Toshiba's 'Super Close' projectors

Home cinema

If you fancy a projector, but are limited for space, Toshiba’s new ET10 and ET20 ‘Super Close’ projectors with built-in surround-sound system, which can project a 0.65m image from just 20cm away from a wall, could solve your problem.

The good-looking ET10 and ET20 projectors use Toshiba’s own SCP (Super Close Projection) technology and can be used for throw distances from a mere 20cm, delivering an image size of 0.65m (diagonal) up to 1.6m, delivering a 2.9m (diagonal) image. In addition, the prjectors have built-in Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound and include a 30 Watt speaker system, five 16mm satellite speakers and one 2-inch subwoofer.  The ET20 model also features an integrated DVD player with DivX playback and is USB port compatible with JPEG photo format, MPEG1, MPEG2 and MPEG4 video formats.

The ET10 and ET20 (with integrated DVD player) will be available in the UK from April 2006 and will be priced at £1,099 and £1,299 respectively.
