Full HD Panel with High-Resolution Reproduction and Native 12000:1 High Contrast Ratio – Incredible High-Quality Home Theater Projector
High-Performace Projection Capability
Full HD Panel (1,920 x 1,080 pixels)
High-Quality Picture Reproduction
Full HD Panel (1,920 x 1,080 pixels)
The XV-Z20000 provides Full HD 1,920 x 1,080 pixel high-resolution,
high-definition pictures with greater capability for large screen
pictures to prevent rough, grainy colors. And the panel is compatible
with next-generation digital broadcast systems.
1000 ANSI Lumen High Brightness
Incorporating Sharp optoelectronics technology, the XV-Z20000
provides 1000 ANSI lumen brightness in high brightness mode to enjoy
large-screen pictures.
High-Quality Reliability
Dual-Iris Mechanism with Three Modes
Long-Life High-Performance DLP Picture
The XV-Z20000 uses a Dual-Iris Mechanism for its optical engine. The
mechanism features independent irises for adjusting illuminating conditions
and projecting images. Also, the
Illuminating iris
remote control can be used to
Projecting iris
select from the high-contrast
mode, middle mode, and highbrightness mode to match
screen conditions for watching
movies, sports, or other material.
With DLP® technology minimally absorbing high-output light, the
projectors maintain uniform color reproduction capability for a long period
of time. Also DLP® silicon chip formation with finely structured mirrors
provides stable performance and delivers high-quality pictures for longer
periods. The DLP® chip in the XV-Z20000 contributes to a long lifespan. In
addition, because there is no burn-in or remaining afterimage, the
projectors are ideal for DLP ® projection
still picture projection
such as for guidance
board applications and
projecting CAD
After 4,100 hours
12000:1 Native Contrast Ratio
Contrast ratio is usually derived by measuring the greatest value between
bright and dark scenes, but Sharp’s native contrast ratio is measured for
each individual scene frame. The XV-Z20000
therefore maintains a very stable contrast ratio
of 12000:1 regardless of scene light level. This
high ratio is produced from a dual-iris system
that has both input and output optical systems to
control light volume and precisely control optics.

(The picture shows no significant deterioration
even after using the DLP ® panel 4,100 hours.)
Projection Flexibility
A Variety of Interfaces for Multiple Entertainment
Short Throw Lens (Optical 1.35x Zoom Lens)
DVI-I Terminal and Two HDMI Terminals with HDCP
The newly developed Short Throw Lens achieves 100-inch large screen
projection even from the short distance of 13’5” (4.1 m). In addition,
the projector can be mounted more flexibly with the 1.35X zoom lens.
Use of DVI-I terminals, the interface for digital content compatible with
copy protection signals (HDCP), delivers all-digital projection from input
straight through to the projected picture without picture loss, which usually
occurs from A/D and D/A conversion or from digital cinemas using DLP®.
This also helps to build a home theater computer environment using a DVI
output terminal for DVD entertainment. Plus, two HDMI terminals enable
simultaneous connection with the HDMI terminals on set-top boxes or high
performance DVD recorders for which HDMI is standard.

The optical mechanism of DLP® system projectors is sealed in its structure,
preventing dust, dirt and smoke from entering core parts of the optics.
Advanced Picture Control
functions enable quick setting of
the appropriate color effects and
impressive picture modes.
With a DVI terminal compatible with conventional players and
computers, the XV-Z20000 is equipped with three digital inputs
including two HDMI inputs in addition to various video inputs, such as
two component, S-video and composite inputs. It also employs a
trigger terminal that automatically operates an electric motorized
screen when the power is turned on and off.
