Dell Intros New 4100MP Projector

Priced at $2,099, the projector weighs 6.5 pounds and uses Digital Light ProcessingTM  (DLP) DDR technology to produce clear, sharp images. The unit features a 2,000:1 contrast ratio and a brightness of 2,200 ANSI lumens (max)1. Through its auto-sync feature, the 4100MP’s native XGA (1024 x 768 dpi) resolution will adjust to accommodate that of the source device.

The Dell 4100MP joins Dell’s microportable projector line that includes the affordable 2200MP and portable 3200MP. New features in the 4100MP are a full-function RF remote control, which allows the user to operate the projector from anywhere in the room. It also incorporates horizontal and vertical keystone corrections, which straighten images and eliminate the need to place the projector directly in front of the screen or wall. Manual and digital zoom capabilities help ensure that images can still be clearly viewed when presenting from a distance.

The 4100MP also includes PIP for viewing images from two different sources simultaneously, and an optional 5-in-1 card reader that allows users to project digital pictures and presentations without a computer attached.

The 4100MP is housed in a sturdy magnesium chassis and can be used on a desktop, mounted to a ceiling with optional kit or projected from behind a screen. Other standard features include an interactive back-lit LCD display and two built-in 2-watt speakers. An optional Eco-Mode feature helps reduce noise output and can double lamp life (up to 3,000 hours). Preset and user-programmable video modes ensure color performance is optimal, no matter what is being displayed.

The projector ships with cables (M1-DA to VGA/USB, S-Video, component video, composite video RCA, audio, and mini pin to mini pin) and a fitted, drop-tested carrying case.

Initial availability will be in North America, with other regions to follow in the coming months. More information and specifications can be found at
