Product Highlights
  • WXGA Resolution of 1280 x 800
  • 4800 Lumens Brightness
  • 1.6x Zoom
  • High Contrast Ratio of 3500:1

The Panasonic PT-VW440U 4800 Lumens Portable LCD Projector features a high brightness of 4800 lumens and a variable iris that produces a high contrast ratio of 3,500:1. The end result is a sharper and brighter picture. The Daylight View Basic technology in this projector achieves sharp, easy to see images by clearly reproducing the images in dark image areas, which were previously difficult to see in brightly lit rooms. A built-in sensor measures the ambient light and the Daylight View Basic function adjusts the halftone color and brightness level according to the surrounding illumination. 

Thanks to a lamp replacement cycle of 4,000 hours, this projector delivers runs for extended time without interruption. The air filters have a replacement cycle of 4,000 hours, reducing maintenance hassles for long periods of use, and helps to lower maintenance costs and reduce environmental impact. The quiet design keeps noise levels down to 29 dB, so the sound of the cooling fan is hardly noticeable. This helps the audience to keep their attention on the speech when someone is giving a presentation or on the screen images during quiet scenes. 

When projecting onto a 100.0" (254.0cm) wide screen, the 1.6x zoom lens lets the PT-VW440U support a wide range of projection distances, from 8.2 to 13.5' (2.5 to 4.1m). When the Standby mode is set to Eco, the standby power consumption is up to 0.48 W, which lowers running costs, and helps to reduce environment impact.

The high-output 10 W mono speaker produces a high sound volume without requiring external speakers. The projector also features a microphone input terminal that allows microphone sounds to be output from the projector. These features make presentations even more effective. 

The projector includes an HDMI input terminal, 2 sets of computer (RGB) input terminals, a wired LAN terminal, and a serial (RS-232C) terminal for external control. These features support a wide range of system architectures for portable or ceiling-mounted use. 

The web browser on a computer connected through a LAN system lets you remotely operate projectors and check their status. An e-mail messaging function can also notify you when a lamp needs replacement, and indicate the overall projector status. In addition, Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software is available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic projectors from a single PC. The wired LAN terminal is compatible with PJLink (class1), an open protocol that is used by many manufacturers, to enable integrated control of systems that contain different brands of projectors. 

The LAN terminal allows a computer connected to the network to use Crestron Connected application software to manage and control system devices. The projector features the Lens Shift function in the vertical direction. It moves the image position vertically without distorting it.

Note! Not equipped with USB A/USB B terminals.
