802.11n Sanyo PLC-WXU700 coming to the US next month

sanyo_pcl_wxu700.jpgA couple of weeks back I told you about the Sanyo PLC-WXU700, the world's first portable projector to feature 802.11n wireless capabilities. It's so fast that 802.11n isn't even a specified standard, but it will be and tons of hardware manufacturers are getting ready ahead of time. That's besides the point though. The real story here is that the newest Sanyo projector will be shipping in the United States next month!

Aside from Wi-Fi, the 7.9-pound PLC-WXU700 also features 1280 x 800 resolution streaming of multiple video formats including WMV, MPEG-1 and MPEG-2, as well as a rather bright 3800 lumen lamp. Despite the brightness, the WXU700 requires no cooldown time. Just shut it off and pack it up.

Keep your eyes out for the PLC-WXU700 in June when it's slated to ship for $2995.

Sanyo LP-WXU700 LCD projector streams wireless video over 802.11n

sanyo-lpwxu700.jpgSanyo announced this morning the first projector to stream wireless video over 802.11b/g/n. Called the Sanyo LP-WXU700, the 3LCD projector has a Video Streaming Function and Windows Embedded CE 6.0 software which enables it to network to any Windows Vista PC from which it can grab video. At 3.6 kilograms the LP-WXU700 is fairly light and while it only sports WXGA (1280 x 800 pixels) resolution, 3800 lumens of brightness make up for the single shortcoming. The projector can display a 100-inch image from 2.5 to 4 meters, has 500:1 contrast ratio plus a variety of image correction features, and despite the wireless functionality still have both USB and HDMI inputs. Targeted at schools and offices, the Sanyo LP-WXU700 is expected to ship June 19 for 627900 yen or US$6473. Wow that's expensive!

The A800 and A900 are part of the Joe Kane Signature Series and sport 1080p resolution. All three models include a pair of HDMI ports, a pair of component ports, as well as VGA, S-video, composite and PC slots. The trio also features RS-232C controls, and feature 2500:1, 10000:1, and 12000:1 contrast ratios, respectively.

The P Series consists of the P400 portable projectordesigned for mobile applications, weighing in at under 2 pounds. The DLP projector pumps out 150 ANSI lumens from an LED light source, has a 30000 lamp life, and has built-in speakers, as well as composite and VGA slots.

The L Series consists of the L300and L220, both 3LCD projectors, that boast respective brightness levels of 3000 and 2200 lumens.

Sanyo announces 7000 lumen laser projector

sanyo_laser2.jpgRemember when you were young and your mother told you not to look directly at the Sun? Now Sanyo's latest laser projector will have to be added to the list of eye-damaging sights. Yep, all 7000 lumens of brightness, the brightest rating ever available for a projector. The ultra short throw projector, as yet unnamed, produces 150 inch images in full high-definition from only 94 centimeters, a throw ratio of 0.28. The 2370 × 510 × 630 millimeter laser projector also hasn't been priced or given an availability date, but you won't find anything better than this for projecting an image in small spaces.

Sanyo rolls out PLC-WXE45 LCD short throw projector

sanyowxe45.jpgSanyo has unveiled yet another projector, this one the short throw PLC-WXE45 LCD projector designed for classroom use. The 2000 lumen projector features a 1280 x 800 resolution, 500: 1 contrast ratio and 16:10 aspect ratio. Given that classrooms tend to be relatively small spaces, the WXE45 is capable of displaying an 80-inch image from a distance of 34-inches, and a built-in network interface can connect to a wired network for remote operation. Moreover, a color correction feature enables the projector to display clear images on a variety of surfaces including blackboards and whiteboards. Unfortunately there is no built-in speaker, but closed captioning is supported, and built-in VGA, S-video and composite connections are included. Security features are also built-in, including a PIN code lock and an alarm triggered by movement. The Sanyo PLC-WXE45 LCD short throw projector is available now for $1795.

Hitachi outs CP-X2010 3LCD projector for the classroom

hitachicpx2010.jpgHitachi has announced the CP-X2010, its newest 3LCD project targeted at the educational market. Features include 1024 x 768 resolution, 500:1 contrast ration, 2200 lumens of brightness, and 16W of sound through its built-in speakers. The lamp has a regular mode rated for 3000 hours of use, while its Eco mode extends the lamp life to 5000 hours. Inside is a hybrid maintenance filter that lasts almost as long as the lamp, rated for 4000 hours. The CP-X2010 also has a Whisper mode that keeps the fan noise to a maximum of 29 dB, and closed captioning is included for the hearing-impaired. I really like the My Buttons features which allows users to create shortcuts to any of the projector's functions by combining buttons and pressing them simultaneously. The Transition Detector provides security in a public environment, requiring a password to operate the projector if it is moved. There's also a security bar that can be used to simply chain the CP-X2010 down. High resolution isn't supported by the CP-X2010 so there isn't an HDMI port. Instead component, composite and S-video slots are supplied. Hitachi still hasn't announced pricing or availability.

Sanyo PDG-DHT100L DLP projector helps you see the light

sanyo_PDG-DHT100L_projector.jpgSorry folks, but Sanyo's PDG-DHT100L DLP projector is definitely not for the living room...unless you have an unusually large house. This one's better suited for massive outdoor screens with its dual 330W HP bulbs, 6500 lumens of brightness and a twin color wheel system. Compatible with screen sizes up to 600 inches, the PDG-DHT100L features a sealed optical engine, Active Maintenance Filter, and 1080p resolution. Don't have space for wires? That's fine too. The Sanyo DLP can transit uncompressed 720p or 1080i wireless signals up to 100 feet to a separate wireless receiver. Just expect to pay a fair chunk of change for this professional grade projector. The projector itself costs $21995 when it ships this month, while the wireless transmitter and wireless receiver cost $1895 and $895, respectively.
