Hitachi America today announced the CPX9 Portable Series LCD projector, useful anywhere a lightweight, high-quality projector is needed. It weighs less than five pounds and measures just 12 x 8.7 x 3 inches. The CPX9 can project images up to 300 inches (diagonal measurement) with XGA resolution, 3,200 lumens brightness and 16.7 million colors. It features a Whiteboard Mode that adjusts the projector’s brightness when used with a whiteboard, to reduce glare and eye strain. Another feature unique to Hitachi projectors is its Template function that displays lines, circles or a world map, making it easier to write on an interactive whiteboard.
The CPX9 provides HDMI, S-Video and composite video inputs, an RGB computer video input and monitor output, two RCA audio inputs, and an audio output. It includes a built-in speaker and an audio pass-through function that enables the audio to play through the projector’s audio output even in standby (lamp off) mode when only sound is required. The CPX9 has a RS-232C port that enables it to be controlled as part of an integrated A/V system.
A soft case is included as a standard accessory for use as a mobile projector. Its Input Source Naming feature lets the user customize the names of input sources instead of using the factory default settings. 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 Lock and transition detector that disables the projector if it is moved without authorization, a power saving mode (less than 0.5W in Eco Mode) and closed captioning capability. The CPX9 is designed for easy maintenance, with a hybrid air/fan filter that allows less frequent cleaning (default 5000 hours free maintenance), and an easy access lamp compartment.For more information head over to www.hitachi-america.us/digitalmedia
