Panasonic Announces a New Home Theater Projector

Posted Wed Sep 7, 2011 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The company boasts a 50,000:1 contrast ratio and 2,800 lumens brightness.

Panasonic's new PT-AR100U isn't going to blow your mind with fancy high-end features. There's plenty to it of course, but it's not one of those $50,000 projectors we've been seeing announced pre CEDIA.

The PT-AR100U, which comes in at an MSRP of $1,999, offers a Red Rich lamp that adds color and is bright enough to work well with different levels of ambient light. Dynamic Iris Pro and Pure Color Filter Pro make sure that you're getting the most accurate picture possible and the Detail Clarity Processor 3 that's built in will help to add detail. You could have guessed that last bit.

Panasonic says that their new projector is nice and energy efficient, reducing power consumption when possible and cutting it to less than a tenth of a watt in standby mode.

You'll be able to pick up a PT-AR100U of your own when it launches next month.
