Mitsubishi 3D TV
Mitsubishi began life as a shipping firm founded by Yataro Iwasaki in 1870, but didn't officially take the name Mitsubishi until 1873. Its name in English means "Three Diamonds," just like the company's iconic logo now seen on everything from automobiles to the newest technology in 3D televisions.
In 1881, the company expanded into coal mining by buying the Takashima mine. Further mining growth continued in 1890 with the acquisition of Hashima Island, a previously unpopulated island in the Nagasaki Prefecture. This coal mining provided much-needed fuel to Mitsubishi's fleet of steamships. From this beginning, the company has diversified even further, entering areas of shipbuilding, insurance, banking, trade, warehousing, paper, glass, steel, aircraft, oil, real estate and electrical equipment.
The conglomerate had such a wide foundation, it was one of the major forces driving the modernization of Japanese industry after World War II. In 2007, The Mitsubishi Corporation, a member of the Mitsubishi Group, became Japan's largest publicly traded company, while Mitsubishi Motors reached a total production of 1.3 million cars.
But we're here to talk about Mitsubishi Electric, the television-manufacturing arm of the Japanese conglomerate. This corporation was established way back in 1921. That was one year before the first 3D movie was released in theaters. And now, in 2010, the company and the format are coming together like never before.
Mitsubishi Electric announced three new lines of 3D DLP TVs at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show: the 638, 738, and 838 series. The base 638 series is straightforward, lacking major bells and whistles like the ability to run apps for Flickr, Pandora, and Picasa. The 738 series will have that capability, though, as well as StreamTV Internet media, video calibration options, and an optional 802.11n WiFi adapter. For those consumers that wish to go all out with their 3D TVs, the 838 models will include all of these abilities coupled with Mitsubishi's 16 speaker built-in iSP "Surround Sound" system, joining immersive 3D sound with stunning 3D picture.
All three series will come with 3D DLP Link, enabling Brilliant, Bright, Natural, and Game viewing modes. All models include 3 HDMI with CEC inputs, HDMI-PC compatibility, 2 Component/Composite Inputs, and will be able to produce crystal-clear high definition images at 1080 pixels-per-inch.
The 638 series models will be available in 60-, 65-, and 73-inch sizes, while the 738 series includes an 82-inch model along with the array of sizes. The 838 series eliminates the smallest size, coming in 65, 73, and 82 inches, but it does add a fourth HDMI with CEC input to the mix.
The 3D technique used by Mitsubishi in these models is the DLP Link technology. Strikingly similar to active shutter glasses, rather than syncing with a wireless signal to correct the lens timing, the DLP Link uses brief flashes of light during the display's blanking interval. This can potentially increase the battery life of the glasses since there's no wireless receiver drawing power.
It's important to note that Mitsubishi is only producing Digital Light Projection televisions, no plasma or LCD sets. DLPs can suffer from slight distortion during image movement, causing a minor RGB rainbow effect in the wake of the moving object. Also, because the images are being projected through a series mirrors on the TV's processor, image sharpness can be slightly diminished. Mitsubishi continues to make great strides in these areas, however. The display power behind Mitsubishi's planned DLPs is MDEA's exclusive 6-Color Processor. Able to produce many more colors than the typical flat-panel, this processor helps to alleviate the RGB rainbow effect that can occur with projection TVs.
With their DLP televisions, Mitsubishi is taking a slightly different route to get to 3D than other companies. And while DLPs will always be thicker than flat-panel televisions, they will also continue to be less expensive because Digital Light Projection is a slightly older technology. Production costs for projection TVs are so much lower than those of plasmas or LCDs, even the whopping 82-inch models will set consumers back $4,499. Rumored prices for smaller plasma and LCD TVs far exceed that, some nearing $10,000 in cost.
