Manufacturer's Description

The PT.

VX500 is an advanced portable projector with high brightness and abundant features, combining superb functionality and flexibility, and eco-friendly performance from a compact body.Ranking high in the portable projector category, the PT.

VX500's 5,000 lumens brightness and variable iris, produce a high contrast of 4,000:1 for brighter, sharper projection for versatile situations. Panasonic's innovative Daylight View Basic technology reproduces details in dark image areas previously difficult to see in brightly lit rooms. While innovative quiet design keeps noise levels down to 29dB, making the sound of the cooling fan hardly noticeable, even during quiet scenes.Air inside the projector is also kept clean for long periods of time, and brightness degradation is minimized, with an air filter replacement cycle of up-to-4000 hours, and lamp replacement cycle of up-to-4000 hours. In turn reducing the hassle and cost of maintenance, and minimising environmental impact.
