It has a built-in network connection with a RJ-45 LAN Connector for remote control and access by a Web browser for diagnostics as well as automatic e-mail of product status and a RS-232C connectivity for remote control. This portable projector features Texas Instruments' DDR** DLP(R) technology for high image quality (2000:1 contrast ratio), as well as XGA native resolution for detailed images. For superior color accuracy, the projector incorporates a Condenser Lens Optical System that creates rich black tones and sharp on-screen images. A 3x speed 4-segment color wheel with an enhanced white color segment optimizes white level and brightness to ensure that all projected images are uniform.
Professional LCD Projectors
Designed for settings that demand flexibility and ease of use, the new Conference/Classroom series LCD projectors from Sharp (models XG-C330X and XG-C430X) feature high brightness (3,300 to 4,000 ANSI Lumens) for a superior picture in virtually any lighting environment. Power-saving technologies, theft-deterrent capabilities and superior color accuracy as well as image detail via three polysilicon LCDs round out the impressive feature package of these native-XGA projectors. The XG-C430X and XG-C330X have a built-in RJ-45 LAN connection and Web server that allows direct control from the desktop to the projector without special software, as well as an RS-232C port for remote control. For flexibility, in addition to the included standard zoom lens, the new projectors offer four optional lenses (short throw, telephoto zoom 1.29x, telephoto zoom 1.52x and telephoto zoom 1.41x) making these models adaptable to even the most demanding application.
