offers a feature set that is unmatched – 2200 ANSI lumen brightness,
lightweight, and quick setup; no other projector packs so many features along
with exemplary image quality," said Jerry Ganguzza, senior marketing manager,
Sharp LCD Products Group. "No other projector, installed or portable, has such
a winning combination."
Notevision6 is equipped with Sharp's PresenterPAK™, a collection of features
that gives mobile presenters a versatile projector with an easy and quick setup,
simple image adjustment and enhanced presentation options.
and Quick Setup
easy operation for even the first-time user, Sharp's exclusive PresenterPAK
features a friendly graphical user interface (GUI) menu screen that is
icon-based, color coded and uses common terminology rather than technical
jargon. Computer connectors are color-coded blue, making setup a snap for users
who choose to use cables to connect to a PC. Users can completely bypass cables
by using Sharp's IrCOM to transfer images directly to the projector from a
laptop or a compatible IrTranP-equipped device.
number of image-adjustment features, both automatic and manual, allow a
presenter to tune the image to ensure the best-looking presentations. Sharp's
autoSYNC automatically adjusts computer images without having to access the
projector's menu system, and Advanced ImageACE Resizing automatically adjusts
different source resolutions to match the projector's native resolution.
One-touch gamma correction can adjust the color shifts that arise from using
different image sources during a presentation with the press of a button.
Digital keystone correction removes an effect that may cause projected images to
appear trapezoidal, and unlike optical correction, the technique squares the
edges of an image while maintaining brightness and image quality.
the PresenterPAK has built many presentation tools into the projector, a user
has a variety of options to enhance presentations; it also allows
sales/marketing executives to customize the projector to display their
company's logo during startup and allows users to manipulate images during
presentations with digital enlargement and freeze capabilities.
Notevision6 is available now through Sharp's authorized dealer network at a
list price of $12,995. The projector is backed by a three-year parts and limited
labor warranty, including Sharp's "ER" Service, a 24-hour turnaround
express repair program.

purchase, lease or rental through its national network of authorized dealers.
