Sanyo claims brightest projector

Sanyo portable projector

Sanyo on Wednesday announced its LP-XU106 portable LCD projector, which it claims is the highest brightness ultra portable projector in its class, at 4,500 lumens. The LP-XU106 weighs about 7.5lbs and has a 1,000:1 contrast ratio along with a 1.6x zoom lens. A corner keystone correction function lets users place the projector at an offset angle from the screen or wall both vertically and horizontally without distorting the image.

The LP-XU106 otherwise sports an Ethernet jack for connecting to networks, can be mounted upside down, can freeze images and has a built-in presentation timer to help users pace their showings. A color-board mode compensates for colored walls or blackboards to display true colors. Connections involve two VGA inputs as well as single component, RCA and S-video jacks.

The LP-XU106 will launch on November 20th in Japan, priced at the equivalent of $611. [via Akihabara]

    They get cheaper and brighter all the time!

    What is the resolution though? Really would prefer DVI or display port input too.
