Toshiba Announces Affordable 2.9-Pound Mobile Projector That Features 2,200 ANSI Lumens and PC-Less Presentations for Under $1,000
Building on its leadership in the small projector category, Toshiba’s Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced the company’s latest ultraportable projector offering the TDP-PX10U for mobile presenters, business users and consumers. The fully-loaded projector weighs in at a scant 2.9-pound, fits easily into a briefcase or carry-on luggage and is available for the low single estimated unit price (ESUP) of $999(1).
Small but mighty, the HDTV/DTV compatible projector offers incredible power and top performance features, such as a brilliant 2,200 ANSI lumens XGA 1,024 x 768 native resolution, razor sharp contrast ratio of 2000:1 and USB port for “PC-free” presentations, making it the ultimate choice for road warriors, corporate trainers and digital home entertainment on-the-go, such as video gaming, weekend sports and DVD movies. For added value, the projector also features a rich, vibrant DLP BrilliantColor display. The DLP BrilliantColor technology utilizes up to six separate colors: red, blue, green, cyan, yellow and magenta for a wider variety of accurate, vibrant colors that won’t fade over time. BrilliantColor technology enables up to a 50 percent increase in the brightness of colors.
“The TDP-PX10U ultraportable projector offers mobile professionals and consumers everything they need for extraordinary presentations and digital home entertainment without the back ache and premium pricing,” said Sam Malik, director of projector sales and marketing, Toshiba Digital Products Division. “Less than two-thirds the size of a sheet of paper and capable of creating up to an amazing 300-inch diagonal image, the TDP-PX10U projector will grab any audience’s attention.”
Presenters looking for a projector that is easy to use will appreciate the TDP-PX10U projector’s automatic set up feature and smart keystone correction system to ensure images are projected clearly, even in the most unforgiving presentation situations. The TDP-PX10U projector is equipped with a variety of connectivity options for presentations from the latest multimedia devices and includes a 2.0 watt speaker for enhanced presentations. The projector comes with a fully-loaded remote control and the unit can be hooked up to a cable or satellite set-top box for viewing high-definition television.
The Toshiba TDP-PX10U is currently available to order through Toshiba’s authorized distributors, VARs, mail-order outlets and www.toshibadirect.com.
