Mitsubishi Digital Electronics Launches Industry’s Brightest Six-Pound Projector

XD350U ColorView Boasts 2500 ANSI Lumens in 6.6 lb. Package

IRVINE, Calif., April 15, 2002 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, maker of award-winning, high-quality presentation and display products, today launches its XD350U ColorView DLP™ projector. At 2500 ANSI lumens, the XD350U ColorView is the brightest projector available on the market in a six-pound package, and the brightest in Mitsubishi Electric's ultra-portable line of projectors.

Set-up is quick and easy with the XD350U ColorView—images are perfected with many user-friendly features including both horizontal and vertical keystone correction. The universal-learning remote control unit that ships with the projector can be programmed to operate two additional video sources, such as a DVD player or VCR, switching smoothly between displays and eliminating the need for expensive control systems typical with other projectors.

"Our newest projector is the brightest 6-pound projector available today. It is light enough for road warriors, and bright enough for conference room installations," said Aki Ninomiya, director, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics.

The XD350U ColorView is fully compatible with Mitsubishi Digital's new ProjectorView™ networking system, which connects its projectors via an external serial-to-Ethernet translator. With ProjectorView, Mitsubishi projectors are instantly connected to a local area network (LAN) through an assigned IP address, and controlled and monitored with a web browser from a node in the LAN or through the Internet.

Attaining true, accurate colors is simple through the XD350U ColorView's intuitive six-axis color adjustments and dynamic gamma mode controls. sRGB compliance is also supported as a color preset.

The XD350U ColorView has an MSRP of $6495, and comes with Mitsubishi's full three-year warranty on parts and labor, the only standard three-year warranty in the industry, plus a 90-day warranty on the lamp. And, like all Mitsubishi XGA ColorView projectors, the XD350U ColorView comes with the Express Replacement Assistance (ERA) Program, a nationwide comprehensive service provided for units under warranty that offers next business-day replacement for down units when or where available.
