Panasonic Projector Systems Company PT-FW100NTU
WXGA Native Widescreen Networkable Fixed Installation Digital Multimedia Projector
A Bright Choice for New Installations and Replacement Use
With outstanding flexibility, the PT-FW100NTU projector makes an ideal replacement for existing ceiling-mounted systems. It requires little maintenance after installation, so the total cost of ownership is low.
The PT-FW100NTU is a high-performance LCD projector designed for use in fixed installations. It combines Panasonic’s original Auto Rolling Filter with a new lamp drive system to deliver crisp, bright images over extended periods of time. It also offers outstanding installation flexibility, with 2x zoom lens, lens shift and wired/wireless LAN functions that accommodate everything from permanent ceiling-mounted use to simple placement on a shelf. Whether you’re looking to install a new system or considering a replacement, Panasonic answers the call for projectors that provide long-lasting brightness, simple maintenance, and easy, casual use even in fixed installations.
Advanced Technologies that Maintain High Brightness Over a Longer Service Life
Auto Rolling Filter (ARF) and Anti-Dust Design
A Micro Cut Filter, a high-efficiency electrostatic filter, with superior dust-collecting performance combines with Panasonic’s original Auto Rolling Filter and anti-dust design to minimize brightness loss due to dust accumulation. The Auto Rolling Filter automatically winds the used section into the casing so that a fresh section of filter is exposed. Thus, peak performance is maintained. In developing the anti-dust design, Panasonic totally re-engineered the airflow path, from intake to exhaust, to create a cabinet that hermetically seals off the projector interior. This design and the Auto Rolling Filter team up to keep the air inside the projector dust-free at all times.
The Micro Cut Filter traps dust particles that are 1 microns* or larger. By capturing approximately 7 times as much dust as our previous filters,it guards against optical blocks and reduces the penetration of dust into the interior to provide stable operation by preventing drops in brightness.
New Drive System for Optimal Lamp Performance
Lamps used in a projector require much higher precision than ordinary household lamps. Panasonic employs a number of new
technologies—including a new drive system—that help maintain optimal lamp performance for longer-lasting brightness.
Daylight View 3 Technology: Enhanced Perception of Brightness and Contrast*
The PT-FW100NTU features Panasonic’s Daylight View 3 technology, which uses an adaptive low-pass filter to optimize the dark parts of the image. This makes images seem brighter and higher in contrast, so they appear crisp, vivid and easy to see even
in brightly lit rooms. Daylight View 3 also includes a built-in ambient light sensor that automatically detects room brightness and adjusts operation accordingly.
* There is no actual change in the rated brightness or contrast ratio.
Wide 2x Zoom and Horizontal/Vertical Lens Shift Give You More Installation Flexibility
The PT-FW100NTU can project a 120-inch image (diagonal) from any distance between 11.8 feet (3.6 m) and 23.6 feet (7.2 m). In new installations, this lets you accommodate a wide range of room sizes and shapes. And when replacing existing projectors, the new 2x zoom greatly expands your installation flexibility.
Wired LAN: Web Browser Control/Monitoring, E-Mail Message Alert
Anybody can operate the PT-F100NTU 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 projector sends an e-mail message to notify the operator when an error has occurred, or a lamp needs to be replaced.
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.
Direct Power Off
Because the cooling fan keeps operating until the lamp is cooled, you can turn off the room’s main power without waiting for the projector to cool down.
Easy Lamp Replacement from the Rear
For easier maintenance, you can replace the lamp from the rear. The lamp is easily replaced even after the projector is installed on the ceiling.
Abundant Connection Terminals
Designed for versatility, the PT-FW100NTU comes equipped with a host of connection terminals. The RS232C specifications are the same as in previous Panasonic models, so replacement is quick and easy.
Easy-to-Use Remote Control with Laser Pointer
The supplied remote control features a number of wireless projection controls, including Microsoft® PowerPoint® page up/down capability. The control range and distance have been extended, and the buttons are now larger and easier to use.
Easy Wireless Projection from Multiple PCs
With the PT-FW100NTU’s wireless capability, you don’t need cables to connect a PC. That means it’s easy to bring in a laptop (with a wireless LAN function) and deliver a smooth, hassle-free presentation. You can make the settings for wireless connection quickly and easily using Wireless Manager ME 4.0 software. When the presentation is finished, Wireless Manager restores the PC to its previous LAN settings, so the PC is ready to reconnect to your LAN. Functions include Live mode and
Multi-Live mode. In Live mode, the image projected is identical to the image seen on the PC screen. In Multi-Live mode, you can wirelessly connect with multiple PCs.
A Wide Variety of Wireless Functions
The PT-FW100NTU provides a host of convenient wireless functions, including Wireless Prompter (Secondary Display Transmission), selective area transmission and a 16-window index style that lets you project images from up to 16 PCs at the same time. Wireless transmission is possible from one PC to a maximum of eight projectors at a time.
