David Naranjo, Director of Product Development for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America tapped me on the shoulder this morning with some exciting news.
First, a new range of 1080p DLP HDTV solutions are getting released this month including new 73" , 60", and 65" models. All units have S-3D capability and feature a new 6-Color Processor (TM) that promises superior color quality.
"Our new 2008 HDTVs are a direct result of listening to our customers, and we have delivered multi-dimensional products that will take their viewing experience to a new level," said Frank DeMartin, VP of Marketing at Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America.
The Diamond DLP HDTV solutions feature Smooth120Hz (TM) to optimize fast action scenes and Dark Detailer (TM) for higher contrast imagery along with a high gloss design and "Blue Light Accent".
The April, 2008 1080p DLP HDTV releases and MSRP include:
Sharky has an idea for a new type of NAW related contest, but we want to get your opinion first to make sure there would be enough participation.
The signature contest was a big success and we discovered that our members are very talented. We would like to try something new which has even bigger game resource prizes and would help drive new players to NAW and the S-3D community.
The idea is to produce an MTBS Nations at War promotional clip to upload to major video streaming pages like YouTube and through the MTBS Gallery.
The resources up for grabs include:
1st place: 20 fighter jets, your current level X $3,000 in NAW dollars, and a free building upgrade of your choice.
2nd place: 10 helicopters, your current level X $2,000 in NAW dollars, and one free factory upgrade of your choice.
3rd place: 10 BIG tanks, your current level X $1,000 in NAW dollars, and one market building upgrade.
There are a few rules to follow:
1) The clip can be uploaded for demonstration, but should only be hosted on MTBS for the time being. Please don’t submit to YouTube or similar sites until the the winner is announced. Upload the clips to the MTBS gallery in the meantime.
2) Your uploaded preview clip should be WMV or DIVX compressed AVI, and should not be bigger than 6 MB.
3) You can use whatever content you want as long as it is not protected by copyright. You can use programs like flstudio (demo) to create your own music.
4) The clip should be between 30 and 90 seconds.
I think this is a great idea, and we’d like to get your input to make sure it works. Post your thoughts HERE.
Ok, I know we’ve been promising a face lift for MTBS for some time now, and I hope it was worth the wait! Special thanks goes to Sharky, Watson, SirC, Cuddles, Welder, and the patience of the MTBS membership. MTBS’ new features include:
A new MTBS logo! (Thanks SirC!)
A drop down menu system.
Separate news and RSS feeds for site news, interviews, game reviews, and editorial.
A snapshot of the newest and most popular threads in the MTBS forums.
An MTBS Nations at War system that rewards members NAW money for bringing in active players.
The website’s banners need FLASH installed, so if you are seeking gaps where banners should be, that’s why.
Post your thoughts on the upgrade in the forums! There is still work to be done.
