Sharp Introduces XV-Z2000 DLP Home Theater Projector

by November 23, 2004

Utilizing the DLP™ HD2+ chip from Texas Instruments and with a resolution of 1280 x 720, the XV-Z2000 boasts a 2500:1 contrast ratio and a brightness rating of 1200 ANSI lumens, delivering one of the best pictures available in consumer home theater today.

Combining this optical technology with a powerful 275W lamp, the XV-Z2000 yields a brightness that is approximately 70% brighter than our previous model, and realizes superb image quality with rich, vivid and life-like color tones.

Moreover, even when the XV-Z2000 is mounted on the ceiling, the motorized zoom lens makes it possible to adjust the screen size and focus using the remote control unit.
