Sanyo PLV-Z60 Home Entertainment Projector

A 720p LCD projector, the PLV-Z60 features SANYO's innovative 3D color management system, a high contrast ratio of 10,000:1, an installation-friendly lens shifting function, and many of other features representing a step forward in price performance for a home theater projector.

The bright PLV-Z60 is equipped with three wide 16:9 HD LCD panels that produce a 1280 x 720 pixels (2.76 million) image. A 12-bit digital processing IC provides video decoding, scaling and gamma curve generation and coupled with the projector's 10000:1 contrast ratio, the PLV-Z60 delivers exceptional picture quality with deep, rich back levels and beautifully saturated colors, even when ambient light is present.

To facilitate ease of installation and operation, the PLV-Z60 is outfitted with SANYO's advanced lens shifting function and a 2x optical zoom, which allows projection of a 100" image from only 9.8 to 20 feet away. The side panel adjustments move the lens vertically and horizontally to project a geometrically accurate and undistorted picture. Fine-tuning of image settings including hue, gamma curve and color levels, enables compensation for specific conditions in any environment. The Advanced Mode provides a range of adjustments to further customize the PLV-Z60's image, such as lens iris adjustment, black level expansion, contrast enhancement, outlines compensation, and RGB offset. For protection of the lens, the PLV-Z60 was equipped with a motor-operated sliding shutter that opens and closes the shutter via the remote control.

A full compliment of input terminals is provided, including two HDMI connections, two sets of component video inputs, along with composite and S-video connections to ensure maximum flexibility with all types of components. The D-Sub 15 input is provided for direct connection of a PC.

The PLV-Z60 is equipped with a redesigned internal cooling structure that minimizes fan noise to 22dB in economy mode, promoting greater enjoyment during quiet passages of a film or TV show. This is critical because a 1200 lumen projector could generate a tremendous amount of heat. At this level of brightness, the fan is ‘on' most of the time and the noise can be extremely loud and disruptive, especially in smaller home theaters where the projector and the audience are in close proximity.
