Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America Continues Commitment to Low Cost of Projector Ownership

Press Release  |  Jun 9, 2004

XL5U ColorView(TM)/SL4S ColorView Models Increase Lamp Life up to 66 Percent

IRVINE, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- June 9, 2004-- Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, the award-winning, high-quality presentation and display products company, today introduced its XL5U ColorView(TM) and SL4S ColorView projectors at InfoComm 2004 in Atlanta. These projectors exemplify Mitsubishi's commitment to its customers to provide a low overall cost of ownership by offering 5,000 hours of low-mode lamp life, an increase of up to 66 percent over similar models.

"Our customers often ask us for ways to decrease costs," said James Chan, director, projector product marketing for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division. "A longer lamp life is a significant step toward that goal."

XL5U ColorView
The XL5U ColorView LCD projector provides XGA (1024 x 768) resolution and blasts 1700 lumens of power from the new long-life lamp, bright enough for the most demanding lighting environments. Compact and weighing only 5.4 pounds, this projector is easy to move and carry to any meeting, whether in-house or on the road.

SL4S ColorView
The SL4SU ColorView projector follows the path of Mitsubishi's SL4U ColorView, one of the company's most successful projectors. The new SVGA (800 x 600) resolution projector boasts 1700 lumens in a 5.4-pound package, along with ColorView, Mitsubishi's proprietary color accuracy algorithm.

"Combining a low estimated store price of $1,799 with a 5,000-hour lamp life makes the new SL4SU another excellent value projector," said Aki Ninomiya, vice president, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America Inc.'s Presentation Products Division.

Pricing, Availability, Warranty
Estimated market price of the new XL5U ColorView is $2,995 and, like the SL4SU ColorView, is currently available through authorized Mitsubishi dealers. Both projectors are protected by Mitsubishi's exclusive three-year limited warranty on parts and labor plus a 90-day limited warranty on the lamp. Like all Mitsubishi XGA ColorView projectors, the XL5U ColorView is covered by the Express Replacement Assistance (ERA) Program, an award-winning nationwide comprehensive service program provided for units under warranty that offers next business-day replacement for down units.
