• 2,800 lumens of high brightness and superb picture quality let you enjoy vivid, clear and stunning video content.
• Light Harmonizer 3 automatically adjusts images to match the surrounding conditions.
• 2x optical zoom/focus and horizontal/vertical lens shift ensure installation flexibility.
The PT-AR100 projector produces bright, sharp images by employing a new, high-power 280-W Red-Rich Lamp and optical unit that combine to generate 2,800 lm of brightness for comfortable viewing in various lighting conditions.
This intelligent iris system works by analyzing the brightness level of each image using a histogram, then adjusting the lamp power, iris and gamma curve* accordingly to create the ideal image. The adjustments are made virtually frame by frame. This achieves an astounding contrast ratio of 50,000:1, providing a wide dynamic range with swift smoothness for added beauty in both dark and bright scenes.

This digital image processing circuit brings greater clarity and sharpness to details, by reproducing fine nuances that were lost due to image compression. After a two dimensional analysis of the video signal’s frequency in each scene, the new circuit optimizes the sharpness of each image portion based on the extracted information. The resulting images have a more natural, lifelike expression than those of previous image-processing methods. The detection of super-high-frequency image components also enables more faithful reproduction of highly detailed information, such as the film grain in movies. The effect can be adjusted in eight steps from 0 to +7.
The 2x optical zoom lens provides a wide throw range, and the image can be shifted ±65% vertically and ±26% horizontally. This outstanding level of setup flexibility lets you enjoy large-screen viewing in different-sized rooms. Position it on a table in front of you, suspend it from the ceiling, or place it on a bookshelf behind you.
