New Lampless Projectors from Panasonic!

We had an opportunity to see one of the new Panasonic products – the recently-released PT-DZ470 projector. Jan Crittenden Livingston brought it to Rule before this Wednesday’s 5/8/13 Learning Lab, which was a recap of Panasonic’s featured products at this year’s NAB conference. The projector is very bright (3500 lumen) and shows material very quickly (no warm up time). It is not at all hot, has a very handy manual lens shift (joystick like), and it can be mounted horizontally or vertically.  One of it’s main features is the fact that it does not use a lamp.  As a result, it has a very long and trouble-free user time which is estimated to be 20,000 hours. It looks like there is no maintenance, and, with its very good, quality picture, it seems to be a really exceptional product — especially if its promised longevity is true!

Sony F5 & F55 Learning Lab & Pub Night

The very well-received introduction to the new Sony cameras took place at Rule with a double header Learning Lab (a.m.) and Pub Night (p.m.). We had a good-sized crowd who applauded the new cameras modular build, ergonomics of design and “plug & play” functionality (camera recognizes any connected component and takes control over it). The cameras should be available in 2-3 weeks from now. Zbigniew Twarog, Chief Engineer, twarog@rule.com
