NEW DELL PROJECTOR DELIVERS BIG PERFORMANCE FOR THE HOME, OFFICE AT A SMALL PRICE

ROUND ROCK, Texas, Oct. 20, 2003-Customers can now display wall-sized images of everything from sporting events to presentations to video games and DVDs on a Dell 2200MP projector, introduced today for $899.

"We designed the 2200MP to meet the demands of customers that want a projector that can be easily used in the office and at home, as projectors become a more common component in the home digital entertainment center," said Scott O'Hare, vice-president and general manager, Dell Software and Peripherals. "For an attractive price, this projector provides an outstanding image and high-quality features."

The 2200MP projector uses the latest Digital Light Processing (DLP(tm)) DDR(1) projection technology to generate high resolution images at a 1700:1 contrast ratio with a maximum brightness of 1200 ANSI lumens(2) for crisp video and graphics. For true plug-and-play operation, an auto-sync feature adjusts the output resolution to match that of the input device up to SXGA+ (1400x1050 dpi).

At 4.7 lbs, the projector weighs less than many notebook computers but still provides advanced features such as motion-adaptive hardware de-interlacing - which digitally smoothes out pixilated images, a power-saving auto shutdown mode, and preset and user-programmable video modes for easy custom-configuration.

Accessories that ship standard with each 2200MP projector include a sturdy, hard foam carrying case; all video cables, including S-Video, composite video, component video/HDTV, audio, VGA and USB; a quick start guide; and a remote control. Also standard is a 1-year limited warranty(3) and Advance Exchange Service(4).

Initial availability will be in North America, with other countries to follow in the coming months. Additional information and specifications can be found at www.dell.com/projectors. Technical specifications of the 2200MP projector include:

(1) DLP DDR technology is based on a unique semiconductor known as the Digital Micromirror Device, or DMD. It was invented by Texas Instruments in 1987. The DMD is a fast, reflective digital light switch. It can be combined with image processing, memory, a light source and optics to form a DLP system capable of projecting large, bright, seamless, high-contrast color images with unmatched color fidelity and consistency. The Dell 2200MP incorporates the latest generation of DLP DDR technology.
