Panasonic adds 4K displays at all price points

Multiple SQ1 displays can also be daisy-chained to form a videowall

Panasonic has added four new models – the TH-655SQ1, TH-55SQ1, TH49SQ1 and TH43SQ1 – to its SQ1 series of 4K display panels. These models present smaller options within the premium series, at 65, 55, 49 and 43 inches, respectively. They include the same features as the existing 98- and 86-inch panels already in the series, and offer a ‘slim and stylish design’ for aesthetic purposes.

The SQ1 panels are reportedly capable of 24/7 continuous operation and a brightness of 500cd/m2, with In-Plane Switching technology and anti-glare treatment for increased visibility from multiple viewing angles. The series is also HDR compatible and includes 12-axis colour management. The projectors are designed for easy set up with the manufacturer’s proprietary 4K Digital Link, which is based on the HDBaseT standard and connects video, audio and control signals to external devices via a single LAN cable. Meanwhile, a built-in 4K USB media player negates the need for an external source.

Multiple SQ1 displays can also be daisy-chained to form a videowall. ‘We are among the first to introduce the new Intel SDM (Smart Display Module) slot to the SQ1 range,’ noted Hartmut Kulessa from Panasonic. ‘SDM boards can house either an Intel CPU or interfaces such as SDI, NDI or VoIP. This means it’s possible to tailor the display and its connectivity to the application.’

At the lower end of the cost spectrum, Panasonic has introduced the entry-level CQ1 series of 4K display panels. They are built for 16 hours of continuous daily operation and are fully equipped with basic terminals that support HDMI CEC. ‘The CQ1 series will meet the needs of the vast majority of organisations looking for 4K displays for information sharing and communication, but without the need for ultra-high brightness and round the clock operation,’ added Mr Kulessa.


Elsewhere along the video chain, Panasonic has launched three new zero offset lenses for its range of 1-Chip and 3-Chip DLP projectors. The ET-DLE020 ultra-short throw zoom lens fits all Panasonic 1-Chip DLP projectors and is said to be the industry’s first ultra-short throw projector to feature a powered optical zoom. The ET-D3LEW200 short-throw zoom lens and ET-D3LEU100 ultra-short throw lens, meanwhile, are made for use with Panasonic’s high brightness 3-Chip DLP laser projectors and are also suitable for 20,000- and 30,000-lumen, WUXGA and 4K+ projectors.
