Hitachi Announces Plans for a New Interactive Projector for the Corporate Market

ORLANDO, Florida, June 15, 2011 — At InfoComm 2011, Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group is showing a new Interactive Projector designed specifically for corporate environments.

The BZ-1 will raise the standard for performance by combining interactive whiteboard functionality with Hitachi's industry-leading projector technology.

The BZ-1 will be ideal for business applications, offering easy setup even in rooms where space is limited, with an ultra-short-throw lens that enables it to be mounted close to a wall or projection surface. This prevents obstructed images and shadows, with no light shining in the presenter's eyes. The user can write, draw, and manipulate and resize projected images by using Hitachi's pen-sized Interactive Control. Users can also save, print and email projected images.

The BZ-1 will feature a simple menu system that provides ready access to all functions. Data can be exported as HTML, BMP, JPEG, PNG, or PDF. The BZ-1 also offers a variety of video and audio inputs and high-quality optics for clear and sharp images. The model can also function as s table top display.
