Natural Colour Reproductivity
DMD™ is a reflective device which can prevent light from coming through
by controlling mirror angles. Making good use of this DMD™ feature plus
employing a thoroughly developed optical engine, the XV-Z10000U/E
provides sharper blacks in black parts and a higher contrast ratio of
2600:1. Real blacks and clearly reproduced subtle colours provide
impressively beautiful pictures.

Optimization of the Optical Engine
From the onset of XV-Z10000U/E development, all optical parts
have been thoroughly analyzed and experimented on in order to
search for higher contrast ratio. This brings anti-reflective coating
for every optical part, optimization of light insertion into DMD™
pixels, and a shutter in front of the projection lens. As a result,
backlight from diffused reflection in the optical engine and light
leaking from light reflection from objects other than DMD™
mirrors have been dramatically reduced to achieve higher contrast
270W SHP Lamp System
The 270W SHP lamp affords rich light quantity and adjusts
spectral characteristics, resulting in high luminance and high
colour reproduction, especially for reds, which remains a task very
difficult for conventional models.

World’s First 6x* Speed Engine
Single DLP™ projectors employ a time sequential CW system in
which RGB images projected on the screen sequentially are mixed
and recognized as one image from the afterimage effects on
human eyes. But this causes a phenomenon called “Colour
Breaking”. And since projection time for each colour is relatively
long with the 1x and 2x engine, remaining afterimages appear on
the image for some time like a RGB rainbow. For a theatre
projector, this is a major weak point because mainly moving
images are projected. With the world's first use of a 6x* Speed
Colour Wheel in front DLP™ projectors, the XV-Z10000U/E
achieves a projection time 1/6 that of a 1x engine and improves
colour breaking up to

Sharp’s Original High Image Quality System Realizes Beautiful Images
Superior 16:9 Image
Conventional projectors extend a picture evenly
from the 4:3 original to fit into a 16:9 screen,
resulting in pictures stretched horizontally, i.e., wide
and short. With the XV-Z10000U/E, pictures can be
projected in a thinner ratio in the middle part and
only extended at the sides. This maintains natural
and proportional pictures close to the 4:3 original.

The Colour Management System enables
adjustment of only a specified colour by just
pointing out the colour or the object on the screen
without influencing other colours on the same
screen. With convenient one-colour adjustment
there’s no need for troublesome whole-screen
Pattern Matching I/P Conversion
Enhanced Up-Scaling
Gamma Correction
Sharp’s original High Image Quality System
employs motion-adaptive I/P conversion by using
motion pixel detection, examining every pixel to
ascertain whether a motion pixel or not by
comparing four-field information. It then selects
intra-field I/P conversion for a pixel detected as a
motion pixel, and inter-field I/P conversion for a
still pixel. This motion adaptive I/P conversion
drastically improves jagged edges and blur level,
which have been major problems for conventional
I/P conversion. Also, edge detection and motion
quantity smoothing contribute to minimize
malfunction of motion pixel detection. In addition,
Pattern Matching Technology is employed to
elevate the level of high-quality I/P Conversion.
This function depicts pattern information in a
period from visual data, finds the vertically
matching patterns (which was until now
impossible) and creates a new pattern in the
midpoint of these patterns by their mutual
relation. Thus it smoothes out jaggies of
somewhat slanted, almost horizontal lines and
edges, providing higher quality images.
Conventional projectors need to convert the
resolution values of normal video signals in order
to project normal PAL or NTSC video pictures
through high resolution panels. This sometimes
results in unclear or jagged pictures. The
Enhanced Up-Scaling employs a much more
advanced smoothing technology, producing a crisp
and even picture.
Gamma Correction, with 6 position settings,
provides the ideal picture reproduction for any
picture source from videos to sports programmes.
Reducing resolution loss, this function allows
dark, low-iridescent scenes to be reproduced with
clarity. Plus, the XV-Z10000U/E uses simple
remote control-operated functions for adjusting
gamma, gain and offset of each RGB, enabling

16:9 HD DLP™ High-Definition
The XV-Z10000U/E employs the HD DMD™ Chip with

projectors. A 16:9 image, for example, contains more than
1.56 times the image information capacity than XGA and
2.56 times that of SVGA, providing high-precision picture
projection. For 720P HD signals in particular, an original
high-resolution picture can be projected without
deterioration caused by pixel conversion.
The XV-Z10000U/E employs a Sirocco Fan with
less air disturbance for noise reduction while
