The PLV-Z40000 comes with Sanyo's TopazRealHD system, which the company says produces high-quality images and has a 3D color-management system that improves color accuracy. The system uses 14-bit digital signal processing and a real-focus HD lens system that combines variable iris and lamp reactivity with a newly developed high-efficiency lens. TopazRealHD addresses changes in color phase and color level to reproduce accurate color, with approximately 216 billion color combinations possible, Sanyo says.

The 3LCD design uses inorganic LCD panels and an input frame rate of 120 frames per second to reduce motion blur and artifacts. Special interpolation frame generation technology determines the motion differences between frames and generates new frames to fill the gaps between the originals. The result, says the company, is improved resolution and a smooth presentation, even with fast-moving sports action. The projector can also display an HD source from film material in its native 24 fps rate at full 1080p resolution.

"The PLV-Z4000's ability to display very high-resolution, artifact-free images with superb color accuracy ... makes it a great choice from the standpoint of both consumers and installers," said Sam Malik, Sanyo vice president and general manager of the presentation technologies group, in a statement.

To help installers, the PLV-Z4000 has lens shifting capability that allows it to be placed or installed in numerous settings, as images can be shifted vertically up to three screen sizes and horizontally up to two screen sizes. Its short-throw capability of projecting a 100-inch diagonal image from between 10 and 20 feet away, plus its 2x zoom function, help the PLV-Z4000 display a large image in almost any sized room and from almost any mounting location, according to the company.

The Sanyo PLV-Z4000 is scheduled to release at the end of this month, with an MSRP of $2,495.
