Panasonic's original dual-lamp system, with its new 355-W lamp, has helped to make the body approximately 49% smaller than Panasonic's original PT-D10000 series, while providing a full 10,600 lm of brightness.
Panasonic's new Dynamic Iris uses a scene-linking aperture mechanism to achieve a remarkable 10,000:1*1 contrast without lowering its high brightness. This helps to reproduce deeper, richer blacks, and provides images with more detailed textures.
The frequency of the video signal is analyzed for each scene, and distribution data is extracted for the ultrahigh, high, medium and low-range frequencies. This unique Panasonic image correction circuit optimally enhances each area of the screen. High-precision detection is applied from 2-dimensional horizontal/vertical data to produce more natural, lifelike images with high definition.
This original Panasonic technology 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 lifelike depth. This results in highly comfortable viewing even in bright lighting, and allows viewers to concentrate easily on the images.
This imaging mode is similar to DICOM Part 14, which is a medical imaging standard. It reproduces X-ray images with remarkable clarity. It also allows information to be shared by many viewers on a large screen, such as during conferences or training courses.

This system eliminates the interruption if a lamp should fail (in dual-lamp operation mode). The Lamp Relay mode also operates the lamps alternately to enable 24/7 projection.
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 superior dust-collecting performance of the Micro Cut Filter, which is a highly efficient electrostatic filter. As a result, the filter does not need to be replaced for up to 10,000 hours*4 or more, greatly reducing the hassle of maintenance.
Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software Ver. 2
Panasonic's original freeware "Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software Ver. 2" allows the user to control and monitor multiple projectors at the same time over a wired LAN. When a problem occurs, an alarm message is sent to the monitoring/ controlling PC.
Web Browser Control
The PT-DS100X can be easily operated remotely over a LAN network, because it is done using the computer&s familiar web browser. Furthermore, the projector 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.
An original cooling system enhances the compact body and enables the projector to operate at a silent 37 dB.
All PT-DS100X projectors are carefully manufactured at the Panasonic factory in Japan, under strict quality control. This is another, very important advantage of a Panasonic projector.
The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift function assures virtually distortion-free images and adds convenience and versatility. It lets you easily make adjustments with the remote control. The unit can also be rotated 360° vertically. This means you can install it at any angle you want, to accommodate different installation conditions. The lens-centered design also contributes to easy installation.
This function enables adjustment of images for projection onto spherical, cylindrical and other specially shaped screens. You can make the adjustment easily using just the remote control, with no external equipment needed. Used together with the multi‐screen support system, the Geometric Adjustment expands your application possibilities, letting you create a wide range of image effects at concerts, performances and other special events.
The edges of adjacent screens can be blended and their luminance controlled.
This function corrects for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual projectors. The PC software assures easy, accurate control.
The PT-DS100X can project large, multiscreen images without any additional equipment. Up to 100 units (10 × 10) can be edgeblended at a time.
This function automatically corrects the brightness fluctuations that occur over time in the individual projectors of a multi-screen system. A maximum of eight projectors can be controlled by connecting each other via a hub, and this can be increased to a maximum of 2,048 projectors by using "Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software Ver. 2".
Choose from a wide lineup of lenses for your system, including short-throw, long-throw zoom and fixed-throw lenses for rear projection use. The additional lenses make it easy to adapt your projector to the installation site. The lenses attach and detach with one-touch ease.
The PT-DS100X has an array of terminals, including a DVI-D (HDCP compliant), to support a broad range of projection needs. Using the serial terminal (RS-232C), it is possible to connect and operate AMX and Crestron control systems with ease. In addition, the DS100X accommodates the HD/SD-SDI input signals that are widely used in broadcasting.
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 cooling fan continues to operate even when the main power switch is turned off after projection is finished. This also allows the power to be turned off by directly switching off the room&s main breaker for systems, such as ceiling mounted systems, where the main power switch cannot be reached.
Scheduled operation is possible using the built-in timer function, without having to use a PC and software. For example, when using the projector for digital signage in a store, it can be set to operate with two lamps in the daytime and one lamp at night.
Two different image sources can be simultaneously displayed.*6 The size and position of both main and sub windows can be changed for more flexible and effective image presentations.

*2 This product is not a medical instrument. Do not use it for actual medical diagnosis.
*3 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. It is recommended that the mechanical shutter be used to turn images off for a short period.
