LCD Projector PT-VW431D

High Brightness and Abundant Features

A Highly Bright Portable with 4,300 lm

The PT-VW431D ranks high in the portable projector category with its high brightness of 4,300 lm.
It also incorporates a variable iris that produces a high contrast of 3,500:1.
This all combines to provide brighter, sharper projection for versatile situations.

The Daylight View Basic Function Ensures Clear Images Even in Brightly Lit Rooms

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.

A Maximum 4,000-Hour* Lamp Replacement Cycle and 4,000-Hour** Air Filter Replacement Cycle

The PT-VW431D has a maximum lamp replacement cycle of 4,000 hours.*
The air filters also have a replacement cycle of 4,000 hours.**
This reduces maintenance hassles for long periods of use, and helps to lower maintenance costs and reduce environmental impact.

*This is the maximum value when the lamp power is set to Eco, with the lamp turned on for
2 hours and off for 0.25 hour. Increases in the lamp on cycle or extended use with the lamp continuously turned on will shorten the lamp replacement cycle. When the lamp power is set to Normal, the lamp replacement cycle is 2,500 hours. The usage environment affects the
lamp replacement cycle.
**The lamp power: Eco. The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.

Quiet 29-dB* Design Does Not Interrupt Meetings or Classes

The quiet design keeps noise levels down to 29 dB,* so the sound of the cooling fan is hardly noticeable.
This helps the audience to keep their attention on the speech when someone is giving a presentation or on the
screen images during quiet scenes.

* With the lamp power set to Eco.

Environmentally Friendly Standby Power Consumption of only 0.3 W*

When Standby mode is set to Eco, the standby power consumption is low at 0.3 W.*
This lowers running costs, and helps to reduce environment impact.

* Standby mode: Eco. When Standby mode is set to Eco, network functions such as standby on via LAN are not available.
Also, only certain commands can be received for external control using the serial terminal.

1.6x Zoom Lens Allows Flexible Installation

When projecting onto a 100-inch wide screen,
the 1.6x zoom lens lets the PT-VW431D support
a wide range of projection distances,
from 2.5 to 4.1 meters (8.2 to 13.5 feet).

Lens Shift Moves the Image Vertically Without Distortion

The PT-VW431D features the Lens Shift function
in the vertical direction.
It moves the image position vertically without distorting it.

A Wide Variety of Functions for Easy Setup

Auto Input Signal Search

The Auto Input Signal Search function automatically detects the input signal and selects the input channel based on the signal. This function lets you start a presentation without any complicated setup required.

Input Guidance Function

If the input signal cannot be detected, the Input Guidance function will display connection instructions on the projector screen, for easy setup.

Real-Time Keystone Correction

With Real-Time Keystone Correction, the projector automatically senses if you adjust its angle (in the vertical direction) during operation and instantly makes whatever keystone correction is necessary for optimal viewing.

Color-board and Blackboard modes

Color-board and Blackboard modes adjust the colors to provide high-quality projection possible in rooms that don’t have a screen.

10-Watt Speakers and a Microphone Input Enables Audio Playback Directly from the Projector

The PT-VW431D features high-output 10-watt speaker that produces a high sound volume without requiring external speakers. This portable projector also features a microphone input terminal that allows microphone sounds to be output from the projector. These features make presentations even more effective.

HDMI Input Terminal and Abundant Interfaces

Extensive interfaces include an HDMI input terminal, 2 sets of computer (RGB) input terminals, a wired LAN terminal that can be used for DIGITAL LINK, and a serial (RS-232C) terminal for external control. These features support a wide range of system architectures for portable or ceiling-mounted use.

Easy Remote Monitoring and Control over a LAN

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.

Crestron Connected™

The LAN terminal allows a computer connected to the network to use Crestron Connected™ application software to manage and control system devices.

Easy Lamp and Air Filter Replacement Simplifies Maintenance

For easier maintenance, you can replace the lamp from the top and the air filter from the side and the back, even after the projector is installed on the ceiling. This eliminates the need to detach the projector from its mounting bracket in ceiling-mounted applications.
