Sanyo Releases PLC-XTC50L Projector

Featuring the Industry’s First*1 “lamp selection system”
Easier projector maintenance and highly functional projector automatically switches lamps

SANYO Canada is proud to announce another unique projector to its broad line-up, the PLC-XTC50L. This new commercial-use projector features the industry’s first*1 ‘lamp selection system’ promoting easier projector maintenance, approximately 6,000 hours*2 without the need of lamp maintenance, as well as offering other recent features simplifying maintenance for projectors, such as SANYO’s proprietary ‘Active Maintenance Filter’ (AMF) that saves on maintenance by automatically detecting clogs in the airflow to the system and scrolls the reel in the cartridge of filters to the next clean filter. The projector also features advanced lens shifting, even performing keystone corrections both horizontally and vertically while being able to be positioned or installed at almost any angle and setting. The PLC-XTC50L will be on sale in Canada starting from January, 2009.

Along with the updates over the previous model in terms of higher brightness, the use of projectors is expanding in locations such as large halls and rooms with high ceilings and harder to reach projector
settings. SANYO provides easier maintenance options for its projectors with this new solution for replacing lamps. SANYO already provides simple maintenance option such as the AMF cartridge-type filter system. With this latest feature, SANYO will continue to provide projectors with the simplest maintenance, filled with features, allowing a variety of projector settings to meet each individual need.
