The Panasonic PT-RW430UK WXGA LED Projector (Black) features 3500 lumens of brightness. Rate of brightness deterioration in the LED/Laser-combined light source is extremely slow compared to lamp-based projectors. The SOLID SHINE drive uses a built-in sensor to constantly detect the light intensity of the light source and correct corresponding changes in white balance. This all helps to maintain excellent picture quality for a long period of time. Contrast is outstanding too, at 20,000:1 and images are reproduced with a wide dynamic range.
This new light source requires no maintenance for approximately 20,000 hours and is fully capable of 24x7 operation. In many cases, this means no maintenance until your next refresh cycle. Naturally, there are no lamp burnout problems during use, so reliability is further increased. There is also no filter to clean due to carefully engineered sealed optics.
The Daylight View Basic technology achieves sharp, easy-to-see images by clearly reproducing the details in dark image areas, which were previously difficult to see in brightly lit rooms. A built-in sensor measures the ambient light and the Daylight View Basic function adjusts the halftone color and brightness level according to the surrounding illumination.
Equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, the PT-RW430UK allows transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 100 meters (328 feet) through a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations.
In 1-chip DLP system projectors with conventional lamp, a color wheel is used for time-division multiplexing in a method where the human eye combines the result to achieve a full-color palette. In the PT-RW430UW, this is done by on/off switching of the LED/Laser-combined light source. A unique Panasonic power supply circuit provides time-division multiplexing with ultrafast 30x drive. The resulting, high-definition images exhibit virtually no color breaking.
System capabilities such as a 2x zoom lens, an exceptionally wide horizontal and vertical lens shift range and 360-degree installation support highly flexible installation.
