Inorganic LCD Materials Maintain High Brightness and Image Quality Longer
The optical block of the PT-EW730 projectors maintains a high level of performance over time, due to the use of inorganic materials in the LCD panels and polarizers, thus achieving a replacement cycle of 10,000 hours with high brightness and excellent picture quality.
It also makes them the logical choice for a truly dependable LCD projector system.
Flexible Installation and System Integration
DIGITAL LINK Translits Digital Signals up to 100m with a single cable.
Equipped with a DIGITAL LINK terminal, the PT-EW730 allows transmission of HDMI, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals (Ethernet, RS-232C) for up to 100 metres through a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher. This simplifies cabling and system upgrades, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations.
Optional ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box for Easy Setup
By combining the optional ET-YFB100G Digital Interface Box, with its HDMI and other input terminals, uncompressed HD digital video, audio and control signals can be transmitted up to 100m over a single CAT5e (STP) cable or higher. It allows projector connection with only one cable, making it ideal for ceiling-mounted and other permanent installations.
Also, because control signals can be simultaneously transmitted, the ET-YFB100G input signal can easily be switched with the wireless remote control that is included with the projector. The projector can be controlled by either serial or LAN communication.
Also Supports Other Manufacturers' Peripheral Equipment
DIGITAL LINK is an original function added to technology based on the transmission standards used in Crestron’s DigitalMedia 8G+, Extron’s XTP Systems, etc. Signals from the ET-YFB100G can also be relayed to a non-DIGITAL LINK-ready projector by using another manufacturer’s equipment based on the same technology.*
* Input selection and other ET-YFB100G operations can be performed only when connecting to a DIGITAL LINK compatible projector.
The wide adjustment range of the powered horizontal/vertical lens shift function assures convenience and versatility during installation. It lets you easily make adjustments with the remote control.

Lower Maintenance and Running Costs
A Dust-Resistant Cabinet Design and an Eco Filter that Needs No Replacement for 15,000 Hours
The cabinet is designed with a straight airflow path, from intake to exhaust.
The shielding of the lens section, where dust is likely to enter, has been further improved to keep dust out. And the sealing performance of the air filter unit and air intake duct has been increased to prevent the entry of dust from the filter periphery, resulting in a highly dust-resistant structure.
The Eco Filter unit, which efficiently captures dust in the intake airflow path, requires no replacement for up to15,000 hours.* This large, pleated Micro Cut Filter (electrostatic filter) uses an ion effect to trap minute dust particles, further raising the overall dust-trapping capability.
These features minimize the entry of dust into the optical block and maintain brightness over a long period of time, while reducing the hassle of maintenance. Also, in addition to achieving a long replacement cycle, the Eco Filter can be washed with water** and reused as an environmental consideration.
* The usage environment affects the duration of the filter.
** When washing with water, please follow the procedures listed in the operating instructions. Also, we recommend replacing the filter with a new one after it has been washed and reused twice. If the filter is not sufficiently clean after washing, replace it with a new one.
Lamp Replacement Cycle of up to 4,500hours*
The PT-EW730 projectors feature a lamp replacement cycle of up to 4,500 hours.*
This helps to lower operating costs by providing longer usage between lamp replacements.
* This is the maximum value when the lamp power is set to Eco2. Increases in the lamp on cycle or extended use with the lamp continuously turned on will shorten the lamp replacement cycle. When the lamp power is set to Eco1, the lamp replacement cycle is 4,000 hours and 3,000 hours when setting to Normal. The usage environment affects the lamp replacement cycle.
Intelligent Lamp Control System Reduces Power Consumption
When the lamp power is set to Auto, the Intelligent Lamp Control system automatically adjusts the lamp output in accordance with the brightness of the projected image and reduces it by up to 58 %*. It also combines with color shift correction, which corrects the shift in the color balance that occurs when the lamp output drops. As a result, power consumption is effectively reduced while excellent color reproduction is maintained.
* With the lamp power set to Auto.
Eco Management Functions
A number of functions are provided to reduce power consumption. They adjust the brightness according to ambient light conditions, and reduce the lamp power when there is no signal input. You can easily set the Eco Management functions according to operating conditions by using the ECO button on the remote control.
Easy Lamp and Air Filter Replacement
For easy maintenance, you can replace the filter from the side and the lamp from the top of the projector.
The filter and lamp are easily replaced even after the projector is installed on the ceiling.
Quiet 29-dB* Design Does Not Interrupt Meetings or Classes
The quiet design keeps noise levels down to 29 dB,* so the sound of the cooling fan is hardly noticeable. This helps the audience to keep their attention on the speech when someone is giving a presentation or on the screen images during quiet scenes.
* With the lamp power set to Eco2. 31 dB with lamp power set to Eco1. 37 dB with lamp power set to Normal.
