Short Throw Projector: 80-Inch Pic From 3-Inches Away

 |  |  |  |  |  |  June 13, 2007

Sanyo’s breakthrough short throw projector design may well revolutionize the front projector market. By radically altering traditional projection optics, they’ve been able to design a projector capable of filling a wall from as little as 3-inches away.

The LX-XL50 can be hung on a wall to project images directly below or above the location of the projector. The unique design prevents shadows from appearing on the picture.

While Sanyo’s initial target market for the LX-XL50 is classrooms and meeting rooms, I don’t think it will be long before we see similar projector designs for home theater installations. Sanyo initially plans to release the projectors in Japan in late 2007, with a worldwide release shortly thereafter.
