Panasonic’s advanced technologies bring crisp images even in daytime brightness, and improve color reproduction accuracy in movies, to deliver images with a refined Hollywood tuning technology. Whether it is used for a house party filled with friends or for family movie night, the PT-AR100 will keep you and your guests engaged in the story and action through its stunning image quality. Large-Screen Entertainment for the Group 2,800-lm Brightness from Newly Developed 280-W Red-Rich Lamp Picture Modes for Different Occasions The PT-AR100 projector produces bright, sharp images by employing a new, high-power 280-W RedRich Lamp and optical unit that combine to generate 2,800 lm of brightness for comfortable viewing in various lighting conditions. The PT-AR100 features seven picture modes for various viewing situations, including modes that are ideal for sports, games and movies: Normal, Dynamic, Game, Sports, Rec. 709, Cinema 1 and Vivid Cinema. • Cinema 1 Mode Offers Hollywood Picture Quality Movies can be enjoyed in Cinema 1 mode that has been tuned carefully to faithfully express the director’s artistic intent. Panasonic has continued to work side by side with Hollywood experts to deliver this ideal image reproduction for viewing movies. • Game Mode for Stress-Free Playing This mode improves signal processing for better response, allowing you to play games with minimal stress. It also reveals gradation in saturated areas to show details that are otherwise lost in very dark areas. • Sports Mode with Motion Effect for Sharp Action Scenes In Sports mode, together with the Motion Effect feature, the PT-AR100 detects and extenuates detail on moving objects, resulting in intensified action with clearer, more highlighted players. Light Harmonizer 3 Produces Quality Pictures in Various Lightings Together with 2,800 lm of brightness, Panasonic’s Light Harmonizer 3 technology assists the versatile use of the projector by automatically adjusting the picture quality of the image to match the living room or theater room conditions. This is made possible by utilizing built-in ambient light and color sensors that adjust the white balance, gamma curve, and sharpness settings to maintain bright, crisp pictures that match the viewing environment. Light Harmonizer 3 automatically optimizes picture quality so that the images match the viewing environment. Superb Picture Quality Dynamic Iris Pro Delivers High 50,000:1 Contrast Ratio for Deep Blacks This intelligent iris system works by analyzing the brightness level of each image using a histogram, then adjusting the lamp power, iris and gamma curve*1 accordingly to create the ideal image. The adjustments are made virtually frame by frame. This achieves an astounding contrast ratio of 50,000:1, providing a wide dynamic range with swift smoothness for added beauty in both dark and bright scenes. Pure Color Filter Pro for Rich, Vibrant Colors The optical filter optimizes the light spectrum from the UHM projector lamp, helping to produce deeper blacks while improving purity levels in the three primary colors (red, green and blue). This advanced filter system improves color purity to cover a range that extends from the HDTV standard (Rec. 709 mode)*2 to the color gamut used in digital cinema.*3 This gives images the deep, rich coloring that distinguishes movie images. Sub iris The sub iris cuts light leakage. Detail Clarity Processor 3 Gives Natural Clarity to Even the Finest Details This digital image processing circuit brings greater clarity and sharpness to details, by reproducing fine nuances that were lost due to image compression. After a two dimensional analysis of the video signal’s frequency in each scene, the new circuit optimizes the sharpness of each image portion based on the extracted information. The resulting images have a more natural, lifelike expression than those of previous image-processing methods. The detection of super-high-frequency image components also enables more faithful reproduction of highly detailed information, such as the film grain in movies. The effect can be adjusted in eight steps from 0 to +7. Motion Effect Adds Smoothness and Sharpness to Fast-Moving Scenes This digital image processing circuit brings greater clarity and sharpness to details, even in fast-moving scenes. The resulting images have a more natural, lifelike expression. Waveform Monitor for Precise Calibration When the output level of the source device fluctuates due to the performance of the device or its cable connections, the original black and white levels of the image content cannot be reproduced. With the PT-AR100, you can view the waveforms on the screen and adjust the settings either automatically or manually as you prefer. The PT-AR100 gives home consumers a projector with the kind of waveform monitor used in equipment for professionals. Split Adjust Mode for Easy Picture Adjustment You can freeze any scene you wish, and then make adjustments while easily comparing the original image and the adjusted image side-by-side. Advanced Gamma Adjustment Function The gamma curve can be flexibly controlled, allowing precise calibration according to the signal source and environment. Brightness (Y), R, G and B can each be adjusted at any of nine points. Adjustment point positions can be shifted both horizontally and vertically to bring out the desired gradation level. Cinema Color Management Premium Enables Flexible Color Control Conventional sharpness control: Sharpness is applied uniformly, which can cause a halo or ring effect. Detail Clarity Processor 3: Signal frequency is extracted realtime and necessary sharpness is applied at varying degrees for natural, lifelike images. This color correction system enables free color control in two different modes. The Point Color Correction mode lets you pick a point in the image and adjust that color without affecting the neighboring colors. The Six Color Correction mode enables independent adjustment of red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow. Installation Flexibility and Ease of Use 2x Optical Zoom Lens and Wide Lens Shift Range VIERA Link for Easy Operation The 2x optical zoom lens provides a wide throw range, and the image can be shifted ±65% vertically and ±26% horizontally. This outstanding level of setup flexibility lets you enjoy large-screen viewing in different-sized rooms. Position it on a table in front of you, suspend it from the ceiling, or place it on a bookshelf behind you. The PT-AR100 supports VIERA Link. If your home theater system contains VIERA Link-ready equipment, projection can be started by using only the remote control unit of the PT-AR100, regardless of whether the source is a Blu-ray Disc or a TV program stored on an HD recorder. This eliminates the need for hassling with several remote controls.*5 Abundant Connection Terminals • HDMI™ with x.v.Color™ and Deep Color The PT-AR100 has two HDMI input terminals for digital transmission without image degradation. The HDMI input terminals also support Deep Color and the x.v.Color color space of the 1.3 standard. Deep Color provides 10-bit (over 1.07 billion) and 12-bit (over 68.7 billion) color depths for smooth gradation between colors, while x.v.Color compliance reproduces natural, lifelike images.*4 • Programmable 12V Trigger for Automated Theater Setup Two 12V triggers are provided. Since the input and output can be set independently (menu selectable), they can link flexibly with powered screens, room lights and powered curtains. *1 Parameters for adjusting the output brightness gradation level according to the input signal. *2 A setting that supports the 6,500K color temperature recommended in the HDTV standard (ITU-R BT.709) *3 Specifications put forth by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers Function Button for Instant Recall A frequently used function can be assigned to the Function button located on the remote for instant recall. Eco Management Functions A number of functions are provided to reduce power consumption.
