Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group is building on its worldwide-leading market share in the ultra-short throw projector category with the new CP-AW250N Ultimate Short Throw projector. The CP-AW250N surpasses industry standards for ultra-short throw projectors and also features networking functionality, which makes monitoring and maintenance easier than ever before. The CP-AW250N features a throw distance of 22 inches at an 80-inch screen when displaying content in its native WXGA resolution.
The CP-AW250N offers a high brightness of 2,500 ANSI lumens at a light weight of 8.5 pounds and also achieves a high contrast ratio of 2000:1. Hitachi’s new free-shaped lens and mirror improve throw ratio while also making the projector smaller and lighter. In addition, they improve resolution quality, vividly displaying high-definition images. The shorter throw distance and lighter weight allow for easier installations in limited space and more flexible wall mounting. The CP-AW250N also offers Perfect Fit technology, which simplifies installations by allowing for correction of all four corners and four sides of the image, eliminating problems such as barrel or pincushion distortion. In addition, the CP-AW250N is available with an optional 6-axis wall mount.
The CP-AW250N offers easy maintenance with features such as a 4,000-hour hybrid filter, which requires less frequent cleaning and makes longer operation possible. The lamp door is on top while the air filter cover slides towards the top, simplifying maintenance and replacement of these parts.
The CP-AW250N features wired networking, allowing for simultaneous control and monitoring of multiple projectors as well as image translation. In addition, Hitachi’s Messenger function enables users to transmit text data to multiple projectors on the network. The projector is equipped with a microphone input, which in conjunction with a built-in 10 watt speaker, eliminates the need for external audio equipment. The CP-AW250N also includes new USB connectivity, giving users the ability to easily and quickly deliver content from a PC via a USB cable, as well as HDMI connectivity. An optional wall mounting arm is also available.
