About Panasonic PT-AR100U

The Panasonic PT-AR100U Full HD Projector produces bright, sharp images by employing a new, high-power 280W red-rich lamp and optical unit that combine to generate 2800 lumens of brightness for comfortable viewing in various lighting conditions. Together with 2800 lumens of brightness, Panasonic's Light Harmonizer 3 technology assists the versatile use of the projector by automatically adjusting the picture quality of the image to match the living room or theater room conditions. This is made possible by utilizing built-in ambient light and color sensors that adjust the white balance, gamma curve and sharpness settings to maintain bright, crisp pictures that match the viewing environment.

The digital image processing circuit brings greater clarity and sharpness to details, by reproducing fine nuances that were lost due to image compression. After a two dimensional analysis of the video signal's frequency in each scene, the new circuit optimizes the sharpness of each image portion based on the extracted information.

The PT-AR100 has two HDMI input terminals for digital transmission without image degradation. The HDMI input terminals also support Deep Color and the x.v.Color color space of the 1.3 standard. Deep Color provides 10-bit (over 1.07 billion) and 12-bit (over 68.7 billion) color depths for smooth gradation between colors, while x.v.Color compliance reproduces natural, lifelike images.

Panasonic PT-AR100U Features

  • 2x Optical Zoom Lens and Wide Lens Shift Range: The 2x optical zoom lens provides a wide throw range and the image can be shifted ±65% vertically and ±26% horizontally
  • HDMI with x.v.Color and Deep Color: The HDMI input terminals also support Deep Color and the x.v.Color color space of the 1.3 standard. Deep Color provides 10-bit and 12-bit color depths for smooth gradation between colors, while x.v.Color compliance reproduces natural, lifelike images
  • Programmable 12V Trigger for Automated Theater Setup: Two 12V triggers are provided. Since the input and output can be set independently (menu selectable), they can link flexibly with powered screens, room lights and powered curtains
  • VIERA Link: The PT-AR100 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-AR100, regardless of whether the source is a Blu-ray disc or a TV program stored on an HD recorder
  • Function Button for Instant Recall: A frequently used function can be assigned to the function button located on the remote for instant recall
  • Eco Management Functions: A number of functions are provided to reduce power consumption. They adjust the brightness according to ambient light conditions and reduce the lamp power when there is no signal input or the projector is in AV mute mode
  • Energy-Saving Intelligent Lamp Power Control: Advanced Panasonic digital circuitry intelligently determines the necessary power output of the lamp depending on the content being displayed by analyzing more than 3 billion different image patterns
  • Up to 3000 Hour Lamp Replacement Cycle and Simple Maintenance: Panasonic's proprietary lamp drive system helps maintain lamp performance, resulting in an up to 3000 hour lamp replacement cycle
  • Cinema Color Management Premium Enables Flexible Color Control: This color correction system enables free color control in two different modes. The point color correction mode lets you pick a point in the image and adjust that color without affecting the neighboring colors
  • 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 of nine 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
  • Waveform Monitor for Precise Calibration: When the output level of the source device fluctuates due to the performance of the device or its cable connections, the original black and white levels of the image content cannot be reproduced
  • Motion Effect Adds Smoothness and Sharpness to Fast-Moving Scenes: This digital image processing circuit brings greater clarity and sharpness to details, even in fast-moving scenes. The resulting images have a more natural, lifelike expression
  • 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)
  • Light Harmonizer 3 Produces Quality Pictures in Various Lightings: This is made possible by utilizing built-in ambient light and color sensors that adjust the white balance, gamma curve and sharpness settings to maintain bright, crisp pictures that match the viewing environment
  • 2800 Lumens Brightness from Newly Developed 280W Red-Rich Lamp: The PT-AR100 projector produces bright, sharp images by employing a new, high-power 280W red-rich lamp and optical unit that combine to generate 2800 lumens of brightness for comfortable viewing in various lighting conditions
  • Dynamic Iris Pro Delivers High 50,000:1 Contrast Ratio for Deep Blacks: 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
  • Sports Mode with Motion Effect for Sharp Action Scenes: In sports mode, together with the motion effect feature, the PT-AR100 detects and extenuates detail on moving objects, resulting in intensified action with clearer, more highlighted players
  • Game Mode for Stress-Free Playing: This mode improves signal processing for better response, allowing you to play games with minimal stress. It also reveals gradation in saturated areas to show details that are otherwise lost in very dark areas
  • Picture Modes for Different Occasions: The PT-AR100 features seven picture modes for various viewing situations, including modes that are ideal for sports, games and movies: normal, dynamic, game, sports, Rec. 709, cinema 1 and vivid cinema
  • Cinema 1 Mode Offers Hollywood Picture Quality: Movies can be enjoyed in Cinema 1 mode that has been tuned carefully to faithfully express the director's artistic intent. Panasonic has continued to work side by side with Hollywood experts to deliver this ideal image reproduction for viewing movies
