CEDIA EXPO 2004, August 26, 2004 — Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, far and away the leader in high definition home theater, will showcase 27 widescreen displays and televisions, along with the consumer electronics industry’s most advanced HDTV receiver/controller, at CEDIA EXPO 2004 in Indianapolis.
Heralding its theme, More Than Just Television…Mitsubishi Television, the company unveiled 12 HD and HD-upgradeable rear-projection televisions, six widescreen televisions featuring microdisplay technology, three new plasma displays, five LCD monitors, and its standard-bearing 82-inch, three-chip LCoS HDTV.
Mitsubishi also displayed its HD-6000 high definition receiver/controller, which includes a PVR (personal video recorder) that can record in high definition onto its 120-gigabyte hard drive.
“Never before have consumers had such a wide selection of digital home theater products from one manufacturer,” said Max Wasinger, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America. “Now anyone can experience Mitsubishi’s performance, quality and ease-of-use, regardless of their space limitations or viewing needs.”
Indeed, this year’s product line includes LCD monitors ranging from 22 to 55 inches; rear-projection TVs measuring 42 to 65 inches; 42-inch to 61-inch plasma monitors; and seven models with microdisplay technology spanning 52 to 82 inches in size.
Five of Mitsubishi’s new televisions integrate HD PVRs with 120-gigagbyte hard drives, which in addition to its digital recording capabilities (12 hours of HD, 72 hours of non-HD recording) includes MPEG SD encoders. The most compact HD receiver/controller Mitsubishi has ever built, the HD-6000 can be discretely added to any display, eliminating the need for set-top boxes, cables and PVR subscription fees.
Most of the new Mitsubishi, Medallion and Diamond series televisions feature an integrated Digital Cable Ready HDTV receiver; a CableCARD slot; FireWire (IEEE 1394) digital home networking ports and Mitsubishi’s NetCommand 4.0 system control. Models without the integrated HD receiver are upgradeable. Many of the new TVs also are equipped with PC inputs, AMVP2— Mitsubishi’s second-generation Advanced Multimedia Video Processor—and PerfectColor 6-way color adjustment.
