What Panasonic say about the PT-Z580
Get the best of both worlds in a projector that works brilliantly as a high-brightness portable for large boardrooms, meeting spaces, and classrooms, or as an easily managed ceiling installation solution thanks to single-cable DIGITAL LINK. However it’s used, there’s full wireless media casting support so everybody can serve punchy, pin-sharp pictures in well-lit spaces.
Deep Imaging Power
Boosted Picture Quality with Up to 5,500 lm and 16,000:1 Contrast
WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixel) resolution native to the PT-VZ585N/VZ580/VZ470 brings crisp Full HD to meeting spaces and classrooms for immersive viewing. With brightness of up to 5,500 lm and a class-leading 16,000:1 contrast ratio, your audience is treated to vivid colors, inky blacks, pure highlights, and clearly legible text reproduction even in bright conditions.
6-Colors Adjustment and Color Correction Functions
Correct slight color variations in the reproduction range of individual units set up for multi-projection. This is particularly useful for side-by-side configurations delivering ultra-wide-screen pictures. Very large images can be seamlessly presented in auditoriums and boardrooms.
Efficient Low-Maintenance Design
Less maintenance is not only good for your budget, but also the environment. Air filter replacement cycle is at a class-leading 7,000 hours, and the unit can be washed and reused twice to minimize waste. Lamp life is also pushed out to 7,000 hours in ECO2 mode, meaning part refreshment can be performed together with filter maintenance to reduce downtime.
Daylight View Basic
Panasonic technology assures sharp and comfortably viewed images even with the blinds open by enhancing fine details (particularly in dark areas of the image) that are normally difficult to see in bright rooms. A built-in sensor measures ambient light while Daylight View Basic adjusts halftone color and brightness to suit ambient illumination.
Technologies combine to keep noise levels down to just 29 dB, so the sound of the cooling fan is less distracting. This helps to keep attention focused on the presentation and quiet video scenes.
Comprehensive Wireless Support
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast
Supported on Windows PCs and Android devices, next-generation Miracast is a low-latency protocol that provides high-bandwidth mirroring of video, stills, and web content with fast connection and a range of exclusive and practical features for users.
Full-screen Wireless Playback
Miracast supports stutter-free audio and Full HD video transmission from device to projector screen at 1:1.
Supports Multiple Display Modes
Easily control how content on your device is displayed on the big screen by selecting the appropriate mode.
To ensure confidential information isn’t mistakenly transmitted to another display, users can enter a PIN code before casting media via Miracast.
Compared to Miracast on legacy models, these current-generation projectors cut connection time by about a third, and increase connectivity ratio by almost a half.
Selectable 5 GHz/2.4 GHz channels are offered to provide a stable connection in rooms with network congestion or radio interference.
Moderator Mode and Cut-In Function
Three modes allow the meeting chair to choose which participants’ devices may display content or present content uninterrupted over Miracast. Interactive mode enables open chairing.

Wireless Manager ME 6.4
Included Panasonic Wireless Manager software for Mac and Windows PC lets you cast media from the screen of your computer via wireless LAN with a host of display options right at your fingertips.
Dedicated apps for iOS and Android devices feature simple 3-step initial connection and support a variety of media and business document transmission. These apps also allow SSID and key information to be easily obtained via a QR Code that’s projected on a standby screen, again saving on setup time.
Easy Wireless Stick (Optional)
Supporting a full suite of features and eliminating the need for software installation, the Easy Wireless Stick dongle lets you plug and project from PC. After one-time initial setup, projection is automatic, and the device will display images from up to 16 computers at once, and is compatible with Windows 10.
Applications for PC, iOS, Android, and the optional Easy Wireless Stick dongle support Multi-Projector Mode. This function enables media display from up to 16 different devices in split-screen configuration. You can also transmit content from one PC to up to eight projectors or displays.
DIGITAL LINK Connection
DIGITAL LINK transmits uncompressed video, audio, and control commands through a single CAT 5e or higher STP cable for distances of up to 150 m (492 ft). Optional DIGITAL LINK Switcher or Digital Interface Box further simplifies installation, reduces cabling and associated costs, and enhances reliability.
You don’t need a computer to start presenting—just insert a USB memory device containing media and start projecting straight away. This includes Full HD video as well as still images. A simple Graphical User Interface (GUI) assures a smooth and stress-free presentation.
