If there were Oscars for home theater projectors, the new PLV-Z1 from Sanyo would clean up. For example, as the winner of the Oscar for the best price-performance ratio, for the most elegant design and a special award for the most extraordinary 16: 9 cinema experience in its class.
Until now, movie buffs had to dig deep into their pockets to add a wide screen cinema to their home; in exchange they received a heavy, space-hungry projector. The new Sanyo PLV-Z1 is the first home theater projector on the market that offers a true 16: 9 format in a handy size and astonishingly limited weight. Despite its high-class features, the PLV-Z1 is readily affordable even for "normal film fans" too. The projector's illumination of 700 ANSI lumens and exceptional 800: 1 contrast ratio in particular were previously reserved for high-end devices only. In addition, a newly developed optical system ensures optimum contrast. The design is unique as well. The robust, silver-black magnesium cabinet is discreet yet so stylish, the projector can be integrated unobtrusively and elegantly in any living room. Inside its aesthetic housing the PLV-Z1 contains even more features: With the horizontal and vertical manual lens shift function, the position of the PLV-Z1 with respect to the projection screen is fully adjustable; a manual zoom and vertical keystone correction add the finishing touches to ensure that your feature presentation appears perfectly aligned on the screen. The projector's comfortable features include an incredibly quiet fan system (28dB, ECO Mode) and 3D Automatic Uniformity Correction Controller, which ensures a uniformly illuminated image at all times. The PLV-Z1 meets professional home theater demands as well thanks to its HDTV compatibility.
