The Panasonic PT-VMZ50 is a business class 3LCD laser projector with WUXGA (1920 x 1200), resolution and rated brightness of 5,000 lumens. It offers a lot of performance and features for its current street price of $2499.
The PT-VMZ50 is the smallest and lightest 3LCD laser projector rated for 5000 lumens. Lifting the PT-VMZ50 to mount it on the ceiling would easy since it weighs less than 16 pounds. Anyone that spends their days manhandling projectors will appreciate the compact size and light weight of the PT-VMZ50.
In addition to being bright and compact, the PT-VMZ50’s picture quality is very good. It also includes several features that make it a great solution for many meeting and classrooms.
The PT-VMZ50 uses a laser/phosphor wheel light engine rated at 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation. The PT-VMZ50 utilizes a 3LCD imager instead of the single DLP chip found in many smaller laser projectors so it reproduces bright rich colors.
The PT-VMZ50 has all the features you would expect from a business class projector at its price point. These features include horizontal and vertical lens shift plus a decent amount of image zoom, lots of inputs along with wireless control and connectivity. While this is a business class projector, it is also suitable for use in a classroom.
