Mitsubishi has started to trickle out shipments of their latest massive DLP rear projector set, and it’s loaded with all sorts of newfangled goodies to give you the best picture possible.
The new Mitsubishi WD-73734 features a huge 73-inch diagonal widescreen, but is only 17.5-inches deep. It’s got the latest in DLP technology with a 6-color light wheel, and support for x.v. Color, which extends the available color gamut by up to 80% over conventional sets. The set also has four HDMI 1.3 inputs, which can handle those wide color gamut devices like the Sony PlayStation 3 and newer high definition disc players. The set also has something Mitsubishi calls the DarkDetailer, which is just a fancy name for a dynamic iris system. This should help the set produce exceptional contrast levels.
The $3900 television outputs at full 1080p native resolution (and accepts 1080p source signals,) so you won’t miss any little detail from those high-def signals. Plus, Mitsubishi’s Plush1080p upscaling circuitry should make the most of less-than-perfect content as well. Of course there’s a built-in digital tuner, capable of receiving over-the-air HD broadcasts.
