Mitsubishi Announces XL1550U/XL2550U Installation Projectors

Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division has announced its XL1550U and XL2550U; two new XGA (1024 x 768 pixel) resolution LCD projectors intended for installation in large auditoriums, classrooms, worship halls, churches and conference rooms. Equipped with a variety of optional lenses, these high-brightness projectors can support short throw and zoom lenses to fit any room configuration.

Fan noise is barely perceptible in Mitsubishi's XL1550U projector; at only 22dBA (low mode) audience members can easily give their undivided attention to a presenter, without this distraction. It projects 3100 ANSI lumens for bright video and images even in well-lit venues. Designed with light source lamp control, the projector supports a lamp life of up to 5000 hours in low mode. This feature can dramatically reduce overall cost of ownership by decreasing the frequency of lamp replacements.

The XL2550U blasts 4000 ANSI lumens of brightness for large venue operation and offers up to 4000 hours of lamp life in low mode. The projector has been developed with Mitsubishi's new BrightEra LCD panels, which include an inorganic orientation film and vertical orientation liquid crystal that improves reliability of light resistance. Its new panel drive system solves distortion that can be caused by pixel line voltage gaps, resulting in a high-pixel aperture ratio that increases light efficiency and creates clear, consistent images across the LCD panel and the projection screen.

A side-loading lamp in both projectors makes lamp replacement fast and simple. Users don't have to remove the whole projector from its mount; they just extract the old lamp from the side and replace it, saving time and money. Network management is also simple and easy with RJ45 connectivity for LAN asset management and control, while an RS232c connection offers effortless integration with third-party control systems. An anti-theft security anchor, password menu lock and programmable splash screen are included to deter unapproved removal.

Both projectors support sRGB, a system of color spaces that defines tone, saturation and brightness to make color expressions from all imaging equipment consistent from on-computer presentation to projected image. A picture-in-picture function supports dual imaging, helping make lectures and presentations more dynamic and interesting.
