Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America recently unveiled a new micro-portable DLP projector called the Mini-Mits XD60U. This new projector looks like it will fit just as well showing off movies in a home theater as it does projecting PowerPoint presentations in the boardroom.

The XD60U is an ultra light 3.5 pounds and measures 7.6? x 2.6? x 9.9?, with a one touch foot adjustment for better projection results. It features eight control buttons on the top of the body and a variety of input terminals on the back for different types of video (including DVI) and control by USB mouse or wireless remote.

The native resolution of the XD60U is XGA (1024 x 768 pixels), with an attainable compressed maximum of SVGA (1280 x 1024 pixels). The XD60U uses DLP chip technology and a contrast ratio of 2,000:1 to pull off high quality projection. Brightness rates well at an impressive 1800 ANSI lumens.

Supporting the high quality picture of the XD60U is another feature called Digital Keystone Correction. It reduces image distortion by providing vertical picture correction, reducing or eliminating trapezoid image distortion or zigzagging, when the projector can not be set on a perfectly flat surface.

For the home theater experience the XD60U is compatible across the video spectrum, even handling HDTV signals up to 1080i. This provides an extremely versatile experience for enjoying television and movie programming on a large movie screen, for example, from any source which has a matching video out.

Other features of the XD60U include lamp life of up to 2,000 hours in low mode, Kensington password-protected security lock, nine-language on screen display, digital expand zoom, auto input source search and presentation timer.

Accessories included with the XD60U are composite and S-video cables, DVI cable, remote control, soft carrying case and a lens cap. The unit is priced at $2,495 and comes with a three yearlimited warranty on parts and labor, plus a 90 day limited warranty on the lamp.
