Sanyo Announces Wireless WXGA LCD Projector

Sanyo has added a portable widescreen LCD projector to its lineup. The PLC-WXU700 features high-speed 802.11n wireless LAN capability, video streaming, full WXGA resolution, 3,800 lumens, and compatibility with the Windows Vista Network Projector function.

Sanyo has added a portable widescreen LCD projector to its lineup. The PLC-WXU700 features high-speed 802.11n wireless LAN capability, video streaming, full WXGA resolution, 3,800 lumens, and compatibility with the Windows Vista Network Projector function, according to the company.

"The widescreen WXGA ultra-portable projector market is expected to grow significantly in 2009," said Mark Holt, vice president and general manager for Sanyo's Presentation Technologies Division, in a statement.

The PLC-WXU700 is the company's first projector to offer IEEE 802.11n high-speed wireless LAN capabilities, increasing transmission speeds currently available for Sanyo portable projectors that have wireless functionality. Video streaming support allows playback of video stored on a computer's hard drive while the file is being streamed or downloaded to the projector, the company says. The projector's video streaming and playback is compatible with MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and WMV files.

With Windows Embedded CE 6.0 software, the PLC-WXU700 can also be used as a network projector with almost any computer running Windows Vista. The content on a LAN-based PC monitor can be transmitted wirelessly to the projector, reportedly eliminating complicated setup time loading special programs or drivers. Opening the Windows Vista Network Projector function on a PC initiates a search for the projector, and completes the connection.

Possible screen sizes range from 40 to 300 inches, with 85 percent uniformity from a 275-watt projection lamp. The 7.9-pound projector includes a Memory Viewer Function, so images and video saved on a portable USB memory drive can be instantly read and projected without a computer. Other ports include RS-232 and USB-B (mouse controller).

The PLC-WXU700 will be available June 2009 with an MSRP of $2,995.
