AED group has announced that it will invest in 85 Panasonic PT-RZ21K high-brightness projectors. With the purchase of these projectors AED continues its strategy in the total switch to laser projection in rental. With its 20,000 lumen, the PT-RZ21K is the lightest and brightest 20,000 lumen laser projector available on the market today.

The PT-RZ21K uses the SolidShine laser technology from Panasonic for a more stable image quality. Unique to the PT-RZ21K is that it can be used together with its 20,000 lumen lamp variant, the PT-DZ21K, for mappings or edge blending, thanks to the built-in 'color mix and match' function. With this function differences in light or color between laser projectors and light projectors are solved. This offers the advantage that rental companies can offer a combination of the PT-RZ21K and the PT-DZ21K for large projects with many projectors without any problems.

The dual laser source in the projector provides built-in redundancy, allowing it to work 24/7 maintenance free for more than 20,000 hours. With a light source of more than 20,000 lumens, the PT-RZ21K is also one of the brightest projectors on the market and extremely suitable for use at large events and concerts for the entire entertainment sector. In addition, it is also the only 20,000 lumens projector on the market that is completely filter-free.

Thierry Heldenbergh, Managing Director at AED Display: "We have been successfully running the PT-DZ21 20,000 lumen lamp projector in our range for several years now. With the new PT-RZ21 laser projector that Panasonic is launching now, it is a logical evolution towards laser projection, so it should not be missing in our range. This ensures that the need for maintenance and also the downtime of the projectors themselves drastically reduces. Our customers can get acquainted with these new projectors for the first time during the AED Customer Nights in Belgium on 13 and 14 December, at AED in The Netherlands from 15 to 17 January, in Germany on 25 & 26 January and in the UK on 21 & 22 February. "

Karl Everaert, Country Manager Benelux at Panasonic System Communications Company Europe: "We are delighted with the trust that AED places in our products and the switch they make to laser projection. We are convinced that the rental and event sector will fully switch to laser projection within a few years. That is why we are confident that the PT-RZ21K will take on the same leading role as the PT-DZ21K thanks to its robustness and reliability. "
