Sanyo releases $50,000 projector with 12,000 lumens brightness


Sanyo has rolled out a number of projectors in the past months, but brightness-wise, their new LP-XF1000 [press release in English] beats them all. The dual lamp projector boasts not less than 12,000 lumens, made possible by two 330W lamps. Needless to say, this is the industry’s highest brightness (in an AC 100V device).


The projector features a contrast ration of 4,000:1 and produces images with 1024×768 resolution. It’s equipped with Sanyo’s proprietary QuaDrive technology for better color quality in images.


The LP-XF1000 goes on sale on December 18 in Japan and costs $45,000. Sanyo plans to produce 150 units monthly.
