    ThePT-AE8000U Full HD 3D Home Theater ProjectorfromPanasonicoffers 2400 lumens of brightness with a 500,000:1 contrast ratio. It comes equipped with a 220W red-rich lamp for increased red intensity, which enables the projector to produce bright images as well as remarkable color reproduction. The PT-AE8000U generates deeper blacks by incorporating Panasonic's Pure Contrast Plates, which match the LCD panel characteristics, virtually eliminating light leakage.

    The PT-AE8000U delivers a 1080p video experience that ultimately provides excellent picture quality in 2D, as well as advanced 3D features that delivers a natural and comfortable movie theater experience at home.

    The PT-AE8000U is also equipped with three HDMI input terminals, which support DeepColor and x.v. Color, and two 12V triggers for home theater automation, such as lighting and a motorized screen.

    High 2400 Lumens of Brightness with the Advanced Red-Rich Lamp
    The 220W red-rich lamp increases the luminous efficiency of the projector to achieve brighter images, even in 3D viewing, with excellent color purity. Able to produce a stunning brightness of 2400 lumens, the PT-AE8000 unleashes the beauty of 2D/3D full-HD expression for viewing on various screen sizes. Cooling efficiency for example around the polarization filters has been increased to realize the higher lumens. Color purity is further increased by applying a special coating to the red and green condenser lenses in order to trim the impurities from the light after it is separated into the three primary colors
    Full-HD Optimized Optical System
    To assure maximum clarity and sharpness in full-HD images, this advanced optical system employs a full-HD-optimized lens unit comprising of 16 lens elements in 12 groups, including two large-diameter aspherical lenses and two high-performance ED (extra-low dispersion) lenses. Each lens is carefully aligned to assure a uniform focusing balance from the center to the edges of the screen. As a result, the PT-AE8000 produces stunningly clear and beautiful images
    3D Motion Remaster Delivers Correct, Natural 3D Movement
    This technology solves the problem caused by a phenomenon called the Mach-Dvorak effect, which occurs in many systems during 3D viewing. The active shutter 3D system displays left-eye and right-eye images alternately. This means that left-eye and right-eye images that were captured at the same instant are shown with a time lag. During this time lag, especially when watching a scene in which an object moves quickly and horizontally across the screen, the viewer's brain automatically speculates and forms an image at a position that differs from the actual shown image. This results in incorrect depth perception and makes the horizontal movement appear unnatural. 3D Motion Remaster technology achieves smoothly moving 3D images by creating properly positioned images to compensate for the time lag
    Up to 480 Hz Compatible LCD Panels
    The PT-AE8000's full-HD LCD panels provide bright images with high aperture ratio. The panels are also designed for 480 Hz processing capability for bright 3D images. These high-precision panels use vertically aligned liquid crystal molecules with inorganic alignment layers. When no voltage is applied, the molecules are aligned perpendicular to the glass substrate, so there is minimal light leakage, providing higher contrast
    2x Optical Power Zoom / Focus and Wide Lens Shift Range
    A 2x optical power zoom / focus lens and a lens shift function together make it possible to project a 120-inch picture from as close as 11.8' (3.6 m) to the screen or as far as 23.6' (7.2 m) away. In addition, the image can be shifted 100% vertically, and 26% horizontally. This gives you outstanding setup flexibility. If you choose to ceiling mount the projector, you can zoom and focus by remote control
    Pure Contrast Plates Deliver High 500,000:1 Contrast Ratio
    The pure contrast plates in the PT-AE8000 use a high-precision 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 Pure Color Filter Pro and Dynamic Iris Pro to achieve an astounding contrast ratio of 500,000:1
    Pure Color Filter Pro for Rich, Vibrant Colors
    The optical filter optimizes the light spectrum from the UHM projector lamp, helping to produce deeper blacks while improving purity levels in the three primary colors (red, green and blue). This advanced filter system improves color purity to cover a range that extends from the HDTV standard (Rec. 709 mode) to the color gamut used in digital cinema. This gives images the deep, rich coloring that distinguishes movie images
    Dynamic Iris Pro Adds Beauty to Both Dark and Bright Scenes
    This 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
    Smooth Screen Technology Creates Film-Like Texture
    While many LCD projectors suffer from a chicken wire effect, Panasonic's pursuit of the highest possible image quality has successfully overcome this device limitation through the incorporation of smooth screen technology. This uses the double refraction property of crystals to arrange pixels on a screen with no gaps between them
    Dual Core Processing Engine
    High-quality 2D image processing, including Frame Creation and Detail Clarity Processor, can be enjoyed in 3D as well, with the incorporation of the high-performance dual core processing engine
    Frame Creation 2 for Motion Blur Reduction in 3D/2D Viewing
    A double-speed frame interpolation display for both 2D and 3D viewing, even during 2D-3D conversion, greatly improves the clarity of motion images, reproducing sharp and clear images for fast moving scenes in sports and action movies. For 24p signal input, four frames are calculated and interpolated for each existing frame, to enable 5x speed (120 Hz) display
    Detail Clarity Processor 4 Gives Natural Clarity to Even the Finest Details
    This digital image processing circuit brings greater clarity and sharpness to details embedded in the image. After analyzing the video signal frequency in each scene, the circuit optimizes the sharpness of each part of the image based on the extracted information. The resulting images, 3D or 2D, have more natural, lifelike expression than those of previous image-processing methods
    Lens Memory for 2D/3D Viewing
    Up to six settings, in 2D or 3D viewing, can be stored in the lens memory, including zoom and focus positions for projecting in the normal 16:9 or 4:3 image ratio, and wide cinema projection settings. These memories can be recalled manually for 2D or 3D, or can be set for automatic switching in 2D. The projector is able to detect 2.35:1 and 16:9 sources and retrieve the stored setting automatically. The lens memory function lets you easily enjoy images with different image ratios on a wide 2.35:1 screen for an immersive theater-like experience
    2D-3D Conversion
    2D to 3D image conversion is possible, with five 3D effect modes to select from
    Seven Picture Modes
    For each 2D and 3D viewing, seven different picture modes (normal, dynamic, Rec. 709, D-cinema, cinema 1, cinema 2 and game mode for reduced frame delay) are provided
    Advanced 3D Adjustment Functions
    A variety of 3D viewing adjustments also provide a more comfortable viewing experience at home. These include 3D lens memory, 3D zoom and focus, 3D color management, and 3D keystone correction
    3D Viewing Monitor for Adjustment of Depth-of-Field
    The projection size for viewing 3D images can be selected from among 9 different sizes, ranging from 40 inches to 200 inches diagonally. The amount of parallax is optimized according to the projection size so comfortable, easy-to-view 3D images can be enjoyed at any size. Either of three monitor styles can be selected
    3D Picture Balance with Waveform Monitor
    The projector is able to show the right and left image side by side to check if the two sides have the same colors. The difference may occur due to poor content quality. With the Waveform Monitor displayed, you can adjust the contrast, brightness, color and tint as desired, and up to three adjustment settings can be stored in memory for instant recall
    3D Viewing Monitor for Adjustment of Depth-of-Field
    The PT-AE8000 uses frame sequential technology for 3D image projection. When viewing 3D content, signals from the PT-AE8000's built-in infrared transmitter precisely control the left and right shutters of the active 3D eyewear. The built-in transmitter offers maximum transmission distance of 20' (6.1 m)). For more range up to 33' (10 m), an optional infrared transmitter, ET-TRM110 is available for greater installation flexibility
    Waveform Monitor for Precise Calibration
    With the PT-AE8000 you can view the waveforms on the screen and adjust the settings both automatically and manually as you prefer
    Advanced Gamma Adjustment Function
    The gamma curve can be flexibly controlled, allowing precise calibration according to the signal source and environment. Brightness (Y), R, G and B can each be adjusted at any fifteen points. Adjustment point positions can be shifted both horizontally and vertically to bring out the desired gradation level. Adjustment is easy because the small menu screen does not block the image
    Split Adjust Mode for Easy Picture Adjustment
    You can freeze any scene you wish, and then make adjustments while easily comparing the original image and the adjusted image side by side
    Cinema Color Management Premium Enables Flexible Color Control
    This color correction system enables free color control in two different modes. The point color correction mode lets you pick a point in the image and adjust that color without affecting the neighboring colors. The six color correction mode enables independent adjustment of red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow. Adjustment is possible for either 2D or 3D viewing
    Abundant Connection Terminals
    The PT-AE8000 has three HDMI input terminals for digital transmission without image degradation. The HDMI input terminals also support Deep Color and the x.v.Color color space. Deep Color provides 10-bit (over 1.07 billion) and 12-bit (over 68.7 billion) color depths for smooth gradation between colors, while x.v.Color compliance reproduces natural, lifelike images
    12V Triggers
    Two 12V triggers are provided. Since the input and output can be set independently (menu selectable), they can link flexibly with powered screens, room lights and powered curtains. Combined with the lens and memory, they let you create a truly classy home theater
    VIERA Link for Easy Operation
    The PT-AE8000 supports VIERA Link. If your home theater system contains VIERA Link-ready equipment, projection can be started by using only the remote control unit of the PT-AE8000, regardless of whether the source is a Blu-ray disc or a TV program stored on an HD recorder. This eliminates the need for hassling with several remote controls
    Up to 5000-Hour Lamp Replacement Cycle and Simple Maintenance
    Panasonic's proprietary lamp drive system helps maintain lamp performance, resulting in an up to 5000-hour lamp replacement cycle. For easy maintenance, you can replace the filter from the side and the lamp from the top of the projector. The dust filter and lamp are easily replaced even after the PT-AE8000 is installed on the ceiling
