Sanyo brand to disappear in April 2012 01 Jan 2012

Panasonic plans to eliminate the Sanyo brand name by April 1st and will badge their range of Sanyo projectors with the Panasonic projector brand. Panasonic has already been absorbing some of the Sanyo technology into their own products throughout 2012, and divesting unwanted Sanyo operations (like washing machines).

The brother-in-law of Panasonic founder, Konosuke Matsushita, founded Sanyo in 1947. In 2008, Panasonic purchased a majority stake in Sanyo for just under $5 billion, and then purchased the rest of the company in 2010.  Sanyo means three oceans in Japanese, referring to the founder's ambition to sell their products worldwide, across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans.

Although the Sanyo brand name will disappear, Sanyo projector lamps will still be available for many years to come. So if you currently have a Sanyo projector then there will be a Sanyo lamp available for the life of the projector. However if you intend to upgrade your Sanyo projector you’ll have to choose a Panasonic or another brand such as Epson or Hitachi.
