ANAHEIM, Calif. — Fujitsu will unveil two enhanced Plasmavision SlimScreen video display panels and a multimedia LCD projector at this week’s InfoComm 2000 here, the company said.
The new plasma displays — models PDS-4209 and PDS-4214 — are said to “incorporate many of the technologies used in the company’s flagship PDS-4221 and PDS-4222 display monitors at a considerably lower cost.”
Both are multisource-capable and will display signals in analog and digital HDTV and standard definition scan formats, but produce somewhat lower brightness levels than the current flagship HDTV PDPs. Both have 42-inch screen sizes with 16:9 widescreen aspect ratios and are said to be suited for use with computers as well as television sources.
The PDS-4214 carries a $9,999 suggested retail. It produces emission levels suitable for home theater applications and offers a resolution of 852 x 480. Model PDS-4209 carries a $7,999 suggested retail and has emission levels rated for commercial applications.
The new LCD projector — model LPF-7200 — is billed as a portable, multimedia model capable of 2500 ANSI lumens of brightness. It is said to be suited to either business or home theater applications, displaying high-resolution video source material via component video digital and analog video inputs, including HDTV and computer sources at either SVGA or SXGA levels.
The projector will produce screen sizes from 30 inches to 25 feet and includes a 3D Y/C comb filter for NTSC sources and a keystone correction function. It will carry a $14,999 suggested retail price.
