The RGB Booster achieves high image quality with levels of color reproduction (up to 145% that of conventional models) and brightness that make each color stand out. It combines Panasonic&s proprietary Vivid Color Control technology with a newly engineered Lamp Modulation Drive System for a 1-chip DLPT projector that produces bright and vivid colors.
Vivid Color Control
This unique control technology optimizes the use of the color segment areas of the color wheel. It increases the brightness of each RGB color by minimizing the unallocated portions between the colors, to achieve truly vivid coloring.
Lamp Modulation Drive System
Conventionally, the lamp intensity was fixed, and the balance between colors was controlled by discarding excessive light. For example, the intensity of green had to be digitally cut back to match the lower light intensity of red. With the new lamp modulation technology, the projector is now able to control the lamp intensity for each of the red, green, blue, and white segments of the color wheel separately. Because the actual light output is controlled in relation to each color segment, light usage is optimized and color balance is obtained without lowering the brightness. This results in bright vivid images with increased color fidelity.
Our newly developed 300-watt AC lamps are used in the D6000S. The high-efficiency light convergence technology and independently developed color wheel work together to achieve the high brightness of 6,500 lm for the PT-D6000S. Clear, crisp images are reproduced even in bright rooms.
Exclusive to Panasonic, this image-processing circuit analyzes the video signal frequency range for each scene by extracting data on the distribution of high, mid, and low-frequency components, and brings out fine details accordingly. The resulting images have a more natural, three-dimensional appearance with crisp, clear detail.
Screen visibility is lower when a projector is used during daylight hours or in a room with lights on. This problem becomes more significant when images require increasing levels of detail expression. Panasonic&s System Daylight View 2 optimizes image quality to improve color perception of the projected image in bright rooms. Gamma curves and sharpness, in addition to conventional color correction are adjusted to bring a sense of sharpness to the entire screen and reproduce stunning images with life-like depth. This results in highly comfortable viewing even in bright lighting, and allows viewers to concentrate more easily on the images.
To increase visual impact, projector images are often viewed from a comparatively close position relative to the screen size. The characteristics of the human eye, however, tend to cause changes in colors when images are viewed close-up on a large screen. Changes in color saturation, hue, and brightness differ from color to color, and conventional projectors were not able to make the appropriate corrections. 3D Color Management makes these corrections to produce accurate colors that are very close to the original images even when viewed on a large screen.
This interlace/progressive conversion technology automatically detects when the input signal is derived from filmed material and selects the optimum progressive processing method to assure faithful reproduction of the original image.
The use of a full 10-bit image processing system provides smooth tonal expression. For example, skin tones appear natural and true to life.
The dynamic sharpness control circuit adjusts the video signal waveforms based on the difference in brightness of adjacent pixels for a sharp, clear picture that is relatively unaffected by signal noise.
The 2-Lamp System increases brightness and eliminates the need to interrupt a presentation if a lamp should burn out (in dual-lamp operation mode). The Lamp Relay mode also operates the lamps alternately to enable 24/7 projector operation.
Panasonic&s original liquid-cooling system directly cools the DLP™ chip, which extends the PT-D6000S projectors performance and attains a high level of reliability. It also enables operation in temperatures up to 45°C / 113°F for use in a wider variety of environments, and maintains a more stable performance even in harsh conditions while keeping the operating sound down.
Panasonic&s proprietary Auto Cleaning Filter (ACF) automatically exposes a clean filter surface when it senses that the filter is clogged. The ACF also brushes away dust that adheres to the filter, which helps prevent clogging that can impair operation or cause malfunction. This helps maintain the highly efficient electrostatic filter, the Micro Cut Filter&s superior dust-collecting performance. As a result, the filter does not need to be replaced for over 10,000 hours, greatly reducing the hassle of maintenance.
The dust resistant design of the optical block helps ensure that projectors with DLP™ technology will continue to deliver crisp, sharp, high-resolution images over an extended service life.
The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled. For example, the adjoining edges in a 2-screen system can be blended to create a smooth, seamless image.
When several units are used together, this function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors. The PC software assures easy, accurate control. Independent, 7-axis adjustment (red, green, blue, yellow, magenta, cyan, white) ensures high-precision colors and minimizes color variations.
The PT-DW6300S can project large, multi-screen images without any additional equipment. Up to 100 units (10 x 10) can be edge-blended at a time.
A wide adjustment range of the horizontal / vertical lens shift assures distortion-free images and adds convenience and versatility. It lets you easily make adjustments with the remote control, making it optimal for ceiling-mounted applications.
The PT-D6000S can be rotated vertically. This means you can install one at any up-and-down angle you want, to accommodate different installation conditions.
Anybody can operate the PT-D6000S by remote control or monitor its status over a LAN network, because it is done using the computer&s familiar Web browser. Furthermore, the PT-D6000S sends an E-mail message to notify the operator when an error has occurred, or a lamp needs to be replaced.
The LAN terminals support PJLink™ class 1 connection. Control with the same specifications is also possible when used in a multi-projector system with projectors of another brand.
This provides greater convenience for large conference rooms, lecture halls and gymnasiums with large audiences. Also, two signal transmission ports are provided to enable a large operating area.
The PT-D6000S has attained a low standby power level of 0.2 W*2, which is a top-class level for the projector industry. It also helps to slash running costs, and reduces environmental impact.
A mechanical lens shutter eliminates annoying light leakage when PT-D6000S is on standby or temporarily not in use, such as during a meeting.
Built-in capacitor provides power to cool the internal parts. This means that you can switch off the room&s main power as soon as the presentation ends. PT-D6000S doesn&t make you wait around and helps minimize lamp damage.
Dust filter is replaced from the side and lamps are replaced from the back panel. Both of them are replaced very easily even when PT-D6000 Series are installed.
*1 In Eco standby mode, LAN-based network functions such as the standby ON function will not operate.
*2 For North American models. European and Asian models are 0.3 W.
