VIDEO: Mitsubishi HC7900DW Home Theater Projector

We recently had the opportunity to play with make a video about the Mitsubishi HC7900DW.

This 1,500-lumen projector is perfect for home theaters and living rooms with low ambient light. It features a new optical engine to minimize light leakage and boost the contrast ratio to an impressive 150,000:1. The projector’s color management function allows you to easily adjust the hue, saturation and brightness to your liking.

The Mitsubishi HC7900DW also features an optional 3D emitter and 3D glasses. When you bundle these along with the projector, you get a 3D image that’s optimized for low crosstalk, image lag and judder. Advanced motion-vector analysis technology goes beyond regular old 2D-to-3D conversion to create a natural sense of depth.

Take a tour of the Mitsubishi HC7900DW below. We watched an internet video using the projector’s out of the box settings. Pop in a Blu-ray, do a little tweaking, and be prepared to have your socks knocked off!

Resolution and Aspect Ratio Explained

Do you know the difference between aspect ratio and resolution? How about the difference between XGA, WXGA, and HD?

He also demonstrates what it looks like when the native resolution of your computer doesn’t match up with the native resolution of your projector. Great information here – thanks Todd!
