Robust, High-value Projector Lets Audience Hear the Presentation, Not the Projector

RVINE, Calif., December 19, 2006 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, known for award-winning, high-quality presentation and display products, has introduced its XL550U, an XGA resolution (1024 x 768 pixels), low noise projector that lets users hear a presentation and not the projector's fans. Combined with a low price tag, the XL550U is perfect for business, schools, small offices, home offices, and houses of worship.

"Mitsubishi is proud to present its latest super-quiet projector," said Frank Anzures, product manager for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Product Division. "It also has a robust set of features and a low cost that offers great value. Most importantly, it is the long-awaited successor of our renowned Silent Series projectors released over a year ago."

Mitsubishi's new XL550U uses three LCDs and provides 3100 ANSI lumens and a convenient side-loading lamp which makes lamp replacement quick, simple and efficient, saving both time and money. Users don't have to remove the whole projector from its mount; they just extract the old lamp from the side and plug in the new replacement. It also has a long-lamp life of 5000 hours in low mode, making replacements few and far between.

Network management is also available with the XL550's RJ45 connectivity for LAN asset management control of up to 200 projectors using the industry standard PJ-Link. Its RS232c connection makes it simple to integrate with third-party control systems, and an anti-theft security anchor is built into the back of the unit to deter any unapproved removal.

Pricing, Availability, Warranty
Mitsubishi's new XL550U is currently available for a suggested price of $4995 from its professional dealer network. The projector carries Mitsubishi's award-winning three-year limited warranty on parts and labor and its exclusive three-year Express Replacement Assistance program.
