ORLANDO, Florida, June 15, 2011 — At InfoComm 2011, Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group is announcing the introduction of its CP-X2514WN 3LCD projector, upgraded from the previous model with the addition of wireless operation and
networking capability. Ideal for use in medium-size classrooms and boardrooms, the CP-X2514WN delivers 2,700 ANSI lumens brightness with XGA resolution and a 3000:1 contrast ratio, and offers a host of useful performance and convenience features.
The CP-X2514WN's optional wireless capability enables a laptop or desktop computer to be connected to the projector without cables, making it much easier to start presentations and lessons and it eliminates the need to place the computer close to the projector.
The CP-X2514WN offers networking capability, allowing it to be remotely controlled via a LAN network connection. Hitachi's exclusive PJMan® Projector Management software gives users the ability to operate and monitor the CP-X2514WN from a remote location, and receive diagnostic information. The projector's Campus Notification System, which allows administrators to take control and display pre-stored images to each projector on the network, is also equipped with an audio alarm.
The CP-X2514WN features Crestron RoomViewâ„¢ software, providing a custom configurable interface to monitor, manage and control every device in every room remotely from any computer. Built-in network connectivity provides instant status and remote technical support so a presentation is never interrupted.
The CP-X2514WN offers Multi-Projector functionality, allowing users to project the same image to up to 12 different projectors simultaneously. This is useful for meetings and lectures in large venues where a single screen would not be sufficient. In addition, the CP-X2514WN's Moderator Control Mode lets users network 50 computers to a single projector, with one computer acting as the moderator. The presenter can use the moderator computer to select and project images from the students' computers.
The CP-X2514WN weighs just 8.2 pounds and measures 12.5 x 3.9 x 11.3 inches and can project images up to 300 inches, making it easy to install in a wide variety of locations. A unique Hitachi feature is the projector's Template function that displays white or black lines, making writing on a whiteboard or blackboard easier. The projector's exclusive Whiteboard Mode adjusts the projector's brightness when used with a whiteboard, reducing glare and eye strain.
The Hitachi CP-X2514WN provides HDMI, S-Video and composite video inputs, RGB computer video inputs and a monitor output, two RCA audio inputs, and an audio output. It includes a built-in 16-watt amplifier and speaker and has an audio pass-through function that enables the audio to play through the projector's audio output even in standby mode when only sound is required. The CP-X2514WN's RS-232C enables it to be controlled as part of an integrated A/V system.
The CP-X2514WN offers numerous additional convenience and performance features. Its Input Source Naming function lets the user customize the names of input sources instead of using the factory default settings. The projector has a long lamp life of 3,000 hours in Standard mode and 6,000 hours in Eco (power saving) mode.
The projector's remote offers MyMemory, MyText, MySource and MyScreen buttons for fast access to frequently used functions and sources. Additional features include a Kensington slot, security bar and security sensor that disables the projector if it is moved without authorization, closed captioning capability, an easy access lamp door and filter cover, and a hybrid filter design that requires less-frequent cleaning, enabling longer operation.
