Gig Harbor, Washington, February 18, 2015 – Hitachi has a proven track record with the Peninsula School District of Gig Harbor, Washington. The Peninsula School District, made up of three high schools, four middle schools and eight elementary schools, has Hitachi CP-TW2503 projectors installed in 43 classrooms throughout the District to help student engagement. Peninsula School District’s goal is a seamless technology experience for teachers in the classroom and Hitachi is able to help achieve that goal.
The District’s Technology Committee evaluated the effect of technology in the classroom and determined that a good computer, connected to a projection system, had the biggest impact on the largest number of students. Based on these findings, the District wanted to deploy the best projectors the market had to offer.
“We have been installing projectors in classrooms for five years,” said Debra Wolfley, Purchasing and Inventory Clerk for Peninsula School District Technical Services. “Hitachi provides an image that is bright and crisp – better than any other brand of projector we’ve used or tested and is perfect for daytime use. Hitachi’s ultra short throw CP-TW2503 is the best option for those classrooms needing a ceiling mounted projector.”
The Peninsula School District did not want to disrupt the learning or teaching process with the installation of the Hitachi projectors. The Hitachi CP-TW2503 projectors have been quietly integrated into the classrooms, which is what the staff wanted to achieve – a seamless transition to high-end technology to further the education of the students.
“Teachers are able to project apps and Internet content via the projector in every classroom in every school,” explained Wolfley. Hitachi has been successful in providing projectors that are clear, bright and easy to use.
