Hitachi Provides Added Functionality And Convenience With Introduction of CPX417 Projector

– The CP-X417 features wireless connectivity and networking functionality, providing unprecedented versatility and performance. —

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, www.hitachi.us, December 5, 2007 — Providing systems integrators with unmatched performance and remote management capabilities, Hitachi America, Ltd., Ubiquitous Platform Systems Division is now shipping its new CP-X417 3LCD projector. The CP-X417 offers wireless connectivity and networking, allowing end-users to monitor multiple projectors from a remote location.

The CP-X417 features built-in networking, allowing for the monitoring and managing of one or more projectors from a remote location. With Hitachi‘s proprietary PJ Man software, 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.

Weighing only 8.8 pounds, the Hitachi CP-X417 boasts 3,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and native XGA resolution. The CP-X417‘s 802.11 b/g wireless feature allows users to connect and present with 4 PCs simultaneously. Additionally, the CP-X417 offers two RGB inputs and one RGB output, as well as component, composite and S-Video inputs. A built-in 7-watt audio output is also available.

Customizability is another strong feature of the CP-X417. Hitachi‘s proprietary My Screen software allows users to display preset images that appear upon powering up the projector. Additionally, the CP-X417‘s remote control contains Hitachi‘s My Buttons feature, giving users the ability to customize the buttons on the remote to suit their needs.

The CP-X417 features a side-mounted high-performance filter and top door lamp for easy maintenance. Additional security features include a transition detector (a built-in sensor that recognizes when the projector has been moved), as well as a Kensington slot and security bar. The CP-X417 also has a low fan noise of 29 dB in Whisper Mode and a lamp life of 3,000 hours in Whisper Mode.

“The benefits of remote management of projectors in numerous applications, ranging from schools to corporate environments to houses of worship, has challenged manufacturers to incorporate networking technology that is both sophisticated and user-friendly,” said Pete Denes, vice president of sales, Hitachi America, Ltd., Ubiquitous Platform Systems Division, Business Group. “The introduction of the CP-X417 demonstrates Hitachi‘s ongoing commitment to provide end-users with an unmatched level of convenience, extending the intuitive operation of Hitachi projectors to include simple and effective system-wide management.”
