Sanyo Announces LP-Z3000 3LCD Home Theater Projector
SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. (SANYO) announces the LP-Z3000 as its most advanced projector for consumer-use home theaters. The LP-Z3000 features ‘Dynamic Predictive Frame Interpolation Technology’ that utilizes speeds of 120Hz*1 in the industry’s first*2 5:5 pull-down*3 mode for incredibly smooth video projection even for scenes with intense motion, a super high contrast ratio of 65,000:1 allowing jet-black color reproduction, and a whisper-quiet cooling fan at 19-decibels*4 permitting viewers to hear even the most quiet and sensitive scenes.
Full HD home-use projector shipments worldwide are expected to reach approximately two hundred thousand units by the end of FY 2008. Also, the market for these projectors is expected to increase by double globally, potentially reaching as much as four hundred thousand in annual shipments by the end of FY 2010 (according to internal company studies). With the use of HD signal sources becoming more widespread, projectors capable of meeting the growing needs will become more in demand. Since SANYO’s entry into the home-use projector market in 2002 with its highly acclaimed “Z” series, there has been increasing demand for quality home-use projectors. SANYO is very proud to announce the addition of its most advanced projector for consumer-use home theaters.
Regarding this advanced top-level projector, Dr. Keiichi Yodoshi, Vice President of SANYO Electric Co., Ltd, and Head of the Projector Division, said, “Avid movie watchers can rejoice with the LP-Z3000 home theater projector. With incredible smooth video, jet-black color reproduction and whisper-quiet operation, this projector is certain to find its place into any true home theater. SANYO is committed to bringing the movie theater experience to the living room with our most advanced home-use projector.”
This projector will also be shown at the Photokina 2008 Show in Cologne, Germany.
