Highlights include deeper reds, strong contrast ratio, and 3D technology that assists in eliminating crosstalk.
The newest projector from Panasonic is a big one for them. It marks the company's first entry to the HD 3D projector space and it seems to be a grand entrance indeed. The PT-AE7000U offers features like a 200-watt Red-Rich lamp that increases the luminance of red colors for a richer final picture.
It also boasts Overdrive Technology for its frame sequential 3D. This, combined with a 480Hz LCD panel helps to reduce 3D crosstalk. The PT-AE7000U's video processor can boost the look of 3D images as well as 2D and the projector can even convert 2D images to 3D.
What may come as a surprise is that the PT-AE7000U uses active 3D technology. That means you'll have to hand over a hundred bucks or so for every pair of glasses you want.
The projector will be available in September at a price of $3,499.
