The QuaDrive engine adds a yellow color control device to the existing red, green and blue elements. SANYO's Active Maintenance Cleaner (AMC) system protects critical components for an alleged 12,000 hours before a filter change is required. Also, while the standard filter will help protect against dust, SANYO is also offering an optional "Smoke Filter" that can help protect against smoke from sources like cigarettes and other fine airborne particles that could enter the projector.
To allow use in a very wide range of venues, eleven lens options are available in a variety of focal lengths to accommodate any projector to screen distance. A power zoom with focus control can be remotely operated, as can a motorized lens shift that operates both horizontally and vertically.
Where multiple images are required, the PLC-HF15000L can simultaneously display two images, in either picture-in-picture or picture-by-picture modes. For presentations utilizing multiple projectors, aligned either horizontally or vertically to create a single larger image, variations in image quality between projectors is reportedly eliminated through SANYO's Edge Blending, Color Matching and Constant Brightness functions. Color Matching is designed to try to correct any variations in hue between adjacent images, Edge Blending works to smooth the transition point between projected images by compensating for differences in brightness, and Constant Brightness works to create uniform brightness across the entire image.
Built-in LAN networking facilitates control of the projector or a group of projectors through CAT5 network cabling. Input options include HDMI 1.3; DVI-D; D-sub 15 pin RGB; BNC for RGBHV and CV/Y-Pb/Cb-Pr/Cr; and S-Video, with optional boards available for HD/SD-SDI and Dual Link SDI.
The PLC-HF15000L is scheduled for release in December 2010 with an MSRP of $44,995.
