The Sanyo PLV-Z3 LCD Projector has a large 1280x720 resolution, a 2000:1 Contrast Ratio and 800 ANSI Lumens of brightness.

The Sanyo PLV-Z3 projector will turn your home into a movie theater, state of the art technology and user friendly equipment means that you can concentrate entirely on perfect movie enjoyment.

Incorporates a 10 bit color technology, 2000:1 contrast ratio, one billion colors, constant color optimization with the 3D-AUCC system, HDTV and true 16:9 format. Discover a complete great image quality.


TOPAZreal A Future Technology

With its perfectly coordinated motorized iris and automatic lamp control, the projector ensures that brightness is adjusted to match the current image content. As a result, the PLV-Z3 always renders images with optimal contrast.

10-bit Processing

10-bit true image processing has been used in this category of projector for the first time ever. Compared with the 8-bit technology that has been used to date, this offers four times more grayscales (1,024 instead of 256) and can display more than one billion colors compared with the 16.6 million previously used.

In practice, this means that the projector can display more finely detailed images and a significantly higher color depth thanks to the display of a considerably greater number of intermediary colors and shades.

The integration of these three functions - motorized iris, automatic lamp control and 10-bit image processing - is grouped by Sanyo under the TOPAZreal (TOtal image Processing for Advanced Z series) concept and sets higher standards for quality in home theater.

High Quality Home Theater

HDTV and true 16:9 format make this a reality. With its 16:9 format, the projector produces as authentic a movie theater feeling as you could expect from a good home theater projector.

High Contrast and Brightness

Another feature that is also unusual in this range is the high contrast ratio of 2000:1 - with a brightness level of 800 ANSI lumens. The most effective images are thus projected as realistically and vividly as they should be: The endless realms of space are deep black and not just gray and night scenes impress with its unbelievable depth.

Constant Color Optimization with 3D-AUCC System

With the 3D-AUCC (Automatic Uniformity Correction Controller), the projector is equipped with another high end technology. The 3D-AUCC allows you to subtly adjust the image signals and optimizes color reproduction in sensitive areas, such as color transitions and skin tones.

Lens Shift

Projectors cannot always be perfectly aligned with the screen. However, with its lens shift and Keystone Correction features, the projector is equipped with everything that you need to produce a perfect image each time. The horizontal and vertical lens shift function, which can be adjusted using two small wheels on the front of the projector, provides you with a high level of flexibility.

Keystone Correction Function

The vertical keystone correction feature (+/- 20 degree) helps to deliver perfect images and eliminates keystoning resulting from vertically angled projections.

Quiet Projector

With an operating noise level of just 23 dB (Eco), it is one of the quietest projector in its range. This means that you can concentrate fully on the sound effects in your favorite films.

Easy Operation

The automatic input selector recognizes the incoming signal and configures itself automatically. Thanks to the clearly structured on screen menu, all settings can be changed quickly and easily. The illuminated remote control is a real bonus in the darkness - you can make all major adjustments directly at the push of a button.

Three Lamp Modes

The projector can be operated with three different lamp modes:

Normal mode: Power consumption: 210 Watt
Illumination: 100 percent
Eco mode: Power consumption: 185 Watt
Illumination: approx. 88 percent
Auto mode: Independent switching between Eco and Normal mode. For dark scenes, Eco mode delivers greater contrast. For bright scenes, Normal mode increases color saturation.

More Leeway During Installation Thanks To Side Venting

Right from the start, the perfect movie theater experience is a question of room and the ideal position of the projector. The projector offers you a high level of flexibility when installing the projector since the warm air is discharged at the sides and not out the back.

In contrast to many other projectors, you therefore have more leeway as you need less of a gap with the back wall.

Triple Protection Against Troublesome Dust

Dust is the greatest enemy of any projector, impairing image quality again and again. To counter this problem, the PLV-Z3 is protected in three ways. Firstly, the integrated membrane air filter prevents dust particles from being sucked into the inside of the projector.

Secondly, an automatic cleaning function can be activated via the menu. And, finally, the vacuum pump included with the accessories allows you to clean the panel manually.

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.
