Panasonic PT-AE 4000

 

The Panasonic PT-AE 4000 is a Full HD LCD projector that hit the market in late 2009. Online, the device currently sells from about 2,100 GBP in the UK and about 2,000 USD in the United States.

Accurate colours ; Contrast-rich images ; Loads of video settings ; 2x zoom and lens shift ; Excellent 24p reproduction ; Top motion clarity

Slight discolouration in fine patterns ; Coloured fringes on moving edges ; Poor de-interlacing in standard TV

In terms of light output, the PT-AE 4000 surpasses its predecessors. It also combines attractive colours with outstanding contrast, as well as versatile and professional features. Not so impressive, on the other hand, were the small colour fringes on...

Panasonic Home PT-AE4000U Review

 

This month the Panasonic AE4000 comes to market at a jaw-dropping $1,999 official street price.

All of this adds up to a remarkable value proposition: at a street of $1,999, we've simply never seen this much performance at this price. Panasonic has been extremely tight-lipped about this product launch. Until now many thought the company was...

Panasonic PT-AE4000U

 

The Panasonic PT-AE4000U LCD Projector is a fantastic unit that's very expensive, which is why it comes in second place on our list of home theater projectors, as we mentioned above. This is always a big deciding factor when it comes to making any...

Excellent contrast ratio. Incredible throw distance and overall diagonal image size

It's expensive. The lumens rating is slightly lower than similar models

This is a terrific projector to consider if you can afford it.

A Superlative Video Projector

 

I have had this projector for two weeks now and I can find nothing I dislike. Even the "Con" I mention (about the focus control) is very minor as focusing is still easy and accurate.

Superb Image Quality. Extremely Large Number of Adjustment Options. Extremely Easy to Operate and Adjust. Extremely Quiet Operation

It would be helpful to have a fine-tuning option for the focus control

Product Specifications

The Panasonic PT-AE4000 is Panasonic's upgrade to the popular PT-AE3000U. It surpasses the Panasonic PTAE3000 in image quality, and has more features as well. The pure contrast plate in the PT-AE4000 uses an engineered crystalline material that is carefully matched to the characteristics of the LCD panels to effectively correct the passage of light exiting the panels. This enables the projector to block unwanted light leakage and successfully increases the dynamic range. It works together with the dynamic iris to achieve an astounding contrast ratio of 100,000:1. While many LCD projectors suffer from a "chicken wire" effect, Panasonics pursuit of the highest possible image quality has successfully overcome this device limitation through the incorporation of Smooth Screen technology. This uses the double refraction property of crystals to arrange pixels on a screen with no gaps between them. Smooth Screen technology is designed to give you the kind of smooth, vivid, and three-dimensional like images you see in movie theaters. The PT-AE4000's full-HD LCD panels have a double-speed drive capability that improves the projection clarity of moving images. These high-precision panels use vertically aligned liquid crystal molecules with inorganic alignment layers. When no voltage is applied, the molecules are aligned perpendicular to the glass substrate, so there is minimal light leakage and the substrate remains black (called "normally black" operation), providing higher contrast. The PT-AE4000 converts pixels according to the characteristics of the on-screen image and adjacent pixels. This not only improves image sharpness and reduces noise; it also helps create beautifully enlarged images from 480p sources, so you enjoy superb picture quality when viewing DVDs from your home collection.
