IRVINE, Calif. (Sept. 11, 2007) – Toshiba’s Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced the company’s latest premier DLP® BrilliantColorTM mobile projector with “extreme short projection” capabilities for greater luminance and larger images from a shorter distance. The TDPEX20U projector features Windows Vista® networking capabilities, integrated wireless1
functionality for quick set-up and sequential presentations, as well as remote network management and extensive multimedia connectivity.

The compact and stylish TDP-EX20U projector is designed for education, mobile professionals, corporate customers, small-to-medium sized businesses, consumers and Pro AV installation, all for an MSRP of $1,989.

To enhance the learning experience at all levels of classroom instruction, business use and digital home entertainment, the portable TDP-EX20U projector’s “extreme short projection” capabilities produce a remarkable 60-inch image from just three feet away. “Extreme short projection” produces more luminance or brightness because the image has a shorter distance to travel, reducing the amount of ambient light that can harm image quality.

“There isn’t a better short throw projector on the market at this low price,” said Sam Malik, director of projector sales and marketing, Toshiba Digital Products Division. “Other projectors with short throw capabilities cannot match the TDP-EX20U’s price, value-added features and portability.” The TDP-EX20U projector can be ceiling mounted and unlike conventional projectors, the “extreme short projection” technology eliminates eye glare and the problem of screen shadowing when the presenter is close to the screen. When used as a portable projector, the “extreme short projection” technology enables users to present at various table heights such as at the end of a desk, conference table or even a low
coffee table.

The TDP-EX20U projects fine text and images with an impressive 2,300 ANSI lumens and a rich, vibrant DLP® BrilliantColorTM display. The DLP® BrilliantColorTM technology utilizes up to six separate colors: red, blue, green, cyan, yellow and magenta for a wider variety of accurate, vibrant colors that won’t fade over time. BrilliantColorTM technology enables a 50 percent increase in the brightness of colors. The projector also features an XGA 1024 x 768 native resolution, razor sharp contrast ratio of 2000:1 and offers on-the-go professionals the option to deliver “PC-free” presentations with a USB thumb drive by simply storing the presentation in JPEG format and connecting to the USB port.

Users can also expect seamless presentations with remote network management from this projector. The TDP-EX20U can be networked and controlled remotely via a wired LAN connection, which is password protected for increased security. Due to the TDP-EX20U projector’s Windows Vista® network capabilities, presenters can wirelessly transfer JPEG files from a notebook with ease, for slide show presentations or images embedded in documents. The built-in IEEE 802.11g wireless1 functionality of the TDPEX20U
delivers fast set-up time and enables presenters to easily connect their wireless notebooks to the projector from anywhere in the room, and deliver sequential presentations without the need for cables. The Toshiba TDP-EX20U projector’s network capability also allows IT administrators to remotely control the projector over a network and receive e-mail notification via SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) for
issues related to temperature, fan and lamp status.

HDTV/DTV compatible, Toshiba’s TDP-EX20U integrates data, video and audio features necessary for high-end multimedia presentations. The projector comes packaged in a sleek, high-tech casing with multiple computer inputs (two RGB 15-pin), two video inputs for composite and S-video, two components (shared with computer inputs), onewatt stereo speaker, type A USB port and both wired and wireless connectivity options. Other features unique to the TDP-EX20U include variable audio out, digital zoom and auto
set, which allows users to automatically synchronize the settings between their PCs and
the projector.

The Toshiba TDP-EX20U projector also includes the following leading edge features:
• Toshiba’s unique Natural Color Enhancer4 color correction circuitry, delivering
exceptionally sharp and vivid images that more closely match original
presentation colors;
• “Blackboard” function with wall color adjustment. Simply select a wall color,
such as green, black, brown, blue or beige, for a clearer display on non-screen
• One-touch auto setup on a fully-loaded presentation remote to ensure worryfree,
professional presentations even in the most unforgiving environments;
• Digital zoom function on the remote control allows the presenter to zoom in on
a specific image or presentation element, such as spreadsheet numbers or
other important details;
• Password protection and key-lock function to help prevent unauthorized use;
• Instant power shut down capability that enables the projector to power off
instantly once disconnected from the power outlet with no cool-down time
• Automatic digital keystone correction system, allowing presenters to adjust
errors quickly and easily for a proportional, squared display;
• Whisper-quiet operation of only 28 decibels (dB) (in low mode) – quieter than a
soft conversation;
• In addition, the projector features convenient lamp access on the top panel for
easy lamp replacement, even when the projector is ceiling mounted.
The Toshiba TDP-EX20U is currently available through Toshiba’s authorized
distributors, VARs, mail-order outlets and www.toshibadirect.com.
