Free App allows iOS devices to connect to projectors

(PresseBox) (Amsterdam, ) Panasonic Marketing Europe is using its presence at ISE in Amsterdam to introduce two new LCD projectors to the European professional AV industry. The PT-FW430 and PT-FX400 with 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" which provides users in higher education, exhibitions and museums as well as conference environments with more flexibility.

With this free application, images and files can 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 new dust-resistant design, "Eco filter" which removes dust from the cooling air and LCD panels which reduce image deterioration to maintain high image quality.

The eco-design of these models also greatly reduces environmental impact."
