    Can't imagine why on earth a Sanyo PLV-HD10 is worth £45k. :eek:

    Okay, so it's full HD size, but dammit LCD panels aren't THAT expensive .. an LCD projector with 1000:1 contrast, 5500 lumen output .. makes my Z2 look very good value. :smoke:

    We have 2 of these in our collection.
    (Conference, event production)

    They are expensive because amongst other things, they are bright!! (4 lamps no less!)

    We have rear-projected on screens over 20ft wide, and achieved good results with minimal blackout in the room.

    In the past we have also stacked the two Sanyo's on top of each other for 11,000 lumens!

    Very impressive projectors, but don't forget an extra £2000 for a short throw lens!

    :cool:

    :D.

    Must admit, while I do like a 'bright' image, 5500 lumens does seem a little OTT .. what amuses me most though is that Ivojo list it as a "Home Cinema" projector. :eek:

    It would make screen choice easier though, matte black :D

    Come to think of it, it's an ideal solution. Who needs variable masking when projecting onto an absorbant matte black screen :eek:

    Does velvet melt?

    The reason for the price is not just the brightness - Sanyo do a 10,000 lumen projector for considerably less.

    The price is due mainly to the extremely high resolution - possibly (but dont quote me) the highest resolution currently available in any wide format LCD projector (shared with the Lasergraphics LG2001)

    £45k? That's nowt.

    How about a JVC Pro QX-1 for £140k?
    7,000 lumens
    2,048 x 1536 (QXGA -Quad-XGA)

    Hopefully coming to a digital cinema near you soon... (Courtesy of the government)

    Give me a shout if you want one... :D

    Naw, 2nd hand Z2 has got to be worth at least £600. That only leaves £44,400 plus £2000 for the short throw lens and £???? for a spare bulb or four.......almost entry level compared to that JVC QX1 :)
