Five Minutes With Jerry GanguzzaAssociate Director, Marketing, Sharp Electronics LCD Products Group
Its hard to believe the advances that have happened in projection technology over the past several years. It seems like yesterday that Sharp introduced the industrys first high-performance LCD projector (1989) that literally created an entire new presentations marketplace. In little over 10 years, the state-of-the-technology has gone from the original Sharp XV-100 (which was a mere 382x234 resolution, with less than 100 ANSI Lumens brightness), to true SXGA large-venue models like the Sharp XG-V10WU (1280x1024 resolution, with close to 5000 eye-popping ANSI Lumens, and full HDTV/DTV compatibility).
And, if that wasnt amazing enough, we have gone from 30-pound projectors being considered "ultra-portable," down to our latest "micro-mobile" DLP models such as the Sharp Notevision M15 Series, that weigh just over 3-pounds, and literally have more than 8-times the brightness rating and, no exaggeration, almost 10 times the pixel resolution compared to the original XV-100!
These changes have truly revolutionized how and where projectors may be used in presentations. Due to the high performance, ease of use and installation of LCD projectors, they have dramatically expanded where projectors may be used, and in what applications. For example, in schools and businesses, projectors are now used in most every meeting and lecture/class room. With high-brightness/high-resolution projectors like the Sharp Notevision M15 series being smaller and lighter (and lower-cost) than many notebook PCs, they are now standard equipment for many traveling sales, marketing and training executives. In fact, the Sharp M15 series is so "micro-mobile," it will fit in most standard attaché cases (or PC carrying bag) with plenty of room for your notebook pc, handouts, and other accessories.
