Panasonic PT-RW430UK Projector Review
DICOM Picture Mode
Panasonic has included a special picture mode to the PT-RW430UK that displays images simulating the DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) standard used with B/W medical imaging (such as X-rays). This mode optimizes black/gray/white detail. Like other projectors that include such a mode, it is not intended for actual medical evaluation, but it allows for more accurate training of medical students, as well as more detailed medical imaging presentations.
Horizontal and Vertical Lens Shift
To facilitate ease of installation, the Panasonic PT-RW430UK has manual lens shift in both the horizontal and vertical directions. Vertical lens shift has a maximum of +69% upwards (if table mounted) and -46% downwards. Horizontal shift maximums are 28% left and 37% right.
Panasonic uses a combination of red and blue LEDs, with a blue laser (used in combination with a yellow phosphor wheel to create green) in the place of a more traditional lamp. This results in much greater lamp life. The PT-RW430UK is rated at 20,000 hours for its light source. Internal components are kept cool via a heat pipe cooling system, thus extending the life of the internal components. As there are no filters to replace either, the PT-RW430UK is virtually a maintenance-free projector.
Multiple Projector Support
For large screen applications, the PT-RW430UK can be paired with additional projectors. Not only are edge blending controls available, but the projectors can also match colors and brightness for a truly seamless display.
360 Degree Installation
The projector can be rotated a full 360 degrees vertically to provide flexibility in any installation. It’s portrait mode allows for the projector to be placed vertically with its side panel facing down, to project onto a long, vertical screen.
Digital Link Display and Control
With the use of an optional digital interface box, HD video, audio and control signals can be transmitted over a single LAN cable to the PT-RW430UK from distances of up to 100 m. (328 ft.). This enables the use of existing Cat. 5e or 6 wiring to the projector, without additional wiring needed.
Full 3D Capability
The PT-RW430UK can display 3D over HDMI 1.4 and the Digital Link input, but is also capable of displaying 3D over DVI-I and frame sequential 3D from a PC. It supports DLP Link, but there is also a 3D SYNC OUT jack for use with an external 3D IR transmitter.
