    ANAHEIM, Calif., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- INFOCOMM -- SANYO, one of the
 world's largest manufacturers of projectors is 'In Tune with Networking"
 this week at INFOCOMM when they announce the high-luminance PLC-XF47 and
 PLC-XP100L LCD Projectors, which will offer SANYO's exclusive PJ-NET
 ORGANIZER Plus C for monitoring projector functions remotely.
     Projectors are commonly used for traditional and general activities
 such as business or educational presentations and seminars. However,
 applications for projectors continue to diversify, primarily due to the
 optimization of high luminance, high resolution, and projector
 miniaturization. the demand with two new high luminance projectors equipped
 with redesigned optical engines and networking features.
     "SANYO has always lead the industry in value-priced, high brightness
 projectors for large venues but the PLC-XF47 takes us to a new level with
 optional non-compressed HD wireless capabilities," says Mark Holt, the Vice
 President and General Manager for SANYO's Presentation Technologies
 Division. "The PLC-XP100L breaks ground as the brightest LCD projector in
 its class with some exciting new maintenance features."
     The PLC-XF47 is the brightest professional-grade LCD projector in the
 industry with 15,000 lumens and it is completely compatible with throwing
 extra-large images. The PLC-XP100L has the highest luminance for a portable
 LCD projector with 6500 lumens.
     Each is outfitted with the PJ-NET ORGANIZER Plus C. In conjunction with
 the PJ-NET MASTER Ver. 2.0 software all projector functions are monitored
 and controlled remotely. The camera function of the PJ-NET ORGANIZER Plus C
 captures still images and allows projectionists to confirm whether or not
 the image is actually being projected, while monitoring the situation from
 a remote location.
     Both projectors use the Durable Inorganic Optical System (DIOS), which
 includes the projectors LCD panels and polarizing film. This highly durable
 optical engine increases the overall reliability and performance of these
 new models.
     As the industry's brightest LCD projects at 15,000 lumens, the PLC-XF47
 is equipped with Four (4) 330-watt lamps. This projector is able to throw
 extra- large projections, meeting the needs of large gatherings,
 conferences and special events. In the unlikely event that the lamp burns
 out, the projector is equipped with a failsafe feature to ensure the image
 is not interrupted.
     In addition to wired networking capabilities, the PLC-XF47 is the first
 SANYO projector to provide a complete HD-WIRELESS System, which is capable
 of receiving uncompressed 720p and 1080i data wirelessly, from distances
 approximately 100 feet away with less than one millisecond of latency. The
 system is robust enough to provide independent frame-by-frame
 transmissions. It fully supports video data rates of up to 1.5Gbps and
 operates in the 20MHz bandwidth (conforming to worldwide 5GHz regulations).
     To accommodate projection in a variety of locations, the PLC-XF47
 accepts up to twelve different lenses to adjust for room and screen size.
     The Hybrid Crosstalk Canceller eliminates ghosting of images and
 reduces signal interference on the LCD panels. Intelligent Sharpness
 Control automatically analyzes the signal components to select the best
 sharpness setting for clearer sharper pictures. For increased flexibility,
 the PLC-XF47 uses the Multi-Versatile Interface Platform, which
 accommodates a wide variety of exchangeable interface boards allowing user
 to select the best solution for the desired application.

     The PLC-XP100L uses a single 330-watt lamp, which results in the
 brightest portable LCD projector with 6500 lumens. SANYO equipped the
 PLC-XP100L with a full 10bit video circuit for extraordinary picture
 quality. This lighter and more mobile projector is equipped with the
 exclusive Active Maintenance Filter System that automatically detects
 airflow and advances clean filter material when needed. The result is less
 maintenance and increased reliability. Using this system, filter cartridges
 can last up to 10,000 hours. Due to its mobility and the Up/Down/Left/Right
 Lens Shift, providing highly versatile adjustments, the PLC-XP100L is
