Hitachi America today introduced its CP-WU8461 and CP-WU8451 LCD projectors, two new models that offer HDBaseT capability along with improved contrast, WUXGA resolution and numerous additional enhancements. The CP-WU8461 and CP-WU8451 are aimed at mid- and large-sized auditoriums and venues.
The CP-WU8461 and CP-WU8451 are able to receive video signals from distances of more than 300 feet via HDBaseT. In addition, both projectors include a complete selection of A/V inputs including HDMI, component, S-Video and composite video, USB Type A and Type B, computer and audio. LAN, RS-232C control, remote control and monitor out connections are also provided.
The CP-WU8461 and CP-WU8451 are both WUXGA 1920×1200 resolution and 5000:1 contrast ratio as well as 6,000 and 5,000 lumens brightness, respectively. They feature exclusive Hitachi image technologies such as HDCR High Dynamic Contrast Range to yield clear images even in bright rooms, and Accentualizer, which enhances sharpness, shadow detail and other image qualities. Both models offer a DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Simulation Mode, which is ideal for viewing grayscale medical images, such as X-rays, for training and educational purposes.
The CP-WU8461 and CP-WU8451 provide motorized focus, zoom and lens shift, allowing adjustment of the image via the supplied remote control. Digital keystone (horizontal and vertical) correction, Hitachi’s exclusive Perfect Fit image correction and 360-degree display rotation enable precise positioning of the image and facilitate installation. In addition to their supplied 2.0x zoom lens, four optional additional lenses are available to accommodate a wide variety of projection distances.
