CHATSWORTH, Calif., March 26 /PRNewswire/ — SANYO, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of 3LCD and DLP projectors, announced details about a new ultraportable projector, the PLC-XW60, which is the industry’s smallest and lightest XGA LCD projector. At a mere 3.6 lbs, it is small enough to carry in one hand, offering simple setup, and is packed full 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. The small and lightweight projector has been designed for widespread use by those on the go such as traveling businessmen, as well as in corporate offices and classrooms.
The SANYO PLC-XW60 introduces the industry’s smallest compact body at only 10.4 (W) x 2.17 (H) X 7.40 (D) inches (not including protrusion parts). Contributing to the ultra-small dimensions, SANYO developed new, lighter, miniaturized optical components, reduced the lamp size by 39% by using an optimized reflector and reduced the lens weight by 44% by adopting
a new aspherical plastic lens. The reduced size and weight opens up new opportunities for on-the-go projector use in business, entertainment and education markets.
The projector is capable of projecting an extremely large image from short distances. For instance, a 100-inch image is possible from only 9 to 11 feet away, enabling the PLC-XW60 to be used in very limited spaces. Additionally, the PLC-XW60 offers simple setup functions such as a built-in sensor that automatically searches for an available input signal and automatic keystone correction for use in a wide variety of locations and situations. The projector’s guidance display allows users, either novice or
experts, to quickly setup and operate the PLC-XW60.
