*1 PT-RZ970/RW930 features brightness of 10,000 lm (Center), and PT-RX110 features 10,400 lm (Center), *2 With Dynamic Contrast Mode set to 3, *3 At 20,000 hours, projector brightness will have decreased to approximately half of its original level (Dynamic Contrast Mode: 3, Image mode: Dynamic). Panasonic recommends cleaning or checkup at point of purchase after every 20,000-hour period (approximately). Light source lifetime may be reduced depending on environmental conditions. Replacement of parts other than the light source may be required in a shorter period, *4 With operating Mode set to Long Life 3, in which mode brightness is lowered to 1,900 lm. 24 hours/day x 365 days/year x 10 years = 87,600 hours. Replacement of parts other than the light source may be required in a shorter period, *5 Light output may be reduced to protect the projector depending on environmental conditions, *6 150 m (492 ft) transmission available only with ET-YFB200G DIGITAL LINK Switcher for signals up to 1080/60p (dot-clock frequency 148.5 MHz). Transmission distance is up to 100 m (328 ft) in other cases, *7 Geometry Manager Pro and optional upgrade kit are available only with PT-RZ970, *8 For only PT-RZ970. Available worldwide except the United States.
