Panasonic Unveils Cost-Efficient DLP Projector

  • Panasonic Broadcast is introducing the ultra-bright, one-chip PT-D3500U DLP projector, providing the outstanding visual impact and return-on-investment that users have been looking for in a cost-efficient unit.
  • The PT-D3500U's high-precision DLP system produces stunning, ultra-crisp 1024 x 768 XGA resolution images at a high-contrast ratio of 1600:1. With a brightness of over 3,500 lumens and a compact 17.4-pound design, this projector is ideal for a broad range of venues, from classrooms and meeting rooms to retail stores and showrooms, from exhibits to public spaces.
  • Setup of the PT-D3500U is easy with one-touch auto-setup with Digital Keystone Correction. For exceptional connection flexibility, the projector offers a full array of input terminals, including a DVI-D connector (HDCP compliant), audio input/output terminals, one computer (RGB), one 5 BNC component, composite and S-Video. In addition, the PT-D3500U has a wired LAN connector, RS-232C and external remote terminals.
  • New to the PT-D3500U is a PJLink function for standardized LAN control. When connected to a wired LAN, a user can operate a PT-3500U remotely, check its status using a web browser on a networked PC, and the projector can send e-mail messages to notify a user when the unit's operating condition changes or a lamp needs replacing. The wired LAN connection drives down support costs and minimizes downtime, and is highly beneficial in a fixed installation. The PT-D3500U is designed for quiet operation (33dB in high, 29dB in low mode). The HDTV-ready unit automatically synchronizes to display 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480/576i video in the 16:9 wide aspect ratio. Its Direct Power Off function keeps the projector's fan running to cool down the unit even when the power is turned off. The PT-D3500U offers several security features to prevent unauthorized use, including password protection, operation key lock and Kensington lock.
