Toshiba today began selling the TLP-XC2000U, a business/educational projector that nevertheless has several distinguishing aspects. Among these is the projection itself, which shines at a bright 2,000 ANSI lumens, with a special "Eco-Mode" to extend lamp life up to 3,000 hours. The system also has a three-megapixel document camera, which is arm-mounted, and boasts 16x digital zoom and an LED light for illumination. The projector's native resolution is limited to 1024x768, but it accepts HDTV and DTV input, with signals up to 720p/1080i. Finally, pricing is relatively modest for the performance class, set at $1,099.
