Mitsubishi Digital Electronics is readying a series of portable projectors that weigh less than 8 pounds and emit more than 4,000 lumens. The XD600U, the first in the company’s new family, makes its debut at InfoComm 09. The XGA-resolution projector displays 4,500 lumens of brightness and has a lamp estimated to last up to 5,000 hours under normal operating conditions in low mode, according to the company.
“Our XD600U projector ushers in a new line of projectors for us that round out our new portable high-brightness product line,” said Wayne Kozuki, product manager of Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, in a statement.
The XD600U is the company’s first projector designed with the latest DDP2230 and DLP Link chipset, making it 3D-ready. The projector supports 3D viewing when users input and display their 3D content and watch the display with optional DLP Link-compatible 3D glasses.
The new projector is intended for both education users and business professionals, according to the company. It has a built-in 10-watt loudspeaker and audio mix capability, closed captioning decoder, and a visual public addressing feature. It also includes an RJ-45 port for remote operation and management over a LAN, WAN, or the Internet.
Simultaneous real-time Message Display via the new Visual PA feature allows an administrator to remotely create and distribute messages to projectors connected to the LAN. The XD600U also offers dual 15-pin computer inputs, as well as S-video and RCA video inputs, and HDMI inputs for digital sources.
Designed with two separate 3.5 mm audio inputs and two RCA audio inputs, the projector also has a 3.5 mm variable audio output used to control volume levels. There is also a built-in audio mixer so the projector can project audio from two sources simultaneously, such as a DVD and a wireless microphone. When the loudspeaker isn’t in use, the XD600U has a noise level of 29 dBA in low mode.
The XD600U is scheduled to be available in Q3 2009.
