Outstanding Brightness and High Contrast

With its dual-lamp design, the WD8700U is capable of displaying images at a brilliant 7300 ANSI lumens. This level of brightness is essential for displaying in large areas such as conference halls, or where there is a large amount of ambient light (e.g., airports). The WD8700U also features an impressive 2800:1 contrast ratio for image reproduction that is rich in colour.

          

Super Resolution Technology

This innovative processing algorithm has been designed in-house by Mitsubishi Electric. The technology analyses blurred components of low resolution images, then estimates how a high resolution version of the images would appear and corrects them for fine, detailed reproduction quality.

Dynamic Colour Contrast

The WD8700U uses signal analysis to detect the screen brightness distribution of projected images, then automatically adjusts the signal in real-time to boost the contrast. The result is clear, dynamic images with distinct shadow reproduction.

Optional Colour Wheel with High Colour Brightness 

In addition to the standard four segment (R/G/B/W) colour wheel, an optional three segment (R/G/B) colour wheel is available. This optional wheel reproduces each primary colour in high brightness and with vivid, deep tones.

Lamp Relay Mode

For installations where the projector is run continuously for long periods of time, the Lamp Relay function can be used to alternately rest each lamp for a set period of time. This allows for non-stop functionality while at the same time prolonging the life of each lamp.

 

Heat-Pipe Cooling System

The heat-pipe cooling system has a number of advantages over liquid cooling systems. The system does not require power meaning lower energy costs, no moving parts means quieter projector operation and with no liquid required there is no chance of spill damage.

 

Automatic Self-Cleaning Filter

Utilising the same technology found in Mitsubishi Electric air-conditioners, the self-cleaning filter prevents dust build-up in the radiator of the heat-pipe cooling system of the WD8700U, saving on maintenance downtime and ensuring trouble free use for extended periods.

 

 

Lamp Life up to 4000 hours

Designed with optimum lamp temperature control, each lamp in the WD8700U has a life of up to 4000 hours*. This greatly reduces the overall cost of ownership, as the projector will require fewer lamp changes over the long run.

*When used in Low Lamp  mode

 

Network connectivity for remote access and control

The WD8700U is equipped with an RJ45 Ethernet connection, providing an A/V manager with the ease and convenience of remote monitoring and management. When used with Crestron™ software, integrated control of up to 250 projectors is possible. The WD8700U is also compatible with AMX Device Discovery and PJLink™ software.

   

   

Natural Colour Matrix

In addition to conventional red (R), green (G) and blue (B) colour gradations, the intermediate colours of yellow (Y), magenta (M) and cyan (C) can each be controlled independently.

 

Geometric Correction

The WD8700U includes several different methods for correcting image geometry. Keystone correction fixes trapezoidal distortion, Cornerstone correction fixes diagonal distortion and Curved Surface correction allows for images to be portrayed accurately on curved or round surfaces such as pillars.

Curved Projection

 

Edge Blending and Colour Matching

Edge Blending and Colour Matching allows users to create seamless images when using multiple projectors side-by-side to create a single large image.

Edge Blending

Six Optional Lenses, including New Ultra-Short model (OL-XD8000EZ)

There are six optional lenses available for the 8000 series that cater for any room size. The newly introduced OL-XD8000EZ is an ultra-short throw model that capable of projecting a 100" image from as little as 1.7 metres away.

Demonstration Mode

With Demonstration Mode, the screen is split in half with the right-hand side showing the impact that the Super Resolution, Natural Colour Matrix and Dynamic Contrast Correction features have on the displayed image. A great way to see the benefits of the WD8700U's image enhancing features.
