Panasonic PT-VMZ71 Laser Projector

The Panasonic PT-VMZ71 is one of the most powerful projectors to be released in a small compact light weight chassis. Weighing in at just 7.2kg the PT-VMZ71 produces a whopping 7000 lumens brightness perfect for a large screen projection or a well lit environment. The PT-VMZ71 offers a short throw lens so can also project a large image from a short distance. For a huge 3 meter wide image you can have it at just 3.3 meters away. But with a 1.6x optical zoom the same 3 meter wide image can be projected from 5.3 meters distance giving you the flexibility to find a rafter or convenient spot for the installation. The long life laser has a life up to 24,000 hours making it perfect for high usage environments.

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.

Clear Images That Are Easy to See in Bright Rooms

With up to 7,000 lm, 3,000,000:1 contrast , Daylight View Basic, and vivid 3-chip LCD color, images stay clear and bright in well-lit classrooms and meeting rooms. Visually complex images, such as detailed graphics and fine text, are crisp, sharp, and easy to see even to those viewing the screen at a distance.

Pristine Pictures Under Lights

With up to 7,000 lm from the world’s smallest and lightest LCD projector in class2 , PT-VMZ71 Series cuts through bright ambient light to provide vivid, contrast-rich images without closing the blinds. Refined optical engine, 3,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast, and Daylight View Basic further maintain image visibility in well-lit spaces.

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-VMZ71 generates up to 7,000 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-VMZ71 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-VMZ71. 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

Installation Flexibility Adapts Projection to Any Space

PT-VMZ71 is smallest and lightest LCD projector in its class1 Compact 7.0 kg3 (15.43 lbs) body, 1.6x zoom, and V/H Lens-Shift streamline installation while new 6-Point Screen Adjustment enables projection into room corners. CEC command compatible4 HDMI® and DIGITAL LINK5 support 4K input signals

Flexible and Versatile

Flexible 1.6x zoom and lens adjustment support projection from different angles, heights, and throw-distances, while a new 6-Point Screen Correction function enables projection into room corners without distortion. Digital Zoom Extender4 allows use of existing mounts with your new projector, even if throw-distance exceeds its optical zoom range, saving you time and effort.

Enjoy Smooth and Effortless Collaboration

Connect smartphone and projector over wireless LAN7 via the QR Code displayed on screen and share a wide variety of content without cable mess, or use optional Wireless Presentation System PressIT8 to share almost any device screen at the press of a button. You can also project content from USB flash drive.

Supports 4K signal input*3

The PT-VMZ71 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

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.
