Panasonic Projector PT-D4000E
4,000-lumen, 1-chip DLP™ Projector
Further expanding reliability and picture quality
Panasonic's DLP™ system projectors have taken another step forward. Now they produce even better images while maintaining all of their highly reliable functions. Visibility has been improved in rooms with the lights turned on, and durability has been increased with the new AC lamp.

High brightness and high picture quality
Ultra bright 4,000-lm - The PT-D4000E offers 4,000 lumens of brightness, thanks to the newly developed AC lamp and more efficient reflectors and synthetic mirror. Real-life images are also produced in rooms with the lights turned on.
System daylight view - The system daylight view function uses an image processing circuit to compensate for the loss of colour saturation that occurs when light reflects onto the screen from bright surroundings. It is especially effective for producing crisp, sharp images in dark portions containing gradation. The function can be adjusted in three steps.
Full 10-bit picture processing - The use of a full 10-bit image processing system provides smooth tonal expression. For example, skin tones appear natural and true to life.
New IP conversion circuit - The PT-D4000E features a new IP conversion circuit that produces more detailed images than previous models.
More effective noise reduction - Images are noticeably clearer, thanks to higher-performance frame noise reduction, which lowers image graininess, and improved MPEG noise reduction, which suppresses the block noise and mosquito noise that are common in fast-action scenes.
Progressive cinema scan (3/2 Pulldown) - This interlace/progressive conversion technology automatically detects when the input signal is derived from filmed material and selects the optimum progressive processing method to assure faithful reproduction of the original image.
3D colour management system - Compensation provides optimal levels of colour saturation, hue, and brightness that were not possible with conventional projectors. Colours approach those of the original image, even on large-screen displays.
Dynamic sharpness control - The dynamic sharpness control circuit adjusts the video signal waveforms based on the difference in brightness of adjacent pixels for a sharp, clear picture that is relatively unaffected by signal noise.
Dual lamp system - The use of two lamp systems increases brightness and eliminates the need to interrupt a presentation if a lamp burns out (in dual lamp operation mode).
AC lamp - Newly developed AC lamps with full 210 watts of power offer excellent brightness and greater reliability than other types. A new lamp drive system also lowers the stress on the lamp electrodes while the lamps are lit. The new lamps have a lifetime of approximately 3,000 hours, which is reassuring for applications where the projector is frequently used. The AC lamps also minimise colour irregularities.
Liquid-cooling system - Panasonic's original liquid-cooling system directly cools the DLP™ chip, which extends PT-D4000E performance and attains a high level of reliability. It also enables operation in temperatures up to 45°C/113°F for use in a wider variety of environments, and maintains a more stable performance even in harsh conditions while keeping the operating sound down to a quiet 29 dB (with lamp mode: low).
Micro cut filter - A filter in the air intake section traps dust particles that are 10 microns (10-micron dust = lint, pollen, etc.) or larger. By capturing approximately 7 times as much dust as conventional filters, it guards against optical blocks and reduces the penetration of dust into to the interior to provide stable operation by, for example, preventing drops in brightness.
Dust-Resistant Optical Block - The dust-resistant design of the optical block helps ensure that 3-chip projectors with DLP™ technology will continue to deliver crisp, sharp, high resolution images over an extended service life.
Flexible system installation
Lens-centred design - A lens-centred, symmetrical design provides flexible system layout, eliminating the need for any special considerations when planning the installation site.
Horizontal/Vertical lens shift - A wide adjustment range of the horizontal/ vertical lens shift assures distortion free images and adds convenience and versatility. (Horizontal : manual, Vertical : powered)
Optional lenses for various venues - Five optional lenses with different throw distances are available in addition to the supplied lens. These powered zoom/focus lenses enable the projectors to perform superbly in an array of projection environments.
Multiple terminals - The PT-D4000E has an array of terminals - two RGB inputs including a 5-BNC connector, serial in/out, one S-video input, two remote in, one remote out, DVI-D (HDCP [High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection] compliant), and control capability - to support a broad range of projection needs. Using the serial terminal (RS232C), it is also possible to connect and operate AMX and Crestron control systems with ease.
Web browser control/monitoring and e-mail message alert - Anybody can operate the PT-D4000E by remote control or monitor its status over a LAN network, because it is all done using the computer’s familiar Web browser. Furthermore, the PT-D4000E sends an E-mail message to notify the operator when an error has occurred, or a lamp needs to be replaced.
Control panel and wireless remote control - The rear control panel allows for easy operation when the PT-D4000E is set on a desk or floor. New wireless remote control with longer transmission capacity of 30 m.
PJLink™ compatibility - The LAN terminals support PJLink™ class 1 connections. Control with the same specifications is also possible when used in a multi-projector system with projectors of another brand.
Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software - Panasonic's original ''Multi Projector Monitoring & Control Software'' freeware allows the user to control and monitor multiple projectors via LAN. When a problem occurs, an alarm message is sent to the controlling/monitoring PC.
Easy lens replacement - The PT-D4000E uses the bayonet system, so lenses attach and detach with one-touch ease.
