Mitsubishi showed off its lineup of new Microdisplay DLP Televisions. Featuring 1280x720 pixel DLP HD2 chips, these televisions feature AMVP2, PerfectColor, Dark Detailer, DefinEdge (VSM), 480-line motion-adaptive 3D Y/C comb filter, auto film mode (2:3 pull-down detection) and a removable diamond display shield. All incoming signals are automatically upconverted to 720p and there are 6 picture format modes (scaling options) for analogue 480i/480p and 4:3 input sources. In addition, two picture format modes are available for analogue 720p/1080i and digital 16:9 sources.

Several PIP/POP modes are offered including split screen and channel preview/input strobe. NetCommand returns in version 4.0, accompanied by a fully-illuminated remote control. All models feature an abundance of inputs including IEEE 1394, memory card slots, HDMI, Dolby Digital and component video inputs.

A CableCARD slot is included on the new Mitsubishi Microdisplays and offer digital scaling and display of cable signals without having to rely of mass-market sub-par scalers found in many cable company-supplied set-top boxes.
