Phoenix College Utilizes Widescreen And HD Capabilities Of Hitachi CP-WX625 3LCD Projectors

– 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. “We needed improved quality projection capability in order to provide students with crisp detail necessary for visually oriented instruction,� said Dr. Robin Cotter, an instructor in the biology department at Phoenix College. “We are currently using two projectors in my combined classroom, which accommodates more than 70 students.“

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. “We 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,� 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. “Being able to display these dissections in fine detail requires a projector that can display high-resolution images,� Dr. Finkenstadt said. “I also use a lot of slides in my histology classes, which requires high-resolution projection as well.�

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-WX625’s sophisticated display technology, Dr. Finkenstadt has found the projectors very easy to use. “Learning 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,� she said.

“The adoption of the CP-WX625 projector by Phoenix College speaks to the product’s ability to display images in applications where very high image quality is critical,� said Ray Soltys, Director of Sales, Hitachi Home Electronics (America), Inc., Business Group.
