HOME CINEMA / PROJECTORS & SCREENS

Sharp Zooms In With 3D Projector

By Marie Jones | Monday | 28/03/2011

As revealed by SmartHouse last month, Sharp's new XV-Z17000, the company's first 3D high definition theatre projector designed specifically for entertainment in the home, is making its way onto Australian retail shelves.

Designed to bring the cinematic experience home, the XV-Z17000 can project a picture with a screen size ranging from 40 inches to a massive 500 inches.

The 3D visual experience is obtained via IR Link, combined with a full HD resolution (1920 x 1980 pixels) and high contrast ration of 40,000:1. Image brightness is also said to be exceptional at up to 1600 lumens.

Denis Kerr, Deputy Managing Director at Sharp, said, "3D requires a big screen to give viewers the full effect.

"Many homes are now being built with the option of a media room and we're seeing a trend in families naturally opting for premium projectors to fit these spaces and give them the ultimate cinema-like viewing experience at home," said Kerr.

The projector also comes with two pairs of 3D active shutter glasses so users can enjoy 3D movies, sporting events and more with families and friends.

With extensive connectivity, this model comes with two HDMI terminals, as well as inputs to PCs, HD set top boxes, Blu-ray/DVD players and game consoles.

To maintain superior images without distortion, the projector includes vertical and horizontal Keystone Correction and an Image Shift Function.

The projector also operates at a low noise level. With low fan noise of just 23dB in Eco + Quiet mode distractions while watching movies, sporting events and other programmes is made all the more enjoyable.

The projector can be used in a permanent installation, or as a portable model. It includes One Touch Play and System Standby functions on remote control, as well as capability for operation via universal control systems via an RS-232C port, and it also includes features designed for safe mobility, such as a sliding lens cover, a Kensington security standard connector and security bar for antitheft and key lock function.

Energy saving features have not been forgotten with the XV-Z17000 including low standby power consumption and expanded lamp life when operated in eco mode.

Lower maintenance costs are achieved with the projector's sealed DLP chip and filter-free design.

The Sharp XV-Z17000 is available now from specialist AV retailers at an RRP of $5,499.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
