Mitsubishi Electric Can Display the Cloud With WD390U-EST Extreme Short Throw 
Projector Shown at FETC Education Conference in Orlando 
No Computer Needed -- Simple, Easy Connectivity Transforms Education
and Presentation Market While Saving Customers Time and Money 
ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 --  As one of the world's
leading display manufacturers, Mitsubishi Electric is the first to
take projection to the next level with its WD390U-EST projector: now
content can be presented with no computer attached. Shown for the
first time at the Florida Educational Technology Conference in
Orlando, January 29-31, 2013 in Booth #1113, the Mitsubishi
WD390U-EST cloud projector is poised to change the way users select a
projector for their classrooms. 
Called a "cloud projector," the Mitsubishi WD390U-EST uses its
built-in, thin client function to serve as a dynamic display device.
And because a computer isn't needed for new builds or technology
upgrades, school districts and businesses adapting this new kind of
projector can save money in these tough economic times.  
Projector industry experts recognize the exceptional benefits this
new technology offers: "By making it easy to get a document from your
networked computer, server, smart phone, or other mobile device to
the projection screen, the WD390U-EST provides PC-free projection
that is both comprehensive and easy to use," said Bill Livolsi,
Associate Editor, Projector Central. 
Users simply log onto their network and begin displaying content in
seconds, whether from a local server, the internet or the cloud,
giving teachers and presenters access to files through the projector
itself. As long as the new WD390U-EST extreme short throw projector
is connected and logged on to a network, a Bluetooth-enabled keyboard
and mouse, users can access content on a server, with such storage
now referred to as "cloud content."  
No-fuss projection also means teachers don't have to lug computers
around, connect a computer to a projector and hope there are no
technical issues, or carry presentation materials with them. School
districts can store and distribute standardized teaching materials
and content, and teachers can access these course materials in a
snap, saving time for both teachers and IT professionals. 
"Teachers have a 
unique set of issues when they present in the
classroom and shouldn't have to worry about technical problems when
uploading their lessons or run late because of technical
difficulties," said Wayne Kozuki, product manager, Mitsubishi
Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. "Our new WD390U-EST solves
all those problems by making it really easy -- teachers simply log on
to the network, access their lessons and begin. This also is a great
benefit for standardizing instructional technology and materials on a
school-wide or district level. It's the logical next step in
presentation technology." 
By using free SidePad and WiFi Doc applications, the WD390U-EST
projector also supports BYOD (Bring Your Own Display) initiatives
with flexibility. Teachers and presenters can use a mobile device
such as a tablet or a smart phone to access, mirror and control a
computer that is connected to the projector and the same Wi-Fi
network, and present Powerpoint(R), Excel(R), Word(R), TXT, PPD and
JPG files from their iOS or Android devices directly through the
projector. For the first time, presenters are untethered from their
computers and can control and present from any location within the
classroom or meeting space. Both the SidePad and Wifi Doc apps are
free downloads via the Apple(R) App store or Google Play. 
Using Texas Instruments DLP(R) technology, the new projector boasts
3000 lumens of brightness as well as one of the longest estimated
lamp lives available -- up to 6000* hours in low mode. And in a
continued nod to cost savings, a high-power, 10-watt speaker with
variable audio output is built in so even when the projector is in
stand-by mode, the speaker can still be used, eliminating the cost
and necessity of external amplifiers and speakers.  
Mitsubishi's WD390U-EST projector is built with a specially crafted
lens that provides excellent ultra short-throw focus performance, and
can project a 70-inch (diagonal) wide-screen WXGA image from less
than 23-inches away. Teachers and presenters can move in front of the
image without creating distracting shadows on the screen. 
The WD390U-EST offers HDMI(TM) support as well as easy set-up options
for multiple video inputs. It has an RS232 connector and a built-in
RJ45 input that offers plug-and-play connectivity with third-party
remote management products such as those made by Crestron and AMX, as
well as Mitsubishi's ProjectorView(TM) Global+.  
The projector comes with Mitsubishi's three-year limited warranty on
parts and labor, and a one-year limited warranty on the lamp; terms
and conditions apply. Like all Mitsubishi data projectors, these new
projectors 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 continues to bring new technological innovation to its
products," said James Chan, vice president, marketing, Mitsubishi
Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. "This new cloud projector is
just the latest in a long line of Mitsubishi firsts." 
The Mitsubishi WD390U-EST will be available in March at a competitive
price. Additional models will be announced throughout the first half
of 2013.
