Panasonic only lists the dynamic contrast of the PT-MZ16KL which is a claimed 3,000,000:1, but the PT-MZ16KL native contrast appears to be pretty good as well. The fact that the PT-MZ16KL’s laser engine’s output brightness can be precisely modulated really helps the black level when viewing darker scenes.
While a good home theater projector can deliver better black levels and shadow detail, the PT-MZ16KL produced deep enough blacks for most education or business applications.
Since this projector is not intended for use in a completely dark room anyway, the ability to produce super deep blacks would not be missed. In addition, the 16,000 lumens of brightness combined with rich colors and good contrast really made video images pop, especially in spaces with some ambient light.
