High Brightness in Compact Chassis

Panasonic's original dual-lamp system; with its new 380 W lamp; helps to make the body compact; while providing a full 12;000 lm of brightness with 120 V AC operation.
The replacement lamp unit (ET-LAD310A/ETLAD310AW) can be used with all of the PT-DZ8700/PT-DZ110X Seriesprojectors. This reduces the number of lamp types that need to be kept in stock when multiple projectors are used.

Iris for a High Contrast Ratio of 10;000:1Panasonic's Dynamic Iris uses a scene-linking aperture mechanism to achieve a remarkable 10;000:1contrast without lowering its high brightness. This helps to reproduce deeper; richer blacks; and provides images with more detailed textures.

Full on/off; with dynamic iris set to 3"

Detail Clarity Processor 3

This unique Panasonic circuit optimizes the sharpness of each image; based on the super-high-; high-; medium-; and low-frequency components of the extracted image information. The resulting images have more natural; lifelike expression.

System Daylight View 2

This unique Panasonic technology optimizes image quality to improve the color perception of the projected image in bright rooms. With a brightness of 12;000 lm; it provides highly comfortable viewing even in bright lighting; and allows viewers to concentrate easily on the images.



Dual Lamp System

This system eliminates the interruption if a lamp should fail (in dual-lamp operation mode). The Lamp Relay Mode also operates the lamps alternately to enable 24/7 projection.alt="" border="0" src="http://demandware.edgesuite.net/aavr_prd/on/demandware.static/-/Library-Sites-panasonicB2BSharedLibrary/default/dw7d0e6f96/images/products/avtechnology-projectors/PT-DS12KU-image001.png">

 If the projector is to be operated continuously 24 hours a day / 7 days a week; use the dual-lamp optical system's alternating lamp operation (lamp changer) function. The projector cannot be operated continuously 24 hours a day / 7 days a week in dual-lamp mode. Allow a minimum of two hours per week of non-operation time per lamp if using the dual-lamp mode.

Maintenance-free Eco Filter for up to 12;000 Hours

The Eco Filter has an electrostatic Micro Cut Filter that collects minute dust particles with an ion effect. It combines with the dust-resistant cabinet to enable long-term use even under harsh conditions. Its maintenance cycle of up to 12;000 hoursreduces hassle; and the environmental design lets you wash the filter with water and reuse it.The usage environment affects the filter maintenance cycle.
When washing with water; please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions. Also; we recommend replacing the filter with a new one after it has been washed and reused twice. If the filter is not sufficiently clean after washing; replace it with a new one.



The PT-DS12KU lowers the total cost of ownership because it has a lamp replacement cycle of up to 2;500 hours.Their environmentally friendly design also includes a low power consumption of 1;000 W.

 When the projector is in landscape orientation and LAMP POWER set to HIGH mode. The usage environment affects the lamp replacement cycle.

Easy Lamp Replacement

For easier maintenance; you can replace the lamp from the rear. This makes it easy to replace a lamp unit while the projector is still in the mounting bracket or dual stacked.



Flexible Installation

The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift function can be easily adjusted with the remote control. The unit can also be rotated 360° vertically; to accommodate various installation conditions. The lens-centered design contributes to easy Installation.

Lens Memorysettings of projection size; lens shift position; and focus/zoom can be stored in memory and recalled for instant switching.

 The settings stored in memory and the projection condition after recall may not match perfectly.

Wide Selection of Lenses

Choose from a wide lineup of lenses for your system; including short-throw; long-throw zoom and fixed-throw lenses for rear projection use. The additional lenses make it easy to adapt your projector to the installation site. The lenses attach and detach with one-touch ease.


New Geometric Adjustment

This function adjusts the image for projection onto spherical; cylindrical and other specially shaped screens. You can make the adjustment easily using only the remote control; with no external equipment needed. The New Geometric Adjustment has 4-Corner Adjustment and Keep Aspect Off functions for simple and fine adjustment.


Multi-Unit Brightness Control

This function automatically corrects the brightness fluctuations that occur over time in the individual projectors of a multi-screen system. Up to eight projectors can be controlled by connecting to each other via a hub; and this can be increased to a maximum of 2;048 projectors by using "Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software Ver. 2.8."


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. The PC software assures easy; accurate control.

Digital Image Enlarging

The PT-DS12KU features a digital zoom function that allows images to be enlarged up to 10 times (horizontally and vertically).Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time to create large; multi-screen images.

 While the input resolution will not change; maintaining image quality will not be possible for those images that are enlarged horizontally and vertically via the digital zoom function.

Portrait Mounting Capabilitymode adds more solutions for projection mapping; staging; and other needs. Portrait projection is possible by mounting the optional ET-LAD320P or ET-LAD320PW lamp units; updating the projector's firmware to MAIN Ver. 2.00 or later and installing the projector with its terminal side surface facing downward.
