Hitachi New Rental Staging Projector

CHULA VISTA, Calif., November 24, 2008 — Effectively resetting the standard for performance and versatility in rental/staging, videoconferencing and large house of worship applications, Hitachi Home Electronics (America), Inc., Business Group has introduced the CP-X10000 3LCD Professional Series projector. The CP-X10000 projector is the first model in Hitachi’s new 3LCD Professional Series, offering a brightness of 7500 ANSI lumens, as well as a 2500:1 contrast ratio.

The CP-X10000 features inorganic optics, which means longer projector life. The CP-X10000 also offers a 10,000-hour filter, making maintenance easier than ever before. The ultra-wide range lens shift and 10-bit full digital video processing add a new level of dynamic presentation, while networking connectivity enables remote maintenance and management.

Adding to the versatility of the CP-X10000 projector are six bayonet-style lens options, which offer a wide range of throw distances for different size audiences. The CP-X10000 includes an RS-232 network bridge for serial pass through, along with a mechanical shutter for blank mode. The CP-X10000 also offers Closed Captioning functionality.

In designing the CP-X10000, Hitachi also placed strong emphasis on security, as the projector features Hitachi’s proprietary My Image Campus Notification System. Anti-theft features include a security bar and transition detector.

“As projectors have become more viable solutions for very large environments, including rental and staging, the demand for advanced flexibility and connectivity is equal to the demand for brightness and clarity,” said John Glad, product manager, Hitachi Home Electronics (America), Inc., Business Group. “The CP-X10000 3LCD Professional Series projector meets all these criteria while maintaining an affordable price point.”
