Latest Mitsubishi Electric Projector Makes Presentations A Breeze


SYDNEY 17 January, 2007 – Mitsubishi Electric’s latest data projector will help make your next presentation standout with its widescreen 16:9 display. The WL639U portable WXGA projector has a viewing area of 1.3 times wider than conventional projectors, removing the need to scroll left to right. Depending on the applications, users can screen two windows at once. The widescreen resolution also gives this projector the ability to play DVD’s at full screen without the need for compression. Boasting a high brightness of 3500 ANSI Lumens, the WL639U is perfect for conferences, meeting rooms and lecture theatres.

The projector has a low fan noise of 29dBA so you won’t have to raise your voice to be heard while you are presenting and is also network ready, making it even easier to start a presentation via remote management from your laptop or PC.

“Meetings and presentations are often held in external locations so it is important that a data projector is portable and light”, said Thomas Seeto, Director, Mitsubishi Electric. “We also feel that quality is just as important on a data projector as it is on a home theatre projector so we have ensured that the fan noise won’t drown you out and that light and colour in the room won’t wash out a projected image.”

Colour Wall Correction enables you to maintain correct colours even when projecting on coloured walls. By selecting the colour of the wall in the setup menu, the projector will simply adjust its colour tone accordingly.

Real-life colours are captured using the latest 3LCD technology by matching hue variations in the colour spectrum. The colour is consistent across the screen due to its valuable colour enhancer and 3D Colour Uniformity features.

One of the projector’s most appealing features is that it is not limited to one position and can easily be re-located and set-up using digital keystone correction. The projector also has enhanced security settings with its anti-theft anchor and prevention of unauthorised use through the user-selectable password which locks out menu functions.

Lamp life is excellent at up to 4000 hours and replacement is very easy as the lamp can be removed from the side of the unit.
