Presentation Products Division has introduced the HC2 Home Cinema ColorView projector that’s built for home theater enthusiasts, but which also offers connectivity with computers (via a VGA connector) and gaming consoles as well as HDTV, DVD players and VCRs.
It sports a conventional 4:3 aspect ratio “because it’s still the most popular format for televised sports, regular programming and computer games,” according to James Chan, director, projector product marketing for Mitsubishi Digital. However, it can also be set to display in 16:9 aspect ratio to provide a movie-theater effect with wide-screen display. The HC2 ColorView — which has a estimated street price of US$1,799 — has a lamp life of 2,500 hours and offers a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, 1100 ANSI lumens bright, and a 600:1 contrast ratio, all in a 6.4-pound package.
Plus, the projector offers ColorView, Mitsubishi’s patented color algorithm that includes a six-axis color control function; both RGB and CMY color palettes can be independently controlled and adjusted like a graphic equalizer. The learning remote control included with the HC2 ColorView can be programmed to operate two additional video sources, such as a DVD player or VCR.
