- Excellent picture quality.
- A whole new level of 3D viewing.
- Customization and installation flexibility.
This intelligent iris system works by analyzing the brightness level of each image using a histogram, then adjusting the lamp power, iris and gamma curve* accordingly to create the ideal image. The adjustments are made virtually frame by frame. This helps the projector achieve a wide dynamic range with swift smoothness for added beauty in both dark and bright scenes.
* Parameters for adjusting the output brightness gradation level according to the input signal.
While many LCD projectors suffer from a “chicken wire” effect, Panasonic’ s pursuit of the highest possible image quality has successfully overcome this device limitation through the incorporation of Smooth Screen technology.
This uses the double refraction property of crystals to arrange pixels on a screen with no gaps between them.
The PT-AE8000/AT6000 features 480 Hz-driven LCD panels, which lengthen the time that the shutter is open about 1.5 times the duration of a 240-Hz drive system. Together with Panasonic’ s original high-precision overdrive technology, this improves the brightness of the images viewed through 3D Eyewear, while at the same time minimizing crosstalk, or double image seen as a result of the left image entering the right eye and vice versa.
Up to six settings can be stored in the Lens Memory, including zoom and focus positions for projecting in the normal 16:9 or 4:3 image ratio, and wide cinema projection settings. These settings can be manually recalled or set for automatic switching. The projector is able to detect 2.35:1 and 16:9 sources and retrieve the stored settings automatically. The new Lens Memory function also supports 3D viewing. For 3D viewing, the settings can be manually recalled. The Lens Memory function lets you easily view images with different image ratios on a wide 2.35:1 screen for an immersive, theater-like experience.
* In 3D viewing, the Lens Memory settings can only be manually recalled
A 2x optical power zoom/focus lens and a lens shift function together make it possible to project a 120-inch picture from as close as 3.6 meters (11 feet 10 inches) to the screen or as far as 7.2 meters (23 feet 7 inches) away. In addition, the image can be shifted ±100% vertically, and ±26% horizontally. This gives you outstanding setup flexibility. If you choose to ceiling-mount the projector, you can zoom and focus by remote control.
The functions vary depending on the model. See and check the functionality of each model.
