MITSUBISHI DIGITAL ELECTRONICS AMERICA BRINGS HDTV HOME CINEMA PROJECTOR TO INFOCOMMWorld’s Quietest HC2000 Offers Professional-Level Features for Home Cinema Enthusiasts
IRVINE, Calif., June 9, 2004 - Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, the industry leader in home entertainment technology and innovation, today introduced its HC2000 projector with features that promise an extraordinary home cinema experience. The HC2000 projector offers the latest technology in video display, image excellence, noise reduction, convenient installation and HDTV compatibility in home theater projectors.
"Our challenge was to create an outstanding high performance combination of incredibly smooth video images, detail in black areas, extremely quiet operation and ease-of-use," said Steve Medina, senior manager of product planning and development for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division. "The HC2000 met and exceeded those challenges with the latest technology available in the home display arena."
HIGH VIDEO PERFORMANCE - SMOOTH OPERATOR
Mitsubishi's new HC2000 also boasts the latest DLP™ chip from Texas Instruments, known as the TI HD2+™ chip for high performance video imaging. The projector has a 4x and 5x color wheel speed selection to provide a customized viewing experience; rainbow effects from fast motion are virtually eliminated.
HIGH CONTRAST RATIO - DETAIL IN THE DARKS
The projector is designed with a distinctive 8-segment dark-video enhancement color wheel that has two palettes of red-blue-green, and two dark green segments, minimizing noise and providing more details in the shadows. This level of detail in the darks makes film noir and dark action films more vibrant and exciting to watch.
WORLD'S QUIETEST PROJECTOR - CAN'T SEE IT, CAN'T HEAR IT
The HC2000 is also designed to fit in an out-of-the-way place to minimize viewing distraction. Using a vertical lens shift of 50 percent, the projector can be mounted directly to the ceiling with a slim bracket, and project to a 106" diagonal screen positioned 30" down from where the ceiling meets the wall. The HC2000 chassis is designed to avoid leaking any internal light, which also can detract from the projected image.
-HDTV COMPLIANT - THE FUTURE IS NOW
"HD is the buzz for everyone in the home cinema market," said Aki Ninomiya, vice president, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division. "And the HC2000 is the Mitsubishi projector everyone will be talking about."
To create an overall home theater environment based on Mitsubishi's technological excellence, the HC2000 can be connected to an HDTV tuner/controller such as the Mitsubishi HD-5000 and a surround sound audio system for a full cinema experience.
