LCD Panels Driven at 480Hz and Original Overdrive Technology for Clear 3D Image

Although it is inherently difficult to attain brightness in 3D images while minimizing crosstalk, the PT-AE7000/AT5000 achieves both bright and comfortable 3D images by the incorporation of 480-Hz driven LCD panels and Panasonic's original high-precision overdrive technology. The 480-Hz driven LCD panels lengthen the time that the shutter is open about 1.5 times the duration of a 240-Hz drive system. Together with the original overdrive technology, this improves the brightness of the images viewed through 3D Eyewear, while at the same time minimizing crosstalk, or double image seen as a result of the left image entering the right eye and vice versa.

・Brightness:
Insufficient brightness.

・Crosstalk:
Crosstalk results from mixing right and left images. To suppress crosstalk, shutter is closed longer and brightness is lost.

Bright but uncomfortable 3D image

・Brightness:
Images are brightened by increasing the time that the 3D Eyewear shutter is open.

・Crosstalk:
Mixed R and L images are seen, resulting in crosstalk.

Bright and comfortable 3D image

・Brightness:
Images are brightened by increasing the time that the 3D Eyewear shutter is open.

・Crosstalk:
Images are smooth, with little crosstalk, because of the faster driven LCD panels.

Newly Developed Dual Core Processing Engine

High-quality 2D image processing, including Frame Creation and Detail Clarity Processor, can now be enjoyed in 3D as well, with the incorporation of the newly developed dual core processing engine.

This engine, which is centered around a 3D CiW1 chip, conducts high-speed, high-precision signal processing, producing high-grade 3D images.

Frame Creation 2 for Motion Blur Reduction in 3D/2D Viewing

A double-speed frame interpolation display for 2D viewing, and also in 3D viewing, 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 3 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.

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. Furthermore, the 3D Viewing Monitor makes sure the field of depth is within the comfortable zone by a graphical representation and make adjustments accordingly.

* Projection size for 2D images covers from 40 inches to 300 inches diagonally.

3D Viewing Monitor

The white lines of the 3D Viewing Monitor indicate the comfort level of parallax set forth by the 3D Consortium Committee. By making sure the parallax is within the white lines, comfortable 3D is realized. Amount of parallax can be adjusted if necessary.

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.

Waveform Monitor

The left and right picture balance sometimes varies due to differences in the camera's shooting conditions for the left and right images.
The Waveform Monitor lets you adjust this balance.

2D-3D Conversion

2D to 3D image conversion is possible, with five 3D effect modes to select from.

Precisely Tuned 3D Projection with Optional Panasonic VIERA 3D Eyewear

The PT-AE7000/AT5000 uses frame sequential technology for 3D image projection. When viewing 3D content, signals from the PT-AE7000/AT5000’s built-in infrared transmitter precisely control the left and right shutters of the active 3D eyewear, which can be shared with VIERA 3D TVs.

Built-in 3D Infrared Transmitter

The PT-AE7000/AT5000 comes equipped with a built-in transmitter with maximum transmission distance of six meters (about 20 feet).* For more range up to ten meters (about 33 feet), an optional infrared transmitter, ET-TRM110 is
available for greater installation flexibility.

* The indicated distance between the projector and screen is valid when the conditions described below are satisfied. Also, note that the transmission distance can differ largely due to strong light, such as sunlight and fluorescent lamps, at the installation location or due to the screen type or material.
CONDITION 1: The distance between the screen and the 3D Eyewear (viewing position) is 5 meters to the front of the screen. CONDITION 2: The screen is 100 inches, measured diagonally, and has a screen gain of 1. CONDITION 3: The projector is set up in front of the screen, and the lens shift function is not used. CONDITION 4: The [3D IR TRANSMITTER] setting in the main unit is set to [STRONG].
