Sanyo PLV Z60 projector

Sanyo has introduced a new home theater projector also built with PCs in mind. The projector's 3LCD system is unusually sharp among mainstream projectors with a 720p resolution and produces output closer to HDTVs, with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and 1,200 lumens of brightness. An optical zoom out to 2x allows the unit to present a 100" picture from 9.8 feet to 20 feet away. The exact position of the image can be adjusted horizontally or vertically. When the unit is not being used, a servo-controlled shutter covers the lens.

The PLV-Z60 has a wide array of picture adjustments for the category including more complex changes such as the gamma curve and manual control of the iris. Video sources can be connected through two HDMI and component connections for full digital links or S-video, composite for analog; the PC input is supplied through a VGA port. Sanyo claims the cooling fan noise is also low at 22dB maximum in its low-demand economy mode. The PLV-Z60 will be available in September for $1,300.
