- Further expanding their line-up of DLP projectors for professional and business applications, SANYO introduces the PDG-DWT50L tabletop multimedia projector

CHATSWORTH, CA and LAS VEGAS, NV. - January 7, 2008 - - SANYO, one of the world's largest manufacturers of front projectors introduces the PDG -DWT50L DLP projector during CES this week in Las Vegas, NV.

'While SANYO continues to lead the industry in LCD projectors." says Mark Holt, the Vice President and General Manager for SANYO's Presentation Technologies Division. "Here at CES we are answering our customers requests for full -featured DLP projectors with the addition of the wide screen PDG -DWT50L to our line -up."

The PDG -DWT50's dual lamp system facilitates a super -bright 4500 lumens with a 2100:1 contrast ratio, featuring Texas Instruments Dynamic Black™ for superior black level. The widescreen 1280 x768 native resolution is compatible with 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i sources. It is also compatible with all computer formats including UXGA, SXGA+,SXGA, WXGA, XGA, SVGA, VGA and MAC.

A simple lens exchange system uses a single release button to conveniently install up to five different lenses dependent on the required throw distance. Additionally, SANYO's exclusive Up/Down/Left/Right lens shift accommodates greater placement flexibility.

The projector also features Texas Instruments BrilliantColor™ which improves color performance. An optional six -segment color wheel (RGBCMY) is interchangeable with the standard four -segment color wheel (RGBW) to maximize either color or brightness depending on the customer's needs and/or the environment. The maintenance cover offers easy removal for quick replacement of lamps and color wheels.

A variety of inputs are provided including DVI -D, RGB (D -Sub15 and BNC (x5)), Component Video, S -Video and Composite. A standard RJ45 LAN connector allows for complete control and administration of the PDG -DWT50 via a network. Projector status can be monitored and all functions controlled through a web browser. A notification can be automatically sent to a system's integrator via e -mail whenever the projector encounters a problem.

The exclusive Easy Power Off function allows the projector to be turned off (even when an image is being projected) using a power strip equipped with a switch and a breaker. The On Start function allows the projector to be turned on by supplied AC power.

Additional DLP options from SANYO include the PDG -DXT10L and the DSU20N. The PDG -DXT10L is virtually identical to the PDG -DWT50. However, the PDG -DXT10L is slightly brighter, rated at 5200 lumens, and offers a XGA (1024 X 768) native resolution. The super lightweight PDG -DSU20N, coming in at 6 lbs., is a value priced model aimed to fill the educational and mobile projection market where budgets are tight but performance is essential. The PDG -DSU20 is a straightforward projector with SVGA (800 X 600) resolution that is sufficiently bright (2000 lumens) for the applications it was designed for. The projector is ideal for usage in classrooms, boardrooms and other small gatherings for video playback or small presentations.

All models are currently shipping and sell for the following MSRP's:

PDG -DWT50L $6995.00
PDG -DXT10L $6995.00
PDG -DSU20N $695.00
