"The importance of creating electronics with the environment in mind cannot be overstated," said Mark Holt, vice president and general manager for Sanyo's Presentation Technologies Group, in a statement. "With these two portable projectors, Sanyo is taking the lead in providing products that consume less power when in stand-by mode."

Company officials claim the PLC-XW250 and PLC-XW200 are Sanyo's most ecological data projectors to date. The eco power stand-by mode saves approximately 80 percent of the energy that was consumed by previous Sanyo projectors. Redesigning the electrical circuits enabled the two projectors to comply with the EuP-Directive Lot 6 and the EU RoHS Directive.

Both projectors employ Sanyo's Easy Setup Function, as well as Auto Input Signal Search, Auto Vertical Keystone Correction, and an Input Guidance Function. The Auto Input Signal Search automatically detects the input signal and makes necessary internal settings. The Auto Vertical Keystone Correction function automatically detects its position angle and corrects for any image distortion. Lastly, the Guidance Function displays on-screen connection instructions when there's no input signal detected.

The PLC-XW250 and PLC-XW200 use the existing LAN terminal to be controlled and managed via network connection. The LAN connection supports setting power on/off, switching input signals, projecting from a remote location, and monitoring lamp conditions and usage time. By using Sanyo's PJ Network Manager software, administrators can centrally monitor operating conditions of up to 200 projectors on a single network.

Providing a native resolution of 1280x768, the projectors can display HD material with an aspect ratio of 4:3. The company says the models' compact dimensions and light weight make them suitable for educational or business presentation applications. The PLC-XW250 emits 2,600 lumens, the PLC-XW200 2,200 lumens.

The PLC-XW250 and PLC-XW200 will be available this month with suggested retail prices of $895 and $795, respectively.
