Sharp this week debuted six new models in its lineup of projectors, ranging from a high-light-output, three-chip DLP model to a short-throw projector that can display images up to 100 inches from a distance of 4.3 feet.

The installation projector offers a resolution of 1,280 x 800 (WXGA), a brightness of 5,200 ANSI lumens, and a contrast ratio of 1,800:1, with seven interchangeable lenses. With its standard lens (1.25x powered zoom), the XG-P560W sells for $14,995. Without a lens, it sells for $13,995.

Sharp also introduced several mid-range DLP-based projectors, ranging from resolutions of XGA (1,024 x 768) to WXGA and brightness ratings up to 4,200 ANSI lumens.
