Panasonic modules allow wireless projection

Panasonic has launched two new LCD projectors, the PT-FW430 and PT-FX400, with wireless device projection capabilities.

The optional ET-WM200 Wireless Module will allow wireless projection through the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, using a new free application “Panasonic Wireless Projector for iOS”.

The application allows images and files to be opened on the touch screen and displayed by the projector without requiring a PC or a VGA cable. The two new models will also feature a dust-resistant design, “Eco filter” which is designed to remove dust from the cooling air and LCD panels which reduce image deterioration to maintain high image quality.

The PT-FW430 series has a 2× zoom lens and manual horizontal/vertical lens. With the app, the touch screen can be used to zoom the projected image in or out. Panasonic Wireless Projector for iOS will be compatible with iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices with iOS 4.1/4.2.

Available in May 2011, the PT-FW430 has a resolution of WXGA (1,280 x 800) and 3,500 lumens of brightness while the PT-FX400 offers XGA (1,024 x 768) resolution and 4,000 lumens of brightness.
