– The Projectors Are Used For Visually Oriented Classroom Instruction Including Biology And Histology Labs –
Demonstrating the widescreen and HD capabilities of Hitachi CP-WX625 3LCD projectors, the Phoenix College campus of Maricopa Community Colleges recently upgraded to CP-WX625 projectors for several of its classrooms. The projectors were sold through Troxell Communications.
Installed this past summer, the Hitachi CP-WX625 projectors are currently being utilized for classroom applications such as biology, where detailed display is crucial to the learning experience. â€œWe needed improved quality projection capability in order to provide students with crisp detail necessary for visually oriented instruction,â€? said Dr. Robin Cotter, an instructor in the biology department at Phoenix College. â€œWe are currently using two projectors in my combined classroom, which accommodates more than 70 students.â€œ
Prior to the upgrade to the Hitachi projectors, the school relied on a variety of technologies for their presentation needs, which were less than convenient. â€œWe had a projector on a cart that we had to share, which often created scheduling conflicts, so convenience was an important factor for acquiring the Hitachi projectors,â€? said Dr. Patricia Finkenstadt, who teaches anatomy and physiology at Phoenix College.
Dr. Finkenstadt uses a CP-WX625 projector connected to a camera system to project dissections in her lab. â€œBeing able to display these dissections in fine detail requires a projector that can display high-resolution images,â€? Dr. Finkenstadt said. â€œI also use a lot of slides in my histology classes, which requires high-resolution projection as well.â€?
The CP-WX625 LCD projector is specially designed for use with widescreen-format laptops and imaging applications that use 16:10 aspect ratios. Additionally, the CP-WX625 features an HDMI terminal, allowing digital signals such as DVD players/recorders and HD to be transmitted digitally to the projector. A 16-watt speaker output provides sufficient audio coverage, while a hybrid filter is side-mounted, allowing for easier maintenance. Further simplifying maintenance, the CP-WX625 also features a top-door lamp, making replacement much easier.
Despite the CP-WX625â€™s sophisticated display technology, Dr. Finkenstadt has found the projectors very easy to use. â€œLearning to operate the projectors required a minimal amount of training and I can walk into the classroom, turn the projector on and be ready to go,â€? she said.
â€œThe adoption of the CP-WX625 projector by Phoenix College speaks to the productâ€™s ability to display images in applications where very high image quality is critical,â€? said Ray Soltys, Director of Sales, Hitachi Home Electronics (America), Inc., Business Group.
