The world’s smallest 50klm native 4K projector
The PT-RQ50K is an all-in-one projector built to create breath-taking experiences with ease and reassurance. It combines Panasonic’s finest image quality and long-proven reliability.
|Brightness||51 000 center lumen / 50 000 lumen|
Laser 3-Chip DLP, 50 000 lumens, native 4K resolution
The PT-RQ50K is the world’s lightes and most compact 50 000 lumens 3-Chip DLPTM laser projector with ultra-sharp native 4K resolution (4096 x 2160). It offers new potential for creating transcendent experiences across live events and themed entertainment. A single RQ50K offers the same potential as multiple lower brightness projectors, saving on installation and set-up time.
Superb colour reproduction with red and blue lasers
Thanks to the deployment of separate red and blue SOLID SHINE laser/phosphor light sources, the RQ50K delivers an advanced level of colour reproduction, providing vibrant and immersive images that will engage and delight audiences.
High reliability with dual power and back up input
The projector is simple to install and use thanks to pre-installed geometry manager software and a new easy-read information LCD monitor. In addition to dual laser drives and backup video inputs, the RQ50K also features a redundant power supply to ensure total reliability.
Up to 20 000 hours’ maintenance-free operation
Thanks to further improvements to Panasonic’s unique SOLID SHINE Laser cooling system, a hermetically sealed, dust-resistant optical block and long lasting engine with filter-less design. The RQ50K series can achieve 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation, even in extreme environments.
Geometry Manager Pro, colour matching and edge blending
The RQ50K projector comes with Panasonic’s Geometry Manager Pro software pre-installed, which massively cuts set up time for projectors and significantly reduces installation work. Includes upgrade kits to enable geometric adjustment for 3D mapping (ET-UK20) and for auto-screen adjustment (ET-CUK10), enabling you to set up multiple projectors simultaneously, to save time and expense.

|Note||*1 Measurement, measuring conditions, and method of notation all comply with ISO/IEC 21118: 2012 international standards. Value is average of all products when shipped. *2 Average light-output value of all shipped products measured at center of screen in NORMAL Mode. *3 Around this time, light output will have decreased by approximately 50 %. IEC62087: 2008 Broadcast contents, NORMAL Mode, Dynamic Contrast , under conditions with 35 °C (95 °F), 700 m (2,297 ft) above sea level, and 0.15 mg/m3 of particulate matter. Estimated time until light output declines to 50 % varies depending on environment. *4 Average value. May differ depending on the actual unit. *5 The operating environment temperature should be between 0 °C (32 °F) and 40 °C (104 °F) if the projector is used at an altitude between 1,400 m (4,593 ft) and 4,200 m (13,780 ft). *6 When optional AJ-WM50 wireless module is attached, operating temperature range becomes 0–40 °C (32–104 °F). *7 When using the projector at an altitude lower than 2,700 m (8,858 ft) above sea level, and the operating environment temperature becomes 30 °C (86 °F) or higher, the light output may be reduced to protect the projector. When using the projector at an altitude between 2,700 m (8,858 ft) and 4,200 m (13,780 ft), and the operating environment temperature becomes 25 °C (77 °F) or higher, the light output may be reduced to protect the projector.|
