SANYO’s PLV-Z2000 1080p home theater projector is powered by Altera Corporation (NASDAQ:ALTR) Cyclone® II FPGA and Nios® II embedded processor. The combination of Altera’s combined FPGA and embedded processor solution produced an impressive contrast ratio of 15,000:1. In its component selection process, SANYO concluded the Nios II embedded processor delivered the performance that met their image enhancement requirements. Altera’s solution enables SANYO’s home theater projector to deliver rich, deep, and accurate color resolution, great contrast, and a smooth film-like picture, as well as seven pre-set calibrations for various types of dark room and ambient light viewing. With Altera’s solution, SANYO was able to achieve higher integration and deliver many sophisticated capabilities in their PLV-Z2000 projector.
