Thanks Chris -- hope you learn something reasonably definitive.
Yesterday, I sent this email to the only Sanyo address I was able to find.

Subject: Please, I need a little info on PLV-Z2000 projector
I've been searching for a particular piece of information on the new Sanyo PLV-Z2000 3LCD projector that has been announced at AFI (Germany) and CEDIA (Colorado, U.S.)
I need to find out if it is able to accept a 1080p24 input and display it as a multiple of 24 frames-per-second. I don't mean convert an input of 24fps to 60fps and then display it as 1080p60, but rather accept the 24fps input as is and then display it at one or more of 48Hz, 72Hz, or 96Hz.
If I need to be directing this question to some other person/department/email-address, then please provide me with the appropriate contact information so that I can do so. I very much need this information. Thanks very much for your kind assistance.
Again, thanks -- Trevor Storey (302-737-2606)
Here is the response I received (my message was apparently forwarded to technical support):
I am sorry but we do not have this information on the unit yet. We will not have much information till the release of the unit, which should be coming in the next couple of months.

So, they may simply not have mentioned it, or it may not be there. Looks like we may have to wait for a comprehensive review of an advance unit to discover the truth! The comments by the Epson rep at AFI are not at all encouraging, though the vertical spec could potentially support 72 and 96Hz.
I'll be looking forward to whatever you manage to find out Chris -- Thanks
