Panasonic PT-L785U Projector Now DeliveringHigh brightness, high performance portable projector (August 09, 2004)
Panasonic has announced the immediate availability of its PT-L785U portable, high-brightness XGA LCD projector that delivers stunning pictures, text and graphics for computer and video applications in classrooms, conference rooms, auditoriums, church halls and other small-to-mid size venues.
The PT-L785U offers 3200 lumens of brightness, a 500:1 contrast ratio, and displays vibrant images (in 16.7 million colors) in true 1024 X 768 XGA resolution, with a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 UXGA. To achieve its high picture quality, the projector utilizes advanced digital processing technologies -- including progressive cinema scan (3/2 pull down) circuitry, a 3D Digital Comb Filter and Dynamic Sharpness Control to reproduce ultra-crisp, ultra-clear pictures.
To ensure easy operation, the 12.8-pound PT-L785U has a motor-driven zoom/focus lens, one-touch auto setup and horizontal and vertical digital keystone correction. The HDTV-ready projector automatically synchronizes to display 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video, and supports most worldwide video standards, including NTSC, PAL and SECAM.
Its Direct Power Off function utilizes a built-in capacitor to keep the PT-L785Us fan running to cool down the projector even when the power is turned off, thereby saving lamp life and protecting the components against lamp heat.
The PT-L785U comes standard equipped with an RJ-45 connector for 10Base-T/100Base-TX Local Area Network (LAN) connection. When connected to a wired LAN, the PT-L785U has an assigned IP address, allowing a user to operate it 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 units operating condition changes or a lamp needs replacing. The wired LAN connection helps drive down support costs and minimizes downtime.
The projector also offers a wide range of interface capabilities including three RGB inputs; 24-pin DVI-D, S-Video and composite video inputs; and RS-232C connectability.
The PT-L785U is outfitted with a host of useful anti-theft functions including a Kensington lock, user password protection, control panel lock-out (which can only be canceled by the units remote control), and text superimposing whereby a user can program a text line -- such as the companys name, URL or warning of choice -- at the bottom of the projected image.
Other invaluable features include: quiet operation (as low as 35dB), sRGB color management to assure highly-accurate color reproduction, two 2 Watt speakers, the ability to project on screens from 40 to 300, easy lamp replacement via the units back panel, 4X digital zoom, selectable 9-language on-screen menu, advanced shutter for image muting, a freeze function, color temperature selection (standard/high/low), picture mode selection (standard/dynamic/natural), built-in carry handle, a cable cover (standard), and a full-function wireless remote with mouse control and laser pointer.
Optional click-in type interchangeable lenses for short/long/extra-long throw ratios include the ET-LE10 1.3-1.7:1 zoom lens, ET-LE20 2.6 4.2:1 zoom lens and ET-LE30 4.0-5.6:1 zoom lens. A wireless USB mouse receiver (ET-RMRC2) is also an option.
The projectors dimensions are 11-13/32 W x 5-3/8 H x 15-31/32 D. Panasonic offers a high level of service and support including a three-year limited warranty and a 24-hour ?ZipIt projector exchange program.
The PT-L785U is available at a suggested list price of $5,999.
