Just have announced a new DLP home theater projector, the MT400. It is a widescreen 16:9 unit with the Matterhorn 576p DMD chip from Texas Instruments.
“The days of high-quality DLP Home Cinema projectors being unaffordable are over, thanks to the MT400, Toshiba’s latest dedicated 16:9 DLP home cinema projector.
This affordable home cinema projector has been designed and configured specifically for the consumer market. Thanks to the acclaimed Matterhorn 576P DMD™ chip from TI, its native Wide PAL resolution (1024 x 576) perfectly matches the format of our European broadcast TV and DVD, avoiding the need to rescale and therefore delivering exact and undistorted pictures from the source.
Its 3000:1 contrast ratio and 6-segment colour wheel produce exceptional picture quality and life-like tones, while the TrueVision De-Interlacer and Scaler ensure a smooth, enhanced visual performance.
The MT400 features excellent connectivity, including component video, S-Video and composite video inputs for increased versatility. An all digital DVI (Digital Visual Interface) connector is also included that is HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) compatible via an adapter. Both HDMI and DVI have the capacity to support high definition video formats, 720p, 1080i and even 1080p.
The MT400 has the looks to match its performance with a stylish silver and pearl exterior to complement any home, while the low operating noise will ensure the projector remains unobtrusive when in use.
Weighing just 2.8kg the MT400 is highly portable and can be easily transferred between rooms. Its lightweight design is coupled with compact dimensions (298x101x275mm) so it is also easy to store when not in use.”
