11 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Data projectors produced by Panasonic generally have excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Just Released Six Months Ago

As one of the newer multimedia projectors, this data projector is likely to use better technology.

Supports Full HD

The Panasonic PT-RZ970 supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PT-RZ970 which do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Panasonic PT-RZ770[plb_3899138_price].

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-RZ970 is 450 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 10,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 9,400 ANSI lumens, the Panasonic PT-RZ970 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other latest comparable spec data projectors.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The PT-RZ970 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-RZ970.

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of multimedia projector.

Very Big Uniformity

New comparable spec projectors have uniformitys of between 70% and 90%, and the average uniformity is 83%. When compared to other newly released 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that we have assessed the uniformity of, the Panasonic PT-RZ970's uniformity of 90 percent is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The service life of lamp (economic mode)s of comparable spec projectors that were released in the last year range from 3,000h to 24,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 9,800h. The Panasonic PT-RZ970 has one of the longest service life of lamp (economic mode)s (24,000 hours) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Six BNC Input Portss

The PT-RZ970 is a six BNC input ports projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the PT-RZ970 only have between one and five BNC input portss.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the PT-RZ970 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the Panasonic PT-RZ970 which has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp

10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-RZ970 have service life of lamps of between 2,500h and 30,000h. With a service life of lamp of 20,000 hours, the PT-RZ970 has one of the longer service life of lamps amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit
