The PT-AE2000U delivers 1080p images with a carefully-tuned lens system to reproduce remarkable detail and clarity with 1,500 lumen brightness and 16,000:1 contrast ratio.
The PT-AE2000U model comes equipped with Panasonic's new optical system that's designed to display beautifully detailed images with a captivating brightness of 1,500 lumens. The projector's new Detail Clarity Processor analyzes frequency characteristics of each frame in three dimensions (horizontal, vertical, and along the time axis) and applies necessary sharpness at varying degrees to create natural, life-like images with exceptional clarity.

"Continuing our close collaboration with leading Hollywood colorists and image experts, we've taken our projector technology to the next level to meet the growing demand for high-definition home entertainment content," said Thomas Zitelli, president of Panasonic Projector Systems Company. "For home theater connoisseurs and audio video professionals who desire the richest colors and the best image quality, our new PT-AE2000U LCD projector enables viewers to easily enjoy movie theater-quality entertainment at home."

The new projector also incorporates Panasonic's well-known Smooth Screen technology that reduces the black lines between pixels that mar picture quality. The technology has been tuned together with the new full-HD optical unit, allowing consumers to enjoy vibrant, smooth images found in commercial movie theaters. In addition, Panasonic's original Dynamic Iris has also been improved for further stability and response by controlling the iris speed at finer increments to help reproduce darker blacks and brighter whites.

This is Panasonic's second 1080p projector and is an upgrade to last year's PT-AE1000U.

The 1000U received stellar reviews:

The 2000U should be an impressive performer as well. Note the improved brightness (from 1,100 to 1,500 ANSI lumnes) and the improved contrast ratio (from 11,000:1 to 16,000:1).

Of course anything this good will come at a premium.
