San Diego — Hitachi America’s ubiquitous platform systems division has introduced the CP-X205 and CP-X305 3LCD projectors that provide networking connectivity through an RJ-45 port.
Both models share identical chassis to their respective predecessors, the CP-X200 and CP-X300, Hitachi said.
The CP-X205 3LCD projector offers a brightness of 2,200 ANSI lumens and a light weight of 8.8 pounds. The CP-X305 features a brightness of 2,600 ANSI lumens at a weight of 8.8 pounds. Both models offers advanced networking connectivity through an RJ-45 port, allowing for control and management of multiple projectors from a remote location, the firm said.
The CP-X205 and CP-X305 also offer XGA (1024 by 768) resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio. They feature two RGB inputs, MyScreen/MyMemory preset options and a remote control with Hitachi’s “MyButtons” function. Both offer a low 29dB noise rating (in Whisper mode), 1:1.2 manual zoom and digital keystone correction.
Both projectors offer a side mounted filter for easy maintenance, as well as a top door lamp. Additional features such as Input Source Naming, component/composite/S-Video inputs and digital gamma correction add to the versatility of both models, Hitachi claimed.
Additionally, the CP-X205 and CP-X305 address the issue of equipment theft in schools, as they are equipped with a security bar, Kensington security slot and transition detector (a sensor located inside the projector that recognizes when the projector has been moved). A 7-watt audio output in both models enables a complete audio/video presentation.
“We have seen an increasing demand for networked presentation systems in all fixed-install applications, from schools to corporate environments to houses of worship,” said Pete Denes, sales VP of Hitachi America’s ubiquitous business platform systems division, business group. “The Hitachi CP-X205 and CP-X305 3LCD projectors address this need while providing the unmatched versatility and performance characteristic of Hitachi’s complete projector line.”
