CEDIA 2006: Sharp XV-Z20000 1080p DLP Projector

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

This is Sharp's big, beautiful 1080p projector, the Z20000. It uses Texas Instruments DLP technology. The projector has a brightness of 1,000 ANSI lumens and an amazing 12,000:1 contrast ratio. On the back it has two HDMI ports along with DVI and composite (jump to see a picture of the rear).

The projector is capable of playing 16:9 widescreen images in a full 1080p HD resolution. The unfortunate thing is that this projector will set you back a very-hefty $12,000. It will be available in mid to late October. The piano-black finish is quite sexy though, if I do say so myself.
