Sanyo Debuts Lightweight XGA LCD Video Projector

3/26/2008 04:13:00 PM Eastern

Chatsworth, Calif. — Sanyo has introduced a 3.6-pound XGA LCD video projector, which it claims is the industry’s smallest and lightest.

The PLC-XW60 is small enough to carry in one hand and features automatic keystone correction, automatic input signal detection, an adjustable color mode for projecting on different surface colors, and an easy-off function that allows users to pull the plug and store the projector without waiting for a cool-down cycle, the company said.

The unit is 10.4 inches wide by 2.17 inches high and 7.4 inches deep, not including protrusion parts.

Sanyo said it has developed lighter, miniaturized optical components; reduced the lamp size by 39 percent by using an optimized reflector; and reduced the lens weight by 44 percent by adopting a new aspherical plastic lens. The reduced size and weight opens up new opportunities for on-the-go projector use in business, entertainment and education markets.

The projector is capable of projecting an extremely large image from short distances. For instance, a 100-inch image is possible from only 9 feet to 11 feet away, enabling the PLC-XW60 to be used in very limited spaces, Sanyo said.

Brightness is 2,000 lumens. Resolution is 1,024 by 768; it features an aspect ratio of 4:3 and has a built-in mono speaker with 1 watt of power. Suggested retail is $795 with shipping set for next month.
