— The CP-X615 features networking connectivity and Hitachiâ€™s
proprietary My Image software, allowing administrators to utilize
the network as a campus notification system. —
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, March 4, 2008 â€” Offering state-of-the-art management, control and security functionality, Hitachi America, Ltd., Ubiquitous Platform Systems Division today introduced the CP-X615 3LCD projector, which combines large-venue performance, networking capability and Hitachiâ€™s proprietary My Image technology.
Featuring Hitachi PJManÂ® software, the CP-X615 can be remotely controlled and maintained through a LAN network connection. The network functionality also makes it easy to control multiple projectors in different rooms and to monitor functions such as remaining lamp life. Additionally, the CP-X615 features Hitachiâ€™s proprietary My Image technology, which allows AV/IT administrators to transfer still images, such as emergency alerts, from a PC to each projector on the network. When the My Image function is utilized, the images are automatically displayed on all the projectors, including ones that are not in use at the time. This is ideal for applications in which multiple projectors are networked across a large space, such as a school, campus or large corporate environment.
The CP-X615 offers a brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. Additionally, it displays images via a 1.2x zoom lens and is outfitted with a bayonet lens that can support up to four optional lenses for specific application needs based on the size and environment of a room. The CP-X615 also features horizontal and vertical lens shift.
Further lowering the total cost of ownership, the CP-X615 features a lamp door on top of the projector, making lamp replacement easier. Additionally, a high-performance air filter on the side means less time will be spent on maintenance. The CP-X615 also offers Hitachiâ€™s proprietary MyText functionality, allowing users to customize the start-up screen with their own text. The CP-X615 features an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) input, allowing for the transmission of uncompressed digital audio/video streams. Other inputs include an RGB port, BNC, Component, S-Video and Composite connectivity. The CP-X615 features a USB port that allows for mouse control.
The CP-X615 also offers advanced anti-theft features, including a transition detector (a sensor located inside the projector that recognizes when the projector has been moved), as well as a security bar and Kensington slot. The CP-X615 also boasts four 4W built-in speakers, providing sufficient sound without the need for external audio devices.
â€œIn addition to Hitachiâ€™s industry-leading anti-theft features, our customers have also asked for projectors that facilitate emergency notification across an entire network,â€? said Pete Denes, vice president of sales, Hitachi America, Ltd., Ubiquitous Platform Systems Division. â€œThe CP-X615 3LCD projector simplifies system management and communication for A/V administrators.â€?
