Mitsubishi ColourView Projectors – Innovative Technology
Mitsubishi Electric, maker of award-winning, high-quality presentation and display products, announces technological innovations in its new XL30U ColourView family of projectors. The product family, which includes the XL30U ColourView, XL25U ColourView and SL25U ColourView, now offers increased brightness, improved video, and extremely quiet operation in concert with Mitsubishi's exclusive six-axis colour control system called ColourView Natural Colour Matrix and sRGB, Microsoft's colour standard.
The XL30U ColourView, an XGA LCD projector, produces 3000 ANSI lumens of brightness; the XL25U, 2300 ANSI lumens; and the SL25U, 2600 ANSI lumens. Each model is housed in a similar form factor weighing 5.9kgs, which is perfect for desktop or installed applications in corporate boardrooms, schools, auditoriums, churches and hotels. The XL30U ColourView projectors also are super-quiet, operating at 27 decibels during lamp conservation mode.
"The XL30U ColourView family of projectors are some of the quietest projectors in the industry today, and are particularly effective in schoolrooms and auditoriums where ambient sound can often pose a problem," says Julian Lefebvre, Projector Marketing Manager at BDT Ltd, exclusive distributors for Mitsubishi Electric. "Presenters, teachers and clergy can speak in normal tones, and their audiences can hear them more easily."
One of Mitsubishi's latest innovations is 3D CineView, a proprietary video technology based on Mitsubishi television expertise. "When transforming film to electronic display, the resulting video is often compromised," offers Lefebvre. "With 3D CineView, flickering, artefacts, crawling or blinking is significantly reduced, producing an image as sharp and smooth as its native film format.
The upgraded Picture-in-Picture feature now offers two live images rather than just one. Unlike other projectors, each picture contains a simultaneous live feed from a computer and a video source.
The universal remote control unit that ships with the XL30U ColourView is the first of its kind offered by a projector manufacturer. It can be easily programmed to operate two additional video sources, such as a DVD or VCR, allowing presenters to switch easily between devices, and eliminating the need for expensive control systems typical with other projectors.
The XL30U ColourView family is fully compatible with Mitsubishi's new ProjectorView networking system, which connects its LCD projectors via an external serial-to-Ethernet translator. With ProjectorView, these projectors are instantly connected to a local area network 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. Authorised users can remotely monitor lamp life, internal projector temperature and other critical parameters, making projector tracking and technical support easy and efficient. ProjectorView also enables the projector to be operated without a remote. In the classroom, where remotes can be easily lost or stolen, teachers can simply launch ProjectorView through a web browser for full operation and control.
Mitsubishi projectors also have one of the best warranty programs in the presentation industry for LCD projectors. Unlike other manufacturers, the warranty lasts two years, including Express Replacement Assistance, which covers next business-day replacement for faulty units, delivered through leading express couriers. ERA is included for two years on all Mitsubishi models.
