and active shutter glasses, or an active filter and passive glasses, for viewing 3D images.
Frame Sequential Images for each of the left and right eyes are transmitted, alternately at the rate of 60 frames per second.
Frame Packing Images for the left and right eyes are transmitted in one frame, while the resolution for each remains as it is.
Side by Side Images for the left and right eyes are transmitted in one frame, while horizontal resolution is reduced by half.
Top and Bottom Images for the left and right eyes are transmitted in one frame, while the vertical resolution is reduced by half.
Line by Line Images for the left and right eyes are allocated, to odd numbered lines and even numbered lines.
Simultaneous Images for the left and right eyes are transmitted by using two cables.
Waveform Monitor Function
When the output level of the source device fluctuates due to the performance of the device or its cable connections, the original black and white levels of the image content cannot be reproduced correctly. With the PT-DZ13KE Projector you can view the waveforms on the screen and adjust the settings either automatically or manually as you prefer.
Rec. 709 Mode for HDTV Projection
Optimal colour reproduction can be achieved by selecting this mode, compliant with ITU-R Recommendation BT.709, when images from an HDTV source are projected.
Panasonic’s Original Dual Lamp System
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.*
* If the Projector is to be operated continuously 24 hours a day / 7 days a week, use the Dual-Lamp optical system's alternating
Lamp operation (Lamp Changer) function. The Projector cannot be operated continuously 24 hours a day / 7 days a week in
Dual-Lamp mode. Allow a minimum of two hours per week of non-operation time per Lamp if using the Dual-Lamp mode.
Eco Filter that Needs No Maintenance for up to 12,000 Hours*
