Weight is an important parameter in portable equipment, even if it is a projector. SANYO launches the small PLC-XW65 projector weighing 1.6 kg.
The device displays an XGA image (1024 x 768 dots) and measures 265 x 74 x 189 mm. It offers brightness of2500 ANSI lumens as well as great freedom of installation. The vertical trapezoid correction function automatically corrects them in +/- 20 degrees.
The projector is characterized by a projection ratio of between 1.33 and 1.62: 1, which is the same as those obtained with a 1.2x wide-angle zoom lens. Thus, even in a small room, you can get a large diagonal image.
The owner of the PLC-XW65 does not have to be careful not to let him down for a moment. The PIN lock function allows you to limit the use of the projector to authorized persons only.
This miniature projector is also economical in operation. Long life of the bulb (3500 hours of operation in economy mode or 2000 hours of normal operation) allows for a long time not to worry about the need to replace it. The low power consumption is also a source of savings: in normal operation, the device only charges 225 watts, and the economical mode reduces power consumption to 185 W. When the projector is not in use and in standby mode, it consumes only 3.8 watts .
The manufacturer also includes a bag, infrared remote control (with batteries), instruction manual, power cord, 15-pin D-Sub cable and lens cover at the price of the projector.
HUD (Head-Up Display), a color projector that displays data on the windscreen of the car, is an optional Lexus NX200t. It is available in the Techno package with adaptive lights and lane maintenance assistant. We have reviewed what it offers and how it fits against the HUD competition in this car.
HUD displays that you can read here are divided into what data they show on the extra speed just before the front glass, and also on those that use the front of the windshield. This second option is better because the image is displayed a few meters in front of the car, so the driver needs less time to focus their attention on the projected image. In the case of the Lexus NX200t we are talking about the second way. It is worth pointing out that the projector displaying data on the windshield of this car is colored, which adds to the utility values. How it’s working? See the movie:
HUD always improves comfort and safety. Due to the fact that 99% of the time the data is displayed very close to the area that the driver is looking at (the road ahead of the car), the risk of not seeing something is noticeable because he was just looking at the speedometer. In the case of the Lexus NX200t, a color projector can also display data from satellite navigation as well as information from onboard active driver support systems, which further improves comfort and safety. It is also worth noting that the manufacturer has envisaged the possibility of personalizing the HUD. The driver can change his position, content, and brightness.
