Ricoh PJ HDC5420 home theater projector is their maiden attempt

ricoh-hdc4520Ricoh might be a name that many of us who work at offices are familiar with, what with the kind of photostat machines that they churn out. However, did you know that Ricoh too, has its fair share of projectors, and its first-ever home theater projector has been announced? I am referring to the Ricoh PJ HD5420 which will merge the benefits of a world-class business technology alongside the latest entertainment features. This is a spanking new home theater solution which is able to display up to a 300″ diagonal image in smaller spaces such as family rooms, now how about that?

This merry bunch of capabilities will come together in order to transform the Ricoh PJ HDC5420 into an excellent choice when it comes to entertainment applications, ranging from 2D to 3D movie viewing as well as video gaming where home theater environments are concerned, in addition to professional business uses such as clubs, museums and restaurants.

The abilities of the Ricoh PJ HDC5420 should not be underestimated, as it is touted to provide life-like images thanks to a six-segment RGBRGB color wheel which can deliver richer colors and faithful skin tone reproduction. As for the RGBRGB color wheel, it will include sections of cyan, yellow and white to increase brightness and provides the highest possible image quality for movie viewing, and when merging such a feature with the projector’s true high definition (1920 x 1080 dpi) resolution, it is a whole lot more suitable for home theater use than anything else.

A 0.65″ DLP chip underneath the hood and a 16:9 aspect ratio will be able to help ensure a true high definition visual experience, while other features include support for multiple image and color correction modes, letting users obtain the image quality that they want regardless of projection surface color, ambient lighting conditions, or video format. Heck, even Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) is supported, allowing users to display content from a variety of devices. The asking price stands at $1,165 for the Ricoh PJ HDC5420 if you are interested.
