Projectors

Powerful portable business & home theater projector systems

Advances in projector image and information processing technologies have led to the manufacture of powerful portable business and home theater projector systems. These projectors are easy to transport and operate, and that can use electronically stored information, even motion-picture video, for impressive, effective business presentations and home theater use.

Here, we’ll introduce you to the basic business and home theater projector technologies that make up our portable projector lineup, suggest some example uses, and explain some of the features that you might want to consider when purchasing a projector.

Basic Projector Technology – How Projectors Work

The operation of today’s business and home theater projector systems is based on receiving an electric signal (either analog or digital) from a data source (computer, VCR, DVD, etc.) transforming the signal into an image, and projecting the image onto a screen. To do this, the signal must first be converted into a digital signal. If sent as analog, it is passed through an analog-to-digital signal converter. The digital signal is now ready to be processed into an image for projection. Currently, there are two technologies used in business and home theater projectors to display images: liquid-crystal display (LCD Projector) and Digital Light Processing (DLP Projector).

LCD Projector

  • Here, the digital signal is processed to polysilicon panels. A light source is passed through a series of dichroic mirrors to separate the various color wavelengths and then through the polysilicon panels where activated pixels process the light into a final compiler before projection through the lens and onto the screen.

DLP Projector

  • Here, the digital signal is processed to a DMDT chip. The light source is passed through a color wheel and onto the DMDT chip, and is then reflected off the chip through the lens and onto the screen. The introduction of this rather new technology has led to the further miniaturization of business and home theater projector systems.

Example Uses – From Home Theater to Conference Room

Advances in circuitry miniaturization have enabled business and home theater projector systems to grow increasingly smaller in size while maintaining the power and performance of their predecessors. The current technological breakthroughs in the projector industry are paving the way for even smaller, lighter projector models with true mobility that allows one to use virtually any location as a presentation venue.

Features to Consider When Buying a Projector – What’s Best for You?

The projector’s size and weight are important. But there are other items you should consider when selecting the best portable business or home theater projector for you needs. These projector features include sufficient image brightness (ANSI lumen rating), connectivity (single or multiple data source ports) and functions incorporated for improved performance and operation ease. Once you know the degree of mobility and level of performance required for your presentation needs, the decision as to which projector is best for you is easy.

sRGB

Advanced image and color enhancement technologies, most only available in Mitsubishi projectors, provide superior image and color reproduction. Whether showing still photographs and illustrations or replaying two motion-picture clips simultaneously, high picture and color quality are assured.

sRGB (Standard Red, Green and Blue) technology was developed to ensure uniform reproduction of color coordinates regardless of the projector or other display device used. Mitsubishi Electric’s sRGB Mode matches hue variations in the color spectrum accurately so that colors are reproduced exactly as they appear in real life.

Natural Color Matrix – Offers the Best Color in LCD Projection

Advanced image and color enhancement technologies, most only available in Mitsubishi projectors, provide superior image and color reproduction. Whether showing still photographs and illustrations or replaying two motion-picture clips simultaneously, high picture and color quality are assured.

What is DLP® Technology

Digital Light Processing® is the world’s only all-digital display chip and a key ingredient in the best digital projectors available today. DLP® technology uses an optical semiconductor to recreate source material with a fidelity analog systems cannot match. Our Flash demo will show you how it works.
