Mitsubishi HC3800 DLP Home Theater Projector

Mitsubishi HC3800 DLP Home Theater Projector
The Mitsubishi HC3800 DLP Home Theater Projector's native resolution is FHD full high definition or 1080 by 1920. It can process both the progressive (1080p) and interlaced (1080i) versions as well as 720p.


1300 Lumens and a 3300:1 Contrast Ratio
The HC3800 uses a fixed iris, realizing both enhanced brightness and contrast for images. Even in a relatively bright living room with the curtains closed, movies, sports and other programs from high-definition broadcasting and Blu-ray sources can be fully enjoyed in high-definition images.
Texas Instruments DLP Image Panel With BrilliantColor
A key feature of the HC3800 is the latest Digital Light Processing (DLP) chip incorporating a new Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) comprising densely embedded micromirrors. A smaller mirror cavity diameter and narrower gaps between the mirrors improve the aperture ratio of the innovative chip, and reflective light diffusion has been greatly reduced by improving the wiring below the mirror section. The mirrors are controlled to tilt repeatedly several thousand times per second, enabling smooth, true reproduction of the digital source into finely detailed images with no noise or deterioration. As a bonus DLP devices require no filters that have to be periodically cleaned and replaced, saving you time and money.
DDP3021 Full 10-Bit Panel Driver
The built-in DDP3021 full 10-bit panel driver realizes approximately four times the gradation of 8-bit models, providing smooth expression of dark gradation subtleties.
Richer, More True-to-life Colors
The HC3800 is equipped with a six-segment color wheel capable of reproducing a standard illumination at the color temperature of D65 (6500 Kelvins). Signals from video sources are reproduced with more true-to-life colors and richer gradation.
Color Management for Preferred Color Adjustment
Adjust images to your color preferences. R (red), G (green), B (blue), C (cyan), M (magenta), and Y (yellow) can each be adjusted individually with the built-in color management function.
Short-Throw HD 1.5x Zoom Lens
The HC3800 uses a newly developed short-throw zoom lens. The 4-cluster, 13-piece all-glass lens provides excellent focusing performance with 1.5x magnification of high-definition images. Improvements in image depth and the lens aperture make it possible for deep blacks to be expressed. With its short throw capabilities a 50 inch image can be projected from less than five feet from the screen.
Anamorphic Lens Compatibility
The anamorphic lens compatibility of the HC3800 widens the projection range of CinemaScope 21:9 (2.35:1) images. Mode 1 proves extended projection, and Mode 2 is for images other than CinemaScope, which mirror the original when an (optional) anamorphic lens is attached.
High-Output, Long-life Lamp And Quiet Performance
The light source is a 230W high-output lamp capable of a long estimated lifetime of up to 5000 hours when operating in Low mode. The low-noise fan is specially designed for cooling efficiency taking factors such as fan and color wheel shape into consideration, yet ensuring impressively low 25 dB quietness when operating in Low mode.
One-Touch Projection
The projector power switch and electric screen (roll down/retract) control (12 volt trigger) are linked, providing convenient one-touch operation.
