Sharp Introduces High Brightness DLP Professional Projector

Sharp expands its professional projector line-up with the introduction of a 5200 ANSI Lumen DLP projector for the high-end installation market. The XG-PH70X is an installation and integration projector designed for facilities that need a powerful, permanently-installed display device. With superior brightness, a 1200:1 contrast ratio, six lens options and redundant reliability through a dual-lamp lighting system, the XGA native resolution XG-PH70X delivers uncompromising picture quality in large spaces, such as a conference room or lecture hall.

The XG-PH70X offers redundant reliability for uninterrupted presentations through Sharp's dual-lamp optical system. For applications that require reduced output, such as in shaded rooms, users can run a single lamp, or operate the unit in its "eco" low brightness mode (4300 ANSI Lumens), effectively extending the lamp life for a lower overall cost of ownership.

The projector has six lens options, providing users with a multitude of placement choices, including up to 116 feet from the screen or out of reach on a high ceiling. Five of the lenses are powered, so adjustments can be made remotely, and the sixth lens is a wide-angle fixed focus. Power "H & V" optical lens shift allows the user to adjust the lens horizontally and vertically, minimizing keystone distortion. The unit's standard lens is a high image quality, 1.2x powered zoom/focus for a maximum screen size of 500 inches. Additionally, the XG-PH70X can be rotated a full 180 degrees to fit challenging spaces and applications.

The XG-PH70X's built-in video-processing chip, the Sharp CV-IC II (Computer Video Integrated Composer) System, ensures enhanced image quality. The CV-IC II circuitry smoothes jagged edges, minimizes image noise and creates a perfectly rectangular image with keystone corrections, resulting in impressively sharp presentations.

With the latest in DDR DLP Technology from Texas Instruments, including a four-segment 3x speed color wheel and sealed optics, customers receive superior image quality with the XG-PH70X. When combined with Sharp's enhanced reliability, the XG-PH70X is an excellent choice for any professional application, including boardrooms, lecture halls, houses of worship, staging/rental as well as NOC (Network Operations Center) command and control.

The XG-PH70X has a built-in RJ-45 LAN connection and Web server that allows direct control from the desktop to the projector without special software. Sharp's Display Manager Software connects one or more LAN-enabled projectors to a network for remote control, asset management and diagnostics. The software helps minimize downtime and expedites maintenance by self-diagnosing system errors, instantly alerting the control PC or e-mailing an error message to a predetermined list. The unit also includes a wireless remote with full mouse control.
