Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America?s Presentation Products Division today introduced its newest true 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution HC6000 home theater projector.
Improving upon and replacing Mitsubishi?s HC5000, the HC6000 offers enhanced features at under $4000, performing seamlessly with the latest Blu-ray or HD DVD technology.
Mitsubishi has improved the HC6000?s auto iris function for quicker black to light imaging and increased its contrast ratio to 13,000:1.
The new HC6000 provides two HDMI connectors allowing for a digital-to-digital link between the projector and its image sources. The 1000 ANSI lumens projector offers a powered lens shift and powered zoom for easy installation and set-up, making it perfect for installed home theater environments.
Mitsubishi also incorporates the HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) video processor inside the projector, for a more streamlined form factor.
Mitsubishi?s HC6000 is designed with inorganic LCD panels that are durable and provide a more color-consistent, image than previous generation LCD panels. Mitsubishi is also offering an accessory air filter that can be applied over the air panel for an even cleaner projector environment.
With up to 5000 hours of lamp-life (in low mode), HC6000 owners won?t have to change lamps often, but when it?s necessary the new projector offers a design that makes replacement quick and easy.
The manufacturer?s suggested price of Mitsubishi?s new HC6000 is under $4000 and will be available in October through authorized Mitsubishi dealers. The projector comes with Mitsubishi?s two-year limited warranty on parts and labor plus a 90-day limited warranty on the lamp.
