• Images can be projected onto an 80-inch-wide screen from an ultra-short distance of 0.32 m (1.05’).
• Four types of installation (either horizontally or vertically on a table, wall, ceiling or floor) make it possible to meet various installation requirements.
• 3D projection makes classes, seminars, events and exhibitions more impressive and effective, providing a wider range of uses.
There is no need to worry about glare of the projection light and the presenter&s shadow on the screen. The projector*2 can be installed either horizontally or vertically on a table, wall, ceiling or floor, to enable new uses and meet new installation requirements.
The PT-CW230 ultra-short throw projector delivers powerful 3D images. "The Frame Sequential Method"*3 displays stereoscopic images by synchronizing the projector with the 3D glasses.*4 The combination of this system with the short-throw function enables space-saving 3D projection, helping you create innovative and attractive presentations.
• Events with dramatic impact
3D projection onto a wall, floor, or ceiling makes your event more successful.
• Highly realistic museums
Powerful 3D projection is real and appealing, increasing visitors& satisfaction.
• Exhibitions with promotional effects
Powerful large-screen 3D projection in limited booth space, enhancing the appeal of products and services.
• Appealing displays
Short-throw, large screen (110 inch max.) projection is effective for showroom/shop window display.
NVIDIA® 3D Vision™
You can build the 3D system by using the configuration shown below. Enjoy vivid 3D worlds such as powerful high-definition games, digital photos, 3D Blu-ray Discs, streaming movies and videos.
As synchronized signals are contained in 3D images that you view, you can build the 3D system without connecting the emitter.
3D SYNC OUT terminal (of PT-CW230/CX200) and the IR emitter are connected to build the 3D system.
In the DLP™ system, the image quality does not degrade with time due to long life of the device. You can use the projector for various systems over a long period without worry of quality loss.*5
High brightness of 2,000 lm ensures bright and easy-to-see image projection. The volume level of the 10 W high-output speaker is enough for meeting rooms and classrooms; you do not need to use an external speaker. You can make multi-media presentations (including audio presentations).
A 3,000-hour*6 lamp replacement cycle and a 4,000-hour*7 air filter replacement cycle reduce the hassle and the cost of maintenance for a long time, minimizing environmental impact.
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.
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.
Extensive interfaces, including two sets of computer (RGB) input terminals (one set is switchable to output.) and an HDMI input terminal, allows a wide range of system configurations.
As the quiet design keeps noise levels down to 28-dB*8, the sound of the cooling fan is hardly noticeable. The audience can concentrate on the presentation and the screen images even during quiet scenes.
When Standby mode is set to Eco,*9 the standby power consumption is low at 0.45 W. This lowers running costs, and helps to reduce environmental impact.
The breaker in the room is directly turned off without operating the power switch of the ceiling-mounted projector. You can leave the room immediately after the meeting or the class.
For easier maintenance, you can replace the lamp and the air filter from the top of the projector, 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.
An abundance of other security measures are included, such as a security bar, Key lock, and PIN code lock function. This is very effective for preventing theft.
• Presentation support/control tools such as Presentation Timer, Freeze Function, and Digital Zoom
• Projector identification system for remote control allocation of up to two projectors
• Built-in closed caption decoder
*1 Projection distance for 80-inch screen
• PT-CW230: 0.32 m (1.05&) (16:10 aspect ratio)
*2 Projector setup: Installation position is 0°±10°, 90°±10°, 180°±10°, or 270°±10°.
*3 In this method, images for the right eye and the left eye are switched at a high speed.
*4 To view 3D images, active-shutter 3D glasses are separately required. (In the active shutter system, the right/left liquid crystal shutter is opened and closed alternately according to projected images.)
*5 Twenty-four-hour continuous operation is not available.
*6 This is the maximum value when the lamp power is set to Eco mode where the lamp is turned on for 2 hours and off for 0.25 hours. If the lamp is turned on more times or kept on for a long time, the lamp replacement cycle will shorten. In Normal mode, the lamp replacement cycle is 2,000 hours. The usage environment affects the duration of the lamp.
*7 With the lamp power set to Eco. The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.
*8 When the lamp power is set to Eco and fan control is set to Off. (Non-high altitude setting)
*9 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.
[Caution when viewing 3D images]
View 3D images at a distance at least three times further than the height of the screen.
Each person views and feels the 3D images differently. In some cases, the effects may cause viewers to feel sick.
If you see double 3D images or do not see stereoscopic images, you may feel fatigue or discomfort.
If you feel sick, immediately stop viewing 3D images.
Children under the age of six should not view 3D images.
