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.
Sanyo says these TVs feature 3-LCD Processing:
Conventional rear-projection televisions rely on a single, sequentially 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 accurate color.
And they also feature a 150-Watt Lamp:
To increase picture brightness and contrast, SANYO incorporates its 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 viewing.
