PDG-DWL2500J: Sanyo’s new 3D-ready ultra short focus projector
Sanyo Electric today unveiled their new ultra-short focus projector at a press conference in their Tokyo branch and we were there for you.
Sanyo’s new WXGA projector, codenamed PDG-DWL2500J, boasts not only offering World’s shortest projection distance (for projectors up to 9kg), but also 3D support (active shutter glasses required) and compact size.
It is capable of projecting a 80-inch large image, from a projection distance (distance from projection window to the screen) as short as 32 cm, an improvement from 45 cm of projection distance of the other short-focus model of Sanyo, the LP-X50. Furthermore, it also excells it with the maximum projection size of 110”, an improvement from the maximum 80”.
We have been informed that the LP-X50 has been used in the education sector all around the World from England to US to Malaysia and Australia. However, with this projector Sanyo aimed for various other application environments, not only limited to the education sector. Hence its compact, 231mm (W) x 170mm(H) x 385mm D), size and installation flexibility allowing you to set it up either vertically or horizontally, and to place it on table top, under table, on the floor, on the ceiling or on the wall. In fact, during the presentation, we were displayed various examples of the kind of environments where it can be effectively used such as design companies, real-estate agencies, hospitals, and amusement arcades.
Other specs include HDMI terminal, standard RJ-45 port, 16:10 aspect ratio, 2,500 lumens of brightness, 10W mono speaker and less than 6.5kg of weight.
Scheduled to be available as of July 2010 with an estimated price of 450,000 yen.
P.S. Special thanks to Sanyo for their hospitality.
