Hitachi America added the 8000+ Series 3LCD projectors to its high-end projector line up: CP-X8800, CP-WX8650, CP-WX8750, CP-WU8600 and CP-WU8700. The 8000+ Series projectors have HDBaseT inputs, multiple interchangeable lenses, Accentualizer and High Dynamic Contrast Range (HDCR), Image Optimizer technology as well as 360 rotation capability. Brightness specs range between 6000 to 8000 lumens, depending on the model. All the projectors are XGA (1024×768) or WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution.
Unique features include edge blending and warping 360-degree projection and they can be mounted at an angle (including at 90-degrees) for portrait projection.
All five models are integrated with their Color Management technology that they claim allows users to change hue, saturation and luminance of the six colors (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow) individually. This feature allows you to isolate the colors to only change one specific color at a time. The Accentualizer and HDCR also help by enhancing the shade, sharpness and gloss of the projection while increasing the contrast.
The 8000+ Series projectors include Hitachi’s Status Monitoring System that produces information about the projector’s operational status in real-time on a rear panel LED screen. Additional advanced features also include motorized lens shift, zoom and focus; center lens design; picture by picture; picture in picture and DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Simulation Mode. Every model is equipped to be compatible with five interchangeable lenses suitable for various screen sizes and installation environments. The lenses include the FL-701, SL-712, ML-713, LL-704 and UL-705. The 8000+ Series models are embedded with control capabilities compatible with Crestron Connected, AMX Device Discovery and Extron XTP.
