The Sanyo PLC-WU3800 WXGA Ultra-Portable Multimedia Projector pumps out vivid, sharp images at 3800 lumens and a 500:1 contrast ratio thanks to the combination of its 3LCD imaging panels (the part that creates the image) and 275W lamp.


Its large 0.59" 3LCD imaging panels deliver sharper and brighter images with superior grayscale detail. Smooth, seamless color combined with an unparalleled grayscale range delivers incredible detail to every image the PLC-WU3800 displays. And it can deliver them in 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition and NTSC, PAL and SECAM video formats.

Transfer images and video to the included USB drive and you can leave your PC behind. Just bring the USB drive with you and once you plug it into the projector you're good to go.

You can also plug the projector into a wired LAN and get the usual capabilities like remote monitoring and control of the projector and having it email you with status reports. But you can also do cool stuff like project the same computer image to five projectors, or conversely, to operate up to 100 projectors simultaneously.

You've heard of picture-in-picture, right The PLC-WU3800 can do that but it can also do picture-by-picture. For example you could display computer output on one side of the screen and a commentator on the other.

Of course the PLC-WU3800 isn't all new-fangled bells and whistles. It's still got the features you've come to expect in a projector, like closed captioning. Closed captioning enables your entire audience to follow along when you're projecting from sources that provide it. It also comes in handy when presenting to people learning English as a second language and whenever you're projecting in a noisy environment.


High Brightness and Compact Body
The PLC-WU3800 weighs less than 8 lb. (3.6kg) and delivers true WXGA picture quality in a compact designed package. This new projector leads to a brightness of 3800 lumens. It provides brilliant and clear defined images in a conference room or lecture room

True WXGA (1280 x 800) Resolution
Compatible with wide screen laptops for a true wide screen WXGA (16:10) presentation. It has an HDMI input terminal which is the most popular port for wide aspect ratio projectors

Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture Function
Capable of projecting two images simultaneously by using either "P-in-P" and "P-by-P" functions. These functions are useful in video conferencing and educational systems

Short Throw Lens with 1.6x Optical Zoom
PLC-WU3800 is equipped with a 1.6x optical zoom lens that allows screen size and throw distance adjustment for flexible installation. The short-focus type lens allows large screen image projections with a short throw distance. The projector enables 100" (2.5 m) screen projection at the distance of 8.3 to 13.2' (2.5 to 4 m)

Auto Setup Function
PLC-WU3800 provides auto setup function that corrects keystone shaped distortion by searching for an input signal and detecting projector incline, automatically adjusting for keystone picture distortion. This auto keystone correction, auto input search and auto PC adjustment make it easy and simple to use

Wired LAN (RJ-45)
This model is equipped with Wired LAN (RJ-45) that allows you to manage and control the projector via the network. Providing access to check the projector's operating time of the lamp, control the projector and receive any warning notifications by email.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
