Live Design has named its top products of the past year again. Chosen by our panels of prestigious judges in three categories—lighting, projection, and sound—several months were spent debating the Live Design 2016-2017 Products Of The Year.
This stunning 27,000-lumen laser projector has quad pixel-drive technology to create breathtakingly detailed 4K images and dynamic contrast function for high 20,000:1 contrast, plus Panasonic’s real motion processor for liquid-smooth motion reproduction with 240Hz frame-rate. Its System Daylight View 3 ensures sharp images for projection-mapping applications in bright environments. “The PT-RQ32K has phenomenal contrast and black values in a form factor that is ideal for staging purposes,” says one of our judges. “Its use of laser phosphor as a source is going to make producers happy, with lamp life being increased over current arc solutions by a significant amount. The PT-RQ32K is a glimpse at the future of workhorse staging projectors everywhere." panasonic.net
Products of the year will be presented along with the Live Design Achievement Awards and the tenth annual Excellence in Live Design Awards during a ceremony, sponsored by GLP and Meyer Sound, on June 12 in New York.
