Sanyo releases new PLC-WXE45 LCD projector
Sanyo is not short on new devices for the masses despite the current economic slowdown, and they have now come up with yet another LCD projector – the PLC-WXE45. Being one of the world’s largest manufacturers of LCD and DLP projectors, the low-cost PLC-WXE45 aims to extend their current line-up of LCD projectors in the market, touting key features such as a short focal length lens, full WXGA resolution, networking capability, blackboard and color board modes, security features, closed captioning, all crammed into a design that will work even if you’re living in an extremely cramped apartment, or have a really small meeting room.
What makes the PLC-WXE45 stand out from the rest is its short focal length lens which enables it to project a full 80″ image from a mere distance of 34″ – that’s pretty swell no matter how you look at it. When merged with the PLC-WXE45’s already small dimensions, the short throw lens works magic, enabling groups such as educators and business professionals to use this projector just about anywhere, even in small venues such as classrooms and conference rooms. In addition, you can now move the projector nearer up to the front, bringing it nearer the display to free up seating space which could be better utilized by fitting in a few extra people while preventing shifty audience to disrupt the presentation by moving across the projected image.
Features of the Sanyo PLC-WXE45 include a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels at 16:10 aspect ratio, which also means it is able to handle High Definition images, but you can forget about watching your Blu-ray movies with this in full glory since full HD is not supported. When coupled with Sanyo’s exclusive PJ Network Interface, the PLC-WXE45 is able to be integrated seamlessly into a wired network, enabling one to monitor the projector’s functions and operation to from a long distance or within a web browser. Not only that, emails concerning its current operating status can also be sent automatically, adding yet another featuer in its cap.
