Sanyo PLC-XW60 XGA LCD projector
Sanyo has thrusted its PLC-XW60 XGA LCD projector into the limelight, touting it to be the smallest and lightest XGA LCD projector in the market at this point in time. In fact, it is so tiny that it can be carried around in one hand without straining your back muscles – a far cry from the LCD projectors of old that required you to have the strength level of the Hulk in order to lug it around. The PLC-XW60 tips the scales at a mere 3.6 lbs and comes with a whole host of features such as 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. It has been released especially to target traveling business people, corporate offices and classrooms.
The Sanyo PLC-XW60 must be seen in order to be believed – it bears a measurement of just 10.4″ x 2.17″ x 7.4″, assuming you don’t count the protruding sections. In order to make it this small, Sanyo had to develop new, lighter, miniaturized optical components, while reducing its lamp size by 39% by using an optimized reflector and making the lens weight lighter by 44% by adopting a new aspherical plastic lens.
