Toshiba unveils new digital projector

Toshiba's Digital Products Division (DPD) recently unveiled the high-performance, lightweight and value-priced TDP-S80U/ SW80U series projectors. Designed with mobile professionals, teachers and small business users in mind, Toshiba's new DLP-based projectors deliver sharp images and rich colors in any presentation environment from bright auditoriums to dimly lit conference rooms.

Featuring 2000 ANSI lumens, SVGA 800x600 resolution with DLP technology and 2000:1 contrast ratio, Toshiba's TDP-S80U/SW80U series projectors provide the power and crispness to deal with a wide variety of challenging lighting situations. The new projectors also feature Natural Color Enhancer color correction circuitry to deliver greater image quality and color saturation for sharper images.

For added flexibility, the TDP-SW80U projector features integrated 802.11b/g wireless functionality, allowing faster set-up time and presentation delivery by eliminating the need for additional cables. The projector also includes a PC card slot, enabling mobile presenters to deliver "PC-free" presentations by storing them on a type II PC storage card.

Toshiba's TDP-S80U/ SW80U series projectors also include a suite of multimedia features and connectivity options such as composite, component and S-video inputs. Users can easily connect a video player to the projectors to enhance presentations with live action video. The projectors can also be used recreationally by connecting them to gaming consoles or for watching movies, allowing viewers to experience large-size entertainment images in their living rooms.

In addition, the TDP-S80U/SW80U series features a special monitor output connector enabling users to view slides from an external display while also enabling them to see what is on the screen. This is meant to allow presenters to keep and hold eye contact with participants, maintain a smooth flow and gauge audience reactions during presentations. The units also include audio in/out functionality, allowing users to add sound to presentations.
