Posted by at 6:35 am on September 2, 2008

Toshiba today announced the launch of the slim, 4-pound TLP-X100U mobile projector which features closed captioning functionality and 3LCD technology.

“Toshiba added the slim, TLP-X100U 3LCD mobile projector with closed captioning to its lineup of projectors for use especially in education, professional settings or in noisy environments,” said Jane Poon, product marketing manager, Digital Products Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc.  

Other Features

  • Closed Captioning: This advancement allows the audience to read  text or dialogue from a DVD player or television signal, benefiting  viewers who may be hard of hearing, learning a new language,  beginning to read or in a noisy environment.
  • “Blackboard” Function: This feature allows presentations to be made  on non-screen surfaces, such as a painted wall or a blackboard, for  ultimate mobility. 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 unplugging the projector to save on wear and tear  of the lamp. The Toshiba TLP-X100U 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 30 degrees to the screen.  
  • Digital Zoom: The projector offers users the ability to focus on  the highlights of the presentation by resizing the images.
