Panasonic PT-AE4000: toller Full-HD-Beamer mit reichlich Einstellungen


'Panasonics Plasma-Fernseher geh\xf6ren definitiv zu den besten TV-Ger\xe4ten f\xfcrs Heimkino. Allerdings ist hier bei 65 Zoll Schluss. Der Hersteller hat aber auch Ausr\xfcstung f\xfcr noch gr\xf6\xdfere Anspr\xfcche im Angebot. Das Topmodell...

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.

Boxy design ; Some forward firing fan noise ; Take care with the high frame-rate settings

Panasonic PT-AE4000 LCD Projector


The Panasonic PT-AE4000 projector is a unique, almost crazily flexible and hugely tantalising product for its price point.

Panasonic PT-AE4000 review


The AE4000 doesn't improve quite as much as we'd like over last year's equivalent Panasonic model, but it's easily the most flexible projector in its class. We still couldn't get totally perfect pictures out of it despite that, but it's nonetheless a...

Good picture quality ; Excellent connectivity ; Exceptional array of setup aids ; Built-in aspect-ratio adjustment ; Good motion handling

Some features too complex for mainstream users ; Picture looks rather dark when optimised for black colour reproduction ; Slightly soft HD images

Conclusion The AE4000 doesn't improve massively over last year's AE3000 model, but its pictures are still often excellent. It's got unprecedented amounts of setup flexibility for its price too, including a really innovative system for accommodating...

Panasonic PT-AE4000 LCD Projector


The Panasonic PT-AE4000 projector is a unique, almost crazily flexible and hugely tantalising product for its price point.

Although the AE4000 still has room for improvement and leaves Epson plenty of wiggle room to justify charging significantly more for its TW5500 flagship LCD projector, Panasonic has undoubtedly delivered some really key improvements over the AE3000.

Panasonic PT-AE4000E review


Panasonic's PT-AE4000E is the successor to the Ultimate award-winning PT-AE3000E. It's just as good as you'd hope a projector this expensive to be. It has three HDMI inputs, as well as component, composite, S-Video and VGA, so you're unlikely to run...

Stunning image quality make this one of the best projectors you can get. Simply put, if you can afford it, buy it.

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.
