Yamahas Next Generation Home Cinema LCD Video Projector – High-Quality Home Theater Solution at a Mid-Price Model

INDIANAPOLIS—-Yamaha Electronics Corporation is further enhancing its line of home theater solutions with the LPX-510, an advanced LCD projector that offers improved film-like picture quality due to enhanced brightness and contrast, easy quiet operation, flexible installation and true 16:9 HDTV compatibility. The LPX-510 was recently redesigned to match Yamaha’s stylish flagship DLP projectors.
At the heart of the LPX-510 are three 720×1280 high-definition LCD panels that can display a 16:9, high-contrast widescreen image on a large screen. Linear color balance technology corrects color irregularities at each of 640 points on the screen for multiple gradients ranging from dark scenes to bright scenes.

The LPX-510 is equipped with the latest 0.7″ 720p liquid crystal panel (with MLA) and a 10-bit gradation control that permits representation of 1.07 billion colors. To ensure that movies retain a film-like quality, the LPX-510 has a 3-2 pulldown progressive circuit, while Faroudja DCDi video processing reduces video artifacting and provides a smooth quality to the image. Other new video technologies include a 10-bit A/D converter for greater resolution during analog input, three-dimensional Y/C separation, three-dimensional noise reduction and motion adaptive i/p conversion.
An exceptional contrast ratio of 1200:1 gives users a deep brightness balance, while Yamaha’s “Natural Black” video technology gives the correct depth to “blackness” onscreen, making subtle degrees of shadow stand out. A new cinema filter enhances color reproduction while viewing in dark environments. The color reproduction range meets the stipulated range based on the HD monitor standard.
A 200 watt UHP lamp delivers up to a 3000 hour life expectancy and is capable of pumping out 1000 ANSI lumens. A six-level lamp power control that optimizes the brightness level of each specific viewing environment, saves power, reduces noise, and extends the lamp’s life. To cool the projector, the LPX-510 has dual Scirocco fans that extend lamp life and run at a whisper-quiet noise level of 27dB.

For setup convenience, the LPX-510 features a short-throw lens, so users can set it very close to the screen. At just over nine feet from the screen, the projector can display a 100-inch screen image with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Another new convenient feature is Smart Zoom, which projects 4:3 signals onto a full 16:9 display by stretching the edges further than the central part of the picture. Positioning of the projector is extremely flexible, thanks to a 1.5x motorized zoom and focus lens, as well as vertical and horizontal lens shift. The range of movement greatly exceeds that of conventional models, with a maximum of 100 percent vertically and of 50 percent horizontally. A motorized iris control function can be used to improve contrast and depth of field, and give the image a more three-dimensional feel. Digital keystone correction (15°) ensures a perfectly rectangular image, even if the projector is mounted on the floor or high on the ceiling.
Yamaha’s LPX-510 has a full complement of analog and digital video inputs, giving users great flexibility. Along with component, composite and S-video connections, a new HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) input provides both digital video and audio from the source component directly to the LPX-510. Also included is a PC standard RS-232 serial port so users can control the projector via home computers or automation systems. In addition, a handy 200mA +12V trigger can activate a motorized screen when the projector is powered on, providing a quick startup procedure even with complex home theater setups.

Yamaha’s LPX-510 projector is a high-end solution for home theater lovers who demand an advanced set of features designed to deliver the best picture possible. The LPX-510 is now shipping with an MSRP of $5,499.
The LPX-510 can be seen during the CEDIA 2004 show at Yamaha’s booth (#424), Indianapolis Convention Center, beginning September 10.
