Sunview PMP Pico-Projector Heading For Taiwan

fd_sc(2).jpgThe world's first portable media player with a built-in pico-projector is in the news again. This time it's headed for Taiwanese shelves in the 3rd quarter of this year, not quite the "head for North America" news we've been waiting for. The Sunview PMPP is a Windows CE portable device with a pretty weak 5 lumen pico-projector with VGA resolution. But there has to be a tradeoff between portability and picture quality somewhere. Powered by a 400 MHz Samsung process, the Sunview PMPP features a 3.5-inch QVGA LCD screen and an SD/MMC card slot to give its meager 64MB internal memory a boost. If it does hit North American shores in the future, we hope its US $500-$600 pricetag comes down a little.

ASUS Adds A Projector To A Laptop

asus_proj0(2).jpgIt's seemed in the last year or so that the big trend in the projector industry has been portability. And by portable we mean ultra portable, with projection technology being integrated into cellphones, shrunk to a size that easily fits into your pants pocket, and now built right into a laptop. That's right, at Computex over in Taiwan ASUS has unveiled a new notebook with a built-in projector mounted on the top of the display which rotates and swivels so it can be tucked in when it comes time to close the lid. Definite business applications here.

Sanyo PLC-XC55, PLC-XC50 Portable Projectors Hitting The US In July, Half The Price Of Companion Japanese Projectors

sanyo-plc-xc50-1(2).jpgIt's not too often that a company will announce a Japanese electronics product launch and a companion American launch in one week, but that's what Sanyo has done this week with the announcement of their PLC-XC55 (LP-XC55 in Japan) and PLC-XC50 (LP-XC50 in Japan) projectors. This Sunday we told you about their upcoming Japanese launch in mid-July, and it turns out this pair of portables will be coming to the US in July as well. Not only are they bright, putting out 3100 and 2600 lumens respectively, they also feature nearly maintenance-free filters, dubbed Active Maintenance Filters, and some nifty security features to deter thieves. They'll project up to 720p/1080i resolution using either DVI-I or component video inputs, or if you go the standard-def route will use composite and S-video connections instead. The best part about the upcoming US release by far is the price. In Japan the PLC-XC55 will have a US$3537 sticker while the PLC-XC50 will have a US$3029 price tag. American buyers are only looking at paying about half the price: the PLC-XC55 and PLC-XC50 will be priced at $1995 and $1495 respectively.

Hitachi CP-X450J LCD Projector Launches For Business Use June In Japan

hitachi(2).jpgHitachi's CP-X450J is the company's latest LCD projector, with of course, a Japanese release date of June 10, 2008. The 1024x768 resolution projector uses a 230 Watt UHB lamp to produce 3500 lumens of brightness, comes with a zoom lens that can be adjusted both manually and automatically and features auto-correction for vertical picture distortion. Destined for business use, the CP-X450J has a template function that gives the user the option of surrounding the projected picture with four different borders-black with white borders, white with black borders, a black and white grid, and black with white plotting. Definitely a handy feature for business users displaying graphs and charts as part of a presentation.

Dynamic and cinema projection modes adjust the brightness level depending on the environment and type of content and a quiet mode reduces the projector's noise level to 30 decibels. Other features include a two-tier electrostatic filter that reduces the filter cleaning interval from 400 hours to 2000 hours, 10 Watt mono speaker output, and a Quick Start feature that powers up the projector in only 7 seconds. Connection options are pretty vast with both RGB analog inputs and outputs, component, composite, and S-video jacks, RCA and stereo mini audio outputs, RS-232C control and a USB slot for the mouse. The Hitachi CP-X450J LCD projector has a price set at 399, 000 Yen, about $3785 US.

Earth Trek's 90-805R Mini Projector The World's Smallest Non-Embedded Projector

90_805R_Mini_Projector_1(2).jpgNot quite a picoprojector but small nevertheless, Earth Trek's 90-805R Mini projector measures in at 105x58x25mm and weighs only 160 grams. Small enough to fit in your pocket, the 90-805R Mini can project a 22-inch diagonal image and somehow has enough room to stuff in an SD/T-Flash card slot, a lithium ion battery, a speaker, and an MP4 player.

Sanyo LP-XC55 and LP-XC50 With Active Maintenance Filter Get Japanese July Launch

LP_XC55_1(2).jpgIf you happen to live in Japan, as we know most of our readers don't, come July 11th you'll be able to get your hands on two new projectors from Sanyo. The 3100 lumen LP-XC55 and the 2600 lumen LP-XC50 portable projectors feature Sanyo's Active Maintenance Filter which automatically senses when airflow is obstructed by dust and prompts you to change the filter. Of course the filter system and projector design minimizes dust build-up, so filter changes aren't necessary as frequently as most models. A Security Bar that allows 11 millimeter thick security wires, which Sanyo claims is a theft-deterrent. Both feature built-in 7 Watt speakers and an auto setup function which automatically detects signal sources. The usual connectivity options are available including a DVI-I digital interface and the lamp can be changed through an easy-access panel, even when roof-mounted. Finally, the new Sanyo projectors utilize a Color Board Mode which will project onto red, green, blue, and yellow surfaces.
