Superb Basic Performance in a Compact, 3.5-kg (7.7-lb) Body Versatile Eco Performance Helps the Environment A Full 4,000 lm/3,000 lm*3 of Brightness and 2,000:1 Contrast Intelligent Lamp Control System Reduces Power Consumption A remarkable 4,000 lm/3,000 lm*3 of brightness and 2,000:1 contrast have been achieved in a compact, easy-to-carry, 3.5-kg (7.7-lb) body. Bright, clear images enhance a variety of viewing situations and applications. When the lamp power is set to Auto, the intelligent lamp control system automatically adjusts the lamp output in accordance with the brightness of the projected image and reduces it by up to 70%. It also combines with color shift correction, which corrects the shift in the color balance that occurs when the lamp output reduces. As a result, power consumption is effectively reduced while excellent color reproduction is maintained. These handy portables offer a lamp replacement cycle of up-to-5,000 hours*1 for extended, maintenance-free use. Three-layered air filters, in which each layer contains a different mesh size, are installed in two parts of the body. Increasing the filters’ surface area made it possible to achieve a replacement cycle of up-to-6,000 hours.*2 This reduces maintenance hassles for long periods of use, and helps to lower maintenance costs and reduce environmental impact. Air Filter Unit 3-Layer Air Filter Metal mesh Dust Urethane Large Hole punched (metal) Medium Small Quiet 29-dB*4 Design Does Not Interrupt Meetings or Classes The quiet design keeps noise levels down to 29 dB,*4 so the sound of the cooling fan is hardly noticeable. This helps the audience to keep their attention on the speech when someone is giving a presentation or on the screen images during quiet scenes. Lamp output Normal mode Eco mode Bright Input signal level Dark Intelligent Lamp Control System Lamp output A Maximum 5,000-Hour*1 Lamp Replacement Cycle and 6,000-Hour*2 Air Filter Replacement Cycle Conventional Lamp System Up to 70% Bright Input signal level Bright scene Dark Dark scene Displaying the Total Amount of Reduced Power Consumption and CO2 Emission When the lamp power is set to Eco1, Eco2 or Auto, you can display the total amount of reduced power consumption and decreased CO2 emission compared to when the lamp power is set to Normal. It can be shown by day, month or year. Quantitatively checking these reductions helps to increase the awareness of energy saving and the environment. Environmentally Friendly Standby Power Consumption of Only 0.48 W*5 When Standby mode is set to Eco, the standby power consumption is low at 0.48 W.*5 This lowers running costs, and helps to reduce environment impact. Convenient Functions for Portable and Ceiling-Mounted Applications 1.6x Zoom Lens Allows Flexible Installation When projecting onto a 100-inch wide screen, the 1.6x zooms lens lets the PT-VW330, for example, support a wide range of projection distances, from 2.5 to 4.1 meters (8.2 to 13.5 feet). Auto Input Signal Search and Input Guidance Enables Easy Setup Side-by-Side and P-in-P Function*6 (PT-VW330) for Effective Presentations and Lectures Two different image sources can be simultaneously displayed onto a single screen. You can also switch to P-in-P (Picture-in-Picture) mode and display a sub-window onto the main screen. The sub-window can be positioned at any of the four corners (upper left, upper right, lower left, lower right) to expand the usable area as only a wide-screen projector can do. The Auto Input Signal Search function automatically detects the input signal and selects the input channel based on the signal. This function lets you start a presentation without any complicated setup required. If the input signal cannot be detected, the Input Guidance function will display connection instructions on the projector screen, for easy setup. 10-Watt Speakers and a Microphone Input Enables Audio Playback Directly from the Projector These portable projectors feature high-output 10-watt speakers that produce a high sound volume without requiring external speakers. They also feature a microphone input terminal that allows microphone sounds to be output from the projector. These features make presentations even more effective. HDMI Input Terminal and Abundant Interfaces Extensive interfaces include an HDMI input terminal, 2 sets of computer (RGB) input terminals, a wired LAN terminal, and a serial (RS-232C) terminal for external control. These features support a wide range of system architectures for portable or ceiling-mounted use. Side-by-Side Mode P-in-P Mode Top-Panel Lamp Replacement Simplifies Maintenance The lamp can be reached through the top panel for easy replacement. This eliminates the need to detach the projector from its ceiling bracket and greatly simplifies maintenance. Convenient Carrying Bag A carrying bag with a handy shoulder strap comes with the projector. This bag helps protect the projector from impacts. Other Features •Direct Power Off right after use •Effective theft prevention with the startup logo*7 •Projector identification system for remote control allocation of up to six projectors 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.

Do not install the projector in locations that are subject to excessive water, humidity, steam or oily smoke. Doing so may result in fire, malfunction or electric shock. NOTE ON USE 1 The projector uses a high-voltage mercury lamp under high internal pressure. This lamp may break, emitting a popping sound, or fail to illuminate, due to impact or extended use. 2 The high-wattage lamp becomes very hot during operation. Please observe the following precautions: • Never place objects on top of the projector while it is in operation. • Make sure there is an unobstructed space of 1,000 mm (39-3/8 in) or more around the projector’s exhaust openings. • If stacking projector units, care must be taken to provide the recommended space between units. These space requirements also apply to installation where only one projector unit is operating at one time and the other unit is used as a backup. • If the projector is placed in a box or enclosure, the temperature of the air surrounding the projector must match the operating temperature listed in the specifications table during use. Also, make sure the projector’s intake and exhaust openings are not blocked. Ensure there is sufficient ventilation to prevent hot air from the exhaust openings being recirculated into the intake opening. 3 The lamp replacement cycle duration becomes shorter if the projector is operated repeatedly for short periods. • The lamp replacement cycle varies greatly depending on individual lamp characteristics and usage conditions. • The brightness of the lamp will gradually decrease with use. 4 Due to natural characteristics of lamps, screen brightness may fluctuate. This is not an indication of faulty lamp performance. For more information about Panasonic projectors http://panasonic.net/avc/projector Weights and dimensions shown are approximate.
