New cooling structure
In order to further enhance the cooling efficiency, we completely revised the placement of various internal components and combined this with our popular cooling system to enable use in temperatures up to 45°C. This allows use in a wider variety of environments, and keeps the operation more stable even in harsh conditions.
Panasonic's original liquid-cooling system directly cools the DLP chips, which extends the PT-D10000U's performance and attains a high level of reliability.
Lamp LED indicator and self-diagnosis function
The projector body is equipped with a temperature alarm LED and a burnt-lamp alarm LED (for lamps 1 to 4). In previous models, the LED indicator was visible only from the front. In the PT-D10000U the LED is visible from both front and top, so you can see it easily even if the unit is hung from the ceiling. Information on the location of the error is also given in the on-screen display. A self-diagnosis function is also provided. Error codes displayed on the 3-digit, 7-segment LED on the side of the projector tell the operator where the problem is.
Incorporating exclusive Panasonic technology, the dynamic iris opens and closes with exceptional speed and precision as the input signal changes, resulting in accurate, realtime control of the light striking the DLP chips. The dynamic iris is positioned immediately after the light synthesizer and before the integrator, so it has minimal adverse effect on the overall light uniformity across the screen.
Full 10-bit picture processing
The use of a full 10-bit image processing system provides smooth tonal expression. For example, skin tones appear natural and true to life.
Web browser control/ monitoring and e-mail message alert
Anybody can operate the PT-D10000U by remote control or monitor its status over a LAN network, because it is all done using the computer's familiar web browser. Furthermore, the PT-D10000U sends an email message to notify the operator when an error has occurred, or a lamp needs to be replaced.
Horizontal/Vertical lens shift
A wide adjustment range for the horizontal/ vertical lens shift assures virtually distortionfree images and adds convenience and versatility. Fine adjustment is made within ±50 % from center in the vertical direction and within ±30 % from center in the horizontal direction. (Horizontal: powered, Vertical: powered)
* For the ET-D75LE6, the adjustment is within ±40 % in the vertical direction and ±20 % in the horizontal direction.
Optional lenses for various venues
Seven optional lenses with different throw distances are available. These powered zoom/focus lenses enable the projector to perform superbly in an array of projection environments. The lens cover opens in both front and top directions, making it easier to install the lens by viewing the mark on the top of the lens.
3D color management system
Compensation provides optimal levels of color saturation, hue, and brightness that were not possible with conventional projectors. Colors approach those of the original image, even on large-screen displays.
Progressive cinema scan (3/2 pulldown)
This interlace/progressive conversion technology automatically detects when the input signal is derived from filmed material and selects the optimum progressive processing method to assure faithful reproduction of the original image.
Dynamic sharpness control
The dynamic sharpness control circuit adjusts the video signal waveforms based on the difference in brightness of adjacent pixels for a sharp, clear picture that is relatively unaffected by signal noise.
