Mitsubishi Intros New Projectors

High-end model offers 3,000 ANSI lumens By Dave Nagel
At the InfoComm convention in Las Vegas, Mitsubishi today introduced several new models in its projector lineup. The offerings range from entry-level models with 1,500 ANSI lumens to high-end models with 3,000 ANSI lumens. All of the models are expected to ship in September.

On the high end, Mitsubishi is showing off its XL30, X25 and SL25. All of the models are LCD-based and weigh in at 13 pounds. The XL30 is an XGA-resolution projector (1,024 x 768) with 3,000 ANSI lumens of brightness. The other two models offer 2,300 and 2,600 ANSI lumens of brightness, respectively. The projectors use three 0.99" LCD panels with a contrast ratio of 350:1. The models are compatible with Mitsubishi's ProjectorView networking system, which connects projectors to a LAN via Ethernet. The models also boast an improved picture in picture feature and 3D CineView, a technology that reduces image artifacts.

On the low end, Mitsubishi has introduced the XL2 and SL2 ColorView models. The XL2 offers 1,500 ANSI lumens of brightness and a lamp life of 2,500 hours. The SL2 offers 1,200 ANSI lumens and a 2,000-hour lamp life. Both offer Mitsubishi's ColorView Natural Color Matrix, a room illumination sensor, digital keystone adjustment, manual zoom and focus and 3D CineView technology. The low-end models are also compatible with Mitsubishi's ProjectorView networking technology.

The XL2 is an XGA-resolution projector that will sell for $3,495. The SL2, an SVGA projector (800 x 600), will sell for $2,495. The high-end model will be priced at $8,995 for the XL30, $8,295 for the XL25 and $6,495 for the SL25. For more information, visit
