The cabinet is designed with a straight airflow path, from intake to exhaust.
The shielding of the lens section, where dust is likely to enter, has been further improved to keep dust out. And the sealing performance of the air filter unit and air intake duct has been increased to prevent the entry of dust from the filter periphery, resulting in a highly dust-resistant structure.
The Eco Filter unit, which efficiently captures dust in the intake airflow path, requires no replacement for up to12,000 hours.* This large, pleated Micro Cut Filter (electrostatic filter) uses an ion effect to trap minute dust particles, further raising the overall dust-trapping capability.
These features minimize the entry of dust into the optical block and maintain brightness over a long period of time, while reducing the hassle of maintenance. Also, in addition to achieving a long replacement cycle, the Eco Filter can be washed with water** and reused as an environmental consideration.
* The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.
** When washing with water, please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions. Also, we recommend replacing the filter with a new one after it has been washed and reused twice. If the filter is not sufficiently clean after washing, replace it with a new one.
Inorganic Materials Maintain Image Quality Longer
The PT-EZ570 Series projectors’ optical block maintains a high level of performance over time, due to the use of
inorganic materials in the LCD panels and polarizers, thus achieving a replacement cycle of 10,000 hours.
It also makes them the logical choice for a truly dependable LCD projector system.
* This is the maximum value when the lamp power is set to Eco1 or Eco2, with the lamp turned on for 2 hours and off for 0.25 hours. Increases in the lamp on cycle or extended use with the lamp continuously turned on will shorten the lamp replacement cycle. When the lamp power is set to Normal, the lamp replacement cycle is 3,000 hours. The usage environment affects the lamp replacement cycle.
Environmentally Friensly Standby Power Consumption of Only 0.4 W
When the Standby mode is set to Eco, the standby power consumption is low at 0.4 W.*
This lowers running costs, and helps to reduce environment impact.
* Standby mode: Eco. When Standby mode is set to Eco, network functions such as standby on via LAN are not available.
Also, only certain commands can be received for external control using the serial terminal.
Intelligent Lamp Control System Reduces Power Consumption
When the lamp power is set to Auto, the Intelligent Lamp Control system automatically adjusts the lamp output in accordance with the brightness of the projected image and reduces it by up to 70 %.* It also combines with color shift correction, which corrects the shift in the color balance that occurs when the lamp output drops. As a result, power consumption is effectively reduced while excellent color reproduction is maintained.
A number of functions are provided to reduce power consumption. They adjust the brightness according to ambient light conditions, and reduce the lamp power when there is no signal input or the projector is in AV Mute mode*. You can easily set the Eco Management functions according to operating conditions by using the ECO button on the remote control.
