MAHWAH, N.J., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Sharp Imaging and Information
Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation,
announced the latest addition to their innovative line of professional
projectors: the PG-LW3500/PG-LW3000 and PG-LX3500/PG-LX3000. This new series
of portable ultra-lightweight projectors are 3D-Ready and feature DLP^®
BrilliantColor™ technology to ensure dazzling, highly realistic images with
long-lasting performance.

"The PG-L Seriesfamily of projectors represents the latest wave of Sharp
innovation, combining state-of-the-art image quality in an ultra-light body
that makes these projectors a highly compelling and easy-to-use asset for any
presentation," said Mike Marusic, Senior Vice President of Marketing and
Business Solutions Group, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America.
"With the growing use of multimedia content in both the classroom and the
boardroom, Sharp's new family of 3D-Ready projectors makes it simple to
connect with content and easy to engage audiences."

The PG-LX3000 and PG-LX3500 projectors are XGA native resolution (4:3 aspect
ratio) and weigh only 5.5 lbs. The Wide XGA, PG-LW3000 and PG-LW3500 (WXGA
native resolution/16:10 aspect ratio) offer compatibility with standard XGA
and 720p HDTV as well as "pixel perfect" 1280x800 resolution from the newest
generation of WXGA PC's. They are also extremely light and portable. Weighing
less than 6 lbs. they are among the lightest in their class and ideal for
schools or any large organization where projectors are frequently transported
from room to room. An optional ceiling mount (model number AN-XRCM30) is also

3D-Ready BrilliantColor™ Technology

Both the PG-LW and PG-LX models are 3D-Ready, incorporating DLP Link™
technology for use with compatible 3D content and active glasses. DLP Link
enables seamless 3D data synchronization without requiring special data or
position emitters, offering highly realistic and compelling 3D images without
costly, time-consuming set-up.

The BrilliantColor™ technology in the PG-LX3000/PG-LW3000 models improves
picture brilliance, particularly for intermediate colors. Imagery is further
enhanced by Sharp's six-segment, double speed color wheel, which offers unique
color-matching technology, enabling images to be reproduced with dazzling,
life-like clarity. Rich color and sharpness are further supported through a
2,000:1 contrast ratio and brightness that ranges from 3,000 lumens (PG-LX3000
and PG-LW3000) to 3,500 lumens (PG-LX3500 and PG-LW3500).

Wide Range of Inputs and Features

Both models accommodate a wide array of inputs to support today's growing
range of high-quality multimedia formats. These include HDMI™, for a simple
digital-to-digital connection, two terminals for computer RGB/components, and
composite video and stereo audio. RJ-45 LAN and RS-232C serial
control/communications ports are also provided.

Ease of use is delivered through features such as on-screen display quick
menus for instant setting of resolution, keystone and Eco-mode and the use of
intuitive, on-screen imagery to simplify the task of adjusting focus, zoom and
height. For times when no projection screen is available, the PG-L3000 Series
takes ease of use even further by letting users specify blackboard, whiteboard
or colored wall as the projection background.

Advanced features include Web Browser Control for remote access and
management, auto diagnosis and e-mail alerts, and support for Sharp Display
Manager software. Sharp Display Manager lets users control multiple projectors
simultaneously from a remote location, generates periodic error diagnosis and
reporting and notifies a remote computer of potential theft when projector
cables are disconnected.

Additionally, lamp replacement is a snap even when the projector is mounted on
the ceiling. With the lamp access being on top of the projector, you can
replace the lamp without ever removing it from the mount.

The PG-LW3500 ($1,765 MSRP) and PG-LW3000 ($1,515 MSRP) are available now and
the PG-LX3500 ($1,455 MSRP) and PG-LX3000 ($1,200 MSRP) will be available
later in Q1, 2013 through Sharp's network of ProAV dealers, resellers and
authorized distributors.
