For the ultimate Hollywood movie experience in your living room, the Mitsubishi HC5000 is the only home theatre projector you need to look at. Running at a native 1080p high definition (1920 x 1080) resolution, the HC5000 produces amazingly realistic images that jump off the screen.

HC5000 Full HD projector from Mitsubishi Electric

Mitsubishi Electric projector development team have created the HC5000 using the best technology available. The next-generation C2 Fine™ LCD panel reproduces top quality images in HD resolution whilst maintaining high contrast levels, and the newly developed HD compatible lens ensures the images are projected perfectly to the screen. The Mitsubishi designed auto iris is capable of sharpening images for contrast ratios as high as 10,000:1.

The HC5000 incorporates the latest video processing chip from Silicon Optix, including its Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) technology. HQV features full 10-bit processing and superb I/P (interlaced to progressive) conversion and scaling. Combined with HDMI and DVI connections, that means there is nothing lost in translation from your highest quality video source to the screen.

Not only is the HC5000 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 a HC5000 in your home, you will never need to go to the theatres again.


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 HC5000 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 HC5000 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 HC5000 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 HC5000 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 HC5000 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 19 dB

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

Mitsubishi Electric unique auto iris for high contrast of up to 10,000:1

The HC5000 is equipped with an auto iris featuring a proprietary Mitsubishi Electric aperture design. A unique algorithm enables detection of colour information in addition to conventional brightness information, so the colour information in dark scenes can be vividly reproduced without getting lost.

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.


HDMI and DVI Connectors

Allows for a true digital connection to your HD equipment.
