Toshiba introduced the TDP-S8U projector, a high-performance, portable presentation tool for educators, mobile professionals, corporate users and small-to-medium-sized businesses priced at $799.

Offering premium projection technologies at a value price, the Toshiba TDP-S8U delivers a powerful combination of brightness, portability and versatility. With its lightweight design, the TDP-S8U is perfect for use in virtually any room size, in the office or home. The projector features DLP (digital light processing) technology, producing bright, high-quality images, 1800 ANSI lumens, a 2000:1 contrast ratio and native SVGA 800x600 resolution.

In addition to its impressive display quality, the TDP-S8U includes a range of capabilities and connectivity options designed to meet the demands of today's multimedia presentations, such as composite, S-video inputs and audio in/out capabilities. Users can also connect the projector to a standard cable connection or DVD player, making it a multi-use projector ideal for both business and entertainment.

A monitor output connector allows users to view presentations from an external display, in addition to what is projected on the screen. This feature allows presenters to face their audience directly, rather than turning around to read slides as they appear on the screen.

With a whisper-quiet fan that runs at approximately 31dB (decibel adjusted) in low mode, the projector will not distract the audience.
