Sanyo PDG-DHT100L DLP Projector


The 6500 lumens True HD projector features a Dual Color Wheel system and their exclusive Active Maintenance Filter with Dual Lamp Interval system for 24/7 operation and ‘picture-by-picture’ capability

SANYO, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of LCD and DLP projectors adds the PDG-DHT100L, a professional class 1080p native resolution single chip DLP projector, to their broad line-up of projectors. Key features include a dual lamp system that allows for increased light output and user changeable twin color wheel system that increases color reproduction and light output efficiency and SANYO’s Active Maintenance Filter for extended maintenance cycles. The projector is also compatible with SANYO’s exclusive Uncompressed HD Data Wireless Transmission System, which is available as an option.

The PDG-DHT100L is the brightest of its class with an incredible 6,500 lumens, and is compatible with a Full HD (1920 X 1080) signal. Contributing to the increased light output efficiency, the PDG-DHT100L is outfitted with two 330-watt HP bulbs and a twin color wheel system. The high brightness projector answers a growing need for projectors to perform in brighter environments, particularly for theaters, auditoriums, or large lecture halls.

“The two-lamp PDG-DHT100L is perfect for brightly lit rooms wanting the best in graphics, video or both together,” says Mark Holt, the Vice President and General Manager for SANYO’s Presentation Technologies Division. “Moreover, it’s practically maintenance free with our latest optical engine, 24/7 lamp interval function and exclusive AMF system that controls dust automatically. Plus the picture-by-picture and picture-in-picture capability makes this the perfect projector for any size venue.”

The PDG-DHT100L has a twin color wheel system that offers increased color reproduction and light output efficiency, and comes with two different user-changeable color wheels that are optimized for either high brightness or rich color reproduction. The projector ships with the color wheel that is optimized for higher brightness. A second color wheel that is optimized for rich color reproduction is included in the package. Either of these color wheels can be easily changed for intended applications by users. Also, a built-in Color Matching function corrects variations in color reproduction when using more than one projector for edge blending applications.

The projector is also equipped with a new, dust-resistant sealed optical engine and the Industry’s longest lasting*** 25,000 hour-use Active Maintenance Filter. The sealed optical engine prevents dust build-up, while maintaining optimal brightness and contrast. These problems have traditionally been difficult to overcome, causing reductions in projection quality. The AMF system automatically detects airflow and advances clean filter material as needed. The integration of the new optical engine and the AMF system prevents dust from entering the lamp area and allows enough airflow to keep the projector cool at all times. The increased dust resistance and longer lasting filters promote extended durability and reliability.

SANYO’s 24/7 Lamp Interval Function
The lamp interval function can be used to automatically switch the lamp that is turned on to an alternate lamp after a certain period of time in order to reduce the initial lamp deterioration. A user can select from [Off/Auto/200h/500h/1000h/2000h] or a 24-hour interval time, and rotate each lamp for extended 24/7 usage.

The PDG-DHT100L offers an edge blending function that allows for boundary-less images with multi-image display possibilities. It is also capable of projecting two images simultaneously, either using its built-in picture-in-picture mode or picture-by-picture mode.

The projector is compatible with SANYO’s Uncompressed HD Data Wireless Transmission System, which can project high definition (1080i or 720p) images over long distances without wires. This optional upgrade allows pure uncompressed data transmissions without sync delays between video and sound. The wireless system allows video transmissions from a distance as much as 30 meters** approx. 100 feet away from the input source. This is particularly useful for large event halls and other large rooms or theaters, as it eliminates the need to feed cables and run wires from sources to projectors.

The advanced lens function with power vertical/horizontal lens shift plus a 360-degree vertical tilt, allows the projector to be positioned almost anywhere, including the ceiling or the floor.
