"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

New Twin Iris Yields 10000:1 Contrast Ratio
The PLV-Z5 boasts the industry's first twin-iris system. Integrating a lens aperture and lamp aperture, this new system delivers true-to-life images with outstanding gradation in a variety of viewing environments. Also, SANYO's newly developed TopazReal Technology catalyzes a greater synergy between the brightness level of various lamps and a newly designed LCD panel, achieving a contrast level as high as 10000:1. The PLV-Z5 is guaranteed to deliver crisp, bright, and high-contrast images, even in well-lit environments.

Extensive Input Connections 2 x HDMI
A full complement of input terminals, which includes a digital HDMI interface and two sets of component video inputs, together with composite video and S-video connections, provide extensive flexibility. The user can even connect their PC to the projector via the D-sub 15 input.

12-bit Digital Image Processing
Using the 12-Bit Digital Processing IC, the PLV-Z5 achieves higher image quality with video decoder, scalar and gamma curve generator. The result is the reproduction of deeper, richer images. And thanks to greatly improved calculating precision, the PLV-Z5 renders even tiny nuances in expressive details.

Innovative 3D Color Management
You can adjust and save the hue, gamma curve, and level of any color. Fine-tuning the image settings enables compensation for specific conditions in every viewing environment.

Savvy Installation with 2X Zoom & Lens Shift
With its 2X optical zoom, the PLV-Z5 can project images onto a 100-inch screen from a mere distance of 9.8ft to 20ft. A pair of side panel controls adjust the lens vertically and horizontally to project a geometrically accurate and undistorted picture.

Near-Silent Fan Design – Only 22dBA
The redesigned internal cooling structure minimizes fan noise, achieving super quiet performance.

Motor-Operated Sliding Shutter
The shutter can be opened or closed automatically by remote control, protecting the lens from dust.

Advanced Mode
The Advanced Mode provides a range of adjustments to take care of your every video whim. Adjustments include RGB gain, RGB gamma, RGB offset adjustment, lens iris adjustment, outline compensation, black level expansion, and contrast enhancement.
