Tohiba's mobile projector

Toshiba on Tuesday announced the release of its latest mobile projector, the TDP-SP1U. Weighing in at 4.8 lbs, the projector is among the lightest portable offerings in its class, and offers a native SVGA (800x600) resolution along with a 2,000:1 contrast ratio. Unlike typical projectors that make do with four colors, Toshiba's DLP BrilliantColor technology uses six separate colors for a brighter and more vivid picture.

Brightness is rated at 2,200 lumens, while the lamp life is rated at 3,000 hours in standard mode, or 4,000 in economy mode. Digital keystone correction is manually adjustable, while an RS232 port allows integration with AV network control systems. To keep use restricted, a password protection system is integrated into the TDP-SP1U. The 0.55-inch DLP panel and filter-free lens are capable of throwing up images that range from 23.9 to 300 inches diagonally. Video inputs include a VGA, RCA and S-Video connections.

A split video output allows presenters to look at a cloned image on a monitor during presentations, alleviating the tendency to speak away from the audience. A presentation remote is also included with the TDP-SP1U.

The TDP-SP1U is currently available for purchase, and takes up the entry-level price point in Toshiba's projector line-up at nearly $720.
