The white Panasonic PT-DZ870ULW WUXGA 1-Chip DLP Projector is ideally suited for fixed installations and public display venues including independent cinema, live events, educational institutions, entertainment and advertising, or as the hub of cutting-edge home theater applications.

8500 ANSI lumens is enough power to overwhelm most ambient light challenges, while the 10,000:1 contrast achieved by the Dynamic Iris delivers WUXGA (1920 x 1200) imagery that leaps off the screen. And don't worry if your source material was compressed. Detail Clarity Processor 3 restores any subtle details that may have been lost during the compression process.

The projector ensures minimal image degradation and a quick response that eliminates afterimages. While compact, the sturdily-built, 53 pound unit has what takes to last. It's for mission-critical environments such as 24-hour a day command and control centers thanks to the dual 420W lamp system, which employs a Lamp Relay mode to cycle each lamp on and off during 24/7 scenarios.

Other features include a built-in clock to schedule projector functions, PIP, and DICOM simulation mode. Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine, or DICOM, allows educators to display subtle nuances and grayscale subtleties in X-rays, radiography or MRIs.

The PT-DZ870ULW ships without a lens. You have a wide range of lenses to choose from.

Full-HD Ready WUXGA Resolution

The projector features native WUXGA resolution for Full-HD viewing. This brings you lifelike projection of intricate, highly detailed images

Active 3D Projection Capability

The projector is compatible with both passive and active 3D projection systems. It combines with either a separate, external 100/120/144 Hz drive with IR emitter and active shutter glasses, or an active filter and passive glasses, for viewing 3D images

Dual Lamp System

Panasonic's Dual Lamp System eliminates interruptions due to lamp failure (in Dual Lamp operation mode). The Lamp Relay Mode also operates the lamps alternately to enable 24/7 projection. Operation is possible in temperatures up to 113°F/45°C. A dust-resistant optical block is also employed

10,000:1 Contrast Ratio

The Dynamic Iris achieves a high contrast ratio of 10,000:1

Detail Clarity Processor 3

Exclusive to Panasonic, this image-processing circuit analyzes the video signal frequency range for each scene by extracting data on the distribution of high, mid, and low-frequency components, and brings out fine details accordingly. The resulting images have a more natural, three dimensional appearance with crisp, clear detail

Vivid Color Control

This technology optimizes the use of the color wheel segments. It increases the brightness of each RGB color by minimizing the unallocated portions between the colors

Dynamic RGB Booster

Panasonic's RGB Booster achieves high image quality with levels of color reproduction and brightness that make each color stand out. It combines Panasonic's proprietary Vivid Color Control technology with a Lamp Modulation Drive System for a 1-chip DLP projector that produces bright colors

Rec. 709 Mode for HDTV Projection

Optimal color reproduction can be achieved by selecting this mode, compliant with ITU-R Recommendation BT.709, when images from an HDTV source are projected

Waveform Monitor Function

When the output level of the source device fluctuates due to the performance of the device or its cable connections, the original black and white levels of the image content cannot be reproduced correctly. With the projector you can view the waveforms on the screen and adjust the settings either automatically or manually as you prefer

System Daylight View 2

System Daylight View 2 enhances perceived brightness and contrast. It includes a built-in ambient light sensor that automatically detects room brightness and adjusts operation accordingly

A Wide Selection of Lenses Available

Choose from a wide lineup of lenses for your system, including short-throw, long-throw zoom and fixed-throw lenses for rear projection use (not included)

DICOM Simulation Mode

Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) simulation mode allows medical educators to display high-resolution images with detail and clarity. This helps train technologists and others to recognize and understand the subtle grayscale differences visible on digital radiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance

Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software

Panasonic's freeware Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software allows the user to control and monitor multiple projectors at the same time over a wired LAN. When a problem occurs, an alarm message is sent to the monitoring/controlling PC

Direct Power Off

The cooling fan continues to operate even when the main power switch is turned off after projection is finished. This also allows the power to be turned off by directly switching off the room's main breaker for systems, such as ceiling mounted systems, where the main power switch cannot be reached

Multi-Screen Support System Seamlessly Connects Multiple Screens

Edge Blending: The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled
Color Matching: This function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors. The PC software assures easy, accurate control
Multi-Screen Processor: The projector can project large, multi-screen images without any additional equipment. Up to 100 (10 x 10) units can be edge-blended at a time

Scheduling Function

A scheduling function enables timed operation via a built-in clock to program the projectors to turn on or off at specific hours during the day

PJLink Compatibility

The LAN terminals support PJLink class 1 connection. Control with the same specifications is also possible when used in a multi-projector system with projectors of another brand


Picture in Picture lets you flexibly control the layout of two windows for a wide variety of presentations


Environment-friendly, low standby power consumption of 0.3W when set to Eco

Web Browser Control

The projector can be easily operated remotely over a LAN network, because it is all done using the computer's familiar Web browser. Furthermore, the projector sends an e-mail message to notify the operator when an error has occurred, or a lamp needs to be replaced


Equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, the projector allows transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video, audio, and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 328' through a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations
