ATLANTA, GA (June 9, 2004) -Panasonic has introduced the PT-L785 portable, high-brightness XGA LCD projector here at INFOCOMM.

The new 13-pound LCD projector delivers stunning pictures, text and graphics for computer and video applications in classrooms, conference rooms, auditoriums, church halls and other mid-to-large venues. The PT-L785 offers 3200 lumens of brightness, a 500:1 contrast ratio, and displays vibrant images (in 16.7 million colors) in true 1024 X 768 XGA resolution. The projector's progressive cinema scan (3/2 pull down) circuitry reproduces moving images in crisp, ultra-clear resolution, and its sRGB color management assures highly-accurate color reproduction.

The PT-L785 offers a wide range of interface capabilities including three RGB inputs; 24-pin DVI-D, S-Video and composite video inputs; and RS-232C and wired LAN connectability. When connected to a wired LAN, the PT-L785 has an assigned IP address, allowing a user to operate it remotely, check its status using a web browser on a networked PC, and the projector can send e-mail messages to notify an user when the unit's operating condition changes or a lamp needs replacing. The wired LAN connection drives down support costs and minimizes downtime.

To ensure easy operation, the PT-L785 has a powered zoom/focus lens, one-touch auto setup and horizontal and vertical digital keystone correction. The HDTV-ready projector automatically synchronizes to display 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video, and supports most worldwide video standards, including NTSC, PAL and SECAM.

The PT-L785 is outfitted with a host of useful anti-theft functions including a Kensington lock, user password protection, control panel lock-out (which can only be canceled by the unit's remote control), and text superimposing whereby a user can program a text line-- such as the company's name, URL or warning of choice -- at the bottom of the projected image.

Its Direct Power Off function utilizes a built-in capacitor to keep the PT-L785's fan running to cool down the projector even when the power is turned off. Other invaluable features include two 2 Watt speakers, the ability to project on screens from 40" to 300, and easy lamp replacement via the unit's back panel.

Optional click-in type interchangeable lenses for short/long/extra-long throw ratios include the ET-LE10 1.3-1.7:1 zoom lens, ET-LE20 2.6 - 4.2:1 zoom lens and ET-LE30 4.0-5.6:1 zoom lens. A wireless USB mouse receiver (ET-RMRC2) is also an option.

The PT-L785 is available in August at a suggested list price of $5,999. For more information on Panasonic projectors, visit or phone 1-800-528-8601.
