the best it have a adaptive iris in the light engine that
have manual adjustements like max open or max close and in between
or you can select adaptive.

max open will give you 2500:1 to may 3000:1 and adaptiv bigger
10000:1 cr.

my guess max. close you will find arround 6000:1.

they use dc4 chips!

they have a dual lamp (uhp) design.

the big one have two 350w uhp lamps inside so the unit is very flexible.
it have also a notch filter that you can switch on and off.

so with the big 10000 lumen one you can go from good 1000 lumen
to 10000 lumen by dimm the lamp use one or 2 lamps and use the iris.

sad that they not use a xenon lamp.

i am sure we can read soon a press release.

Are you there Wolfgang ? With 5000 to 10,000 lumens it would seem like the adaptive iris could go higher on the on off. Still it sounds like a nice flexible device.

CHRISTIE UNVEILS NEW LINE OF 3-CHIP DLP® PROJECTORS

Sets New Performance Standards in the Industry

Las Vegas/INFOCOMM 2008 – (June 18, 2008) – Christie is raising the bar on standard features and performance with a diverse new line of projection products that sets a new benchmark for reliability, versatility and low cost of ownership in the high-end Pro AV projector class. The Christie M Series is a flexible and efficient family of 3-chip DLP® projectors built on a dual-lamp, mercury platform with extreme feature-rich functionality. Providing a total of six new models, the projectors range from 5,000 ANSI lumens (dual lamp, 200W) to 9,500 ANSI lumens (dual lamp, 350W) and include two resolutions – SX+ (1400 x 1050) and HD (1920 x 1080).

“We listened to our customers and worked hard to develop a product that not only meets the demands of today’s sophisticated Pro AV applications, but also raises the bar in the marketplace,” notes George Tsintzouras, senior product manager, Business Products, Christie.

At the highest brightness level (9,500 ANSI lumens), the projector draws a maximum power of 1320W, making this Series the brightest and most efficient on the market in its class. At only 55lbs, they are also lighter and more affordable to operate and maintain with dual lamps, energy-saving feature settings, and a filter-free, dust-sealed engine design. With the reliability to operate in single lamp mode for mission critical operation, the show can go on with the ability to replace a lamp while the projector is powered on and in use.

This Series also provides an expanded suite of high-quality lenses that includes two new options – a short zoom (1.25-1.6:1 SX+ / 1.16-1.49:1 HD) and a long zoom (7.5-11.2:1 SX+ / 6.9-10.4:1 HD) – all with true Intelligent Lens System (ILS)™ capabilities. The ILS automatically recognizes and calibrates a lens when it is installed. The encoder-based system ensures repeatable recall of all lens offset, zoom and focus positions.

“We’re thrilled to offer an unprecedented number of standard features in this Series with no additional hardware or software required. In addition to the new Intelligent Lens System, we’ve added embedded warp capabilities, optical color space expansion, an easy-to-use web interface, high-end electronics, dynamic iris, multi-window processing, automatic shut-off, and more,” adds Tsintzouras. “The feedback from our dealers has been tremendously positive – it’s exciting to hear that we’ve hit the mark in terms of what they want.”

“Today’s announcement will change the landscape of the Pro AV projection market,” comments Gary Fuller, vice president of Christie’s Business Products division.
“Christie’s development of this latest platform supports our strategic plan to create best-in-class solutions for our partners, so they can address a wide range of customer needs. The Christie M Series represents a giant leap in the evolution of this class of 3-chip DLP projection products and we’re confident it will bring great value for our Pro AV dealers and their customers.”

The Christie M Series provides solutions for the entire Pro AV market from fixed installations to rental/staging. It continues Christie’s history of innovation and quality designs, which include the first high brightness 3-chip DLP HD projectors, the smallest 3-chip DLP, and the brightest 3-chip DLP HD projectors in the marketplace.

Christie’s latest M Series include: the Christie DS+6K-M at 5,000 ANSI lumens; the Christie HD6K-M at 5,100 ANSI; the Christie DS+10K-M at 9,300 ANSI; the Christie HD10K-M at 9,500 ANSI; and two Christie Roadster models with stacking and rigging for road worthiness.

All HD models in this series come standard with a motorized Yellow Notch Filter for improved reproduction of skin tones, richer color depth, and more natural looking images for video display.

Stop by Christie’s InfoComm booth # N5427, June 18 – 20, 2008 to meet George Tsintzouras and see a demonstration of this class-leading Series.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN CHRISTIE’S 24/7 CONTROL ROOM
DISPLAY SOLUTIONS

Las Vegas/INFOCOMM 2008 – (June 18, 2008) – Christie announces exciting new developments in the company’s line of 24/7 control room display systems. At this year’s InfoComm exhibition, Christie is unveiling for the first time new dual lamp 3-chip DLP® high performance rear screen projectors – the Christie DLV1400-DL and Christie DLV1920-DL. In addition, the company has expanded the 1-chip DLP series of RPMX and RPMSP rear screen projectors to include brighter 132W versions – the Christie RPMX-D132U and Christie RPMSP-D132U.

Alongside these latest models, Christie is also introducing new shallow depth 50” and 67” cubes and pedestals, new display screens including cross-prism technology, new DVI and HD expansion options for the Christie TVC-1210 display wall controller, and an expanded set of lenses including an ultra-low distortion 1.2:1 tiling lens exclusive to Christie. Jim Gavloski, director of product management for control room & videowall solutions at Christie comments, “Our customers now have the broadest range of value-add solutions to incorporate into their own customized display system designs, or when upgrading existing wall structures.”

The new Christie DLV1400-DL and Christie DLV1920-DL 3-chip DLP models feature SXGA+ and native HD resolution respectively for high brightness, large screen displays. Featuring two, 200W high pressure lamps at 3,000 hours operation (eco mode), the projectors run on a single lamp and automatically switch to the spare lamp when degeneration of brightness or failure is detected. Regular service such as lamp replacement can be done while the projector is on and running, for failsafe operation. The long life and lower cost lamps offer improved cost of ownership over Christie’s premium Xenon-based 3-chip DLP rear screen engines, adding more choice and flexibility for customers.

Gavloski adds, “In recent years, dual lamp systems have become a standard requirement for most control room display systems. We’re pleased to now offer this unique dual lamp option in our high performance 3-chip DLP projector series. In the 1-chip category, our new Christie RPMX-D132U and Christie RPMSP-D132U feature a 20% improvement in brightness over our current 120W models, while still maintaining 10,000 hours lamp life. They also feature expanded automatic color and brightness management features which enable continuous color monitoring and correction, and brightness control to maintain uniformity across the entire display wall.”

Christie’s single-chip DLP dual lamp rear screen projectors come with the widest range of tiling lenses in the industry to match any display wall requirement. “This value-add offering has translated to huge cost savings for our customers looking to upgrade with the latest high quality projection systems while leaving their wall structure intact,” says Gavloski.

For installations where space is a premium, Christie has new shallow cubes and pedestals. The 50” cube is now only 23” deep and the 67” only 30” deep. As a further improvement, the new cubes have a mirror-mount design which provides greater flexibility and ease to perform fine mirror adjustments. Along with the new shallow-depth cubes comes a new set of optical screen choices with cross-prism and beaded technology designed to identically match the focal characteristics of the RPMX and RPMSP 1-chip DLP series.

Additionally, the Christie TVC-1210 display wall controller is now available with new DVI and HD expansion options. The new DVI/RGB input module accepts both analog and digital inputs for display anywhere on the wall. The new card, combined with the latest version of software allows up to 64 DVI or RGB inputs for simultaneous display. Multiple HD video input modules may be installed to allow up to 8 HD or 16 SD videos per screen.
Stop by Christie’s InfoComm booth # N5427, June 18 – 20, 2008 to meet Jim Gavloski and see our latest control room offerings.

DIGITAL PROJECTION ANNOUNCES MAJOR ADVANCES IN NEW TITAN PRO SERIES II MODELS

KENNESAW, GA (June 18, 2008) -
Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high performance projection systems, announced five new products based on its TITAN Professional Series II platform: The TITAN SX+ 600M, TITAN 1080p-600M, TITAN sx+ 700, TITAN 1080p-700 and the TITAN 1080p Ultra Contrast.
The new TITAN 600M products offer the rugged construction, high performance and energy efficiency shared by all TITAN projectors, but fill an important price and performance niche between the company’s existing 500 and 600 models. The TITAN 500 and 600 products have been solid, high brightness performers in the HD (720p), SX+ and 1080p native resolution platforms. With the addition of the new “M” sx+ and 1080p displays, DP customers now have an extensive suite of projectors from which they can select the perfect solution to meet their performance and cost objectives.

The table below illustrates where the new models fit into the existing line-up:


Product
Lumens/Contrast

TITAN sx+ 500

6000 Lumens/2000:1 Contrast

NEW! TITAN sx+ 600M
8500 Lumens/2000:1 Contrast

NEW! TITAN sx+ 700
11000 Lumens/2000:1 Contrast

TITAN 1080p Ultra Contrast
5000 Lumens/5000:1 Contrast

TITAN 1080p-500

6000 Lumens/2000:1 Contrast



NEW! TITAN 1080p-600M
8000 Lumens/2000:1 Contrast



NEW! TITAN 1080p-700
10000 Lumens/2000:1 Contrast

Also new to the TITAN line-up are the TITAN sx+ 700 and 1080p-700. As an evolution of the TITAN 600’s, the 700 series offers even more technological advances, with an upgrade to new, longer life HID lamps, improved contrast in excess of 2000:1, a newly designed optional Rapid Rig frame with easy to adjust pitch, roll and yaw adjustments, HDCP compliance and standard HD-SDI input connectivity. Augmenting the list of new 700 series enhancements is the extreme mechanical flexibility the platform offers when operated in single lamp mode. Depending on which lamp is selected, 700 series projectors can be rotated, either horizontally or vertically, to project from nearly any angle. This mechanical orientation capability supports portrait displays, tight rear projection environments, multi head visualization / simulation systems, unique staged sets and virtually any application where extreme projector orientation is required.

Concurrent with infoComm ’08, the TITAN sx+ 700 and 1080p-700 will take the place of the TITAN sx+ and 1080p 600 models. As they share the same footprint, lenses, control protocol and price as the TITAN 600 series projectors, the 700’s are seamless replacements for systems currently being specified for the 600 models.
The final new product in the expanded TITAN lineup is the TITAN 1080p Ultra Contrast. Based on the new TITAN 700 chassis, this 1080p native resolution display has received major enhancements to its optical system in order to maximize contrast and black level performance. Specifically, the TITAN 1080p Ultra Contrast delivers 5,000 lumens and an impressive contrast ratio in excess of 5000:1. For customers with visualization, simulation, medical, scientific or exploration applications, or for customers who simply have theatrically dark venues and want superb dynamic range, the TITAN 1080p Ultra Contrast delivers exemplary dark area detail and saturated, vivid colors.

In addition to the major enhancements announced above, each of the new TITAN models offers the class-leading cost of ownership benefits that position the entire TITAN product line ahead of industry standards. By incorporating DP’s exclusive CoolTek™ engineering technologies, each TITAN projector produces maximum lumens while consuming less wattage than competing products. This “Minimum Wattage In, Maximum Lumens Out” principle ensures both a longer life span for key components and lamps, as well as the lowest operational cost.

Experience the entire line of powerful and efficient TITAN displays at Digital Projection’s infoComm booth, #N6340.

DLP® Products Demonstrates Innovation Leadership with New Prototypes Including Lamp-Free Projector DLP unveils the world’s first 3-D Front Projector and shows the first DLP Pico chipset product

Las Vegas – June 18, 2008: Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE:
TXN) today at InfoComm DLP® Products introduced the industry’s first home theater lamp-free projector that utilizes a PhlatLight™ LED light source and a BrilliantColor™ chipset. This technology demo delivers a superior 1080p picture for which DLP technology is known, while eliminating maintenance costs such as lamp replacements and filter changes required by some competing projector products.  Multiple DLP customers have plans to develop DLP lamp-free LED-based projectors, including Optoma, with units expected to ship in late 2008. Similar to the deployment of DLP Product’s now popular BrilliantColor technology, the solid-state, lamp-free innovation will first be incorporated into home theater units and proliferate through corporate and education product lines thereafter.

DLP also introduced the first 3-D front projector with Norwegian manufacturer, projectiondesign, and the brand new pico-projector stand-alone product with Optoma. The 3-D portable high-resolution active stereoscopic single-chip projector is designed for the demanding visualization, simulation and entertainment environments in applications that have not been able to achieve this level of performance in the past, while the pico product uses a pioneering DLP Pico™ chipset for mobile applications.

Benefits of Lamp-free
Due to the inherent switching speed of the DLP chip and advancements in LEDs from Luminus, a leader in LED manufacturing, consumers will benefit from the increased picture quality, reliability and value found in this new projector category.

The reflective nature of the mirrors on the DLP chip allow more light to reach the screen resulting in a 50% increase in color gamut range producing more than 200 trillion colors and a contrast ratio in excess of 500,000:1.

The proprietary combination of LED illumination, coupled with DLP technology elevates picture quality to a new level while eliminating the traditional projection lamp.

In addition to the expanded color and contrast performance, the illumination system has an incredibly long life and offers up to 30% lower power usage and, most significantly, hundreds of dollars in savings from lamp purchases.

Due to the sealed DLP optics, DLP projectors are inherently prepared to withstand dusty environments and unlike projectors based on other technologies; do not require a filter to protect the optics. Most DLP projectors are filter-free. This important value attribute will remain true with new lamp-free DLP projectors, eliminating potential costly filter cleaning and replacements required by other technologies.

DLP is leveraging strengths from its other leading product lines for the new lamp-free projectors. Since 2006, lamp-free DLP HDTVs with LED-based illumination systems have been available from Samsung. To date, nearly 150,000 of these units have shipped.

DLP Products is featuring other market leading innovations at InfoComm booth #C909, Central Hall, including:

World’s first DLP 3-D Front Projector Product

The F10 AS3D is designed for the demanding scientific visualisation, simulation and entertainment environments. A full 120 Hz refresh rate enables flicker-free 3-D image. The F10 AS3D features a resolution of 1,400 x 1,050 pixels, and it is fully compatible with 1080p inputs.  It is also compatible with both IR transmitted and DLP® Link 3-D shutter glasses.  The F10 AS3D can be found on the projectiondesign booth, N5541 at InfoComm.

World’s first DLP Pico-Projector Product

Optoma has announced plans to build a miniature stand-alone projector using the DLP Pico™ chipset. Product is expected to be available in limited distribution in Europe and Asia in late 2008 with a worldwide launch planned for 2009. There will be a demo at the DLP booth of this hand-held projector displaying composite video from a mobile business device.

“DLP Products has a proven legacy of “firsts” in the market and the projectors being demonstrated this year are examples of that commitment to innovation and commitment to our customers,” said Lars Yoder, vice president and business manager, TI’s DLP Front Projection Business Unit. “DLP Products is proud to enable our customers, who are the leading projector manufacturers globally, to be the best.”

Texas Instruments
DLP® Products
Praised by the Industry for Superior Reliability
Lower
cost of ownership for projectors powered by DLP®
Las Vegas
– June 18, 2008: Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE: TXN) and its international
customer base today at InfoComm 2008 celebrate the superior reliability
of products built upon the DLP chip.  The benefits to DLP consumers
are inherent in the innovation of its chip technology that cannot be
replicated by competitors. 

A recent test conducted by
independent testing organization Intertek on data projectors supports
the advantages of DLP technology in front projection. The findings revealed
that all LCD projectors tested, including Epson’s newest Dream Seven
panel projectors, showed image “burn-in” when a corporate logo was
displayed in the same place in a series of presentation materials in
a typical business usage scenario. The testing showed that text and
images can leave a ghosting or “burn-in” effect following as little
as two hours of on-time operation. The effect may take time to dissipate.
The recent testing confirms
DLP’s position as an industry market leader in projector reliability. 
Coupled with the many filter-free DLP models available, total cost of
ownership for DLP projectors is often dramatically lower than other
projector technologies. 

“While technology should
enhance learning in schools, ongoing maintenance and related lost user
productivity pose hidden costs to reaching those goals,” said Rich
Kaestner, Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) TCO/VOI Project Director.
“Education administrators require the lowest total cost of ownership,
reviewing ongoing lifecycle costs when looking at projectors.”
The DLP front projection chipset
is based on the same technology that powers the largest and brightest
projectors found in movie theatres and large venues worldwide as well
as the tiny Pico-projector made for mobile applications.
“Our customers expect a chip
that will perform at the same level for the life of the unit, and DLP
is proving to be the only option that meets these end user demands,”
said Lars Yoder, vice president and business manager, TI’s DLP Front
Projection Business Unit. “The stability of the DLP chip has helped
multiple manufacturers to increase sales, elevate their brand and become
leaders in the space.”

The DLP chip has been praised by the industry for its bullet-proof reliability. The American Society
of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) recently gave TI’s DLP chip – the
DMD –the Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark award. The designation
indicates a significant step forward in the evolution of mechanical
engineering and is the best-known example of its kind. The unwavering
performance and reliability of the microscopic array of digital micromirrors
that are individually controlled was the key source of praise from ASME.

and DLP products please visit www.dlp.com or booth #C909, Central Hall
at InfoComm.

Optoma Introduces World’s First Pico Handheld Projector
Based on Texas Instruments’ DLP Pico® Chipset, Features Sleek Design and
Extreme Portability

LAS VEGAS, NV (June 18, 2008) – Optoma, a leading manufacturer of award-winning digital projection and display devices, introduces the first Pico projector based on the DLP Pico chipset. Smaller than most smart phones, this new micro-portable projector fits in your palm and is the ideal companion to ultra-portable media devices such as iPods®, PDA’s, smart phones and digital cameras.

When connected to an ultra-mobile device, the four-ounce Optoma Pico Projector allows users to share photos and videos, and enjoy a far better visual experience with an image that is up to 100 times larger than the small screen of the source device.

“The Pico Projector is the next step in sharing visual media for today’s ultra-mobile consumers. Fitting in your shirt pocket, the Pico Projector can display pictures, videos or any content from a mobile media player or smart phone” says Jon Grodem, director of Product Management for Optoma. “Optoma’s Pico breaks free from the limitations of the 2 or 3 inch displays found on today’s mobile devices. This category defining projector creates a new benchmark for sharing content-on-the-go.”

Optoma’s Pico Projector utilizes the latest LED technology resulting in a colorful and vivid image. The small and powerful unit is based upon DLP technology assuring the highest possible contrast.

“The handheld Pico projector represents the latest advancement in the mobile device display industry. We view the Pico projector as a completely new and exciting market – one which dramatically expands the reach and potential of projection products into new end user applications,” says Dr. William Coggshall, founder and president of Pacific Media Associates.

The product will be first shown at Texas Instrument’s InfoComm 2008 booth C909 and will be available in limited distribution in Europe and Asia in late 2008, with a worldwide launch in 2009.

DisplayLink Technology Powers New InFocus Multimedia Projectors

First USB-connected projectors make presentation setup a snap

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 11, 2008 – Transforming the way people use and enjoy multimedia projectors, InFocus Corporation (NASDAQ: INFS) has developed two new projector series that incorporate DisplayLink’s USB graphics connection technology.

The next-generation projection systems – the InFocus® IN3100 series and IN1100 series – are the first multimedia projectors to embed DisplayLink innovations, which allow people to easily project videos, PowerPoints and pictures with the simple snap of a USB connection.

Convenient “connect and display” capabilities ensure that educators, financial analysts, advertisers, sales staff and other business professionals can stop worrying about laptop-to-projector setup issues and start their meetings and presentations stress-free. The technology makes life simpler and more productive for both professionals and commercial AV experts.

“Together, we’ve tapped the power of USB to simplify the digital projection experience – delivering both flawless image transmission and practically instant connection,” said Hamid Farzaneh, DisplayLink president and CEO. “The new InFocus projectors are an exceptional addition to the lineup of monitors, docks and USB graphics adapters that use our connection technology too.”

“By combining InFocus’s expertise in projection with DisplayLink’s skills in USB-connectivity, we’ve developed industry-leading products that make projection more user-friendly,” said Bob O’Malley, InFocus CEO. “Our intent is to eliminate the frustration users associate with projector set-up.”

All of the new projector models include DisplayLink’s Auto Install feature, which automatically puts the right software directly onto laptops when they are plugged into the projector. No fiddling with “function keys” is ever required to make a presentation work properly. And, with the multi-display capabilities of DisplayLink’s technology, people can operate multiple projectors and show multiple presentations from just a single USB connection and single computer – bringing a whole new level of productivity and simplicity to busy multimedia professionals.

In addition to easy USB connectivity, the InFocus IN3100 series of multimedia projectors provides the high performance of 3000 to 3500 lumens with a 2000:1 contrast ratio and high resolution. The InFocus IN1100 series of digital projectors provides 2000 Max ANSI lumens with an 1800:1 contrast ratio for bright, crisp images. Weighing just 2.7 pounds, the IN1100 series is designed for portability and mobility.

The InFocus IN3100 series starts at $1,499 and is available June 30. Starting at $1,099, the IN1100 series will be available Aug. 8. Both products will be sold through systems integrators, resellers and other channel partners.

MITSUBISHI
DIGITAL ELECTRONICS AMERICA’S NEW
HC5500 1080p PROJECTOR BRINGS ADVANCED FEATURES
TO COST-CONSCIOUS CONSUMERS  

IRVINE, Calif.,
June 18, 2008 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America’s Presentation
Products Division, known for award-winning, high-quality, high-definition
presentation and display products, is bringing higher-grade features
to its newest 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution home theater projector,
the HC5500.  This new projector replaces Mitsubishi’s wildly
successful HC4900, upgrading features for the same manufacturer’s
suggested price of $2495.

“Our new HC5500 is very similar
to our HC6000, but we’re targeting it to the same price point as our
old HC4900,” said Wayne Kozuki, product manager, Mitsubishi Digital
Electronics America’s Presentation Products Division.

Mitsubishi’s HC5500 is designed
with inorganic LCD panels that are more durable and that provide a more
consistent, evenly toned color image than previous generation LCD panels. 
With a newly developed LCD panel cooling duct, the HC5500 is designed
to be one of the quietest projectors in the world at 19 dBa, so you
can focus on the movie instead of a distracting hum of the fan.   

With the HC5500 Mitsubishi
has also included an improved automatic iris function for quicker black-to-light
image shift and has increased the contrast ratio to 10,000:1. 
This combination allows for dynamic, smooth transitions between light
and dark and sharper overall details in dark areas, even in fast-action
spaceship scenes or classic film noir.

Most importantly, Mitsubishi
incorporates the Emmy® award-winning HQV (Hollywood Quality Video)
high-performance video processor inside this entry level 1080p projector. 
The HC5500 comes with the Reon-VX video processing chip often found
in more expensive high-end devices and offers advanced noise reduction
and reduced chroma up-sampling for superior video performance.

Reon-VX’s HQV processing
delivers sharp, detailed HD images by using features such as true 1080i-to-1080p
HD deinterlacing and a sophisticated multidirectional diagonal filter
that helps ensure video is free from jagged edges.  HQV also makes
standard definition material approach HD quality by employing advanced
scaling, per-pixel detail enhancement and noise reduction technology
to remove noise and artifacts caused by compression.

The projector’s 3LCD technology
delivers unbelievable color, amazing detail and road-tested reliability.
Using an advanced three-panel design, Mitsubishi’s HC5500 produces
both rich and vibrant colors with extraordinary details for outstanding
picture quality.

With up to 5000 hours of lamp-life
(in low mode), HC5500 owners won’t have to change lamps often, but
when it’s necessary the new projector design makes replacement quick
and easy.

Users simply switch lamps through an easily accessed
lamp housing without taking the mounting structure apart or physically
handling the projector.

“Mitsubishi continues to lead the market with advanced features and functions at unprecedented
price points,” said James Chan, director, product marketing, Mitsubishi
Digital Electronics America’s Presentation Products Division. 
“We’re excited to offer so many advanced features for a suggested
price under $2500.”

Pricing, Availability and Warranty
The suggested retail price
of Mitsubishi’s new HC5500 is $2,495 and will be available in June
through authorized Mitsubishi dealers and select online resellers. The
projector comes with Mitsubishi’s two-year limited warranty on parts
and labor plus a one-year limited warranty on the lamp.

MITSUBISHI
DIGITAL ELECTRONICS AMERICA ANNOUNCES
ECONOMICAL HC1600 HOME THEATER PROJECTOR  

New 720p
Projector Replaces Award-Winning HC1500

IRVINE, Calif.,
June 18, 2008 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America’s Presentation
Products Division, known for award-winning, high-quality, high-definition
presentation and display products, today announced its HC1600 HD home
theater projector designed for budget-minded video enthusiasts or home
theater newbies.

At 1700 lumens, the HC1600
is brighter than its best-selling award-winning predecessor, fits more
viewing environments and at a suggested retail price of only $999, it
fits smaller budgets as well.  Mitsubishi’s HC1600 makes a dynamic
large screen HD home theater experience truly affordable, allowing more
people to step up from fixed-size televisions to portable, flexible
home entertainment in high definition.

“We continue to lead in home
theater projection, especially in terms of a value proposition,” said
Wayne Kozuki, product marketing manager, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics
America’s Presentation Products Division.  “It’s always exciting
to bring such high-end entertainment experiences to a level where almost
everybody can easily enjoy them at home or on the road.”

Using Texas Instruments’
latest DLP® chip, the DDP3020 Digital Light Processing®
TrueVision™ Image processing with BrilliantColor™, Mitsubishi’s
HC1600 HD projector blasts a bright 1700 lumens and provides an outstanding
2500:1 contrast ratio for high action and detailed video impact, even
with the lights on.  The combination provides advanced capabilities
that greatly enhance white segment processing and secondary color boost
to improve mid-tone brightness.

BrilliantColor processing technology
uses a patented color-processing algorithm and system-level enhancements
for more brightness and truer lifelike colors.  As a result, the
HC1600 treats viewers to rich and vivid 720p high-definition images. 

Mitsubishi’s HC1600 is affordable
from the point of purchase and offers an exceptionally low cost of ownership
with an estimated 3000-hour lamp life in low lamp-life conservation
mode.  It’s also designed with an advanced filter-free construction
that makes the projector’s optics resistant to dust, dirt and other
micro particles within the its light path. Because there’s no filter,
periodic maintenance is greatly reduced, making the projector more economical
over time, and allowing users more time to enjoy their home theater.
Furthermore, the tedious task of cleaning and replacing a filter is
eliminated, saving both time and money.

Subdued scenes are easy to
hear with the HC1600’s quiet 25-decibel level engine, and its HDMI™
and DVI™ inputs offer true high-definition connectivity.  Digital
keystone correction makes set-up easy, efficient and more flexible in
different room configurations.

“Mitsubishi is committed
to increasing value in our home theater and presentation projectors,”
said James Chan, director, product marketing, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics
America’s Presentation Products Division.  “We offer a wide
selection designed to meet home theater newbies as well as enthusiasts
who want the best that their budget can afford, with no compromise.” 


Pricing, Availability, Warranty
The suggested retail price
of Mitsubishi’s HC1600 is $999; the projector will be available in
August 2008 through popular online resellers, selected retail outlets
and authorized Mitsubishi dealers. The
projector comes with Mitsubishi’s one-year limited warranty on parts
and labor plus a one-year limited warranty on the lamp.

DITIAL ELECTRONICS AMERICA DEBUTS 140” LED RESOLIA
AT INFOCOMM

Indoor Electronic
Billboard for Diverse Signage Applications Now
for $399,000 In Booth #3103 at InfoComm in Las Vegas

IRVINE, Calif.,
June 18, 2008 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America’s Presentation
Products Division, known for award-winning, high-quality presentation
and display products, is exhibiting its Resolia™ LED big-screen monitor
for the first time at InfoComm in Las Vegas. Mitsubishi’s Resolia
monitor is designed for indoor signage applications such as billboard
advertising or informational displays in malls, airports, sports arenas,
casinos, entertainment stages and other public venues.

“We’ve received a great
response to our Resolia LED big-screen, and we’re excited to show
it to our InfoComm audience,” said James Chan, director of marketing,
Mitsubishi’s Presentation Products Division. “Systems integrators
will see its new plug and play design makes installation easier and
more efficient than custom-sized LED screens that can cost up to three
times more and are quite service intensive.”

Unlike similar screens which
are tediously custom-built in-house, deconstructed for shipping and
reconstructed tile-by-tile, module-by-module on site, Resolia is the
only 140” LED screen with a pre-packaged design that is quick to install
and simple to set-up. It is shipped in one piece but can also be broken
down into a two-piece configuration for easier transport in tight spaces.
The plug-and-play design eliminates complicated integration and maintenance
which saves time and money.
For its size, it also has some
of the most versatile mounting options available; its thin body with
front and bottom hardware allows the panel to be installed flat or inclined
from walls, or even hung from the ceiling. Resolia also boasts
larger viewing angles: 150 degrees horizontal and 120 degrees vertical,
so more people above, below or to the side can read images clearly and
easily.
Mitsubishi’s Resolia accepts
an array of input computer or video signals including HD-SDI for up
to 1080p high-definition imaging or SD-SDI for standard imaging signals.
It comes with a controller that can accept and display one video or
one computer-generated screen display, or customers have the option
of a digital screen controller that allows up to four input sources.
A sophisticated and easy graphic user interface (GUI) comes with the
upgraded controller that lets users simply configure source content
for a shared display of up to four simultaneous images, side-by-side
images, or picture-in-picture style.
Resolia’s advanced pixels
are a 3-in-1 design: Each pixel can turn red, blue, green or white individually,
and the pixel pitch is a tight 4.0mm. This combination allows
for brighter, more vivid colors, and sharper images overall.


Pricing,
Availability, Warranty
Now in the market for just
$399,000, Mitsubishi’s Resolia’s 140” LED screen is currently
available through authorized systems integrators. Resolia comes with
Mitsubishi’s one-year limited warranty on parts and labor.

DITIGAL ELECTRONICS AMERICA ANNOUNCES
NEW SHORT-THROW XD500U-ST PROJECTOR 

Designed
for Projection Environments with Limited Real Estate 
 
IRVINE, Calif.,
June 18, 2008 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America’s Presentation
Products Division, known for its award-winning, high-quality presentation
and display products, has announced its new XD500U-ST projector designed
for educators and presenters with limited space.   

Mitsubishi’s powerful new
XGA-resolution (1024 x 768 pixels) short-throw projector can be placed
close to a screen or white board and achieve a relatively large picture. 
For example, the projector can display a 60-inch diagonal image when
only 33-inches away, so presenters do not create distracting shadows
while addressing their audience. 
“With our new XD500U-ST projector,
instructors can focus on teaching instead of staying away from the bright
projection light,” said Wayne Kozuki, product manager for Mitsubishi
Digital Electronics America’s Presentation Products Division. 
“And students aren’t distracted by images splashed across a teacher’s
body or by shadows on the whiteboard or screen.” 


The XD500U-ST is built with
an advance video scaler that can smoothly display a compressed WXGA
(1280 x 800) image despite having a native resolution of XGA. 
This compression and resolution feature allows users to get the best
of both worlds, giving full support to 4:3 computers while showing newer,
wide-screen images easily and accurately. 
The XD500U-ST uses Texas Instruments’
new DDP 2230 DMD chip with DLP® technology and the latest version of
BrilliantColor™ for superior color performance.  Blasting 2000

SHARP ANNOUNCES
U.S. AVAILABILITY OF 108-INCH LCD MONITOR FOR COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS  

Dramatic expansion
in the range of LCD screen class sizes
LAS VEGAS, June 18, 2008
– Sharp, a worldwide leader in flat-panel Liquid Crystal Display
(LCD) technology, announces the September U.S. availability of the world’s
largest commercially available LCD Monitor.  Model LB-1085, a 108-inch
class (107.5 inches Diagonal, 52.9-inches high by 93.9-inches wide) Full
HD 1080p LCD Monitor, features an Advanced Super View LCD panel that
is manufactured at Sharp’s Kameyama Plant No. 2, the first plant in
the world to use 8th generation glass substrates.  

With this development, Sharp has demonstrated that it is now possible
to produce LCDs in all screen size classes ranging from 19-inch class
(18-61/64” Diagonal) to super-large sizes.
      The
LB-1085 features 6.21 million
pixels (1,920 x 1,080 x RGB) and a TFT (thin-film transistor) active-matrix
drive system.  It offers an
array of inputs, including HDMI™ and DVI-I connectors, for greater
connectivity with a wide variety of equipment and devices.  A fan-less
design minimizes noise and intake of dust from outside air to further
improve its level of technical sophistication as a commercial display. 
      Since
developing the world’s first 14-inch color TFT LCD TV in 1988, Sharp
has consistently led the industry with larger screen sizes, introducing
the first 45-inch class model in 2004 and the first 65-inch class (64-17/32”
Diagonal) model.  In addition to leading the movement toward larger
screen sizes, Sharp has met the demand for superior image quality by
achieving such “firsts” as a resolution that is four times higher
than that of current HD (4096 x 2160), the world’s highest contrast
ratio (1,000,000:1) and the ultimate in fast-motion image processing
with 120 Hz frame rate conversion and an incredible pixel response time
of 4ms.
      Sharp
is working to further the evolution of LCD technology based on the success
of developing the LB-1085, and will continue, as a leading manufacturer
of LCD TVs and Monitors, to develop state-of-the-art products.

SHARP INTRODUCES
HIGH PERFORMANCE DLP® PROJECTORS
WITH BRILLIANTCOLOR™ TECHNOLOGY AT INFOCOMM 

Vibrant color reproduction,
exceptional compatibility and reliability make PG-F317X,
PG-F312X, PG-F262X
and PG-F212X ideal for corporate and educational applications 

 
LAS VEGAS, June 18, 2008 – At
InfoComm 2008, Sharp is expanding its projector suite with the introduction
of its newest DLP® projectors with BrilliantColor™ Technology. 
Ideal for classrooms and boardrooms, the new Sharp DLP Projectors (PG-F317X,
PG-F312X,
PG-F262X and PG-F212X) provide enhanced
colors and enriched imaging that bring presentations to life and accommodate
a wide array of video and audio inputs for an extremely versatile presentation
experience.
      “Even
the best presentation can lose some of its effect if the images aren’t
of the highest quality,” said Bruce Pollack, associate director of
marketing, Professional Display Division, Sharp Imaging and Information
Company of America.  “Our new DLP projectors with BrilliantColor
Technology capitalize on our extensive experience in the projector market,
accommodate the newest standards, and even provide some brand new design
features.  They are extremely powerful and versatile and yet very
easy for anyone to use.” 

Advanced Imaging Capabilities
      To
enhance dark scenes and provide crisp text and graphics, the DLP optical
system and Sharp optical technology work together to create a 2200:1
contrast ratio.  The new models also feature high brightness (3000
ANSI lumens on the PG-F317X and PG-F312X, 2600 ANSI lumens on the PF-F262X,
and 2300 ANSI lumens on the PG-F212X) for a clear picture in virtually
any lighting conditions.  DLP chip technology ensures that every
picture is displayed in a seamless, finely detailed manner.  A
DVI input terminal enables virtually noise-free images from digital
sources.  The terminal also complies with High-Bandwidth Digital
Content Protection (HDCP) to support digital video content in high-definition. 
High-speed on/off switching also helps deliver smooth full-motion video.  

Intuitive Design and
Ease of Use

      These
Sharp DLP projectors employ a smart front exhaust design that exhausts
potentially damaging hot air from the projector and away from meeting
participants sitting to the side or behind the projector, eliminating
excess noise and distracting hot air. 
         Each
of these projectors employs a 3x color wheel with six color segments
including yellow and cyan, added to red, green, blue and white, providing
high-accuracy image reproduction. The color wheel uses an ultra-quiet
cooling fan to reduce distracting fan noise to an almost unnoticeable
29dB.  DLP projector owners also enjoy lower cost of ownership
and longer projector lifespan thanks to the DLP sealed system that limits
dust, dirt and smoke from entering core parts of the optics.
      These
Sharp DLP projectors start up in approximately three seconds. Direct
Power Off lets users unplug and move the projector while controlling
the power for multiple projectors simultaneously by using the room’s
primary power switch in conjunction with the auto restart function. 
Each projector includes an intuitive Setup Guide to demonstrate features
interactively, including focus, zoom and height adjustment.  These
DLP projectors also include interactive help menus that display commonly
occurring problems, as well as built-in closed caption with black and
white text for easy readability.   
Extensive Connectivity
      These
Sharp DLP projectors afford a wide array of inputs and outputs for use
in connecting to DVD Players, cable and satellite boxes, laptop and
desktop computers, HDTV tuners, VCRs and video game consoles. 

DVI-I and D-sub terminals (in/out) are also provided. 
      The
PG-F317X model adds a built-in network connection with a RJ-45 LAN Connector
for remote control and access by a Web browser for diagnostics and automatic
e-mail of product status. 
      The
projectors are backed by a two-year parts and labor limited warranty
including two years of Sharp’s industry-leading 24-hour turnaround
“ER” Express Repair support.  The warranty on the user-replaceable
projection lamp is 90 days.
Availability and Pricing

The PG-F317X will be available
in August at a Manufacturer’s Suggested List Price


      (MSLP)
of $1,695

The PG-F312X will be available
in June at a MSLP of $1,595
The PG-F262X will be available

the latest LCD imaging technology with simplicity, functionality and
low cost of ownership for use in virtually any customer application,
from conference rooms and lecture halls to special events and other
permanent installations.” 
Ease of Use and Flexibility
      The
new LCD projector series provides simple-to-use features that education
and
business professionals will appreciate,
such as ImageACE Resizing and autoSYNC, which ensure that projected
images are uniform, regardless of signal source.  In addition to
the included standard zoom lens, the new projectors offer four optional
lenses making these models adaptable to even the most demanding applications. 
With Sharp’s rapid release lens mechanism, lens changes are quick
and virtually effortless.  Additionally, convenient side-access
to the lamp and filters ensures easy maintenance, even when the unit
is ceiling mounted. 

Superior Image Quality and Connectivity
      Providing
an excellent picture for detailed presentations, the XG-C455W and PG-C355W
utilize three polysilicon LCDs for superior, uniform high-quality images
and higher color saturation.  In addition to compatibility with
WXGA (1280 x 800) sources, the projectors offer compatibility with standard
RBG and video sources, as well as 720p HDTV for use with current and
next-generation video technologies.
      For
use in multiple applications, the models feature extensive connectivity,
including a built-in RJ-45 LAN terminal, DVI-D input with HDCP compatibility
for further PC/Video connectivity, two RGB or component inputs, S-video,
composite video, stereo audio and a port for a wired remote control.  

Remote Access and Control Software
      The
XG-C455W and PG-C355W have a built-in RJ-45 LAN connection and Web server
that allows direct control from the desktop to the projector without
special software.  Sharp’s Display Manager Software connects
one or more LAN-enabled projectors to a network for remote control,
asset management and diagnostics.  The software minimizes downtime
and expedites maintenance by self-diagnosing system errors, instantly
alerting the control PC or

emailing an error message to a predetermined
list.  The projectors also have an RS-232C port for remote control. 

Built-In Security
      While
easy to operate, the series also has features to discourage theft. 
The projectors come equipped with a sturdy “Notevision®
Lockdown” bolt to mount the projector to a ceiling through its optical
block, as well as “key code activation” to prevent unauthorized
operation.  Sharp also offers an optional ceiling mount cable lock
system, along with Kensington Lock compatibility. 


Low Cost of Ownership and Extended
Warranty
      Sharp
delivers a low cost of ownership over the projector’s lifespan. 
The new Conference/Classroom series has a Low Power Mode that extends
lamp life up to 3,000 hours and minimizes operational costs and lamp
changes.  The Low Power Mode also significantly reduces power consumption
and fan noise.  Additionally, these models are among the quietest
in the industry, with a low fan noise of only 31dB (in Low Power mode).
      The
XG-C455W and PG-C355W are backed by a two-year parts and labor limited
warranty including two years of Sharp’s industry-leading 24-hour turnaround
“ER” Express Repair support.  The warranty on the user-replaceable
projection lamp is 90 days. 
Availability and Pricing


The XG-C455W will be available
in June at a Manufacturer’s Suggested List Price (MSLP) of $3,695
The PG-C355W will be available
in June at a MSLP of $2,999

SHARP
PROFESSIONAL LCD MONITORS PROVIDE SUPERIOR IMAGE QUALITY
TO ENHANCE BUSINESS PRESENTATIONS AND IMAGING NEEDS

Sharp Highlights
Customer Applications at InfoComm 2008 
LAS VEGAS,
June 18, 2008 – Reinforcing its LCD dominance, Sharp is showcasing
the diverse applications and successful integrations of its Professional
LCD Monitor line at InfoComm 2008.  The Sharp® LCD
Monitor line is designed for a variety of professional settings, with
models ideal for both landscape and portrait modes, and industry-leading
specs that maintain Sharp’s strong position in the LCD industry. 

      “Large
screen-display customers are experiencing lower operational costs, increased
efficiencies and improved business communication with Sharp LCD Monitor
applications in all types of business environments,” said Dan Wynne,
senior director of marketing, Professional Display Division, Sharp Imaging
and Information Company of America.  “The superior image quality
and strong reliability of Sharp LCD Monitors lend themselves to numerous
presentation opportunities and vertical business categories including
medical, digital signage, display exhibition, education and many others.”
      At
InfoComm, Sharp is highlighting the success and improved workflow that
customers have experienced from Sharp Professional LCD Monitor applications
across different industry sectors.  Full case studies are available
upon request.  Some examples include:  
Medical 

Large LCD displays help in delicate
brain surgery 
IMRIS, a leading manufacturer of surgical
imaging solutions, teamed with Sharp Professional LCD Displays to help
with delicate brain surgery in the operating rooms at Children's Hospital
of Atlanta, where moveable MRI machines are revolutionizing the way
surgery is performed.  Using a technology from IMRIS, MRI images
of the brain can appear within moments on a trio of Sharp 65-inch LCD
monitors on the wall of the operating room.  This allows the surgical
team to zoom in on the images while the patient is in the operating
room, display several different views, even quad split them if necessary,
to determine if any of the tumor remains.  MRI images of the brain
used to be done prior to surgery to pinpoint a tumor’s location and
then post-surgery to determine if any of the tumor remained. If so,
the patient often went back for surgery a second time.  This new
technology from IMRIS allows the surgeon to view the images during the
first surgery, saving money and easing patient suffering.

Green patient room promises faster
recovery, lower costs and environmental benefits 

Architect Michael Stack of Anshen+Allen
found through research that a ‘greener’ patient room design can
help people heal faster, increase staff efficiency, and improve a medical
center’s ability to stay open and productive in the face of catastrophic
events, such as the power plant failures that occurred in the wake of
Hurricane Katrina. Such a design using green materials and technologies
can also make a difference in a hospital’s profitability, which of
course is crucial if these institutions are to continue to provide high-level
care. Stack took these concepts and designed a full-scale “green
patient room” prototype that is touring industry trade shows and conventions. 
Among other innovations, the prototype includes a medical information
center built around a 46-inch Sharp Professional
LCD display, allowing Anshen+Allen’s green patient room to eliminate
traditional medical charts and replace them with a networked computer
tied to the 46-inch Sharp display on the wall behind the bed. 
The room also includes an alcove with a sleeper sofa and work area for
family members, minimizes noise and machinery, and even has an open
air terrace.  
Digital Signage 

Advertising startup explores alternate
delivery vehicle 

In an era where DVRs and plain old channel
surfing encourage viewers to avoid commercial messages, the OnSite Network
has found a way to increase advertising viewership by specific market
segments.  The key has been to take advantage of group viewing
dynamics in sports bars, restaurants and other out-of-home venues by
adding content and advertising to broadcast TV feeds.  Using a
Sharp flat-panel LCD display, OnSite puts a 7-inch wide strip on the
right side of the broadcast image for additional content and a 5-inch
tall strip along the bottom for advertising.  A key insight behind
the concept is that viewers will read, and in a social setting talk
about, written material added to a TV image without losing track of
the main program. That’s what drives the game-time statistics displayed
on ESPN and upcoming stories at the bottom of a CNN screen.  Through
this application, OnSite is measurably building viewership and the amount
of time a bar or restaurant patron will spend watching television. 

Museum Exhibition 

High-definition exhibition brings
tigers to life 
Wildlife photographer and filmmaker Carol
Amore is using Sharp’s Professional LCD Monitors to bring her work
to life.  Her traveling exhibition preserves the high-definition
clarity of the images she has filmed and captured with such success
that the exhibition immerses the visitor, allowing them to see the wildlife
images in true, realistic form.  Amore started her quest in India
in 1999 and has followed five tigers in their natural setting. 

She recorded these events in the wild, often from the top of an elephant,
and is bringing them to life at the newly-opened exhibition at the Santa
Ana Discovery Science Center.  The exhibition features interactive
activities and beautiful, realistic imagery displayed on Sharp LCD monitors. 
The concept of high-definition video is gaining high acceptance in museum
exhibits because of visitor demand, since they often have HD televisions
and home theaters themselves.     

      Sharp
LCD monitors incorporate several proprietary technologies and features
that ensure unparalleled image quality for a professional presentation
of information and images.  The monitors have anti-glare and low-reflection
properties, enabling them to be placed in bright areas where other screens
might appear washed out.  Higher contrast lets viewers discern
details they might otherwise miss, particularly when viewing darker
content.  176-degree viewing angles help the monitors display a
crisp picture that can be seen from virtually anywhere in the room. 
A Black TFT/Bright Pixel Elimination feature ensures that if a failed
pixel occurs, it is effectively invisible to the viewer.

4 of these Toshiba's for our own houses of worship, though I doubt they will blend splitscreen/hard-edge only like the New Epson EB-G series of installation projectors.

Toshiba Launches Premium Wireless Projector for Large Venues
¶ TDP-TW420U Features Multi-screen Functionality, Windows Vista(R) Wireless Network Capabilities and PC-Free' Presentations for $2,919
IRVINE, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Jun. 18, 2008
Adding to its award-winning projector lineup, Toshiba's Digital
Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems,
Inc., today announced the launch of a high-powered projector, the
TDP-TW420U. This new DLP(R) XGA projector is the company's first
presentation solution with multi-screen functionality, which allows
users to network up to four projectors from a single computer to
create larger images for a variety of venue sizes. This innovative
projector is affordably priced at $2,9191 (MSRP) and offers Toshiba's
three-year standard limited warranty(2).


Designed for corporate customers, higher education and house of
worship (HOW) facilities, the Toshiba TDP-TW420U projector is ideal
for presenters who demand quality, versatility and performance.
Packaged in a compact form factor, the high-performance TDP-TW420U
projector features DLP(R) technology, a whopping 4,000 ANSI lumens of
brightness, native XGA 1024 x 768 resolution, and 2000:1 contrast
ratio to deliver bright, captivating images that can go anywhere,
anytime. The projector is bright enough to leave the lights on or the
window shades open during presentations.


"Toshiba has once again utilized its expertise in mobile computing
to integrate the most versatile features in the TDP-TW420U projector
to fit a variety of Pro AV installation and mobile presentation uses,"
said Jeff Barney, vice president and general manager, Digital Products
Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. "The Toshiba
TDP-TW420U wireless projector's multi-screen function makes this
presentation device ideal for customers who need to combine up to four
projectors to create large venue displays or to present up to two
different screen images at once from one computer source."


"With the TDP-TW420U projector, Toshiba is delivering what the
house of worship segment is looking for most, reliability, picture
quality, high brightness and resolution along with a longer warranty,"
said Tanya Lippke, manager of survey market research at TFC Info. The
Toshiba TDP-TW420U projector also offers church users high brightness
for difficult ambient lighting situations and the option to
incorporate additional long throw or short throw lenses, critical for
the multitude of front or rear projection applications used in
churches."


Weighing less than 10-pounds, the projector also features Windows
Vista(R) networking capabilities and integrated wireless3
functionality for quick and easy presentation set up, as well as
remote network management and extensive multimedia connectivity. The
projector also offers on-the-go professionals the option to deliver
"PC-free" presentations with a USB thumb drive by simply storing the
presentation in JPEG format and connecting to the USB port.


Toshiba's TDP-TW420U is intelligently designed with DLP(R)
technology to deliver exceptional image quality and crisp, clear
pictures and bright, rich colors. Unlike many projectors on the
market, this Toshiba DLP projector is filter-free. This design feature
keeps damaging dust particles from collecting on imaging elements and
therefore may reduce the total cost of ownership by requiring one less
part to replace, less maintenance and by extending the projector's
lamp life.


Users can also expect seamless presentations with remote network
management from this projector. The TDP-TW420U projector can be
networked and controlled remotely via a wired LAN connection, which is
password protected for increased security. Also, to help reduce the
total cost of ownership and wear and tear on the unit, the Toshiba
TDP-TW420U projector's network capability allows IT administrators to
remotely control the projector over a network and receive e-mail
notification via SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) for issues
related to temperature, fan and lamp status.


The Toshiba TDP-TW420U projector also includes the following
leading-edge features:


-- Windows Vista(R) network capabilities allows presenters to
wirelessly transfer JPEG files from a notebook with ease, for
slide show presentations or images embedded in documents;


-- Built-in IEEE 802.11 b/g wireless(3) functionality delivers
fast set-up time and enables presenters to easily connect
their wireless notebooks to the projector from anywhere in the
room, and deliver sequential presentations without the need
for cables;


-- Toshiba's unique Natural Color Enhancer4 color correction
circuitry, delivering exceptionally sharp and vivid images
that more closely match original presentation colors;


-- "Blackboard" function with wall color adjustment. Simply
select a wall color, such as green, black, brown, blue or
beige, for a clearer display on non-screen surfaces;


-- A fully-loaded presentation remote control with laser pointer
ensures worry-free, professional presentations even in the
most unforgiving environments;


-- Digital zoom function on the remote control allows the
presenter to zoom in on a specific image or presentation
element, such as spreadsheet numbers or other important
details;


-- Password protection and key-lock function to help prevent
unauthorized use;


-- Instant power shut down capability that enables the projector
to power off instantly once disconnected from the power outlet
with no cool-down time required;


-- Automatic digital keystone correction system, allowing
presenters to adjust errors quickly and easily for a
proportional, squared display;


-- Auto set which allows users to automatically synchronize the
setting between their PCs and the projector;


-- Whisper-quiet operation of only 29 decibels (dB) (in low mode)
- quieter than a soft conversation;


-- In addition, the projector features convenient lamp access on
the top panel for easy lamp replacement, even when the
projector is ceiling mounted.


The Toshiba TDP-TW420U projector will be available in July 2008
through Toshiba's authorized distributors, VARs, mail-order outlets
and http://www.toshibadirect.com.

3LCD Achieves Projection Industry Milestone: 50 Million Chips Shipped
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)-- Jun. 18, 2008
3LCD, the world's number one projection display technology, at
InfoComm 2008 is celebrating the achievement of a major projection
industry milestone. 3LCD is the first projection technology to surpass
the 50 million chip mark.(a)


3LCD chips are the key components driving the majority of
projectors in the global classrooms, conference rooms and home
theatres. The first 3-chip LCD projector was introduced to the market
in 1989. Since then, leading manufacturers of 3LCD projectors have
been driving the market forward with break-throughs in image quality,

Reliability Paves the Road to 50 Million

In the two decades since front projection technology has taken a
hold in the market, 3LCD technology has emerged as a leader with
outstanding track record of performance and reliability in the field.
With millions of projectors sold and in-use today, 3LCD technology
delivers every day where users need it most - in meeting rooms,
classrooms, board rooms, houses of worship and large venues around the
world. One of the hallmarks of the 3LCD engine and its durability is
its solid-state optical engine, which has no moving mechanical parts.


Number One in the Projector Market


3LCD recently announced it has expanded its leadership position
globally. In the front projection market, 3LCD's market share has
grown to a 6.3-point unit share lead over competitors in the first
quarter of 2008, according to Pacific Media Associates (PMA). 3LCD
technology-based products kicked off 2008 with 52.9 percent total
global market share.(a)

And I missed some pre-show goodies the past few days, but the release wire folks just emailed me an overview including the older anouncements.

Remember those funny Italian CRT projectors, from the mid-eighties, with a fourth tube, well here's Sanyo with its latest, a 4LCD projector:


SANYO Fisher Company
www.sanyoprojectors.com
News Release
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANYO LAUNCHES NEW 4LCD TECHNOLOGY IMPROVING BRIGHTNESS AND COLOR
ACCURACY
- 4LCD, SANYO's latest optical engine, adds a proprietary ‘Color Control Device’ to the existing red,
green and blue panels found in 3LCD projectors
- The portable PLC-XP200L, the first 4LCD projector, delivers an impressive 7000 lumens with 2200:1
contrast ratio
- Active Maintenance Filter (AMF) virtually eliminates filter cleaning as part of projector maintenance
CHATSWORTH, CA and INFOCOMM, LAS VEGAS, NV. -- June 17, 2008 -- SANYO, one of the
world’s largest manufacturers of LCD and DLP projectors introduces their latest optical engine, called
4LCD, which adds a Color Control Device to conventional 3LCD (red/green/blue) systems. The first
projector to launch this innovative new 4LCD engine is the PLC-XP200L. The additional Color Control
Device in the 4LCD optical engine allows the PLC-XP200L to automatically control the amount of
yellow light in the image, producing higher luminosity with improved color accuracy and clarity.
The demand for even brighter projectors continues to come from the field as systems integrators are
asked to install video displays in extremely large venues such as convention halls, conference rooms,
auditoriums and houses of worship. However, as brightness levels increase on 3LCD projectors, there
is a reverse effect in color reproduction. Colors become noticeably washed out, lacking vibrancy and
realism.
SANYO's innovative solution overcomes the limitations of 3LCD technology, opening the way for new
projectors capable of extremely high luminosity without the trade off in color accuracy. The
PLC-XP200L, the first projector to benefit from this new technology, is rated at an amazing 7000
lumens. Coupled with the impressive high contrast ratio of 2200:1, the PLC-XP200L is capable of
generating clearer, richer and more beautiful images than was ever possible with high brightness 3LCD
projectors.
SANYO developed a new high-speed image compensating LSI for the 4LCD engine. The combination
of the 4LCD engine and the new LSI allows for up to 20% more color space than our conventional
projectors. With the controlled yellow light, SANYO’s Advanced Color Correction technology separates
each color histogram for unparalleled color processing and correction, resulting in beautiful and
naturally rich colors.
Additionally, the PLC-XP200L is equipped with a high-output, single lamp that is designed for
exceptional light efficiency. Aside from generating sharper and brighter displays in large halls and
meeting rooms, the 4LCD design is well suited for digital signage and advertising in brightly lit
environments.
-moreSANYO
LAUNCHES NEW 4LCD TECHNOLOGY, cont. pg. 2, 6/17/08
"This is just the first of many projectors we will release featuring our new 4LCD Engine. The increased
luminosity and contrast ratio coupled with the dramatically improved color accuracy of this new design
is going to revolutionize the capabilities of LCD projector solutions," says Mark Holt, Vice President and
General Manager for SANYO’s Presentation Technologies Division.
Minimal maintenance and repair was essential for the XP200L, so it was outfitted with SANYO’s
exclusive Active Maintenance Filter (AMF). AMF is a single filter cartridge that contains ten lengths of
filtering material plus an airflow sensor to detect when airflow is obstructed by dust. The AMF system
automatically advances a clean section of filter when needed. When the last section of filter material
becomes obstructed an on-screen graphic appears telling the user to change the cartridge. Each filter
lasts approximately 10,000 hours with a cartridge lifecycle of about 2 years (calculation based on 14
hrs/day projector use). The filters are easy to replace due to the side loading access on the projector.
To further increase reliability and performance, the PLC-XP200L uses SANYO's unique Durable
Inorganic Optical System (DIOS).
The SANYO PJ-NET ORGANIZER is available, allowing the PLC-XP200L to be connected to a wired
network via Ethernet. Using the PJ-NET MASTER software all projector functions such as power
status, lamp status, input mode, signal condition, lamp-use time, etc. can be monitored and controlled
from a remote location.
For quick and easy installation the XP200L is outfitted with a motor driven vertical and horizontal lens
shift. Up/Down/Left/Right lens shift ensures image projection at any angle of up to 360-degrees, allowing
ceiling or floor image projection.
A special mechanical shutter is also placed behind the lens and activated by the remote control, allowing the
presenter to close the lens and temporarily darken the screen.
There is an abundance of digital/analog video input terminals including a DVI-D (digital and analog video),
component video and D-Sub15. The input signal compatibility includes UXGA, SXGA+, SXGA, WXGA,
XGA, SVGA, VGA, and MAC. It is also compatible with HD resolutions including 1080i 50/60, 1035i, 720p
as well as standard definition (480p, 480i, 575p, 575i).

Panasonic Introduces Next-Generation Three-Chip DLP Large Venue Projectors

New PT-DZ12000U and PT-D12000U Delivers Outstanding High-Brightness and Superior Image Quality with Compact 12,000 Lumen Projector Solutions

LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)-- Jun. 18, 2008 InfoComm Booth #C2401 - Panasonic Projector Systems Company, Unit of Panasonic Corporation of North America, today unveiled its new 12,000 lumen three-chip DLP projectors that set the standard for displaying High Definition content in large venues. The high resolution PT-DZ12000U WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixels) and PT-D12000U SXGA (1400 x 1050 pixels) models are designed for large venue and rental and staging solutions such as, commercial digital cinema, higher education, corporate and digital advertising customers.
Both the PT-DZ12000U and PT-D12000U include new, built-in edge blending and a geometric adjustment feature that enables both projectors to deliver dynamic warping capability and presentation solutions. Edge blending, used primarily for the rental and staging market, makes it possible to overlap multiple images to create a single larger image, thus enabling users to project images on oversized screens for large audiences. The Panasonic Projectors' easy to operate geometric adjustment feature makes warping images to be projected on curved surfaces possible, making these new projectors ideal solutions for museums with amphitheaters and other similar-type settings.

Superior Brightness

The PT-DZ12000U and PT-D12000U both go beyond full-HD expectations by setting a benchmark of 12,000 lumens of brightness. The three-chip DLP technology provides resistance to image deterioration over time to ensure reliable, high-quality operation. They are also equipped with a 3D Color Management feature that helps optimize color saturation, hue and brightness levels for approximately 1,070,000,000 colors.

Panasonic picture quality for the PT-DZ12000U and PT-D12000U are also supported by a new Detail Clarity Processor. The projector's new Detail Clarity Processor analyzes frequency characteristics of each frame and applies necessary sharpness at varying degrees to create natural, life-like images with exceptional clarity.

The System Daylight View function uses an image processing circuit to compensate for the loss of color saturation that occurs when light reflects onto the screen from bright surroundings. This feature is especially effective for producing crisp, sharp images in dark portions containing gradation.

"Displaying HD content in large venues requires impeccable image quality, reliability and ease of installation and use," said Thomas Zitelli, president of Panasonic Projector Systems Company. "The PT-DZ12000U and PT-D12000U offer customer's flexible, state-of-the-art projection solutions with professional quality viewing for hours of extended use."

Ultimate Efficiency and Flexibility

Each model comes equipped with the Auto Cleaning Robot, an automatic filter cleaning system that enables about 2,000 hours of use without filter maintenance. The liquid-cooling system, directly cools the DLP chips and allows both models to be used in temperatures up to 45(degree)C (113(degree)F), enabling their use in a wider variety of environments. The micro-cut filter traps dust particles 10 microns or larger, safeguarding the optical blocks and capturing about seven times as much dust as previous models' filters. With Panasonic's original four-lamp system, both 12,000 lumen projectors feature a lamp replacement cycle. If one lamp burns out during operation, the lamp relay mode allows the remaining lamps to provide plenty of light to continue projecting(1).

The wide adjustment range for the horizontal and vertical lens shift provides flexibility for easy installations because it assures virtually distortion-free images, while the optional lenses offer different throw distances. It's through these powered zoom/focus lenses that enable the projector to perform in a variety of environments.

Both models, which support PJLink(TM) protocol can be connected to a wired LAN connection, allowing remote control, monitoring, and e-mail alert messaging functions through Web browser. Temperature alarm and burnt-lamp LEDs are also included on each projector, letting operators know exactly where to address maintenance issues.

The Panasonic PT-DZ10000U and PT-D12000U projectors are both made in Japan, Buy American (BAA/TAA) compliant and will be available at authorized presentation systems dealers from August. The manufacturer's MSRP of the PT-DZ12000U is $69,000 and the MSRP of the PT-D12000U is $59,000.

LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)-- Jun. 18, 2008 The United States' premier show for cutting-edge AV technology, InfoComm08 is Lighthouse Technologies' chosen venue to demonstrate its state-of-the-art, high-resolution R6-B and R4-S LED panels, as well as debut its latest LED display with the LEDScape(R) Tile T120850, a high-resolution tile display designed for any size or shape of site at Booth N6713 in the North Hall at Las Vegas Convention Center.
R6-B is a 6mm pixel pitch, black-faced panel that brings a new dimension to the superb picture quality of Lighthouse LED screens with its 2,000 nits of brightness, enabling it to cope well with ambient light levels. Other features include a horizontal viewing angle of 140 (+70/-70) and vertical viewing angle of 90 (+40/-50), and it employs the single king pin for fast rigging, making it ideal for the indoor rental, exhibition and conference markets.

"Lighthouse understands the importance of designing a superior LED panel that can easily be installed and integrated at different venues and events for our clients," said Peter Chan, general manager of Lighthouse. "We have designed a superfine resolution of R4-B and R6-B series with Lighthouse's new 3-in-1 black Surface Mount Device (SMD) LED, which offers a much better contrast level and visual performance -- overall, providing the best possible return on investment for customers."

In addition, the black casing of the SMD provides a truer black level within the displayed image and a contrast ratio of 3,300:1 and 3,800:1, respectively. And the panels are able to run at lower temperatures, thereby consuming less power.

Series P4-B and P6-B permanent installation panels are ideal for main focal point applications such as branded retail outlets. In addition, these panels offer the added benefit of low noise levels and a high contrast ratio while producing extremely detailed content and striking images.

R4-S, meanwhile, is a standard version LED screen, designed for the indoor rental market. It offers 2,000 nits of brightness, wide viewing angles and M4 color uniformity control. For permanent installation, the P4-S and P6-S panels provide the same benefits and are perfectly suited to applications such as indoor exhibitions and a wide variety of retail environments.

"Lighthouse makes impressive, high-quality LED screens," said Andrew Gumper, president of AG Light and Sound, LED suppliers for "NBC Sunday Night Football." "During the season, the Lighthouse R4 screen was one of the only products that could stand up to the rigorous tour schedule, and we could always count on it to look amazing on a weekly HD broadcast. Superior quality and full support from Lighthouse Technologies made it our product of choice."

Finally, the LEDScape(R) Tile T120850 is a new departure from Lighthouse's traditional LED display panels, combining the concept of LED technology and its applications to a diverse array of "landscapes," producing an innovative display solution for architectural projects. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications, the tiles feature a 12mm pixel pitch and 8 x 8 pixels per Intelligent Module (IM). With 5,000 nits of brightness from 3-in-1 SMD LEDs and a viewing angle of 140 degrees, users can produce creative display designs for any size or shape of site.

"We are excited to offer a whole new visual dimension to large-scale events, including corporate and entertainment venues with LEDScape(R) Tile," said Ed Whitaker, senior sales manager of the U.S. market. "This new lighting fixture is extremely cost effective due to its modular nature and its ability to seamlessly bring together the world of lighting and video production, allowing abstract designs, blocks of color and large fixed or animated illustrations to be displayed for any size or shape."

Featuring a contrast ratio of 2,000:1, LEDScape(R) is driven by the SVP-SXGA processor designed exclusively for the LEDScape(R) series.

More information on all Lighthouse products will be available at the Lighthouse booth at N6713 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Although this forum section is not the correct I would love to hear your impressions of the LED front projector by TI.
size and noise level?
Native contrast and picture quality?
Built in color management?

Also, how did Sanyo implement 4LCD? By specs it looks like the panels are on parallell light paths and not in series to increase contrast.

Has Philips discussed UHP beyond 350W?

thanks

I would also love if you could get any info on which brands to go aggressive with this new technology.
