SANYO's portable XGA projector, the PLC-XP57L raises the bar even higher in the competitive world of LCD projector development. The new PLC-XP57L delivers an impressive 5500 ANSI lumens with a highly respectable 1000 to 1 contrast ratio and deeply saturated yet realistic colors (10 bits each RGB with video sources). That huge amount of colorful light comes from three improved- reliability 1.3 inch 1024 by 768 pixel LCD panels mounted in a projector that weighs a bit over 19 pounds with 2 built-in 2-watt stereo speakers and the standard LNS-S30 projection lens.
SANYO knows that people buy projectors not just for their impressive ANSI lumens, color and contrast credentials alone -- people buy projectors that are reliable and networkable, projectors that can seamlessly fit into today's integrated and demanding IT systems. The PLC-XP57L precisely fits those requirements since, unlike other technologies, SANYO's LCD-based projector has the ability to continuously network with SANYO's new optional PJ-Net Organizer Plus II with a digital LVDS interface and to project bright, colorful images for practical purposes – 24/7. That's because SANYO uses newly-developed, high-reliability LCD panels mounted on an improved optical block with better cooling and better polarization conditioning. Of course, under such conditions, the projector's cooling air filters need to be changed once a week (5 times longer if the external filter option is used -- POA-FBOX130) and it helps the lamp maintain its stability if it can be turned off once a day. However, that's a small inconvenience for such a great capability.
SANYO has also discovered that people need projectors with no constraints on where and how they are operated. The PLC-XP57L is just such a unit since it can be mounted in virtually any orientation -- facing upward, facing downward, right-side up, upside down or at any angle in between. Of course, once suspended near the ceiling, the projector's motorized zoom, shift and focus lens can be manipulated with the projector's wired or wireless remote control. If one needs even more flexibility, SANYO offers a wide range of lens options as well.
With the ability to project 24 hours a day, there's a chance that one will need to show a variety of video material. SANYO has anticipated those needs and equipped the PLC-XP57L with three separate image inputs (RGB, DVI and BNC), along with a new image processing system containing Auto Picture Control and Dynamic Auto Gamma Correction and a New Vertical-Horizontal Edge enhancement process. Plus, the PLC-XP57L now has full 10-bit Digital Image Processing for AV inputs which provides superior color gradation and highly realistic images!
