Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America Rolls Out Its Top-of-the-Line 1080p DLP™ MicroDisplay HDTVs with Integrated Digital Video Recorders

INDIANAPOLIS — SEPTEMBER 6, 2005 — MITSUBISHI Digital Electronics America, Inc. will showcase the integrated digital video recording capabilities in its new Diamond line of microdisplay HDTVs at CEDIA today. All of the new fully integrated Diamond models feature Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing™ technology, an internal hard disc drive (digital video recorder) and two high definition tuners.

Mitsubishi's new Diamond series 62-inch WD-62827 and 73-inch WD-73827 include an internal 160GB hard disc drive, allowing up to 16 hours of HD recording, while the 62-inch WD-62927 and 73-inch WD-73927 have a 250GB hard drive capable of recording up to 25 hours of HD content. Each comes with two HDTV tuners, enabling the user to record a high definition program while watching another channel or other content. All four models employ a 150W lamp for super bright images, and the 927 Series adds Mitsubishi's most advanced, removable anti-glare shield.

These new Diamond HDTVs also sport new cabinetry: high gloss black for the 827 series and high tech silver for the 927 series. They feature 1920 x 1080p resolution and Mitsubishi's proprietary Dark Detailer™ and Plush™ imaging system to display the perfect picture every time. Plush™ imaging includes DeepField™ imager and SharpEdge™ technology, as well as Plush1080p™, Mitsubishi's third-generation upconversion system updated for 1080i-to-1080p deinterlacing.

Dark Detailer™ is new Mitsubishi technology that provides enhanced contrast and black levels. It allows a wider palette of dark gray shades, giving a realistic sense of depth to the picture.

DeepField™ imager is a new system Mitsubishi developed that allows the television to display enhanced contrast and sharpness. It constantly monitors the picture signal and finely adjusts brightness, contrast and gamma so that every part of every frame is optimized. This results in a picture with greater depth-of-field, especially in scenes with both dark and light areas.

SharpEdge™ is the latest version of an exclusive Mitsubishi edge-definition system. New for this year, it enhances both horizontal and vertical edges for stunning picture precision.

All four televisions have two HDMI™ inputs, three component video inputs and a multi-format memory card reader. The 927 series also come with a dedicated PC input, added specifically to complement HD media center PCs.

All four are Digital Cable Ready using CableCARD™, with a front panel IEEE1394 jack and a DV decoder to allow easy playback from digital video camcorders.

Like other Mitsubishi microdisplay HDTVs, the new sets utilize ClearThought™ technology to make them the easiest to use TVs available, such as all-digital audio output, which converts analog audio signals to digital audio, and the TV Guide On Screen® program guide system. The new models also come with NetCommand® 5.0, the latest generation of Mitsubishi's home theater operating system which allows users to set up and control components using simple on-screen icons.
