• A highly bright portable with 5,000 lm of brightness.
• The Daylight View Basic function ensures clear images even in brightly lit rooms.
• The Vertical Lens Shift moves the image position vertically without distorting.
• 10-Watt speakers and a microphone input enable audio playback directly from the projector.
The PT-VX500 ranks highly in the portable projector category with its high brightness of 5,000 lm. It also incorporates a variable iris that produces a high contrast of 4,000:1. This all combines to provide brighter, sharper projection for versatile situations.
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.
The PT-VX500 has a maximum lamp replacement cycle of 4,000 hours.*1 The air filters of the PT-VX500 also have a replacement cycle of 4,000 hours.*2 This reduces maintenance hassles for long periods of use, and helps to lower maintenance costs and reduce environmental impact.
The quiet design keeps noise levels down to 29 dB,*3 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.
Lamp power switching further reduces power consumption. Standby power consumption of only 0.3 W*4 has been achieved.
The PT-VW430 Series also complies with the standards of the RoHS Directive.
What is RoHS?
RoHS is the acronym for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. All applicable products in the EU market after July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance.
What are the restricted materials mandated under RoHS?
The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
Why is RoHS compliance important?
The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment and pollute landfills, and are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing and recycling.
The VX500 features the Lens Shift function in the vertical direction. It moves the image position vertically without distorting it.
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.
These portable projectors feature high-output 10-watt speakers that produce a high sound volume without requiring external speakers. They also feature a microphone input terminal that allows microphone sounds to be output from the projector. These features make presentations even more effective.
Extensive interfaces include an HDMI input terminal, 2 sets of computer (RGB) input terminals, a wired LAN terminal, and a serial (RS-232C) terminal for external control. These features support a wide range of system architectures for portable or ceiling-mounted use.
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.
The LAN terminal allows a computer connected to the network to use Crestron RoomView™ application software to manage and control system devices
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.
• Direct Power Off right after use
• A carrying bag with a handy shoulder strap comes with the projector
• Effective theft prevention with the startup logo*5
• Projector identification system for remote control allocation of up to six projectors
• Built-in closed caption decoder
• AMX D. D. CompliantX
*1This 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.
*2The lamp power: Eco. The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.
*3 With the lamp power set to Eco.
*4 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.
