The new Panasonic PT-AT6000 3D LCD Projector has just been announced at IFA in Berlin. You can watch the live feed on the home page of this site.

Steve Withers and Myself managed to get a sneek peak at the unit last week in Panasonic's new demo room at their UK HQ. We also shot a video with Rena Yotsu about the new features.

Here is the link to Steve's report.

Thanks Phil.

Just a heads up for other looking for the feed, its on the homepage of this site, not the IFA or Panasonic site. Or watch direct from Panasonic here http://ifa.panasonic.eu/en_GB/

Rather surprisingly, projectorcentral.com already has a (very glowing) review posted! In the states at least, it comes with two pairs of "third generation" 3d specs.

Seems like there has been no mention for the replacement for the PT-AH1000? Vague memory says that last year this also came later than the flagship. Anyone with a better memory out there?

The UK model (PT-AT6000E) will not come with any glasses - there 'may' be a promotion where you'll be able to claim 2 pairs (much like the current Plasma / LCD promo Panasonic are running) from the Panasonic UK website - this deal has yet to be confirmed.

Yes the PT-AH1000 was released after the PT-AT5000 - I haven't heard anything about a replacement for the 1000 yet.

Yeah, Panasonic have no plans to change the ptah1000 I feel it will be a two year product, as for the promotions on the ptat6000 we have not heard anything although the model is a couple of weeks late now.

No, I haven't heard anymore on a glasses promotion for the projector either - it was mentioned to me by the product manager when I went to see the 6000 in action at Bracknell, but haven't heard anything since.

Is there any plans of a launch at any of the sponsored advertisers, I have been to Roy Jowetts before to look at the JVC. There are usually offers on aswell for these at launch, any offers for members anyone?

Thanks

How does the lense shift on the 6000 work... can I align the projector higher than the screen or is the highest I can go along the top edge of the screen?

Will Samsung 3D glasses for the D series(bluetooth) Plasmas work for the Panasonic(or the new xx20 Epsons) projectors?

Can't answer the lens shift question, but the glasses for the new 6000 projector will still be IR glasses, not bluetooth glasses

Re: the Lens Shift, although I can't answer to the model specifically, on most Projectors with LS it allows you to move the image up/down/L/R typically a % of the image size. So with my JVC the screen can be shifted up 85% of the original image, and L/R 35% of the original image. I suspect the Panny is similar, but maybe you can find the manual online to confirm?

Lens shift for 3000 here if that helps, plenty of play up and down

Installing the PT-AE8000U is made easy with a 2x zoom lens and wide range of lens shift. The PT-AE8000U can project onto a 120-inch diagonal screen from as close as 11.8 feet or as far away as 23.6 feet. The projector can also be installed from the ceiling or mounted to a wall with +/- 100 percent vertical adjustment and +/- 26 percent horizontal adjustment.

Can you explain to me what +/- 100 percent vertical adjustment means? Does it mean I can place it from the top to the bottom, but not above(which would be "offset"?)?

If you look at the pic above it basically means if you have a 3 foot high screen you could mount it 3 foot above or below the screen as the picture shows.

Good review here

Panasonic AE8000U Home Theater Projector Review

Found this in it

Update September 12: We have received further information from Panasonic regarding the price of the AE8000 and its replacement lamps. We have also been told that Panasonic will offer consumers two free pairs of 3D glasses with the purchase of a Panasonic AE8000
The AE8000 is easily the best home theater projector Panasonic has ever released, and has the most natural and film-like image in both 2D and 3D yet seen on a Panasonic home theater model. The3D brightness boost makes the AE8000 a more exciting option for 3D fans.

Keep in mind that's the review for the AE8000 (US Model)and not the AT6000E (EU Model) ffers may differ in different territories.

I've been told these are coming in stock on Wednesday - does anyone have firm details with glasses etc
Yes, there are dealers out there who are getting stock this week, no word on offers out of Panasonic UK yet.

Looking forward to Phil's review of this one. Interesting that Panasonic aren't doing what the other big 2 seem to, namely introduce a series of pj's at different levels. It's just the at-6000, simple. All eggs in one feature packed pj.

The lumens are high, the 3d ought to be good and reviews across the cyber world and across the shore are very positive indeed. The pj isn't coming out with all the fanfare and euphoria that's been generated around the Sony and Jvc's but this really could be a dark horse! Yes, what hi -fi have rated it as product of the year and we could take the with a pinch of salt as this maybe the net result of a corporate lunch, conjecture I know!

I genuinely feel this is a great year for pj's though it may represent the last roll of the dice for many 1080p focussed machines.

i am very interested to see Phil's review as it the only review i look forward to when it comes to projectors as its a complete and detailed review compared to what hifi which just seems like a lazy review that anyone with minimum knowledge could come up with.

i have seen the jvc x35 and x55 in action but i wont make a decision just yet, because if the black levels on this panasonic as good as the jvc x35 i think i will have a very hard decision to make

Hopefully Phils review will be here in the next few days.
I think it will be very positive :)
The first batch for the pre order deal I mentioned are delivered on Tuesday but are all sold :-(
They also give a 5 year warranty.
