Mitsubishi is introducing the Diamond 3D 1080p full HD and the entry-level HC4000 HD home theater projectors at the CEDIA Home Theater Show in Atlanta, September 23-26, 2010.
Diamond 3D projector
Powered by an SXRD reflective liquid-crystal optical engine, Mitsubishi adds its own algorithms and processing technologies to create high-brightness and high-contrast (up to 120,000:1 full on/full off) images.
A key element in projector performance is its lens, and Mitsubishi has incorporated extra-low dispersion glass into its six-piece, 17-cluster structure for higher functionality that minimizes chromatic aberration.
With its auto-iris function, Mitsubishi?s Diamond 3D home theater projector automatically sets the optimal aperture according to each scene, and its 120Hz refresh rate produces smooth transitions. An independent management function allows adjustment to color characteristics such as hue, intensity and brightness individually (red, green, cyan, magenta and yellow), without affecting the other colors.
With a wide range of powered lens shift (100% vertical and 45% horizontal), this new Mitsubishi Diamond 3D projector is easy to install, even in a complicated room configuration. In some cases there may not be a need to turn the projector upside down in a ceiling mount, and its 1.8x powered-zoom range also gives installers additional installation flexibility.
At only 19dBa, this Diamond 3D projector is extremely quiet. Two HDMI version 1.4 inputs support 3D signals, as well as provide easy set-up options for multiple video inputs, and its RS232 support offers plug-and-play connectivity with third-party remote operations.
Mitsubishi?s new Diamond 3D projector also offers low cost of ownership with an estimated 4000-hour lamp life in low conservation mode. It also has a simple rear-access lamp design for easy lamp exchanges and a one-year limited warranty on the lamp.
HC4000 HD Home Theater Projector
Mitsubishi also exhibits its new HC4000 high-definition home theater projector at the CEDIA show in Atlanta, September 23-27, 2010. The new HC4000 has a wealth of high-performance features at an entry-level price.
Mitsubishi?s new HC4000 projector uses Texas Instruments? latest 1080p DLP chip, the DarkChip 3 with BrilliantColor. It blasts 1300 lumens and provides up to 750:1 ANSI contrast ratio.
Viewing widescreen 2.35:1 aspect ratio films is easy with the HC4000 projector, thanks to its anamorphic lens support. Users simply position an anamorphic lens in front of the HC4000 lens and select the appropriate Anamorphic Mode 1 or Mode 2, either 2.35:1 or 16:9 aspect ratios, for the corresponding movie format.
Mitsubishi?s HC4000 offers low cost of ownership with an estimated 5000-hour lamp life in low conservation mode. It?s filter-free design and advanced semi-sealed construction helps makes the HC4000?s optics resistant to dust, dirt and other micro particles within its light path. The HC4000 also has a convenient and simple top-access lamp design for easy lamp exchanges.
Subdued scenes are easy to hear with the HC4000?s quiet engine that has a noise level rated at 25dBA in low mode. The projector includes a native digital HDMI input and at less than eight pounds can be taken almost anywhere. With its built-in 1.5x-zoom ratio lens as well as a digital keystone correction, set-up is easy and more flexible for various room configurations.
The estimated price of Mitsubishi?s HC4000 is $1495 and is available through popular online resellers and authorized Mitsubishi dealers. The projector comes with Mitsubishi?s two-year limited warranty on parts and labor plus a one-year limited warranty on the lamp.
