– The CP-X308 features a brightness of 2,600 ANSI lumens at a weight of 8.8 pounds. —

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, www.hitachi.us, November 26, 2007 — Effectively raising the standard for performance and connectivity in large venues and education environments, Hitachi America, Ltd., Ubiquitous Platform Systems Division today introduced the CP-X308 3LCD projector. The CP-X308 features wireless connectivity and networking capabilities, providing an unprecedented variety of setup and management options.

Thanks to the CP-X308‘s built-in networking feature, users can monitor and manage one or more projectors from a single remote location, using Hitachi‘s proprietary PJ Man software. This simplifies the control, maintenance and security issues inherent with any projector system. Users can easily monitor the status of the projector (or many projectors), as power on/off, input source, lamp/filter hours and condition are all on display. Moreover, the software allows for control over these functions. Additionally, users can schedule power on/off events on an hourly, daily and weekly basis. Events can be applied to an individual or group of Hitachi projectors. Other features such as e-mail alerts for scheduled maintenance or error conditions, as well as password protection, give the user a new level of control at no extra charge.

The CP-X308 boasts 2,600 ANSI lumens of brightness and native XGA resolution at a light weight of 8.8 pounds. The CP-X308 features 802.11 b/g connectivity, allowing up to four PC‘s to connect wirelessly. The CP-X308 also offers a variety of wired connectivity options, including component, composite and S-Video inputs, as well as two RGB inputs and one RGB output.

Added security features include a Kensington slot and security bar. To further simplify maintenance, the CP-X308 features a side-mounted high-performance filter and top door lamp. The CP-X308 offers a low fan noise of 29 dB (in Whisper Mode), a built-in 7-watt audio output, and a remote control with Hitachi‘s My Buttons feature. When making initial settings or when the screen would be blank, Hitachi‘s My Screen function allows users to display a preset company logo, school name or other still picture once the projector is turned on.

“As IT and A/V technologies continue to integrate, the demand for computerized management of the technology has risen,” said Pete Denes, vice president of sales, Hitachi America, Ltd., Ubiquitous Platform Systems Division, Business Group. “The CP-X308 offers new levels of convenience and functionality, making the management of presentation technology easier and more effective than ever before.”
