Panasonic releases accurate, bright LCD projector

Panasonic PT-AX100U

Home theater projectors demand carefully controlled environments. Overly bright ambient light or the wrong screen size can easily ruin what would otherwise be a good image. Panasonic claims its new PT-AX100U LCD projector solves a number of the common problems that plague normal projection systems at home. The new model has a class-leading 2000-lumen brightness and achieves a 6,000:1 contrast ratio, according to Panasonic, which ensures that the resulting picture should be visible without being unacceptably bright. The projector also delivers much more accurate color than most, using a three-color filter instead of the more common white balance adjustments to achieve the intended output, the company says. Screen size should not be an issue for most homes: the AX100U can output a 100-inch, 720p image anywhere between three and six meters from the screen. Panasonic says that its new design will begin shipping later this month for $2999.
