Projector Central Highly Recommended Award

Sanyo PLV-Z700 Projector

1080P Home Theater Projector
Calculate Throw Distance

From Sanyo —   Not only is it full HD (1920 x 1080), the PLV-Z700 achieves deep, rich, and very importantly, accurate color. This is automatically accomplished thanks to SANYO's exclusive TopazReal HD Technology, a 3D color management system that addresses color phase and color level to obtain perfect color reproduction. The PLV-700's color management system can generate a total of approximately 216 billion possible color combinations. This new color management system was designed to optimize the potential of deep color from either of the projector's two HDMI inputs. 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.

Manufacturer Cited Brightness:

BUYER BEWARE   Either this projector's brightness specification does not cite an industry-accepted unit of measurement, or according to our calculations it seems unlikely that this projector is capable of producing the manufacturer's cited brightness specification.
