Sharp has begun shipping its first short-throw DLP BrilliantColor professional projector, the PG-F267X. Suited to interactive presentations, the PG-F267X simplifies projector placement in classrooms and meeting rooms with limited space, achieving a 100-inch diagonal image from a distance of 4.3 feet, according to the company.

"The new PG-F267X increases Sharp's presence in the education market, providing a high brightness projector for smaller presentation spaces and easy steps for operation that teachers and business professionals will appreciate," said Dan Wynne, senior director of marketing for Sharp's Professional Display Division, in a statement.

At 7.5 pounds the PG-F267X can be ceiling or wall mounted, or carried from room to room. An on-screen guide and help function assist with simple setup and operation, while a quick-start feature requires approximately three seconds at start-up to project an image. With direct power off switching, the user can unplug and move the projector immediately after use. Ultra-quiet cooling fans with a front exhaust engine reduce distracting fan noise to a less noticeable level.

For networked schools and meeting centers, the PG-F267X offers an RJ-45 LAN network connection with security monitoring that can send an e-mail to the administrator's PC in the even that the LAN connection breaks. This connection also permits remote access by Web browser for diagnostics and the ability to link to a specific Web site for service and support.

The Sharp PG-F267X is now available through Sharp authorized dealers and resellers for an MSRP of $1,895.
