Sanyo has announced two new portable LCD multimedia projectors for the education and business markets, the PLC-ET30L and the PLC-XT21/L. The PLC-ET30L is priced at $6,495 and the PLC-XT/21L is priced starting at $4,495 (both prices do not include lenses).
The projectors are designed to work in environments where ambient light is inevitable, such as conference rooms and educational facilities. They can be custom-configured with special lenses to suit specific staging requirements. Each comes with a fan that outputs at 35 dBA and a filtration system that cools the projector using a single intake and exhaust vent; it also will provide a filter warning when it gets clogged. Both are also equipped with Sanyo’s “PJ Network” interface, that enables them to be operated by remote via a Web browser using an optional networking module.
Both projectors feature a built-in mono speaker with 1 watt of power, a D-sub 15 pin input, DVI-D, RGB, component and composite video inputs, and S-Video inputs, a D-sub output, USB, and remote jack.
Sanyo expects to ship both new models this month.
