Dell 5100MP Delivers High Brightness, Increased Connectivity for Less Than $3,500

ROUND ROCK, Texas, Aug. 23, 2005 – Dell (NASDAQ:DELL) today introduced its most powerful, highest resolution projector that produces detailed images and includes leading features for conference rooms and home theaters.

The Dell™ 5100MP is a high-performance, high-brightness projector that is currently the only product in its class for less than $3,500(a). It features a 3,300 ANSI lumens (max)(b) brightness rating, SXGA+ (1400 X 1050) resolution and 2,500:1 contrast ratio for distinct black colors. The projector allows businesses and educators to present complex visual models with sharp detail and rich color in large conference rooms or lecture halls. The ability to project true high-definition content also makes the 5100MP ideal for home theaters.

“Dell is extending its legacy of delivering high-performance and high-quality projectors with innovative features at ground-breaking prices,” said Gerry Smith, vice president, Dell product group. “The 5100MP augments our projector offerings and gives us the ability to offer customers an ultimate projector with extreme brightness and high-resolution at a great price.”

The 5100MP Projector offers the most connectivity options in the Dell projector line-up and includes an RJ-45 port for network-based monitoring and troubleshooting. Other ports include HDMI, composite, VGA, M1 and S-Video, among others. Preset and user-programmable video and graphics modes help ensure optimal color performance, regardless of content displayed. Automatic vertical keystone correction technology helps ensure that a symmetrical image is displayed even when the projector is at an angle to the screen.

The 5100MP, housed in a sturdy magnesium chassis with silver accents, includes flexible installation options. Users can mount it to a ceiling (with optional kit), project from behind a screen or use it with a notebook or desktop system.
