On average data projectors from Panasonic are rated 91 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all projector brands that we have looked at.

Just Released Seven Months Ago

This Panasonic projector is one of the newest projectors to be released.

Supports Full HD

The Panasonic PT-RZ970 supports full HD. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for the last year do not support full HD.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-RZ970 the projector brightnesss range from 450 ANSI lumens to 10,000 ANSI lumens. At 9,400 ANSI lumens, the PT-RZ970 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PT-RZ970.

Chart Edit

WUXGA (1920x1200) Projector Native Resolution

The PT-RZ970 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

A WUXGA (1920x1200) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution amongst all projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PT-RZ970.

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is the worst resolution amongst comparable types of data projector.

Very Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At 24,000 hours, the Panasonic PT-RZ970 has a very long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-RZ970. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PT-RZ970 the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 3,000h to 24,000h.

Chart Edit

Six BNC Input Portss

The PT-RZ970 has more BNC input portss than most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PT-RZ970. This projector is a six BNC input ports data projector compared to most of the new multimedia projectors which only have between one and five BNC input portss.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last 12 months have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the Panasonic PT-RZ970 which has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.
