Rensselaer City School District Enjoys Successful Learning With More Than 50 Hitachi Projectors

LAS VEGAS, Nevada, June 13, 2012 – Located in Rensselaer NY, the Rensselaer City School District is home to a 278,000-square-foot campus that houses approximately 1,100 students in grades pre-K through 12. Completed in 2008, the fully facility is equipped with a host of audio/video educational tools including more than 50 networkable Hitachi 3LCD projectors.

“When we began looking at which A/V projectors to purchase, at first we didn’t consider that they could be networked together,” said David Howell, Network Systems Engineer, Rensselaer City School District. “However, once I found out the Hitachi projectors had networking connectivity, I realized the ability to send content and messages throughout the school and coordinate the operation of all the projectors from a single computer would be very attractive features.”

Hitachi projectors are installed throughout the facility in classrooms, plus a large instruction room and an auditorium.

“We particularly like the Live Viewer software with the newer projectors, which captures the image on a PC and sends it to the projectors via either a wired or wireless connection,” Howell added. “This keeps our teachers facing the class and gives them the freedom to be more engaging and interactive with students. We’re finding this to be especially beneficial at the junior and senior high school levels.”

Once installed, Howell found the projectors offered additional benefits. “We have a small staff, and the ability to centrally monitor all the projectors via the network saves us a lot of time,” he said. “The networking capabilities also make maintenance easier and save money on lamp replacement. The Hitachi PJMan Projector Management software tells us when the filters have to be cleaned. We do this faithfully and as a result we’re well exceeding the advertised lamp life on our projectors.”

“The PJMan software also gives us other diagnostic information so we can keep on top of potential problems and make sure the projectors are running at their coolest and most efficient,” Howell continued. “I can also send an emergency notification image to any projector to alert the operator should a problem ever occur.”

The large-venue projector in the auditorium has been a welcome addition as well. “We used to have to roll the A/V equipment in and out all the time and it was quite a hassle and time-consuming,” Howell said. “In addition to the convenience of the projector, it delivers superb image quality.”

“I really didn’t expect everything we’ve gotten from the Hitachi projectors and their networking capabilities, and have been pleasantly surprised,” Howell concluded. “We’ve enjoyed a huge return on our investment.”
