Sharp Intros Notevision C-Series Projector

C50 unit offers 3,000 ANSI lumens By Dave Nagel
Sharp today introduced its new Notevision C50 projector. The new 11.2-pound unit offers native XGA resolution (1,024 x 768) and 3,000 ANSI lumens of brightness. It will be available this month.

The C50 offers a number of fairly new technologies, including Sharp's own CV-IC System II, an image-processing chip that cleans up jagged edges, minimizes image noise and implements keystone corrections. It also has a built-in sRGB color management system and individual adjustments for red, green, blue, cyan, yellow and magenta. The model operates at 36 dB (33 db in Power Save Mode) and offers separate S-video and composite inputs and two separate RGB inputs, including loop out capability.

Other features include

  • "L" type optical system, designed for higher brightness and improved imaging efficiency at a lower cost.
  • Lamp save mode to prolong lamp life.
  • An individual cooling system for each of the three LCD panels, lowering fan noise and increasing the panels' lifespan.
  • New lens system for lens changeover to the optional Short Throw lens.
  • Built-in security with key code activation to prevent unauthorized operation.
  • Automatic and manual image-adjustment.
  • AutoSYNC for adjusting computer images without having to access the projector's menu system.
  • Advanced ImageACE Resizing for adjusting different source resolutions to match the projector's native resolution.
  • Ability to handle NTSC, PAL, SECAM and HDTV video signals.

The Notevision C50 measures 15.4" x 3.9" x 11.6". It will be available in August for $6,195. For more information, visit
