Posted by at 1:09 pm on November 4, 2008

Toshiba has announced the launch of the lightweight TLP-X200U wireless 3LCD projector, the world’s first projector with voice guidance. The slim TLP-X200U network compatible projector also incorporates closed captioning, a multiscreen function for large venue use and is covered by Toshiba’s three-year standard limited warranty for $1,739.

“Toshiba has designed, engineered and manufactured the TLP-X200U projector with its special voice guidance to help reduce projector maintenance costs,” said Jane Poon, product marketing manager, Digital Products Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. “The voice guidance system conveniently directs users with an audible message through the projector’s operating instructions and system warnings, such as the on/off status, lamp life, air filter checks and cooling fan status.”

The Toshiba TLP-X200U wireless projector includes the following features:

  • Weighing just 4.4 pounds, the TLP-X200U 3LCD projector’s slim form factor is less than 3 inches high and about the size of a hardback novel. ┬áThe projector comes with its own carrying case.
  • Wireless Networking Capabilities: The built-in IEEE 802.11b/g wireless functionality of the TLP-X200U enables presenters to connect their wireless laptops to the projector from anywhere in the room and deliver sequential presentations without the need for cables.
  • Closed Captioning: This advancement allows the audience to read text or dialogue from a DVD player or television signal.
  • Multiscreen Function: This technology allows users to network up to four TLP-X200U projectors to create one large venue image or to present up to two different screen images at once from one computer source.
  • Windows Vista Network Capable: The projector is compatible with Microsoft Vista Ultimate’s “Meeting Spac”functionality for remote sharing of presentation files.
  • USB Port: This port allows on-the-go professionals the option to go “PC-fre”by simply storing their presentation in a JPG format and plugging the thumbnail drive into the USB port, taking full advantage of the TLP-X200U projector’s lightweight, slim form factor.
  • Blackboard” Function: This feature allows presentations to be made on non-screen surfaces, such as a painted wall or a blackboard. Users simply select a wall color, such as green, black, brown, blue or beige, and the projector automatically corrects the color for a clearer display in almost any environment
  • Quick-Power Shutdown: Some projectors require that the fan stops completely before users can unplug the projector to save on wear and tear of the lamp. The Toshiba TLP-X200U projector can be powered off once disconnected from the outlet with no cool-down time required;
  • Automatic Vertical Keystone Correction: This feature instantly projects a square image even when the projector is placed at a steep offset angle of plus or minus 45 degrees to the screen
  • Extensive Connectivity Options: The HDTV-compatible TLP-X200U comes with a variety of inputs and outputs for high-end multimedia presentations, including an RGB (x 2 D-sub 15-pin; one is shared as Monitor Out), HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface), component video (shared with RGB), composite and S-video inputs, RJ45 wired for LAN, monitor out, and audio in/out capabilities.
