Coming Soon: The PT-AE7000E Full HD 3D LCD Projector18th August 2011     By: Panasonic Media

Panasonic has announced the PT-AE7000E, its first Full HD 3D LCD home theater projector with a 1080p (1,920 x 1,080 pixel) resolution. The PT-AE7000E is also the world's first* 3D projector to use transparent LCD panels driven at 480Hz that, combined with Panasonic's original Overdrive Technology, delivers significantly lower levels of crosstalk. Thanks to the newly-developed optical engine, which produces an incredible high contrast ratio (300,000:1) and brightness (2,000 lumens), the PT-AE7000E delivers both stunning 2D images and comfortable and immersive 3D viewing experience at home.

In Collaboration with Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory

The PT-AE7000E's key 3D projection technologies were developed in collaboration with Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory engineers, who are heavily engaged in the creation of 3D Blu-ray™ discs. They have taken key roles in establishing the industry standards for 3D and bringing the experience from large screens to homes. Through this joint effort, the PT-AE7000E has been redesigned from the ground up to achieve higher basic 2D performance and packed with unique 3D features to deliver the studio-grade 3D content to the consumer. "When we create our projectors, we aim to produce images that mirror movie directors' artistic vision and intent" said Art Rankin, Director of Projectors and Higher Education Sector at Panasonic Solutions Company, provider of collaboration, information-sharing and decision-support solutions for government and commercial enterprises.

The PT-AE7000E comes rich with features for those looking to customize their home theaters. Many Blu-ray™ discs and DVDs come in aspects that are even wider than the projector's 16:9 aspect ratio to match the image size (2.35:1) seen at movie theaters. The projector's Intelligent Lens Memory feature makes it possible for the user to easily program up to six different zoom/focus positions. Automatic switching between 16:9 and 2.35:1 video content is also possible thanks to the signal aspect detection capability on the PT-AE7000E.

Green Product

In addition to its outstanding features, the new PT-AE7000E is also an ecological product. Its intelligent power management system reduces the lamp power to the exact required level of brightness depending on the content being displayed. Advanced Panasonic digital circuitry intelligently determines the necessary power output by analyzing more than 3 billion different image patterns. This advanced analysis process reduces the main power consumption by as much as 10 percent when the Dynamic Iris function is operating thus saving energy.

Other ecological considerations include an off-timer that reduces wasteful power consumption, an extremely low standby power consumption of 0.08 watts, and a 4,000 hour (normal mode)/5,000 hour (eco mode) lamp life.

The Panasonic PT-AE7000E Full HD 3D home theater projector is made in Japan and will be available beginning of October 2011, through authorised Panasonic resellers. To learn more, take a look at the current range of Panasonic Projectors available in New Zealand.
