The report listed Hitachi with a 26 percent share of unit sales, almost six points higher than the second-leading brand. Additionally, Hitachi had a 20 percent share of revenues, which eclipsed the second-leading brand by more than three points. Hitachi also boasted the two top selling models in March, with the CP-X251 3LCD projector taking an 11.8 percent unit share, followed by the CP-X260 3LCD projector, which had a five percent unit share.

The CP-X251 also features two RGB inputs, MyScreen/MyMemory preset options, and a remote control with Hitachi‘s “MyButtons” function.
With 2,500 ANSI lumens of brightness, advanced connectivity and portability, the CP-X260 meets the needs of any classroom application.
