Mitsubishi Launches Palm Sized PocketProjectorPerfect for mobile business presentations at a moment's notice (February 08, 2005)
Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, maker of award-winning, high-quality presentation and display products, today introduced its PocketProjector, one of the world's smallest projectors. Weighing in at 14 ounces and fitting easily into the palm of a hand or a coat pocket, the tiny projector is perfect for mobile professionals who need to make business presentations at a moment's notice. The PocketProjector can be battery powered or used with a universal car adapter for truly mobile presentations on the fly.
The PocketProjector has one of the shortest projection distances of mobile projectors on the market today: Users can easily create a 20-inch diagonal screen with only a little over a foot of projection distance, and a 40-inch image in less than a yard. With a special suggested retail launch price of $699, the affordable PocketProjector is the next must-have professional tool for 2005.
"For mobile professionals, the PocketProjector is the newest display tool of choice," said James Chan, director, projector product marketing for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America. "This projector can go where no projector has gone before, and our customers are going to find it helps them be creative and more productive."
The PocketProjector powers on or off instantly, for quick and easy start-up anywhere a traditional presentation is possible. And it connects to a notebook or pocket computer with a monitor-out, or even a portable DVD player for immediate use anywhere. It is lighted by three Lumileds LEDs (red, green, blue) that produce an SVGA (800 x 600 pixels) image formed digitally by the latest DLP chip by Texas Instruments. The projector's advanced lighting technology is rated to last an unprecedented 20,000 hours; with an average use of five hours per day, the lamp is expected to last over ten years.
The projector will ship with a protective slip cover and AC power cord; Mitsubishi plans on offering Convenience Packs with suggested retail prices starting from $199, which will contain application-specific cables, accessories and small screens for consumer and industry segments. Optional battery base will also be available for a suggested retail price of $149.
"Our new PocketProjector is one of the most advanced products I've seen in a long time," said Aki Ninomiya, vice president, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America. "It establishes new standards and creates all new applications and markets for projection displays."
Pricing, Availability, Warranty
Mitsubishi's new PocketProjector will be available in July 2005 through online retailers and major retail channels at a suggested retail price of $699. Optional battery pack and Convenience Packs will also be made available upon release of the projector. The projector comes with Mitsubishi one-year limited warranty on parts and labor.
