Irvine, Calif. — Toshiba’s digital products division launched Tuesday a DLP projector targeting large-venue presentation applications.
Models TDP-WX5400U ($6,299 suggested retail) incorporates the company’s DynamicBlack technology to boost contrast and black-level performance, the company said.
The image is powered by Texas Instruments’ DLP BrilliantColor technology and includes dual-lamps, an optional interchangeable color wheel, wide resolution, five optional lenses, automatic vertical and horizontal keystone correction, filter-free design, enhanced security features and extensive connectivity options.
With the dual-lamp feature engaged users can boost brightness levels to 5,400 ANSI lumens, or 2,700 ANSI lumens when just one lamp is on. The features is said to eliminate down time and interruption if a lamp burns out during a presentation.
The interchangeable color wheel option is said to maximize the projector’s color or brightness in a variety of display settings. The projector is equipped with two interchangeable color wheels — a six-segment color wheel (RGBCMY) and a standard four-segment color wheel (RGBW).
The wider resolution feature is offered at WXGA 1,280 by 800 pixels with a 16:10 aspect ratio to offer more viewing and work space than a traditional 4:3 aspect ratio.
Automatic vertical and horizontal keystone correction instantly projects a square image even when the projector is placed at a steep offset angle: +/- 40 degrees automatic vertical keystone correction and +/- 35 degrees automatic horizontal keystone correction.
Connectivity includes DVI-D (with HDCP: high-bandwidth digital content protection), RGB (D-sub 15-pin), five BNC, component video, audio-in (for video and PC), S-Video and composite video.
Also included are two three-watt stereo speakers, one RGB (D-sub 15-pin), and audio output, one mini-jack for screen trigger, one RS-232 (D-sub 9-pin) and RJ45 for control.
Toshiba backs the TDP-WX5400U is with a three-year limited warranty.
