Toshiba's Versatile TDP-T3 Digital Projector Has Revolutionary Modular Design For Use On The Road, In Classrooms & In Any Size Conference Room
LAS VEGAS, NV, November 12, 2001 (Comdex Booth L5630) In a move to provide businesses, schools and organizations with greater versatility and value, Toshiba today unveiled its new TDP-T3, a super-bright digital projector featuring a snap-on expansion module that converts it from a lightweight portable unit for use on the road to a conference room dynamo with the advanced connectivity needed to create exciting multimedia presentations using DVD players, HDTV, camcorders and gaming consoles.
The TDP-T3 is the ultimate projector for use as a shared presentation device within or between departments, noted Doug Freck, Vice President & General Manager, Toshiba Imaging Systems, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. With the added capabilities afforded by its expansion module the TPD-T3 is truly two digital projectors for the price of one.
The TDP offers a suite of cutting-edge features that make it an important new digital projection solution. These include: Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing technology for astonishing brightness and color clarity in a small footprint; variable brightness settings (2000 or 1600 lumens) to accommodate a variety of lighting environments; Native XGA (1024 x 768) resolution; 400:1 contrast ratio; a built-in 3-Watt audio system; wireless remote; and Faroudja technology for smooth, home-theater quality video with excellent color saturation.
GROUNDBREAKING LUMENS/WEIGHT RATIO
At only 5.7 pounds (without module) the TDP-T3 sports a smaller, lighter form factor than other XGA digital projectors delivering its blazing 2000-lumen brightness. In fact, the TDP-T3 is one of the first 2000-lumen projectors in the under six-pound weight class, making it a groundbreaking product in terms of brightness/size.
Toshiba, the world leader in portable technology solutions, engineered the compact TDP-T3 for the frequent traveler to take along in an overnight tote or notebook computer bag. Its dimensions (10.25 inches (W) x 11 inches (L) x 3.34 inches (H)) will also be appreciated in crowded conference rooms, offices and classrooms where space is at a premium and versatility is a must. For greater versatility, it offers front/rear and ceiling/desktop projection methods.
