    Newly developed Diamond Black Iris with 1/60-second iris control.

    With the adoption of  the Mitsubishi developed Diamond Black Iris technology, contrast control with the HC7000 home theatre projector has been taken to all news heights. The iris section takes on a "diamond-cut" shape that prevents light refraction for an enhanced level of contrast, meaning accurate black reproduction is achieved even during sequences on continual bright/dark scene changes. Combined with Mitsubishi's innovative contrast control, you can be assured of the deepest blacks, the brightest whites, and the most vivid colours in between.

    Next-generation inorganic LCD panel for full high-definition projection

    Traditionally, most LCD panels found in projectors have been manufactured with organic compounds that with enough usage will begin to break down over time, resulting in loss of picture quality and contrast. The next-generation C2 Fine LCD panel found in the HC7000 is comprised of inorganic compounds, so even after long hours of use high picture quality is maintained with high contrast. This 1920 x 1080 dot full-HD resolution LCD panel can reproduce images of true high-definition quality.

     


     

     

    Extra-low dispersion glass lenses for superior high definition resolution 

     
     ED (extra-low dispersion) glass lenses

    In order to display full-HD resolution, the HC7000 is equipped with a lens system comprised of 17 elements in 14 groups, including three ED (extra-low dispersion) lenses, which are more costly and deliver higher performance than conventional glass lenses. This lens system dramatically improves chromatic aberration and peripheral focus, giving you sharper pictures right to the edge of the screen.
     

     


     

    New Optics Compensation panel give precise light focusing and amazing high-contrast levels

    A common problem among conventional projectors is a loss of light intensity; not so with the HC7000. An optical compensation panel has been newly developed and installed in the HC7000 which prevents light leakage, preserving the light intensity for even higher levels of contrast. This technology combined with the Diamond Black Iris, allow the HC7000 to achieve contrast levels of up to an astounding 72,000:1

     

    New optical engine greatly increases installation flexibility

    To allow impressive big-screen images to be enjoyed even in a small room, the HC7000 is equipped with a 1.6x power zoom and focus. The projection distance for a 100-inch (16:9) picture is just 3.1 meters. In addition, there is also a power lens shift for moving the lens vertically and horizontally, greatly increasing installation flexibility.
     

     

     

     

     

    Silicon Optix Reon VX next-generation full 10-bit video processor

     
     Reon VX

    The HC7000 is equipped with the latest Reon-VX chip produced by the US company Silicon Optix, a chip widely used on high-end AV equipment and which has earned an outstanding reputation among industry professionals. Renowned for its HQVTM (Hollywood Quality Video) technology, the Reon-VX provides high-precision I/P conversion for sharper images from any video source, a high performance video scaler for superior resolution conversion, and optimised chromatic up-sampling for more faithful reproduction of high definition colour images.


     
     

     

    One of the industry's quietest projectors at just 17dBA

    Thanks to a redesigned cooling system and the projector chassis's effective sound dampening design, fan operating noise is barely perceptible at an amazingly low 17dBA (low mode).

    Side Loading Lamp

    Users can replace the lamp with out taking down the projector if ceiling mounted. This design simplifies lamp replacements without turning the projector around or over when mounted on the ceiling or resting on a shelf. This design helps to reduce overall cost of ownership and maintenance.

     *Maximum of 5000 hours at low mode and 2000 hours at standard mode. Lamp life is defined as the average time until brightness is reduced by half; it is not a guaranteed life for all lamps. Lamp life will vary considerably depending on the usage environment and conditions, and whether regular maintenance such as cleaning is performed.
