Passive system designed to respond to growing demand for 3D projection, especially in hospitality and education markets
SECAUCUS, N.J. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 20, 2011 — Panasonic Solutions Company, provider of collaboration, information-sharing and decision-support solutions for government and commercial enterprises, today announced it is previewing a passive 3D Projection System (PT-PJ3D53) during the NRA SHOW 2011, in DIRECTV’s booth #1868.
This 3D projection package is perfect for public venues, such as sports bars and restaurants, as well as educational institutions, among many other corporate environments.
“Earlier this year, we projected the College Football Championship in 3D,” said Gene Rotondo, owner of Legend’s Sports Bar, Long Beach, California. “Our guests received a pair of 3D glasses and had an incredible game experience while watching the action on the silver screen. Panasonic created a new experience for the sports fans who got to see their favorite teams in action like never before.”
The offering consists of two PT-DW530U DLP projectors, a dual-projector stacking frame, a pair of circular polarizers, 100 pairs of circularly-polarized glasses, 133” diagonal silver screen, as well as additional components needed to setup the system. The Panasonic 3D Projection System relies on the two PT-DW530U projectors to transmit video to the screen and deliver a unique perspective for a specific eye. Each projector lens is attached to its own polarized filter. The viewer needs to wear glasses, which do not contain any electronic parts and use passive polarized filters. The value of passive systems is that facility owners and managers do not need to worry about the loss or theft of glasses, which are cost-effective and readily available in the market today.
“3D applications, market demand and broadcast programming are growing at a remarkable pace and Panasonic’s PT-PJ3D53 is our response to this trend,” said Art Rankin, Director of the Higher Education Sector and Head of the Projector Division at Panasonic Solutions Company. “The offering appeals to every organization that is looking to enhance its operations and to remain competitive in this fast-paced market. Schools that create 3D learning environments will have higher appeal for incoming students, while hospitality institutions that offer their guests a new experience will draw bigger crowds. The new offering, coupled with proven product reliability, gives Panasonic’s customers the highest ROI for their 3D projection deployments.”
The PT-PJ3D53 3D Projection System will be available in Summer 2011 through authorized Panasonic resellers, at an estimated MSRP of $24,999.
