Mitsubishi's 2012 RPTV Official Thread - 842, 742, 642, C12 and L75-A96

Mitsubishi Press Release:

Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America Brings Cinema-Quality Size, Picture,
and Sound to 2012 DLP Home Cinema TV Lineup

New models deliver big screens, more features, and better value that fit any home theater

IRVINE, Calif.—May 22, 2012—Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc., the leader in
large-screen television and digital displays, introduced today its 2012 large screen television line,
giving consumers even more options for creating fully-immersive, cinema-like home theater
experiences. Mitsubishi has built even more value into its new 73-inch, 82-inch, and 92-inch class
DLP® Home Cinema TV models with enhanced features, delivering a vivid HD picture and highquality
sound. New models include two DLP Home Cinema TVs at 92-inch class and four models at
82-inch class.

“Consumers crave large screen televisions that deliver the most immersive home entertainment
experience available, which has made the large screen TV market the fastest growing TV segment,”
said Max Wasinger, Executive Vice President, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America. “There is
no question that ‘bigger is better,’ so we’re introducing large screens that give consumers an
unmatched viewing experience for movies, sports, gaming, and 3D content. As we maintain our size
advantage in the television market, we’ve also built in more value and features for consumers who
demand TVs with bigger screens and better sound at prices that meet their budget.”

Mitsubishi DLP Home Cinema TVs are powered by DLP technology, which also powered most
of the digital cinemas in theaters all over the world. It offers unparalleled picture quality. DLP Mirrors
switch faster than other display technologies for a smoother picture with less blur. The 92-inch class
DLP Home Cinema TV offers four times the viewing area of a 46-inch class.

Mitsubishi’s new 842 Series, which includes its flagship 92-inch class DLP Home Cinema TV,
conveys the most immersive home theater experience available, combining HD or 3D video and sound
delivered through a massive screen and built-in 16-speaker immersive sound technology (IST). “Sound
bars and home theater audio are the fastest-growing consumer electronics segment because consumers want to match great video with great audio. By integrating theater-quality sound with cinema-like
screens, Mitsubishi raises the bar for home theater viewing,” continued Wasinger. This powerful array
includes center channel mode, surround preouts and variable subwoofer outputs that put viewers
directly in the action of any sporting event, action movie, or video game. The 842 Series also includes
models in 73-inch and 82-inch class screen sizes.

Mitsubishi will also introduce in its 2012 product line a new 75-inch class LaserVue television
model, the L75-A96, the latest television in Mitsubishi's laser TV line. The only consumer laser TV on
the market, the LaserVue offers stunning Cinema Color in HD and 3D and is powered by Mitsubishi's
exclusive laser light engine. The L75-A96 is a highly energy efficient television, operating at less than
85 watts, below the 2012 Energy Star 5.3 requirement of 108 watts.

StreamTV™ movies and apps from Mitsubishi, available on the 742 and 842 Series, provide
instant access to an extensive library of high-quality online entertainment and social media content.
StreamTV, powered by VUDU TM, streams movies in HDX, the highest quality streaming content
available. The Internet-connected platform offers HD movies and television titles, crisp 3D streaming,
and over 100 different streaming applications, including Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and the New York

As part of the 2012 product line, Mitsubishi has added enhancements to its 3D TV capabilities
in the 842 Series. A new built-in Bluetooth RF transmitter, which uses new “Full HD 3D Glasses” TM
format, provides a seamless and vivid 3D experience and increases the number of models and brands
of 3D glasses that can be used with the TV.

“More Americans are enjoying 3D movies at home as more content becomes available and the
experience becomes more affordable. Televisions with 3D and 3D eyewear are much more affordable
now, and we’re giving consumers who want to add that extra dimension to their home entertainment
more options than ever,” said James Chan, Vice President, Marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual
Solutions America.

This year the 742 Series adds its own 92-inch class model, which includes a Clear Contrast
Screen that mitigates ambient light through a specially formulated screen material to deliver deep
blacks, bright whites, and a wide range of colors in between.

Mitsubishi is debuting two new high value big screens at 82-inch class in the 642 Series and the
C12 Series. The C12 Series is the most cost-efficient DLP Home Cinema TV in the line, offering
consumers a large screen at an unbeatable price—perfect for consumers who want the biggest bang for
their buck. The 642 Series also adds an 82-inch class model, providing an immersive HD and 3D

Re: Mitsubishi's 2012 RPTV Official Thread - 842, 742, 642, C12 and L75-A96

A week ago we just purchased a wd-73740 (last years model) for the living room and love it. I can't believe we have 73 inches of HD bliss for less than $1200.00. I'm glad I didn't get the 65" plasma for close to $3k...I would have killed myself for spending that much money and settling for a 65" screen.

We upgraded from a Samsung 52" (2008 model I think) LCD and the Mitsubishi DLP is much more enjoyable. Did a quick calibration with the Disney wow disc and it looks fantastic.

I've always been a fan of DLP's, in 2004 we purchased a Samsung hlp5063 DLP, heavy usage of about 10 hrs a day. Replaced the color wheel myself in 2010 and went thru about 4 bulbs. Still looks excellent and running strong today. It's now in my sons room at 6-8 hrs a day.
