PT-AE8000/AT6000

A New Level of 3D Experience PT-AE8000/AT6000 2,400 lm Full HD

Customization and Installation Flexibility

Intelligent Lens Memory with Auto Detection*

Up to six settings 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 settings can be manually recalled or set for automatic switching. The projector is able to detect 2.35:1 and 16:9 sources and retrieve the stored settings automatically.

The new Lens Memory function also supports 3D viewing. For 3D viewing, the settings can be manually recalled.

The Lens Memory function lets you easily view images with different image ratios on a wide 2.35:1 screen for an immersive, theater-like experience.

* In 3D viewing, the Lens Memory settings can only be manually recalled.

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 3.6 meters (11 feet 10 inches) to the screen or as far as 7.2 meters (23 feet 7 inches) 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.

Waveform Monitor for Precise Calibration

With the PT-AE8000/AT6000 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

HDMI™ with x.v.Color™ and Deep Color

The PT-AE8000/AT6000 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.*

* Effective in Rec. 709 image mode.

Programmable 12V Trigger for Automated Theater Setup

Two 12V triggers are provided.* Since the input and output can be set independently (menu selectable), they can link flexibly with powered screens, room light and powered curtains. When combined with the Lens Memory, they let you create a truly classy home theater.

* The trigger terminals also operate as the 3D shutter outputs to connect the optional 3D IR transmitter ET-TRM110.

VIERA Link for Easy Operation

The PT-AE8000/AT6000 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/AT6000, 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.*

* Cannot be used simultaneously with TV that supports VIERA Link. Some operations may not be available depending on the equipment. In this case, use its own remote control to operate the equipment.

Up to 5,000-Hour Lamp Replacement Cycle* and Simple Maintenance

Panasonic’s proprietary lamp drive system helps maintain lamp performance, resulting in a up to 5,000-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/AT6000 is installed on the ceiling.

* When a lamp power is set to ECO. The lamp replacement cycle is up to 4,000 hours when the lamp mode is set to NORMAL. The values above are maximum values when they are used in cycles of being turned on for 2 hours and off for 0.25 hours. When the lamps are turned on and off more frequently, the lamp replacement cycle is shortened. The usage environment affects the lamp replacement cycle.
