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** from control panel or remote control of the projector to enable attractive presentations or lessons using multimedia content.

For tested compatible models, refer to the “Tested Compatible Equipment” page.
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.
