Sanyo PLC-WL2500 Overview

  • 1Description

The WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution Sanyo PLC-WL2500 Ultra Short-Throw Multimedia Projector can create big bright and vivid (2500 lumens at a 500:1 contrast ratio) images in very close quarters. How close? Imagine projecting an 80 inch image at just 13 inches away from the screen.

Its 0.59" 3LCD imaging panels (the part that creates the image) deliver sharper and brighter images. Smooth, seamless color combined with an unparalleled grayscale range delivers incredible detail to every image displayed by the WL2500.

And your WL2500 is 3D-ready. You bring the 3-D glasses and programming. Your WL2500 is ready to bring you everything from fantastic scientific visualizations to stunning 3-D movies and immersive 3D games.

In addition to 3D programming your WL2500 can project 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition signals as well as standard video in the NTSC, NTSC4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N and SECAM standard video formats, which cover much of the world. Rounding out its international credentials, the WL2500 boasts a 100 – 240 V AC, 50/60 Hz power supply and a 23 language OSD (on-screen display).

And to help make sure you get your point across when presenting, your WL2500 can display all four channels (CC1, CC2, CC3 and CC4) of closed captioning from program sources that provide CC.

2500 Lumens at a 500:1 Contrast Ratio (Full On/Full Off)
At 2500 lumens and a 500:1 contrast ratio the WL2500's got plenty of projection power for large rooms that are less than theater-dark.
The World's Shortest Projection Distance
Project a large 80 inch diagonal image from the world's shortest projection distance of about 13 inches. This is achieved by a newly developed ultra short-focus mirror optical system. The WL2500 is perfect for giving effective lectures or presentations in educational settings, because, when ceiling mounted, you don't have to worry about the presenter casting a shadow over the screen or being annoyed by light glare. The maximum projected image size is 110 inches diagonal. The WL2500 can be placed in a variety of locations including table tops, walls, ceiling, or floors and it can also come in handy for rear projection applications where space behind the screen is often at a premium.
Large-Screen 3D Projection Capability
The "Frame Sequential Display Format," a technology that rapidly alternates between left-eye and right-eye images for its 3D effect enables you to view 3D images when wearing 3D glasses. You bring the 3D programming and 3D glasses. Your WL2500 will bring you fantastic 3D images. (The WL2500 is compatible with both DLP Link and IR formats.)
Networking Capability
The WL2500 is equipped with Sanyo's exclusive PJ Network Interface for wired networking. Networking allows you to monitor projector functions and operation remotely via a web browser. The project can also email can be sent automatically to report operating status. In addition to PJLink, your WL2500 is also compatible with SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) via its RJ45 LAN jack.
Nearly Maintenance Free
Your WL2500 offers long periods of maintenance-free use, without the need for lamp and filter replacement. Your WL2500 is equipped with Sanyo's proprietary hybrid filter, composed of multiple filter layers, and the lamp life has been improved compared to conventional models. The longer lamp lifespan and long life filter save you both time and money.
Blackboard Color Board Mode
In classrooms and other places where there is no screen available, you can project images onto a blackboard or color boards or red, blue, yellow or green walls.
Closed Captioning
Your WL2500 can display all four channels (CC1, CC2, CC3 and CC4) of closed captioning from program sources that provide CC. That's good not only for your hard of hearing audience members but for anyone learning English as a second language or when you have to present in a noisy environment.

    Sanyo PLC-WL2500 Reviews

    PLC-WL2500 Ultra Short-Throw Multimedia Projector is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Short Throw Projector This unit is ceiling mounted in a training room, and from approximately 3 feet from the wall projects a 110 inch image. Image is sharp and bright with lights full on in the room. We also run it in economy mode only, which is very quiet and extends bulb life. It is connected to our network and can be monitored. 4 stars only because of the lack of USB jack for remote control activation.
