Panasonic Unveils New Fixed-Installation DLP ProjectorNew PT-D4000U Provides Cost-Effective Technologies for Outstanding Brightness, Excellent Picture Quality, High Reliability, and Flexible System Integration
ANAHEIM, Calif., June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- INFOCOMM Booth #4019 -- Panasonic Projector Systems Company, Unit of Panasonic Corporation of North America, today introduced a new, single-chip DLP projector that is optimal for cost- effective, fixed installation. Designed for business conference rooms, game arcades, casinos, restaurants, stores and showrooms, education classrooms, and other fixed installations, the new PT-D4000U projector provides long-lasting brightness, outstanding picture quality, high reliability, and flexible installation for system integrators.
"Our new projector builds upon our popular PT-D3500U model by introducing a new dual-lamp system for increased brightness, as well as enhanced technologies that deliver smoother, more detailed images," said Thomas Zitelli, president of Panasonic Projector Systems Company. "With its high energy efficiency, advanced features and competitive pricing, the PT-D4000U also provides a great ROI for system integrators."
Higher Brightness. Better Picture Quality.
The PT-D4000U also boasts several improved features that produce better picture quality. The full 10-bit processing system provides smooth tonal expression, while the IP conversion circuit produces more detailed images. The projector's high performance frame noise reduction feature lowers image graininess while suppressing the noises that are common in fast-action scenes. A 3D Color Management feature helps optimize color saturation, hue and brightness that were not possible with conventional projectors.
The PT-D4000U's progressive cinema scan helps project an accurate image reproduction by automatically detecting a film-based input signal and selecting the optimal progressive processing method. Furthermore, the projector's Dynamic Sharpness Control adjusts waveforms based on the difference in brightness of adjacent pixels to help produce a sharper picture that is relatively unaffected by signal noise.
Flexible System Integration
The projectors' new wireless remote control provides a longer transmission capacity of 98 feet. The projector can be controlled remotely using built-in browser software over a LAN connection, or by Web browser that also performs maintenance monitoring and e-mail alert messaging functions. The projector is also compliant with the new PJLink(TM) control over Ethernet protocol. The PT-D4000U offers a host of Panasonic standard features, including direct power off, rear-access for easy lamp replacement, numerous connection terminals, and a one-touch bayonet system for easily changing lenses.
-- No halogenated flame retardants are used in the cabinet
-- The packing case and operating manual are made from recycled paper
-- Auto Power save activates standby mode when no signal is input
The Panasonic PT-D4000U projector will be available in Q3 2007 at authorized presentation systems dealers. The projector's MSRP is approximately $6,499.
