Mitsubishi Markets Sub-$5K 1080p

Mitsubishi announced a new 1080p projector at CEDIA – a 3LCD model with HQV priced at $4,495. The HC5000BL is specified at 1920 x 1080 resolution, 1000 ANSI lumens and the contrast ratio we’re seeing a lot of lately: 10000:1.

Mitsubishi says the HC5000BL is designed with new inorganic LCD panels that are more durable and provide a more color-consistent, even-toned image than previous generations of LCD panels according to the company. The LCD optical engine is also enclosed in order to prevent most dust from entering the engine, keeping the image clean. And the chassis is designed so that a user can replace the lamp without removing the unit from the mount, or even handling the projector.

The HC5000BL provides HDMI and DVI connectors, and it is available in standard black or optional white.
