Panasonic Projector PT-LB80 Series
Elegant Styling, All-Round Versatility
Style, Features and Convenience
Panasonic’s new LCD projectors— PT-LB80NTEA and PT-LW80NTEA—are ideal for anyone who wants an easy-to-use projector but doesn’t want to compromise on image quality and performance. The highly advanced dust-resistant design minimizes image degradation by reducing the entry of dust into the unit. The design includes “gapless” touch-sensor controls on the top panel and an airtight structure that concentrates the air intake into a single location. Panasonic’s original Daylight View 4 feature provides bright, crisp images even in brightly lit conditions. The PT-LB80NTU and PT-LW80NTEA also include an easy-to-use wireless function. In short, the PT-LB80NTEA and PT-LW80NTEA incorporate the unique essence and versatility of Panasonic projector technologies while maintaining an elegant design.

Dust-Resistant Design and Full-Featured Performance
Dust-Resistant Structure Minimises Image Degradation
After a projector has been used for some time, dust particles that have entered the interior accumulate on the optical components and lower performance. The PT-LB80NTEA/LW80NTEA prevents this with a unique dust-resistant design. This totally redesigned package has touch-sensor controls that eliminate the gaps around conventional buttons and a lens cover. The design also incorporates a cover that protects the zoom/focus ring when not in use. These features combine to help reduce dust entry. Inside the projector, the airflow is efficiently controlled by a structure that reduces contact between external air and the optical components. This all works together with the high-performance Micro Cut Filter to minimize image degradation.
Daylight View 4 Offers Clear, Crisp Images Even in Bright Surroundings* 2 - The PT-LB80NTEA/LW80NTEA features Panasonic’s Daylight View 4 technology. Sharp edges are achieved with the new “Edge Enhancer Control” and “Gamma Curve Control.” Remarkable detail is provided and perceived brightness and contrast are enhanced, so images appear crisp, vivid, 3-dimensional and easy to see even in brightly lit rooms. Daylight View 4 also includes a built-in ambient light sensor that automatically detects room brightness and adjusts operation accordingly.
*2 There is no actual change in the rated brightness or contrast ratio.
Versatile Wireless Presentation
Easy Wireless Projection - With the wireless capability of the PT-LB80NTEA and PT-LW80NTEA, you don’t need cables to connect a PC, either Windows® or Mac®. That means it’s easy to bring in a laptop (with a wireless LAN function) and deliver a smooth, hassle-free presentation. You can make the connection settings quickly and easily using the supplied Wireless Manager ME 5.0 software. When the presentation is finished, Wireless Manager restores the PC to its previous LAN settings, so the PC is ready to reconnect to your LAN.
Multi Live Mode: Wireless Projection from Multiple PCs - The PT-LB80NTEA and PT-LW80NTEA provide a host of convenient wireless functions, including Live mode and Multi-Live mode. In Live mode, the image projected is identical to the image seen on the PC screen. In Multi-Live mode, you can wirelessly connect with multiple PCs. Other wireless functions include Wireless Prompter (Secondary Display Transmission), selective area transmission, and a 16-window index style that lets you project images from up to 16 PCs at the same time. Wireless transmission is possible from one PC to a maximum of eight projectors at a time.
Selective Area Transmission - By circling any area of the image, you can specify the necessary information to enlarge and display that area on the projection screen.
Projector Signal Map - The signal map graphically shows the strength of wireless connection signals. This is convenient, for example, when several projectors are being used in adjacent school classrooms because it lets the user know which projector is to be used.
Extended Mac OS X Compatibility - In addition to its Windows Vista® compatibility, Wireless Manager ME 5.0 is fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.4/10.5 except for the Wireless Prompter (Secondary Display Transmission) function.
Ease of Use
Elegant, Compact Design - The PT-LB80NTEA/LW80NTEA has a sleek and elegant appearance that matches its high-performance capabilities. The projector blends well with virtually any room interior, whether it is placed on a desktop or mounted on the ceiling. At 2.96 kg, its lightweight and compact design also make it easy to move around.
Quiet Operation - The PT-LB80NTEA/LW80NTEA’s operating noise is reduced to 29 dB, (in Eco mode) which minimises noise interruptions during meetings or lectures.
Quick Operation.Three-Second Speed Start: With Speed Start, the image appears in about three seconds after you press the power button.
Auto Search: When a source is connected and you switch the unit on, it automatically detects what kind of source is connected and begins projection.
Real-Time Keystone Correction: The projector automatically senses if you adjust its angle (vertical direction) during operation and instantly makes whatever keystone correction is necessary for optimum viewing.
Direct Power Off: Because the cooling fan keeps operating until the lamp is cooled, you can disconnect the power cable and move the projector as soon as your presentation is finished, or turn off the room's main power when the unit is mounted on the ceiling.
Ceiling-Installation Capability - The projector can be permanently installed on the ceiling by using the optional ET-PKB80 ceiling mount bracket.
Abundant Connection Terminals - Designed for versatility, each projector comes equipped with a host of connection terminals. The RS-232C specifications are the same as in previous Panasonic models, so replacement is quick and easy.
Easy Lamp Replacement from the Rear - For easier maintenance, you can replace the lamp from the rear. The lamp is easily replaced even after the projector is installed on the ceiling.
