With 3500 lumens and a 600:1 contrast ratio, the Panasonic PT-FW430U WXGA LCD Projector possesses the image power to project vivid, saturated pictures in a variety of lighting situations. Panasonic's LCD projector offers brighter and more vivid images with full high definition resolution.

The Panasonic PT-FW430U Projector touts a Daylight View Premium feature that provides bright, crisp images even in brightly lit conditions for a superb picture no matter the time of day. Along with the RGB Booster, this combines high brightness and superb color reproduction; a host of technologies work together to enhance image quality.

The unit houses an advanced dust-resistant design, which minimizes image degradation by reducing the entry of dust into the unit. The effect of dust has been minimized by completely sealing the optical block, which provides an airtight structure that is impenetrable to any outside elements. The unit is a dual lamp design and auto cleaning filter technology extends operating stability and contributes to reliability. It is no secret that the Panasonic PT-FW430U projector is brighter and better than ever with a compilation of numerous Panasonic proprietary technologies.

Increased Flexibility for Easy Installation and Operation
Panasonic's PT-FW430U is easy to install, user-friendly and reliable. With features such as a 2x zoom lens, horizontal/vertical lens shift and HDMI/DVI-I digital input terminals, these high-performing projectors fit well within existing mounting positions and cablings, thereby eliminating the need for potentially disruptive and costly construction. In new installations, the same features easily accommodate a wide range of room sizes and shapes

Dust Resistant
A dust resistant cabinet and a new, reusable eco-filter with a 12,000 hour replacement cycle protect the internal electronic components from dust
Easy Maintenance
The lamp is easily replaced from the rear and the filter is quickly replaced through the side panel, even while the projector is mounted on a ceiling
