Sanyo announced the high-luminance PLC-XF47 and PLC-XP100L LCD Projectors, which will offer the exclusive PJ-Net Organizer Plus C for monitoring projector functions remotely.
Sanyo’s two new high-luminance projectors are equipped with redesigned optical engines and networking features. “Sanyo has always lead the industry in value-priced, high brightness projectors for large venues but the PLC-XF47 takes us to a new level with optional non-compressed HD wireless capabilities,” says Mark Holt, the vice president and general manager for Sanyo’s Presentation Technologies Division. “The PLC-XP100L breaks ground as the brightest LCD projector in its class with some exciting new maintenance features.”
The PLC-XF47 is the brightest professional-grade LCD projector in the industry with 15,000 lumens, and it is completely compatible with throwing extra-large images to meet the needs of large gatherings, conferences and special events. In the unlikely event that the lamp burns out, the projector is equipped with a failsafe feature to ensure the image is not interrupted.
In addition to wired networking capabilities, the PLC-XF47 is the first Sanyo projector to provide a complete HD-Wireless System, which is capable of receiving uncompressed 720p and1080i data wirelessly, from distances approximately 100ft. away with less than 1 millisecond of latency. The system is robust enough to provide independent frame-by-frame transmissions. It fully supports video data rates of up to 1.5Gbps and operates in the 20MHz bandwidth (conforming to worldwide 5GHz regulations). To accommodate projection in a variety of locations, the PLC-XF47 accepts up to twelve different lenses to adjust for room and screen size.
The Hybrid Crosstalk Canceller eliminates ghosting of images and reduces signal interference on the LCD panels. Intelligent Sharpness Control automatically analyzes the signal components to select the best sharpness setting for clearer sharper pictures. For increased flexibility, the PLC-XF47 uses the Multi-Versatile Interface Platform, which accommodates a wide variety of exchangeable interface boards allowing user to select the best solution for the desired application. The PLC-XF47 is available in October for $29,995.
The PLC-XP100L uses a single 330W lamp, which results in the brightest portable LCD projector with 6500 lumens. Sanyo equipped the PLC-XP100L with a full 10-bit video circuit for extraordinary picture quality. This lighter and more mobile projector is equipped with the exclusive Active Maintenance Filter System that automatically detects airflow and advances clean filter material when needed. The result is less maintenance and increased reliability. Using this system, filter cartridges can last up to 10,000 hours. Due to its mobility and the up/down/left/right lens shift, providing highly versatile adjustments, the PLC-XP100L is suitable for a variety of applications from the boardroom to the classroom. The PLC-XP100L is available in September for $ 9,995.
