DLP Projector – High Contrast Ratio
Mitsubishi Electric, maker of award-winning,
high-quality presentation and display products, today announced the arrival of its
XD300U ColourView DLP™ projector designed for home entertainment and professional presentations.
Known for its superb colour reproduction technology, Mitsubishi Electric's XD300U
ColourView provides 2100 ANSI lumens and weighs 3kgs. It offers a remarkable 2000:1
contrast ratio-colours are rich, whites are brilliant, and blacks are extremely dark-a critical
consideration for home theater enthusiasts and professional presenters.
"A high contrast ratio means that shadows and darker scenes are rich in texture, not lost
in a fuzzy, indistinct wash," said Julian Lefebvre, professional visual display specialist for BDT Ltd,
distributors of Mitsubishi Electric in NZ. "It's particularly important in movies that are famous
for atmosphere, such as film noir. When projected through the XD300U, these movie images are
realistic and true."
The XD300U also boasts a super long lamp life-up to 4000 hours, lasting two or more
times than most competitive models. "A long lamp life translates into low cost of ownership,"
added Lefebvre. "One lamp could last as long as five years or more under normal conditions, with
typical levels of usage."
Set-up is quick and easy with the XD300U ColourView-images can be easily perfected
with many user-friendly features including both horizontal and vertical keystone correction. The
universal learning remote control unit that ships with the XD300U ColourView can be easily
programmed to operate two additional video sources, such as a DVD player or VCR, allowing
users to switch easily between displays and eliminating the need for expensive control systems
typical with other projectors.
The XD300U ColourView is fully compatible with Mitsubishi Electric's new ProjectorView™ networking
system, which connects its projectors via an external serial-to-Ethernet translator. With
ProjectorView, these projectors are instantly connected to a local area network (LAN)
through an assigned IP address, and can be controlled and monitored with a web browser
from a node in the LAN or through the Internet. Attaining true, accurate colours is
simple through the XD300U ColourView's intuitive six-axis colour adjustments and
dynamic gamma mode controls. sRGB compliance is also supported as a colour preset. The XD300U
ColourView also boasts Emmy-award winning video processing technology, known as Directional
Correlational Deinterlacing (DCDi™), invented and patented by Faroudja. DCDi eliminates
jagged edges that appear when standard interlaced video is viewed on progressive-scan
displays, producing video images that look smooth and natural.
"Combining a high contrast ratio, ColourView, and Faroudja's DCDi video technology
creates a projector with colour reproduction excellence, unlike any other manufacturer," said
Lefebvre, "It's a perfect convergence product for business applications and the home theater
