Hitachi America is introducing its CP-BW301WN and CP-BX301WN Short Throw LCD projectors designed for classroom installation that demands a projector refresh utilizing the existing wall-arm mount.
The new CP-BW301WN provides WXGA 1280×800 resolution with 3,000 lumens brightness and CP-BX301WN provides XGA 1024×768 resolution with 3,200 lumens brightness for more vivid and realistic images up to 150 inches diagonal. Both Short Throw projectors offer a Throw Ratio of 0.4:1 and deliver a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and lamp life up to 10,000 hours.
The projectors compact size and light weight (13.6″ x 11.9″ x 3.4″, 8.4 lbs.) make them easy to install on a wall-arm mount or place on a tabletop or other surface. They include two HDMI inputs, two computer and composite video inputs, a video monitor out and multiple audio connections. In addition, the CP-BW301WN and CP-BX301WN provide USB Type A and USB Type B ports, an RS232 connection for remote system control and an RJ-45 port that enables the projector to be remotely controlled and monitored via LAN. The CP-BW301WN and CP-BX301WN can also receive and display notifications and other information from a centralized location via a school’s LAN using Hitachi’s PJMessenger function.
