What is small, white and made specially for Asians? The answer is the Panasonic PT-LB1EA and PT-LB2EA entry-level projectors.
The new series, codenamed Shiro (which literally means white in Japanese), have been specially engineered in Japan for the Asian market to be portable, simple, reliable and affordable.
The two models in the series are both finished in white and feature XGA (1024x768 pixel) resolutions.
The main difference between the two is that the PT-LB1EA features a brightness level of 2,200 lumens and the PT-LB2EA has a brighter 2,600 lumens output.
Amongst the features specially engineered for the Asian market is a resistance to spikes and drops in the electrical supply, said Tan Chee Hon, group product manager for Panasonic’s professional AV solutions team.
For example, in situations where there is a power cut-off, the internal cooling system will still operate to cool down the lamp.
The projectors also feature a Daylight View technology which senses ambient lighting and can boost the image quality so it will be easily viewable even in bright situations.
All the standard inputs are present — two VGA inputs, one RCA video input, S-video and even a LAN port which lets you monitor an operate the projector from a computer connected to the network.
The PT-LB1EA retails for RM2,200 and the PT-LB2EA goes for RM2,600. — TAN KIT HOONG
