CEDIA, September 11, 2009 – Samsung Electronics America, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, today announced the release of the A600, the latest A Series (A/V) Home Theater Projector with full High Definition (HD) 1080p performance. The A600 builds on Samsung's engineering depth and leverages the image performance and color quality of the acclaimed A800 and A900 full HD 1080p "Joe Kane Signature Series" projectors. The A600 will be available for an estimated retail price (ERP) of US$1,795.
"The A600 is the latest addition to our growing home theater line up and provides an entry point for savvy consumers and home theater enthusiasts looking for an affordable solution that does not compromise picture quality and color performance," said Doug Albregts, vice president, Information Technology Division, Samsung Electronics America Inc. "We continue to execute against our strategy of meeting the needs of the diverse and growing market segments that rely on Samsung for compelling, dependable, innovative solutions."
The A600 features rounded edges, a glossy black finish, low operating noise and weighs less than 13 pounds. With its high bright lamp wattage at 220 watts, the lamp life can last up to 4,000 hours in eco mode or 3,000 hours in high bright. With a shorter throw ratio, 1.99, the A600 offers the flexibility of being placed on the floor closer to the screen or mounted on the ceiling.
The A600 has full connectivity and offers popular video capabilities for Blu-ray as well as an input for a PC. With two HDMI and inputs for component, composite and S-Video, the A600 is functional right out of the box. For PC connectivity, an analog 15-pin VGA style input is also available for video streaming off the Web or home presentations.
"For people interested in creating a home theater experience, but stopped short due to the costs, the A600 is a great alternative to the entry-level projectors that lack the full HD quality," said Tom Grau, senior product marketing manager, projectors, Information Technology Division, Samsung Electronics America. "We have incorporated the technology of our higher end models into the A600 to bring the movie-like viewing experience within reach of more people."
