Sanyo adds QuaDrive to 2K projector

Sanyo has incorporated its QuaDrive technology into a 2K resolution projector, to create the PLC-HF1000L.

The native widescreen 3LCD projector produces 10,000 ANSI lumen brightness and is aimed at the mid to large venue presentation market.

QuaDrive adds a yellow colour control device to the red, green and blue elements of the projector's 3LCD system. Sanyo claims that by automatically controlling the amount of yellow light in the image, it improves colour accuracy, produces a wider colour gamut and enables higher brightness levels.

The projector has dual high-output lamps and three internal mirrors.

Sanyo’s Durable Inorganic Optical System (D.I.O.S.) works in tandem with QuaDrive to produce a 3,000:1 contrast ratio. The projector utilises an Active Maintenance Filter (AMF) system, which monitors the intake air volume through the filter and automatically advances the "cartridge-like" filter media to provide a clean surface once reduced airflow through the filter is detected.

The PLC-HF10000L can simultaneously display two images, in either picture-in-picture or picture-by-picture modes. When additional projectors are required, its Colour Matching function is designed to correct variations in hue when more than one projector is used. Edge Blending allows multiple images to be presented on the same screen without sharply defined borders, such as when more than one projector is used to create an extremely large image.

Sanyo's PJNet Built-in LAN networking facilitates control of the projector or a group of projectors through standard CAT5 network cabling. For presentation applications where necessary, a mechanical shutter system allows operators to instantly shut off light transmission. Input options include HDMI 1.3; DVI-D; D-sub 15 pin RGB; BNC for RGBHV and CV/Y-Pb/Cb-Pr/Cr; and S-Video, with optional boards available for HD/SD-SDI and Dual Link SDI.
