SanyoSanyo PLV-Z5 projector : Sanyo, one of the world's largest manufacturers of LCD projector products, introduces the Sanyo PLV-Z5. This home projector has a heretofore unheard of 10,000:1 contrast ratio. The extremely high ratio here means brilliant rich colors due to the stunning contrast. Images are further enhanced with the industry's first twin-iris system. Integrating a lens aperture and lamp aperture, this new system delivers true-to-life images with outstanding gradation in a variety of viewing environments. Also, Sanyo's newly developed TopazReal Technology blends together the brightness level of the lamp output and newly designed LCD panels, helping to achieve a superior and sharper picture in scenes with any brightness level.
Sanyo PLV-Z5 projectorSanyo Z5 projector - Design
The Sanyo PLV-Z5 design delivers crisp, bright high-contrast images, even in well-lit environments. The Sanyo PLV-Z5 can handle today's demanding interface possibilities. A full complement of input terminals, which includes two digital HDM1 interfaces and two sets of component video inputs, together with composite video and S-video connections, provides extensive flexibility. Users can even connect a PC (or Mac) to the projector via the D-sub 15 input. As if extremely high contrast isn't enough, the Sanyo PLV-Z5 has innovative 3D-color management that allows the viewer to adjust and save the hue, gamma curve, and level of any color. Fine-tuning the image settings enables compensation for specific conditions in every viewing environment.

PLV-Z5 projector - Sanyo digital processing
Today, everyone wants a big image for widescreen high definition. With a brightness of 1100 ANSI Lumens, the Sanyo PLV-Z5 can project images on a 100-inch screen from a mere distance of 9.8 feet (up to 20 feet). That's big even in a small room. Another factor in image quality is the 12-Bit Digital Processing IC. While the 12 bits of RGB color are streaming through the image processing IC, a small part of the Z5's "brain" is quietly analyzing each frame of image data, looking for bright scenes, dark scenes and those in between. This projector will sense a darker scene coming and automatically turn the image brightness down (through the twin iris and lamp react functions). Then, when the scene brightness up, so does the on-screen image, automatically and seamlessly. This process adds teeth to the dynamic contrast ratio to reproduce truer images.

Sanyo PLV-Z5 projector - Lens shift capability
In addition to all its technically advanced features, the Sanyo PLV-Z5 has many practical features, especially in original ideas for dust control. The lens is protected from dust by a motor-operated sliding shutter that can be opened or closed automatically by remote control. The Sanyo PLV-Z5 has easy set-up and is designed to play from just about any location. This is aided by the Z5's advanced lens shift capability (the widest in its class) that allows a consumer to (based on location from the screen) adjust to achieve a geometrically accurate and undistorted picture. The Sanyo Z5, with a 3-year warranty, has a MAP price of $1,695.00, and it will be available in mid-October. Better yet, there will be a consumer after-purchase $200, mail-in rebate running between October 20, 2006 and January 31, 2007.
