In the mid of May, projector maker Mitsubishi Electric
introduced a Full HD projector with the latest 0.65-inch DLP technology – the HC3900. At the purchase of the 2,000 Euro projector the first 222 buyers will be granted a free HD receiver for satellite connection, which is in celebration of the coming Football World Cup. Via HDMI connection the Full HD projector can be fed with high resolution content.
According to Mitsubishi, contrast ratio is at 2.000:1. With a maximum brightness 3,000 ANSI lumen, the projector will be capable of operating even in illuminated rooms, said the manufacturer. Due to the built-in short-throw HD lens, the projector will be able to work properly in smaller rooms. The integrated special lens will generate a larger projection though the distance between projector and projection screen is quite short.

Furthermore, the HC3900 provides an 5 segment colour wheel, and additionally possesses Colour Management, simple one-touch projection and keystone correction. Mitsubishi specifies the lamp life with up to 5,000 operating hours. Due to the relatively low weight of 3.6 kilogramme, the HC3900 will be suited for mobile operation. In terms of emission, the Mitsubishi model is not a bad choice either – at least in so-called low-mode: In this operating type, the projector roisters with moderate 25 decibels and consumes 190 watt, while the maximum are 230 watt.
The bundle offer consisting of the HC3900 and a LogiSat receiver worth 150 Euros is offered at all partaking Mitsubishi specialist retailers. On top of it, the first 222 customers get a twelve month access to Astra's HD+ programmes. While Mitsubishi announced the World Cup Promotion with the addition "As long as stocks last.", potential buyers have to be quick.
