PRG XL Video Invests in New Panasonic Laser Projectors

Panasonic PT-RZ31K Rental Laser Projector

PRG XL Video, the UK operation of Production Resource Group (PRG), has announced a major investment in ultra-high brightness Panasonic laser projectors. The new projectors continue the company’s policy of investing in innovative new technology.

The PT-RZ31K projectors offer a range of benefits over traditional projector technology. Traditional units average 1200 hours of use per lamp, whereas laser modules have a life of around 20,000 hours. The extended life, and subsequent reduction in maintenance make the units more efficient and cost effective to run.

The reduced heat output from the newer light source also means less cooling is required. Fan units in traditional projectors can be noisy, which is a major issue in theatres, galleries, and for corporate events, and so this efficiency makes the new laser models far quieter to operate than their counterparts.

Laser projectors also consume considerably less power than lamp-based units, and are more cost effective for venues and events to utilise. This reduction in power consumption also supports sustainability efforts, which are becoming more commonplace in the events industry.

Paul Weaver, PRG Head of Asset Management, EMEA comments: “Laser projectors are more efficient in terms of power and maintenance. These benefits were an important choice in selecting this technology, as they will make a difference for our rental clients.”

In addition to the efficiencies, the Panasonic PT-RZ31K units offer a contrast ratio of 20000:1, a marked improvement over previous UHM-lamp based models. This increase gives designers bolder, brighter graphics, and better colour reproduction, ensuring their shows will look fantastic and make the maximum impact for their clients.

A number of these 30,000 lumen projectors will be used for the brand new theatre production Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical, which opens in Manchester in early 2017. PRG XL Video’s Theatre Account Director Peter Marshall comments: “We’re looking forward to using Panasonic’s new laser projector on Bat Out Of Hell - The Musical. The bold, bright colours from this projector are perfect for this exciting new show, and will give audiences a real visual treat alongside the classic Meatloaf songs.”
