If you're looking for a lot of projection power for a small space the Sanyo PDG-DXL2000 XGA Ultra Short-Throw Multimedia Projector may just be what you're looking for. With 2,000 ANSI lumens, a 2,000:1 contrast ratio and a ten watt speaker it has the audio and video power for a wide variety of venues from a small office to a full auditorium. But fitting a big image into a tight spot is where it excels.
The PDG-DX2000 is what's called an "ultra short-throw" projector. That means it doesn't have to be far from a screen to project a large image. For example it can project an image 6.6' wide diagonally just 12.6" away from the screen.
It's useful in a broad array of situations because it's so versatile. It's got an HDMI input and it can accept and project 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition images. It can also handle PAL, SECAM, NTSC, NTSC4.43, PAL-M, and PAL-N signals. Along with its 100 - 240 V AC 50 / 60 Hz power supply there are few countries on earth where the PDG-DXL2000 can't do the job. It can also display closed captioning from programming sources that provide it, ensuring your whole audience will understand your presentation.
The projector's native resolution is XGA (1,024 by 768) but it can accept and scale signals at WUXGA, WXGA, UXGA, SXGA, SVGA and VGA resolutions.
Audio and video are top notch. If the 10W speaker isn't powerful enough to fill your viewing room with sound you can plug in powered speakers (not supplied) and control the volume from the remote control. (That's called variable audio out or VAO.)
The picture is formed by a Texas Instruments DLP DMD chip, which you'll find in many brands of projectors because it so well-respected. Most projector imaging systems create images from just the primary colors: red, green and blue. The DLP adds those colors' complements: cyan, magenta and yellow. Texas Instruments calls the system BrilliantColor and it increases the brightness of the colors by 50 percent over DLP systems that don't have it.
In a tiny room or a full auditorium, here in the US or around the world, projecting from video or computer sources, the PDG-DXL2000 is both powerful and versatile.
Ultra Short-Throw Projector
Projecting a large 6.6' diagonal image from the world's shortest projection distance of about 12.6" is achieved by a newly developed ultra short-focus mirror optical system. This projector is perfect for giving effective lectures or presentations in educational settings. This projector can be placed on a variety of locations including table tops, walls, ceilings, or floors.
Large Screen 3D Projection Capability
The "Frame Sequential Display Format", a technology that rapidly alternates between left-eye and right-eye images for 3D technology, enables the viewing of 3D images when wearing 3D glasses.
3D presentations in limited spaces are available, thanks to the 3D and short-focus projection technologies.
Corporate customers can use the new products for more realistic and effective presentations, such as 3D product presentations for sales pitches, or design evaluations.
In the entertainment market, the new projectors can be used in various new ways such as the projection of 3D games in an amusement arcade, or the display of a high-impact 3D dinosaur in a natural history museum.
NVIDIA 3D Vision
The PDG-DXL2000 is compatible with NVIDIA 3D VISION. NVIDIA 3D Vision PC supports over 400 existing PC games which keep increasing in number. You can easily experience the continued expansion of the 3D world with digital photographs, Blu-ray 3D movies, streamings and videos.
The PDG-DXL2000 is equipped with Sanyo's exclusive PJ Network Interface for wired networking. This is a common feature among Sanyo's extensive line of commercial projectors. Networking allows the monitoring of projector functions and operation remotely via a web browser. Emails can be sent automatically to report operating status.
Compact Design for Saving Space in Installation
The use of a short-throw lens makes it possible to move the projector from the center of the classroom or meeting room, to a spot closer to the screen. This frees up more room space, and cuts down on the possibility of viewers blocking the image with their shadows.
Closed captioning provides the audio portion of a television signal as printed words on the projected screen. This feature is helpful for hearing impaired individuals and for those learning English as a second language. It's also perfect for noisy environments.
2,000 ANSI Lumens and a 2,000:1 Contrast Ratio
The PDG-DXL2000 projects an image bright enough to punch through the ambient light required to let your audience take notes.
The Security Function helps you to ensure security of the projector. With the Key Lock Function, you can lock the operation on the top control or remote control. PIN Code Lock Function prevents unauthorized use of the projector.
LAN Network Function
This projector is loaded with the Wired Function. You can manage the projector via network. For details, refer to the owner's manual Network Setup and Operation section.
Direct Off Function
With the Direct Off Function, you can disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet or turn off the breaker even during projection.
Simple Computer System Setting
The projector has a multi-scan system to conform to almost all computer output signals quickly.
In addition to its 100 - 240 VAC 50 / 60Hz power supply the PDG-DXL2000's international credentials include its ability to handle NTSC, PAL, SECAM, NTSC4.43, PAL-M / PAL-N television signals. It can also play 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition signals. It can handle more than two dozen PC and Mac resolution / frequency sets.
