Mitsubishi Adds XD435U-G to Quick Getaway Family of Projectors

USB Slot Quickens Total Presentation Time, Supports Collaboration

IRVINE, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- June 7, 2006-- Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, known for its award-winning, high-quality presentation and display products, has added a third projector to its new family of business and education projectors. Mitsubishi's new XD435U-G lets users make rapid exits after a presentation, using a quick power-down feature to accommodate tight classroom or conference room schedules. The XD435U-G accelerates setup and closedown times even more by providing a USB flash memory reader slot for instant presentations. The XD435U-G is the first Mitsubishi projector to offer a USB flash memory reader to facilitate collaboration; users simply connect a USB thumb drive and display saved .jpeg or .mpeg files such as photos or short video clips without the need of a computer.

"Presenters now have more flexibility and can quickly display their presentations with the use of the USB flash memory slot," said Frank Anzures, product manager for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division. "The rapid cool-down also helps presenters get back on the road quickly."

Along with its XD430U and SD430U, Mitsubishi's new XD435U-G boasts 2500 ANSI lumens, high brightness that is perfect for most lighting situations, including windowed boardrooms and brightly lit classrooms. For ceiling, tabletop or cart-mounted installations, this line of projectors comes with a security hook for easy tethering and mounting to thwart potential thefts in higher-risk environments.

The XD435U-G, available at a suggested retail price of $2,495, is aggressively priced to deliver great performance and value. The XD430U and SD430U projectors are available at suggested retail prices of $1,795 and $1,495 respectively. The new projectors also offer two PC inputs with a monitor loop-through for display flexibility, and are RS232c controllable for easy integration in environments using third-party control systems.

Each projector uses Texas Instruments' Digital Light Processing(TM) technology for exceptional image quality. Their advanced filter-free construction makes them resistant to dust, dirt and other particles for maintenance-free operation and image clarity.

"Our customers have been asking for projectors to be easier to use, quicker to set up and shut down," said James Chan, director, product marketing, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division. "Our new line meets and exceeds their expectations."

The XD435U-G is also compliant with federal trade guidelines for purchase by government agencies.

Availability, Warranty
The XD430U and SD430U are currently available; the XD435U-G will be available in August. All three projectors come with Mitsubishi's three-year limited warranty on parts and labor plus a 90-day limited warranty on the lamp. Like all Mitsubishi XGA projectors, the XD435U-G and XD430U are covered by the Express Replacement Assistance (ERA) Program, a nationwide comprehensive service that offers next-business-day replacement for down units under warranty.
