Toshiba’s Digital Products Division on Tuesday rolled out the
projector, aimed at mobile professionals looking for a Digital Light Processing (DLP)-based projector suitable for any room size. The US$1,399 projector is available immediately.
The TDP-T40U features 1,800 ANSI lumens brightness, 2000:1 contrast ratio and native 1024 x 768 pixel (XGA) resolution, suitable for displaying an image from 30 to 300 inches (measured diagonally), with a projection distance of 3.9 to 34.7 feet.
The TDP-T40U features composite, component and S-Video inputs, along with a monitor output that lets you connect the projector to an external display — useful if you don’t want to turn to the projected image to see what’s on the screen as you make your presentation. A mini D-sub connector accepts monitor signals from a Mac or PC. Supported signal formats include NTSC, PAL, SECAM, and HDTV/DTV (480p, 480i, 720p and 1080i).
The TDP-T40U weighs 6.6 pounds and is made out of a metallic silver casing. It measures 11.2 x 10.0 x 3.8 inches. Other features include one-touch auto setup and a remote control. A one-watt speaker is also provided.
