Posted in Mitsubishi by Conner Flynn on June 27th, 2011

Most of us have many separate components for our home theater setup, but some prefer the convenience of having everything in a single device to keep things tidy. Mitsubishi has answered the call with an all-in-one system that consists of an HDTV that comes with a built-in Blu-ray and hard disk recorder, among other features.

The REAL LCD-22BLR500 is an all-in-one package 22-inch HD television set that comes with a digital TV tuner, a Blu-ray recorder that features a 500GB hard disk and support for AVCREC.

Mitsubishi focuses on larger LCD HDTVs

Posted in Mitsubishi by Conner Flynn on March 20th, 2011

Mitsubishi is downsizing their LCD HDTV market, by shifting the focus to larger sizes. The Japanese company will close some offices and leave the LCD TV business entirely. As the only company still selling rear projection sets to consumers, the plan is to focus on selling DLP and Laservue TVs in sizes above 73-inches where its flat panel competitors rarely reach.

Aside from that, they will continue to sell projectors, display walls, printers and large public display screens to other companies. Seems like a smart decision since the market is crowded.

Mitsubishi shows off gigantic OLED display

Posted in Mitsubishi by Shane McGlaun on January 29th, 2010

I would certainly like some OLED HDTV action in my living room. I would gladly give up my plasma TV that is several years old already for newer tech with a better picture. The bag thing about OLED sets right now is that they are crazy expensive and small.

Mitsubishi has pulled the wraps off a new prototype OLED display that fixes one problem with OLED displays and compounds another. The set fixes the size issue with 149-inches of OLED glory. The price of the screen would make my wallet cry I am sure.

Vudu shipping in Mitsubishi HDTVsMitsubishi is now the second brand to include Vudu in their HDTVS after LG. Select Mitsubishi Diamond televisions to be exact. The LT-46249 and LT-52249 models feature an Ethernet port that connects to the Internet and the Vudu service. If you want to be wire free, there’s also a WIFI option.

The news makes us wonder who will be next to include Vudu in their sets. Time will tell. Vudu is on a real streak here. It was only back in July when we told you about LG including vudu in their LH50 Netcast HDTVs.

Mitsubishi TVs to come with free Vudu boxes

Posted in Mitsubishi by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2009

Mitsubishi TVs to come with free Vudu boxesWe’re used to seeing free DVD or Blu-ray players with an HDTV purchase, but Mitsubishi is trying a new approach. Beginning July 16th, authorized retailers will give you a free Vudu box and $50 service credit with every Mitsubishi TV.

The box is only a $150 value, but then again Vudu is the only player out there offering 1080p HDX video rentals right now, plus it supports Pandora, Flickr, YouTube and local streaming, so bundling the TV with the box is an easy way for Mitsubishi to jump into the connected TV market without having to work very hard.

Mitsubishi projector offers wide-angle and short throw

Mitsubishi WD500U-ST ProjectorWith some projectors that are used in the classroom or living room, getting a large image on the screen or a wall means needing a big room so the projector can be far enough from the surface the image is on. If you are in a smaller room that means you can end up with a smaller than ideal image.

This is where short throw projectors are perfect. Mitsubishi has announced a new short throw projector called the WD500U-ST that can throw an image 50-inches in size from only 28-inches from the screen or whiteboard.

Mitsubishi XD95U ProjectorAsk most people about projectors and they think of home theater setups, but many professionals use projectors to give presentations for business. This type of user doesn’t care as much about resolution as they do brightness and how compact the projector is.

Mitsubishi has a new projector that just launched called the XD95U that weighs only 3.3 pounds and is smaller than a normal sheet of notebook paper. The small size makes it easy to carry on the bus, train or in an airplane when working on the road.

LucidTouch transparent touch screen

LucidTouch transparent touch screenMobile devices equipped with touch screens, such as the iPhone, are without a doubt a stellar forward progression in device interface that is very intuitive to users, but still have their faults. The technology behind the screens fault due to occlusion and the way in which the touch is mapped to cursor position making it sometimes difficult to make a selection, especially if you have large fingers. Enter LucidTouch, a technology in the works from Microsoft and Mitsubishi Electric lab research.

LucidTouch employs a pseudo transparency that displays the fingers as shadows from behind the screen but not other objects behind it. The shadow effect is essentially a feature designed to make the user experience more natural than simply displaying touch points coming from the back of the screen which might confuse a user as to which finger is associated with which dot, with the shadow transparency the user needn’t think making the UX more intuitive. A passive touch feature allows the user to utilize their thumbs in making direct touch selections from the front of the device which may be used simultaneously with other fingers at the back using the multi-touch ability of the device.
