The Panasonic PT-AE3000U uses a fully HD-optimized lens unit comprising 16 elements in 12 groups to produce images that are distortion free and stunningly beautiful. The lens is the heart of the system but only part of what creates those beautiful images. A fifth generation dynamic iris analyzes every image to create the exact level of light required. And it saves power too.
Of course the PT-AE3000U does 3:2 pulldown and is 24p compatible to put motion pictures in their best light. Action scenes are smoother with fewer motion artifacts thanks to the double speed (100 Hz or 120 Hz) refresh rate. The projector interpolates new frames based on the action in the existing adjacent frames.
However, this projector can be used for more than watching Blu-ray Discs and DVDs or playing video games. No matter where in the world you are, chances are you can feed the PT-AE3000U a television signal it can digest. (You’ll need a separate TV set or tuner.) This projector is compatible with NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, PAL 60 and SECAM. If you switch between watching movies and TV often you’ll appreciate the Lens Memory feature. It can recall the settings for watching a DVD of a TV show in the 4:3 ratio and the 2.35 ratio of a widescreen Blu-ray Disc.
