"They have taken key roles in establishing the industry standards for 3D and bringing the experience from large screens to homes," he said.
A dual-core processing engine is responsible for the system's power, including frame sequential technology that processes 3D signals in a fashion that maintains benefits of 2D image enhancements. It will also convert 2D to 3D images for 3D conversion if desired, offering 5 different effect modes.
"Through this joint effort, the PT-AE7000U has been redesigned from the ground up to achieve higher basic 2D performance and is packed with unique 3D features to deliver studio-grade 3D content to the consumer."
Panasonic claim the 3D glasses used for tis current range of VIErA televisions will also work with the new projector, ensuring this is a gradual upgrade for existing enthusiast customers.
It also has some other new perks, such as a new optical engine that delivers a contrast ratio of 300,000:1 and 2,000 lumens of brightness. It also features 3 HDMI inputs, and has enough power to project a 120-inch image at 11-feet away, owed to its new 200W red-rich lamp and aperture ratio.
Australian pricing has yet to be confirmed, but the Panasonic PT-AE7000U is set to hit Japan in September at $3,499. Fingers crossed this Full HD 3D projector's price doesn't sting too badly.
