The range comprises of the PT-VW355N (WXGA, 4,000 lumens) and PT-VX425N (XGA, 4,500 lumens) as well as two non-network variants in the shape of the PT-VX350 (WXGA, 4,000 lumens) and PT-VX42O (XGA, 4,500 lumens), both with similar base specification.

By using Panasonic wireless application software screen projection from multiple PCs (up to 16 units*4) and simultaneous wireless transmission from one PC to multiple projectors is possible.
The projectors have a lamp replacement cycle of 5,000 hours (7,000 hours in eco-mode) and a filter replacement cycle of 7,000 hours. The LCD projector series is to be released in May 2015.
