SYDNEY, NSW: Sharp Corporation of Australia today announced the release of  the DLP BrilliantColor PG-D4010X. This model has been specifically developed for corporate and education markets.

Sharp claims a brightness of 4200 ANSI Lumens on this model, and a contrast ratio of 2500:1 for a clear picture in nearly any lighting condition.

“The projector features the DLP sealed system, which prevents dust, dirt and smoke from entering core parts of the optics,” said a Sharp spokesperson. “Its filter-free design results in less maintenance, lower ownership cost and longer projector use. When the full projector brightness is not required, use of a low power ‘Eco’ Mode is recommended, which extends the projector lamp life and reduces fan noise for quieter and even more economical operation.”

Sharp further claims that inbuilt high power output stereo speakers are sufficient for use without the need for a peripheral audio system in some situations, further contributing to total installation cost savings.

The PG-D4010X provides XGA native resolution (1024×768), but in Intelligent Compression System it is compatible with the signal resolution up to UXGA enabling projection from a wide variety of input sources. It offers HDTV compatibility for use with current and future video technologies as well as extensive connectivity. The PG-D4010X includes a DVI-I analogue/digital source, RGB and component inputs, S-video, composite video and stereo audio, an RS-232C port and a USB input for mouse control. There is also a RJ-45 LAN connection for remote control and access by a Web browser for diagnostics and automatic e-mail of product status.

“The PG-D4010X is well suited for permanent installations as well as offering additional features designed for safe mobility, including lens cover protecting optics and the inbuilt carry handle,” said the spokesperson.

Other useful features include image shift function, theft deterrent system lock, key lock preventing unauthorised use and presentation-assist functions by remote control (page up/down, pointer, spotlight and mouse control).”

The Sharp PG-D4010X projector is available now from leading AV specialists and retailers for RRP $3,299.
