3D-Ready Wide-Screen and Short-Throw Portable Projectors
Mitsubishi Electric’s Presentation Products Division has announced two new wide-screen format projectors targeting cost-conscious customers looking for good value in classroom or meeting room projectors. Mitsubishi’s EW230U-ST (Short Throw) and EX270U WXGA projectors are 3D-ready and produce high-quality, wide-XGA images at competitive prices.
“It’s important that everyone’s dollar goes a little farther these days,” said Wayne Kozuki, product manager for Mitsubishi Digital Electronic America’s Presentation Products Division. “With these two new projectors, the high-quality performance and superior technology that Mitsubishi is known for is a great value-add for our customers.”
Mitsubishi two 3D-ready projectors, the EW230U-ST short-throw model and the EW270U, offer great performance at an economical price. Even though these new projectors are part of Mitsubishi’s entry level product line, each feature a six-segment color wheel (red, blue, green, white, yellow and cyan) to produce rich and accurate colors, and are built using Texas Instruments’ DLP technology and BrilliantColor™ for superior color performance.
The Mitsubishi EW230U-ST and EW270U projectors are enhanced with an RJ-45 connector and integrated Crestron RoomView support for simple plug-and-play connectivity as well as HDMI™ for high-definition video sources. They also include closed-captioning from supported content sources, and display 3D content viewable with DLP-Link-compatible active shutter 3D glasses.
The EW270U and EW230U-ST are both WXGA (1280 x 800 resolution) and blast 2500 lumens and 2600 lumens, respectively. At 5.3 pounds and 6.2 pounds, respectively, both projectors are easily portable from room to room, with a direct power off function that eliminates power-down time and allows presenters to make quick exits.
Each projector offers a substantial 4000* hour lamp life (in low mode), meaning fewer replacements over time, saving time and money. As a short-throw projector, the EW230U-ST can project a 60-inch diagonal image from less than 26 inches away, so teachers and presenters do not create distracting on-screen shadows while addressing their students and audience.
The EW230U-ST and EW270U projectors also offer a filter-free engine with a convenient top-loading lamp to make installation and lamp replacement simple and easy. Mitsubishi offers a one-year limited warranty on its lamps, making the projectors even more cost-effective to own while giving users peace of mind.
Each projector provides a monitor loop through and RS-232 interface for flexible installation options, as well as variable audio out so users can adjust a presenter’s volume through external speakers. They are also equipped with a reinforced anti-theft security bar for security-conscious users.
All of Mitsubishi’s new projectors are environmentally friendly with an energy-efficient, long lamp life and digital user manuals; printed materials and packaging cartons are made with recycled paper. These projectors also consume less than one watt of power when in low stand-by mode.
Each projector comes with Mitsubishi’s three-year limited warranty on parts and labor, and a one-year limited warranty on the lamp. Like all Mitsubishi data projectors, the new projectors are covered by the Express Replacement Assistance (ERA) Program, a comprehensive nationwide service that offers next business-day replacement** for down units that are under warranty.
