Video

Supports Full HD

The Panasonic PT-RZ970 supports full HD. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for the last year do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Vivitek DU8090Z (£13,680).

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the PX1004UL, or the PX1004UL both from NEC.
