The D-sub terminal can be switched to a monitor out as well. The Sanyo PLC-XU78 was also marketed as the EIKI LC-XB33. Sanyo is now part of the Panasonic Group and officially discontinued its production and sales of projectors in 2012.

ANSI LUMENS  is the most commonly accepted industry standard brightness measurement. The ANSI lumen rating measures the brightest white that a projector can produce by averaging nine light meter measurements taken across the projected image.
