The projector can display full 720p from HD sources, pixel perfect 1280 x 800 (16:10 aspect ratio) WXGA resolution from the newest generation PCs, and also provides an expanded color palette for more realistic images, utilizing BrilliantColor technology with multi-color processing.
"Sharp?s new PG-F255W WXGA DLP BrilliantColor projector is packed with features and performance to meet the needs of any professional presentation in almost any business setting," said Dan Wynne, senior director of marketing, Professional Display Division, Sharp Information and Imaging Company of America.
The new PG-F255W WXGA projector features high brightness of 2500 ANSI Lumens and 2200:1 Contrast Ratio. The projector also uses DLP BrilliantColor technology that can enable up to a fifty percent increase in mid tones and expands the color palette beyond red/green/blue to include yellow, white, magenta and cyan for more realistic and lifelike color reproduction.
The PG-F255W employs ultra-quiet cooling fans to reduce distracting fan noise to an almost unnoticeable level. DLP projector owners also enjoy lower cost of ownership and longer projector lifespan thanks to the filter-free DLP sealed system that prevents dust, dirt and smoke from entering core parts of the optics.
The projector has advanced features for easy use in virtually any business or education application. The on-screen guide and "help" function ensures simple setup and operation. An advanced picture mode pre-sets the projector to recall preferred settings for multiple users automatically and a built-in closed caption decoder with black and white text enhances legibility. A wireless remote includes full wireless mouse control when a USB cable is connected between the projector and a PC or when used with the optional AN-MR2 Remote IR Receiver. The remote also includes a built-in spot light function and an on-screen pointer to help during presentations.
The projector weighs only 6.4 pounds and can be ceiling-mounted (for permanent installations), operated from a table-top or AV cart, or used in rear-projection mode. For portable use, it can be moved easily from classroom to lecture hall or boardroom to home office.
In addition to its standard analog RGB/component and audio/video input terminals, inputs are provided for a DVI-I analog/digital source with HDCP compliance. A built in audio system is provided, along with variable audio line-out (for use with powered loudspeakers or a larger external sound system), RGB loop-through output, RS-232C and USB for mouse control.
The PG-F255W also has a built-in network connection with an RJ-45 LAN Connector for remote control and access by a Web browser for diagnostics and automatic e-mail of product status.
The PG-F255W is backed by a two-year parts and labor limited warranty and it is available this month through Sharp authorized dealers and resellers at am ESRP of $999.
