LP-XP200L: The World’s First 4-LCD Optical Engine Projector

Today Sanyo announced their world’s first 4-LCD optical engine projector, the LP-XP200L. Due to the increasing demand for a projector with greater brightness, Sanyo tried providing their projector with greater brightness and deep colors.

The problem with a better brightness is the loss of vivid colors. With this new optical engine, the projector overcomes the obstacle of color-loss while at the same time increasing the brightness by 20%.

Other features include an active maintenance filter, a contrast ratio of 2200:1, 1.3” LCD screen, screen projection from 31” to 400”, 1224×768 resolution, video input(x3)/BNC/RCA/S-video inputs, and RGB / DVI outputs.

Tokyo, June 18, 2008 – SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. (SANYO) announces a new projector, the
LP-XP200L, featuring rich and true color reproduction thanks to the world’s first*1 4LCD optical
engine, the brightest luminance of its class*2 at 7,000 lumens, and a built-in Active Maintenance
Filter (AMF) system with the industry’s longest-use time*3 for easy maintenance. The new
projector will be available in the Japanese market starting from September 24, 2008.
About the new projector and its technology, Dr. Keiichi Yodoshi, SANYO Digital Systems
Company Vice President, said, “With the addition of the new ‘Color Control Device’ in the optical
engine, the problem typically associated with brighter projectors losing vivid colors is
significantly improved upon. Now, with increased demand for projectors with greater brightness,
market needs can be answered without sacrificing rich and beautiful color reproduction, in turn
allowing sharper, better displays in brighter event halls, large meeting rooms, as well performing
magnificently in digital signage and advertising situations.”

This projector will be on display at the InfoComm 2008 Exhibit in Las Vegas from June 18 to
June 20 at the SANYO booth in the Central Hall #2848.

approximately 2 years*4)
- Filter automatically senses when airflow is obstructed by dust, and advances to a clean filter by
reeling cartridge to new filter
- Easy to replace, with one-touch cartridge and side-loading access
- One cartridge has the equivalent of 10 filters, lightening the burden of maintenance

4. Other Features
