Hitachi Intros CP-X400 Projector


3/22/2007—Hitachi America has introduced a new model in its CP-series digital projection lineup. The new CP-X400 is a three-panel LCD projector designed for both portble and instalation applications.

Details on the new model are scant at the moment, including some tecniical data and pricing. What we do know is that the CP-X400 offers a brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, lower than other X4xx projectors Hitachi manufactures, but it's also lighter, weighing in at 7.7 pounds.

Some of the other known features include:

  • Built-in 6 watt speaker;
  • Manual 1:1.2 zoom;
  • "Standard" video connections and RS-232 control; and
  • Digital keystone correction.

For security, the new model includes a transition detector, Kensington lock, and PIN lock protection. And it includes standard Hitachi projector features, such as My Screen, My Memory, and My Button.

We'll bring you more details when they become available.
