Sanyo PLC-WXE45 Projector Released

For the people looking for a cost-efficient projector, check out this new one from Sanyo. Sanyo has added the low-cost PLC-WXE45 to their broad line-up of LCD projectors. Key features of the value-priced projector include a short focal length lens, full WXGA resolution, networking capability, blackboard and color board modes, security features, closed captioning, and a clever space saving design.

The PLC-WXE45 is outfitted with a short focal length lens that allows it to project a full 80-inch image from a distance of only 34-inches. Combined with the unit’s small dimensions, the short throw lens allows both educators and business professionals to use the projector in virtually any location, especially small venues like conference and classrooms.

It’s now possible to move the projector from the center of the room and place it closer to the screen, freeing up seating space and preventing the audience from interfering with the projected image.

The projector can be used in a variety of applications, providing full 1280 x 800 (16:10) resolution. It is capable of projecting high definition images from cable/satellite or DVD sources and can also deliver a computer presentation from Macs or PCs.

Equipped with SANYO’s exclusive PJ Network Interface, the PLC-WXE45 can be integrated into a wired network, which makes it possible for the projector’s functions and operation to be monitored from a long distance or within a web browser. Emails can be sent automatically to report current operating status.
