Panasonic has upgraded their remote, from the older LB30NTU. The old projector had a limited functionality "credit card" sized remote. The LB60NTU, instead has a small, but thicker remote, that also has a disk pad for navigation on it, with the Enter function triggered by pressing down on the disk pad.
The new remote is a major improvement, and slightly longer range. Officially Panasonic says 23 feet, but I found that it was actually usable to almost 30 feet.
The remote also has page up and page down control for Powerpoint type presentations when you are presenting wirelessly, which means only the NTU version. The LB60U and NTU have no USB port, to do traditional remote mousing, where the projector's remote essentially emulates a computer's mouse. Of course anyone with the U version, or an NTU, who want's full remote mousing can buy 3rd party remote mice, from about $40-$50.
Another feature controlled by the remote allows you to put up two side by side images. The first (index) image is a static image captured from the live screen. Once you set that, it will occupy half the width, with the other half for a new live screen. For example, you could capture a pie chart, place it on the right, and view a spreadsheet or text, or whatever else you can bring up on the computer, on the left side.
But getting back to the remote itself, the NTU's version (shown has buttons relating to wireless operation, the index window, digital zoom in and out, volume control and four buttons for choosing your source. There is also an audio/video mute button labelled Shutter.
