DLP: A Technology Everyone Can Benefit From

Projectors based on DLP technology are cost-effective for home, office, and school. Although comparably priced to alternative technologies, DLP technologys picture reliability and performance consistently outshines them all. DLP projectors are plug-and-play, user-friendly, and can be setup in minutes. With zero hassle, minimal maintenance, and whisper-quiet operation, you can focus on your content and not on your projector.

Finally, Technology Built To Last (And Last)

Thanks to Texas Instruments ingenuity, Sharps XVZ3100 Home Theater Front Projector is guaranteed an impressive lifespan. The DLP chip the brains behind it all is based on a semiconductor technology: its 100% digital, and its millions of microscopic mirrors deliver a precise, life-like image. Backed by Texas Instruments TrueVision Image Processing and BrilliantColor Technology , the image you get from the XVZ3100 projector is vibrant and virtually immune to picture degradation, making Sharps XVZ3100 DLP projector the obvious choice for long-lasting reliability.

From The Lab To Your Livingroom

When a DLP chip is coordinated with a digital video or graphic signal, a light source, and a projection lens, its mirrors can reflect a digital image onto a screen or other surface. How exactly does this work A DLP chips micromirrors are mounted on tiny hinges that enable them to tilt either toward the projectors light source (ON) or away from it (OFF) creating a light or dark pixel on the projection surface. The more often a micromirror is switched on, the lighter the gray it is. The more often a micromirror is turned off, the darker the gray it is. Thus images are created by virtue of a series of light and dark areas. So where does the color come from Well, I was just getting to that . . .

Putting The Color In The Picture

Along with image information, digital video and graphic signals carry color information. The colors are produced after the white light generated by the projector lamp passes through the six segment, 5x color wheel as it travels to the surface (the micromirrors) of the DLP chip. Its the job of the color wheel to filter the light into red, green, and blue. Its the job of the DLP projection system to create the actual color you see based on the color information (i.e. periwinkle) sent from the signal. And since the DLP system can create at least 16.7 million colors, expect exceptional color rendition.

The Difference Is In The Details

Its the Twin Iris System that gives the XVZ3100 its spectacular 6500:1 contrast ratio. What good is contrast ratio, you may ask A higher contrast ratio means a greater ability to discern fine, detailed differences between the darkest and lightest colors. It means getting the whitest whites and the blackest blacks. It means vibrant images. Still feel the need to tweak The XVZ3100 also comes with the Color Management System (CMS), which allows you to manually adjust the red, yellow, green, cyan, blue, and magenta color characteristics.

Getting Connected

This projector does a spectacular job in getting the most of any signal you send through it and provides all the best options for getting a high quality video signal into it. HDMI, component, RGB/component, composite, and S-Video inputs let you connect popular video sources like DVD players and VCRs, and the XVZ3100 is HDTV compatible so it can display HDTV signals including 1080i, 1035i, and 720p. Its compatible with XGA, SVGA, VGA, and Mac computer monitor connectors, and it even includes an RS-232 interface.

Filter, Filter. Whos Got The Filter

With the Sharp XVZ3100, filters (and buttons) are a thing of the past. The XVZ3100 comes with sealed optics to prevent dust, dirt, and smoke from entering the vital optic system. The benefit to you, dear consumer, is less maintenance and a longer projector life. See, you can have the best of both worlds.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
