Vivid image and color reproduction for truly unforgettable presentations
High picture quality, functionality and reliability� The new 8000 Series of installation-model projectors from Mitsubishi Electric utilize advanced color reproduction technologies to create images that ensure maximum impact from your presentations. Aiming to reproduce true-to-life images, exhaustive measures have been taken to achieve precise color reproduction in addition to high brightness and high contrast. Projectors are easy to install and require minimal maintenance, further contributing to the superior reliability synonymous with the Mitsubishi Electric name. The new line-up offers a choice of five models from standard to high-resolution, all of which are sure to transform your presentations into unforgettable experiences.
High Image Quality
Vivid Color 7500lm Brightness and 2800:1 High Contrast
Features including impressive 7500lm brightness and a high contrast of 2800:1 allow the UD8900U to reproduce clear, sharp images regardless of venue size, be it a large meeting room or lecture hall. Whether coming from a computer, video-cassette player or other source, the reproduction of vivid images full of color is guaranteed.
Optional Color Wheel with High Color Brightness
In addition to the standard red (R)/green (G)/blue (B)/white (W) four-segment color wheel, an optional three-segment (R/G/B) color wheel is available. Compared to the standard color wheel, it reproduces each primary color (R/G/B) with high brightness and in vivid, deep tones, making it possible to project visuals rich with color.
White brightness is reduced when the optional color wheel is used.

These projectors are equipped with Mitsubishi Electric�s industry-leading, advanced image-processing algorithm, which is also used in our televisions and displays. The technology analyzes blurred components in the original images, estimates high-resolution data not provided in the original signal and corrects the image quality. The result is the projection of sharp, vivid images such as people’s faces in fine detail.
New Natural Color Matrix
This color balancing function enables more precise control by allowing each color to be adjusted independently. Conventional R/G/B/cyan (C)/magenta (M)/ yellow (Y) six-axis color gradation correction has been refined to include intermediate colors, resulting in 12-axis* correction.
Automatic projector-based correction in conjunction with conventional R/G/B/C/M/Y six-axis manual correction and intermediate-color six-axis manual correction.
Dynamic Contrast Correction
The 8000 series analyzes the image signal, detects the screen brightness distribution of each scene and then automatically corrects the signal in real-time to enhance contrast. This suppresses the loss of shadow details in dark scenes and highlight details in bright scenes, producing clear, dynamic images.

The trees in the middle of the screen have a sharply defined outline, producing a distinct sense of depth.
The dual lamp system and lamp relay function enable continuous operation with no risk of the image going out. Dust resistance and cooling performance are greatly enhanced by the automated self-cleaning filter and heat-pipe cooling system technologies that have proven so successful in air conditioners, enabling extended continuous use for monitoring and digital signage applications.
Various Lamp Relay Options
Continuous, bright projection is ensured through the utilization of a dual-lamp light source and a variety of setting options. When two lamps are in use, one of the lamps can be rested (turned off) once a day or week. Additionally, if only one lamp is being used and it goes out, an automatic back-up function activates the other lamp, enabling nonstop projection.
Automatic Cleaning Filter
For the 8000 Series, we’ve utilized the same mechanism (mesh filter and cleaning brush) that has a proven track record in Mitsubishi Electric air conditioners and air purifiers is utilized. It automatically prevents dust from building up in the radiator of the heat-pipe cooling unit for the digital micromirror device (DMD), thereby ensuring trouble-free use for extended periods of time.
Heat-pipe Cooling System
Compared to liquid-based cooling systems, this heat-pipe cooling system has a simplified structure and does not require a power supply, enabling a more compact design and cost reductions. Not only is it highly reliable, other benefits include exceptional energy savings, quiet operation and elimination of concerns regarding liquid leaking.
* Configuration may differ from the actual product.
Trapezoidal distortion caused when the projector is not positioned directly in front of the screen is corrected in both vertical and horizontal directions.
Pixel conversion is used to correct trapezoidal and diagonal distortion that causes oblique images, ensuring the proper aspect ratio.
Curved-surface Projection Correction
Projectors in the series are equipped with a distortion correction function that can be used when projecting images onto curved surfaces. Coordinates at the image�s four corners are adjusted, enabling the projection angle to be adjusted at the time of angled or stacked projection. It is extremely handy for unique applications like projecting images onto special surfaces such as pillars at event sites.
360° Projection Capability
Images can be projected over a full 360� range along the vertical axis* including reproduction on the ceiling or floor. The application possibilities are limitless.
* Excluding use in high-altitude mode.
Edge blending creates a seamless image by adjusting the brightness at adjoining edges when using multiple projectors side-by-side to reproduce single widescreen images. This feature can also be utilized for top-bottom projection or a combination of side-by-side and top-bottom images; for example, when images are projected from four projectors in a two-by-two arrangement.
The use of multiple projectors to create a larger image can result in color variations due to slight differences in projector image processing. The 8000 series projectors are equipped with a color matching function that resolves this problem. Each projector is adjusted so that the same colors are reproduced when multiple projectors are used simultaneously.
Power Zoom/Focus and Lens Shift
The zoom/focus and lens shift adjustment are powered by an electric motor, ensuring easy operation.
Ultra-short-throw Optional Lens (OL-XD8000EZ)
The newly introduced OL-XD8000EZ lens enables a projection distance as short as 0.6~0.8m.* Large images with high picture quality can be enjoyed even in small rooms where it�s not possible to secure a standard projection distance.
For a 40-inch projection screen (XD8600U/XD8500U only).
The newly introduced OL-XD8000EZ lens enables a projection distance as short as 0.6~0.8m (throw ratio: 0.8~1.0).
Long 4000hrs* Lamp Life
Designed with a lamp temperature controlling system, the 8000 series can support an estimated lamp rating of up to 4000 hours. The long estimated lamp life makes dramatic reductions in overall cost of ownership by decreasing the frequency of lamp replacements.
* When used in low mode.
Lamp Life Comparison
Lamp life specification is an estimate based on verification under proper conditions and is not the duration of the warranty. Lamp will shut-off automatically when usage reaches the specified estimated maximum lamp hours. Service life may vary widely depending on usage and operating environment and conditions, as well as users� adherence to the maintenance and cleaning procedures provided in the user manual.
Stand-by Wattage under 0.3W*
