Sanyo's 'self-cleaning' projector

New technology controls built-in dust filtration mechanism with automated air filter replacement.


You read that right: Sanyo has announced two new "self-cleaning" portable multimedia projectors. The 3,100-lumens LP-XC55 and 2,600-lumens LP-XC50 incorporate the Japanese company's new Active Maintenance Filter to keep them free of everyday dirt and grime.

This minimizes maintenance hassles by controlling the projectors' built-in dust filtration mechanism with automated air filter replacement. It also preempts the notorious dust blob problem which commonly plagues LCD projectors.

Clean projectors apparently don't come cheap, however. The LP-XC55 and LP-XC50 will be launched in Japan from July for $3,522 and $3,016. It's unclear whether they'll be offered in other markets.
