IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 6, 2004 - Toshiba's Digital Products Division (DPD) today announced the value-priced TLP-T70MU projector. Designed for business presenters and educators, Toshiba's new LCD-based projector delivers rich vibrant colors and crystal clear images, even in the brightest ambient light situations. Whether it's in a well-lit classroom or window-lined conference room, the high-performance TLP-T70MU delivers stellar presentations.

"Toshiba created the TLP-T70MU to provide customers with a higher level of image quality, portability and versatility at an attractive price," said Mark Pickard, director of product marketing for Toshiba DPD's Projector Business Unit. "The TLP-T70MU is ideal for today's on-the-go professionals because it complements Toshiba's full line of mobile products, and allows them to run an office-quality operation from their briefcase."

Featuring 2,000 ANSI lumens and XGA resolution, Toshiba's TLP-T70MU offers the clarity and power to overcome even the most unforgiving lighting situations. The new projector also includes LCD technology that delivers increased color saturation and accuracy to any presentation.

Additionally, Toshiba's TLP-T70MU projector includes multimedia capabilities such as composite and S-video inputs.

The TLP-T70MU also includes integrated audio functionality allowing users to add sound to their presentations, and a special output connector allowing presenters to view their content from a monitor. Especially important for educators, the monitor output capabilities allow instructors to keep eye contact with students at all times - no need to turn around to look at what's being projected on the screen.

Other features packed into the TLP-T70MU include one-touch digital keystone correction ensuring distortion-free images in a wide range of room sizes, and two remotes.
