Panasonic launches 4K projector

New PT-FRQ50 4K 1-Chip DLP projector is an affordable, high-quality solution for museums, corporate meeting rooms, classrooms and esports

From corporate presentations to classrooms and museum exhibitions, Panasonic say the PT-FRQ50 delivers smooth and richly detailed 4K (3840 x 2160) images. It also supports 240Hz/1080p frame rates with minimal input-to-output latency of under 8ms – widening its scope to fluid motion requirements, such as simulation and esports.

The PT-FRQ50 will be available to customers via the Panasonic authorised network of reseller partners from January 2022. Pricing starts from $9,699 RRP.

Key capabilities

 Said to meet the rising demand for ultra-fine detail resolution, Panasonic added Quad Pixel Drive to its proven 1-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser projection technology to create the 5,200 lumen PT-FRQ50 projector.

Quad Pixel Drive, Panasonic’s original pixel-quadrupling technology, produces extraordinarily detailed 4K images that retain natural sharpness and clarity. High-speed 240Hz processing and a narrow DMD aperture ratio creates an impressive sense of realism with the finest details and textures resolved in smooth, grid-less images. Rich Colour Enhancer produces accurate colours for faithful content reproduction.

Ensuring a long and trouble-free lifetime, the highly reliable and low-maintenance projector offers up to 20,000-hour maintenance-free operation, while Multi Monitoring & Control Software streamline maintenance and optional Early Warning functions can prevent unexpected downtime.

This versatile projector can address a wide range of projection applications and 4K installation environments. The PT-FRQ50 includes two HDMI inputs that support CEC commands from compatible devices; an easy-to-integrate DIGITAL LINK connection for 4K video and control-signal transmission over long distances; and separate LAN terminal for control.

The 2.0x zoom lens brings large image sizes to confined spaces with flexible throw-distances. Combined with a wide V/H Lens Shift (V: +71 per cent, -49 per cent, H: +34 per cent, -27per cent), it provides more freedom to adjust projector location and image position. Geometric adjustment is easily performed using Free Grid via remote control without the need for a PC, while preactivated upgrade kits for Geometry Manager Pro[1] enable automatic calibration of multiple screens simultaneously via camera, and an expanded range of software-based geometric adjustment and sophisticated masking capabilities. Remote Preview Lite allows input-video checks on a PC without image projection.
