Toshiba TLP-X200U

November 5, 2008 Toshiba has launched a new lightweight wireless 3LCD projector, which is most notably the world’s first projector with voice guidance - a feature designed for non-technical users that talks you through operating instructions and provides system alerts. The network compatible TLP-X200U also incorporates closed captioning and a unique multiscreen function for large venue use.

The 4.4 pound projector features Windows Vista compatibility and is portable at less than three inches high. Key specs include 3,000 ANSI lumens, XGA (1024 x 768) native resolution and a 600:1 contrast ratio.

Built-in IEEE 802.11b/g wireless functionality delivers fast set-up time and enables presenters to easily connect their wireless laptops to the projector from anywhere. It can also be remotely controlled over a network for issues related to temperature, fan and lamp status.

The advanced closed captioning feature means the audience can read text or dialogue from a DVD player or television signal, while the multiscreen function 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.

Other features include a USB port, blackboard function for presentations to be made on non-screen surfaces, quick-power shutdown, automatic vertical keystone correction, password protection and key-lock security.

The HDTV-compatible Toshiba TLP-X200U is currently available for a recommended retail price of USD$1739.

No word yet on the projector that you tell what to do.
