Transform your living room into a lavish theatre space with the HC1100 from Mitsubishi Electric. Featuring state of the art technology, this high definition projector generates stunning images with rich black tones and crystal clear picture quality.

The HC1100 has all the quality features you'd expect from a Mitsubishi home theatre projector, such as a high contrast of 3000:1 for exquisite dark and black images, a newly developed colour wheel for accurate reproduction of natural colour tones and a low fan noise level of just 25dBA for distraction free movie viewing.

With all these features and more, the HC1100 will take your home theatre experience to new heights.    

Newly Developed Panel Driver (DDP3020)

The formatter board is equipped with a combined full 10-bit processing I/P converter and scaler, and a 12-bit floating point digital gamma controller. The result is approximately four times the number of gradations of a conventional 8-bit model, so even skin tones are faithfully reproduced.

High-speed LVDS (low voltage differential signal) drive

A high-speed memory (RLDRAM) with improved data transmission efficiency, and a high-speed LVDS drive provide subtle gradations of expression rivalling high-end models.

State-of-the-Art DMD panel (DC3) providing a high contrast ratio of 3000:1

The HC1100 is equipped with the latest DMD panel (D3) featuring an expanded mirror operation angle of 12 degrees. In addition to its exceptional light usage efficiency, this new panel's performance is further enhanced by the new motor-driven iris lens optical engine, achieving a high contrast ratio of 3000:1. The variable lens aperture optimally adjusts picture quality according to image content. Bright scenes are clear and vibrant, while dark scenes have subtle gradations and sharp black reproduction.

10-bit I/P conversion circuit for fewer "jaggies"

A full 10-bit I/P conversion circuit significantly reduces noise, for smooth, beautiful images with fewer "jaggies" (stair-like lines).

New 10-bit



A new colour processing algorithm and system-level colour signal image enhancement processing provides bright, vibrant reproduction of the neutral colours commonly found in videos and natural scenery.

D65 light standard (colour temperature: 6500K) reproduction

For more realistic colour reproduction of the visual source, the HC1100 is equipped with a colour wheel that reproduces the colour temperature considered to comprise standard light - D65 (6500 K).

Motor-driven iris lens with 2-step opening and closing

In order to optimize the incident light transmitted to the DMD chip, the HC3100 is equipped with a convenient motor-driven system for adjusting the lens aperture; open or closed can be selected with the remote control.                            

2-3 pull-down for high precision conversion of film sources

The HC1100 features 2-3 pull-down to significantly reduce "jaggies"in interlaced (480i or 576i) movie sources. In addition, the combination of several functions enables each mode -- either high brightness or high picture quality -- to be easily selected according to the image.


 User Gamma Correction

In addition to the 3 modes of sports, video, and cinema, for times when the normal brightness function cannot address user preferences such as a desire to increase black level reproduction, brighten neutral colours, or suppress highlights when watching a movie, the gamma correction function makes it possible to independently fine-adjust only the black level, neutral colour, or white gradations.


Quiet operation of just 25dB and a long lamp life

Operating noise has been reduced to just 25dB by employing a low-noise fan and redesigning the shape of the colour wheel holder and lamp fins. Moreover, the optimal temperature control design used for the 200W light source lamp extends the lamp's useful life to a maximum of 3000 hours*.

Centre lens design and front exhaust for installation flexibility

In order to make it easier to align the projection angle with the centre of the screen, the lens is positioned in the centre of the unit. Hot air is expelled through a front exhaust for further installation flexibility.

Front of unit

HDCP*1 compatible HDMI*2 input terminals

The HC1100 is equipped with HDMI input terminals, the next-generation interface standard. Connecting the projector to a DVD player or other device with HDMI output makes it possible to take advantage of the characteristics of DLP full digital processing. Digital processing of all signals with no analogue conversion ensures that the image is projected with no deterioration. Colour gain control at the time of input is also possible. (when there is a colour difference)

*1 HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is a copyright protection function for digital interfaces.
*2 HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a next-generation digital interface standard that features additional functions for home electronics, such as the copyright protection function HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), while maintaining compatibility with DVI (Digital Visual Interface) display interface technology.

Adjustable overscan

The overscan rate for images on DVDs and other media can be adjusted between 90% and 100% in one-percent increments (when a HDMI component is connected).

Trigger Terminal

The HC1100 is equipped with a screen trigger that synchronizes raising and lowering of an electrically-operated screen with the projector power switch, so projection can begin at the touch of a button.

Vertical and horizontal trapezoidal distortion correction

Digital trapezoidal distortion correction corrects screen distortion within ±40 steps vertically and ±25 steps horizontally (one step is equivalent to approximately one degree).

Backlit remote control with direct image quality adjustment

The image quality can be directly adjusted and the motor-driven iris opened or closed using the remote control. The remote control is also backlit for easy operation even in a dark room.






*Maximum of 3000 hours at low mode and 2000 hours at standard mode.Lamp life is defined as the average time until brightness is reduced by half; it is not a guaranteed life for all lamps.Lamp life will vary considerably depending on the usage environment and conditions, and whether regular maintenance such as cleaning is performed.
