PT-LB90 Series ensures solid performance with a dust-resistant structure and a low standby power consumption of 0.9 W.
Dust Resistant Structure Minimizes Image Degradation
After a projector has been used for some time, dust particles that have entered the interior accumulate on the optical components and lower their performance. The LB90 Series prevents this with a unique dust-resistant structure. This package has touch-sensor controls that eliminate the gaps around conventional buttons, and a lens cover. The design also incorporates a cover that protects the zoom/focus ring when not in use. These features combine to help reduce dust entry. And they all work together with the high-performance Micro Cut Filter, which effectively traps dust particles, to minimize brightness degradation.
Daylight View 4 Offers Clear, Crisp Images Even in Bright Surroundings*
The PT-LB90 Series features Panasonic's Daylight View 4 technology. Sharp edges are achieved with the new "Edge Enhancer Control " and "Gamma Curve Control. " Remarkable detail is provided and perceived brightness and contrast are enhanced, so images appear crisp, vivid, 3-dimensional and easy to see even in brightly lit rooms. Daylight View 4 also includes a built-in ambient light sensor that automatically detects room brightness and adjusts operation accordingly.
* There is no actual change in the rated brightness or contrast ratio.
Low Standby Power Consumptions of 0.9 W**
The ecological design of the LB90 Series greatly reduces its environmental impact. In Standby Eco mode, power consumption is only 0.9 W*. This dramatic reduction brings standby power consumption down to about 1/3 the level of previous Panasonic models**. As examples of other environmental design features, no styrofoam is used in packing materials, no halogenated flame retardants are used in the cabinet, lead-free glass is used for the lens, and an Auto Off Timer switches the projector to Standby mode when no input signal is received for a preset time. The LB90 Series also complies with the standards of the RoHS Directive***;
* In Standby Eco mode, network functions such as Standby On via LAN are not available, and only certain commands can be received from RS-232C control.
** Reduced from 3 W in the PT-LB80NT to 0.9 W in the PT-LB90NT.
*** Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances. The specified toxic substances used in the electrical and electronic equipment that is manufactured and distributed within Europe are controlled (the six substances are lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and polybrominated diphenyl esters (PBDE)), and all Panasonic projectors comply with the standards of the European RoHS Directive.
Quick and Easy Set-Up for Flexible Presentations
The Wireless Manager ME5.5 application provided with the projector allows easy transfer of data from the screen of a personal computer through a wireless*/cable LAN connection. It can be used to transfer both audio** and video*** files. The application is supported by Windows® 2000/XP/Vista®/7 and Macintosh OS (OS X Ver. 10.4/10.5/10.6) so that it can be installed and used in a wide range of computers. When a wireless LAN* connection is used, there is no need to connect a VGA cable between the computer and projector; therefore, it allows easy and speedy setup, and a flexible system layout. This frees the presenter from having to stay close to the operating console, so he or she can walk around the room with the notebook PC in hand or move to the audience area. This allows more flexible and effective presentations. The projector can also display images transferred from multiple computers, for smoother progress in large conferences with many participants.
* If the computer is not equipped with a wireless LAN function, a wireless LAN card is required. In the case of Macintosh computers, only the built-in wireless LAN function is supported. Network functions such as Live mode and Multi-Live mode can also be used with a cable LAN.
** Windows® 7/Vista® computers must be logged on to using the Administrator's account.
*** DVD video, Blu-ray video and content set with DRM (Digital Rights Management) cannot be transferred.
Multi Live Mode: Wireless Projection from Multiple PCs
The PT-LB90NT provides a host of convenient wireless functions, including Live mode and Multi- Live mode. In Live mode, the image projected is identical to the image seen on the PC screen. In Multi-Live mode, you can wirelessly connect with multiple PCs.
Other wireless functions include Wireless Prompter (Secondary Display Transmission), selective area transmission, and a 16-window index style that lets you project images from up to 16 PCs at the same time. Wireless transmission is possible from one PC to a maximum of eight projectors at a time.
Projector Signal Map
The Projector Signal Map graphically displays all of the presently connectable projectors in three steps that indicate the strength of the wireless signals between the projectors and your computer. This lets you easily search for the projectors you want even when wireless projectors are being used in adjacent conference rooms or classrooms.
Easy Remote Operation
A Web browser on a computer connected through a wireless* or wired LAN system lets you remotely operate projectors and check their status. An e-mail messaging function can also notify you when a lamp needs replacement, and indicate the overall projector status. In addition, Multi Projector Monitoring and Control Software is available free of charge for monitoring and controlling several Panasonic projectors from a single PC. The wired LAN terminal is compatible with PJLink™(Class1), an open protocol that is used by many manufacturers, to enable integrated control of systems that contain different brands of projectors.
* If your computer does not have a wireless LAN function, it will require a wireless LAN card. Only Macintosh computers with a built-in LAN function can be used.
Wireless Transmission Also Possible* From and iPad or iPhone
Panasonic Wireless Projector for iOS is an iOS application that lets you send PDF files and JPEG images from an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch over a wireless connection. JPEG images saved onto an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, and PDF files transferred to the Panasonic Wireless Projector for iOS application via iTunes can be sent. Easy touch screen operation also lets you rotate, enlarge, or reduce images (using a pinch operation), and flip through pages (using a flick operation). Now you can give the kind of smart presentations that are simply not possible with conventional projectors.
• Panasonic Wireless Projector for iOS can be downloaded for free from the App Store.
• For operating details, see the iPad/iPhone/iPod touch Application Guide.
* Applicable Models: iPad(First Generation)/iPhone (3GS/4)/iPod touch (3rd and 4th Generation); Applicable OS: OS4.1/4.2
Convenient and Easy Functions for Portable Use
The compact, lightweight body (approximately 2.96 kg (6.5 lbs)) makes it easy to move the projector from one classroom or conference room to another.
• With Speed Start, the image appears in about three seconds* after you press the power button.
• Auto Setup automatically corrects the image position, dot clock and clock phase when the projector’s input signal changes.
• Auto Signal Search automatically detects what kind of source is connected and begins projection**.
• With Real-Time Keystone Correction, the projector automatically senses if you adjust its angle (in the vertical direction) during operation and instantly makes whatever keystone correction is necessary for optimal viewing.
• Whiteboard and Blackboard modes are convenient when projecting in rooms that don’t have a screen.
• Direct Power Off uses accumulated power to keep the cooling fan operating until the lamp is cooled, so you can disconnect the power cable immediately after use.
• A soft carrying case with shoulder belt is supplied.
* With the Startup Logo function turned off.
** Searches for approximately 3 minutes after the power is turned on.
Convenient Functions for Ceiling-Mounted Use
Versatile interfaces: Interfaces include two computer (RGB) inputs, a wired LAN terminal*, and a serial (RS-232C) terminal for external control. The serial terminal has an emulator function that lets you continue using existing control systems when replacing a previous Panasonic model. It is also possible to output audio during Standby mode. This is convenient when connecting an external audio system** through the projector. The lamp can be easily replaced from the rear panel without having to remove the projector from the ceiling mounting bracket. Direct Power Off lets you turn off the room’s main power switch without turning off the projector, so you can leave the room right after a meeting ends.
* Only on the PT-LB90NT.
** Requires speakers and an audio amplifier.
Effective Theft Prevention with the Startup Logo
You can change the Panasonic logo that is displayed when projection begins to any logo you want. Easily upload the logo by connecting a computer to the LB90 Series through a LAN* or serial connection and using the free Logo Transfer Software**. An abundance of other security measures are also included, such as a security anchor, a user password, a control panel lock, and text superimposing.
* Only the PT-LB90NT is compatible.
** This software is available at here. Uploadable still images are limited to 1024 X 768 pixel bitmap files. Also, the application will reduce the number of colors to 191.
Quiet, 29-dB* Slience Design
The 29-dB silence design keeps the sound of the cooling fan whisper soft. This helps to hold people’s attention on the presenter’s discussion or screen image during quiet scenes.
* With the lamp power in Eco mode.
Easy to use Remote Control
The large buttons and long operating range of the wireless remote control make it easy to use. With Live mode on the PT-LB90NT, you can also shift between Microsoft® Power- Point® pages by remote control. Plus, a frequently used function can be assigned to the Function button (located on both the remote and the main unit) for instant recall.
Index Window*: You can split the screen into two windows, right and left, and display a frozen (still) image in one and a real-time action image in the other. Digital Zoom: Expands selected parts of the display up to three times their original size**.
• AV mute: Temporarily turns off both the image and the sound.
• Selectable 17-language on-screen menu.
* Cannot be used during wireless projection.
** Up to two times their original size when using video/S-video signal input.
