Yesterday, four distinguished members of the Mitsubishi product management and development group came by for an advance presentation of the new HC6000, which is to be officially announced at CEDIA next week. This is their second generation 1080p projector that will replace the HC5000 introduced last fall. The HC6000 is an improvement over the HC5000 in three ways. First, the contrast has been boosted from 10,000:1 up to 13,000:1. Second, the auto iris adjusts to changes in scene brightness much more rapidly than it did on the HC5000. Third, the initial price upon release has been reduced 11%, from last year's $4,495 to $3,995.more

We are rapidly approaching the fall season. Accordingly, we will soon be inundated with the barrage of new product releases that always occurs at the CEDIA home theater trade show, to be held this year in Denver on Sept 5-8. Since most projector manufacturers are keeping their powder dry until that convention opens its doors, we've taken the opportunity to focus attention on some of the newest and hottest XGA portable multimedia projectors. And there have been some dramatic price/performance advances in this class of product in case you haven't looked at them lately.more
