The 3-D bandwagon isn’t just for monitors anymore. Now projectors are joining the 3-D frenzy with Sharp’s new suite of 3-D DLP BrilliantColor professional projectors.
The six new models range from 2,500 to 4,500 lumens, and use Texas Instruments’ BrilliantColor multicolor processing along with TI’s DLP Link technology, company officials said.
When the 3-D projectors are used with 3-D field sequential content and 3-D shutter glasses that support the DLP Link Systems, the effect is “breathtaking” 3-D imagery, Sharp representatives said.
The projectors work with both 60 Hz and 120 Hz XGA (1024-by-768) and SVGA (800-by-600) sources. They can also be used for traditional 2-D content, the company said.
Prices range from $2,795 for the PG-D45X3D with 4,500 lumens, to $995 for the PG-D2500X with 2,500 lumens.
The PG-D45X3D includes and HDCP-compliant DVI-I terminal for use with both analog and digital RGB sources; the PG-D40W3D offers HDMI connectivity. All six models provide analog RGB and component inputs, S-video and composite video, as well as an RS-232C port and a USB input for mouse control.
