IRVINE, Calif. (PRWEB) September 4, 2007

    The compact and sleek 6.2-pound TLP-WX2200U LCD projector, utilizes 3LCD technology for outstanding color reproduction and an impressive 2,200 ANSI lumens for a bright display in any setting. The widescreen WXGA 1280 x 800 native resolution and sharp 600:1 contrast ratio outputs a superior and brilliant image for professional presentations and larger-than-life images for digital home entertainment, such as video gaming, weekend sports and DVD movies.

"The TLP-WX2200U projector was designed to meet our business and education users demand for a widescreen format that matched the latest notebook resolutions for detailed imaging and additional display space," said Sam Malik, director of projector sales and marketing, Toshiba Digital Products Division. "Toshiba is proud to offer this widescreen format without passing on the premium price to our customer."

The TLP-WX2200U projector also includes a sophisticated approach to security. A removable palm-sized control panel on the projector is specially designed with a self-assigned password for theft prevention. When the control panel is removed, the projector is rendered inoperable unless the password is entered on the remote control or when the control panel is replaced.

The Toshiba TLP-WX2200U projector also includes the following leading-edge features:

-- Toshiba's unique Natural Color Enhancer3 color correction circuitry, delivering exceptionally sharp and vivid images that more closely match the original presentation colors;

-- One-touch auto setup on a fully-loaded presentation remote to ensure worry-free, professional presentations even in the most unforgiving environments;

-- Digital zoom function on the remote control allows the presenter to zoom in on a specific image or presentation element, such as spreadsheet numbers or other important details;

-- Password protection and key-lock function to help prevent unauthorized use;

-- Instant power shut down capability that enables the projector to power off instantly once disconnected from the power outlet with no cool-down time required;

-- A variety of connectivity options, such as composite and S-video inputs, audio in/out capabilities;

-- HDTV/DTV compatible;

-- Special monitor-out capabilities to display and view images on a monitor and screen simultaneously, allowing presenters to face their audience rather than turning around to read slides as they appear on the screen;

-- Automatic vertical keystone correction (plus or minus 30 degrees) that instantly projects a square image even when the projector is set up at a steep offset angle to the screen;

-- Whisper-quiet operation of only 31 decibels (dB) (in low mode) - quieter than a soft conversation.

The Toshiba TLP-WX2200U is currently available to order through Toshiba's authorized distributors, VARs, mail-order outlets and toshibadirect.com.
