Optoma has beefed up its popular TH1060P DLP projector. The TH1060P now boasts a 4,500-lumen brightness rating—an increase of 1,000 lumens. The TH1060P features a native 1920x1080 resolution and a 2500:1 contrast ratio. It offers video, S-Video, component, VGA, and dual HDMI inputs as well as audio inputs. Its new boost in brightness makes the TH1060P ideal for large conference rooms and boardrooms where high ambient light is a concern. Optoma’s new TW762 features a WXGA native resolution rated at 4,000 lumens and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. The TW762 offers a 1.28 to 1.536:1 adjustable lens, and is rated for an image size between 36in. and 362in. Its 6.4lb. weight makes the TW762 both a perfect portable projector and one that is well-suited for conference rooms or board rooms.
The new Panasonic PT-FW430U projector offers great features at a great price. The PT-WF430U is a 1280x800 WXGA native-resolution display, which lines up nicely with most of today’s widescreen format laptops. It is rated for 3500 ANSI lumens brightness, and features a money-saving 6,000-hour lamp replacement cycle. It features both horizontal and vertical lens shift, allowing flexible placement in either a fixed or portable-use environment. It also features a full complement of analog and digital inputs including both DVI-I and HDMI connections, both of which are HDCP-compliant. The PT-FW430U also offers wireless content presentation with the available ET-WM200 wireless module and the ability to project wirelessly from an iPad, iPhone, or other iOS device using Panasonic’s free Wireless Projector app available in Apple’s App Store.
Projectiondesign’s F35 WQXGA single-chip DLP projector sets a new highresolution performance standard in corporate applications requiring extreme detail such as CAD and engineering display. The F35 WQXGA offers a native resolution of 2560x1600, a brightness rating of up to 7,500 lumens, and a contrast ratio up to 8000:1. The F35 features four digital inputs: two DVI-D and two HDMI for connection of extremely high-resolution signals. It features motorized zoom, focus, and lens shift, and a mechanical shutter. Lens options range from a .80:1 to a 2.5–4.5:1 variable.
Sanyo’s latest projectors fit nicely into the corporate environment. The PLC-WU3800 provides 1200x800 WXGA resolution and 3,800 lumens of brightness. It weighs in at less than 8lbs. making it ideal for portable use, as well as use in a conference room. It features a short-throw lens with a 1.17 to 1.87:1 throw ratio, allowing placement of the projector near the screen. Inputs include video, S-Video, VGA and HDMI. The PLC-WU3800 also features both picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture capabilities for viewing two inputs. The Sanyo PLC-WL2503 is a 2,500-lumen WXGA 1280x800 ultra-short-throw projector with built-in interactive pen functionality. It is capable of projecting an 80in. diag- onal image from a distance of 34in. This short throw eliminates the shadows encountered in typical projection systems when the presenter is near the screen. The PLC-WL2503 features connectivity for video, S-Video, VGA, and HDMI. The interactivity feature allows the presenter to draw a line or add a comment on the projection screen. Drawn data may then be saved as a JPEG image. The functionality and flexibility of the PLC-WL2503 makes it ideally suited for a small training room or conference room. For larger rooms, there’s the new PLC-WTC500AL. It features a 1290x800 WXGA native resolution, and boasts 5,000- lumen brightness and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. It has power lens shift, and offers a selection of lenses to fit nearly any throw distance requirement. Video, S-Video, VGA, and 5-BNC analog inputs and an HDMI digital input ensure that nearly any source may be used with the PLC-WTC500AL.
Sharp recently introduced four projectors ideal for corporate use. The new XG-PH80XN and XG-PH80W-N projectors are high-performance, high-lumen DLP projectors ideally suited for large meeting spaces. They both offer DLP Link 3D-compatability, and feature a dual lamp design. They also offer motorized zoom and focus, as well as motorized lens shift. Five lens options are available. The XG-PH80X-N is an XGA native resolution projector and is rated for 6,300 lumens brightness. The XG-PH80W-N is a WXGA native resolution projector rated for 5,600 lumens brightness.

The XG-SV series is 3D-ready, and features powered zoom and focus, as well as lens shift. Both models are also compatible with Sharp’s new AN-SV100T motorized swivel mount.
