New Dell Projector Delivers Long Lamp Life, Easy Operation from Virtually Anywhere

Round Rock, Texas, February 11, 2004
Dell today introduced an ultra-bright projector that is as easy for customers to set-up as it is to carry with them.

The Dell 3300MP Projector replaces the Dell 3200MP Projector, and delivers customers enhanced features for the same price of $1,699. The new projector's auto vertical keystone correction technology straightens images, eliminating the need to place the projector directly in front of the screen.

The 3300MP also ships with a full-function radio-frequency (RF) remote control, allowing the user to operate the projector from anywhere in the room. Manual and digital zoom capabilities help ensure that images can still be clearly viewed when presenting from a distance.

Other features include an Eco-Mode setting, which helps reduce noise output and increase lamp life up to 5,000 hours, and multiple connectivity options for PC and video inputs, including RS232 and HDTV. An optional 6-in-1 card reader is available to allow users to project digital pictures and presentations without a computer attached. The 3300MP also features an interactive backlit LCD display and a built-in two-watt speaker.

The 3300MP uses Digital Light Processing (DLP)TM DDR technology to produce crisp images from a device that weighs only 3.99 pounds. It projects native XGA resolution (1024 x 768), and will automatically adjust to accommodate the resolution of the source device. The new projector also features a brightness of 1,500 ANSI lumens (max)1, as well as a contrast ratio of 1,700:1.

The 3300MP is housed in a sturdy magnesium chassis and can be used on a desktop, mounted to a ceiling (with optional kit) or projected from behind a screen. Preset and user-programmable video and graphics modes help ensure color performance is optimal, regardless of the content being displayed.

The projector ships with cables (M1-DA to VGA, S-Video, component video, composite video, RCA audio, and mini pin to mini pin) and a fitted, drop-tested carrying case.

Initial availability will be in North America, with other regions to follow in the coming months. More information and specifications can be found at
