MITSUBISHI DIGITAL ELECTRONICS AMERICA ANNOUNCES NEW FOUR-POUND, HIGH-PERFORMANCE PROJECTOR WITH SECURITY FEATURES
IRVINE, Calif., March 30, 2004 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, maker of award-winning, high-quality presentation and display products, today introduced its new XD70U DLP™ projector, the latest offering for road warriors who need high performance in a secure, small and light form factor.
Combining a value price, password protection and cable slots in a four-pound package, Mitsubishi Digital's XD70U's added security features protect the projector from theft and make this lightweight projector an ideal choice for every business application. Offering 2000 ANSI lumens, the projector has a long-life lamp (3000 hours) that is bright and right for even the most demanding presentation environments. Its small size makes for easy portability, allowing professional-level presentations everywhere.
"Road warriors are on a budget, and they need a projector that is easy to use in all situations, whether in bright conference rooms, small board rooms, classrooms or hotel function rooms," said James Chan, director, projector product marketing for Mitsubishi Digital. "The XD70U's price, small, light form-factor and high brightness combine to make this projector perfect for those on the go."
Mitsubishi Digital's XD70U's brightness is powered by Texas Instruments' DLP™ chip. The projector provides a 2000:1 contrast ratio for bright and vivid colors, XGA (1024 x 768) pixel resolution, a manual focus and built-in short-focus zoom lens to show big, even in small rooms. The XD70U accepts computer, regular or S-video signals from DVD, VCR and even high-definition video or television signals for maximum flexibility. Its footprint is smaller than a regular letter-sized piece of paper, and is easily carried in its free soft carrying case.
Pricing, Availability, Warranty
Projected street price on Mitsubishi Digital's new XD70U projector is $2,995 and is currently available through authorized Mitsubishi reseller partners. It is covered by Mitsubishi's exclusive full three-year warranty on parts and labor plus a 90-day warranty on the lamp. And, like all Mitsubishi XGA projectors, the XD70U comes with the Express Replacement Assistance (ERA) Program, a nationwide comprehensive service provided for units under warranty that offers next business-day replacement for down units.
"Our product line continues to expand to meet the needs of our customers," said Aki Ninomiya, vice president, Mitsubishi Digital. "We're proud to offer our new XD70U projector to those who need the right blend of value, performance and mobility."
