The PT-AR100EAS1 lets friends and family enjoy Full-HD large screen entertainment, from movies and sports to video games. Panasonic’s advanced technologies bring crisp images, even in daytime brightness and improve colour reproduction accuracy in movies, to deliver images with a refined Hollywood tuning technology. Whether it is used for a house party filled with friends or for family movie nights, the PT-AR100EAS1 will keep you and your guests engaged in the story and action through its stunning image quality.
The Panasonic PT-AR100EAS1 projector produces bright, sharp images by employing a new, high-power 280-W Red-Rich Lamp and optical unit that combine to generate 2,800 lm of brightness for comfortable viewing in various lighting conditions.
Together with 2,800 lm of brightness, Panasonic's Light Harmonizer 3 technology assists the versatile use of the projector by automatically adjusting the picture quality of the image to match the living room or theatre room conditions. This is made possible by utilising built-in ambient light and colour sensors that adjust the white balance, gamma curve, and sharpness settings to maintain bright, crisp pictures that match the viewing environment.
The PT-AR100EAS1 features seven picture modes for various viewing situations, including modes that are ideal for sports, games and movies: Normal, Dynamic, Game, Sports, Rec. 709, Cinema 1 and Vivid Cinema.
Cinema 1 Mode Offers Hollywood Picture Quality
Movies can be enjoyed in Cinema 1 mode that has been tuned carefully to faithfully express the director's artistic intent. Panasonic has continued to work side by side with Hollywood experts to deliver this ideal image reproduction for viewing movies.
Game Mode for Stress-Free Playing
This mode improves signal processing for better response, allowing you to play games with minimal stress. It also reveals gradation in saturated areas to show details that are otherwise lost in very dark areas.
Sports Mode with Motion Effect for Sharp Action Scenes
In Sports mode, together with the Motion Effect feature, the PT-AR100EAS1 detects and extenuates detail on moving objects, resulting in intensified action with clearer, more highlighted players.
This intelligent iris system works by analysing the brightness level of each image using a histogram, then adjusting the lamp power, iris and gamma curve accordingly to create the ideal image. The adjustments are made virtually frame by frame. This achieves an astounding contrast ratio of 50,000:1, providing a wide dynamic range with swift smoothness for added beauty in both dark and bright scenes.
This digital image processing circuit brings greater clarity and sharpness to details, by reproducing fine nuances that were lost due to image compression. After a two dimensional analysis of the video signal's frequency in each scene, the new circuit optimises the sharpness of each image portion based on the extracted information. The resulting images have a more natural, lifelike expression than those of previous image-processing methods. The detection of super-high-frequency image components also enables more faithful reproduction of highly detailed information, such as the film grain in movies. The effect can be adjusted in eight steps from 0 to +7.
The 2x optical zoom lens on the PT-AR100EAS1 provides a wide throw range, and the image can be shifted ±65% vertically and ±26% horizontally. This outstanding level of set up flexibility lets you enjoy large-screen viewing in different-sized rooms. Position it on a table in front of you, suspend it from the ceiling, or place it on a bookshelf behind you.

The PT-AR100EAS1 has two HDMI input terminals for digital transmission without image degradation. The HDMI input terminals also support Deep Colour and the x.v.Colour colour space of the 1.3 standard. Deep Colour provides 10-bit (over 1.07 billion) and 12-bit (over 68.7 billion) colour depths for smooth gradation between colours, while x.v.Colour compliance reproduces natural, lifelike images.*
* Effective in Cinema 1 image mode.
Two 12V triggers are provided. Since the input and output can be set independently (menu selectable), they can link flexibly with powered screens, room lights and powered curtains.
The PT-AR100EAS1 supports VIERA Link. If your Home Theatre system contains VIERA Link-ready equipment, projection can be started by using only the remote control unit of the PT-AR100EAS1, regardless of whether the source is a Blu-ray Disc, or a TV programme stored on an HD recorder. This eliminates the need for having several remote controls.
A frequently used function can be assigned to the Function button located on the remote for instant recall.
The PT-AR100EAS1 has a super quiet operation of just 29dB, making it perfect for any environment.
