Panasonic has unveiled its first line of projectors developed in collaboration with Sanyo.

The new projectors are the result of an integration of technologies by both companies and are part of Panasonic’s efforts to expand its reach in the projector market.

The first in the new line-up is the PT-EX16KU projector. Featuring a powerful 16,000 lumens with XGA resolution, this model is designed for large venues where high levels of brightness are needed. It is equipped with quad lamp technology and, thanks to its unique light filtering technology, delivers high colour purity for vivid images.

Other features include Panasonic’s Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software, which allows seamless remote operation along with other projectors.

As part of its working relationship with Sanyo, Panasonic has also introduced a line of portable and eco-friendly projectors.

The PT-VW330 Series is available in three different models: PT-VX400NTU (4,000 lumens, XGA resolution, wired/wireless network ready); the PT-VX400U (4,000 lumens, XGA resolution) and the PT-VW330U (3,000 lumens, WXGA resolution).

While delivering high brightness, these projectors have been built with an intelligent lamp drive mechanism that cuts back on power consumption, making them cheaper to run and more environmentally friendly.

They also all have an Easy Setting feature that allows for automatic keystone correction and a 1.6x zoom lens.
