Toshiba today announced a new series of digital projectors, the X-Series. The new line launches with four models delivering resolutions up top 1,600 x 1,200 with 2,400 ANSI lumens of brightness.
The four new models include the TLP-X21 (11.2 lbs) and TLP-X20 (13.0 lbs), both featuring 2,400 ANSI lumens brightness, and the TLP-X11 (11.2 lbs) and TLP-X10 (13.0 lbs), both with 2,000 ANSI lumens brightness. All four X-Series models incorporate LCD technologies and several convenience features, including support for PC Type II memory cards, to display presentations without having to connect a computer.
Toshiba's X-Series projectors feature a range of inputs, including composite, S-Video, component video plus analog and digital RGB, and are compatible with all video formats including NTSC, PAL and SECAM. All projectors can display images ranging from 30" for small conference-room presentations to 25' pictures for large audiences.
All models can display full XGA (1,024 x 768), compressed SXGA (1,280 x 1,024) and compressed UXGA (1,600 X 1,280) resolution. In addition, all X-Series models offer a choice of both 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios and include built-in digital progressive scan circuitry for full compatibility with 480p and 720p formats, as well as the ability to accept 1080i signals and display them in the EDTV format.
All models feature three 1.3" polysilicon TFT 1,024 x 768 LCD panels, zoom lenses, long-life 2,000-hour UHP lamp and advanced digital video circuitry for extraordinary resolution, sharpness and color purity.
Toshiba's TLP-X11 and TLP-X21 both feature a 1.45 million pixel digital color document camera. This free arm document camera is capable of projecting written materials and three-dimensional objects directly from the surface of the projector. A 4x digital zoom lets users highlight particular areas of a displayed image or object and enlarge it for a close-up view. Additionally, the cameras on the TLP-X11 and TLP-X21 swivel 360 degrees, which allows either projector to double as a videoconferencing tool.
The remote supplied with all X-Series models includes a wireless computer mouse control with a trigger for executing commands and a built-in laser pointer. Additional features include tabletop, ceiling and rear-projection capability, a 4x digital zoom and a built-in speaker.
Toshiba's TLP-X21 and TLP-X20 projectors will be available this month for $10,995 and $9,395, respectively. The TLP-X11 and TLP-X10 projectors will be available in December for $9,995 and $8,495, respectively. For more information, visit http://www.toshiba.com/presentations.
