The Sanyo XU-73 is reliable and easy to use entry level projector suitable for low light conditions or environments where the lighting can be dimmed.
It can be used for power point / business presentations, home movie nights, birthday parties and at other small events / venues.
If you have limited control of the lighting or if the venue will be exposed to incoming sunlight, the brighter / more powerful Professional Projector or Advanced Projector will be a better choice.

Ultra Compact Fully Portable XGA Design
Not much larger than a laptop PC, the PLC-XU73 weighs less than 5.5 pounds and delivers true XGA picture quality in a versatile, go-anywhere system. Also may be ceiling or inverse mounted for enhanced versatility.
F1.65-1.81 Zoom Lens 1/2x to 16x Digital Zoom
Comes with its own 1:1.2 zoom lens, which can throw a crisp, bright 100” diagonal image from a distance of only 11.8’. 1/2X to 16X Digital Zoom helps highlight important program segments.
New Progressive IC w/3-2 & 2-2 Pulldown
SANYO’s proprietary progressive integrated circuit significantly improves the appearance of moving images. This IC incorporates 3-2 & 2-2 pulldown technology, which can effectively double the resolution of images from DVD playback.
Dual D-Sub15 Inputs
The PLC-XU73 offers excellent flexibility via a pair of D-Sub 15 input terminals. Using an optional adapter cable, it can even accept component video signals. One of the D-Sub 15 terminals can even be switched between input and monitor output for greater programming flexibility.
For more effective presentations in rooms with dark-surfaced walls (i.e.: green boards), the PLC-XU73 projector features BLACK BOARD MODE, which adjusts white balance and gamma correction automatically to project an intelligible image without a screen.
User Specified Start up Screen
To create a smoother, more professional presentation, logo and image files may be captured for display during the projector’s countdown sequence at start-up.
