QuaDrive technology adds a yellow control device to the red, green, and blue elements of the projector's 3LCD system. The idea is that if the device controls the amount of yellow light in the image automatically, it should improve color accuracy, produce a wider color gamut, and enable higher brightness levels. SANYO has implemented this technology in previous models, the PLC-XP200L and the PLC-XF1000. However, the PLC-HF1000L is SANYO's first QuaDrive projector capable of producing 2K resolution, which SANYO claims it manages without any image compression.

The PLC-HF1000L also has the ability to simultaneously display to images, in both picture-in-picture or pictue-by-picture modes. If multiple projectors are required, the new projector features a color matching function that reportedly corrects variations in hue. SANYO has also built in LAN functionality so that the projector can be controlled through standard CAT5 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 options for HD/SD-SDI and Dual Link SDI.
SANYO's PLC-HF1000L will be available in November 2010 with an MSRP of $34,995.
