The PT-VX505N/VX500 and PT-VW435N/VW430 rank high in the portable projector category with their high brightness of 5,000 lm and 4,300 lm, respectively. All models also incorporate a variable iris that produces a high contrast of 4,000:1 / 3,500:1.* This all combines to provide brighter, sharper projection for versatile situations.
*The PT-VX505N/VX500 has 5,000 lm of brightness and 4,000:1 contrast ratio.
The PT-VW435N/VW430 has 4,300 lm of brightness and 3,500:1 contrast ratio.
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-VW435N,VW430,VX505N and VX500 have a maximum lamp replacement cycle of 4,000 hours.* The air filters of the PT-VW435N,VW430,VX505N and VX500 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.
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.
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.
