ORLANDO, Florida, June 12, 2013 — Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group today announced the introduction of its CP-X8170, CP-WX8265 and CP-WU8460 3LCD projectors, offering the highest brightness ever available in Hitachi’s Installation Series lineup along with upgraded performance and connectivity and iPad and iPhone compatibility.
The CP-X8170, CP-WX8265 and CP-WU8460 deliver 7,000, 6,500 and 6,000 ANSI lumens brightness with XGA, WXGA and WUXGA resolution respectively and are the slimmest projectors in their category, making them ideal for larger conference rooms, auditoriums, educational environments, houses of worship and other professional applications.
All models feature Hitachi’s new, exclusive Accentualizer image processing with sharpness, gloss and shade controls that enhance sharpness, improve contrast and make fine details clearer. The result is superior, more realistic image quality—even in brightly lit rooms.
All three projectors provide Picture-In-Picture, which is ideal for videoconferencing, and Picture-By-Picture, which displays two images next to each other. Two digital images or a digital and analog image can be displayed simultaneously in either mode. All the projectors include a motorized lens shift system that enables lens shift, zoom and focus to be perfectly dialed in and increases installation flexibility. The projectors’ Perfect Fit 2 function enables quick image adjustment by moving its four corners one at a time, and corrects for pincushion distortion and keystoning if necessary.
All the projectors provide a full complement of connectivity options including two HDMI, one USB-A and two USB-B inputs, analog video and audio inputs and outputs and an RS-232C A/V system control port. All three models are iPad and iPhone-compatible via Hitachi’s Projector Quick Connection feature. An iPad or iPhone can be used as a remote control to operate the projectors; alternatively, images from the projectors can be displayed on an iPad or iPhone.
The CP-X8170, CP-WX8265 and CP-WU8460 offer network compatibility via wired or optional wireless connection (via a USB wireless adapter) and can be remotely operated via a local area network (LAN) using Hitachi’s PJMan projector management application. The projectors all include Hitachi’s PC-Less Presentation feature that enables users to project images directly from a USB drive or other USB storage device, eliminating the need to connect a computer. The projectors also feature optional, interchangeable lenses to accommodate for different throw distance requirements.
Additional features include Hitachi’s exclusive Input Source Naming, Eco Mode energy-saving operation, a remote that provides MyMemory, MyText, MySource and MyScreen buttons for fast access to frequently used functions and sources and more.
