Mitsubishi 'Goes Big' With 92-Inch 3D HDTV
Washington, D.C. (June 2, 2011)
-- Mitsubishi has unveiled its 'Go Big' 2011 HDTV lineup which
includes a 92-inch, 3D DLP set priced at $5,999.
This is the first look at Mitsubishi's new strategy since it
announced last March that it's exiting
the LCD business to concentrate
on large-screen televisions. The company had been struggling to
compete in the LCD category, falling behind such companies as
Vizio, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and LG in sales of the flat-screen
set. However, Mitsubishi is one of the few TV makers to offer
microdisplay rear and front-projection sets larger than 73
The 92-inch set is featured in Mitsubishi's new Diamond 840
Series which also includes 73-inch and 82-inch models, priced at
$2,599 and $4,199 respectively. The Diamond 840 Series includes
a 16-speaker Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound system and
Bluetooth Audio. Mitsubishi says the sets also come with a
'Clear Contrast Screen,' which promises to deliver deeper black
colors and brighter whites.
The company adds that the 92-inch set offers four times the
viewing area of a 46-inch LCD TV.
“Consumers are demanding
outrageously large screens with the high speed response and
picture quality to transform 3D TV watching into a
bigger-than-life, fully immersive experience,” Mitsubishi said
in a press release.
Mitsubishi's new 740 series also include wireless Internet
built-in to the televisions. (The 840 series includes wireless
Internet capability). The Net feature provides instant access to
such online services as Vudu's VOD, Pandora's music service,
Facebook, Twitter and Picasa.
The 740 series includes a 73-inch and 82-inch model, priced
respectively at $2,099 and $3,499.
Mitsubishi's new 640 series includes a 73-inch set for $1,599.
The TV also includes built-in 3D, 3 HDMI inputs and 120 Hz
And, finally, Mitsubishi has introduced a 75-inch laser TV,
called LaserVue, which includes built-in wireless Internet and
Vudu movies. The company did not disclose a price for the
75-inch set nor specific launch dates for the entire 2011 line
