Sanyo’s new PLC-XP100L portable LCD projector uses one 330-watt lamp to crank out 6,500 lumens, which the company calls the “highest brightness in its class.” Of course, that brightness only lasts as long as the lamp does, so Sanyo has developed an Active Maintenance Filter (AMF) system to reduce maintenance and extend lamp life. The new AMF system perceives dirt by detecting the speed of air flow through the projector and automatically advances the filter to the next one in the cartridge. Each cartridge filter is good for up 10 automatic filter changes, with only one physical exchange of the cartridge. It is replaceable with a single touch, and the projector can be used without any additional filter maintenance for up to 10,000 projector hours. And it’s a “green” filter — it doesn’t use any metal screws, therefore making it a renewable resource, or fully recyclable. By adding this filter cartridge, the projector can be installed in hard-to reach locations, like ceilings.
