SHARP ADDS 3500 ANSI LUMENS PROJECTOR TO ITS HIGH BRIGHTNESS CONFERENCE/CLASSROOM 3-LCD PROJECTOR SERIES
"With the addition of this 3,500 ANSI Lumen 3-LCD projector, we now provide a full array of brightness options for use in practically any customer application, from conference rooms and lecture halls to special events and other permanent installations," said Bruce Pollack, associate director of marketing, Professional Display Division, Sharp Commercial Markets Sales and Solutions Group.
Like the other high brightness models in this series (XG-C430X and XG-C330X), the new XG-C335X provides simple-to-use features that education and business professionals will appreciate, such as ImageACE Resizing and autoSYNC, which ensure that projected images are uniform, regardless of signal source. In addition to the included standard zoom lens, the new projector offers four optional lenses (short throw, telephoto zoom 1.29x, telephoto zoom 1.52x and telephoto zoom 1.41x), making this model adaptable to even the most demanding application. With Sharp's rapid release lens mechanism, lens changes are quick and effortless.
The projector also offers features for portability and control. This lightweight unit has a built-in carrying handle for portable use. A wireless remote with features such as built-in mouse control, page up/down and image freeze, allows the user to advance slides in a presentation from virtually anywhere in the room.
While easy to operate, the XG-C335X also has features to discourage theft. The projector comes equipped with a sturdy "Notevision Lockdown" bolt to mount the projector to a ceiling through its optical block, as well as "key code activation" to prevent unauthorized operation. Sharp also offers an optional ceiling mount cable lock system, along with Kensington Lock compatibility.
Superior Image Quality and Connectivity
Providing an excellent picture for detailed presentations, the XG-C335X utilizes three polysilicon LCDs for superior, uniform high-quality images and higher color saturation. A native XGA resolution (1024 x 768) further enhances the images for a crisp, flawless picture.
For use in multiple applications, the model features extensive connectivity, including a built-in LAN terminal, DVI-D input with HDCP compatibility for further PC/Video connectivity, two RGB or component inputs, S-video, composite video and stereo audio.
Remote Access and Control Software
The XG-C335X 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 minimizes downtime and expedites maintenance by self-diagnosing system errors, instantly alerting the control PC or emailing an error message to a predetermined list. The projector also has an RS-232C port for remote control.
Low Cost of Ownership and Extended Warranty
Sharp delivers a low cost of ownership over the projector's lifespan. The new XG-C335X has a Low Power Mode that extends lamp life up to 3,000 hours and minimizes operational costs and lamp changes. The Low Power Mode also significantly reduces power consumption and fan noise. Additionally, this model is among the quietest in the industry, with a low fan noise of only 31 dB (in Low Power mode).
The XG-C335X is backed by a two-year parts and labor limited warranty including two years of Sharp's industry-leading 24-hour turnaround "ER" Express Repair support. The warranty on the user-replaceable projection lamp is 90 days.
The XG-C335X will be available in April at a Manufacturer's Suggested List Price of $3,995.
