Sanyo unwraps bright portable projectors

updated 09:55 am EDT, Mon May 12, 2008

Sanyo XC50 and XC55

Sanyo on Monday bolstered its projector lineup with two X series portable LCD projectors. Both the XC50 and XC55 are built to be bright with 2,600 and 3,100 lumens of brightness respectively, giving them enough clarity to be useful without a dark room. Either is also built to be easy to run and lock down; an active maintenance filter lets owners easily swap in a new filter without dismantling the projector, while a security bar permits anyone to easily tie the unit to a table with a cable lock.

The projectors output at a native 1024x768 and are aimed at computer users with DVI and VGA inputs as well as RCA and S-video inputs for analog sources. Sanyo first launches the XC50 and XC55 in Japan, where they go on sale on July 11th for the equivalent prices of $3,029 and $3,537. Sanyo regularly exports its projectors to the US and is likely to offer one or both at a lower price in the country.
