When the PT-AE7000U home theater projector starts selling next month, it will have an MSRP of $3,499. Part of that price tag will include new image processing technology that’s designed to boost the projector’s LCD chipset and result in a better image.

With the introduction the PT-AE7000U 3D projector, Panasonic is breaking new ground. Not only is the company one of the few manufacturers to be offering an LCD-based 3D projector product, but the PT-AE7000U is actually at a price point that’s approachable to consumers.

According to Panasonic, the PT-AE7000U is the only 3D projector to use a 480Hz refresh rate to drive its LCD panels. As a result, it can produce “stunning large screen 2D images, as well as an immersive 3D viewing experience for home theater viewers.”

The projector’s 3D technologies were developed in collaboration with Panasonic’s Hollywood Laboratory engineers, who helped the filmmaking community to develop 3D industry standards. The company specifies the 1080p PT-AE7000U to produce a contrast ratio of 300,000:1 and its brightness rating to reach as high as 2,000 lumens.
