Contrast Ratio of 500:1 for Cinema-Quality Images The PT-AE100 is equipped with
a newly developed optical system to achieve a contract
ratio of 500:1, and thus recreate a picture with depth, as
does a cinema projector. The result is rich, film quality
pictures that no conventional LCD projector can imitate.
Digital Gamma Correction for Rich Expression of Gradations
Traditional LCD panels characteristically saturate,
resulting in blurred dark and bright areas. The PT-AE100
is equipped with a 10-bit digital gamma correction circuit
that operates in the opposite direction. By correcting
linearly from dark to bright the ideal gradation is
realized, leading to the most delicate image reproduction
possible. Natural colours, like those of skin and hair, or
the vibrancy of a brightly coloured dress, are delivered
with smooth shading and accurate image gradation.
Screen LCD Panel (X3)
Incorporates a widescreen, 16:9 aspect ratio LCD panel.
For the first time ever in the industry, Panasonic has
employed the 0.7" Native 16:9 LCD panel in the
PT-AE100. This makes for both a stunningly wide screen and
superbly high-quality pictures. Incorporating component
connectors, you can now enjoy the most outstanding
widescreen video experience.
Short Throw Lens It enables display of larger
images in small rooms using an extra-short throw lens. The
extra-short throw lens makes it possible to produce a
large display in the smallest of rooms. Experience a large
screen without the need of a huge space. This projector
has a footprint the size of a letter pad, but can still
produce a large widescreen picture. Compare that to the
space taken by a traditional technology large-screen
television. Furthermore, the 1.2x zoom makes selecting the
set-up place easier than ever.
A newly developed cooling fan reduces fan noise. Noise has
been reduced with a new quieter fan, and by using twin
blades, light that leaks from the grill is also cut down.
