    I was just wondering what the state of play with regarding the Panasonic PTAE300 being future proof.
    I understand that HDTV and HDDVD are probably going to make an appearance in the near future and just wondered if the Panny is capable of handling it?

    As far as I can gather HDTV is twice the resolution of normal TV. Normal NTSC signals are converted into 480 for the projector.
    Now the Panasonic has a 960 * 540 panel, 480 X 2 = 960. Does this mean that the Panny can handle 960P no problem?

    It's pretty much designed around downsampling HDTV 1080i (1920x1080) down to 960x540 (Quarter HDTV).

    It'll also take 720P the other popular HDTV res (T2:EE etc).

    So yes it's quite happy to handle analogue HDTV. It however is not HDCP compliant over DVI so a digital HDTV connection is not possible (not that it'd like the resolutions anyway ;) ).

    Dunno about 960P ;)
