Sharp's XG-MB50X DLP Projector
Sharp's (www.sharplcd.com) new full-featured, 8.6-pound XG-MB50X DLP projector was designed with the classroom in mind, starting with its built-in RS-232C network connectivity for remote monitoring and operation so that support departments can check lamp life or assist a user from anywhere. The multimedia projector features 2,000 ANSI lumens—bright enough for a clear image in any lighting condition—a native XGA resolution, as well as a unique condenser lens optical system that delivers rich black tones and sharp onscreen images. The XG-MB50X also provides schools with many cost-saving features, including its low-power “eco & quiet” mode that helps conserve lamp life and reduce fan noise. Rounding out the XG-MB50X's features are key-code activation for theft prevention, an onscreen guide and help functions for easy setup and operation, and a wireless remote. Price: $1,595
