Panasonic PT-AX200U Front Yard Theater

Panasonic PT-AX200U outdoor movie night This time of year in Florida is perfect for outdoor movie nights. So, I took home the new Panasonic PT-AX200U this weekend for some family fun on the front lawn.

Here are some shots of our setup and the PT-AX200U in action. We are shooting on a white, twin sheet stretched across my front porch. Not an ideal surface, but this ends up giving us about a 110-inch image in 16:9 format. With that size, the 2000-lumen brightness rating of the Panasonic PT-AX200U really makes a difference. The video came to life as the sun set. The easy lens shift and wide zoom range also made setup a snap. Once connected, it took just seconds to aim, zoom and focus the image to fit our space. Connection was easy too. Just one HDMI cable from the AX200U to the Oppo Digital DV-981HD. From there, the DVD player connected to our receiver, which powered our speakers on the porch.

The Panasonic PT-AE2000U In Stock Now at ProjectorPeople.com!

The eagerly anticipated new Panasonic PT-AE2000U 1080p home theater projector is in our warehouse, and units are flying out fast to fulfill customer orders. The new Panasonic projector includes the latest D7 LCD panel, which we have discussed previously in our blog. But what other features have home theater enthusiasts drooling? Cool new features include more inputs, 16-bit digital processing, and some great geek gizmos. Read on for the details.

What

New Technology from 3LCD – The “D7”

And the technology marches on. The makers of 3LCD technology have recently announced their latest and greatest 3LCD technology, the “D7” with C2FINE™ chip technology. So, what’s so great about the D7? Read on.

The D7 Difference

As we blogged about in our CEDIA 1080p Home Theater Projectors article last month, the new D7 chip improves upon the contrast ratio, color processing, and virtually eliminates the (now nearly fabled) screen door effect in new 3LCD 1080p projectors. C2FINE™ technology utilizes a vertical alignment technique to provide higher contrast ratios, deeper blacks and up to 12-bit color processing to produce over 68 billion unique colors.

Quick Take on D7 Improvements:
  • Contrast ratios – Now can acheive as high as 50,000:1 contrast. 16,000:1 is more typical.
  • Color Processing – Now with 12-bit color for over 68 billion unique colors
  • Image Quality – Reduced “screen door” effect. All but eliminated on with D7 technology.
  • Competitive Prices – Prices are not known for these models yet, but it’s very safe to guestimate that there will be several options under $3,000.

But It Must Be 1080p!

You might call it a catch, or just the way it goes, but the new D7 chip is only available on 1080p high-definition (native HD resolution) projectors. The good news is that the new chip will be powering what are likely to be the most popular 3LCD projectors for the next several months. If you’re on the fence, the D7 image improvements are one more reason to go 1080p.

New Projectors Coming Soon with D7

Sanyo PLV-Z2000
The Sanyo PLV-Z2000 includes enhanced 3D color management system and two HDMI 1.3 inputs.

Panasonic PT-AE2000U
Follow up to the top selling PT-AE1000U, the new Panasonic PT-AE2000U will include 3 HDMI inputs, a new “Split Adjust” mode allows users to split the screen into two halves, one to make picture adjustments and one to see those adjustments as a baseline reference, a waveform monitor – seen mostly on professional video and film equipment for measuring the level of brightness output from a given video signal source. It will also automatically verify the source device is outputting at full dynamic range and makes automatic adjustments to optimize for you. Of course it still has the features you love like lens shift and a 2.0x zoom lens.
Available late October/November.
