New Widescreen WD570U Projector Announced From Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America

Press Release  |  May 17, 2011

Feature-Rich Projector Boasts High Brightness, High Contrast, Long Lamp Life

IRVINE, Calif., May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America adds the power-packed, wide-screen WXGA WD570U to its impressive lineup of projectors for schools, universities and businesses. Its super-bright 3500 lumen output ensures presentations are clearly seen without turning the lights off, and its 3000:1 contrast ratio produces sharp, vivid images, particularly for text and spreadsheets. And with an estimated lamp life of up to 6000-hours* (in low mode), the WD570U reduces operating and labor costs over the life of the projector.

"We're bringing another projector powerhouse to the education and business marketplace," said Wayne Kozuki, product manager, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America. "The wide-format WXGA resolution is perfect for a lot of new applications as well as spreadsheets and high-definition video."

The projector boasts LAN display, which allows up to four computers to be simultaneously connected to and displayed by the projector. The screen can then be divided into four quarters, with each computer screen shown at the same time in a two-up by two-across tiled display, a great set up for collaboration or problem solving.

The WD570U has audio standby, closed captioning and 3D-ready capabilities and is ultra quiet at 28 dBA. It uses Texas Instruments' DLP® Dark Chip3™ technology for sharp, vivid images shown with remarkably high native contrast.

Users don't even need a computer to connect to the projector; they can simply convert their presentations into .PTG files or into .JPEG images, save them on a USB flash drive, plug that flash drive in to the USB port for computer-free connection and present directly from the projector. Wi-Fi support is also available for quick connection and operation (optional wi-fi dongle sold separately).

A high-power 10-watt speaker with variable audio output is built in so even when the projector is in stand-by mode, the speaker can still be used, eliminating the cost and necessity of external amplifiers and speakers.

The WD570U also offers HDMI™ support as well as easy set-up options for multiple video inputs. They each have an RS232 serial connector and a built-in RJ45 input that offers plug-and-play connectivity with third-party remote management products such as those made by Crestron and AMX, as well as Mitsubishi's ProjectorView Global+.

The projector is currently available and comes with Mitsubishi's three-year limited warranty on parts and labor, and a one-year limited warranty on the lamp. Like all Mitsubishi data projectors, the WD570U is covered by the Express Replacement Assistance (ERA) Program, a comprehensive nationwide service that offers next business-day replacement** for down units that are under warranty. Optional extended warranty packages for one-year or two-year additional protection are also available to extend users' peace of mind.

"Our projectors continue to improve the quality of presentations," said James Chan, vice president, marketing, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America. "More importantly, they offer even more functionality and make presenting easier by enhancing the user experience, whether one is a member of the audience, or part of the presenting group. Add our commitment to the environment with a long lamp life, less than one-half watt power consumption in stand-by mode and auto power off, and we've got a real winning combination."
