High-Contrast Visibility in Bright Rooms

Give your presentation team an edge with bright and vivid 3,800 lm* images behind them. Thanks to 20,000:1 contrast—25 % more than our

Image Adjustment for Distortion-free Projection

V/H Keystone Correction (H: ±15 ° auto/manual, V: ±15 ° manual) provides some leeway for image geometry adjustment when projecting off-axis to the screen center, while Curved Screen Correction tames distortion when shooting onto convex or concave surfaces.

Light and Compact for Easy Portability

Intended for easy room-to-room portability or as an on-ceiling solution supporting Panasonic software and third-party control protocols over LAN, the PT-TW381R Series’ light 3.9 kg (8.6 lbs) weight makes handling a breeze. Manual controls let presenters set up quickly and easily on-site and commence their workshop almost immediately with less wasted time.

Selectable Modes Suit Your Projection Priorities

Choose your preferred mix of high brightness, extended maintenance, or quiet operation. Normal Mode prioritizes picture quality in bright environments, while Quiet Mode projects at a virtually inaudible 30 dB*1 with an extended filter replacement cycle. Eco Mode strikes a useful balance between the two with 20,000-hour*2 lamp-life and 35 dB*1 operation.

*1 38 dB in NORMAL Mode.

*2 Lamp life is approximately 20,000 hours in Eco Mode and approximately 10,000 hours in Normal/Quiet Mode. Replacement timing varies depending on operating environment and usage conditions.
