The Mitsubishi EW230U-ST Ultra-Short Throw Projector with eBeam Edge is a highly versatile and accommodating multimedia and data projector. At only 6.2 lb. (2.8kg), it can be used in both mobile and stationary applications. It features Mitsubishi's BrilliantColor technology, which enhances color reproduction, resulting in clear and vivid images.
The projector is bundled with eBeam Edge for education. This small, lightweight, and rugged road warrior fits comfortably in any laptop case and activates an area large enough to accommodate any projected image-including high-definition. Navigate, annotate, and manipulate computer applications from the board and take advantage of the impressive range of tools included in the eBeam software. Import multimedia including interactive Flash files and search and access the virtually unlimited supply of online images via the eBeam gallery.
It also features 3D ready technology, which will let you use 3D in presentations and entertainment. This unit thrives in any training situation and can be connected to a network for multiple simultaneous presentations. Many units can be run from one central location, but it also works great on its own.
The EW230U-ST has several inputs that increase its flexibility. There are dual PC inputs so that two computers can be connected at the same time. There is a LAN terminal for linking with a network and a serial terminal for RS-232C connection. The video and S-video terminals are paired with two 3.5mm mini jack audio inputs. There is a monitor output and an audio output as well. The audio output allows you to run the sound through a more substantial speaker system.
Although there is an audio out, the EW230U-ST is more than capable of producing loud enough sound for any presentation. The unit has a built-in 2W high-volume speaker. The fact that the fan noise is low, only 29 dBA, means there won't be too much annoying interference with the audio.
The automatic subtitle function uses a built-in closed caption decoder to convert words into subtitles. The subtitles are projected onto the screen, addressing the needs of language students and hearing-impaired viewers. Mitsubishi also includes a quick menu that improves ease of operation. There are seven main menus and one custom menu, allowing you to select specific operation settings more quickly.
The EW230U-ST also includes all-in-one Web-based management of multiple projectors. This is possible when linking with a network through the LAN terminal. The status of many projectors in the same building can be easily viewed and you can turn projectors on and off from a central location. You can also control the image input via a network, letting you give multiple presentations from one location.
