Panasonic Introduce Full HD And 3D Projector With World Firsts

By Tony Ibrahim | Monday | 01/08/2011

Adding to its repertoire of home theatre appliances, Panasonic now take another step forward producing a projector that includes Full HD capabilities with the rewards of 3D technology.

The PT-AE7000U delivers Full HD with a pixel resolution of 1920 by 1080, while being the first in the world to use transparent LCD panel technology that runs at 480Hz. Combined with Panasonic's original overdrive tech, TWICE reports the culmination of this technology reduces crosstalk in 3D applications.

 

Capable of 2D and 3D viewing, the latter is achieved through glasses that use active shutter technology.

"When we create our projectors, our goal is to produce images that mirror movie directors' artistic vision and intent," said Panasonic's Solutions projectors and higher education sector director, Art Rankin.

It seems there's credence behind that claim, with Panasonic liaising with the Hollywood Laboratory engineers who are masters in the technology used in 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," 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.
