  • 14 February, 2006 17:13

<p>Sydney, 14 February 2006: Toshiba (Australia) Pty. Limited Information Systems Division (ISD) has drawn upon the latest breakthrough in miniaturisation, LED and mobile technology with the release of three new portable projectors: the Toshiba FF1, S8 and P8 projector.</p>
<p>Toshiba FF1 projector: Micro LED projector (RRP $1799 Inc GST)</p>
<p>As well as being the world’s first LED projector, the Toshiba FF1 is also the world’s smallest and lightest projector, weighing only 565 grams and with dimensions of 136 x 100 x 55mm. At this size, it fits in the palm of a hand.</p>
<p>The LED projection technology gives businesses lower cost of ownership through its low power consumption and no need for lamp replacement. It also runs significantly cooler and quieter than most projectors that use high powered lamps and noisy fans.</p>
<p>Despite its size, the Toshiba FF1 projector has SVGA resolution and 1500:1 contrast ratio. For business people constantly travelling or those who want to take their entertainment on the road, the FF1 features quick-start and USB-reader for making presentations quickly. The projector also has an immediate shut-down mechanism.</p>
<p>Available in a pearl casing, the FF1 comes with a small foldable screen, carry bag (with room for a notebook) and rechargeable battery, so that a PC and power outlet is not required.</p>
<p>Toshiba P8 DLP projector: ultra-portable business projector ($3299 Inc GST)</p>
<p>Designed for small businesses and mobile professionals, the Toshiba P8 is an XGA projector with a high contrast ratio of 2100:1 and 1500 ANSI lumens for quality images in the meeting room.</p>
<p>Weighing one kilogram, the portable P8 projects across 16 million colours for crisp and clear images.</p>
<p>The P8 also features auto image set-up and keystone correction for simple and fast start-up and operation, and up to 3000 hours lamp life. Additionally, it comes with a USB cable for remote mouse control, laser pointer and carry bag.</p>
<p>Toshiba S8 DLP projector: spectator bundle package ($1999 incl. GST)</p>
<p>2006 is a big year for sport with the Commonwealth Games, Winter Olympics, Soccer, Cricket, NRL, Formula One Grand Prix and more. With the Toshiba S8 projector, viewers can watch the action live or record* it to watch at a later time on the big screen.</p>
<p>Catering for those wanting an all-in-one package for the home, the Toshiba S8 projector comes bundled with a Digital TV tuner for DVD quality images, HDD recorder (in tuner), and high quality AV cable for clear and crisp video content.</p>
<p>The S8 is a SVGA projector boasting 2000:1 contrast ratio, 10,000 hours lamp life and 2000 ANSI lumens for day time viewing. It also comes with password protection and panel lock for added security, and ECO mode for noise reduction and extended lamp life.</p>
<p>All Toshiba projectors come standard with three year warranty and 90 day new product replacement.</p>
