Panasonic PT-TW342U overview

  • 1Description

Present without casting shadows on the screen with the Panasonic PT-TW342U 3300-Lumen WXGA Short-Throw LCD Projector. Its throw ratio of 0.46:1 enables you to place it as close as 1.31' to the projection surface to virtually eliminate the possibility of shadows caused by someone walking in front of it. Its brightness of 3300 lumens will be able to overcome ambient light in many settings, while its dynamic contrast ratio of 12,000:1 and native resolution of 1280 x 800 will produce clear images at most viewing distances.

The PT-TW342U will connect to most video sources with its HDMI, RCA composite video, and two VGA inputs. It also has analog audio inputs and a 10-Watt speaker so audio can accompany your video. Furthermore, a VGA and analog audio output will allow you to daisy-chain the projector to other projectors or displays, enabling them to show the same video and audio feeds. This model is controllable via Ethernet or serial connections and includes a VGA cable and an IR remote control.

80" Screen Images at a Distance of 2.62'
Close-range projection reduces not only the shadows of the presenter but also the glare of the projection light, making lectures and meetings comfortable.
High Brightness and Contrast Ratio
The projector provides 3300 lumens of brightness and a 12,000:1 contrast. Bright and clear images enhance the variety of viewing situations and applications.
Up to 10,000-Hour Lamp and Air Filter Replacement Cycle
The PT-TW342U has a maximum lamp replacement cycle of up to 10,000 hours. The air filter also has a replacement cycle of up to 10,000 hours. This reduces maintenance hassles for long periods of use, and helps to lower maintenance costs and reduce environmental impact.
Daylight View Lite
The Daylight View Lite function can be activated from the remote control for comfortable viewing during presentations and lectures in a bright room.
Corner Keystone Correction Enables Angled Projection
All you need to do is designate four points as the corners of the projected image, and this function carries out horizontal and vertical keystone correction.
Curved Screen Correction
Barrel and pincushion distortion is easily corrected when projecting onto a curved screen.
Easy Remote Monitoring and Control over a LAN
A web browser on a computer connected through a wired LAN system lets you remotely operate projectors and check their status. In addition, Multi-Monitoring and Control Software is available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic projectors from a single computer. 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.
Designed for Easy Lamp and Air Filter Replacement
For easier maintenance, you can replace the lamp from the top and the air filter from the side, even after the projector is installed on the ceiling. This eliminates the need to detach the projector from its mounting bracket in ceiling-mounted applications.
Quiet Design to Hold Viewers' Attention
In Eco2 mode, the noise level is as low as 28 dB. This helps your audience to keep their attention on the discussion or on the screen images during quiet scenes.
Easy Wireless Projection with Optional Module
Inserting the separately sold ET-WML100 Wireless Module into the USB port on the projector enables wireless projection from Windows computers with Presenter Light Ver. 1.0 installed, or from iOS or Android devices with VueMagic Pro installed.
Memory Viewer Function
Insert a USB memory device into the projector and start projection without a computer.
USB Display Function via a USB Cable
USB display outputs images and sounds from the computer by connecting to the USB port with a single USB cable.
HDMI and Other Interfaces
The projector supports a variety of system architectures. It includes an HDMI input terminal, two sets of VGA input terminals, and a VGA output terminal.
Auto Input Signal Search
The Auto Input Signal Search function automatically detects the input signal and selects the input channel based on the signal. This lets you start a presentation without any complicated setup required.
Color-Board and Blackboard (Green) Modes
Color-board and Blackboard (Green) modes adjust the colors to provide high-quality projection in rooms that don't have a traditional projector screen.
10-Watt Speaker Enables Audio Playback Directly from the Projector
The projector features a 10-Watt speaker that produces sound without requiring external speakers.
