Sanyo, the leading and largest manufacturer of LCD and DLP projectors, has very recently announced that they for the first time are going to add two new LCD portable projectors, the PLC-XC55 and the PLC-XC50 equipping Active Maintenance Filter System. The best thing about these projectors is that these can easily be used business and educational purposes. As both of these are equipped with SANYO’s Active Maintenance Filter (AMF) system, easy filter changes are possible along with several security features to prevent theft.
The Vice President and General Manager for SANYO’s Presentation Technologies Division, Mark Holt says "Thanks to SANYO’s AMF, these new high brightness projectors significantly lower a school system’s cost of ownership by reducing filter Maintenance costs by a factor of ten."
Certain significant features of the PLC-XC55 and the PLC-XC50 projectors are:
- Auto Keystone Correction (vertical up to +/- 20 degrees), Auto Setup function
- UXGA, SXGA+, SXGA, WXGA, XGA, SVGA, VGA, and MAC input signal compatibility
- 1080i 50/60, 1035i, 720p HD resolutions
- 480p, 480i, 575p, 575i SD Resolution
- Lamp: 220W UHP
- Built-in mono speaker with 7-watts of power
- Noise Rating: 27.5dBA (Eco mode), 34.0dBA (Normal mode)
These two portable projectors, the PLC-XC55 and the PLC-XC50 have a unique filtration system consisting of a Filter cartridge with ten lengths of filter material and an airflow sensor. This airflow sensor detects and prevents when the airflow is obstructed by dust. As soon as the last section of filter material becomes obstructed an on-screen graphic appears telling the user to change the cartridge. The best thing about these projectors is that each filter lasts for almost 3000 hours.
You will not even need to use external speakers because its internal speakers are good enough to keep your house blast in music. These projectors promises hi-fi video with Video Terminals like DVI-I, D-sub15, Component (w/ Optional Cable), Composite, S-Video (Mini Din 4), D-sub15 monitor out. You will find these projectors available in the market only in July with a price range of $1,995.00 for the PLC-XC55 and $1,495.00 for the PLC-XC50 and that is too with 3 years parts and labor warranty.
