Press Release  |  Dec 13, 2005
IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 13, 2005 – Toshiba's Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today introduced the TDP-T9U projector, a high-performance, portable presentation solution for mobile professionals, educators, corporate customers and small-to-medium-sized businesses priced affordably at $1,099.

The TDP-T9U mobile projector features display capabilities and a lightweight design ideal for presenters who demand quality and portability without sacrificing performance. Its DLP™ (digital light processing) technology offers high-quality, detailed images on the screen. Combined with 2,000 ANSI lumens, a razor-sharp contrast ratio of 2000:1 and XGA 1024 x 768 resolution, the TDP-T9U provides enhanced clarity, brightness and color fidelity for a striking visual impact.

A robust yet compact multimedia projector, the TDP-T9U includes a wide range of capabilities and connectivity options designed to meet the demanding multimedia needs of today's presentations such as composite, S-video inputs and audio in/out capabilities. A monitor output connector allows users to view presentations from an external display, in addition to what is projected on the screen. This feature allows presenters to face their audience directly, rather than turning around to read slides as they appear on the screen.

"This projector is well-equipped and affordably priced for professionals who want an impressive portable projector with XGA resolution," said Alex Ijuin, assistant general manager for Toshiba DPD's Projector Business Unit of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. "It can also be used outside of a professional setting for those who want to enjoy sports, video games, DVD movies and other entertainment on the weekend."

Weighing only 4.4 pounds, users can easily transport the projector in between classrooms, offices, when traveling or home for the weekend. A sleek, new attractive chassis design complements the impressive capabilities of the TDP-T9U, including special features such as integrated data, video and audio capabilities, as well as a one-watt speaker for enhanced multimedia effects.

Ready to use out of the box, the TDP-T9U mobile projector incorporates user-friendly features, including a one-touch auto set up button in the fully loaded remote control for seamless, professional presentations. Additionally, the remote for the TDP-T9U is a true presentation remote control, featuring a built-in laser pointer to highlight and annotate key points and a mouse control button to control a mouse pointer for added convenience. To utilize the TDP-T9U, users simply plug the projector in and can begin making presentations.

With a whisper quiet fan that runs at approximately less than 31 dB (decibel adjusted) in low mode, the projector is designed so as not to distract the audience and to keep attention on the presentation.

The Toshiba TDP-T9U is available immediately through Toshiba's authorized distributors, dealers, VARs, retailers or mail-order outlets.
