Mitsubishi Electric Australia launches a new high brightness portable projector

2009-10-08

Mitsubishi Electric Australia is proud to announce the release of a new premium XGA projector. Ideal for use in a fixed classroom or boardroom installation, or on the road as a portable projection system, the XD600U has been engineered to provide outstanding images and exceptional functionality in a compact 3.6 kg design.

Mitsubishi Electric XD600U projectorWith a superb brightness of 4500 ANSI lumens, the XD600U is able to deliver clear, easy to view images even in the most well lit areas, while a host of different colour enhancing features such as BrilliantColor™ technology from Texas Instruments, a five segment colour wheel and the 2000:1 contrast ratio ensure accurate, vibrant reproduction of colour from data or video sources.

“There are certain key factors that buyers look for when choosing the right projector for a job. With permanent installations, brightness is usually the key factor, whereas for a portable solution it’s size and weight.” said Stuart Baker, Senior Manager of the Visual Information Systems division, Mitsubishi Electric. “This makes the XD600U an extremely versatile unit, as it satisfies the requirements for both fixed and portable solutions.”  

The XD600U boasts a range of other value adding features. A lamp life of up to 5,000 hours*1 coupled with a filter free design means reduced operating costs and less downtime for maintenance. A standby power consumption of less than 1W*2 further contributes to lower running costs.

Using the built-in RJ-45 port along with Mitsubishi Electric ProjectorView Global+ software, network administrators can remotely control and monitor multiple projectors over a dedicated LAN (local area network). The new Visual PA software gives an administrator the ability to broadcast important messages through any projectors connected to the LAN simultaneously. The XD600U also provides plenty of options for video and data source connection, including HDMI.

Other features include a high powered 1.5x zoom lens for better projection size at short distances, a built in 10W speaker with dual stereo mini-jacks and an “Audio-Mix) feature for simultaneous control of two separate audio sources, and a top loading lamp for easier replacement in ceiling mounted installations. The XD600U’s DLP™ engine has also been classed as “3-D Ready” by Texas Instruments.
