Hitachi Offers Networking Capability And Lower Cost Of Ownership With New LCD Projectors Which Offer Remote Monitoring and Management Functionality and a New 2,000-Hour Hybrid Filter
Hitachi America, Ltd., Ubiquitous Platform Systems Division today introduced the CP-X206 and CP-X306 3LCD projectors, offering versatility and performance for a variety of environments. The CP-X206 and CP-X306 offer remote control and maintenance via a LAN connection, while Hitachi’s proprietary My Image technology allows administrators to send still images to every projector on the network.
The Hitachi CP-X206 and CP-X306 projectors feature Hitachi PJMan software, allowing users to control and monitor multiple projectors via a web browser without having to download and install application software. This allows administrators to monitor for functions such as lamp life on every projector on the network from a single, remote location. Additionally, the timing of switching the projector’s power on and off can be automatically scheduled from a computer.
The CP-X206 and CP-X306 projectors feature a new hybrid filter, allowing for 2,000 hours before replacement, located on the side of the chassis, making it accessible no matter how the projector is mounted. Both models contain a top door lamp, enabling easy replacement when the projector is ceiling mounted.
Addressing the issue of security, administrators can transfer still images to every projector on the network, thanks to the My Image function. The images will be automatically displayed on every projector, regardless of whether or not they are in use at the time. This is particularly useful in emergency situations when a notification needs to be sent immediately across a large area.
The CP-X206 projector offers 2,200 lumens of brightness, while the CP-X306 offers 2,600 lumens. Both models weigh 7.7 pounds and feature a 500:1 contrast ratio. They also feature 7 Watts of built-in audio, eliminating the need for external speakers. The CP-X206 and CP-X306 boast a low noise rating of 29 dB in Whisper Mode.
The CP-X206 and CP-X306 also offer anti-theft features such as a Transition Detector (requires a password to operate the projector when moved from a fixed position). Both projectors also offer PIN Lock and MyScreen Lock, as well as a security bar.
