The RQ25K is said to be the world’s smallest and lightest 3-Chip DLP projector, some 40% smaller and 35% lighter than a predecessor model, with up to 20,000lm brightness and 4K resolution.

LANG AG acquires 100 next-gen Panasonic projectors

LANG AG has announced a major investment in 100 units of Panasonic’s new RQ25K Series.

The RQ25K is said to be the world’s smallest and lightest 3-Chip DLP projector with up to 20,000lm brightness and 4K resolution.

The investment has been made as rental and staging companies face an increasingly complex market, with production companies facing rising transport costs and staff shortages, alongside increasingly flexible bookings from event organisers.

“This significant investment, and extension of our more than 30-year relationship with Panasonic, will help our customers meet today’s industry challenges,” said Tobias Lang, CEO at LANG AG. “The Panasonic RQ25K Projector Series delivers next-generation visual technology that wows the crowds with the latest and greatest image quality, streamlines workflows to enable fast and effective set-up and control and delivers unrivalled reliability.”

The RQ25K is 40% smaller and 35% lighter than its RQ22K predecessor, making it easier to transport and stack and more convenient to position for fixed installations. The Series simplifies everything from installation to operation with time-saving workflow streamlining features. Integration into wider systems is also fast and simple, as it is the first Panasonic projector to be Intel Smart Display Module (Intel® SDM)-ready.

“From the moment Panasonic introduced its first 20,000lm projectors back in 2012 it has defined the sector,” said Lang. “We immediately saw the benefits of the new RQ25K Series for our customers. With the SDM slot it sets new benchmarks in terms of configurability and connectivity, bridging to IP-based systems like Panasonic PTZ cameras or Kairos. We deliberately decided to go with this 4K platform only as we see the market moving to higher resolutions, so we have unified the fleet on 4K. We look forward to being one of the first European providers to offer this ground-breaking AV technology for our rental customers.”

Jan Markus Jahn, head of the media entertainment business unit at Panasonic Connect Europe, added: “This LANG investment in RQ25, alongside its existing IP-based PTZ cameras and the Kairos production platform, means it will be one of the first companies able to offer its customers a complete glass-to-glass IP-based workflow. This is a major milestone for the AV industry and opens new doors for staging and events customers, especially when dealing with hybrid and online productions.
