The Sharp XV-Z17000 is a high-cost DLP projector. This is Sharp's first 3D projector (compatible with "IR sync" and "DLP link" technologies). The DLP technology of the XV-Z17000 offers accuracy of color, which makes for a vibrant image. This projector is equipped with vertical/horizontal Keystone correction, which corrects spherical/trapezoidal distortion of an image on a flat screen. If you are operating in a small space, the Image Shift function of the XV-Z17000 shifts the image vertically (given it is in 16 x 9 format) to keep the image high-quality. The 23dB fan level of this projector ensures that your viewing will not be interrupted by unwanted noise. The XV-Z17000 has energy savings-based features such as low standby power consumption, and Eco mode (which helps to expand the lamp's 3,000 hours of life). The Sharp XV-Z17000 comes with two pairs of 3D glasses.
