Mitsubishi releases retina-searing HD8000 ultra-bright projector

Steven Kim

Mitsubishi has released a real light cannon with its HD8000, a 1080p 3LCD model that pumps out 5000 lumens so you don't have to live like a video vampire that hides your HD-feeding away from the sun. With this kind of light output, picture quality (black levels, contrast) will take hit and bulb life might not be great, but we figure the target market of sports bars and restaurants won't mind that; what will be downer will be the lack of an HDMI input. To be fair, there is a DVI input and Mitsubishi even throws a DVI-to-HDMI converter in the box, but for $15,000 you shouldn't have to use dongles from day one.
