SANYO, one of the world's largest manufacturers of LCD and DLP projectors adds the low-cost PLC-WXE45 to their broad line-up of LCD projectors. Key features of the value-priced projector include a short focal length lens, full WXGA resolution, networking capability, blackboard and color board modes, security features, closed captioning, and a clever space saving design.
Boasting off a short focal length lens, the low-cost LCD projector can reproduce an 80-inch image on the screen from a distance of only 34-inches. It offers a full WXGA 1280 x 800 resolution, aspect ratio of 16:10, 500:1 contrast ratio and 2000 lumens of brightness. Other key attributes include networking capability, security features, closed captioning and a clever space saving design.
The PLC-WXE45 is outfitted with a short focal length lens that allows it to project a full 80-inch image from a distance of only 34-inches. Combined with the unit's small dimensions, the short throw lens allows both educators and business professionals to use the projector in virtually any location, especially small venues like conference and classrooms. It's now possible to move the projector from the center of the room and place it closer to the screen, freeing up seating space and preventing the audience from interfering with the projected image.
The projector can be used in a variety of applications, providing full 1280 x 800 (16:10) resolution. It is capable of projecting high definition images from cable/satellite or DVD sources and can also deliver a computer presentation from Macs or PCs.
Equipped with SANYO's exclusive PJ Network Interface, the PLC-WXE45 can be integrated into a wired network, which makes it possible for the projector's functions and operation to be monitored from a long distance or within a web browser. Emails can be sent automatically to report current operating status.
The projector's power turns on as soon as the power cord is connected. There is no need to press any buttons on the remote control or the projector. Moreover, there is no need to wait for the bulb to cool down after a presentation. The power cord can be disconnected immediately after turning off the projector. This makes it possible to set up and move through a presentation quickly or on the fly and saves energy too!
The PLC-WXE45 is equipped with several security features. To minimize the risk of theft, it cannot be operated without the supplied remote control plus a PIN code lock prevents use of the projector by unauthorized users. The projector is also outfitted with an anti-theft alarm that emits a loud sound whenever a sizable vibration, which could be someone trying to move the projector, is detected.
For deaf and hearing-impaired individuals, the PLC-WXE45 provides closed captioning, which displays the audio portion of a TV signal as printed words on the projected screen.
The PLC-WXE45 will be available now and has suggested retail price of $1,795.00.
