Mitsubishi’s New Interactive Projectors Announced

Mitsubishi Electric First to Offer Interactive Mirror-less Short-Throw 3D Projectors with Dual Pen Support

IRVINE, Calif., January 24, 2011 — Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. introduced its first mirror-less interactive projector design that provides dual pen support in two new 3D-ready models. When using light pens, two students or presenters can write, draw, or point independently on any solid surface, including a projection screen, passive white board or any smooth, white or light-colored wall, making teaching with technology more interesting for students.

Mitsubishi’s new interactive projectors offer several benefits:
• No calibration required: the interactive pen communicates directly with the projected image, so set-up is quick and easy. Teachers spend time teaching instead of dealing with calibration.
• No special screen needed: users can turn any solid screen or wall into an interactive surface, presenting up to a 180-inch diagonal image with the WD385U-EST. The interactive surface can be as wide and as tall as a teacher’s arms can reach, making the best use of space in the classroom.
• Maximum portability: because interactivity is not fixed onto a traditional white board, instructors can take these advanced teaching techniques with them from classroom to classroom, which can be more cost-effective for budget-strapped school districts.
• Engaging presentations: teachers and students can interact either directly on the projected surface or standing away from it. This flexibility makes lessons and content easier for students to retain.

“When classrooms are equipped with great technology, the learning experience becomes more engaging,” said Wayne Kozuki, product manager, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “It makes learning more fun and therefore, more productive. I wish we had one of these in my classroom when I was growing up.”

Mitsubishi’s wide-screen format WD385U-EST and XGA-resolution XD365U-EST 3D-ready projectors support single or dual pen functionality when used with interactive teaching software like Mitsubishi’s optional bundle, WizTeach® from Qwizdom, among others. Students and teachers can simply and easily make annotations, draw, write or use the pen as a mouse, on almost any solid surface.

Like its other extreme short-throw projectors, Mitsubishi’s WD385U-EST and XD365U-EST projectors are built with a specially crafted lens that provides excellent short-throw focus performance, and can project a 70-inch (diagonal) image from less than 23-inches away. These new models help prevent shadows on a screen or white board, which can be distracting during interactive sessions. Teachers and presenters can move in front of the image without getting blinded by the projected light path.

Each projector is currently available and comes with one interactive pen. Additional pens are available directly from Mitsubishi for $139. Included with the projectors are Mitsubishi’s three-year limited warranty on parts and labor, and a one-year limited warranty on the lamp. Like all Mitsubishi data projectors, these are covered by the Express Replacement Assistance (ERA) Program, a comprehensive nationwide service that offers next business-day replacement* for down units that are under warranty.

“Mitsubishi took its time to develop the best interactive projectors available, and we’re the first manufacturers to offer dual-pen capabilities,” said James Chan, vice president, marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “And we’re getting very positive feedback from the field. We’re very excited to offer this new solution with our extreme short-throw projectors.”

Narrow-Bezel, 55-inch LCD MDT551S Monitor Expands Mitsubishi Electric’s High-End Flat Panel Display Options

IRVINE, Calif., November 8, 2011 — Mitsubishi Electric announces the release of its narrow-bezel, 55-inch monitor (MDT551S). This latest addition to its high-end line is designed for video conferencing, gaming, retail kiosks, digital signage and other applications needing robust, long-lasting static or interactive display monitors. Mitsubishi’s new MDT551S brings video to life with dynamic and customizable advertising, exciting welcome messages, and vital, up-to-the-minute news and information. Its sleek, modern, brushed aluminum design will also stand out in any conference room as a focal point of digital display.

“Our new narrow bezel monitor makes any display more attractive and vibrant,” said Brandon Tarnow, brand manager, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “Mitsubishi has the right size monitor to fit most applications or locations.”

Installation versatility is engineered into every monitor: Inputs range from DVI-D, D-Sub 15 and HDMI™ as well as DisplayPort™. The MDT551S features an optional CAT5 receiver and transmitter box, and uses Mitsubishi’s own networking software for remote management. It offers cutting-edge data processing and technology in an attractive modern design for flexibility and reliability.

The MDT551S streamlines installation and reduces the number of necessary components with two built-in, 10-watt speakers for on-the-fly audio. Connectivity options include DisplayPort™ for clear, crisp video and audio transmission over a single cable, and RJ45 LAN support, so a connected monitor can be controlled from remote locations over a network.

Mitsubishi’s new MDT551S monitor also offers optional single- and multi-touch screen interactivity, one of the easiest PC interfaces to use. With the optional touch screen interface, the monitor recognizes up to 36 distinct actuation points, including touch, gesturing, squeezing and pinching. This makes computing resources more available to untrained or disabled computer users.

The 55-inch monitor also eliminates cable clutter with an optional CAT5 receiver that keeps image quality consistent, even with cable lengths of up to 500 feet (150 meters). Video and RS-485 serial-control signals can be simultaneously delivered over the same CAT5 cable, eliminating the need for a separate, distance-limiting serial-control cable. Users can also daisy chain up to three monitors, making content delivery easy and more efficient.

“Mitsubishi makes robust, reliable LCD monitors that are used in a wide range of environments,” said James Chan, vice president, marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “We listened to market feedback and created the narrow-bezel 55-inch to give even more installation potential to our channel partners.”
