With 3000 lumens and a 500:1 contrast ratio the Panasonic PT-LB78U Projector possesses the image power to project vivid, saturated pictures in a variety of lighting situations. It even has four picture mode selections to match its capabilities to the ambient lighting condition.

The unit houses an advanced dust-resistant design, which minimizes image degradation by reducing the entry of dust into the unit. That and the "gapless" touch-sensor controls on the top panel provide an airtight structure that is impenetrable to any outside elements.
