Sanyo short throw projector looks stunning
Sanyo does not want to be left behind in Samsung’s wake with the latter recently announcing eight more new projectors that will hit the market shortly, and hence have come up with a solitary defense – a front projector that is touted to throw an amazing 100″ image from just 63cm away. As for this front projector’s color reproducibility, it currently stands at 170% of the NTSC standard so you can be assured that there is a high standard of quality we’re talking about here. This projector is able to perform as it does thanks to the use of ultra-short focus projection technology that merges both projector lenses and concave mirrors, projecting light from the upper surface of the device with laser as a light source.
Sanyo’s latest will also come with a brightness of 7,000lm, where Sanyo is willing to stake its claim of this being “the world’s highest brightness among laser projectors.” As mentioned earlier, it boasts a color reproduction range that is “about twice as wide as that of general LCD TVs”, although we’re not too sure whether this is able to compare to what the best plasma TVs and LCD TVs have to offer. After all, no point making a comparison with average/general products from a rival range, right? You might as well learn to pit it against the best for merit.
The Sanyo DLP projector will come with a trio of 0.95″ DMDs (digital mirror devices), and is capable of handling full High Definition video flawlessly with a pixel count of 1,920 x 1,080. You will be able to choose from a variety of screen sizes that range from 100″ to 150″, and even at its maximum size, the projection distance is a mere 94cm, making this useful for presentations when you don’t want folks crossing right in front of your display to distract the rest of the audience. Other features include a throw ratio of 0.28 which is also better than the industry average. Commercialization of this projector will commence in 2012.
