From Sanyo —   The Sanyo PLC-XM100 is an XGA, multi-function LCD projector with powerful projection capabilities and the highest brightness in its class. Projection presentations in large environments such as lecture halls and high-capacity conference rooms are a breeze with this Sanyo projector. Power vertical and horizontal lens shift, power zoom and focus, and horizontal/vertical digital keystone correction give this LCD projector flexible installation characteristics. The active maintenance filter (AMF) system automatically sets a clean filter into place and warns users of clogged filters, making this Sanyo projector low on maintenance. The Sanyo PLC-XM100 was also marketed as the EIKI LC-XL100, and the Christie LX505. Sanyo is now part of the Panasonic Group and officially discontinued its production and sales of projectors in 2012.
