The new 3.3 lb. PT-LM1U ultraportable SVGA LCD projector from Panasonic (www.panasonic.com/projectors) delivers 1,200 ANSI lumens of brightness, as well as a bevy of timesaving and antitheft functions. The PT-LM1U produces high-contrast (400:1 ratio) images at a crisp, sharp native SVGA resolution, while offering advanced resizing technology to support UXGA. Using artificial intelligence (in high-lamp power mode), the projector instantaneously adjusts lamp brightness to optimize on-screen imaging. The projector includes an Index Window, which allows any image in a presentation to be frozen, stored in memory and displayed on the left side of the screen while display of subsequent images continues on the right. Other features of the PT-LM1U include a powerful 3X digital zoom, HDTV compatibility, and discrete S-Video and video inputs for connecting two video sources simultaneously.
