One pair of goggles...
... and a pack of Kleenex?
Panasonic has notched up some memorable firsts when it comes to home cinema projection. Not only was it the first brand to introduce a native 16:9 widescreen model, it led the way with Full HD too.

Yes, but aren't they moving on to newer technologies? Everyone else is.
The office ceiling mounted projector isn't new enough have all the HDMI inputs, but it has USB and Ethernet ports along with serial for the legacy connections.
All this new one has is serial.
Most systems are doing away with serial connections. Rare to find a PC with one for example.
£3000 is a high price, but one that I considered worthwhile. I have the earlier AT4000E which cost £2,500 retail a year or two back.
This gives me a device that creates a screen that is just shy of 3m diagonal in full HD, at a lower noise than any of its competitors when it was released. I can watch pretty much any movie I choose in the comfort of my own home, with cheap beer and snacks, on any format or source (DVD, Blu-ray or streaming from my media PC) in 7.2 sound (with my Onkyo AV amp). Allowing pausing of the show when the lady needs a comfort break, no concern or cost of baby-sitters and not least of all none of that crud that comes with sharing space with sweet wrapper scrunching, chattering hoi-polloi with big hats.
Last time we chose to visit a cinema, we shelled out over £50 for two, with snacks, fuel, parking... The picture and sound was worse, the chairs less comfortable, queues there, along with noisy f***ers.
I would recommend looking into it. How much would a 110" LCD or plasma cost?
That said, I would bother with 3D, it's sh**
