Sanyo PLV-Z700 projector

Sanyo on Monday took the wraps off its newest home theater HD projector, the three-LCD PLV-Z700. Capable of projecting 1080p images, Sanyo is nevertheless marketing the PLV-Z700 as an entry-level projector. The company touts the new product as using the most advanced shift lens technology available, capable of shifting three entire screen sizes vertically and two screen sizes horizontally. It also sports a variable iris that adjusts the amount of light projected on the screen 60 times a second, or twice as fast as 30 frames per second tV.

The 10,000:1 contrast ratio and 1,200 ANSI lumens brightness when the PLV-Z700 is in Dynamic Video Mode are said to offer more realistic black color reproduction, delivered via one of two integrated HDMI 1.3 inputs that add Deep Color support. The 16:9 aspect ratio projector's 2x zoom lens is capable of creating screen sizes of between 40 and 300 inches.

Connecting the projector to PCs is done via a VGA plug and a pair of RGB plugs, while traditional video connections include two component inputs, and one composite and S-video connection in addition to the two HDMI 1.3 inputs.

The PLV-Z700 will be available for purchase in October for about $1,995.
