Mitsubishi announced the mid-range HC7800D home theater projector that features the latest DLP 0.065-inch DMD chip which enables 3D technology. The Full HD 1080p projector blasts 1,600 lumens for high-brightness, high-contrast (up to 30,000:1 full on/full off, up to 700:1 ANSI contrast ratio) images that are true to the original 2D and 3D content.
Mitsubishi claims the HC7800D shows impressive native 3D images with virtually no crosstalk when using its high-performance proprietary active shutter glasses. The projector is also one of the few models in its category with one of the industry's best 2D-to-3D Frame Rate Conversion using Mitsubishi's own algorithms in calculating and interpolating multiple depth levels in a 2D image, resulting in a near-perfect simulation of a true 3D frame of vision. This new, high-speed frame reproduction technology crafts detailed, high-definition 3D images with minimum crosstalk or distortion so 3D content appears to literally jump off the screen, even in high speed action scenes.
The HC7800D boasts long lamp life of up to 5,000 hours in low mode. This provides years of typical use before a lamp change. Its one-year limited warranty is also one of the best lamp warranties in the industry. Also, its fan is quiet at 25 dBa in low mode.
Two of the latest HDMI version 1.4 inputs support 3D signals, as well as provide easy set-up options for multiple video inputs. The projector's RS232 support offers plug-and-play connectivity with third-party remote operations for easy installation and control.

The Mitsubishi HC7800D projector will be available September 2011 for $3,495 with two-year limited warranty on parts and labor.
