MITSUBISHI INTRODUCES THE XL5980U INSTALLATION PROJECTOR

Projector Offers High Brightness, Motion-Sensitive Theft Alarm

IRVINE, Calif., April 28, 2006 – Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, known for its award-winning, high-quality presentation and display products, today announced its XL5980U LCD projector, boasting 5500 ANSI lumens for high brightness and an anti-theft alarm for installation venues like auditoriums, college classrooms and churches.

The projector also provides horizontal and vertical lens shift, offering extreme flexibility for most installations. Once the projector is in place, the picture can be readjusted optically or digitally, regardless of the screen used, without taking the projector out of its mount.

"This new LCD projector rounds out the Mitsubishi product line and offers our dealers more choices for their installations," said Frank Anzures, product manager, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division.

Other features of the XL5980U include a high contrast ratio of 600:1, and one of Mitsubishi's latest innovations, 3D CineView™, a proprietary video technology that significantly reduces flickering, artifacts, crawling or blinking, producing an image as sharp and smooth as its native film format.

Mitsubishi's new XL5980U is available at a suggested retail price of $8995. The projector comes with Mitsubishi's three-year limited warranty on parts and labor plus a 90-day limited warranty on the lamp. A special no-lens version, the XL5980LU, which allows customers to choose a wide variety of optional lenses that Mitsubishi offers for the XL5980U, will also be available at a suggested retail price of $7995.

Like all Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America XGA ColorView™ projectors, the XL5950LU 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.
