Digital Link - The Single Cable Solution:
In response to the growing demand for longer-distance, high-quality signal transmission, Panasonic offers the PT-VW431D, a high-brightness LCD projector with DIGITAL LINK compatibility.
Equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, the PT-VW431D allows transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 100 meters (328 feet) through a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations.
Used together with the new ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box, or other compatible equipment
, the installation of this projector is easier than ever, without any need for external receivers. The input signal can also be easily switched (Input selection from the control panel or remote control of the projector is possible only when the PT-VW431D and ET-YFB100G are used together.) from control panel or remote control of the projector to enable attractive presentations or lessons using multimedia content.
Panasonic’s Daylight View Basic technology achieves sharp, easy-to-see images by clearly reproducing the details in dark image areas, which were previously difficult to see in brightly lit rooms. A built-in sensor measures the ambient light, and the Daylight View Basic function adjusts the halftone color and brightness level according to the surrounding illumination.
When projecting onto a 100-inch wide screen,the 1.6x zoom lens lets the PT-VW431D supporta wide range of projection distances,from 2.5 to 4.1 meters (8.2 to 13.5 feet).
The PT-VW431D features the Lens Shift functionin the vertical direction.It moves the image position vertically without distorting it.Web browser on a computer connected through a wired LAN system lets you remotely operate projectors and check their status. An e-mail messaging function can also notify you when a lamp needs replacement, and indicate the overall projector status.
In addition, Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software is available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic projectors from a single PC.
The wired LAN terminal is compatible with PJLink (class1), an open protocol that is used by many manufacturers, to enable integrated control of systems that contain different brands of projectors.
