Sharp NEC Display Solutions is launching the new PE456USL laser projector for $2,579. At that price, it is the least expensive short-throw laser projector Sharp NEC currently offers. It's designed for installations where space is at a premium or a short throw distance is required—such as golf simulators, museums, classrooms, and offices.
The projector has a laser phosphor light source that is rated at 4,500 ANSI lumens with a light source life of up to 20,000 hours in normal mode (or 30,000 hours in Eco). It uses three 0.64-inch LCD chips and has a 19:10 native resolution of 1920x1200 (WUXGA). It can accept signals up to 4K/30Hz resolution.
A fixed lens offers a 0.44:1 throw ratio and can display an image up to 130-inch diagonal from just over four feet. (For a look at the full throw range, check ProjectorCentral's Sharp NEC PE456USL Throw Distance Calculator.) The projector has horizontal and vertical keystone correction, but only manual focus adjustment—no lens shift capabilities for this model.
