WXGA professional projector combines vibrant color reproduction, exceptional compatibility, reliability and affordability
Sharp adds a reliable and affordable professional projector to its ever-expanding suite of Wide-XGA (WXGA) DLP BrilliantColor Projectors. The PG-F325W combines enhanced colors and enriched imaging with 3000 ANSI Lumens brightness for captivating presentations in corporate, education and house of worship settings. The projector can display full 720p from HD sources and pixel-perfect 1280 x 800 (16:10 aspect ratio) WXGA resolution from the newest generation PCs. The PG-F325W offers a wide array of video and audio inputs for an extremely versatile presentation experience and offers an expanded color palette for more realistic and lifelike images, utilizing BrilliantColor technology with multi-color processing.
“We continue to expand our Wide-XGA professional projector line-up to offer business professionals a variety of presentation tools for different sized venues, lighting situations, image and content requirements,” said Dan Wynne, senior director of marketing, Professional Display Division, Sharp Information and Imaging Company of America. “Building on Sharp’s successful BrilliantColor PG Projector Series, the PG-F325W provides strong performance and ease of use while still offering an affordable price point, for value that business and education professionals will appreciate. ”
BrilliantColor and Sophisticated Image Quality
The new PG-F325W WXGA projector features high brightness of 3000 ANSI Lumens and 2200:1 Contrast Ratio for a clear picture in virtually any lighting condition. For superior color accuracy, the projector uses DLP BrilliantColor technology for truer, more vibrant colors. BrilliantColor 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.
Intuitive Design and Ease of Use
The PG-F325W 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 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 spotlight 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.
The Sharp PG-F325W projector affords a wide array of inputs and outputs for use in connecting to laptop and desktop computers, DVD Players, cable and satellite boxes, HDTV tuners, VCRs and video game consoles. 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 which provides secure, virtually noise-free digital connection. 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-F325W 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. Sharp’s free downloadable Sharp Display Manager Software allows for multiple projector management over a network and monitoring for theft protection.
The PG-F325W is backed by a three-year parts and labor limited warranty including three years of Sharp’s industry-leading 24-hour turnaround “ER” Express Repair support. The warranty on the user-replaceable projection lamp is 90 days.
The PG-F325W will be available in July for a Manufacturer’s Suggested List Price (MSLP) of $1,495 through Sharp authorized dealers and resellers.
