Mitsubishi Projectors – Quality Anti-Theft Protection

Mitsubishi Electric, maker of award-winning, high-quality presentation and display products, announced today that its lightest ultra-portable projector boasts the newest in product security features. Requested by the AV community, these added security protection elements are proving necessary in today's open and high-theft AV equipment environments.

Mitsubishi's XL8U has an on-screen numeric keypad that is programmed with a PIN known only to the projector's operator. This security feature is initiated through the remote control upon start-up of the projector, and allows users to completely block operation of the projector and/or edit its splash screen or menu settings.

"If someone steals an XL8U, and doesn't have the password, the projector can be useless," said Julian Lefebvre, projector product marketing for Mitsubishi Electric. "So what would be the point in stealing something you can't use?"

With an attractive, metallic ocean-blue colour matching the most advanced computer product lines, the XL8U is ideal for a presenter who has style and flair.

"The XL8 is designed as a personalized choice for a presenter," added Lefebvre. "The distinctive new colour and security-specific features make our new little projector a great addition to our solution-oriented product line."

Mitsubishi's XL8U projector offers XGA resolution (1024 x 768 pixels), weighs in at just 2.7kgs, provides 2000 ANSI lumens, abundantly bright for any conference or board room, and boasts a 400:1 contrast ratio, which makes whites very bright and blacks very dark. The lamp lasts for up to 3000 hours, 25 percent longer than most projectors.

The XL8U comes with a card-type standard remote control, with the option to upgrade to a Learning Remote, capable of switching inputs from various sources simultaneously, such as a computer, VCR, DVD player or television. It is also the only projector of its class to provide automatic vertical and manual horizontal keystone correction, offering extreme set-up flexibility; once the XL8U is in place, the picture can be readjusted digitally, regardless of the screen or surface used, without moving the projector. It is also fully compatible with Mitsubishi's exclusive ProjectorView™ networking system, which connects its projectors via an external serial-to-Ethernet translator.

"Our customers tell us that security is fast-becoming one of their major issues, particularly for smaller, easily-carried projectors. We're happy to bring the XL8U to market with innovative, effective and desirable features that protect such an important equipment investment."
