Panasonic PT-VMZ61B Black Laser Projector

The PT-VMZ61B offers a now rare black chassis to a powerful corporate projector. Perfect for a dark ceiling or darker rooms where it will seamlessly blend in. The PT-VMZ61B is also incredibly small for the high power output. Measuring in at only 39x35x11 centimetres but with a whopping 6200 ANSI Lumens brightness it offers a compact unobtrusive design. With a fairly short throw distance the VMZ61B is also popular for golf simulation use allowing it to project a mega screen but avoid casting the shadow of the golfer. Backed by a 5 year warranty and with a long life laser as the light source it is capable of long workloads and even 360 degree installations.

Bright, Color-Rich Images with High Contrast

Vivid Images in Bright Environments

SOLID SHINE Laser phosphor drive with advanced LCD optical engine projects bright, vivid, and detailed images regardless of artificial light levels in the room. Text is finely resolved, while graphics and video retain high color saturation and contrast for immersive viewing.

High Brightness from a Compact Body

Deploy up to 6,200 lm of brightness from a projector weighing just 7.2 kg, currently the smallest and lightest LCD laser projector series in the world. High brilliance makes pictures pop even under the glare of interior lights, making projection more engaging than ever.

High 3,000,000:1 Contrast

High-precision digital laser light output modulation achieves 3,000,000:1 dynamic contrast while minimizing power consumption. High-contrast performance adds depth, dimensionality, and realism to video, defining details in shadows even when bright and dark scenes frequently interchange.

Bright, High-Visibility Images in Well-Lit Spaces

Because office and classroom projectors are used with the room lights on and window blinds open, they need high light output to produce a bright image. Thanks to a carefully refined optical engine, the PT-VMZ61 generates up to 6,200 lm of brightness, more than most professional projectors of a similar size. Dim, washed out projections are history: expect big, bright, vivid pictures in bright environments to stimulate viewer engagement with the lesson or meeting content.

New 6-Point Screen Adjustment for Projection into Room Corners

The PT-VMZ61 is the first Panasonic projector to feature 6-Point Screen Correction. It allows you to perform 4-Corner and Horizontal/Vertical Keystone Correction via remote control to remove trapezoidal distortion when projecting from an angle, such as a high ceiling. An extra two control points located at center top and bottom of the screen can be used to remove distortion when projecting an image into the corner of a room.

New Digital Zoom Extender Function

In some cases, the throw-distance required to produce an image at the desired size might exceed the projector’s optical zoom range. Panasonic answers the problem with a new Digital Zoom Extender function equipped for the first time on the PT-VMZ61. It provides a convenient way to fit the image to your screen beyond optical zoom range, reducing the need to relocate your projector mounts and potentially saving you time, money, and hassle on your next refreshment cycle.

Easy Installation, Simple Setup

1.6x Zoom Lens and Lens Shift Function

The 1.6x zoom lens with flexible 1.09 –1.77:1 throw-ratio enables large-format projection from close up or far away from the screen: ideal for permanent installation in large or small rooms. Wide-range Vertical/Horizontal Lens-Shift aligns the image to fit the projection surface in moments. This is handy when the projection position is too high, too low, or off-center.

Supports 4K signal input*3

The PT-VMZ61 Series supports 4K/30p signal input*3 via HDMI®or DIGITAL LINK*2 terminals, enabling seamless integration into existing or planned 4K-ready system infrastructure.

4k signal VMZ61B

Single-Cable DIGITAL LINK*2 Solution

A dedicated DIGITAL LINK*2 terminal transmits AV and control signals via LAN cable for up to 150 m (492 ft)*8 and 4K video for up to 50 m (164 ft)*9. Optional DIGITAL LINK Switcher*10 and Digital Interface Box*10 reduce complexity, acting as a hub for connected sources and routing signals to the projector via one cable. A separate LAN terminal offers dedicated control interface if preferred.

Horizontal, Vertical, and Corner Keystone Correction

Manual keystone adjustment fits the image to the screen when projecting from an unusual angle. Curved Screen Correction removes barrel or pincushion distortion for natural projection onto curved surfaces.


The People-Friendly Projector

Get a smooth start to classes and meetings: two CEC command compatible5 HDMI® inputs enable projector ON/OFF with the source device, and images appear quickly thanks to Quick On/Quick Off laser design. The projectors support 4K input signals6 via HDMI and DIGITAL LINK7 to simplify system construction and projector integration.

Power Consumption Reduced 20%

Select PT-VMZ61 use about 20% less energy than models in the previous series. Efficiency is further increased, and brightness optimized to ambient light levels, by pressing the ECO9 button on the remote. A change to Panasonic projection will reduce waste, save money, and contribute to your CSR environmental policy objectives.
