Hitachi Announces Micro-Portable XGA Projector5 lbs., 1,200 ANSI lumens (January 07, 2002)
"The presentation industry is a continually evolving market, with consumers demanding higher resolution and greater functionality in a compact, lightweight unit," said Pete Denes, director of sales for Hitachi America, Ltd., Computer Division, Multimedia Presentation Products. "Hitachi developed the CP-X275W to meet the needs of mobile professionals, as well as discerning customers who demand an XGA projector in a small footprint."
Hitachi's CP-X275W packs a wealth of features and functionality in a compact unit that is easily transported between locations. With three video inputs, including component, composite and S-video, the CP-X275W provides a high level of connectivity and versatility for ease of use. The component input greatly expands the video options for the projector, as presenters can easily display feeds from DVD players or other home electronics devices. The CP-X275W also accepts HDTV video sources.
The CP-X275W is ideally suited for small venues because of the short-throw lens that comes standard with the projector, and because of the optional Whisper Mode. By utilizing the Whisper Mode, the operating noise is reduced from an already quiet 39 decibels to 34 decibels, with a reduction of only 20% brightness. This feature leads to less distraction from ambient noise, critical in any small venue.
Hitachi's CP-X275W projector, priced at $5,495, will be available in January 2002 through Hitachi's network of nationwide resellers. For more information, or to locate a dealer near you, please visit http://www.hitachi.com/mmpp, or call 1-800-225-1741.
