Ricoh brings true high definition visual experience to home theater

Latest addition to quickly-expanding Ricoh projector lineup brings life-like images to homes, exhibits and more

MALVERN, Pa., May 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ricoh today announced the expansion of its projector lineup with its first-ever home theater projector, which combines the benefits of a world-class business technology with the latest entertainment features. The new home theater solution can display up to a 300" diagonal image in spaces such as family rooms.

The RGBRGB color wheel includes sections of cyan, yellow and white to increase brightness and provides the highest possible image quality for movie viewing. This feature, combined with the projector's true high definition (1920 x 1080 dpi) resolution makes it well suited to home theater use.

The new projector supports Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL), which enables users to display content from a variety of devices.
