Sanyo projector has 12,000 lumens, 4,000:1 CR

Sanyo on Tuesday introduced the PLC-XF1000 projector to its lineup, which uses two lamps and a new QuaDrive optical engine to produce images much brighter than normally possible. The projector is rated at 12,000 lumens of brightness and a 4,000:1 contrast ratio. Sanyo points out the brightness rating is the highest among 100V AC projectors. The projector also gets an Active Maintenance Filter (AMF) to reduce maintenance costs and labor.

The QuaDrive optical engine uses a yellow color control device in addition to the typical red/green/blue 3LCD systems for improvements in luminosity, color accuracy and clarity. The projector is meant for outdoor displays or digital signage, where both brightness and color accuracy are important.

Each of the two lamps has a 330W rating. Integrated typical projector functions include a powered lens focus, shifting and zoom functions. A remote control for operating these and other functions is included.

Native resolution is 1024x768, and connections include VGA, HDCP-compliant DVI-D, component and S-video. The Sanyo PLC-X1000 will be available in December, priced at $24,995 without a lens.
