Hitachi Home Electronics (America), Inc., Business Group, introduces the new CP-X3010N 3LCD projector.
The CP-X3010N offers brightness of 3,000 lumens, a 2000:1 contrast ratio and networking capability. The CP-X3010N features 16 watts of built-in audio, eliminating the need for external speakers, while maintaining a low noise rating of 29 dBA in Eco Mode. Additionally, the CP-X3010N has a lamp life of 3,000 hours in Standard Mode and 6,000 hours in Eco Mode.
Hitachi’s proprietary My Buttons functionality allows two programmable buttons on the projector to execute any projector command. The CP-X3010N also offers input Source Naming, allowing users to rename input sources to fit their needs. Closed Captioning functionality is also available with the CP-X3010N.
Alongside the introduction of the CP-X3010N, is the release of Hitachi’s Projector Management Application (PJMan) Version 7. This proprietary technology provides the functionality to control, diagnose and manage an individual or group of Hitachi projectors from a single location. The ability to produce queries and reports in real time is a new feature of this latest version, providing AV/IT managers with the ability to gather real-time and historical data to analyze projector usage and produce call tickets.
Additionally, Hitachi’s Projector Control Application (PJCtrl) allows a user to control the functions of their Hitachi Projector through a toolbar on their desktop or laptop PC. Since all of the functions for controlling the projector are on the PC, PJCtrl helps to reduce costs associated with lost remote controls and battery replacement.
Users can control up to five of the same Hitachi projectors simultaneously and can be customized to suit the user’s individual preferences and needs with PJCtrl. It also has an advanced control menu that is ideal for installation and maintenance. Depending on the projector model, users can control Hitachi projectors via a direct RJ-45 connection, an 802.11 b/g wireless connection, or an external Ethernet-to-Serial device.
With the importance of campus security, Hitachi’s proprietary My Image functionality allows AV/IT administrators to transfer still images, such as emergency alerts, from a PC to each projector on the network. When the My Image function is utilized, the images are automatically displayed on all the projectors, including the projectors that are not in use at the time. This is ideal for applications in which multiple projectors are networked across a large space, such as a school, campus or large corporate environment. My Image is ideal for sending presentation images ahead to a projector, sending morning announcements to rooms on campus or sending important notifications.
Also, Hitachi’s Projector Messenger Application (“PJMessenger”) software allows an administrator to send real-time (or stored) text messages that appear on the screen of the projector. This is ideal for sending campus wide announcements and important notifications. When used in conjunction with the scheduling function, notifications can be shown at preset times, making each screen a virtual message board.
