Hitachi Shipping its iPJ-AW250N Interactive Projector

Utilizing infrared communication, the projector reportedly delivers all the functionality of an interactive whiteboard without the board.

Hitachi America, Ltd., is now shipping its iPJ-AW250N Ultimate Interactive Projector, says a written statement from Hitachi.

Utilizing infrared communication, the projector delivers all the functionality of an interactive whiteboard without the board, Hitachi says. The iPJ-AW250N also utilizes ultrasonic communication, which helps to overcome interference issues associated with devices that communicate via infrared.

Ideal for education and corporate environments, the iPJ-AW250N features an ultra-short-throw lens that allows it to be mounted close to a wall or projection surface, the company says. That can prevent obstructed images and shadows, with no light shining in the presenter’s eyes. The projector can also be easily placed on a tabletop if it needs to be moved from room to room.

Using Hitachi’s pen-size Interactive Control, users have the ability to write, draw and manipulate and resize projected images, the firm says. The iPJ-AW250N features a simple menu system that provides ready access to all functions. The projector comes with a dynamic set of teaching and lesson-building tools for educators. Business users will find a wealth of graphics tools, templates, colors and resources for creating compelling lessons and presentations, and PowerPoint, Word, PDF, JPEG and other formats can be imported directly into the iPJ-AW250N.

The iPJ-AW250N offers a full complement of video and audio inputs including HDMI, S-Video and composite video inputs, RGB computer video inputs and outputs, stereo mini-jack, RCA and microphone audio inputs, and audio and video outputs. A remote control is also included.
