A guide to the range of projectors offered by Mitsubishi
A global leader in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment for use in all aspects of life, Mitsubishi creates a vast array of products that can be seen making a difference in the home, office and industry.
Mitsubishi manufacture a wide range of projectors, from home theater projectors to large installation projectors there is a projector to suit everyone's needs. Every projector comes filled with Mitsubishi's original image and data processing technology, some of the most state of the art in the industry today.
If you dream of having that authentic 'cinema' feeling in your own living room then Mitsubishi may be able to provide the perfect projector for your needs. Two models are offered in Mitsubishi's home cinema range. Both are designed for DLP high-resolution viewing in wide-screen (16:9) and Mitsubishi's Natural Color Matrix tm technology comes as standard. The HC2000 gives a healthy 700 ANSI lumens of brightness and uses WXGA (1280 x 720) resolution, when combined with a contrast ratio of 3600:1 provides ample detail and color clarity for almost anyone's needs. The HC3 uses SVGA (800 x 600) and has a brightness level of 1300 ANSI lumens and comes in a lightweight and compact shell weighing only 5.9 lbs, the HC2000 weighing comparatively heavy 17.2 lbs. The HC3 and HC2000 usually retail at $2795 and $10999 respectively.
The smallest units available in Mitsubishi's projector series are those in the micro mobile range. Weighing between 3.4 and 4.4 lbs these extremely lightweight and easy to carry projectors offer a surprisingly high level of performance. The two models available in this range are XD50U and XD70U. Both machines operate using XGA (1024 x 768) resolutions and have 1500 and 2000 ANSI lumens of brightness respectively. The XD50U costs $3995 and the XD70U costs $3495.
Above the micro mobile in both price and performance comes Mitsubishi's standard mobile projector range. Still lightweight, varying between 4.7 and 5.9 lbs, these portable projectors almost all use XGA resolution with most of the models compatible with SXGA (1280 x 1024). In terms of brightness these projectors provide between 1200 and 2000 ANSI lumens. Retailing between $2500 and $4500 these projectors give great value for money.
Mitsubishi's 'premium mobile' projector range are constructed using some of the electronic industry's most cutting-edge technology. Both models in this range are priced at around $5500 and come with impressive specifications. Compact and lightweight (6.6 lbs), both of these projectors work using XGA resolution and are SXGA compatible. The XD350U gives you 2500 ANSI lumens of brightness whilst the XD300U provides 2100.
If you require something a little more powerful then Mitsubishi's range of more permanent installation projectors may have what is required. Almost all use XGA resolution, often with UXGA (1600 x 1200) compatibility and have high ANSI lumen ratings between 2500 and 4700. These are the most expensive ranging in price between $8295 and $11995.
