Sharp Announces a 1080p 3D Home Theater Projector

Posted Thu Jan 19, 2012 at 10:45 AM PST by Dick Ward

The DLP projector provides a 50,000:1 contrast ratio and 1600 lumens brightness.

Sharp's latest projector, the XV-Z30000, is capable of giving you a 1080p picture and plays nice with all your 3D devices to boot. It's a DLP front projector that Sharp says uses light more effectively than competitors and produces a better 3D picture.

The XV-Z30000 offers a center-mounted lens with both vertical and horizontal shift functionality and 2x optical zoom so installation is fairly flexible. It comes equipped with V-Stretch as well, which lets you switch to a 2.35:1 aspect ratio at the touch of a button.

Sharp's XV-Z30000 will be available in March at the price of $4,999. Two sets of 3D glasses will be included with it as well as an IR emitter and a remote.
