When projecting onto a 100-inch wide screen,
the 1.6x zoom lens lets the PT-VW345NZ/VW340Z support a wide range of projection distances,
from 2.5 to 4.1 meters (8.2 to 13.5 feet).*2
- 1.6x zoom for the
1.2x zoom for the PT-VX42Z.
- The PT-VX415NZ/VX410Z supports projection distance from 2.4 to 3.9 meters (7.9 to 12.8 feet) and the PT-VX42Z supports from 3.5 to 4.2 meter (11.5 to 13.8 feet) for a 100-inch screen (4:3 aspect ratio).
NOTE: This illustration shows the projection distances of the PT-VW345NZ/VW340Z
All you need to do is designate four points as the corners of the projected image, and this function easily carries out
horizontal and vertical keystone correction.
* The PT-VW345NZ/VW340Z/VX415NZ/VX410Z supports corner keystone correction. The PT-VX42Z supports only vertical keystone correction.
Auto Input Signal Search
The Auto Input Signal Search function automatically detects the input signal and selects the input channel based on the signal. This function lets you start a presentation without any complicated setup required.
Input Guidance Function
If the input signal cannot be detected, the Input Guidance function will display connection instructions on the projector screen, for easy setup.
Real-Time Keystone Correction* (PT-VW340Z/VX410Z/VX42Z)
With Real-Time Keystone Correction, the projector automatically senses if you adjust its angle (in the vertical direction) during operation and instantly makes whatever keystone correction is necessary for optimal viewing.
* Keystone correction is performed in the PT-VW345NZ/VX415NZ when using the Easy Setting function.
Color-board and Blackboard modes
Color-board and Blackboard modes adjust the colors to make high-quality projection possible in rooms that don’t have a screen.
When the Auto Setup button is pressed, a camera inside the projector detects the condition of the projected image. In addition to Auto Input Signal Search and Auto Setup, the projector then makes the following adjustments. This makes setup even easier.
A focusing guide is displayed to help the focus adjustment.
The projection screen size and horizontal/vertical Keystone correction (trapezoidal correction) are automatically adjusted to fit the screen.*
* If the screen border cannot be detected, the projection screen size adjustment is not made.
In this case, only the horizontal/vertical Keystone correction is done.
Wall Color Compensation
When projecting onto a colored wall, blackboard, or other similar surface, the white balance is automatically adjusted.
Two different image sources can be simultaneously displayed onto a single screen. You can also switch to P-in-P (Picture-in-Picture) mode and display a sub-window onto the main screen. The sub-window can be positioned at any of the four corners (upper left, upper right, lower left, lower right) to expand the usable area as only a wide-screen projector can do.
* The image source must be a combination of an analog input and a digital signal.
These portable projectors feature high-output 10-watt speakers that produce a high sound volume without requiring external speakers. They also feature a microphone input terminal that allows microphone sounds to be output from the projector. These features make presentations even more effective.
Extensive interfaces include an HDMI input terminal, 2 sets of computer (RGB) input terminals, a wired LAN terminal, and a serial (RS-232C) terminal for external control. These features support a wide range of system architectures for portable or ceiling-mounted use.

Web browser on a computer connected through a wired LAN system lets you remotely operate projectors and check their status. An e-mail messaging function can also notify you when a lamp needs replacement, and indicate the overall projector status.
In addition, Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software is available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic projectors from a single PC.
The wired LAN terminal is compatible with PJLink™ (class1), an open protocol that is used by many manufacturers, to enable integrated control of systems that contain different brands of projectors.
The LAN terminal allows a computer connected to the network to use Crestron Connected™ application software to manage and control system devices. Besides, the AMX Device Discovery technology is built in the PT-VW340 Series.
For easier maintenance, you can replace the lamp from the top and the air filter from the side, even after the projector is installed on the ceiling. This eliminates the need to detach the projector from its mounting bracket in ceiling-mounted applications.
