Already leader of the pack when it comes to full high definition projectors, Mitsubishi Electric has now taken picture quality to even greater heights with the introduction of the HC6000 1080P home theatre projector.


  • Reon-VX processor with HQV™ (Hollywood Quality Video) technology
  • 15,000:1  Contrast Ratio, with IRIS Operation 
  • Native 1080P Widescreen resolution
  • BrilliantColour™ Technology
  • HDMI input
  • Thanks to its swift auto-iris algorithm, more commonly found in higher priced models, the HC6000 is capable of displaying images with contrast ratios up to a staggering 15,000:1, giving you the richest blacks, the brightest whites and the richest, most vivid spectrum of colours. Not only this, the swift auto-iris provides incredible light intensity control for seamless switching between light and dark scenes.

    Boasting the latest Reon-VX processor with HQV™ (Hollywood Quality Video) technology, the HC6000 displays smooth flowing images completely devoid of noise or jagged edges, guaranteeing you the excellent picture quality, especially from Blu-ray and HD-DVD video sources.

    Not only is the HC6000 one of the best projectors available on the market, it's also one of the quietest, with an almost silent 19dB noise level. The superb lamp life (up to 5000 hours*) and dust protector for the LCD panel also mean less maintenance, greatly lowering the cost of ownership.

    With all these features and more, it's easy to see why the HC6000 is the best choice for large screen entertainment in the comfort of your own home.

    Next-generation C2 Fine™ LCD panel for full high-definition projection

       C2 FINE™ LCD panel
    Traditionally, most LCD panels found in projectors have been manufactured with organic compounds that, with enough usage, will begin to break down over time, resulting in loss of picture quality and contrast. The next-generation C2 Fine™ LCD panel found in the HC6000 is comprised of inorganic compounds, so even after long hours of use, high picture quality is maintained with high contrast. This 1920 x 1080 dot full-HD resolution LCD panel can reproduce images of true high-definition quality.

    * When voltage is not being applied, the liquid crystal molecules are aligned vertically against the glass substrate, so there is no leakage of light as with conventional LCD systems, ensuring a deeper reproduction of black.

    Newly developed full-HD compatible lens

     ED (extra-low dispersion) glass lenses

    In order to display full-HD resolution, the HC6000 is equipped with a lens system comprised of 17 elements in 14 groups, including three ED (extra-low dispersion) lenses, which are more costly and deliver higher performance than conventional glass lenses. This lens system dramatically improves chromatic aberration and peripheral focus.



    New optical engine greatly increases installation flexibility

    To allow impressive big-screen images to be enjoyed even in a small room, the HC6000 is equipped with a 1.6x power zoom and focus. The projection distance for a 100-inch (16:9) picture is just 3.1 meters. In addition, there is also a power lens shift for moving the lens vertically and horizontally, greatly increasing installation flexibility.



    Silicon Optix Reon VX next-generation full 10-bit video processor

     Reon VX

    The HC6000 is equipped with the latest Reon VX chip produced by the US company Silicon Optix, a chip widely used on high-end AV equipment and which has earned an outstanding reputation among industry professionals. For DVD playback, the HC6000 is also equipped with a high-precision filter for pixel conversion processing and HQV noise reduction to reduce mosquito noise and blocking, ensuring high-quality picture reproduction.


    One of the industry's quietest projectors, just 19dBA

    Due to the redesigned cooling system and the use of a low-noise fan, operating noise has been reduced to an amazingly low 19dBA (low mode).

    Our newly developed Auto Iris for contrast ratios up to 15,000:1 

    Often found in higher priced models, the HC6000 features a swift auto-iris control algorithm, which offers high speed transitions between light and dark images, for faithful reproduction of scene sequences in your favourite films or shows. Combined with the HC6000's original contrast control, the auto-iris delivers contrasts up to 15,000:1, always ensuring you get the richest blacks, the brightest whites, and the most vivid colours in between.

    The optimum design for temperature control of the new colour light source lamp, as well as Mitsubishi Electric's unique lighting timing, have extended the useful life of the lamp to a maximum of 5000 hours.

    To prevent dust from adhering to the LCD panel, the LCD block is equipped with a dust protection cover.



    Side Loading Lamp

    Users can replace the lamp with out taking down the projector if ceiling mounted. This design simplifies lamp replacements without turning the projector around or over when mounted on the ceiling or resting on a shelf. This design helps to reduce overall cost of ownership and maintenance.
