2800-lm brightness from 280 W red-rich lamp
The PT-AR100 projector produces bright, sharp images by employing a high-power 280-W red-rich lamp and optical unit that combine to generate 2,800 lm of brightness for comfortable viewing in various lighting conditions.

Light harmonizer 3 produces quality in various lightings
Together with 2,800 lm of brightness, Panasonic's Light Harmonizer 3 technology assists the versatile use of the projector by automatically adjusting the picture quality of the image to match the living room or theater room conditions.

Cinema 1 mode offers Hollywood picture quality
Movies can be enjoyed in cinema 1 mode that has been tuned carefully to faithfully express the director's artistic intent. Panasonic has continued to work side by side with Hollywood experts to deliver this ideal image reproduction for viewing movies.

Game mode for stress-free playing
This mode improves signal processing for better response, allowing you to play games with minimal stress. It also reveals gradation in saturated areas to show details that are otherwise lost in very dark areas.

Sports mode with motion effect for sharp action scenes
In Sports mode, together with the motion effect feature, the PT-AR100 detects and extenuates detail on moving objects, resulting in intensified action with clearer, more highlighted players.

Dynamic iris pro delivers high 50,000:1 contrast ratio for deep blacks
This intelligent iris system works by analyzing the brightness level of each image using a histogram, then adjusting the lamp power, iris and gamma curve accordingly to create the ideal image. The adjustments are made virtually frame by frame.

Pure color filter pro for rich, vibrant colors
The optical filter optimizes the light spectrum from the UHM projector lamp, helping to produce deeper blacks while improving purity levels in the three primary colors. This advanced filter system improves color purity to cover a range that extends from the HDTV standard to the color gamut used in digital cinema.

Detail clarity processor 3 gives natural clarity to even the finest details
This digital image processing circuit brings greater clarity and sharpness to details, by reproducing fine nuances that were lost due to image compression. After a two dimensional analysis of the video signal's frequency in each scene, the circuit optimizes the sharpness of each image portion based on the extracted information.

Waveform monitor for precise calibration
When the output level of the source device fluctuates due to the performance of the device or its cable connections, the original black and white levels of the image content cannot be reproduced. With the PT-AR100, you can view the waveforms on the screen and adjust the settings either automatically or manually as you prefer.

Split adjust mode for easy picture adjustment
You can freeze any scene you wish, and then make adjustments while easily comparing the original image and the adjusted image side-by-side.

Advanced gamma adjustment function
The gamma curve can be flexibly controlled, allowing precise calibration according to the signal source and environment. Brightness, R, G and B can each be adjusted at any of nine points. Adjustment point positions can be shifted both horizontally and vertically to bring out the desired gradation level.

Cinema color management premium enables flexible color control
This color correction system enables free color control in two different modes. The point color correction mode lets you pick a point in the image and adjust that color without affecting the neighboring colors.

HDMI with x.v.Color and Deep Color
The PT-AR100 has two HDMI input terminals for digital transmission without image degradation. The HDMI input terminals also support Deep Color and the x.v.Color color space of the 1.3 standard. Deep Color provides 10-bit and 12-bit color depths for smooth gradation between colors, while x.v.Color compliance reproduces natural, lifelike images.

Programmable 12 V trigger for automated theater setup
Two 12 V triggers are provided. Since the input and output can be set independently (menu selectable), they can link flexibly with powered screens, room lights and powered curtains.

Eco management functions
A number of functions are provided to reduce power consumption. They adjust the brightness according to ambient light conditions, and reduce the lamp power when there is no signal input or the projector is in AV mute mode. You can easily set the eco management functions according to operating conditions by using the ECO button on the remote control.

Energy-saving intelligent lamp power control
Advanced Panasonic digital circuitry intelligently determines the necessary power output of the lamp depending on the content being displayed by analyzing more than 3 billion different image patterns. This advanced analysis process reduces the main power consumption by as much as 10 percent when the dynamic iris pro function is operating, thus saving energy.
