Sharp has expanded its 3-chip DLP projector suite with the new XG-P560W model. The installed projector is the company's first professional WXGA, 0.65-inch 3-chip DLP offering, according to Sharp. It combines 5,200 ANSI lumens of brightness with 1280x800 native resolution and a 1,800:1 contrast ratio. It comes with seven interchangeable lenses and a dual-lamp lighting system that offers redundancy for uninterrupted presentations, says the company. The XG-P560W's built-in video-processing chip, the CV-IC II System, aims to smooth jagged edges, minimize image noise, and create a rectangular image using keystone correction to produce the sharpest possible image.

The recently upgraded ZvPro 250 HD video distribution system from ZeeVee now supports 1080i output. The company says its goal for the upgrade is to allow distribution of HD video using traditional methods, such as simple coax and tuners in TVs. The ZvPro 250 encodes and delivers MPEG-2 transport streams modulated as QAM256 TV channels over the full cable TV spectrum, producing HD video that can be directly received by any current HDTV. This allows end-to-end solutions to be constructed at much lower cost points, says the company. The number of HDTVs that can receive the broadcast from a single ZvPro 250 is reportedly unlimited.
