Sanyo launches ‘shortest distance’ projector
Dubai, October 25, 2010
Sanyo Gulf, a leader in a diverse range of consumer electronics, has launched new projector which is able to create an 80-inch image with the world’s shortest projection distance of 32 cm.
The PDG-DWL2500, which features a WXGA (wide extended graphics array) resolution with 2,500 lumens of high brightness and high contrast (2000:1), can operate at very short distances from display screens and wall surfaces, a statement said.
The projector can be set up vertically or horizontally, on table tops, walls, floors and ceilings, enabling companies, teachers and students to showcase their presentations without shadows covering the screen due to the state-of-the-art ultra short focus function.
With 3D capacity, this ultra-short focus projector is fully-enabled for large screens and uses the frame sequential display format to display 3D images.
“Newer technologies that include 3D and widescreen display functions will potentially change the way that we create and view presentations,” said Motokatsu Sakaguchi, managing director, Sanyo Gulf.
“The optical efficiency of our new short-throw projectors is 40 per cent greater than conventional ones and the fact that it has the world’s shortest projection distance is good news for customers that need to have large screens for their audiences but which are compact enough that they don’t take up all the space,” he added.
With the projector’s 3D and short-range capabilities, presentations and teaching methods in schools and companies across the region could potentially take on a whole new creative direction and importantly, maintenance costs will be kept to a minimum due to the PDG-DWL2500 life-long filters, according to the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
