How to Find the Right Projector23rd August 2013     By: Panasonic Media

Our extensive range of Panasonic projectors can be overwhelming if you're not quite sure what you're looking for. To make the search as easy and convenient as possible, we have created user-friendly tools to help you find the best product for your specific needs.

Whether you know exactly what you want or just want to narrow it down, these instruments will make it a simple process.  


Product Finder


The Product Finder located on our global website, allows you to filter your selection by your specific requirements. It will only load models that match your criteria based on the information you provide.  

Brightness, contrast and resolution are the primary filters but if you select "more options", which is located just under brightness, then you can filter by feature, light source, technology, picture quality and several other specified fields.

The provided screen shots can help you find your way around the page.


The Projector Selector Tool (downloadable application)

Update January 2014 - now available in Android! 

The Projector Selector tool was specially designed to help you narrow down projector options when trying to determine the best product for a specific application. 

The app goes one step further than the Product Finder with its Throw Distance calculator.

Without this capability, Projector Selector creator Simon Wordsworth explains: "You would have to measure Throw Distance yourself and then look at every model individually to see if it will suit the situation. Painful!" 

It is a perfect tool for dealers to use on a regular basis and it is also a great way for consumers to do research before heading to a local provider.

Currently available free of charge for IOS devices*, the Projector Selector application has the following features:

  • Various filters to select the best projector for the job.
  • Built in LUX meter.
  • Quote generator that includes all the criteria you have requested and the selected projector.  It can then be emailed to a customer or sent to you as a record.
  • Browse catalogues option.
  • Review, edit and email options for quotes. 
  • Built in throw distance calculator.

This user-friendly app will make it easier to determine the most appropriate projector for your needs. It is free and downloadable from iTunes.

*The Projector Selector tool is compatible with Android, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) or iPad. Requires iOS 5.1 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. 



*UPDATE - October 2013*

A new version of the Projector Selector App is out and includes the following features:

  • Now includes all projector images and data in the app, no longer requires data file updates.
  • iPhone 5 scaling optimisation.
  • Remove lens options from Product Catalogue listing, improves catalogue listing view.
