SANYO Projectors Used in Theatrical Screening of Canadian Film

CONCORD, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 19, 2007) - SANYO Canada has provided two digital projectors for the theatrical debut of the Canadian movie Crossing, starting on April 20 at the Carlton in Toronto and the Fifth Avenue in Vancouver.

SANYO manufactures 2K digital projectors specifically designed for cinematic use such as the PLV-HD2000N and PLV-HD150. The director of Crossing, Roger Larry, chose the SANYO PLC-XF46N for the theatrical debut. It features three large 1.8 inch, 1024 by 768 pixel LCDs to produce up to 12,000 lumens, with four UHP lamps producing 300 watts each. The XF46 can automatically switch to a long-life, low power, "failsafe" mode whenever a single lamp defect is detected. The use of low power, low cost UHP lamps results in overall running costs about half that of other systems in the same high brightness class. With lens, MSRP is about $36,000.

"Digital projection is the future for cinema and the Crossing is a great venue to show off our technology," says Cathy Tucker, Director, Sales and Marketing, Presentation Technologies and Digital Signage, Sanyo Canada.

Crossing tells the story of a gangster who discovers the thrills and perils of cross-dressing. It stars Sebastian Spence, Crystal Buble, Bif Naked, Fred Ewanuick and Alan C. Peterson. It has already been sold to more than 21 countries worldwide and won Silver at top US fest Cinequest, for best first feature film. More information can be found at
