The PT-DW7000U-K is suitable for a wide variety of applications -- from boardrooms, conference rooms, post-production, and broadcasting to premium home theaters. Featuring Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing and unique wide-aspect (1366 x 768) panels, the PT-DW7000U-K delivers outstanding 6000-lumen brightness and up to 4000:1 contrast ratio.
Panasonic Projector Systems Company PT-DW7000U-K
WXGA Native Resolution Large Venue DLP Projector
The World’s Lightest 3-Chip Large-Venue DLP™-Based Projector
The PT-DW7000U series combines the latest 3-chip system based on DLP™ technology with a new optical system developed using our
exclusive technology. We have dramatically reduced the cabinet size, creating a unit with only one-fifth the volume of conventional large venue 3-chip DLP™-based projectors. This feat
of design and technology achieved the world’s lightest* WXGA 3-chip projector with DLP™ technology. With a weight of 48.5 pounds (22.0 kg), the PT-DW7000U/U-K can go places other bulky 3-chip projectors with DLP™ technology have never gone before.

Native 16:9 Panels
The PT-DW7000 is the world’s first 3-chip DLP™ installation projector with 16:9 wide aspect panels. Unique to Panasonic, these panels let the PT-DW7000U/U-K project wide-screen images without sacrificing the superior image quality provided by DLP™ technology. They also fit more information onto a PC screen.
Image Quality from 3-Chip DLP™ Technology
DLP™ technology delivers outstanding image resolution. In 3-chip
systems with DLP™ technology— considered among the world’s most advanced projector engines—a Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) chip is allocated to each of the red, green, and blue signals. This gives systems with DLP™ technology superior light utilization for high brightness, digital processing for low
noise and linear white balance, extended device life for minimal image degradation, and a quick response that eliminates afterimages.
Powerful 6,000 Lumens
In addition to the 300-watt UHM™ lamp, the PT-DW7000U series incorporates digital and optical technologies that maximize the DLP™ technology advantages. They deliver 6,000 lumens of brightness, offering superior color reproducibility.
Astounding 4,000:1 Contrast Ratio with Dynamic Iris
Panasonic’s original Dynamic Iris achieves a dramatically improved contrast ratio of 4,000:1 in the PT-DW7000U series. Dynamic Iris constantly monitors the input signal, and adjusts the intensity of the light source to match it. This highly advanced function provides highspeed, linear response to changing images with 256-step precision. It also combines with dynamic gamma control to produce deep, rich blacks while preserving the brightness in the lighter portions of dark scenes. The resulting images are bright and vivid, comparable to direct-view TVs and computer monitors.
16-Bit Color Depth for Film-Like Natural Image
Applying 16-bit drive to each of the RGB panels produces 8 times the level of expression (a total of 24 times for all three RGB panels) of conventional 13-bit drive devices. This system creates extremely smooth tonal expression with approx. 65,000 shades of gradation.
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. It is also compatible with the high-definition 1080i format.
Dynamic Sharpness Control
The Dynamic Sharpness Control circuit adjusts the video signal waveforms based on the difference in the brightness of adjacent pixels for a sharp, clear picture that is relatively unaffected by signal noise.
In systems with DLP™ technology, the microscopic mirrors of the DMD chip turn the light on and off. During the off period, light is directed away from the lens. Handling the heat from this light is a major point in maintaining the long-term performance of projectors with DLP™ technology. Panasonic’s newly developed liquidcooling system extends projector performance and attains a high level of reliability.
Dustproof Design with Sealed Optical Block
We have minimized the effect of dust by completely sealing the optical block. This dust-free design helps ensure that 3-chip projectors with DLP™ technology will continue to deliver crisp, sharp, high-resolution images over an extended service life.
Dual Lamp System and Lamp Relay Function
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). In single lamp operation mode, the lamp relay function greatly extends continuous operating time.
Optional Long-Life Lamp
A long-life lamp that stretches lamp life to 4,000 hours is available as an option. In single lamp operation mode, the lamp lamp relay function allows non-stop operation 24 hours a day for up to 47 weeks without replacing the lamps. The use of UHM™ lamps dramatically cuts operating costs.
Easy Lamp Replacement
The PT-DW7000U series is designed to allow easy lamp replacement with the projector in its fully mounted condition. The lamp itself is the only part that needs to be replaced, which further increases overall reliability.
Dust Filter Cleaning
The dust filter is easy to clean, and you don’t have to make any changes in the projector’s mounting condition. This helps to minimize user down time.
