The new FL7000U is Mitsubishi’s first ultra-bright 1080p HD projector for commercial, home theater, and education installations. Projecting 5000 lumens with a 1000:1 contrast ratio, the FL7000U uses three 1.1in. 3LCD inorganic panels. It is ideal in larger rooms that require full high definition (1920x1080) for HD video or applications such as medical imaging, CAD/CAM designs, and geospatial mapping. It includes a DVI connector with an HDMI-to-DVI adapter for a wider range of HD connectivity options, and it is available in a black or white outer cabinet. br />▪ Mitsubishi | www.mitsubishi-presentations.com

The VP504F features an integrated Silicon Optix REON HQV chip for sharp and detailed imaging, plus advanced noise reduction that removes noise and artifacts caused by signal compression from cable and satellite providers. The chip can process two full channels of HD or SD, which allows users to achieve full resolution with picture-in-picture images.
