Panasonic Connect Europe has announced its most sustainable projector to date with the introduction of the LCD MZ882 Series at ISE 2024.
With brightness up to 8,200lm, the MZ882 Series sets a new benchmark for visual quality in education and workspaces while placing a strong emphasis on sustainability and cost performance.
The MZ882 Series represents a milestone in the company’s effort to reduce the carbon footprint of its products, for the first time including recycled resins (10%) in the main projector unit and featuring recyclable components throughout. The projector, which minimises waste through a reduction in packaging and related accessories, introduces energy-saving innovations while delivering bright, sharp images.
Hartmut Kulessa, European Marketing Manager for Visual System Solutions at Panasonic Connect Europe said, “this is another important step in our journey to making all Panasonic’s products as sustainable as possible. By transitioning to this flexible projector, organisations can reduce energy consumption, waste, and carbon footprint in line with their Sustainable Development Goals.”
The Series’ refined optical engine boosts brightness over the existing MZ880 Series with an up to 8.7 per cent increase in lm/W efficiency. The MZ882 Series also introduces an intelligent auto power-on function, starting projection upon signal detection and minimising continuous projector operation during presentations. To limit waste, the ECO Filter can be washed and reused twice, while light source and filter maintenance is recommended at 20,000 hours.
Quiet 27dB operation reduces distractions and keeps participants focused on the presentation. Widescreen 21:9 aspect ratios are supported to suit immersive conferencing layouts or to display documents side-by-side. The MZ882 Series will be available from CY2024 Q2.
