HP Adds to Award-winning iPAQ MP Series Microportable Projection Systems
MP1200 and MP3800 Offer Latest in Image Quality, Portability
PALO ALTO, Calif., June 24, 2002
HP (NYSE:HPQ) today announced two new members to the award-winning iPAQ MP series of microportable projection systems -- the MP1200 and MP3800. Both PC-compatible and simple-to-use units offer superior performance and value.
"In today's fast-paced business environment, there is a growing need for convenience and portability," said Steve Brown, general manager, HP Digital Projectors. "The iPAQ MP1200 and MP3800 provide these users the ultimate in both at affordable prices."
Compaq iPAQ MP3800
Leveraging the award-winning Compaq tower design, the iPAQ MP3800 offers mobile users vertical output in a powerful, executive-level mobile projector. Pumping out 1,300 lumens and weighing just 3.5 pounds, the iPAQ MP3800 is easily transportable, and with its simplified setup, users do not lose time unbundling the unit or running wires and cables.
The iPAQ MP3800 features AutoSynch, which automatically interprets and adjusts incoming computer graphics and video signals to ensure that the highest quality images are displayed -- just plug it in. User-friendly controls include an exclusive intuitive onscreen menu, allowing users to easily tweak presentations at the touch of a button and conduct on-the-spot adjustments throughout a presentation. Users can operate the bundled remote control from anywhere in the room and enable its easy hand-held access to a connected PC or projector menu selections.
Ideally suited for corporate applications, the iPAQ MP3800 includes integrated audio and video features. Compatible with most PCs, VCRs, DVDs and camcorders, it gives consumers many in-demand presentation capabilities at a fraction of the size and cost of a full-sized high-brightness projector.
The iPAQ MP3800 starts at estimated U.S. pricing of $3,499.(1)
Compaq iPAQ MP1200
Engineered for professional image quality, the Compaq iPAQ MP1200 is one of the best value XGA (1020 x 768 pixels) microportable projectors in the industry.
Featuring 1,000 lumens, integrated video, zoom lens, easy-to-use control features and more, the iPAQ MP1200 offers the top-quality presentation tools normally found in full-sized projectors and is perfect for both home and business use. The adjustable focal-length zoom lens and manual adjustable focus zoom allow the best image to be displayed from a single position -- eliminating the need to continually re-position the unit.
The iPAQ MP1200 is incredibly easy to set up and use. The exclusive Compaq icon-based onscreen display menu allows users to edit presentations at the touch of a button and conduct on-the-spot adjustments throughout a presentation.
In addition to displaying corporate presentations, the iPAQ MP1200 is compatible with DVI and VGA sources and can display integrated video and HDTV feeds, so there is no need for everyone to huddle around a monitor. And when used with the optional home-theater adapter pack, the highly versatile and compatible iPAQ MP1200 can present full-motion video from a PC, VCR, DVD or camcorder.
Estimated U.S. pricing for the iPAQ MP1200 starts at $2,299.(1) Additional product information is available at http://www.compaq.com/products/projectors/mp1200/.
