Looking to get into a business? Don't bother with flat-panel TVs. The last company to seemingly get into this shindig and have a real go at it was Vizio, and it's been downhill ever seen. Sony, Sharp, LG, Toshiba and a host of others have cited the TV panel industry at being one with razor thin margins, and while new plasma and LCD sets used to sell for thousands, even big-screen sets are down into the low-hundreds at this point. Toss in shipping, and there's barely a profit to be made. Mitsubishi is joining the crowd of those backing further and further away from the TV industry. Despite the fact... Read more...
Is this the start of a wild and unforeseen trend? Things in the television world tend to follow a pretty distinct path; when one company began to phase out CRT tube displays, it didn't take long before others did the same. Before long, LCDs were not only all of the rage, but the only option on store shelves. Same with 3D. Just a few years ago, 2D TVs ruled the shelves; after Sony and a couple of others began to seriously push 3D panels, the rest of the major TV companies began to follow suit. Now, it's tough to find a television that's not at least 3D-ready. Is the LCD HDTV the next to go, or is... Read more...
If you just so happen to have a television that is marked "3D-ready," but still need a little help in making the whole thing come together, Mitsubishi has a new kit that just might be exactly what you need. The new 3D Starter Pack enables owners of both Mitsubishi and Samsung 3D-ready DLP TVs to actually enjoy 3D content on older televisions that were born just prior to the 3D revolution. The Mitsubishi 3DC-100S, which became available today, comes complete with two pairs of active shutter 3D eyewear, a 3D emitter, an updated 3D Adapter with remote, an HDMI cable as well as a Disney 3D Blu-ray...

LCD monitors began as poor replacements for CRTs when it came to playing games, due in large part to sluggish response times resulting in ghosting, streaking, and other abnormalities. Today's LCD monitors do a much better job, but evidently there's still plenty of room for improvement. Enter Mitsubishi, which is reportedly designing an intelligent 23-inch LCD monitor with three different display modes depending on the type of game you're playing. The RDT232WM-Z panel employs a double-speed interpolation function, which is a fancy way of saying it's able to interpolate images from 60fps to 120fps... Read more...
The HDTV industry has become somewhat saturated, and it's getting to the point where it's difficult to distinguish between models. But there's no doubt that you'll recognize Mitsubishi's latest television, as it looks nothing like the flat screens that are so common in retail shops everywhere. The LaserVue was a specialized HDTV that originally launched in late 2007, but given that it had "a back" rather than being a flat panel, not too many were sold. Additionally, the MSRP was around $7000, and even for 65", that's quite a lot to ask. But no matter, as now the company has just released the second... Read more...
When you think of HDTVs, you probably think of names like Sony, Vizio, Toshiba or Sharp. Maybe even LG. But Mitsubishi? It's true, they make televisions, and some pretty high-end ones at that. The company hasn't really had a super high profile TV since the LaserVue set a few years ago, though that one didn't exactly take off due to the prohibitive MSRP. Aiming to hit a sweeter pricing spot, the company has introduced their third-generation Unisen Immersive Sound LED TVs, which do a lot more than just show content coming from your cable box. This new line is centered around a 55" LED TV (sizes from... Read more...
The first wave of pico projectors had all sorts of steam behind it, but that enthusiasm was soon pushed away as newer and more wide-ranging products came to market. After a year-long lull, it really feels like the mini projector has its groove back, and now we're hearing more and more about new options and new progress being made in order to make them more suitable for the mainstream market. Mitsubishi Electric has today announced something that's highly technical in nature, but could have a significant impact on the future production of these devices. The company's new 638-nanometer (nm) wavelength... Read more...
Mitsubishi isn't a name you generally associate with LCD monitors, but nevertheless, that very company is stepping into the ring with the likes of HP, Samsung, BenQ and Dell with its stylish, power-sipping RDT231WLM-S. No, we don't ever expect you to fully recall that name, but just knowing that it's the outfit's latest 23" monitor should be enough.With a full 1080p (1920x1080) native resolution, the widescreen LCD boasts a 5ms response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, an HDMI socket, DVI port and VGA connector. The ECO Professional Mode helps to save energy when you don't need... Read more...
These days, almost every company is claiming to have the "world's best" something. It used to seem relatively special to hear that some firm had accomplished a feat that no one else on the planet had done, but today, it's more commonplace than ever before. Regardless of all that, we can assure anyone that viewed last night's Monday Night Football matchup that the Dallas Cowboys actually have a record worth swooning over.The absolutely mammoth display that hangs about the new Cowboys Stadium in Texas stretches for what seems like miles, even though it's "only" 60 yards. Developed and produced by... Read more...
There was a time not too long ago where just about every TV maker was jumping to add Netflix streaming to their sets. Now that said wave has rolled, it looks like the next bandwagon to jump on is the one with the Vudu banner streaming from the rear. Shortly after LG announced that a select few of its Netcast HDTVs would be able to stream on-demand films from Vudu, Mitsubishi has stepped forward with similar news. Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America has today announced that it has begun shipments of its Vudu-ready HDTVs. The 1080p flat-panel sets are all in the Unisen Diamond lineup, with the... Read more...
