Panasonic unveils new series of portable projectors
Panasonic has used ISE 2018 to announce a new high brightness, lightweight, portable
projector series, designed for use in offices and classrooms.
The PT-VW360 3LCD projector, is capable of 4,000 lumens of brightness at WXGA and offers a
superb blend of picture quality, practical features, quiet operation (28 dB), and long-lasting reliability.
The PT-VW360 series is the lightest and brightest projector in its class, offering high-contrast
imaging on screens up to 300 inches, whilst boosting contrast to 20,000:1 with an iris mechanism,
reproducing text and graphics clearly.
Available from June 2018, the PT-VW360 can assist with focus, screen-fitting, and wall-colour
compensation, meaning projector setup and realignment has never been easier for users. A flexible
1.6x zoom lens, curved screen and corner keystone correction are among the features available for
ease of projecting off-centre at various throw distances.
“The projector’s daylight view lite detects the levels of ambient light level and optimises brightness
output for enhanced picture quality,” explains Hartmut Kulessa, European Marketing Manager at
Panasonic. “However, it’s the 3.3kg weight that will appeal to teachers and office workers who need
to carry projectors from room to room.”
Plug-and-play connectivity allows access to two HDMI® inputs, USB input display from PC, and a
memory viewer function so that content can be projected from a USB flash-memory drive. The
addition of an optional ET-WML100 wireless module, enables projection over Wi-Fi®.
“With robust construction, low maintenance, and high brightness, the PT-VW360 Series punches
above its weight in both cost and performance, while enabling users the flexibility to project
anywhere,” added Hartmut Kulessa.
