According to the projector's specifications, the XD221U includes dual 15-pin computer inputs as well as S-Video and RCA video inputs, so users can switch between a computer presentation and video. It also includes a built-in RJ-45 port for remote operation and management over a LAN, WAN, or the Internet. It also has an RS-232 connection for third party control devices and support for a computer loop out for external monitor display.
When not in use, the XD221U has a noise level of 26dBA in low mode. Mitsubishi also designed the projector to use less than 1W of power in low standby mode, and used lead-free solder on all printed circuit boards. To address theft, the projector includes a security bar built into the chassis so administrators can lock down the projector.
Kozuki points out that DLP technology is significant for the education field. "The total cost of ownership is lower because they are filter-free, unlike LCD models," he says.
The XD221U's estimated lamp life is up to 4000 hours in low mode and 3000 hours in standard mode. The projector is also designed with a top access for lamp maintenance, eliminating the need to unmount a ceiling-mounted projector to change the lamp.
According to the company, instant shut-off lets users make rapid exits after a class using a quick power-down feature to accommodate tight classroom or conference room schedules without damage to the projector.
Mitsubishi offers government, education, and nonprofit discount pricing for its projectors through its network of authorized Mitsubishi dealers. The projector is currently available and comes with Mitsubishi's three-year limited warranty on parts and labor plus a one-year limited warranty on the lamp. Mitsubishi also offers a three-year express replacement program that offers replacement within one business day.
