About Panasonic PT-AE8000U

The Panasonic PT-AE8000U Full HD 3D Home Theater Projector offers 2400 lumens of brightness with a 500,000:1 contrast ratio. It comes equipped with a 220W red-rich lamp for increased red intensity, which enables the projector to produce bright images as well as remarkable color reproduction. The PT-AE8000U generates deeper blacks by incorporating Panasonic's Pure Contrast Plates, which match the LCD panel characteristics, virtually eliminating light leakage.

The PT-AE8000U delivers a 1080p video experience that ultimately provides excellent picture quality in 2D, as well as advanced 3D features that delivers a natural and comfortable movie theater experience at home. The PT-AE8000U is also equipped with three HDMI input terminals, which support DeepColor and x.v. Color and two 12V triggers for home theater automation, such as lighting and a motorized screen.

Panasonic PT-AE8000U Features

  • High 2400 Lumens of Brightness with the Advanced Red-Rich Lamp: The 220W red-rich lamp increases the luminous efficiency of the projector to achieve brighter images, even in 3D viewing, with excellent color purity
  • Full-HD Optimized Optical System: To assure maximum clarity and sharpness in full-HD images, this advanced optical system employs a full-HD-optimized lens unit comprising of 16 lens elements in 12 groups
  • 3D Motion Remaster Delivers Correct, Natural 3D Movement: This technology solves the problem caused by a phenomenon called the Mach-Dvorak effect, which occurs in many systems during 3D viewing. The active shutter 3D system displays left-eye and right-eye images alternately
  • Up to 480 Hz Compatible LCD Panels: The PT-AE8000's full-HD LCD panels provide bright images with high aperture ratio. The panels are also designed for 480 Hz processing capability for bright 3D images
  • 2x Optical Power Zoom / Focus and Wide Lens Shift Range: A 2x optical power zoom / focus lens and a lens shift function together make it possible to project a 120-inch picture from as close as 11.8' (3.6 m) to the screen or as far as 23.6' (7.2 m) away
  • Pure Contrast Plates Deliver High 500,000:1 Contrast Ratio: The pure contrast plates in the PT-AE8000 use a high-precision crystalline material that is carefully matched to the characteristics of the LCD panels to effectively correct the passage of light exiting the panels
  • Pure Color Filter Pro for Rich, Vibrant Colors: The optical filter optimizes the light spectrum from the UHM projector lamp, helping to produce deeper blacks while improving purity levels in the three primary colors (red, green and blue)
  • Dynamic Iris Pro Adds Beauty to Both Dark and Bright Scenes: This intelligent iris system works by analyzing the brightness level of each image using a histogram, then adjusting the lamp power, iris and gamma curve accordingly to create the ideal image
  • Smooth Screen Technology Creates Film-Like Texture: While many LCD projectors suffer from a chicken wire effect, Panasonic's pursuit of the highest possible image quality has successfully overcome this device limitation through the incorporation of smooth screen technology
  • Dual Core Processing Engine: High-quality 2D image processing, including Frame Creation and Detail Clarity Processor, can be enjoyed in 3D as well, with the incorporation of the high-performance dual core processing engine
  • Frame Creation 2 for Motion Blur Reduction in 3D/2D Viewing: A double-speed frame interpolation display for both 2D and 3D viewing, even during 2D-3D conversion, greatly improves the clarity of motion images, reproducing sharp and clear images for fast moving scenes in sports and action movies
  • Detail Clarity Processor 4 Gives Natural Clarity to Even the Finest Details: This digital image processing circuit brings greater clarity and sharpness to details embedded in the image. After analyzing the video signal frequency in each scene
  • Lens Memory for 2D/3D Viewing: Up to six settings, in 2D or 3D viewing, can be stored in the lens memory, including zoom and focus positions for projecting in the normal 16:9 or 4:3 image ratio and wide cinema projection settings
  • 2D-3D Conversion: 2D to 3D image conversion is possible, with five 3D effect modes to select from
  • Seven Picture Modes: For each 2D and 3D viewing, seven different picture modes (normal, dynamic, Rec. 709, D-cinema, cinema 1, cinema 2 and game mode for reduced frame delay) are provided
  • Advanced 3D Adjustment Functions: A variety of 3D viewing adjustments also provide a more comfortable viewing experience at home. These include 3D lens memory, 3D zoom and focus, 3D color management and 3D keystone correction
  • 3D Viewing Monitor for Adjustment of Depth-of-Field: The projection size for viewing 3D images can be selected from among 9 different sizes, ranging from 40 inches to 200 inches diagonally
  • 3D Picture Balance with Waveform Monitor: The projector is able to show the right and left image side by side to check if the two sides have the same colors. The difference may occur due to poor content quality
  • 3D Viewing Monitor for Adjustment of Depth-of-Field: The PT-AE8000 uses frame sequential technology for 3D image projection. When viewing 3D content, signals from the PT-AE8000's built-in infrared transmitter precisely control the left and right shutters of the active 3D eyewear
  • Waveform Monitor for Precise Calibration: With the PT-AE8000 you can view the waveforms on the screen and adjust the settings both automatically and manually as you prefer
  • Advanced Gamma Adjustment Function: The gamma curve can be flexibly controlled, allowing precise calibration according to the signal source and environment. Brightness (Y), R, G and B can each be adjusted at any fifteen points
  • Split Adjust Mode for Easy Picture Adjustment: You can freeze any scene you wish and then make adjustments while easily comparing the original image and the adjusted image side by side
  • VIERA Link for Easy Operation: The PT-AE8000 supports VIERA Link. If your home theater system contains VIERA Link-ready equipment, projection can be started by using only the remote control unit of the PT-AE8000
  • Up to 5000-Hour Lamp Replacement Cycle and Simple Maintenance: Panasonic's proprietary lamp drive system helps maintain lamp performance, resulting in an up to 5000-hour lamp replacement cycle. For easy maintenance, you can replace the filter from the side and the lamp from the top of the projector
  • Ecology Conscious Design: Panasonic works from every angle to minimize environmental impact in the product design, production and delivery processes and in the performance of the product during its life cycle
