Sanyo Wi-Fi N projector

Sanyo has recently announced the upcoming release of the industry's first 802.11n Wi-Fi-enabled projector, the LP-WXU700. The advance makes it the fastest wireless data projector on the market and has enough bandwidth to play videos, not just slideshows, over the network connection. When used with Windows Vista PCs, it can stream MPEG-1/2/4 and WMV videos wirelessly; other platforms can use the Wi-Fi to remotely administer the system. The LP-WXU700 has a 1280x800 resolution, a 500:1 contrast ratio and a brightness of 3,800 lumens.

Otherwise, there is a LAN port for wired Internet and PC connections, an HDMI input and a USB port for connecting external drives. The remaining connections include a VGA port, composite video, S-video, analog audio connections and a 3.5mm audio jack. The projector's 0.74-inch 3LCD panel can throw up images as large as 100 inches from 8.2 to 13 feet away. The lens has a 1.6x optical zoom ratio. There is a built-in 1W speaker, and the LP-WXU700 weighs less than 8lbs.

The LP-WXU700 is due to ship in Japan on June 19th for the equivalent of $6,430; most Sanyo projectors reach the US sometime after their original introductions. [via Impress]
