High Picture Quality

Vivid Pictures in Bright Environments

With up to 5,800 lm of brightness, the PT-EW6400 serves up brilliant, punchy images even with the lights on.  Text is sharp and clearly legible while graphics, photos, and video images are reproduced with a clean and natural vibrancy.

High Contrast Performance with Iris

Expect dazzling highlights and inky blacks with a high contrast ratio of 5,000:1 assisted by an iris, which alters brightness according to the scene or image.

The Daylight View Basic Function Ensures Clear Images Even in Brightly Lit Rooms

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.

Side-by-Side and P-in-P Function* for Effective Presentations and Lectures

Two different image sources can be simultaneously displayed onto a single screen.  You can also switch to P-in-P (Picture-in-Picture) mode and display a sub-window onto the main screen.  The sub-window can be positioned anywhere on the screen for more flexible and effective image presentations.
*This function is not effective for some source combinations.

DICOM Simulation Mode*

This imaging mode is similar to DICOM part 14, which is a medical imaging standard.  It reproduces X-ray images with remarkable clarity.
*This product is not a medical instrument.  Do not use it for actual medical diagnosis.

Color Adjustment Function

A color adjustment function allows you to easily correct for slight variations in the color reproduction range of individual units set up for multiple projection, particularly in side-by-side configuration.  Correction is performed on 3 colors (R, G, B) or 7 colors (R, G, B, C, M, Y, W).

Lamp Replacement Cycle of up to 4,500 hours*

The PT-EW640 projector features a lamp replacement cycle of up to 4,500 hours.*  This helps to lower operating costs by providing longer usage between lamp replacements.
*With lamp power set to Eco. Up to 4,000 hours with lamp power set to Normal.

A Dust-Resistant Cabinet Design and an Eco Filter that Needs No Replacement for 17,000 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 17,000 hours.*1  This large, pleated Micro Cut Filter (electrostatic filter) uses an ion effect to trap minute dust particles, further raising the overall dust-trapping capability.

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*2 and reused as an environmental consideration.
*1 The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.
*2 When washing with water, please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions.  Also, Panasonic recommends 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.

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 27 %*.  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 power set to Auto.

Easy Lamp and Air Filter Replacement

For easy maintenance, you can replace the filter from the side and the lamp from the top of the projector.  The filter and lamp are easily replaced even after the projector is installed on the ceiling.

Environmentally Friendly Standby Power Consumption of Only 0.3 W*

When the Standby mode is set to Eco, the standby power consumption is low at 0.3 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.

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.  You can easily set the Eco Management functions according to operating conditions by using the ECO button on the remote control.

Simplified DIGITAL LINK Connections (PT-EZ580/EZ580L, PT-EW640/EW640L, PT-EX610/EX610L)

DIGITAL LINK - The Single Cable Solution

Equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, the PT-EW640 allows transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 100 meters (328 feet) through a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher.  This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations.

Optional ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box for Easy Setup

By combining the optional ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box, with its HDMI and other input terminals, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals can be transmitted up to 100 m (328 feet) over a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher.  It allows projector connection with only one cable, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations.

Also, because control signals can be simultaneously transmitted, the ET-YFB100G input signal can easily be switched with the wireless remote control that is included with the projector.  The projector can be controlled by either serial or LAN communication.

Also Supports Other Manufacturers' Peripheral Equipment

DIGITAL LINK is an original function added to HDBaseT™ technology.  Signals from the ET-YFB100G can also be relayed to a non-DIGITAL LINK-ready projector by using another manufacturer’s equipment based on the same technology.*
*Input selection and other ET-YFB100G operations can be performed only when connecting to a DIGITAL LINK compatible projector.

Flexible Installation

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.

Corner Keystone Correction Enables Angled Projection

All you need to do is designate four points as the corners of the projected image, and this function easily carries out horizontal and vertical keystone correction.

Wide Range of Optional Lenses are Interchangeable with PT-EZ770 Series

If you're considering adding the PT-EW640 projector to your AV network, it's good to know that Panasonic's range of optional lenses (including fixed-throw, short-throw, and long-throw) is fully interchangeable between this model and Panasonic's PT-EZ770 Series of projectors.

Crestron Connected™ and AMX Device Discovery

The LAN terminal allows a computer connected to the network to use Crestron Connected™ application software to manage and control system devices.  Besides, the AMX Device Discovery technology is built in the PT-EZ580 Series.

Easy Remote Monitoring and Control over a LAN

Web browser on a computer connected through a wired LAN system lets you remotely operate projectors and check their status.  An e-mail messaging function can also notify you when a lamp needs replacement, and indicate the overall projector status.

In addition, Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software is available for monitoring and controlling multiple Panasonic projectors from a single PC.

The wired LAN terminal is compatible with PJLink™ (class1), an open protocol that is used by many manufacturers, to enable integrated control of systems that contain different brands of projectors.

Abundant Terminal Including HDMI, DVI-D input terminals and Display Port

Extensive interfaces include HDMI and DVI-D input terminals, DisplayPort, DIGITAL LINK and two sets of computer (RGB) input terminals.*  And the serial terminal (RS-232C) has an Emulate function that lets you continue using existing control systems when replacing legacy Panasonic and Sanyo projectors.  It is also possible to output audio during Standby mode.  This is convenient when connecting an external audio system through the projector.
*Computer (RGB) input terminals supports YPBPR (YCBCR) signals.

Quiet 29-dB* Design Does Not Interrupt Meetings or Classes

The quiet design keeps noise levels down to 29 dB,* so the sound of the cooling fan is hardly noticeable.  This helps the audience to keep their attention on the speech when someone is giving a presentation or on the screen images during quiet scenes.
*With the lamp power set to Eco. 35 dB with lamp power set to Normal.

Mechanical Lens Shutter

The mechanical lens shutter completely blocks annoying light leakage when the projector is on standby or temporarily not in use, such as during a meeting.
