Sharp Electronics Corp. on Wednesday introduced its Notevision MB series of Digital Light Processor (DLP)-equipped projectors. Designed for conference rooms, board rooms and other mid-sized meeting halls, the Notevision MB comes equipped in two different models — the PG-MB60X and the
XG-MB70X. Both projectors come equipped with 1.5x zoom and feature native 1024×768 pixel (XGA) resolution. They both support NTSC, PAL, SECAM and DTV/HDTV video signals, and come equipped with two 15-pin D-sub video connectors, S-Video and composite video inputs.
Users can adjust the brightness level of the projector, which can help conserve lamp life — the XG-MB70X model can work at up to 3000 ANSI lumens while the PG-MB60X can operate at up to 2500 ANSI lumens. The XG-MB70X features auto-focusing capabilities and an RJ-45 network connector to enable administrators to remotely operate and diagnose the projector over a LAN, while the PG-MB60X supports optional LAN connectivity through a separate interface. The MX-MB70X model also features a built-in Web server. The PG-MB60X costs US$4,295; the XG-MB70X costs $4,995. Sharp had not updated its Web site with information about the PG-MB60X model as MacCentral posted this article.
