TWICE: Sanyo unveiled at Infocomm what it is calling 4LCD technology, said to expand the color reproduction by adding a color control device to conventional 3LCD engines.
The first projector to use the system — model PLC-XP200L — will be targeted at commercial markets, but the company expects home theater applications to evolve in time.
The projector delivers 1,024 by 768 resolution, 7,000 lumens of brightness and a 2,200:1 contrast ratio.
The additional Color Control Device in the 4LCD optical engine automatically control the amount of yellow light in the image, producing higher luminosity with improved color accuracy and clarity, Sanyo said.
Sanyo said it developed a new high-speed image compensating LSI for the 4LCD engine. The combination of the 4LCD engine and the new LSI allows for up to 20 percent more color space than conventional projectors. With the controlled yellow light, Sanyo’s Advanced Color Correction technology separates each color histogram for naturally rich colors.
