassle, while the eco-friendly washable filter*12 can be reused to reduce cost and waste
Flexibility and Functionality for Professional Users
Flexible Setup and Smooth Operation Unlike conventional lamp-based projectors, the PT-RQ13K’s SOLID SHINE Laser system allows free 360-degree installation through any axis. Together with extra-wide-range powered lens shift and a big range of optional lenses shared by Panasonic’s 3-Chip DLP™ projector family, the PT-RQ13K can be mounted in any way desired without picture distortion.
Single-Cable 4K DIGITAL LINK Connection
Based on HDBaseT™ technology, DIGITAL LINK supports transmission of 4K video signals and control commands through a single cable for distances of up to 50 m (164 ft)*13. An optional ET-YFB200G DIGITAL LINK Switcher or ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box further simplifies installation in large venues while reducing cost and improving reliability.
Geometric Adjustment for Specially Shaped Screens
This function adjusts the image for projection onto spherical, cylindrical, and other specially shaped surfaces. Adjustments can be easily made using only the remote control, with no external equipment needed. New 4-Corner Adjustment and Keep Aspect Off functions also simplify fine adjustment.
Quick Start and Quick Off
The laser light source does not require any warm-up time, so images appear almost instantly with PT-RQ13K projectors. There’s also no cooling time required when turning the power off. Users can turn the projector on and off immediately as many times as necessary
Multi-Screen Support System Seamlessly Connects Multiple Screens
• Edge Blending: The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.
• Color Matching: This function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors. PC software assures easy, accurate control.
• Digital Image Enlarging: PT-RQ13K features a digital zoom function that allows images to be enlarged up to approximately 10 times (horizontally and vertically)*14. Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time to create large multi-screen images.
