Panasonic's PT-LC75U XGA and PT-LC55U SVGA microportable LCD projectors are light, affordable and come with many features. Both units are convenient to set up thanks to a One-Touch Auto Setup function with digital keystone correction. The built-in gravity sensor determines the projectors' angle relative to the floor, and corrects for keystone distortion accordingly. The projectors handle all picture adjustments, from phasing and dot clocks to vertical and horizontal positioning. The units can project on screens ranging in size from 33" to 300". Both projectors offer 1,200 ANSI lumens of brightness and a large-diameter, extra-short throw lens that shortens the necessary projection distance by 25 percent.
The PT-LC75U features native XGA resolution, while the PT-LC55U offers native SVGA resolution. Both projectors include advanced resizing technology to support UXGA (PT-LC75U) and SXGA (PT-LC55U) resolutions. In addition, the projectors are equipped with two RGB inputs, and compatible with HDTV, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, SECAM, NTSC, M-NTSC and sRGB. Panasonic, (800) 528-8601, www.panasonic.com/presentations.
