Sanyo Shows off Prototype 100-inch 1080p Projector

By: Array

Something for the home entertainment buffs out there. Sanyo is showing off a super-short focused laser prototype projector that is capable of projecting a 100-inch 1080P picture from a mere 24-inches away. If you add on another 12 -inches you can gain an additional 5-inches of viewing area.

 

The new projector is so new it does not even have a name yet. Sanyo did let slip that this will have 7000 lumens. No price or release information was available at the time of writing.

Sanyo Shows off Prototype 100-inch 1080p Projector
Sanyo's had a knack for pumping out short-throw projectors, but its latest prototype unquestionably takes the cake. Debuting without so much as a model name, this here DLP beamer -- which, at 93- x 20- x 25-inches, easily doubles as a bench -- throws up a 100-inch 1080p image with just 24-inches of space between it and the wall. Better still, that can scale up to 150-inches by adding just another foot of breathing room -- and just to remind you, we're talking full 1,920 x 1,080 resolution here

ASUS out with world's thinnest 22-inch LCD monitor

By: Array

It would not be a normal day without ASUS launching a few new products and one of them today is the rather attractive looking LS221H widescreen LCD.

 

ASUS out with world's thinnest 22-inch widescreen LCD

It is a 22-inch monitor capable of a resolution of 1680x1050 WSXGA+ which ASUS is claiming is the world's thinnest with the bezel measuring just 45mm thick. It's no OLED monitor which when they start hitting retail will have a bezel thickness of around 10mm but this is nevertheless quite impressive. It also features diamond cut corners and glass edges fused with a glossy black piano finish and the bottom front of the monitor also gets a layer of genuine leather.

The LS221H gets ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) 4000:1 technology and a low two-millisecond response time. You not only get DVI input but also HDMI 1.2.

 

As far as pricing goes, you will be able to pick up one of these monitors in Australia now for the RRP of $599 AUD inc GST - that works out to be around $518 USD at today's exchange rate.

 

You can find more details over at the press release, which is here.

Foxconn has projector smaller than cigarette box

By: Array

COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2008 Did you ever think you would be able to put you projector in your pocket?

 


Foxconn is all set to make it happen with its new line of ultra small projectors. They won't compete against the three LCD 1080p projectors but for business men looking to do basic presentations while on the move, these things would be perfect.

 

There was a demo setup playing back the Cars DVD movie and while the quality wasn't super impressive in our now HD world, it should be just fine for Power Point presentations.

 

Just take a look for yourself - our Russian friend from Foxconn introduced us to the products and placed his packet of cigarettes next to it for some size comparison.

 


Rather impressive, wouldn't you agree?
