Sanyo's short-throw PDG-DWL2500J projector is 3D ready and very, very expensive

PDG-DWL2500J.jpgSanyo are to add a brand new model to their range of short-throw, short-focus projectors, the PDG-DWL2500J. Not content with being able to produce images as large as 110 inches across, Sanyo’s latest light box can produce 3D images too.

That short-throw technology is pretty impressive on its own merit too, producing 3D visuals from a distance a little as 2.4 centimetres.

In terms of connectivity, the projector features a HDMI port and Ethernet socket alongside a 10watt speaker, while the bulb throws out 16:10 aspect ratio images with 2,500 lumens of brightness. The resolution is a bit of a let down though, only at WXGA natively.

It’ll cost a pretty penny when it launches next month in Japan for 450,000 Yen (£3,295 circa), but home cinema enthusiasts are probably looking at a glimpse of the future here.
