Performance, Support and Efficiency Make Hitachi s CP-X206 Projector The Right Choice For Temple Independent School District(October 07, 2008)
The initial round of 506 Hitachi CP-X206 projectors for classrooms are ceiling-mounted to provide unobstructed views for any sized classroom. Additionally, they are integrated with a document camera and a laptop computer offering teachers and students a user-friendly and reliable system for displaying visual media. The Hitachi CP-X206 projectors offer incredible performance, but the Temple ISD, founded in 1883 and celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, was looking for more in a projector that would take their school system into the 21st century. In an era of tightened budgets and soaring energy costs, they needed a projector that was both cost-effective and energy-conscious, and the Hitachi CP-X206 projector delivered on all counts.
We had evaluated DLP® technology for our projectors, but in comparison testing Troxell was able to show us that the output of the Hitachis CP-X206s LCD display in terms of brightness and color accuracy rivaled that of the DLP format and for substantially less cost, said Luann Hughes, technology coordinator at Temple ISD.
According to Hughes, the Hitachi CP-X206 provided other advantages, as well. Its audio pass-through capability means that when teachers are using audio-only sources, such as CDs or audio files played through laptops, the Hitachi CP-X206s lamp can be put into standby mode, thus curbing power consumption and conserving bulb life.
Furthermore, Hitachis PJMan systems management software ? provided free with all networkable projector purchases ? allows central control over all of the projectors in a school, eliminating the potential for projectors to be left on when not in use. And then there is Hitachis famous dedication to support and service. Every question and query to Hitachi was returned promptly via voice or email, said Gary Siddons, Account Executive on the project for Troxell Communications. Thats characteristic of Hitachi and yet another reason the Temple ISD decided company to partner with on this important project.
The Hitachi CP-X206 delivers performance value and versatility for a variety of environments. The CP-X206 offers a remote control and maintenance via a LAN network connection, while Hitachi's proprietary My Image technology allows administrators to send still images to every projector on the network. The CP-X206 projector also features a new hybrid filter, allowing for 2,000 hours before replacement, located on the side of the chassis. It also contains a top door lamp, enabling easy replacement when the projector is ceiling mounted.
