The Panasonic PT-FRZ60 is an installation class DLP laser projector with WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) resolution and rated brightness of 6,000 lumens. The PT-FRZ60 uses a laser/phosphor wheel light engine, rated to deliver 20,000 hours of low maintenance operation.
The PT-FRZ60 offers a 2.0x zoom lens (throw ratio 1.46 to 2.94:1) and a large amount of vertical and horizontal lens shift for convenient installation flexibility. Of course, the PT-FRZ60 has all the connections you would expect on a better business/education class projector including HDMI 2.0 and DIGITAL LINK (HDBaseT) port.
The PT-FRZ60 is available in a black chassis (PT-FRZ60BU) and a white chassis (PT-FRZ60WU).
The Panasonic PT-FRZ60 is a 6,000-lumen WUXGA installation projector with a laser/phosphor light engine that is rated for 20,000 hours of low maintenance operation. The PT-FRZ60 features a single DLP (0.67” DMD) chip and Panasonic claims the unit can deliver a dynamic contrast ratio of 20,000;1.
For enhanced installation flexibility, the PT-FRZ60 is equipped with 2.0x zoom and ample horizontal and vertical lens shift. The PT-FRZ60 is part of Panasonic’s FRZ Series of WUXGA installation laser projectors which also includes the 5200-lumen PT-FRZ50 and the 5000-lumen short throw PT- FRZ55. All three models are housed in a similar chassis (approx. 19-5/8” W × 6-5/8” H 19-3/8” D) and weigh between 35 to 36 pounds each. The two main differentiators between the three models are brightness and lens type.
The PT-FRZ60 has all the connections you would expect to find on a high-end installation projector including dual HDMI as well as a DIGITAL LINK/LAN (HDBaseT) input. While the PT-FRZ60 is a WUXGA projector, it can accept up to [email protected] content via its HDMI and DIGITAL LINK terminals (HDBaseT) for better integration into systems containing a 4K flat panel display. If the signal is split between the projector and a 4K display, the 4K TV will receive the highest resolution possible.
Like most Panasonic projectors we have reviewed in the past, the PT-FRZ60 produced a bright, accurate looking image. Its great picture, combined with its high build quality and installation flexibility, are the reasons why if you’re looking for an installation projector in this price range, PT-FRZ60 should be on your shortlist.
