The PT-AE is not in the same price point as our new reference projector JVC HDbut it offers a very capable image that while falling ultimately short of the pure fidelity and deep blacks of the JVC, it does so by producing an image that looks more expensive than its asking price. The finest tuning available to humanity The AE’s onscreen menus are really quite intimidating in the amount of further fine-tuning options they carry.

For those who really love to play with their projectors the Panasonic offers its own waveform generator, which, in conjunction with test patterns can be used to do much of the calibration. But this projector has two. Show less Show more. Super-quiet 22dB Eco mode? Keep in mind that there are trade-offs. I have spoken with Panasonic about this and hopefully next year’s projectors will fix the issue.

Panasonic x LCD Projector. But that model competes in a price level twice that of the Panasonic we have for review today. You may also like. Adjustment point positions can be shifted both horizontally and vertically to bring out the desired gradation level.

Keep me logged in. You can view superimposed onscreen the waveforms of the image being projected for automatic or manual adjustment. It is possible to place the calibration meter on the right hand square and get this colour correct on the CIE chart. With the PT-AE, the Lens Memory system can be automated, so that the projector automatically senses the aspect ratio of the source material, and will automatically adjust. The lens memory features are amazing.

So you would expect some difference in performance and quality levels, but how much? As such, the projector is still putting out light into a It offers a Lens Memory feature with effectively acts as an anamorphic lens emulation.


This year, they return with basically the same CFI with some minor improvement. Read about our review ethos and the meaning of our review badges. While some of you might be salivating at the prospect of all the fine-tuning flexibility the AE offers, many will doubtless ;t be feeling rather scared.

Mode 2 was a little more severe and ruined the look of the film material with overly smooth and panasoniv looking motion. Panasonic is manufacturing a new lamp for the PT-AE Watching everything in Color compliance reproduces natural, lifelike images. You can even monitor the results of your colour dabbling via a waveform monitor, and save the results of everything you’ve done in 16 picture-preset memory slots.

It’s undoubtedly functional and has very handy in dimensions for stand or shelf mounting. Intelligent Lens Memory with Auto Detection Up to six settings can be stored in the Lens Memory, including zoom and focus positions for projecting in the normal Picture Performance Using the preset Colour 1 with just the front panel controls set for the room, screen and source, the PT-AE offers a very impressive image panssonic looks extremely natural and very accurate.

Video material, again, was ok and there was no sign of any artefacts being introduced very often. This year, the Panasonic gains a lot, and is now pretty average — still a little on the low side, but way up from last year. Deep Color provides bit over 1. This panasoic is based on the unit using a new and improved optical set up with a full-HD-optimized lens unit comprising of 16 lens elements in 12 groups, including two large-diameter aspherical lenses and two high-performance ED extra low dispersion lenses.

There were a few more artefacts visible in fast moving scenes with Mode 3 but nothing that would spoil things more than the sped up look on film material.

Out of the Box Measurements So with all the new features explained and the projector set up with adjustments to the front panel controls it’s time to measure the picture performance of the best presets out of the box.

For me, being the purist I am, it was switched off on all film material. With a process called Hollywood Tuning, the Panasonic PT-AEU produces unadulterated images that reflect the artistic vision and intent of the director. While when speaking of CFI, the examples are often of smoothing a fast moving object, like a plane shooting across the screen. These memories can be recalled manually or can be set for automatic switching.


If you really want to go to town, you can call up a more in-depth colour management system that freezes the picture for paanasonic adjustment of all six of the primary colours.

This uses the double refraction property of crystals to arrange pixels on a screen with no gaps between them.

This helps the projector achieve a wide dynamic range with swift smoothness for added beauty in both dark and bright scenes. You can adjust the contrast and brightness of the red, green and blue colour elements, and adjust the gamma curve along no less than nine different points.
