Panasonic PT-MZ680 LCD Projector

The Panasonic PT-MZ680 LCD Projector is tuned for Optimal Brightness and Colour. Refined optical engine delivers an ideal balance of high brightness and vivid colour for clear visibility in well-lit rooms. With a selection of display modes optimized to suit different kinds of content and screen surfaces and dynamic optimization technologies that continuously adjust the image to suit environment and content, your audience will enjoy comfortably visible pictures without turning the room lights off.

Dynamic Contrast
To best suit the projected content or operating environment, Dynamic Contrast analyzes the input signal frame-by-frame and directly adjusts light-source output according to the contrast requirements of each scene. As well as increasing overall contrast precision, Dynamic Contrast more accurately reproduces scenes where light and dark images frequently interchange.


Detail Clarity Processor 4
Proprietary circuitry analyzes individual video frames to clarify areas of each image containing fine details. Algorithms extract data from four frequency bands of the signal, sharpening outlines, correcting contours, and reducing ringing noise for increased text definition and clearer detail resolution in video and graphics.


Flexible Design Fits Any Space

Unobtrusive Cabinet Blends into the Room
Elegant new cabinet styling helps these projectors blend into the room environment. Use of black for the recessed base makes the side and front panels appear slimmer. By combining unobtrusive styling with quiet operation and clear image visibility, the projection (not the projector) becomes the focus of attention. All-black versions are available for easy concealment in dark environments, such as museums.


Quiet Operation Increases Immersion
With lessons, meetings, and conferences increasingly being held online, it’s important that projector noise doesn’t drown out discussion or distract attention from displayed content. Silent projection also helps people focus. Panasonic PT-MZ680 LCD Projector includes a Quiet Mode enabling 26 dB* (PT-MZ780/MZ680) or 28 dB (PT-MZ880) operation. Expect productive participation from an alert audience, whether they’re in the room or participating online, and a more immersive experience when the projectors are installed in museums.


Supports 4K Signal Input to Fit Your System Infrastructure
Panasonic PT-MZ680 LCD Projector is compatible with 4K input signals, accepting 4K/60p video via HDMI inputs or DIGITAL LINK terminal. This capability is useful when integrating the projectors into existing 4K-ready system infrastructure or when it’s necessary to distribute the same 4K signal to a network of endpoints with different display resolutions without having to use an external converter or to reencode the source.


Three HDMI Inputs Support CEC Commands
HDMI inputs are compatible with control signals sent via a CEC-command-compatible component, giving you limited control over the projector using the compatible source device’s remote control. The projectors power up from Standby and commence playback automatically on command from a compatible player, such as optional Wireless Presentation System PressIT, when connected to the projector via HDMI.


Separate LAN and DIGITAL LINK terminals
You can choose to control MZ880 Series projectors via a dedicated LAN terminal or the HDBase-T™-based DIGITAL LINK connection. Both support 100Base-TX- and 10BaseT-compatible control signals via Panasonic, Crestron Connected™, AMX, and Extron® applications. With control enabled via LAN, DIGITAL LINK is free to transmit video over long cable runs of up to 150 m (492 ft).


Optional Powered Lenses Including New Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens
Panasonic PT-MZ680 LCD Projector Series ships with a 1.61–2.76:1 powered zoom lens and supports a selection of optional fixed and zoom lenses to suit your preferred projector location. These optional lenses include a new zero-offset ET-ELU20 Ultra-Short-Throw Zoom Lens, making this projector series not only a great fit for education and corporate use, but also for museum exhibition. When paired with a compatible powered lens, projectionists can perform zoom, focus, and V/H lens-shift adjustments using the projector remote control or Smart Projector Control app.


Works with Smart Projector Control App
Smart Projector Control is a remote-control app for iOS and Android™ devices that can be used to adjust, control, and monitor up to 64 projectors individually or simultaneously from anywhere within range of the wireless network. You can use the app to switch the unit on or off, select an input signal, and adjust the projector’s OSD menu settings via your device’s touchscreen while the projector is in standby or powered up with the shutter on.


Built-in Geometric Adjustment Functions and Edge Blending
Geometric Adjustment is a suite of functions built into the Panasonic PT-MZ680 LCD Projector operated via the projector remote control that allow installers to correct distortion when images are projected at an angle, onto curved screens, or over irregular screen surfaces. Correction extends to spherical, cylindrical, and other complex screen shapes without need of a connected PC. Edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their brightness controlled.


Geometry Manager Pro Software with Free Grid
Geo Pro for Windows® PC expands the functionality of built-in Geometric Adjustment and makes complex correction easy with Free Grid. Free Grid can be overlaid on the projected image, allowing users to reshape distorted areas by adjusting the position of node or V/H line control-points. Grids of between 2 x 2 and 11 x 11 lines are selectable according to required granularity, and work progress is saved automatically so you can move freely between grid resolutions. Grid and control-point colours are selectable to ensure clear visibility over the projected image.


Contrast Sync and Shutter Sync
Contrast Sync synchronizes Dynamic Contrast value among multiple projectors connected via serial in/out terminals. This function increases the uniformity of individual images in a multi-screen system and reduces the visibility of overlapping areas of adjacent images for a seamless widescreen image. Shutter Sync, meanwhile, synchronizes shutter on/off timing for professional fade-in/fade-out effects.


Efficient Eco-Friendly Reliability 

Reduced Power Consumption
Power consumption is about 20 % less than previous models. These savings scale with every projector added to your fleet and make significant contribution to your organization’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.


Low Maintenance 20,000-hour Operation
Projector maintenance in the Panasonic PT-MZ680 LCD Projector is recommended at about 20,000 hours to reduce time, cost, and effort to your organization. Long-life laser light-source eliminates hassles associated with lamp disposal (which sometimes contain specified toxic substances) and reduces your consumable parts inventory.


Reduced Waste with Lamp-free Design and Eco Filter
Eco Filter includes a Micro Cut Filter that collects minute dust particles with an electrostatic effect. Together with dust-resistant projector cabinet, Eco Filter enables long-term use in dusty conditions with less downtime. Replacement is at about 20,000 hours, and the filter can be washed and reused. And thanks to the projector’s long-life laser light-source, there’s no hassles associated with lamp disposal.


ECO Management System
Energy efficiency is achieved by automatically reducing light-source output power in dim rooms, and by transitioning to a low-power mode when no input signal is detected. These functions are readily accessed via a key on the projector remote control.


Less Packaging for Easy Disposal
Recyclable packing for the projector, accessories, and consumable parts—which can add up in the context of a fleet—is reduced in line with your organization’s CSR policy objectives.


Multi-Laser Drive Engine with Failover Circuitry
The Multi-Laser Drive Engine in the Panasonic PT-MZ680 LCD Projector equips multiple laser modules and heat-resistant inorganic phosphor-wheel to enhance projection stability and efficiency. The modules are equipped with proprietary Failover Circuitry. If a single laser diode fails, only diodes in the affected series are bypassed rather than all diodes in the module, as is the case with other projectors. Projection can continue with imperceptible loss in brightness. Failover Circuitry provides an invaluable layer of insurance in situations where image display must be maintained.
