Sanyo XW60 projector

After earlier reports of its ultraportable PLC-XW60 launching in Japan, Sanyo announced it on Wednesday for the North American market. Sanyo claims that at 3.6 lbs and with 10.4- by 2.17- by 7.4-inch dimensions, the XW60 is the industry's lightest and smallest XGA (1,024x768) resolution LCD projector. Designed for traveling businesspeople and light-duty office use, the XW60 attains its size thanks to a lamp that is 39 percent smaller thanks to a smaller reflector while a plastic aspherical plastic lens is 44 percent lighter than a glass one.

Features on the XW60 include automatic keystone correction and input signal detection as well as an adjustable color mode that correctly displays the projected image on surfaces other than solid white. The projector is also made to work in small spaces with its ability to throw up a 100-inch image from as little as 9 to 11 feet.

Two 15-pin PC (VGA) inputs, a 15-pin D-sub component input and RCA inputs are the video input options, while two sets of RCA connections as well as a stereo mini-jack in and out act as the audio sources. Brightness is rated at 2,000 lumens, while the aspect ratio is locked at a standard 4:3.

The XW60 will be available in April, priced at nearly $800.
