Posted Fri Apr 30, 2010 at 08:30 AM PDT by Mike Attebery

The Z4000 boasts up to 216 billion color combinations and releases at the end of next month.

The PLV-Z4000 is the latest projector to come out of Sanyo, and it offers just about everything you'd expect from a current high definition projector.

To start with, it can handle video at a 1080p resolution, and at either 120 or 24 frames per second. It's a 3LCD projector, and thanks to its ability to double the input frame rate, Sanyo says it's able to virtually eliminate motion blur and artifacts.

It uses the TopazReal HD system, a technology exclusive to Sanyo that the company says guarantees excellent optical performance. It uses 14-Bit signal processing and a new, highly efficient HD lens. It's also got a color management system that's capable of producing up to 216 billion different color combinations.

"The high performance achieved by our TopazReal technology makes this projector an extraordinary value in today's home theater projector market," says Sanyo VP Sam Malik. "The PLV-Z4000's ability to display very high resolution artifact-free images with superb color accuracy, while being easy to install in any home theater environment, make it a great choice from the standpoint of both consumers and installers."

You'll be able to pick up the PLV-Z4000 at the end of May for an MSRP of $2,495.
