Toshiba Announces Extreme Short-throw Projector
Sep 27, 2007 12:00 PM
Toshiba’s Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, announced the company’s latest DLP BrilliantColor mobile projector with “extreme short projection” capabilities for greater luminance and larger images from a shorter distance. The TDP-EX20U projector features Windows Vista networking capabilities, integrated wireles functionality for quick setup and sequential presentations, as well as remote network management and extensive multimedia connectivity.
The compact and stylish TDP-EX20U projector is designed for education, mobile professionals, corporate customers, small-to-medium sized businesses, consumers and pro AV installation, all for an estimated single unit price of $1,599.
To enhance the learning experience at all levels of classroom instruction, business use, and digital home entertainment, the portable TDP-EX20U projector’s short-throw projection capabilities produce a 60in. image from just 3ft. away. This short throw produces more luminance or brightness because the image has a shorter distance to travel, reducing the amount of ambient light that can harm image quality, according to the company.
“There isn’t a better short-throw projector on the market at this low price,” says Sam Malik, director of projector sales and marketing, Toshiba Digital Products Division. “Other projectors with short-throw capabilities cannot match the TDP-EX20U’s price, value-added features and portability.” The TDP-EX20U projector can be ceiling mounted, and unlike conventional projectors, the short-throw technology eliminates eye glare and the problem of screen shadowing when the presenter is close to the screen. When used as a portable projector, the technology enables users to present at various table heights, such as at the end of a desk, conference table, or even a low coffee table.
The TDP-EX20U projects fine text and images with an impressive 2300 ANSI lumens and a DLP BrilliantColor display. The DLP BrilliantColor technology uses up to six separate colors: red, blue, green, cyan, yellow, and magenta for a wider variety of accurate, vibrant colors that won’t fade over time. BrilliantColor technology enables a 50-percent increase in the brightness of colors. The projector also features an XGA 1024x768 native resolution, contrast ratio of 2000:1, and offers on-the-go professionals the option to deliver PC-free presentations with a USB thumb drive by simply storing the presentation in JPEG format and connecting to the USB port.
Users can also expect seamless presentations with remote network management from this projector. The TDP-EX20U can be networked and controlled remotely via a wired LAN connection, which is password protected for increased security. Due to the TDP-EX20U projector’s Windows Vista network capabilities, presenters can wirelessly transfer JPEG files from a notebook with ease for slide show presentations or images embedded in documents. The built-in IEEE 802.11g wireless functionality of the TDP-EX20U delivers fast setup time and enables presenters to easily connect their wireless notebooks to the projector from anywhere in the room, and deliver sequential presentations without the need for cables. The Toshiba TDP-EX20U projector’s network capability also allows IT administrators to remotely control the projector over a network and receive e-mail notification via SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) for issues related to temperature, fan, and lamp status.
HDTV/DTV compatible, Toshiba’s TDP-EX20U integrates data, video, and audio features necessary for high-end multimedia presentations. The projector comes packaged case with multiple computer inputs (two RGB 15-pin), two video inputs for composite and S-video, two components (shared with computer inputs), 1W stereo speaker, type A USB port, and both wired and wireless connectivity options. Other features include variable audio out, digital zoom, and auto set, which allows users to automatically synchronize the settings between their PCs and the projector.
