Sanyo announces innovative 3D-ready projector

Sanyo has announced its PDG-DWL2500J (couldn’t they think of a better name?) - the world’s shortest focus 3D-ready projector. You can place it as close as just 1 inch away from the screen, wall or even balckboard and it will still produce an 80-inch image. The unit is also ready for the 3D revolution (don’t hold your breath on that one though).

The unit has a resolution of 1280 x 800 wide XGA and produces 2,500 lumens from its 275W light source. It has a contrast ratio of 2000:1 and supports up to 1.07 billion colours. It uses a newly developed DLP format compact optical engine and as a result is quite compact in size, measuring just 12.63 x 6.69 x 15.5 inches in size.

As for its 3D feature, it relies on the Frame Sequential Display Format, using active shutter 3D glasses worn by the viewer to benefit from the 3d image effect. Other features include a LAN port, 10W mono speaker, a HDMI terminal and RCA and S-Video inputs.

It will be available later this summer. Price TBA

More details on new Sony NEX-3 & NEX-5 ultra compact digital cameras

The amazing new NEX-5 and NEX-3 ultra-compact digital cameras from Sony make DSLR-quality images accessible to everyone. Step up to DSLR picture quality, quick shooting responses and the convenience of interchangeable lenses, plus smart features like AVCHD video and Sweep Panorama. Teaming serious creative possibilities with stylish looks, the ultra-compact new NEX-5 and NEX-3 digital cameras from Sony are beautifully easy to use.

The NEX-5

The NEX-3


Just touch a button. The NEX-5 compact camera shoots sparkling Full HD (1920 x 1080i) video as high-quality AVCHD files to enjoy on your HD television. The NEX-3 shoots compact MPEG4 HD video clips - perfect for PC storage and web sharing.

Sweep Panorama
Unique to Sony, Sweep Panorama automatically stitches together a high-speed burst of frames when you sweep the camera from side to side or up and down. You’ll be rewarded with stunning high-resolution panoramas, with a huge field of view.

Perfect portraits
Turn the intuitive control dial and see depth of focus changes previewed live on the big, bright 7.5cm (3”) XtraFine TruBlack LCD. You’ll enjoy effortless control over creating beautiful, pro-style portraits… just like a professional photographer.

Pro picture quality
The new NEX-5 and NEX-3 digital cameras feature a DSLR-sized 14.2 effective megapixels Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. Far bigger than the sensor in simple point-and-shoot compact cameras, it’s the key to detail-packed DSLR-quality images with extremely low picture noise and beautiful defocus effects
