New Micro Projector Packs Power in Three-Pound Package

November 9, 2004 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, maker of award-winning high-quality presentation and display products, today introduced its newest, smallest projector, the Mini-Mits® XD60U. The new Mini-Mits projector shines 1800 ANSI-lumens on any road-warrior's bright ideas, and it weighs only 3.3 pounds for easy portability from office to home.

"Our new Mini-Mits XD60U is the sexy convertible sports car of our projector line, cute and compact but really powerful," said James Chan, director, projector product marketing for Mitsubishi. "It moves easily from professional environments to at-home big screen movie nights, and even accepts HDTV signals up to 1080i."

Offering native XGA (1024 x 768 pixels) resolution, the Mini-Mits XD60U incorporates DLP™ chip technology along with a remarkable contrast ratio of 2000:1. This combination provides crisp, fine details even in the darkest images and shadowed areas while its long-life lamp features up to 2,000 hours in low mode. The projector accepts analog, digital and even HDTV signals, making the Mini-Mits XD60U projector versatile for use on the road and temptingly small and powerful enough to bring home for the biggest screen at-home movie-night.

Security features are important for a projector this small, and the Mini-Mits XD60U features a Kensington password-protected security lock designed to inhibit unauthorized use at workplace presentation venues.

"Our customers often ask for more functionality from smaller, lighter and brighter projectors," said Aki Ninomiya, vice president, Mitsubishi. "We're happy to introduce the new Mini-Mits XD60U, which expands our product capabilities by incorporating a new, affordable dimension of home use to our projector line's value set."

Pricing, Availability, Warranty

Estimated retail price on Mitsubishi's new XD60U is $2,495, and it is currently available through authorized Mitsubishi Digital dealers and retail outlets. The Mini-Mits XD60U projector comes with Mitsubishi Digital's three-year limited warranty on parts and labor plus a 90-day limited warranty on the lamp. And like all Mitsubishi Digital XGA ColorView projectors, the XD60U is covered by the Express Replacement Assistance (ERA) Program, a nationwide comprehensive service provided for units under warranty that offers next business-day replacement for down units.
