Sanyo PLV-Z2000 Projector
SANYO introduced the PLV-Z2000 1080p LCD projector during CEDIA
EXPO this week in Denver, CO. The PLV-Z2000 features a new 3D
color management system with a stated contrast ratio of 15,000:1, along
with an advanced lens shifting function and an extremely quiet fan
system. The PLV-Z2000 will be available in the U.S. in October 2007
with a MSRP of $2,995.99.
This is a full 1080p projector that handles 1080p/60 as well as 1080p/24 according to the reps at the Sanyo booth. A "Topaz
Real HD technology" system has a 3D color management system that addresses changes
in color phase and color level to obtain accurate color reproduction.
The PLV- Z2000's color management system provides 1110 times more color
combinations than SANYO's 720p PLV-Z5, a total of approximately 216
billion possible color combinations. This new color management system
was designed to optimize the potential of Deep Color via the projectors
two HDMI 1.3 inputs.
Rated at 1200 lumens, the PLV-Z2000 has a rated 15,000:1 contrast ratio for deep black levels. The PLV-Z2000 uses a Durable Inorganic Optical System (DIOS), which includes the projector's LCD panels and polarizing film.
The PLV-Z2000 is outfitted with a pretty sweet lens
shift function. When coupled with the projector's short throw
capability and 2x zoom, the PLV-Z2000 can create a large screen image
in any size room and from virtually any location. The lens shifting
function allows wide-range shifting up or down to three screen sizes
and left to right to two screen sizes. The throw design of the
PLV-Z2000, is capable of projecting a 100-inch diagonal image from 10
to 20 feet away, which makes it extremely suitable for small to
mid-size home theaters.
The PLV-Z2000 is equipped with the "industry's quietest fan" (according to Sanyo), a large
aperture, low noise Sirocco cooling fan that never rises above 19dB in
the economy mode. This fan is quiet!
