Further Expanding Reliability and Picture Quality
Panasonic's DLP® system projectors have taken another step forward with the widescreen PT-DW5100UL. Now they produce even better images while maintaining all of their highly reliable functions. Their 5,500 lumens brightness delivers crisp, easy-to-see images even in brightly lit classrooms and meeting rooms, to make presentations easier to understand. The PT-DW5100UL can also project widescreen images onto a large area regardless of ceiling height.
High Brightness and High Picture Quality
Widescreen and High-Power 5500 Lumens Brightness
The PT-DW5100UL offers a full 5,500 lumens of brightness and WXGA widescreen projection. A newly developed AC lamp and a more efficient reflector and synthetic mirror produce crisp, sharp images even when projecting images with a wide aspect ratio in ordinary daytime lighting.
Full 10-bit Picture Processing
The use of a full 10-bit image processing system provides smooth tonal expression. For example, skin tones appear natural and true to life.
Progressive Cinema Scan (3/2 Pulldown)
This interlace/progressive conversion technology automatically detects when the input signal is derived from filmed material and selects the optimum progressive processing method to assure faithful reproduction of the original image.
System Daylight View
The system daylight view function uses an image processing circuit to compensate for the loss of color saturation that occurs when light reflects onto the screen from bright surroundings. It is especially effective for producing crisp, sharp images in dark portions containing gradation. The function can be adjusted in three steps.
Vivid Color Control
A unique control technology is used to maximize the color segment areas of the color wheel. Compared to conventional projectors, the brightness of each color is increased by an average of about 15%. This results in sharper, clearer color reproduction.
New IP Conversion Circuit
The PT-DW5100UL features a new IP conversion circuit that produces more detailed images than our previous models.
3D Color Management System
Compensation provides optimal levels of color saturation, hue, and brightness that were not possible with conventional projectors. Colors approach those of the original image, even on large-screen displays.
More Effective Noise Reduction
Images are noticeably clearer, thanks to higher performance frame noise reduction, which lowers image graininess, and improved MPEG noise reduction, which suppresses the block noise and mosquito noise that are common in fast-action scenes.
Dynamic Sharpness Control
The dynamic sharpness control circuit adjusts the video signal waveforms based on the difference in brightness of adjacent pixels for a sharp, clear picture that is relatively unaffected by signal noise.
Dual Lamp System
The use of two lamp systems increases brightness and eliminates the need to interrupt a presentation if a lamp burns out (in dual lamp operation mode).
Newly developed AC lamps with full 300 watts of power offer excellent brightness and greater reliability than other types. A new lamp drive system also lowers the stress on the lamp electrodes while the lamps are lit. The new lamps have a lifetime of approximately 3,000 hours (with low lamp mode), which is reassuring for applications where the projector is frequently used. The AC lamps also minimize color irregularities.
Panasonic's original liquid-cooling system directly cools the DLP® chip, which extends PT-DW5100UL performance and attains a high level of reliability. It also enables operation in temperatures up to 113 ˚F/45˚C for use in a wider variety of environments, and maintains a more stable performance even in harsh conditions while keeping the operating sound down to a quiet 29 dB (with low lamp mode).
Micro Cut Filter
A filter in the air intake section traps dust particles that are 10 microns (lint, pollen, etc.) or larger. By capturing approximately 7 times as much dust as conventional filters, it guards against optical blocks and reduces the penetration of dust into to the interior to provide stable operation by, for example, preventing drops in brightness.
Dustproof Design with Sealed Optical Block
The effect of dust has been minimized by completely sealing the optical block.The dust-free design helps ensure that this DLP® projector will continue to deliver crisp, sharp, high-resolution images over an extended service life.
Flexible System Installation
Built-In Multi-Screen Support System
- Edge Blending Function - This function controls luminance at the edges where screens overlap. By eliminating unnatural screen joints, it produces uniformly attractive
- Color Matching Function - The Color Matching function corrects the subtle variations in color reproduction between projectors. Originally developed "adjustment assist" software
quickly and precisely optimizes images, so the colors on each screen are uniformly reproduced.
- Digital Image Enlarging - Images are enlarged up to 10 times (horizontally and vertically) without having to use any additional devices.
A lens-centered, symmetrical design provides flexible system layout, eliminating the need for any special considerations when planning the installation site.
Horizontal/Vertical Lens Shift
A wide adjustment range of the horizontal/vertical lens shift assures distortion free images and adds convenience and versatility. (Horizontal: manual, Vertical: powered)
Optional Lenses for Various Venues
Five optional lenses with different throw distances are available in addition to the supplied lens. These powered zoom/focus lenses enable the projectors to perform superbly in an array of projection environments.
Web Browser Control/Monitoring and e-mail Message Alert
Anybody can operate the PT-DW5100UL by remote control or monitor its status over a LAN network, because it is all done using the computer’s familiar Web browser. Furthermore, the PT-DW5100U sends an E-mail message to notify the operator when an error has occurred, or a lamp needs to be replaced.
Control Panel and Wireless Remote Control
The rear control panel allows for easy operation when the PT-DW5100UL is set on a desk or floor. New wireless remote control with longer transmission capacity of 98 feet (30 m).
The PT-DW5100UL has an array of terminals-two RGB inputs including a 5-BNC connector, serial in/out, one S-video inputs, two remote in, one remote out, DVI-D and control capability-to support a broad range of projection needs HDCP. (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) compliant. Using the serial terminal(RS232C),it is also possible to connect and operate AMX and Crestron control systems with ease.
The LAN terminals support PJLink™ class 1 connection. Control with the same specifications is also possible when used in a multi-projector system with projectors of another brand.
Easy Lens Replacement
The PT-DW5100UL uses the bayonet system, so lenses attach and detach with one-touch ease.
Mechanical Lens Shutter
A mechanical lens shutter minimizes annoying light leakage when the PT-DW5100UL is on standby or temporarily not in use, such as during a meeting.
Direct Power Off
Built-in capacitor provides power to cool the internal parts. This means that you can switch off the room's main power as soon as the presentation ends. PT-DW5100UL doesn't make you wait around and helps minimize lamp damage.
Flexible Angle Setting
The PT-DW5100UL can be rotated vertically. This means you can install it at any up-and-down angle you wish to accommodate different installation conditions.
Easy Replacement of Dust Filter and Lamp
Dust filter is replaced from the side and lamps are replaced from the back panel. Both of them are replaced very easily even
when PT-DW5100UL is installed.
