SHARP SHIPS NEW XG-MB50XA RELIABLE, COST-EFFECTIVE PROFESSIONAL DLP PROJECTOR FOR EDUCATION AND CORPORATE CUSTOMERS
"When business people and educators show video, slides or other presentations, they want to use a reasonably-priced projector that displays vibrant images," said Bruce Pollack, associate director of marketing, Sharp Information Systems Group. "With 2000 ANSI lumens and 2000:1 contrast ratio, the XG-MB50X meets the demand for exceptional performance, ease of use, versatility and low total cost of ownership."
High Image Quality
The new XG-MB50X features high brightness (2000 ANSI Lumens) to project a crystal-clear picture in any work environment, regardless of lighting conditions. A native 1024 x 768 XGA resolution and a unique Condenser lens optical system deliver rich black tones and sharp on-screen images. The XG-MB50X creates more natural-looking skin tones via a timing color wheel that increases power to the lamp as it passes through the red segment of the color wheel.
Low Total Cost of Ownership
The XG-MB50X was created for budget-minded professionals. The unit's Low Power "Eco" Mode conserves lamp life, making it ideal for rooms with minimal lighting or without windows. Low Power Mode extends the lamp life from 2,000 hours to 3,000 hours while significantly reducing fan noise and power consumption for quiet, economical projector operation. Additionally, the XG-MB50X has a three-year parts and labor limited warranty including three years of Sharp's industry-leading "Express Repair" 24-hour turnaround support.
Advanced Feature Set
The slim, steel-gray XG-MB50X has a variety of advanced features that make the projector easy to use in multiple business applications. The on-screen guide and "Help" function ensures simple setup and operation. An advanced picture mode recalls each setting to configure the projector automatically so that settings can be pre-set for multiple users. A wireless remote with built-in forward/back PC control allows the user access to the projector from anywhere in the room.
The XG-MB50X is HDTV compatible and has multiple inputs, including RGB, composite RCA, S-Video and RS-232C. The model can also be connected to a network through its RS-232C input and the necessary control adapter ships with the product.
Theft prevention has also been addressed by the XG-MB50X, with "key code activation" to prevent unauthorized operation and the availability of an ultra-heavy-duty security cable kit for use with Sharp's ceiling mounting systems.
The XG-MB50X is available this month through Sharp's authorized dealer network for a Manufacturer's Suggested List Price of $1,599.
