The Panasonic PT-DS12KU 3-Chip DLP Projector features a dual-lamp system that reproduces stunning lifelike visuals at a native SXGA+ resolution while providing full 12,000 lumens of brightness.
When in Lamp Relay mode, the projector eliminates any interruptions if a lamp should fail, and enables 24/7 projection. The projector’s Dynamic Iris feature uses a scene-linking aperture mechanism to achieve a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 without lowering its brightness. This helps to reproduce deeper, richer blacks, and provides images with more detailed textures. An integrated Eco Filter combines with the dust-resistant cabinet to allow long-term use in harsh conditions, while a maintenance cycle of up to 12,000 hours reduces the time and cost of repair.
The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift function can be easily adjusted with the remote control. The unit can also be rotated 360° vertically, to accommodate various installation conditions. The lens-centered design contributes to easy installation.
This Panasonic circuit optimizes the sharpness of each image, based on the superhigh-, high-, medium-, and low-frequency components of the extracted image information. The resulting images have more natural, lifelike expressions.
This projector can be easily operated remotely over a LAN network, because it is all done using the computer's familiar web browser. Furthermore, the projector sends an e-mail message notify the operator when an error has needs to be replaced.
The PT-DS12KU projector is compatible with both passive and active 3D projection systems. It combines with either a separate, external 100/120/144 Hz drive with IR emitter and active shutter glasses, or an active filter and passive glasses, for viewing 3D images.
