"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.

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.
