Sharp Corporation of Australia has announced the release of the new PGF255W DLP projector featuring widescreen image reproduction, BrillantColour technology and the clarity of 2,500 lumens brightness for superb large screen viewing.

Delivering excellent presentation performance for both business and education applications, the Sharp PGF255W projector features a wide screen compatible WXGA (1280 x 800) panel which boasts a 1.3 times larger image than standard XGA. It is also compatible with digital high definition 1080p giving it the added flexibility to be used as a theatre projector.

The projector’s BrilliantColour technology delivers superb picture brilliance and vastly superior colour nuances. This extraordinary colour brilliance is achieved through a colour processing algorithm which provides greater depth and vibrancy to intermediate colours such as video and natural landscapes. Adding to the excellent picture quality is a 2200:1 high contrast ratio to deliver crisper detail and sharper blacks.

Offering the level of quietness required for use in business meetings and education situations, the DLP high speed six-segment colour wheel features non-contact fluid dynamic bearings as well as a front exhaust system, significantly reducing sound output to a low 29dB in ‘Eco +Quiet’ mode.

Connection to other equipment is made easy thanks to multiple input terminals including DVI-I for digital and analogue input, D-sub terminals (in/out) as well as compatibility with AV equipment, computers and video game consoles.

The PGF255W is equipped with Sharp Unique Network System providing remote access and management of the projector via a LAN connection. It enables a wide range of control and diagnosis functions, such as power on, input select and volume adjustment by a computer located in another room, or sending an automatic email message when detecting events like fan break-down, unusual heating or lamp going out. It offers the capability of Network Surveillance System for theft detection as an add-on feature to other hardware protection: system lock and key lock function.

Other useful features include keystone correction and presentation assist functions with pointer, spot light and mouse control. Superb dust resistance is achieved with a DLP sealed optical system and filter-free design, which requires less maintenance.
