Sharp has unveiled a new range of 3D-ready projectors for larger venues that offer improved brightness and resolution.

Designed for big spaces such as university lecture halls, conference rooms and churches, the XG-PH80 series projectors incorporate DLP Link technology for high quality 3D output from a single projector.

The first two models in the range are the XG-PH80W-N, which offers 5,600 lumens brightness and HD compatible WXGA native resolution, and the XG-PH80X-N, with 6,300 lumens and XGA native resolution.

The company claims that when used with compatible 3D field sequential content, PC, and optional 3D active shutter glasses that support DLP Link technology, these projectors can achieve superb 3D imagery. Both models are also fully compatible with traditional 2D sources.

In addition, they feature an intelligent dual-lamp design, offering users the choice of single or dual-lamp projection, as well as standard brightness or “Eco+Quiet” mode projection. The dual-lamp system offers extra reliability - if one lamp fails, the presentation can continue without interruption by using the other lamp.

Les Burger, Sharp's senior product planning manager for professional projectors, said, “The new XG-PH80 Series projectors provide outstanding performance and image quality.“

"With the fast-growing amount of 3D content becoming available, these are clearly the right projectors at the right time for just about any organisation’s presentation needs."
