Panasonic is known for its TVs and home appliances, but its projector business is doing great too, enough that Hollywood filmmakers agreed to participate in the development of a certain model.
The product in question is called PT-AE8000U and can render 1080p video in 2D just as easily as it can produce 3D.
For excellent image quality and clarity, Panasonic gave the item a brightness of 2,400 lumens and a contrast ratio of 500,000:1.
“Panasonic engineers bring us in to make evaluations and listen to what we have to say, so that when they are doing the design work they take our considerations into effect,” said Steven Poster ASC, cinematographer. “I don’t know of any other home theater projector manufacturers doing that at this point.”
The video above is a relatively short documentary that describes how the product came to be. Check it out or go to the product page, located here
