Sanyo-PLC-XF71 Sanyo has introduced a two-lamp pro-grade projector that it calls the brightest in its class.

The PLC-XF71 (1024x768) blasts 10,000 lumens with a contrast ratio of 3000:1 using a three-mirror system to achieve uniform light output from two lamps.

It also features Sanyo’s Durable Inorganic Optical System (DIOS) with optical components that are heat and UV resistant, and the company’s Active Maintenance Filter (AMF) system, which automatically detects airflow and advances clean filter material as needed.

“This two-lamp projector is bright enough to use in large auditoriums, staging events or any other venue that requires a projector that can emit a good deal of light,” said Mark Holt, the vice president and general manager for Sanyo’s Presentation Technologies Division. “The addition with our AMF technology the PLC-XF71 can reliably meet the demands of our customers in the large event/conference and halls market as well as the digital signage market, and office-use market.”

The projector is compatible with WUXGA, UXGA, SXGA+, SXGA, WXGA, XGA, SVGA, VGA and Mac computers. It will ship in January 2009 with a suggested retail price of $16,995.
