Mitsubishi Electric Introduces LaserVue Projectors That Let You Wave "Goodbye" to Lamp Replacements

Mitsubishi Electric Introduces LaserVue Projectors That Let You Wave "Goodbye" 
to Lamp Replacements 
ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 --   Mitsubishi Electric's
new LaserVue(R) family of lamp-free, environmentally-conscious
portable projectors create brilliant images with accurate colors
using a technologically advanced light engine unlike any other hybrid
projector on the market today. Eco-conscious teachers and presenters
will see Mitsubishi's first new hybrid projector at FETC (Florida
Education Technology Conference) at the Orlando Convention Center
this week in Booth #1113.  
As a leading supplier of the world's laser light engines for display
devices, Mitsubishi draws on its expertise to design and build this
new line of lamp-free projectors. To produce the red-green-blue
lighting elements required to form all display colors, Mitsubishi
LaserVue projectors use one pure red LED and up to 34 pure blue laser
diodes of varying strengths and wavelengths, and a solid-colored
phosphor wheel that emits green light.  
Unlike other light engine designs in the market today, some of the
blue laser diodes are diverted to excite phosphors on this
single-segment wheel. This creates a clean, clear green, eliminating
color breaking or rainbow effects that are sometimes observed in
similar projectors. Those that use dual or multi-segment color
phosphor wheels often attempt to boost brightness at the expense of
color accuracy. Mitsubishi's new design creates bright, truer blues
and purer greens -- rich and accurate colors -- using a
single-segment wheel. 
Mitsubishi's new line of LaserVue projectors consists of three
portable models: the NW31U-EST WXGA (1280 x 800 resolution) extreme
short throw model will be the first to become available in April,
followed shortly by two standard throw models: the NW30U WXGA (1280 x
800 resolution) and the NF32U full high-definition, 1080p resolution
projector. They burst with 2500 lumens, 3000 lumens and 3000 lumens
respectively. Each of these new LaserVue projectors have a light
source estimated to last up to 20,000 hours of performance in
standard mode, so teachers and presenters can expect many hours of
use with no worries about changing lamps. 
With this lamp-free design, schools districts, universities and even
businesses can ex
pect to save time and money over the life of the
projector. And in a continued nod to cost savings, a high-power
10-watt speaker with variable audio output, and a built-in audio pass
through means that even when the projector is in stand-by mode, the
speaker can still be used. This eliminates the cost and necessity of
external amplifiers and speakers. 
These Mitsubishi LaserVue projectors also give presenters access to
their content in new and different ways -- from mobile devices, the
cloud, the internet, a networked server and a traditional computer
source. With its built-in "thin client" technology, the Mitsubishi
LaserVue projectors don't even need a computer. When connected to a
networked server, they become dynamic display devices where users can
simply log onto their network directly from the projector, gain
access to content from the server and begin displaying it in seconds.
Users can opt to skip the traditional steps of physically connecting
their computer to the projector or manage any necessary projection
function keys.  
"Our LaserVue projectors lead the trend in using new technologies,"
said Wayne Kozuki, product manager, Mitsubishi Electric Visual
Solutions America, Inc. "With a lamp-free design and direct access to
the cloud, we hope to change the way people present in the classroom
and the boardroom." 
By using free SidePad and WiFi-Doc applications, these LaserVue
projectors also support 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(TM). 
Long committed to social responsibility and conserving natural
resources, Mitsubishi Electric has improved the design and production
of its new projectors with the environment in mind, and can help
buildings gain LEED certification: 

--  Mitsubishi uses lead-free solder on all printed circuit boards.
--  New models are designed with high-efficiency standby modes that are
    designed to use less than one watt of power.
--  Full-volume user manuals have been eliminated from production and
    information has been converted into CD or web downloadable format for
    easy storage and less material consumption.
--  Mitsubishi Electric projector cabinets are not painted, and no
    conductive coating is used.

"There's a new world in the classroom and boardroom, and Mitsubishi is
here to display it, brilliantly, accurately, and cost-effectively,"
said James Chan, vice president of marketing, Mitsubishi Electric
Visual Display Solutions. 
The NW31U-EST and NW30U are targeted for availability in April and
the NF32U is targeted for availability in June, with pricing released
at that time. Each LaserVue projector comes with a three year
warranty on parts and labor, and five years or 10,000 hours on the
light source, whichever comes first. A projector and associated light
source is covered for three years by Mitsubishi's Express Replacement
Assistance (ERA) Program, a comprehensive nationwide service that
offers next business-day replacement* for units that are under
warranty. Terms and conditions apply.
