Live Design Announces “Projection Products of The Year (Accessories)” Goes to the ET-DLE030.

The ET-DLE030 is honored with a "Live Design Projection Products Of The Year" award
in the category of accessory.

Ultra short throw lens ET-DLE030

Product Information

Award trophy was presented during the Broadway Master Classes.

Panasonic's ultra-short-throw lens ET-DLE030 enables large-screen projection from a short distance. By mounting the ET-DLE030 ultra-short-throw lens onto Panasonic's 1-chip DLP™ projector, you can shorten the projection distance by approximately 60 % compared with our ET-DLE085 and ET-DLE080 short throw lenses. This huge savings in space lets you project images in spots where you previously could not—such as places where the ceiling is too high, or where there is not enough front or rear space for projecting.

Excerpts from the Product Review:

“Until now, short-throw and ultra-short-throw projection has typically been limited to smaller fixed-lens projectors used in seminar rooms and in meeting room environments.
Panasonic has changed that with ET-DLE030 shortthrow lenses for larger format single-chip DLP™ projectors.”
