Toshiba Unveils DLP BrilliantColor Mobile Projector

Irvine, Calif. - Toshiba’s Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., announced the company’s latest premier DLP BrilliantColor mobile projector with “extreme short projection” capabilities for greater luminance and larger images from a shorter distance.
The TDP-EX20U projector features Windows Vista networking capabilities, integrated wireless functionality for quick set-up and sequential presentations, and remote network management and multimedia connectivity. The compact TDP-EX20U projector is designed for education, mobile professionals, corporate customers, small-to-medium sized businesses, consumers, and Pro AV installation, for $1599.          
To enhance the learning experience at all levels of classroom instruction, business use, and digital home entertainment, the portable TDP-EX20U projector’s “extreme short projection” capabilities produce a remarkable 60-inch image from just three feet away. “Extreme short projection” produces more luminance or brightness because the image has a shorter distance to travel, reducing the amount of ambient light that can harm image quality.    
The TDP-EX20U projects fine text and images with 2,300 ANSI lumens and a DLP BrilliantColor display. The DLP BrilliantColor technology uses up to six separate colors for a wider variety of accurate, vibrant colors that won’t fade over time.
The projector also features an XGA 1024x768 native resolution, contrast ratio of 2000:1, and the option to deliver “PC-free” presentations with a USB thumb drive by storing the presentation in JPEG format and connecting to the USB port.          
The built-in IEEE 802.11g wireless functionality of the TDP-EX20U delivers fast set-up time and enables presenters to connect wireless notebooks to the projector. The Toshiba TDP-EX20U projector’s network capability also allows IT administrators to remotely control the projector over a network and receive e-mail notification via SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) for issues related to temperature, fan, and lamp status.          
Toshiba’s HDTV/DTV-compatible TDP-EX20U integrates data, video, and audio features necessary for high-end multimedia presentations. The projector comes packaged in a sleek, high-tech casing with multiple computer inputs (two RGB 15-pin), two video inputs for composite and S-video, two components (shared with computer inputs), one-watt stereo speaker, type A USB port, and wired and wireless connectivity options.
Other features unique to the TDP-EX20U include variable audio out, digital zoom, and auto set, which allows users to automatically synchronize the settings between PCs and the projector.
