The newly-developed optical engine produces a 300,000:1 contrast ratio and 2,000 lumens of brightness. The PT-AE7000 delivers both 2D images and a 3D viewing experience at home. With this new launch, 2D to 3D image conversion is also possible with an option of five 3D effect modes to select from. The PT-AE7000 uses frame sequential technology for 3D image projection and comes equipped with a built-in 3D transmitter that allows the user to view 3D images with optional eyewear.
Along with this, Panasonic has also launched their LCD home theater projector, the PT-AR100. The main difference between these two products is 3D capability. The Panasonic PT-AE7000 is available in the market for Rs. 250,000 and is backed by two years warranty, while the AR100 is available at a price of Rs. 1,60,000 with the same two year warranty.
