The Panasonic PT-DW7000U-K 3-Chip DLP widescreen based system, is ideal suited for fixed installations and public display venues including independent cinema, live events, educational institutions, staging, and public advertising as well as premium home theatre applications. The heavy-duty projector is also perfect for mission-critical environments such as 24-hour a day command and control centers. In addition, the native 16:9 projector offers a versatile presentation style where XGA graphics and high definition video can be combined on one screen.
The 3-chip system with DLP technology delivers outstanding image resolution, considered among the most advanced projector engines, a Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) chip is allocated to each of the red, green, and blue signals. This gives superior light utilization for high brightness, digital processing for low noise and linear white balance, extended device life for minimal image degradation, and a quick response that eliminates afterimages.
Superb Image Quality
• Contrast Ratio with Dynamic Iris
Panasonics original Dynamic Iris achieves a contrast ratio of 4000:1. Dynamic Iris constantly monitors the input signal, and adjusts the intensity of the light source to match it. This highly advanced function provides high speed, linear response to changing images with 256-step precision. It also combines with dynamic gamma control to produce deep, rich blacks while preserving the brightness in the lighter portions of dark scenes.
• 16-Bit Color Depth
For film like natural image by applying 16-bit drive to each of the RGB panels produces 8 times the level of expression (a total of 24 times for all three RGB panels) of conventional 13-bit drive devices. This system creates extremely smooth tonal expression with approx. 65,000 shades of gradation.
• Progressive Cinema Scan - 3/2 Pulldown
This interlace/progressive conversion technology automatically detects when the input signal is derived from filmed material and selects the optimum progressive processing method to assure faithful reproduction of the original image. It is also compatible with the high-definition 1080i format.
• Dynamic Sharpness Control
The Dynamic Sharpness Control circuit adjusts the video signal waveforms based on the difference in the brightness of adjacent pixels for a sharp, clear picture that is relatively unaffected by signal noise.
• Multi Screen Processor
The built-in multi-screen processor enables enlarged multi-screen projection without using any additional special equipment. Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time.
• Color Matching
When several units are used together, this function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors. The PC software assures easy, accurate control. Independent, 7-axis adjustment (red, green, blue, yellow, magenta, cyan, white) ensures high precision and minimizes color variations. To simplify the set-up process, you can adjust the projectors before delivering them to the presentation site. The colormatching function accommodates up to nine units, for multi-screen or single screen presentations.
• Edge Blending
This function controls the brightness at overlapping image edges to assure uniform, natural-looking, multi-screen images. When projecting HD sources with a single projector, part of the DMD is unused. In multi-screen projections with two projectors, the DMDs increase the images horizontal resolution while maximizing vertical resolution.
• Native 16:9 Panels
The PT-DW7000U is an advanced 3-chip DLP installation projector with 16:9 wide aspect panels. Unique to Panasonic, these panels let the PT-DW7000U project wide-screen images without sacrificing the superior image quality provided by DLP technology.
• Horizontal/Vertical Lens Shift
The projector is equipped with a motor-driven lens shifting function that moves the lens left, right, up, and down. It gives you easy, accurate adjustment when installing the projector.
• Optical Lenses for Various Venues
A wide range of optional lenses with different throw distances are available. Optional lenses with super-long focal lengths of 8.0 to 15.0 are ideal for use in screening rooms. The powered zoom/focus lenses enables the projector to perform superbly in an array of projection environments, from classrooms to conference rooms.
Its a snap to replace the click-in type lenses used in the bayonet system of this projector.
• Quiet Operation
The projector is designed for quiet operation. A geat developed liquid-cooled optical system and noise suppression duct and control system help minimize operating noise. The fan rotation can be adjusted in finer steps, so fan noise is reduced when rotation adjusts to match room temperature changes. This helps minimize sudden increases in fan noise during operation.
• Connection Terminals
The PT-DW7000U features two RGB inputs, a composite video input and output, and an S-Video input. It also offers RS-232C/422 control input and output, two remote inputs, and one remote output. In addition to the supplied connection terminals, an optional board module can be selected from a total of seven boards to match a variety of input source signals, including digital serial component signals.
• Dustproof Design with Sealed Optical Block
This minimizes the effect of dust by completely sealing the optical block. The dust free design helps ensure that this projector continues to deliver crisp, sharp, high-resolution images over an extended service life.
• Liquid Cooling System
In systems with DLP technology, the microscopic mirrors of the DMD chip turn the light on and off. During the off period, light is directed away from the lens. Handling the heat from this light is a major point in maintaining the long-term performance. Liquid Cooling system extends projector performance and attains a high level of reliability
• Dual Lamp System and Lamp Relay Function
The use of a two lamp system increases brightness and eliminates the need to interrupt a presentation if a lamp burns out (in dual lamp operation mode). In single lamp operation mode, the lamp relay function greatly extends continuous operating time. In a single lamp operation mode, the lamp relay function allows non stop operation 24 hours a day for up to 47 weeks without replacing the lamps.
• Wired LAN System
The optional interface board ET-MD75NT for 10Base-T and 100Base-TX makes the PT-DW7000U series network-ready. Simply hook up the projector to an existing LAN network for easy remote control and/or monitoring. System administrators will appreciate this feature when using the PT-DW7000U as a fixed-installation projector.
• Web Browser Control
Anybody can operate the PT-DW7000U series by remote control or monitor its status over a LAN network, because it is all done using the computers familiar Web browser.
• E-Mail Message Alert
The projector automatically sends an e-mail message to notify the operator when an error has occurred, or a lamp needs to be replaced, providing an advanced level of maintenance ease and reliability.
