Toshiba XGA projector
Toshiba on Tuesday announced details and specifications on its newest projector, the TLP-XE30U. Capable of 1024x768 resolution, the projector features a blackboard function that allows it to correct for green, black, brown, blue or beige colored walls and surfaces to display a color-correct image. Setting it up is also straightforward, with automatic vertical keystone correction that can throw up a square image on the wall despite the projector's orientation of up to 30 degrees from horizontal.
The compact-sized projector is meant to be taken to presentations and features a 4:3 aspect ratio and 0.63-inch 3LCD image processor. The TLP-XE30U's key specifications include a contrast ratio of 600:1 and 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness. Screen sizes range from 33 to 300 inches.
Inputs include a VGA connection for connecting to PCs, along with an Ethernet port for network support. Other video inputs are comprised of an S-video and RCA jack, while sound is delivered by a stereo mini jack. On the output side, there is another VGA port for video and an audio mini jack.
Toshiba's TLP-XE30U projector is currently available for sale online and in stores priced at $1,119.
