A wider home theater experience

16:9 wide-screen aspect ratio LCD panels
PLV-80Each of the three LCD panels in the PLV-80 has 1,366 x 768 dots, giving a total of 3.15 million pixels to ensure high-resolution real XGA image quality on a wide screen. The PLV-80 brings you closer to a genuine movie theater experience in your own home.

Automatic adjustment matching the image, auto picture control
Automatic gamma adjustment The brightness of the image is judged, the most suitable gamma value is set automatically, and a picture without too bright white parts or squashed black is reproduced. Intelligent digital sharpness control The image signal components are analyzed and the most suitable sharpness is set automatically.

Progressive scan IC
A newly developed progressive scan IC improves image quality, and a SANYO original cross-color separation circuit helps achieve superior diagonal resolution. Also offering 2-3/ 2-2 pulldown compatibility (HDTV compatibility), the PLV-80 delivers high-quality image projection from film sources.

3000 ANSI Lumens for a big, bright picture
Whether it's for home theater use or professional event applications, the PLV-80 delivers the brightness you need for superior big-screen enjoyment. The powerful 300W NSH lamp and a built-in micro lens result in the screen brightness of 3,000 lumens. Professional users can stack two units together for a combined total of more than 6,000 lumens.
Digital gamma correction
This gamma correction control function achieves smoother gradation characteristics by adjusting the gradation according to the image being input.

Color management function for color adjustment
A color management function permitting adjustment of any color (hue, chroma, gamma value) has been included. For the color to be corrected, a narrow hue range can be specified, and as the correction is reflected in real time, true color reproduction with high accuracy and effective color correction or stressing matching the scene can be done.

High contrast to suit any picture
PLV-80 High ContrastSANYO's high-contrast optical system compensates for polarized scattering as the light passes through the LCD panels and increases black contrast to achieve an on-screen contrast ratio of 1,000 to 1 (black/white). Digital gamma correction control offers finer gradation adjustment, allowing the user to achieve a perfect match for the projected image.

Plug & Play Easy Setup

Super-Quiet Operation

Linear control of fan rotation greatly reduces audible operating noise. The fan control system is linked to a sensor that constantly monitors the internal temperature of the projector, and fan speed is adjusted accordingly to eliminate noisy bursts of fan activity and reduce the noise level to just 33 dB.

Up/Down Lens Shift
The motor driven lens shift makes it easy to center the picture on the screen without raising the projector body. It also simplifies setup if two projectors are stacked for simultaneous use.

Digital and optical zooms make setting up more flexible
In addition to up/down keystone correction (maximum 30 degrees), SANYO has added left/right keystone correction (maximum 20 degrees) to the PLV-80. This makes it possible to project correct-looking images even if the projector is not directly in front of the screen.

Flexible Setup

Dimmer function to optimize lamp brightness

These projectors can be connected to a computer network via the PJ-Net Organizer (POA-PN40, sold separately) for management and control capabilities. Projectors located in several different locations can be controlled from a single computer using your normal web browser - there is no need for any special software.
