The Panasonic PT AE4000 HD Ready Projector is the next stage in the evolution of its award winning predecessor, the Panasonic PT-AE3000 that was widely praised by the home cinema community for its Hollywood tuned high picture quality. Home theatre enthusiasts can now benefit from a 2.35:1 wide aspect screen, eliminating the Cinemascope issue and bringing the original picture quality intended by film and TV directors to the domestic market. Unique to Panasonic, the new Lens Memory 2, memorises up to six different zoom/focus positions and automatic switching between 16:9 and 2.35:1 contents can be set due to the Panasonic PT AE4000 Projector's new signal aspect detection capability.

The incorporation of the new Red-Rich Lamp increases the luminance efficiency of the projector, to achieve 150% brighter Cinema Picture modes compared to its predecessor, the PT-AE3000. Prior to the development of the Red-Rich Lamp, much brightness was lost to attain the desired colour purity/balance for the rich colour reproduction of Cinema Picture modes due to the lack of red luminance. The newly engineered lamp successfully adds red luminance, and enables the projector to produce brighter images with excellent colours. With the ability to produce a stunning brightness of 1,600 lumens, the Panasonic PTAE4000 HD Ready Projector unleashes the beauty of full-HD expression for viewing on various screen sizes.

The new projector comes equipped with Panasonics new optical system and delivers 1080p (1,920 x 1,080 pixel) images with remarkable clarity, 1,600 lumen brightness, 100,000:1 contrast ratio and 100Hz Intelligent Frame Creation blur reduction technology.

The Pure Contrast Plate in the Panasonic PT-AE4000 HD Ready Projector uses a newly engineered crystalline material that is carefully matched to the characteristics of the LCD panels to effectively correct the passage of light exiting the panels. This enables the projector to block unwanted light leakage and successfully increases the dynamic range. It works together with the dynamic iris to achieve an astounding contrast ratio of 100,000:1.

The new LCD projector also comes equipped with a host of professional-level features that let the user fine tune the image quality to best fit the viewing environment. These include the Advanced Gamma Adjustment, which allows the user to freely control the output and input level of the gamma curve. The Panasonic PTAE4000 Projector's Waveform Monitor, measures the level of brightness from a given video signal source and quickly makes adjustments to optimise it to the specific home theatre set-up. Having three HDMI (deep colour and x.v. colour) inputs as opposed to the typical two found on other similarly priced projectors; the Panasonic PT-AE4000 HD Ready Projector allows users to connect multiple HD sources without a HDMI switcher.

The fifth generation intelligent iris system works by analyzing the brightness level of each image using a histogram, then adjusting the lamp power, iris and gamma curve accordingly to create the ideal image. The adjustments are made virtually frame by frame. This helps the projector achieve a wide dynamic range with swift smoothness for added beauty in both dark and bright scenes.

Initial setup and installation are quick and simple, as the projector's lens shift capability enables 100 percent vertical adjustment and 40 percent horizontal adjustment so that viewers can suspend the projector either close to the ceiling or on wall mounts. The lens-centred design and maintenance features such as the replaceable side filter and top lamp, make the projector easy to install and maintain.
