3D Picture balance
With regards to the left eye and right eye video of the 3D recording, the difference in the video signal for the right eye can be adjusted based on that of the left eye.
3D Viewing monitor (Adjust depth-of-field)
The projection size for viewing 3D images can be selected from among 9 different sizes, ranging from 40 to 200 inches diagonally.*1 The parallax adjustment monitor function automatically detects and adjusts the amount of parallax in the left eye and right eye 3D input signals. As well, the 3D Viewing monitor ensures the depth of field is within the comfortable zone with a graphical representation and makes adjustments accordingly.
Built-in 3D IR transmitter
The PT-AE7000 comes equipped with a built-in 3D IR transmitter. The IR signals for controlling the 3D eyewear transmitted from the 3D IR transmitter reach the 3D eyewear after being reflected by the screen. The communication range between the 3D IR transmitter and 3D eyewear is a maximum distance of 6 m (approx. 18’9” feet).*1*2
Frame Creation 2 (Motion blur reduction in 3D/2D viewing)
A double-speed display greatly improves the clarity of motion images. In addition, “Frame Creation 2” interpolates one new frame for each existing frame by analyzing the characteristics of the adjacent frames to reproduce sharp and clear images for fast moving scenes in sports and action movies. For 24p signal input, four frames are calculated and interpolated for each existing frame, to enable 5x speed (120 Hz) display.
Frame sequential technology (Precisely tuned 3D projection)
Panasonic uses full HD frame sequential technology to create its 3D images. Images recorded at 1920 x 1080 pixels for both the right-eye and left-eye alternately flash on the screen at the ultra-high rate of 120 frames per second. When you view the screen through active-shutter glasses, that open and close each lens in sync with the alternating images, you see breathtaking FULL HD 3D pictures with stunning power and realism.
LCD Panels (480 Hz) and Overdrive technology
Although it is inherently difficult to attain brightness in 3D images while minimizing crosstalk, the PT-AE7000 achieves both bright and comfortable 3D images by the incorporation of 480 Hz driven LCD panels and Panasonic's original high-precision overdrive technology. The 480 Hz driven LCD panels lengthen the time that the shutter is open, about 1.5 times the duration of a 240 Hz drive system. With original overdrive technology, brightness is improved thru the 3D eyewear by accurately detecting the information for each of the right eye and left eye images. Panasonic is able to minimize double images (crosstalk), which results in clear, comfortable 3D viewing and it feels as though you’re totally immersed in the picture.
This function displays waveforms to show how the projector has adjusted the images of the input signals sent from the source device. In cases where the output level of the source device fluctuates, you can view the waveform on-screen and adjust the settings both automatically and manually. In cases where the characteristics of the output signal from the source device are distorted, viewing the waveform can make it easier for you to adjust the picture so it looks just the way the director intended.
