Sanyo intros HD projector

Sanyo on Tuesday announced the introduction of its newest projector, the PDG-DHT100L, to its comprehensive projector lineup. The single-chip DLP projector features a native 1920x1080 resolution and is the brightest in its class, at 6,500 lumens. It has a Dual Color Wheel that can be changed by the user for increased color reproduction at the cost of brightness. What's more, the DHT100L has a dual lamp system that lets users operate it non-stop, even in the event one of the 330W HP bulbs should fail.

The PDG-DHT100L has an Active Maintenance Filter that is rated at 25,000 hours of automatically detecting dust build-up and advancing fresh filter material. Along with a sealed optical engine, the new Sanyo projector is nearly maintenance-free. A user-selectable lamp interval function can maximize lamp life by evenly distributing their burden. Each lamp can be put into operation automatically, or every 24, 200, 500, 1,000 or 2,000 hours. The function can be turned off altogether as well.

A picture-by-picture and picture-in-picture functions add functionality to the projector, allowing users to throw up two distinct videos at the same time. A vertical and horizontal lens shift, as well as 360-degree vertical tilt, gives users more choice in where the projector sits. The contrast ratio is rated at 7,500:1

Input connections include HDMI, DVI-D, VGA, S-video and five BNC connections that include component video inputs. For network connections, there is an RJ45 jack and USB port. A nine-pin serial port for input and output is likewise includes, while another VGA output acts as a monitor output.

The DHT100L is also compatible with Sanyo's Uncompressed HD Data Wireless Transmission System, which is an option. The system can send slightly lower video resolutions (1080i or 720p) without wires up to distances of 100 feet.

The PDG-DHT100L will be available in March, priced at $21,995 without a lens. The optical HD data Wireless Transmitter costs $1,895, which also requires the $895 HD data Wireless Receiver Board.
