High-Performance Projectors Offer 2000 ANSI Lumens in 5.3-Pound Form Factor

IRVINE, Calif., November 29, 2005 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, maker of award-winning, high quality presentation and display products, has introduced its XD205 and SD205, two projectors that lead the market in the combination of brightness and portability. Mitsubishi's new laptop-sized projectors, which offer 2000 ANSI lumens in a 5.3-pound form factor, are bright enough for most offices and classrooms and light enough to easily carry from place to place.

These two new business and education market projectors use Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing™ technology for outstanding image quality, and are the newest low cost, high value projectors from the company known for its color reproduction excellence and low cost of ownership. At just 32 decibels, each projector is also extremely quiet so educators and presenters can keep their audiences' attention with less noise and distraction.

"We're leading the market with this great combination of features that are critical to business and education professionals," said Frank Anzures, product manager for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Product Division. "High brightness, low weight and low price points make these projectors perfect for any cost-conscious customer."

Mitsubishi's new XD205U offers XGA (1024 x 786 pixels) resolution and the SD205U provides SVGA (800 x 600 pixels) resolution. Each has a high contrast ratio of 2000:1 for exceptional color depth and clarity. Priced at $1995 and $1295 respectively, Mitsubishi's new projectors are priced for budget-minded presenters.

"Our dealers welcome these new additions to our product line, particularly at these price points," said James Chan, director, product marketing, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Product Division. "We continue to strive to offer options for every application and every budget."
