SHARP XV-Z20000 High Definition Front Projector

This SharpVision 1080p high definition DLP® front projector represents the pinnacle in home theater. Utilizing DLP 0.95" DarkChip3™ 1920 x 1080 technology from Texas Instruments and Sharp’s advanced proprietary Computer Video & Integrated Composer (CV-IC System III) technology, the Z20000 boasts a 12000:1 contrast ratio and a high brightness 1000 ANSI lumens rating, delivering one of the best pictures available in consumer home theater projectors today.


High Contrast Ratio 12000:1 (in High Contrast Mode) enhances the Z20000’s ability to discern fine, detailed differences between the darkest and lightest colors and provides superior black level reproduction.

1000 ANSI Lumens (in High Brightness Mode) is an ANSI lumens rating that delivers a bright, beautiful picture.

Native 1080p High Definition Capability is compatible with 1080i and 720p HD signals.

7 Segment 5x-Speed ND (Neutral Density) Color Wheel achieves flicker-free, high-grade images and accurate color reproduction.

Sharp’s proprietary, third generation advanced video scaler circuitry up-converts standard definition signals to the native 1080p HD resolution of the projector (1920 x 1080).

Powered Iris Switchover Function (High Contrast Mode/ Middle Mode/High Brightness Mode) instantly changes multiple brightness and contrast settings with the touch of a button. This allows the greatest flexibility for varying home theater environments.

Manual Optical Lens Shift simplifies installation and allows you to adjust the projected image up or down while maintaining a square image.

HDMI™ High Definition Multimedia Interface for convenient connection to digital devices.

DVI-I with High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) Terminal aids compatibility with the new generation of high definition set-top boxes.
