Panasonic PT-VW540U 5500-Lumen WXGA 3LCD Projector

Enjoy bright images in many everyday settings with the Panasonic PT-VW540U 5500-Lumen WXGA 3LCD Projector. Its 5500 lumens of brightness and 16,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio will work together to overcome light in relatively bright rooms and provide detail in dark areas of the image. It sports a 1280 x 800 WXGA native resolution for viewing HD video and detailed pictures or data. The projector's 1.08 to 1.76:1 throw ratio and 1.6x manual zoom provide a range of throw distances for focused images.

The PT-VW540U features RCA composite video, two HDMI, and two VGA inputs to connect to nearly any device. Its analog audio input and output will allow you to pass sound through the projector to your sound system of choice, and one VGA input can instead act as an output to daisy-chain multiple projectors or displays together. The PT-VW540U is controllable via the included remote control or Ethernet, with various control software options.


Designed for Bright, High-Quality Images

The WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution native to the PT-VW540U brings HD imagery to meeting spaces and classrooms for immersive viewing. With 5500 lumens of brightness and a dynamic contrast ratio of 16,000:1, your audience will enjoy legible text and detailed colors.

6-Color Adjustment and Color Correction Functions

Users can correct for slight color variations in the reproduction range of individual projectors set up for multi-projection. This is particularly useful for side-by-side configurations; large images can be seamlessly presented in auditoriums and boardrooms.

Low-Maintenance Design

The PT-VW540U is designed for enhanced efficiency. Its air filter replacement cycle is up to 7000 hours, and the filter can be washed and reused twice to minimize waste. Lamp life is also extended to 7000 hours in ECO2 Mode, meaning part replacement can be performed together to reduce downtime.

Daylight View Basic

This technology is designed to deliver sharp, comfortably viewed images by enhancing fine details, particularly in dark areas of the image, which are typically difficult to see in brightly lit rooms. A built-in sensor measures ambient light while Daylight View Basic (when set to AUTO Mode) adjusts halftone color and brightness to suit ambient illumination.

Designed for Quiet Operation

The projector's technologies combine to keep noise levels down to just 29 dB in ECO2 Mode, so the sound of the cooling fan is hardly noticeable, helping to keep attention focused on the presentation and video scenes.

1.6x Zoom Lens and Lens Shift Function

The zoom lens allows you to project from a range of distances from tabletops or ceilings. Use the vertical lens shift to adjust the image position without distortion.

Designed for Quick Lamp and Filter Replacement

To reduce hassle, the filter can be replaced via the side and the lamp from the top of the projector, so there's no need to remove the projector from its ceiling mount for periodic maintenance.

Auto Screen Image Rotation

Images can automatically be rotated depending on installation orientation – upside down from the ceiling or set on a table – using a built-in angle sensor.

Horizontal, Vertical, and Corner Keystone Correction

Horizontal, vertical, and corner keystone correction adjusts the image shape for clear visibility when projecting off-axis or from an unusual angle.
