Sanyo’s New Projectors Include Market’s First 4LCD Model
The PLV-Z60 is Sanyo’s entry in the 720p LCD projector category ($1,299). It improves upon the model Sanyo fielded two years ago with a better contrast ratio and Lumens rating. “We didn’t have a 720p model out last year,” said Holt, “but 720p still accounts for around 50 percent of the market, so we wanted to be represented.”
Suitable for classroom and conference room use, the PLC-XL51 LCD projector (early October availability), due to its ultra-short-throw lens, can produce an 80-inch image from just three inches away from the projection surface. A second-generation model, it improves upon the earlier model’s Lumens rating at 2,700. Also, it has an SD memory card slot and is network-enabled, permitting the monitoring of the projector through a Web browser.
