Despite Rumors to the Contrary, Sharp Says its Not Exiting LCD Projector Market

sharplogo_0409Virtually the entire first quarter of 2009, Sharp has fought off rumors, verbally, that they were not exiting the LCD projector market — mostly generated due to their inability to ship their “C” Series projectors.  Well, Sharp has finally issued a memo that puts to rest the rumors — for now.  Production problems have forced Sharp, traditionally an LCD-first company, to lead with DLP until a new optical component supplier can be identified.
