With Upgraded Features and Versatile Connectivity
-- Networking Capabilities, Intelligent Eco Energy-Saving Mode and Wealth of Performance
and Convenience Features Make These New 3LCD Projectors Ideal for Business and
Education --
CHULA VISTA, California, October 25, 2011 — Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media
Division, Business Solutions Group today announced the availability of its CP-X3021WN and
CP-X2521WN networkable mobile projectors, two new models that offer versatile networking
and connectivity options for business and educational applications. The 3LCD projectors
provide a host of upgraded performance and convenience features, and combine outstanding
image quality with ease of use and Intelligent Eco environmentally friendly operation.
Both projectors incorporate Hitachi’s new Intelligent Eco feature, which automatically
changes the brightness of the lamp according to the level of the input signal. The lamp
becomes brighter when the input signal is high and dimmer when the input signal is low,
reducing energy consumption and conserving lamp life. The CP-X3021WN delivers 3,200
ANSI lumens brightness while the CP-X2521WN provides 2,700 ANSI lumens.
The CP-X3021WN and CP-X2521WN offer extensive networking capabilities. Both projectors
can be remotely controlled via a local area network (LAN) connection. In addition, both
models have encrypted wireless computer connection capability via an optional available
USB wireless adapter (model USB-WL-11N). The CP-X3021WN and CP-X2521WN can
project the same computer image to a maximum of 12 projectors simultaneously via a
network, a useful feature for seminars, shareholders’ meetings, campus meeting and other
activities. In addition, the images from up to four computers can be projected onto the four
quarters of a screen. A Moderator Control Mode (MC Mode) lets a moderator control the
output of up to 50 computers through the network into the projector.
Both projectors feature Hitachi’s Campus Notification System (CNS), now with an audio alert
function, for sending campus-wide announcements and important messages throughout a
local area network. Both models’ PC-Less Presentation feature enables users to project
images directly from a USB drive or other USB storage device, eliminating the need to
connect a laptop or desktop computer.
The lightweight, compact CP-X3021WN and CP-X2521WN are designed for total ease of
use, thanks to a new, intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that can be displayed in 31
languages. Both projectors provide a 2000:1 contrast ratio and XGA resolution. Both include
a USB computer connection and an RJ-45 jack for network connectivity, along with HDMI,
component, S-video and composite video inputs, with RGB inputs and outputs, audio
connections, and an RS-232C port. The CP-X3021WN and CP-X2521WN also have a built-in
amplifier and speaker and a microphone input. Both models have 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 projectors offer numerous additional convenience and performance features. An upgraded
Template function displays white or black lines to make writing on a whiteboard or blackboard
easier, and can display a moveable world map. The CP-X3021WN and CP-X2521WN provide
improved Zoom functions to zero in on a desired portion of an image. An Input Source Naming
function lets the user customize the names of input sources. Both projectors come with a remote
that provides MyMemory, MyText, MySource and MyScreen buttons for fast access to frequently
used functions and sources. Both include automatic vertical Keystone correction, a Kensington
slot, closed captioning capability and additional features. Both models have a newly redesigned
chassis that directs the air exhaust from the front rather than the back, to not disturb audience
members who are sitting close to the back of the projector.
The CP-X3021WN and CP-X2521WN are compatible with Crestron® RoomView™ software that
enables them to integrate seamlessly with a Crestron control system.
