Panasonic Announces Its First Full HD 3D Home Theater Projector

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.
