The PT-DS12K is also 3D ready and for medical school and hospital applications. The projector is equipped with the DICOM Simulation mode, enabling end-users to view X-ray images. The PT-DS12K helps realize unique and captivating video performance with numerous built-in features. The Lens Memory adjusts the image size and location in up to three different projection positions. Users can program the mechanical shutter to fade the image in and out during show transitions, and it also has built in Edge Blending, as well as Multi-Unit Brightness Control for projection onto wide screens and surfaces to create an immersive experience. Furthermore, the PT-DS12K can project onto various curved-screens with the Geometric Adjustment feature, which can be enhanced with the optional upgrade kit, ET-UK20, to support even more diverse curvatures and shapes with bitmap masking.
This device has been designed with an extremely small footprint due to a highly efficient optical design as well as an improved liquid cooling system that makes it possible to keep the noise level to a minimum during operation. Due to its compact size, the PT-DS12K total cost of ownership is further enhanced by saving warehouse space and minimizing the cost of shipping from one location to another. The PT-DS12K is built to maximize savings with a maintenance-free Eco Filter with a lifespan of up to 4,000 hours and low consumption of 1,050W.
Basic installation flexibility is provided by a comprehensive optional lens selection that supports a wide range of throw distances. 360-degree installation capability enables projection onto floors and ceilings. The projector also boasts high durability with an operating temperature between 32°~113° Fahrenheit. Flexibility and reliability are further enhanced by the projectors’ capability to handle more than 100 input signals. Several available input terminals include SDIx2, HDMI, DVI-D, LAN (RJ45) and 3D timing signal IN/OUT.
In addition, end-users can remotely monitor and operate the PT-DS12K by using Panasonic’s own Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software and the web browser feature enables users to view and send email alerts from the projector.
In addition to the high brightness and compact size, the PT-DS12K with SXGA+ (1400x1050) resolution and 12,000 lumens of brightness boasts long lamp replacement cycles of up to 2,000 hours, 3D compatibility and installation flexibility, making this projector ideal for large-venue applications such as auditoriums, museums and rental and staging that requires both maximum brightness and easy handling. The Lens Memory adjusts the image size and location in up to three different projection positions and the combination of four new 380W UHM lamps and the Dynamic Iris allow the PT-DS12K to deliver a 10,000:1 contrast ratio to ensure super high brightness and best possible picture quality.
