Toshiba Imaging Systems has a new digital projector: the TDP-S3. Weighing in at less than six pounds, the Mac compatible TDP-S3 is targeted to the frequent traveler who may want to pack it in an overnight tote or notebook computer bag.
It’s small, but the US2,999 TDP-S3 packs 2000 ANSI lumen brightness and a $499 optional expansion module for upgraded connectivity. And, according to Toshiba, it also boasts Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing technology for maximum visual impact in a small footprint; variable brightness settings (2000 or 1600 lumens); quiet operation (>39dB); Digital Keystone correction; native SVGA (800 x 600) resolution; 400:1 contrast ratio; a built-in three-watt audio system; a wireless remote; and Faroudja DCDi (Directional Correlational De-Interlacing) technology for the highest resolution picture with smooth and natural edges offering the ultimate in accuracy and detail.
Regarding the aforementioned optional expansion module, it can be used to convert the TDP-SE from a lightweight portable unit to a conference room system with the advanced connectivity needed to create multimedia presentations using DVD players, HDTV, camcorders, digital photography and gaming consoles. Without the module, the TDP-S3 offers data compatibility with VGA, SVGA, Macs and 1080i/720p HDTV, as well as video compatibility with NTSC, PAL, SECAM, PAL-M and PAL-N signals.
