Sanyo presented two new widescreen LCD HDTVs today, one is a 55-incher and the other one 65-inch. SANYO's slender new PLV-55WHD1 55-inch and PLV-65WHD1 65-inch widescreen high-definition TVs incorporate advanced technologies to give stunning life to
DVDs, home videos and TV programs. In addition to 3-LCD processing, both new
rear-projection HDTVs offer precise 720p high-definition video processing for
crisp, clear pictures and 10-bit video processing to accurately reproduce over
one billion colors. Both SANYO HDTVs are engineered to deliver a smoother,
more colorful and more reliable high-definition home theater experience.
Conventional rear-projection TVs can be notoriously slow in bringing a
picture to the screen once power has been activated. SANYO's PLV-55WHD1 and
PLV-65WHD1 are up and running in just 15-seconds. There's also a convenient
stand-by feature that allows instant-on viewing up to four minutes after
turning off the power.
Both the SANYO PLV-55WHD1 and SANYO PLV-65WHD1 HDTVs will be available in Q3 2006.

processed beam of light to render color. SANYO's two new HDTVs use three
separate LCD panels to process the red, green and blue light needed to produce
the on-screen image. The instantly noticeable result is brighter, more
And they also feature a 150-Watt Lamp:

proprietary 150-Watt lamp technology into both the PLV-55WHD1 and PLV-65WHD1
televisions. The new 150-watt lamp is the world's first to feature a sealed
metal reflector (SMR) design, with up to 10,000 hours of maintenance-free
