Sanyo Continues to Redefine Presentation Hardware withNew Unit Uses Powerful Micro Lens Array Technology
CHATSWORTH, Calif. -- March 15, 1999--Sanyo, a leader in digital technologies for the PC and presentation markets, Monday announced the introduction of the full-featured PLC-XP10N, one of the smallest and most powerful multimedia LCD projectors in its class.
Boasting the advanced Micro Lens Array technology and prism, the new unit provides an unprecedented (for models in this class) 1400 ANSI lumens (typical) of actual screen brightness and exceptional image uniformity.
Advanced Micro Lens, Brightness Technology
The true power of the PLC-XP10N is unleashed by incorporating the revolutionary Micro Lens Array technology and prism system, which recycles light energy that would otherwise be wasted as heat in conventional projectors.
In addition, this projector uses a newly developed 160-watt Superior Intensity Discharge (SID) lamp that produces exceptional brightness, while consuming considerably less power.
The PLC-XP10N features three panel 1.3" polysilicon TFT LCD panels that incorporate a Micro Lens to increase overall light concentrating efficiency. This breakthrough design lets more light through to the LCD panels from the SID lamp, resulting in significantly brighter images over today's typical projector.
The high-quality, non-reflective projection lens truly allows users to maximize the effectiveness of their presentations, while maintaining an exceptionally high level of brightness, contrast and clarity -- a critical capability that might otherwise be sacrificed with traditional projectors.
The PLC-XP10N is ideally suited for a wide variety of applications, including corporate boardrooms, classrooms and training center environments. It is also in high demand with the rental market.
"As the world's largest manufacturer of LCD projectors, we have a responsibility to lead the market with exciting, useful innovations that are meaningful to our customers," said Jeff Spittel, national sales manager for Sanyo's Presentation Technologies Division.
"The technological breakthroughs we've achieved will directly impact the success of our users, who demand flexible presentation solutions that can be used in virtually any environment. Fortunately, Sanyo meets this need head-on," added Spittel.
Another important benefit users will immediately derive from the PLC-XP10N is its wide-ranging compatibility, both domestically and internationally.
With its plug-and-play convenience, the projector automatically recognizes the computer's signal and selects the proper settings accordingly. By eliminating the headaches that are all too common with conventional projector setup, users will now achieve perfect results flawlessly and consistently.
Operating the unit is as simple as making the connections, turning it on and beginning the presentation. The auto-lock frequency synchronization makes the PLC-XP10N compatible with both Macs and PCs. The auto set feature automatically sets the fine synchronization, total dot adjustment and positioning.
The TFT LCD panels offer additional compatibility with the increasingly popular XGA-equipped notebook computers. Plus, through Sanyo's proprietary Digital Realized Interpolation Technology (DRIT), the projector is also compatible with a 1280 x 1024-dot SXGA system.
International compatibility includes:

capabilities, with a special
The PLC-XP10N comes in a sleek, compact design. It weighs only 14.3 pounds, with dimensions of just 10.7" (W) x 5.7" (H) x 16.2" (D) -- small and light enough to be easily transported and used virtually anywhere.
Pricing, Availability & Warranty
The unit is currently shipping through Sanyo's national network of professional audio visual dealers with an MSRP of $11,995. A three-year warranty on parts and labor is included, with a 90-day warranty on the lamp.
