Sharp Creates the All-in-One LCD Projector SolutionNotevision6 - Designed For Both Portable And "Fixed" Installation Use
ORLANDO, Fla., June 10, 1999 - Sharp Electronics Corp., the world leader in LCD technology, unveiled the Notevision6 (XG-NV6XU), designed to perform in both 'stationary' conference room applications, as well as for portable use. The Notevision6, which delivers an astounding 2200 ANSI lumens, includes exceptionally high image quality, optional lenses and the comprehensive "PresenterPAK" feature set - all the necessary tools to meet any presentation need.
The Notevision6, with a native XGA (1024x768) resolution, offers exceptional compatibility with a wide range of data and video signals. The unit is compatible with NTSC, PAL, SECAM, and DTV/HDTV video signals and, through Sharp's Advanced ImageACE resizing, can automatically adjust to handle images up to UXGA resolutions and various Macintosh and electronic workstation data signals. Sharp also has available optional telephoto and wide-angle zoom lenses for the Notevision6 that give users increased installation flexibility.
"Notevision6 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."
The 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.
Easy and Quick Setup Offering 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.
Simple Image Adjustment
A 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.
Because 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.
The Notevision6 will be available in July through Sharp's authorized dealer network. 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.
