LP-XP200L from Sanyo is World's First Four-LCD Optical Engine Projector

With its four LCDs, the LP-XP200L is bigger, brighter and more colorful, claims maker Sanyo. With brightness of 7,000 lumens, a Colour Control Device to perk up colours, as well as a built-in Active Maintenance Filter system, the projector will be on sale in Japan from September 24, for a mahoosive US$17,500, but curious buggers can see it at InfoComm 2008 in Las Vegas, which is scheduled for June 18 to 20.

One piece of "meh"ness about the LP-XP200L, though: you'll have to buy the projection lens separately. [Sanyo]
