The PT-VMZ50 is listed as a 5,000 lumens projector. Just how close did the PT-VMZ50 come to hitting its target 5,000 lumens? I took 3-4 readings about 15-20% out from the center of the lens which usually gives a pretty good approximation of ANSI lumens. At full wide angle I measured the PT-VMZ50 in its brightest picture mode which is DYNAMIC with LIGHT POWER set to “Normal”.
Panasonic PT-VMZ50 Brightness: 5,698 Lumens
At wide zoom, High-Bright mode.
The PT-VMZ50 measured 5,698 lumens which is above Panasonic brightness claim. For the seven available modes, I also measured them at mid-zoom since it is common for a projector to be zoomed in a bit when installed.
