OUR PART # PTEX500U
Panasonic's PT-EX500 produces bright, easy-to-see images for classrooms, university lecture rooms, engineering or art classes, and company meeting rooms. Its ecological design works great in flexible systems and offers easy maintenance.
Even with its light, compact body, the PT-EX500 produces brightness of up to 5,000 lm. In addition, the iris automatically adjusts itself to match the situation, resulting in high contrast ratio of up to 2,000:1.
Panasonic's Daylight View Basic technology achieves sharp, easy-to-see images by clearly reproducing the details in dark image areas, which were previously difficult to see in brightly lit rooms. A built-in sensor measures the ambient light, and the Daylight View Basic function adjusts the halftone color and brightness level according to the surrounding illumination.
A Dust-Resistant Cabinet Design and an Eco Filter that Needs No Replacement for 12,000 Hours
The cabinet is designed with a straight airflow path, from intake to exhaust. The shielding of the lens section, where dust is likely to enter, has been further improved to keep dust out. And the sealing performance of the air filter unit and air intake duct has been increased to prevent the entry of dust from the filter periphery, resulting in a highly dust-resistant structure.
The Eco Filter unit, which efficiently captures dust in the intake airflow path, requires no replacement for up to 12,000 hours.* This large, pleated Micro Cut Filter (electrostatic filter) uses an ion effect to trap minute dust particles, further raising the overall dust-trapping capability.
*The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.
These features minimize the entry of dust into the optical block and maintain brightness over a long period of time, while reducing the hassle of maintenance. Also, in addition to achieving a long replacement cycle, the Eco Filter can be washed with water** and reused as an environmental consideration.
**When washing with water, please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions. Also, we recommend replacing the filter with a new one after it has been washed and reused twice. If the filter is not sufficiently clean after washing, replace it with a new one.
Inorganic Materials Maintain Image Quality Longer
The PT-EX500's optical block maintains a high level of performance over time, due to the use of inorganic materials in the LCD panels and polarizers, thus achieving a replacement cycle of 10,000 hours. It also makes them the logical choice for a truly dependable LCD projector system.
Lamp Replacement Cycle of up to 4,000 Hours
The PT-EX500 features a lamp replacement cycle of up to 4,000 hours.* This helps to lower operating costs by providing longer usage between lamp replacements.
*This is the maximum value when the lamp power is set to Eco1 or Eco2, with the lamp turned on for 2 hours and off for 0.25 hours. Increases in the lamp on cycle or extended use with the lamp continuously turned on will shorten the lamp replacement cycle. When the lamp power is set to Normal, the lamp replacement cycle is 3,000 hours. The usage environment affects the lamp replacement cycle.
Environmentally Friendly Standby Power Consumption of Only 0.4 W
When the Standby mode is set to Eco, the standby power consumption is low at 0.4 W.* This lowers running costs, and helps to reduce environment impact.
*Standby mode: Eco. When Standby mode is set to Eco, network functions such as standby on via LAN are not available. Also, only certain commands can be received for external control using the serial terminal.
Intelligent Lamp Control System Reduces Power Consumption
When the lamp power is set to Auto, the Intelligent Lamp Control system automatically adjusts the lamp output in accordance with the brightness of the projected image and reduces it by up to 70 %.* It also combines with color shift correction, which corrects the shift in the color balance that occurs when the lamp output drops. As a result, power consumption is effectively reduced while excellent color reproduction is maintained.
*With the lamp mode set to Auto.
Eco Management Functions
A number of functions are provided to reduce power consumption. They adjust the brightness according to ambient light conditions, and reduce the lamp power when there is no signal input or the projector is in AV Mute mode. You can easily set the Eco Management functions according to operating conditions by using the ECO button on the remote control.
The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift function assures convenience and versatility during installation. It lets you easily make adjustments with the remote control. The unit can also be rotated 360 degrees vertically. This means you can install it at any angle you want, to accommodate different installation conditions.
