MITSUBISHI ANNOUNCES NEW XL650 LCD PROJECTOR FOR BUSINESS AND UNIVERSITIES

Projector Boasts Robust Features, Versatility and High Brightness

IRVINE, Calif., December 19, 2006 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, known for award-winning, high-quality presentation and display products, has introduced its XL650U, its newest high brightness LCD projector designed for business and higher education. The XL650U blasts 4200 ANSI lumens for a bright, clear image in most high-ambient light settings such as bigger classrooms, auditoriums or boardrooms with a view.

"The XL650U brings important product characteristics like high brightness, network options and security features at a competitive price," said Frank Anzures, product manager for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Product Division. "It complements the stellar products in the Mitsubishi lineup."

Mitsubishi's new XL650U offers a lower cost of ownership through its new inorganic LCD panels that last longer, are more durable and provide a more color-consistent, even-toned image than previous generation LCD panels.

A side-loading lamp also makes lamp replacement quick, simple and efficient. Users don't have to remove the whole projector from its mount; they just extract the old lamp from the side and replace it, saving time and money. Network management is also simple and easy with the XL650's embedded ProjectorView™ and RJ45 connectivity for LAN asset management control of up to 200 projectors using the industry standard PJ-Link. Its RS232c connection makes it simple to integrate with third-party control systems, and an anti-theft security anchor is included to deter any unapproved removal.

Pricing, Availability, Warranty
The new XL650U is offered at a suggested price of $5995 and is currently available from Mitsubishi's professional dealer network. The projector carries Mitsubishi's award-winning three-year limited warranty on parts and labor and its exclusive three-year Express Replacement Assistance program.
