Projector technology has certainly come a long way, and Sanyo’s most recent release, the ultra short-focus projector known as the LP-WL2500, comes with a newly developed filter and lamp that makes it possible to use this for extremely long periods of time without worrying about maintenance. According to Sanyo, lamp life has been boosted by 30% compared to its predecessor, hitting the 4,000 hour mark. As for the hybrid filter which lasts the longest, you will be pleased to know it outpaces the previous model’s lifespan by 20 times. Features include a 230W lamp that produces 2,500 lumens, WXGA resolution, a 500:1 contrast ratio, an HDMI interface, Ethernet and a 10W speaker. It will retail for $2,900 in Japan after conversion, with no word on whether it will see action elsewhere or not.
