Posted on Wednesday, August 24 2005 @ 7:47 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Dell added its most powerful, highest resolution projector to its lineup on Tuesday. The Dell 500MP is a high-performance, high-brightness projector that is currently the only product in its class for less than $3,500. It features a 3,300 ANSI lumens (max) brightness rating, SXGA+ (1400 X 1050) resolution and 2,500:1 contrast ratio for distinct black colors. The projector allows businesses and educators to present complex visual models with sharp detail and rich color in large conference rooms or lecture halls. The ability to project true high-definition content also makes the 5100MP ideal for home theaters.

The 5100MP Projector offers the most connectivity options in the Dell projector line-up and includes an RJ-45 port for network-based monitoring and troubleshooting. Other ports include HDMI, composite, VGA, M1 and S-Video, among others. Preset and user-programmable video and graphics modes help ensure optimal color performance, regardless of content displayed. Automatic vertical keystone correction technology helps ensure that a symmetrical image is displayed even when the projector is at an angle to the screen.

The 5100MP, housed in a sturdy magnesium chassis with silver accents, includes flexible installation options. Users can mount it to a ceiling (with optional kit), project from behind a screen or use it with a notebook or desktop system.

Dell also launched its standard projector ceiling installation service for business and institutional customers that is ideal for conference and training rooms. The service is available with all of Dell's projectors, including the 1100MP, 2300MP, 4100MP and 5100MP.

This projector is available today in the United States and Canada and will be offered in other regions later this year.
