LCD Panels Driven at 480 Hz and Original Overdrive Technology for Bright 3D Image

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.

・Brightness:
Insufficient brightness.

・Crosstalk:
Crosstalk results from mixing right and left images. To suppress crosstalk, shutter is closed longer and brightness is lost.

Bright but uncomfortable 3D image

・Brightness:
Images are brightened by increasing the time that the 3D Eyewear shutter is open.

・Crosstalk:
Mixed R and L images are seen, resulting in crosstalk.

・Brightness:
Images are brightened by increasing the time that the 3D Eyewear shutter is open.

・Crosstalk:
Images are smooth, with little crosstalk, because of the faster driven LCD panels.

3D Motion Remaster Takes 3D Realism to New Heights

Active Shutter 3D provides an overwhelming 3D experience by delivering Full-HD images to both eyes. Panasonic's 3D Motion Remaster technology was developed to further enhance the naturalness and realism of Active Shutter 3D images.
Why do 3D images sometimes appear unnatural?

Active Shutter 3D can result in somewhat unnatural 3D effects when a subject moves quickly in a horizontal direction.
This problem is caused by a phenomenon called the Mach-Dvorak effect, resulting from the limitation of temporal resolution in 3D image display due to the Active Shutter operating principle.

The Active Shutter 3D system displays left eye and right eye images alternately. This means that left eye and right eye images that were captured at the same instant are shown with a time lag.
During this time lag, especially when watching a scene in which an object moves quickly and horizontally across the screen, the viewer’s brain automatically speculates and forms an image at a position that differs from the actual shown image. This results in incorrect depth perception and makes the horizontal movement appear unnatural.

3D Motion Remaster technology achieves smooth, natural moving 3D images by creating properly positioned images to compensate for time lags.
The PT-AE8000/AT6000 equipped with 3D Motion Remaster reproduce more natural and realistic images from 3D content with fast motions such as sports.

sometimes perceive the effects of 3D Motion Remaster used with Active Shutter 3D Eyewear differently.

Dual Core Processing Engine

High-quality 2D image processing, including Frame Creation and Detail Clarity Processor, can be enjoyed in 3D as well, with the incorporation of the high-performance dual core processing engine.

This engine, which is centered around a 3D CiW1 chip, conducts high-speed, high-precision signal processing, producing high-grade 3D images.

Frame Creation 2 for Motion Blur Reduction in 3D/2D Viewing

A double-speed frame interpolation display for both 2D and 3D viewing, even during 2D-3D conversion, greatly improves the clarity of motion images, reproducing sharp and clear images for fast moving scenes in sports and action movies.
For 24p signal input, four frames are calculated and interpolated for each existing frame, to enable 5x speed (120-Hz) display.

2D-3D Conversion

2D to 3D image conversion is possible, with five 3D effect modes to select from.

Detail Clarity Processor 4 Gives Natural Clarity to Even the Finest Details

This digital image processing circuit brings greater clarity and sharpness to details embedded in the image.
After analyzing the video signal frequency in each scene, the circuit optimizes the sharpness of each part of the
image based on the extracted information. The resulting images, 3D or 2D, have more natural, lifelike expression
than those of previous image-processing methods.

Advanced 3D Adjustment Functions

A variety of 3D viewing adjustments also provide a more comfortable viewing experience at home.
These include 3D Lens Memory, 3D zoom and focus, 3D color management, and 3D keystone correction.

3D Viewing Monitor for Adjustment of Depth-of-Field

The projection size for viewing 3D images can be selected from among 9 different sizes, ranging from
40 inches to 200 inches diagonally.* The amount of parallax is optimized according to the projection size,
so comfortable, easy-to-view 3D images can be enjoyed at any size. Either of three monitor styles can be selected.

* Projection size for 2D images covers from 40 inches to 300 inches diagonally.

Mode 1:

Displays the parallax of the entire image at the bottom of the projection screen.

Mode 2:

Displays the maximum parallax of the entire image in one dimension.

Mode 3:

Displays negative and positive parallax with red and blue color for parallax adjustments.

3D Viewing Monitor

3D Picture Balance with Waveform Monitor

The projector is able to show the right and left image side by side to check if the two sides have the same colors. The difference may occur due to poor content quality. With the Waveform Monitor displayed, you can adjust the contrast, brightness, color and tint as desired, and up to three adjustment settings can be stored in memory for instant recall.

Waveform Monitor

The left and right picture balance sometimes varies due to differences in the camera's shooting conditions for the left and right images.
The Waveform Monitor lets you adjust this balance.

Precisely Tuned 3D Projection with Optional Panasonic 3D Eyewear

The PT-AE8000/AT6000 uses frame sequential technology for 3D image projection. When viewing 3D content, signals from the PT-AE8000/AT6000’s built-in infrared transmitter precisely control the left and right shutters of the active 3D eyewear.

Built-in 3D Infrared Transmitter

The PT-AE8000/AT6000 comes equipped with a built-in transmitter with maximum transmission distance of six meters (about 20 feet).* For more range up to ten meters (about 33 feet), an optional infrared transmitter, ET-TRM110 is
available for greater installation flexibility.

* The indicated distance between the projector and screen is valid when the conditions described below are satisfied. Also, note that the transmission distance can differ largely due to strong light, such as sunlight and fluorescent lamps, at the installation location or due to the screen type or material.
CONDITION 1: The distance between the screen and the 3D Eyewear (viewing position) is 5 meters to the front of the screen. CONDITION 2: The screen is 100 inches, measured diagonally, and has a screen gain of 1. CONDITION 3: The projector is set up in front of the screen, and the lens shift function is not used. CONDITION 4: The [3D IR TRANSMITTER] setting in the main unit is set to [STRONG].
