Panasonic shows 2.35:1 capabale projector

Panasonic recently introduced its latest home theater projector, the PT-AE4000U. The 1080p LCD projector has a 1,600 lumens brightness ratio and a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. To help integrate it into user's existing home theater systems, there is a programmable 12V trigger for a drop-down screen and Panasonic's VIERA Link compatibility for control of all compatible system components with one remote. The lens produces up to a 120-inch picture at 11 feet away.

There is also support for 2.35:1 wide aspect ratios, though the default is 16:9, and 4:3 is an option. It will play video at a high-speed 120FPS as well as a standard 60FPS or at a cinema-native 24FPS. Connections include three HDMI 1.3a ports, one VGA port, one component, one S-video and one composite.

The PT-AE4000U will be available later in October, priced at $2,499. [via SlashGear]
