Sanyo has launched a new wide-angle lens LCD projector a short throw, low-maintenance multimedia device aimed at the education and business sectors.
The PLC-WL2500 creates an 80-inch diagonal image from a throw distance of just 86cm, reducing shadows on the wall or on an interactive whiteboard.
According to Sanyo, the device has a lamp life of up to 4,000 hours in economy mode, reducing the cost of ownership. It uses LCD technology to create bright images of 2500 ANSI, which the vendor claims are ‘easy on the eye and colour-rich’, with a contrast ratio of 500:1.
Offering a W-XGA resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, the device is optimised for images in a widescreen 16:10 format. It has an adjustable image size of 60 to 110 inches.
The projector also features HDMI input, an integrated ten watt speaker and a network control function, which allows the user to operate the device remotely.
