TOSHIBA ANNOUNCES BRIGHT DLP(TM) PROJECTOR MADE FOR MOBILITYOffering 2,700 ANSI Lumens, TDP-T100U Also Includes Password Protection, One-Touch Auto Set-up, Digital Zoom, ‘Blackboard’ Function, and Instant Power Shutdown
"Because of its high brightness, this is the ideal projector for those presenting in unpredictable or less than perfect ambient light conditions such as a room with lots of windows," said Sam Malik, director of projector marketing, Toshiba Digital Products Division. "With its highly transportable form factor, the TDP-T100U comes packed with new convenience features as well to make any presentation a snap."
The TDP-T100U's feature enhancements that Toshiba is incorporating in its latest line of projectors include:
· One-touch auto setup on a fully-loaded presentation remote to ensure worry-free, professional presentations even in the most unforgiving environments;
· "Blackboard" function that allows a presenter to make a wall color adjustment when projecting on a non-screen surface for more attractive and readable presentations;
· Instant power shut down capability enables the projector to power off once disconnected from the outlet with no cool-down time required;
· Digital zoom function on the remote control allows the presenter to zoom in on a specific image presentation element such as spreadsheet numbers or other important details;
· Active monitor loop-through allows users to view their computer monitor even when the projector is off.
Weighing 6.6 pounds, the TDP-T100U also offers a 2000:1 contrast ratio, XGA 1024x768 native resolution to project text and images, and Toshiba's unique Natural Color Enhancer2, a color correction circuitry that makes the screen color look more natural with sharp and vivid images.
The TDP-T100U projector offers users an array of connectivity options, including composite video, component and S-video inputs, audio in and variable audio output capabilities. The special monitor-out capabilities allow users to display and view images on a monitor and screen simultaneously.
The TDP-T100U also includes automatic vertical keystone correction (plus or minus 30 degrees) that instantly projects a square image even when the projector is set up at a steep offset angle to the screen.
The Toshiba TDP-T100U is currently available through Toshiba's authorized distributors, VARs, retailers, mail-order outlets and www.ToshibaDirect.com.
