Panasonic breaks the 4-pound barrier for 1,200 lumen projectors with its new 3.5-pound PT-LM1U SVGA LCD projector. The stylish, super-slim PT-LM1U offers an unmatched combination of weight, brightness and estimated street price.
The feature-packed, ultra-portable PT-LM1U delivers a brilliant 1,200 ANSI lumens of brightness and a bevy of time-saving and anti-theft functions–all at an estimated price of $999(a).
“The PT-LM1U has the ease-of-use, time-saving and theft deterrence features customers desire, plus it’s ultra light, bright and economically priced,” said Steve Abend, Director, Panasonic Broadcast’s Presentations Systems Group. “With its low cost of ownership, the PT-LM1U delivers superb value for cost-conscious professionals, from the mobile road warrior to small-to-mid size businesses, from corporate training and sales and marketing managers to the first-time user.”
Thanks to its high-performance optical system and high-efficiency 130 UHM lamp, the PT-LM1U produces high contrast (400:1 ratio) images at a crisp, sharp 800 x 600 native SVGA native resolution (while providing advanced resizing technology to support UXGA). The projector instantaneously adjusts lamp brightness to optimize on-screen imaging, and for darker scenes, it automatically lowers the brightness to produce deeper blacks and make light areas “pop out.”
For super quick set-up, the PT-LM1U has a multitude of intuitive plug-and-play functions including one-touch auto set-up with vertical and horizontal Digital Keystone Correction, Speed Start, Direct Power Off and Auto Power Off functions. The projector is outfitted with a host of anti-theft functions including a security lock, user password protection, control panel lock and text superimposing.
Tailor-made for users of notebook PCs and DVD devices, its HDTV compatibility ensures that the PT-LM1U can automatically resize 1080i and 720p images for 16:9 wide-aspect display; 480p, 480i and 576i component video signals and S-Video can also be displayed in either 4:3 or 16:9.
The PT-LM1U is available in December.
