Dual-lamp Sanyo LP-XTC50 projector announced

The latest must-have spec in high-end projectors are dual lamps. They offer better brightness control, longer lamp life, but are somewhat hard to find. The latest from Sanyo does, however, sport the dual-lamp goodness and features the standard set of large venue projector features: 5,000 ANSI lumens, 1,100 contrast ratio, 1024 x 768 resolution, and because of the dual lamps, up to 6,000 hours of lamp life. The LP-XTC50 is going to bow at CES ’09 with availability starting January 9, 2009 for 1,050,000 yen ($10,731 USD).
