Hitachi Debuts Its CP-A300N Ultimate Short Throw 3LCD Projector


CHULA VISTA, California, May 23, 2011 — Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group today introduced its CP-A300N LCD projector, featuring an ultra-short-throw lens that can project an 80-inch diagonal image at just nine inches from the front of the projector. It’s perfect for classrooms, conference rooms and other applications where space is limited, without compromising image quality.

The CP-A300N’s slim, compact design, light weight (8.6 lbs) and ultra-short-throw lens enable it to be easily mounted close to a projection screen or whiteboard, which prevents obstructed images and shadows, and avoids light shining in the presenter’s eyes. The CP-A300N can project bright images up to 100 inches from a distance of only 26 inches, with 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness, a 2000:1 contrast ratio and XGA resolution. The projector offers HDMI, S-Video and composite video inputs, USB and RGB computer video connections, stereo mini-jack, RCA and microphone audio inputs, and audio and video outputs.

The CP-A300N includes an RJ-45 Ethernet jack for connection to a local area network (LAN), which allows the projector to display content from a remote location and be operated and maintained via the network. A built-in 10-watt amplifier and speaker eliminate the need to connect external speakers, and the mic input works even if the projector is in standby mode.

The Hitachi CP-A300N offers Perfect Fit technology, which simplifies installations by allowing for correction of all four corners and four sides of the image, eliminating problems such as barrel or pincushion distortion. In addition, the CP-A300N is available with an optional 6-axis wall mount. The projector’s Template function displays four types of line templates, making it easier to write on a whiteboard. Hitachi’s exclusive Input Source Naming feature lets the user customize the names of input sources instead of using the factory default settings. The CP-A300N also offers easy maintenance with features such as a 4,000-hour hybrid filter, which requires less frequent cleaning and makes longer operation possible.

The remote control has customizable MyButton and MySource keys to create shortcuts to frequently used functions and sources. The operating frequency of the projector’s remote can be changed to avoid conflict with fluorescent lights or IrDA IR signals from notebook computers. The CP-A300N includes a Kensington Lock anti-theft slot, a security sensor that disables the projector if it is moved without authorization, closed captioning capability, a power saving mode, a hybrid air/fan filter that allows easier and less frequent maintenance and other convenience features. An optional wall-mount arm is available.
