Chula Vista, Calif.
- The business group of Hitachi Home Electronics (America) introduced Monday a
3LCD-based video projector with built-in networking capabilities and a low
operating cost, targeting corporate and institutional placements.

Model CP-X3010N,
which is shipping now at a $3,395 suggested retail, has a brightness level of
3,000 ANSI lumens and a 2,000:1 contrast ratio.

Also featured is 16
watts of built-in audio, a low noise rating of 29 dBA in eco mode, and a lamp
life of 3,000 hours in standard mode and 6,000 hours in eco mode.

Hitachi includes
its My Buttons functionality that allows two programmable buttons on the
projector to execute any projector command.

The CP-X3010N also
supports closed captioning and input source naming.

For networking, Hitachi
adds it new Projector Management Application (PJMan) Version 7 software, which controls,
diagnoses and manages an individual or group of Hitachi projectors from a
single location.

A projector control
application (PJCtrl) allows projector control through a toolbar on PC desktop,
which, Hitachi said, helps to reduce operational costs.

Users can control
up to five of the same Hitachi projectors simultaneously and each can be
customized to individual preferences with the PJCtrl.

For security, a My
Image function allows AV/IT administrators to transfer still images, such as
emergency alerts, from a PC to each projector on the network. Images are
automatically displayed on all the projectors, including the projectors that
are not in use at the time.

Hitachi said this
is useful for networking together multiple projector applications across a
large space, such as a school, campus or large corporate environment.

Projector
Messenger Application software, meanwhile, allows an administrator to send
real-time (or stored) text messages that appear on the screen of the projector.

This is ideal for
sending campus-wide announcements and important notifications, the company
said. When used in conjunction with the scheduling function, notices can be
shown at preset times, making each screen a virtual message board.
