Hitachi Debuts Ultra-Short-Throw Classroom Projector
Hitachi this week debuted a new projector for the education market, the CP-A100. The new 3LCD model is capable of projecting a 60-inch image from a range of 1.4 feet. So teaching class in the broom closet shouldn't be a problem anymore ... aside from the crowding.
The new model isn't just about short throw distance. It's also networkable to allow for remote operation and monitoring. And, aside from its ability to be ceiling mounted, it can also be positioned horizontally or vertically.
Other features include:
- Brightness: 2,500 ANSI lumens
- Contrast ratio: 400:1
- Security: Multi-level PIN locks, security bar, Kensington slot
- Projection modes: Whiteboard, Blackboard, Day Time
The CP-A100 is expected to ship by the end of October for $2,995.
