Sharp has announced the XR-1S Notevision, a personal DLPTM projector that can fit into a carry-on bag with a laptop. About the size of a pair of paperback novels, the XR-1S measures 9.7 by 2.5 by 4.8 inches and weighs just over three pounds. It has a native SVGA resolution, is compatible with up to SXGA+, and boasts a 1500:1 contrast ratio. You can vary the projector’s brightness, choosing between the “standard” operating mode (1100 ANSI lumens) or low-power “economy” mode (970 ANSI lumens). The Notevision XR-1S will be available next month at a suggested list price of US$1,895.
